Love Doing Faceups

Howdy once again, Internet~Land! My Elliece’s new faceup is finally done, and I love her new look. The new Resinsoul Mei head in white looks so much better with the rest of the body. It’s actually a little whiter than the body (since it’s brand new & the body is second hand). As of now, she’s in the straight white wig, but that may still change. I’m thinking of looking for a long, straight, grey wig, but not sure yet. I’ve posted a new video showing her faceup process, and I hope it can be helpful to those who are still fairly new (like me) to doing faceups. I had fun designing her face and am now ready to start designing clothes for her. I have already drafted the “Basic Pattern Pieces Set,” though it’s not quite finalized & ready to post yet (next week). I’m also working on the video to design & sew her new gown. So much BJD sewing fun is coming soon! In the meantime, here is her faceup journey. Enjoy!

Loving the WHOLE Weekend!

Hello, hello, Internet~Land! You find me extremely content right now. We were able to finish out the work week with no overtime, so I had my whole Friday at home. I was super happy to get a new paper doll set started (pics after the video link), this new video updating you on some current projects, as well as getting some laundry folded & dispersed. I can’t believe summer is just about to end, and fall is right around the corner! I’m excited about some of the things I want to do this fall & winter. I was going through my notebook of ideas thinking that I hope I have enough time to accomplish all of them! Stay tuned for lots more patterns, paper dolls, tutorials, and other fun dolly items! Now to lay my head to my soft, squishy pillow for some sleep before enjoying the rest of my weekend!

Our Mini-Vacation

Hello, Internet~Land! Well, we’re back safe & sound from our little trip up north to Seattle, Washington. We drove up to attend “Interactive Introverts” with Dan & Phil from YouTube. It was a really fun trip, and good to get away for a little bit. We also went up to Seattle last December to see Rhett & Link’s “Tour of Mythicality”, but this time we were right down town. We stayed at the Moore Hotel, which is the same building as the Moore Theatre, so it was really fun to look out our window and see Dan & Phil’s tour bus and truck right below us.

Then, after the show, we walked about to look for a good place to have dinner. We ate at a great Vietnamese restaurant, and enjoyed pho with fresh red basil. It was also served with some little sliced peppers, and I made the mistake of tasting one ~ WOW! My lips and tongue burned for the next half hour! I think it was just supposed to go in the soup to add flavor. Lesson learned! Once dinner was done, we walked down towards the famous Pike’s Market and were pleased to find The Purple Store!

I bought a hand-tie-dyed t-shirt with the store logo that is featured on their home page. Check it out for all-things-purple! All in all, it was both a fun and relaxing trip … but then again, I didn’t have to drive. I was free to sight see as my daughter endured the freeway traffic ~ magnificently, I might add. While watching the scenery pass by, I was very disturbed to see the trees full of GIANT spider webs!!! I tried to take photos, but it’s hard at 70 miles an hour. In any event, I’ll post the best one, so you can get chills as well! The webs are in the left side of the photo … ewwww …

KODAK Digital Still Camera

I guess that brings us to the end of my update. I’ll close by letting you know I posted a new video and a new little pattern on the “Ready To Print” page. The video is a pants sewing tutorial, and the pattern is for making a variety of sizes of fashion doll stockings (image shown after the video link). Enjoy, and here’s wishing you a great remainder of your weekend!

Time for a Trip!

Greetings & Salutations, Internet~Land! I hope this post finds you all happy & healthy! We are enjoying a bit of anticipation, as we are about to make a short trip up north to Seattle! We have had this planned for a long time, but I didn’t want you to be neglected while we were away. 🙂 So ~ I have a new set of paper doll outfits ready for you. These will fit my latest paper doll, Mae. Her complete collection can be viewed on the “Free Stuff” page, and I have already updated the PDF file on the “Ready To Print” page. When opened, you will find the doll and all her outfits in the file. I also recorded a video drawing this set. Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!

A “New-to-Me” Machine!

Howdy, howdy, friends in Internet~Land! This has been an interesting week. I was finally able to have my industrial sewing machine delivered to my house. Once here, it was time to clean it up and get it running. All was well until the motor decided to seize up and fill my garage with smoke! Well, no worries ~ it came with an extra motor. And as I seem to be classified as “dauntless,” I decided to switch it out myself (with a little help from my girls). So come along as we get it ready to sew!
