I thought it'd be fun if we all shared pictures of our girls. 

Here's my Blythe family:

Lots more pics of my girls on my flickr.  I'm doing a 365 with Hazel (my mini me) so she's getting the most attention lately!

I just bought all five of the My Little Pet Shop Blythe's. I am so new to Blythe's that I am still learning all the lingo. I am still not sure what kind of Blythe I have. I do love them.

I am really going to follow this swap and I hope I can fill a swap slot too. I have no clue what to do in the Blythe world. Total newbie. :)

those are probably mini blythes.  I'm wondering if they can be unminied easily like the mini pullips.  i found the tiny body to be really awful.  might go pick one up...

Sure!  A 23 cm obitsu body is slightly larger than a Blythe body....comparable to a Pullip I think?  I'd love to see a picture of her!

What you have are petite Blythes.  I have three of those as well...one made by Takara (same as the full size "Neo" Blythes) and two of the Hasbro Littlest Pet Shop Blythes.  They are adorable, but oh so tiny!  I've never made clothes for them, but have knit a headband.  I need to pay more attention to them, though!

Full size Blythes are around 12" tall and the petites are around 4".
Here's a comparison shot:

Minis!!  I've heard that the Takara's are slightly thinner than the Hasbro ones.

I'm hoping to play!!  My girls love Valentine's day!

So, apparently, for anyone who is interested, you can get a blythe knockoff (blybe) from thailand on ebay for 25 plus shipping.  They look like exact copies, like they made a mold with actual blythe dolls.

Why yes you can!!  Here's our Blybe.  You can get them even cheaper if you get the bank ($10-12) and then transplant them. 

Here's our Blue:

I loved dolls as a child, but was totally creeped out by Blythes when I first saw them a few years ago online.  But the more I saw pictures, the more they grew on me. Now, I'm obsessed!  :D

Imafundork. wow a reroot!!  You're brave.  I'm going to venture into customizing my Minra a bit, but I'm only doing eyechips ATM. 

I've changed out eyehips on all my girls, gave two of them sleep eyes and painted some eyelids.  I have grand plans for Roslyn's makeover, but have to admit the wool reroot scares me!  I bought the wool six months ago and it's just been sitting here taunting me!  It's a goal of mine for 2011!  :)

Gatorwrangler: Welcome to the swap!  I'll get your feedback started tomorrow night when I get home from work.  All of your girls are gorgeous, but I especially love Hollis!  Is she a Baby's Breath?

Organizer's Note: I added two questions to the questionnaire after reading Gatorwrangler's.  I had totally forgot about allergens!  :P

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!  I'm off to bed.  I have to be up in five hours and have a 13 1/2 hour work day ahead of me!  :(  At least, I can have all the espresso I want to keep me going...  :D

I have 3 pullips and a taeyang in storage. I am so sad that I don't have a doll here with me. I think I'll need to buy one of the knock offs to participate!! I just learned how to sew, so I'm aching to try it out. I didn't even think of transplanting the mini pullips onto Obitsus. I have like 5 minis that I bought off of The Valley of the Dolls for a couple of bucks each and their little bodies irritate me. They're in storage too :(. BUT, I did just buy a couple of the moxie teenz dolls - have you seen them? They're kind of fun. They're 16 bucks on Amazon and have wigs, articulation, and "real" eyes. I am am going to do my first customization on them.

Can someone shoot me the links for the knock offs? I'm failing with my ebay search.

I don't see why not.  What does everyone else think?  Would you be cool with crafting for a doll that's not exactly the same as your's as long as you had it's dimensions?  I'll see if I can gather some online tutorials for clothes/hats/etc and post them to the first page.  That should be helpful. :)

Also, I was looking at the ads today and for those of you in the US, the Littlest Pet Shop Petite Blythes are on sale for $10 at Target this week. :)

Hmm, I guess if you had the dimensions and patterns it might be ok.  I'd personally rather craft for a doll that I have so that I can make sure that it fits properly...plus I'm more accustomed to sewing for my Blythes.  :)

You're on a doll buying frenzy!  ;)

In my search I found this:
 
Quote
  "At 24 cm can they wear blythe clothes...."
I just measured my blythe quickly. Their measurement of neck/chest/waist/hip is nearly the same, Hujoo's shoulder is even smaller than blythe's
That's pretty awesome! 

