SweetNDoll BJD Box Opening

IMG_3852

In the past 6 months, I have come to love doll collecting, something that I’ve actually done my entire life, but only recently got back into.  I think they call this being a “kiddult” :) Or maybe it’s just weird.  Call it what you may, but something I have come to realize is that I found how to use my imagination again and how to enjoy creating things again, which are things I haven’t been able to do since I was a kid.  I hated that feeling of not being able to “play” anymore and really, really missed that awesome feeling of getting lost in another world like I used to when I played with dolls as a kid.  When I was really small, I played with babies.

I have been taking a bit of a break from blogging lately.  I have had zero interest in writing or even turning on my laptop.  I think it’s partly because of the dark days of winter and because I’ve been working a lot on my crochet.  I made this afghan for my mom for Christmas. Continue reading

IMG_3208-1

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. If Lovesprung made clothing in my size, then I’d definitely wear them.  Lovesprung is owned and operated by Aki, who has been very sweet and easy to work with. All the items in Lovesprung are handmade and come in limited quantities, so you know what you are getting is very unique in the BJD world.  I had the awesome opportunity to work with Aki. She was very generous in sending me a beautiful camisole for my darling Antigone from Aerial BJD. Continue reading

As you have already noticed, I’ve been really getting into doll collecting and, most recently, I’ve discovered the world of ball jointed dolls (BJD).  I recently bought/adopted a Peak’s Woods Lady Bee, which is a 1/4 sized BJD. She is currently out getting a new face (faceup) from someone I’ve gotten to know recently.  Anyway, I wasn’t too happy with this dolls eyes either. Continue reading
