Mickey Hat

Gatsby's Mickey Hat 

I should add a band all the way around to make it fit better.  Maybe that can be done tonight....

Nymph and Middies

Wow, I need to do a follow up post on several things from earlier in the year.  Like a comparison post on my Middies.  This is something I still want to do with Milk and Honey and one of the others.

Something else I mention was changing my Simply Guava Nymph's scalp to Cappuccino Chat scalp.  Well, I did it! It is amazing to see how different a doll can look with new hairs.  Here she is:

Gatsby is packing!

I mentioned in a previous post about taking Gatsby to Disney World.  This week we both have been packing! I'm packed up (mostly) and she started last night.

I purchased Snowflake Sonata stock outfit just for the trip! Oh the crown is adorable.  I can't wait to get a photo of her standing in front of Cinderella's Castle wearing it!!
    -Side note, the family invested in "Park Hopper" passes so we can come and go as we please. Hopefully, I will get some pics without tons of people in it.

The Snow White dress was a success.  I made some mistakes but overall it worked out.

Sorry for the blurry photo.  I think something is wrong with my older camera lens.
I didn't catch it until I already uploaded photos.

Simply Twins!

I like to Christmas shop long before December.  I typically have everything made/purchased before November.

My daughter, who I call R on my blogs, wants a Middie Blythe.  Gah, I couldn't do it.  I just couldn't spend the money (they went up in price since last week), especially when I found the Simply Vanilla and Simply Chocolate for so cheap when purchased together and free shipping.

Hopefully this year will be the same as the last 2 years with Santa.  R wanted Santa to decide her Christmas present.  I think she will love getting one of these dolls.  I have given her a doll nearly every Christmas.

This will be R's first real Blythe.  I have customized 3 clones for her.  This one will stay in the box until Christmas morning.  I know the first thing that will change is orange eye chips.  R likes purple!

Who is going to Disney World?

 Gatsby with her toy giraffe that I got her from the zoo.
I dislike posting without pics!

My family and I are going to Disney World! I just can't go without a Blythe.  Now the question is who should go and what clothing should she have?

Gatsby has been my travel girl recently. I like that her hair is so easy to fix.  Long hair is a nightmare.


Should I take one of my Middie girls?  The are a bit smaller.  Better fit for my carry on.

I want to make whoever goes a princess dress.  Snow White stuck in my head, no sure why.... I hope to make it this weekend. I have the yellow material for the skirt and some of the details I plan to used wool felt (like the red details in Snow White's sleeves).

I already made a Micky Ears hat a couple weeks ago.  Thanks to Jam Fancy, she provided the pattern online for free.  Very sweet. Oops, no photo yet.  I didn't upload it to Flickr.

I know for sure that I will pack Nicky Lad boots and Takara black and purple boots.  It seems with boots there is risk of them falling off.

More on this soon.  I will get some photos of the dress and hat.