Also, I started adding links to the first page.  If anyone has any suggestions, post them here or send me a PM.

I'm getting more and more excited about this swap as the days past!  I hope everyone else is too!

I think the hujoo would be just fine! They're pretty cute, too. I may invest once I get my Blythe(ish) doll. I've been searching for wigs all evening, but I think I may need to get her to decide what wig is going to work. I just sent in my questionaire. Hooray.

Sorry for clogging up with so many posts - I'm just really excited about this swap!

So I thought the hujoos were cute, but seeing them put on an Obitsu body makes them really freakin' cute. I think I will definitely be ordering a couple of obitsu bodies to do some Frankenstein action!

well, technically, I only bought a doll and a head (after a very long dolly spending hiatus).  i spent the money i was going to spend on the body on the hujoo, because i need to be sure what color body to order.  so... gotta wait.

plus, you guys are terrible influences.

Gatorwrangler: Welcome to the swap!  I'll get your feedback started tomorrow night when I get home from work.  All of your girls are gorgeous, but I especially love Hollis!  Is she a Baby's Breath?

Hollis is a My Best Friend. She was my first Blythe.

FYI, I've heard that some of the bodies on the knockoffs have a weird smell which is why I opted to get the Basaak/Blybe bank and move Blue onto an Obitsu body.  You can also find people that sell the Blythe bodies for about $10.

I haven't started anything yet, but I have all sorts of ideas already! I'm in three other swaps right now.  I'm hoping to have one sent by the end of the week and the other two mostly finished by the time I partner everyone up here.

I think there needs to be an ongoing doll swap every month!

On another note, I just bought an Obitsu body for my "Blythe". Tonight I started sewing a dress for my Moxie Teenz girl, which is a bit bigger than Blythe, but at least I am getting some practice. Unfortunately I did something funky to the machine and the thread keeps breaking every time I sew, so I have to wait for my mom to fix it when she gets home from work in the morning. I found some adorable material at Craft Warehouse for super cheap.

here is Blossom in the outfit I made her since the one she came in was less than attractive....

I've reached a milestone in my little crafting world. I completed my first sewn project. Sure, it was pretty easy, but it took me a while and I'm quite proud of it, even if the seams are wonky (first time I've ever gotten to use the word "wonky").

This is my Moxie Teenz girl modeling her new dress. Next time I will definitely do straps as the dress slips down a lot.
I also cut the top part too short, so I had to make the back a corset, and I only had orange ribbon laying around.




Forgive the poor shape my girl is in. I removed all of her makeup and attempted to start doing a mini face up, but it's definitely not going like I planned.

your moxie teen is so cute, which of course, prompted me to look them right up and stare at pictures.

I looked up the moxie teen body - they're quite adorable, with lots of articulation, but it appears they are quite a bit bigger than pullips or obitsu.  requiumart has a comparison shot: http://www.flickr.com/photos/requiemart/4769362680/

I think Dal is Pullip's boyfriend's sister.  Her body might be smaller and less developed, and her face always looks disapproving

Oh yes, Moxie Teenz are much much larger than my Pullips. Not only in height but in girth.  I'm just getting some sewing practice in.

I love my MT dolls. They're cheap and instant gratification unlike bjds but they are just plastic cheap dolls on the end so I wouldn't go crazy buying them all up.

what i did was trace around her body, make a "pattern shape" by rounding out the lumpy bits, etc.  I added a 1/4" for ease and another 1/4" for seam allowance.  this is the front.  for the back, fold in half, and extend the back, cuz you need room for closure.  cut two instead of 1.  sew shoulders, hem neck and arms, sew side seams, add skirt!

