Yep, a few more Cakes have joined the family :) First was Lilo, my 2nd Angel Cake (on the right). She and Lola are twins - they have twin dresses.
Then a couple of days ago Sapphire (Blueberry Muffin), Ruby (Strawberry Shortcake) and Rose Quartz (Raspberry Tart) arrived. They are still naked :D Must make them some clothes! I now have 5 Blythes, 5 Vintage SSCs and 1 Dal :) There are a few Blythes which have been announced in the past few days/weeks which I'd like - and 4 or 5 Dals too. But my dolly family is pretty much complete. He he - famous last words!
And finally - Cakes in a Cake Stand! :D Popped them in here as I was using the box they were on for photos of Hana, and then noticed what I'd done, so had to take a photo :)

Meet Lola

My first Strawberry Shortcake doll for about 20 years :D She even smells just how I remembered. She is an Angel Cake, and she named her skunk Rose. I named her Lola as she reminds me of Lola from Charlie and Lola - one of my favourite childrens book and TV series.
Hana has decided that Lola is her little sister
Hana's new BA dress arrived today - she loves it!

On Thursday Kiki and I went on our first advernture together on the Hills. We got rather lost and wlked for about 6 or 7 miles, but got some lovely photos.

Another dress what I made.

Amy Butler fabric. Changed the pattern a little to make it longer.

Blythe Blythe Beautiful Blythe.....

Our ButtonArcade dress came today - it was a commission, so I got exactly what I wanted :D We love it! Deer, owls and apples - what's not to love!? And Hana adores the ickle rubber chicken from Kyle :)
I made this beret with a pattern from Mel linked me to - but knitting isn't really my forte and even though it took me all day yesterday (which is why the lighting is so bad, as I didn't finish it til about 8pm), it came out more like something Bob Marley would have worn....
On Saturday we (that's me, Kiki, Hana and Satori) went to a meet in Birmingham - we saw lots of lovely ladies, and a lot of gorgeous dolls. I was bowled over by Fliss's PAM - Kiki was jealous :D There were a couple of other Punkys there - and everyone was right - Kiki does have exceptional hair. I somehow got very lucky there.
My DB and Angela's custom re-root DB - can't believe how different they look. I'm thinking of at some point in the future getting a 2nd DB to do a full custom on.
OK not a Blythe - an Ixtee Mui-Chan belonging to Jo. She is adorable!
CanCan Cat and PAM - Ruth and my dream dollies..... I need to win the lottery!

I made an empire-line dress. And it went ok :)

Made by me :D

Still under house arrest (i.e. ill), and had Alex home today too, so tried my hand at sewing for the girls again. My first attempt at a dress didn't exactly work out, and I had to unpick and restitch it twice!
But then I had a go at making a ribbon tied top - and it turned out pretty well! I made a little felt and button heart embellishment for the front too. Love how it matches Hana's glasses.

I think the trick is to keep practising. I'll get there eventually.

My dolly family <3

L-R: Hana, Mei, Sakura, Satori, Satsuki and Kiki. I love them all so much :) At the moment I'm feeling pretty content - I'd like a Drta Dal, and maybe a Melize or Lizbel, but for the time being, there's no overwhelming need.
Hana and Mei the Blondies.
Sakura and Satori the fantasy-haired girls.
Satsuki and Kiki the dark-haired lovelies.
And more Kiki spam :D She really is stunning - one of those girls who you just find yourself staring at. The more I look at her the more I love her. And doesn't she look amazing in the dress from the wonderful Abby :)

Best (suprise) mail day

Got back from my first day at college (although I don't have to go back now for a month :D ), to the most wonderful surprise package from my bestest Blythe friend, Abby. I met Abby on TIB right back when I'd just got my first Blythe, and we've been in contact almost everyday since. She knows how much my girls love rock-chick style, so she sent me these two amazing tops/dresses for my girls, as she no longer has a rock girl in her Blythe family.
She also sent us a cute little Kewpie, and stickers for the kids.
Thank you Abby! The girls and I send you lots of love and hugs xxx

(Another) new addition!

My Punkaholic People Blythe, Kiki :D I entered the lottery on Junie Moon, and pre-ordered through HLJ, and both fell through, but the wonderful Rebecca stepped in and sold me her spare one! (Thank you!!!)
She arrived on Tuesday, and there aren't many things which could drag me away from the new Dan Brown book (which I also got on Tuesday), but she certainly is one of them! I love her so much.
She and Satsuki are obviously sisters. Not identical, but there's enough of a resemblance.
Yesterday I spent the day customising her - nothing major, just boggled, gaze-corrected, 3 pairs of eye chips changed, and while her scalp was off I boil straightened her hair.
Her chips are now more similar to BWT (Satsuki)'s - I kept the stock green ones as they suit her, and changed the others to purple, turquoise and light grey.
Her fringe still needs a bit of attention (I'm rubbish at hair cutting!), but she's pretty much perfect :)

Satori Spam

Because she's beautiful. Because I love taking photos of her. Because I started ADAD (A Doll A Day) today (09/09/09), and am looking at the type of photos I take. Because I can :D

There's a new girl in our house.....

My little Satori is a Cinnamoroll Dal. Her name is Japanese for Enlightenment, and was inspired by John's bike turbo-trainer, which has the same name!

I cannot tell you how much I love this girl - and how guilty I feel towards my Blythes about that! But her fragility and little pouty face make you feel very protective towards her. Its also amazing how easy she is to photograph, and how expressive she is.

Did I say I love her ?!

Think she will be the first of a few Dals :)

Friendship Bracelets :)

So I had this idea ages ago (well a few months ago when I first started collecting/obsessing over Blythe) to make friendship bracelets for Blythes. Finally got the first 3 sets made this week.
They were uploaded to my Artfire store - SakuraBlythe and 2 sets (pink and blue) have sold already! Yay!
I'm going to try really hard not to spend the money I make from selling them (and the other things I've got planned to make ) until I have enough for a whole doll :) Wonder how long that will last!
Been really bad spending too much recently - I have my first Dal, Cinnamoroll in the post (funny as I really hated them til recently!), Punkaholic (that was a looonnnggg story! HLJ pre-order cancelled, didn't win one in the lottery, but my lovely friend Rebecca managed to get 2 and has sold one to me!!!! Yay! Not sure how long it'll be til she gets here though, as she hasn't been sent from Japan yet, and has to detour via Germany!), a Tiny Bazaar headband (had been stalking them for sooooo long!), oh and I have another new obsession - re-ment/megahouse gumball machines! They're so cute! I have a re-ment set on the way, and a megahouse complete set of Panda Candy Store sets :) Can't wait for the girls to play with them.
So tired now - all that bracelet making :D

Its been too long

Hana and Mei came with us on holiday and enjoyed visiting the beach (although Mei had a slight mishap when one of her eyechips fell out inside her head!). I think they enjoyed themselves like we did :)

Punkaholic People is released on Friday! Its been soooo long waiting. I've pre-ordered from HLJ and entered the Junie Moon lottery, so we'll see what happens.

In the mean time I have done the unbelievable - fallen for Dals. Its funny really, as until I recently I hated them, but Martha and Erica have both got Dal's recently, and they just crept up on me. The one I really want is Cinamoroll <3 So far I've been obsessed with her for 3 days. I won't be able to resist much longer. I even considered cancelling Punk to get her, shock horror.
