Doll Jewelry is FRUSTRATING!

Making doll jewelry is so frustrating! I just finished one of a design I had in the back of my head but hadn’t sat down to actually work on it. It was very frustrating I probably wont do something like that again. (Maybe.) It does look really pretty, it’s just really difficult since I bought a thinner chain so it would look more in-scale.ย Alsoย if I do it again the clasp will be magnetic as it is very difficult to close with a barrel one.

Let me know what you guys think.

Another Doll Incoming…What’s wrong with me? :D

My Islanddoll Norse Myth Odin arrived to Denver Doll Emporium on Friday. I’m excited but sadly I have to wait till next Friday to pay him off and get him home. I got him in Island skin. I haven’t made anything for him clothes wise, as I’ve never had a doll of his stature. I did get a couple shoes. I just hope they fit, since the Twins tried them on and it was a struggle and I think Odin’s feet are bigger.

I got him with jointed hands, so I’m going to see how many poses they can hold before I wire them. I also already have his eyes and wig. He’s probably is going to be eyeless for a while since I have no idea where I placed my eye putty. -sigh- I’d loose my head if it wasn’t attached. I lost the eye putty a while ago, that’s why I had to put kneaded eraser to hold the Twins’ eyes. T-T Hopefully I find my putty before Odin arrives at the atelier.

I also hope he arrives before I leave for vacation. The hubby and I are going to visit our parents in Puerto Rico. I decided to take Ellie along with us. I’ll try to remember to blog about my experience with travelling with an SD size doll in the airplane and how we made it through the TSA. I hope all goes smoothly and we all arrive safely to our destinations. We will be leaving on the 18th of this month and will be coming back on August 1st. I might post while on vacation but I make no promises. ๐Ÿ™‚

See ya later!

Random Small Update!

I randomly started making clothes for Ellie today. I guess it’s not completely random, since I am taking her on vacation with me soon. She has a lot of shoes but barely any clothes. XD
I am fixing that today for some reason. And I don’t want it to be Monday, so I can keep making her clothes and accessories. Sadly it will be Monday tomorrow but at least it’s a short work week so I can get back to sewing faster. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll try to post pictures later. I also have been meaning to post a few reviews and doll finds but I haven’t taken pictures of the items. o.O I get distracted easily by my bed so I nap instead. But I will try to get those things up later today. (The hubby wants to go to Gamestop and Target. Hopefully I find something for the dolls.)

See ya later!

Small Update and Another Second Hand Iplehouse doll on layaway!!

I have been bitten by the Iplehouse bug and it feels great. Well not so much on the wallet but that’s why I save.
So this other Iplehouse doll will be a discontinued Mars. I just love his sweet face. I even have a character for him. But for me to finish the character fully I need to other a few things from Iplehouse, so I might do a small group order over on DoA. Not sure yet.

Working on making some clothing for Ellie. Will see how that turns out. Almost done with Bibiane’s layaway, so excited about that. Also I’m trying to get better at drawing so I’m taking time to do that whenever I can.

That’s all for now.