According to pullip.net, Pullip is approx. 31cm. http://pullip.net/pullip/profile.php  Hope that helps!

I also just discoverd that Pullip is going to have a little brother, Isul.  He'll be released in February. http://pullipstyle.com/pullipstyle/product_info.php?products_id=738

This is the hujoo - very cute.  the wig and eyes were for my mini bjd, but I didn't like either of them on her.  They fit the hujoo nicely.  the hujoo has great big legs and big hips/butt, so dont make blythe pants for this one.  The dress fits tho.  this dress pattern is from puchi collective.

Hey all, this is the first swap i've signed up to but I have been making things for my Blythe since returning from Tokyo in August.

This is my Blythe doll Cherry.. she was originally a 'Lounging Lovely'. I bought her from a friend and she isn't in great shape.. I'm going to get all sorts of customisation done to her in the new year!



I made the dress on the picture and the little hat! This was her halloween outfit.. I am trying to make/buy more lolita style thing for her though as that's the style i'm going for with her! The leggings and shoes where borrowed off a friend for this pic and totally not my style!

I am considering buying a Byul doll I have seen online, does anyone here have one? are they easy to make for? How big are their bodies? Sorry so many questions.. this is the one I want...



What do you guys think?

Excited for my first swap!! xx

are they skinny leg?  because I can't get my obitsu's skinny leg jeans over her feet!  I'll have to make a pair of boot cut blythe pants and see if they fit.

you have to make the waist bigger if you make it out of none stretch. I tried it with some suede like material. and the waist was too small with no stretch

I'm adding you to the swap now, bambii8899.  And then, I'm going to work on preliminary partners...so that I can get everything sent out quickly tomorrow night!  However, I may not get home by 8:30 like I originally thought...we have a new promotion to set tomorrow night that I forgot about. I looked it over today and it's not that big of a promo, so I'm still hoping to be out at our regular time.  Sorry for rambling about work...  :D

Why not join in? That way when she arives you will have stuff ready.

For those of you who are noticing that Ive had my hand in both Sinellia and Bambii getting Pullips/Obitsu's, I am the master of nagging and constantly showing off how cute Pullip stuff is  ;D (so please dont partner me with either of them! I send them stuff and get stuff from them anyway  :D  ;) )

Still havent gotten around to making Madison's bed, or buying her dolls house, but, I figured I should get some swap stuff done first  :D  :P

I agree with bubblegum_phoenix...you should join, stacysews!  Otherwise, I'm pretty sure there will be another swap in the spring. :)

And I'll make note to not partner you up with either of them, bubblegum_phoenix.  I would bring my Blythes over to onegroovyday's house frequently and she finally broke down and got one! I even coordinated the sale!  ;)

They are addictive wee buggers, Im really looking forward to Madison getting here, my poor family are sick of hearing me talk about her lol  :D but thats ok  ;) Ill turn them into doll lovers, just you wait.

stacysews if you are worried about scale or what ever, they are all roughly Barbie size, and rather than making clothes make wee food stuffs or blankets or what have you. Even cute wee slippers should fit all the sizes. There are heaps of Valentine ideas out there, so why not give it a crack?

I think the only thing holding me back is sewing in miniature!  I do have the Simplicity patter and played with it the other day, but am really disappointed at the 'finishing' of the clothes.  Are all patterns for these dolls left unfinished?

I saw that, and no, they are not all left unfinished.  Personally, I hate that and try to finish all the hems.  It's fairly easy to change - just hem the pant leg before sewing the side seam, etc.

Yay I'm so excited for this swap! Been lurking around a few Blythe forums and now I think I want to make a house too! Argh! Made my cherry a new dress last night as she was stuck in her Halloween costume!
I have the simplicity patterns coming to me in the post, are they difficult to follow? I usually HATE patterns!

