Antigone Wears a Camisole by Lovesprung


Lovesprung is a lovely dolly boutique on Etsy.  I have long since admired Lovesprung’s uniquely fashionable BJD clothes.  I fell in love with this Windowpane patterned crop top and skirt set.  It’s simply gorgeous.

I’m Coping


I have been coping remarkably well with the change in seasons this year.  The transition from summer to fall happened really slowly for us and I still don’t even really feel like it’s been that cold.  I’m not sure what that means for later on in the winter, probably it will be a long and cold one, but so far so good.  I’ve found a new hobby, if you couldn’t tell.  I’ve been getting in touch with my inner kiddult and am finding how much I enjoy collecting dolls.  I actually just got one back today from getting its face painted and I’ll very happily show you it sometime this week.

Silicone Molds by MoldMuse Review: Part 2


As promised in an earlier post, here is the second part to the MoldMuse review.  Here I am going to show you what I created and how the process was for me.

I had a ton of fun using the molds sent to me by MoldMuse.  I really love using molds when working with polymer clay because it just makes the process a lot more rewarding for me. I think since I like to have things perfect that molds are the best way to achieve this when working with something as malleable as polymer clay.   Continue reading
