A few months ago, I picked up another hobby. I know what you're thinking...I barely have enough time to keep up with the hobbies I have now, with my family and the career thang, but I digress. I started collecting Blythe dolls. What started with one innocent doll turned into a ridiculous obsession, or addiction, if you will and I now have close to 10 of the blasted things in my craft room. It wasn't too long after I started collecting, that I started customizing them.
Pumpkin is a Simply Mango that I adopted. I can't remember who her original owner was. Anyways, her custom process was pretty simple just sandmatted, applied chalk pastels, and sealed her.
Mischa was originally a Frosty Frock bait girl that I adopted from Chasity. This is actually her 3rd look. She's pretty much my experimental blythe, anytime I want to try a new technique or look...she's the guniea pig. (Kinda reminds me of when I was a kid and one of my cousins, going through beauty school at the time, tried all kinds of cuts, colors, and perms on my hair) Anyways, I did some major carving on Mischa. I like the look like she has now...which is good because there's NO going back once you carve plastic.
So there you have it. That's what I've been up to the past few months. The career thang has been keeping me pretty busy the past few months, but that's finally calmed down for a few weeks at least. I'm taking classes again, so I can finally knock out my degrees. You know me...constantly on the go.
On a scrappy note, I wanted to share a quick "scrappy" toot. Apparently, GCD Studios spotlighted some of my layouts on their blog on January 21st. Thanks so much, Heidi! You can check it out HERE.
Finally, I was asked back to design for Scrap That Moment. Lynette will be having the grand opening of her brick & mortar store, located in IL, the next few weeks so stay tuned.