From the looks of it, a lot of the clothes in the Simplicity pattern doesn't include hems - the edges are just left raw.  I tried the socks and added a hem before I sewed, but I didn't realize that when I went to try the hoodie so I just tried it 'as is' because I thought it might make it too short if I tried hemming them. 

I'm glad to hear not all patterns are like that - I was really disappointed in this one.... especially coming from a pattern company!

I think Simplicity is depending on the fact you'll be using a jersey that won't ravel so they left it unfinished.... I think in the future I'll either do a rolled hem or just make an allowance for a hem when I cut.  It looks fine because of the fabric I used (kind of punky), but it's just not how I like to sew.  I'm looking forward to the Dolly Coordinate book - they look lots more time consuming, but definitely fun!  I guess it's a good review of the pattern before anyone sews it up, though!

The Dolly Coordinate Books are fun!  Makes you want to buy the other types of dolls though.  LOL.

I guess unfinished seams are ok since most people don't wash their dollies' clothes.

Luckily for me, my darling other half fixed it all up for me (hes been working on it for about 7 or 8 hours  :-[ and Ive been banned from downloading "too good to be true" stuff) so Im back!
In my time off though I did get some Pullip stuff done, still no sign of mine (Sinellia you suck so much lol  :P ) but I have brought a bookcase to use as her home and I finally got her bad made. Im just waiting for the balsa cement to cure and dry and then Ill start on the mattress  :D . Its not the tidiest looking thing in the world, but, once you wack sheets etc on top, no-one will know  ;)
I also want to say a great big Hi to my partner, and now Im off to work out what on earth her doll looks like  :P

Im on holiday  :D so all I have to do is craft  :D

Started item number two last night (as Bambii knows, I was txting her, asking for her opinion, then doing it my own way anyway  :P )

I located an old pillow Im going to cut apart today for Madisons mattress, and Ive got a sheet with a hole in it Ill cut up for... sheets  :D
I had to remove the bed from our bedroom last night (which is where Ive set up the Pullip house) as the glue while curing, kinda smells (its kinds smelled since I opened the tube)

You dont really realise how big somethig is until its in you hand! This bed is massive! Ive done it as a queen size, so with her arms out stretched, the finger tips should reach either side, something like 35x23cm  :D . Ill do a wee bit more on item two and then do more on the bed, after Ive spent a few hours on Craftster  ;D

My goals for today were to make a cute Blythe dress, put up a shower curtain and clear coat the cabinets.  but, i didn't meet that goal because i have been up to my elbow in oil based clear coat and have just finished.  needless to say, i am beat. i did get the shower curtain up though.  So, Blythe dress tomorrow!  it will give me a chance to play with the super cute fabrics and trims i bought yesterday.

Got home from work this afternoon and deceided to do some sewing for Blossom, and practice on my "little" sewing before I make CataMara what I have picked out for her........ made a pair of flare cords and a hoodie, just have to sit and do the hand sewing bits now.... Im pretty happy with the way it came out.... the pants are a bit big in the waist but the hoodie covers that.... I'll post pictures and see what you guys think when they are totally done..

ok...puut a big X on the hoodie. The style, size and look are wonderful, perfect, and I love it......BUT...... I tried it on before I sewed the hood on.... and it started to stain Blossoms hand.... TRASH THAT ONE!!!.... live and learn ...... I had used scraps of a sweatshirt I had used for another project, that had been washed at least 200 times, but it was pigment dyed and I guess it just doesnt work!!

Now Im itching to do one that wont stain.......I should just stay home today!  Who needs to go to work?  I HAVE DOLL CLOTHES TO MAKE!!

