Dollie Ramblings

Random ramblings about what I’m working on.

*big breath* It’s been way too long since I’ve done anything dollie related.  It’s been like I’m stuck and have had absolutely no inspiration or incentive to create anything.  The thought just made me want to go stick my head in a hole… which I did. Well, I got to get over it.  My body […]

We lost a beautiful person yesterday.   I’ll say more later… right now my heart hurts too much.  I’m gonna miss you honey!

So I’m bouncing from one doll idea to an other again… but have been trying to concentrate on my St. Paddy doll since there is a deadline on this one.  Her name is Eithne.  She was originally a surf city Midge (just like Sienna… yeah, I have a couple of these dolls 😉 ) I’ve […]

I knew about this place before, but I never really “looked”.  Shame on me!  OMG… what cool stuff they have!  From tiny little buckles to studs to thin tooling leather!  I needed some buckles for my leprechaun’s hat and came across their site again.  Needless to say… I put in an order for more than […]

I decided to attempt making some fairy wings using cellophane and gallery glass… and am experimenting with embossing powder.  Cool stuff!  I love how it kind of bubbles on the wings. This picture isn’t the best… but it’s a picture?

My son wanted a black jean jacket.  Do you think we could find such a thing?  Noooooo…. but we found a blue one at a thrift store that was in good shape.  And I have black Rit Dye that I had purchased awhile ago to dye a Jakks doll black (the drow I’ve been wanting […]

I’ve finished Atalanta’s quiver finally… And her bow, plus she now has a headband. Now I just got to decide how I’m gonna make her arrows and then do it.  Then a stand and seal her face.  Home stretch!

I’ve been trying to create a tutorial for tooling a leather bustier using petite goat tooling leather… I’m working on my third try and I’ve finally realized that I don’t like the goat.  It’s surface is too soft for what I’m wanting to do.  And too grainy.  I’m gonna have figure something else out. I […]
