the date of up

I’ve slowly been trying to find some more time for my dollies. Since the update has been so long in coming, I’ve realized that there’s been some shifting of dolls since I last joined you. I now have 9 Blythes, 2 Pullips (one in pieces), 1 Taeyang, and 1 Dal. 2 Blythes were sold and went to live elsewhere (ADG MM and MSR)

Here’s the current B-fam.

1. Garnet 2. Clever 3. Alonza

4. Dell 5. Cade 6. Fisk

7. Pollen 8. Florrie 9. ?

Florrie and my Veronica Lace arrived this month and I love them both so much. I now have as many RBLs as SBLs. I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed by 9 girls but I’m not sure if any will be up for adoption or not. If so, it would probably be Dell and/or Cade. But they are Garnet and Alonza’s BFFs, so what are you going to do?

I keep wondering who Alonza’s true twinnie is. She tells me she has one. I thought for sure it was Aubrena but now I’m not so sure. I think it’s more likely it’s another hybrid RBL with an Aubrey scalp.Alonza needs some love, and perhaps a new spring.

What to name Veronica Lace? She is my fairy tale girl with her crazy gleer (glitter deer) Ram and Jam. My two options thusfar are Grimm or Rampion, which is Francais for Rapunzel.

I’m so thrilled about Florrie. She is the CUTEST doll, no contest. I’m not rushing them, but I think Clever might finally, finally have a BFF. I’ve always wanted a custom Ebony since I saw dolli*fever’s Piper. I thought I would trim her bangs but now I think it’s part of her personality to have slightly shaggy hair.

And for the days that I just have to say F-the-world! there’s Brea and her dolly Molly Weasley to watch over me.

I do love my Jun Planning dolls…I adore Bax and Minou the Pullip/Taeyang couple, they are fun to dress up and have such a style. Brea, likewise, is like no other doll and has her own personality, no contest. However, the quality of the dolls is just disappointing. I hate their floppy bodies and fragile appendages and I don’t have money/time to waste in getting them new bodies.  I have another Pullip I kind of accidentally won on ebay. She’s gorgeous but her limbs are all fractured and I just want to sell her and not deal with having to fix it. Plus what i like about my other Pullip is that she’s so quirky and not just pretty pretty, so having one who is so traditionally pretty would take away from that. I also hate hate their wigs and the poor qualitiy of them. I wish they had rooted hair.

So close to being done with baby blanket Zen!

here she is

She needs a name….I wanted Fenchurch, but someone else is using it, and I don’t want to be lame. and I also like Fisk, but it’s not quite right. I am leaning towards an F name but that can change.

AAAAAA I love her!

Life in August

Everything new is old again.  I love my new job but it’s of course as exausting as any teaching job, although second-year teaching is NOT first year teaching by any means and I have a bag of tricks now that make everyday things much easier.

My OMGZ!!1! Full time job blythe arrived from Hong Kong. She’s an EBONY! I love her mucho! (will I be able to speak Spanish by the end of this year?) Michelle of course has cornered the market on Ebonies, so I’m just a copycat at this point, but I still think she’s grand. I haven’t though of name for her yet. When I ordered her I thought I’d customize her a bit, but now I doubt I will do anything except switch her chips and gaze correct her. I have a bunch of the new ixtee chips in the mail.

Name ideas: Zyta, Avenue, Tierra del Sol (the name of my new school in Spanish), Osprey, Gambrel, something german, an F name, a M name, an L name…? At one point yesterday I was delirious with tired and trying to come up with an a name and suggested “Jazz Hands.”  Omar suggested a few good ones which I forgot, one being WiFi.

She is doll number seven and I think Fable wants to be her BFF. Poor Clever is just not loved.

I have NO idea where our camera is, so there won’t be any pictures for awhile. Honestly, this place is a huge, huge mess. We have not settled at all from moving and there’s too much stuff here with Omar’s mom’s stuff and ours.

There’s so much to do for school and we are months behind with laundry and everything else. Sigh. I wonder if we will ever acheieve any sort of balance again.

She was the hardest to name. I gave up on Aven “Aventurine” because I just didn’t think it fit.

This is Fable. I have cut her weird tendrils and dressed her in some sketchy Blythism jumper from M. that seems to fit her name 🙂

Nighty night!

Cloth napkin from Target is now a doll duvet. Rainbow sheets from donated fabric. 🙂

OMG, I know, I have a double bed and three dolls on the way. What will happen??? I may make a little flip futon from the leftover foam.

OMG #2, I should call STA Gambrel. I LOVE Gambrel quail. I’ve been known to chase them just to get a closer look.

I can’t believe my love of Bea Arthur completely blinded me to the fact that I stole the name Bea. I’ve been considering a few others for her…I think Cade is really my favorite, short for Arcadia. But here are some more that aren’t registered, for fun.

Don’t you feel like STA should have an animal name?

  • Bryn
  • Beryl
  • Cubby
  • Oryx
  • Polliwog
  • Gosling
  • Cade
  • Cygnet
  • Prufrock
  • Loris