I think all of the girls in your class would understand if you didn't show up today...just make some clothes for their dollies!  :D

I won't be crafting for this swap this weekend.  I unexpectedly have today and tomorrow off, so I'm hitching a ride with my sister to Orlando to visit my best friend in a few hours.  The best thing about it is that I don't have to drive, so I get to finish up some projects for two other swaps...which means I'll be crafting for KatyKamikaze in no time!  :)

I got my Blybe today! Fast shipping for Thailand. I wasn't expecting her until later in the month. I'm actually rather pleased with her. Her face is pointing down a bit, but I'm not sure if that's just par for the course with Blythes. Her hair is thicker than I thought it'd be, and her body is fine. It doesn't stink or anything. I think I can keep her on her body and actually order one of those banks to transfer onto the Obitsu body.

are you going to post pics of her?

Im going to start posting a serious amount of pics of Madi later on today, so keep your eyes peeled  ;) I want to show off the decorations I made for her Christmas tree, and her clothes AND her bed... so Id better get that finished  :D
Bambii was nice enough to drop off some velcro yesterday (Im trying to go a whole year without buying craft supplies, its hard  :-\ ) so I was able to finish her hoody and tshirt. Mum gave me a spool of thread so Ill whip up some jeans when Im dealing with the bedding and then, Ill show Madison off  ;D

lvl0rg4n, good to know that your dolly doesn't smell.  :)  It was something I read online...maybe there are different people making them??   We got a bank one and are happy.  :)  I just got a regular Blythe body for Blue so she'll be just like her sisters.  :)

I spent all evening disassembling my Blythe (as far as I'm concerned, she isn't a knock off anymore!) and sanding her face, removing her make up, and carving her mouth. So. Much. Work. I want her to have an open mouth with teeth. After 2.5 hours I was able to get through her plastic. Now I'm trying to figure out how to smooth her lips since I got through.

I tried to put her on her obitsu body, but my neckpieces are too small. I have to search to see how people get it to stay on.

Tape or rubberbands. You can get a special plastic tape that plumbers use to wrap around tap fittings, that seems to work pretty well
Really looking forward to seeing her

Thanks, bubblegum_phoenix. I'll see what I can rig up tomorrow.

Here's some pictures of my girl tonight. I haven't decided on a name yet. I think she'll need her new hair and new make up before I can name her.

Here's her before:

Shiney shine shine. Her make up was bright blue with bright pink lips. Poor girl needed some time at the spa. Don't mind her dress either. She's going to get something nice to wear soon.

Here she is now:


I sanded her face down which removed her tacky makeup. I also opened her mouth up, tried to give her little indentions in her top lip, craved the little dip above her lip, and gave her some nose holes. She definitely needs some more sanding and smoothing, and I think I'm going to try and give her some dimples. I also am going to do teeth.

Haha, I'm definitely not brave, but she's cheaper to replace, so I kind of just went for it. It was a little nervewracking, especially as I got more and more into it. I was thinking, heck I just spent 2 hours carving this beast, what if I mess up? But a little sand paper goes a long way.

Its the shiney-ness I have an isue with on Blythes, I know a lot of people prefer them shiney, but it just tooks so alien like. Then again, having a massive head on a teeny body Pullips, Blythes and Hujoos arent exactly what youd call normal anyway  :D
I might have to buy one of the Blythe knock offs to pay with, Im going to get Madi a newbody at some stage anyway so could put the knock off on her body  ;) has anyone got anyway to make her less creaky? Ive read its pretty standard for the Pullip body, but it doesnt make it any less annoying  :D

To me, the shiny makes them look like they just finished running a marathon, or just dug a ditch or some such.  Which doesn't seem very Blythe like

I finished the face up on my doll! I don't have a sealer so who knows how long it will be good for, but I got a ton of practice and I think she looks great. I have to finish cooking her teeth and then I'll do some pictures.

Has anyone done a reroot? How hard was it?

Here she is:



Her lips didn't come out so great. I've got to read up a bit more on them. I think I'll go ahead and paint a little flippy eye liner on her too.

I also put her on her Obitsu body. I am not happy with the neck length, and her head is too heavy for her body, but I looove the jointing.

Blossom wanted to stop by and show you all her new outfit.....





I made the hoodie, which I totally had to re-size since it was from a pattern for a laTi doll, this one doesn't fit the best, but I did adjust the pattern pieces as I went and the next one should be a breeze...... The skirt was simple(no pattern needed), and I also made a pair of flare pants out of the same cord material.........the tights were not as hard as I had thoughtthey would be, thanks to freezer paper, the crotch came out a bit low, but I made the needed adjustments and the next pair should come out just fine.

hope everyone is having a great weekend

I used a piece 6.5x4cm and folded it  :) its a good size that you can still write on it, and still read it, plus it looks about the right size. Dont forget though, when you buy people sized cards you get mini ones and MASSIVE ones  :D

I got an awesome delivery today. Id ordered Madi two pair of shoes and what I thought was a dress from Mimiwoo on ebay, turns out the dress is a corset and skirt! Awesome!  ;D
Now, is the Pullip body bigger at the hips than most obitsu's or whats the deal? Maybe Madi should stop eating all those donuts Sinellia sent  :D

Rosamund is cute. What all did you change? Sorry if youve mentioned it before- brain like a sieve  :D

The Spring theme, while cute, would work lol  :D Bambii and I are Kiwis, so its Summer for us now, heading into Autumn.
A general swap could be fun, though, I wouldnt mind doing a dollshouse one, but I know alot of people dont have a dolls house  :)

Thanks!  :D All of her eye chips are changed, sand-matting/sealing, minor face carving, new make-up/eyelashes...Her eye make up doesn't show very well, but it's gradient; starts out pale pink by her eyelashes and goes to a deep coral in the crease.

Rosamund is lovely!!  I would love a green-haired beauty one of these days. :)

Hehe, dollhouses are great!  I gave up on ours years ago because it was total chaos since I was sharing it with my daughter.  Anyhow our girls still live in their messy Ikea bookshelf.  It was really lovely in it's heyday. :)

Neat!  Ghilie, where did you purchase her body from?  I am moving Blue from her Obitsu body because her torso keeps falling apart, but your body doesn't look like she'd have that problem.

I washed Georgiana's hair this morning. I decided to trim up her bangs and............I ACCIDENTALLY CUT HER EYELASHES! I can't believe I did that. I have another girl waiting for a make over. I'm going to practice putting on eyelashes on her. Then I can fix my poor Georgiana.  :'(

Finally got some clothes for my Isabella.  Found some cheap Liv doll clothes and stole a barbie doll's outfit (and now I have a naked barbie).

Here she is!


This was a Liv doll outfit I found at target on clearance. 


This outfit was taken from a back to basics barbie.  Had to pin it, and wound up cutting the jeans shorter.

When I bought Hazel, her eyelashes had a nick in them.  I ended up just trimming them both shorter (since she wears glasses a lot anyway) and it worked out okay.

Then a few months later, I was changing Kokua's eyechips and got hot glue stuck in her lashes, so I pulled them out and put in new fake lashes I bought at Target (trimmed them down to fit her) and I love her lashes now.  I may change some of my other girls lashes too. :)

Now for a crafting update:  I have one item finished and a couple more planned. I am send off two of my larger swaps tomorrow and then I can focus solely on this swap.

I've been in front of the sewing machine all night. My back is going to hurt in the morning. The worst part is sewing on the little snaps. I stab myself at least 2 times on each snap.

I use my machine for the bigger seams. No way can I machine sew necklines. I always stab myself because I'm try to hold onto a tiny snap.

Yea Bambii's obitsu arrived here today so I think Ill have to get Madison one. Much more flexible and it appears the clothes fit both dolls equally well. The medium soft bust is quite a nice one, poor bambiis yet to see it as Im holding it hostage until Friday, mwhahahaha  :D

I love that kitchen!  I've never seen it before, usually I see Barbie or Rement kitchens.  I'm going to have to search out other options as I know I'm not going to make everything for my future dollhouse. It'll be mostly purchased!  I have some Barbie things already, but I want to paint them so they aren't all pink and purple.

Ok, so Ive decided instead of spending billions on that kitchen I might try and make my own from balsa wood  :D
So just got to beg and borrow friends (oi bambii!! lol) for teeny hinges to make cupboards open and close, hrm, its not really craft supplies if its for a specific project  ;D might go buy some teeny hinges  :D
So that just leaves trying to work out how to make it look like a sink, stove/oven and fridge. Everything else should be easy.

Been picking on skookum, I keep giving her hints. Im crafting for her male Hujoo... one item has NZ rugby player- Dan Carter's face on it  :D another is balsa (oh how I love thee  :D ) and theres also my first hand felted project in there! Just got two wee bits left and I should be ready to go. I was finished with the requirements a while ago... I tend to do one or two items more  ;) to make up for having to send so far (and cos Im aparantly an overachiever  ::) )

I would suggest using a slightly harder (more durable) wood than balsa for furniture.  You can get sheets of different thin woods at dollhouse supply places.  I know most of what we did was "basswood".  It has a fine grain, sands smooth, and takes stain and finishes pretty well, while still being soft enough that you can cut it with an exacto knife.  Balsa is very weak, and any exposure to a small child will often leave it with hundreds of little fingernail marks.  (We don't want to discuss something falling on your balsa wood porch swing  :'( )

PS. watch for little plastic containers that prepared foods come in (like jelly or syrup).  Some of those make really great looking sinks.  It might take some time to find one that "looks right" and is the right size, however.

I should be sweet with the balsa. Ill keep the harder stuff in mind though.
Ive used the thickest balsa I can find for the bed and its held up well so far and Im using about a medium sized thickness for the kitchen. No lil fingers here to worry about  :D just cats who have been quickly learning that if they go anywhere near that dolls house they get growled at and put outside (I dont growl at them often, so when I do... lmao)

Glues dried of the last item, so just a bit of finishing up and then fighting with teeny scraps of material and maybe a paint touch up before I gloss and then I should be sweet.

lol, what makes it funnier is the new body Im getting for Madi has bigger boobs than she currently has.

Yea I checked all of Madi's stuff on Bambii's body before I ordered the new one. Only change is in height, the obitsu soft bust is about 1cm or so longer in the legs. Found a pair of jeans Id started for Farley ages ago and tried them on Madi, yea, obitsus are all taller  :D

You guys with the dolls with boobs make me crack up.  Made me remember this person who sold padded bras for those Blythes who were less endowed.
http://www.wonderlandblog.com/wonderland/2006/09/padded_bras_for.html

Still doing a bit of sewing.  I need to finish this up this weekend.  Hopefully tonight after my daughter is asleep.  :)  I still need to work on my card.  Should be fun making a teeny one.

The shop that has a heap of Barbie stuff here has the Fridge only, for $40NZD, so, heh, that entire set would be a ton cheaper  ::) but, of course, the ebay auction has closed (and yes, I am half way through making my own from balsa, shhhh)

Thank you Mindy!  I am back home and to my computer.   I'll get a gallery set up in a little bit. 

I'm hanging in there, mostly worried about my mom.  My grandfather passed away yesterday and she was his only child.  I'll be in and out all week, helping my mom when I can, but I'll be checking in with Craftster daily.  The Craftster commmunity is my second family.  I <3 you guys!  :)
 
I hope everything is okay for imafundork.

Thank you!  :-*

My Blythe arrived yesterday, so I'll be stalking the gallery, getting ideas.  I'm going to try a few things from my book that arrived, too so I'll be prepared for a round two when it happens!

imafundork - I'm sorry to hear about your grandfather.  I'm an only too (my dad's 5th anniversary of his death is today) and understand where she's coming from.  You two hang in there.

Firstly, I can't wait to see what y'all have made for this swap! I'm more excited for this then the swaps I'm in LOL.

Second...could I ask opinions about Blythe and..what's it called...Blybe?  I am interested in the face customization..but can't imagine doing that for the first time on a doll that costs...as much as they do. Plus it seems most people call them Blythe....is there a "stigma" with Blybe? Like with Tokidoki stuff, the knock offs are steeling from the Itallian guy who draws them.  but the Blybe folks have the Blythe molds don't they?

I keep looking for more info on the web...but it seems to be hard for me to find...is that cause I'm in Canada?

Sorry if this is not the place to ask such things ;D

If you're interested in customizing but want to practice, get a blybe.  There is a stigma attached to it - it's a knockoff after all, not a cheaper version green-lighted by the bylthe company.  but you won't fear it like you might fear a $100 blythe.

oh yes, blythe is still made.  see, blybe would be illegal in the US because of copyright.  but blybe is manufactured in china, where they just dont recognize copyrights from other countries.  then its sold on ebay, and ebay just doesnt care to protect copyright either.

Sinellia and suereal...I have found a ton of information on Blythe from Blythe Kingdom (http://www.blythekingdom.forumotion.com).  You need a referral to join the forum and anyone in this swap can use me as a reference.  I have the same username there as well.  Two of my five Blythes were bought secondhand in their buy and sell forum.  I've also bought a ton of secondhand clothing and shoes there,  learned about new "models", the difference in face molds and about customization.


I went to onegroovyday's house tonight....because I have a hard time focusing on crafting at home (I get distracted by craftster!) and started three things for KatyKamikaze.  I should have them finished, along with a fourth on Sunday.  I hate cutting it so close to the deadline, but I'll be sending on Monday for sure. :)

I love my Blybe! I was able to hack her apart without worrying. I'm not a point in my life where I can buy $100 dolls either, so the Blybes are a great option.

So. I was working hard on my items tonight, on a ROLL.... and then I turned on the oven to cook some polymer clay goodies. After about 10 minutes, I realized I forgot to get a pan out to cook my items on, so I opened the drawer under the oven. Now I've only been in this house for a month and I've never had a gas oven, so I didn't realize the drawer under the oven heated up with the oven. Oh but it does. All of my fingers on my left hand are severely burned, lol. I've been lucky not to get any injuries from my crafts before, but I think all the near misses have manifested into this owwie. Burns suck!

Oh yeah - that's the broiler.  it gets really hot, too.  i grew up with a gas stove but when i moved out, i had an electric one.  i couldn't understand what the hell that drawer was for if it didn't get hot.  lol

Oooh the broiler. I guess that makes sense! I will never, ever, ever forget now. I woke up this morning and my fingers don't hurt so much, but now they're just all weird and blistered up. I may be able to get back on my crafting game tonight, lol.

Ouch lvl0rg4n!  I hope your hands heal quickly!


Organizer's note: Don't forget that Monday is the send out day!  If you think you may be sending late, please notify me and your partner.  Thanks!
However, we've already had eight senders and three packages have been received!  I can't wait to see the gallery explode next week! :D

Well if I were your partner I wouldn't mind.  You are an awesome seamstress and craftster!!  Lana and I really love the clothes you made for our poppet...not to mention the awesomeness of the poppet itself.  :)

I just had the biggest postal bill in the world  :D but, I have sent out 16 packages today, including Skookums
I think the ladies at the post office hate me though  :D I made them stay late as I had to fill out customs forms for each package  :D  ::)

So I sent this swap out and another at the same time.  The other one got to my partner a few days ago.  This one doesn't even show that it's left the town I'm in!  /worry

zigg13pra - I thought it was weird I hadn't received yet. Hopefully nothing happened to it.

But the other box mailed at the same time showed about 5 locations it stopped at!   Not like I haven't seen it done that before anyways.  Oh silly usps.

Edit:  OHOHOH It's updated so it's close to you!
