Visit my other Blog, please

I have been busy blogging away reviews of the two BJD I have recently gotten. In my new blog
Through the Eyes of Dolls
I also have plenty of photos there. All clothing you see in their pictures are hand made by me. I am hoping to make more clothing for them, and possible get another size doll to make more clothing in many different sizes.

Sorry for short blog, but right now I am being dragged outside by my daughter! So off to pose dolls and get more pictures!

I hope everyone has a great day and please follow my new blog if you are interested in it!

Back in the Swing of Blogging

To help encorage my blogging even further (since I really need to get myself on a schedule!) I have created as second blog. This blog is totally for my addiction to BJD (Ball Jointed Dolls.) Recently I have been doing more with the dolls.

For Mother's Day I received a Hujoo Berry and hence forth my addiction has started again. Back in 2008 (my first Mother's Day) I received a Volks Dollfie Plus. I have always wanted a BJD and that was what started my love of them. This year I decided that it was something I really did want to invest some time into. These dolls are actually something I selfishly want for me to have fun with.

I also bought a Hujoo Wings this year, I figured it would be more fun to have a couple to take pictures of and make clothing for. So far I was right. My Volks is precious to me, since she was designed to look like my daughter, so she usually gets outfits, but she stays on my shelf over looking my crafting.

My Hujoos are more for fun and posing and clothing. I also have used them to design a story line. I have been craving to sit down and write but I didn't have an actual idea until recently. So my little Hujoos have helped me there. Now I have to get off my butt and start writing!

As for my crafting, lets see...
I have been crocheting Amigurumi (which appeared two posts ago.)
I have been crocheting Clothing for my BJD
I have been sewing Clothing for my BJD
I have been drawing (I haven't scanned yet)
I have been writing tid bits (One is posted on Fanfiction.net)
I have been being "crafty" with doing peoples hair (I never got pics)
I have been playing with digital arts (Eventually I will post, for now they aren't great, just some anima/manga scans I have made backgrounds out of)

As for my Paganism...
I have been clearing and working on our house
I have been growing some plants and caring for our yard
I have been working more with my stones (I have an awesome Zen Garden for them now)
I have been reading more on different aspects
I have been meditating more


So there is a snapshot of my last few months away from my dear blog! So enough talk, here are some pictures of some of the things I have been up too...

Volks Dollfie Plus, Gardenia, in her hand crocheted "Criss Cross" Bikini {Based off an item in an online game}

Hujoo Wings, William, in pants that were once blackout curtains, and a hand crocheted vest.

Hujoo Berry, Iliana, in a hand crocheted Rainbow skirt and shirt. Also a hand crocheted choker with a tiny flower charm.

My Zen garden! Also Ilia is wearing a silk skirt with crocheted belt and crocheted pink tube top. William is wearing his first pair of pants, out of a shimmery brown material.

Trying out my blogger app...

As a trial post I'll also mention that starting last Sunday my Mother, my Cousin, my Best Friend, and I have started dieting together. So I'm hoping to be able to post some yummy and healthy recipes. Plus it should help me to remember to blog daily if I keep a side note at the end of each post about how well I'm doing, sound like a hood idea?

Well since Sunday I personally have done well. I've eaten my points for the day each day. So far I've had one extra point. It's so much easier to diet with the buddy system!

Been away for far to long! Crocheting update with pictures!

I wonder... Do I have any readers left?

Ah, Well it's been a while. I guess I let life get a hold of me and hold me away from my blog for way to long! Though I have remembered to check on almost everything else. Now that we have our own Internet I can start blogging again! I also have my own laptop now so I have reliable computer and Internet! YAY!

I did get my craft room all done and set up. I have a few pictures to post of it, but I sadly have them on my other computer. So for now I will just have to explain. My craft area half of our spare room (other half is Alex's big computer and book shelf.) We painted our walls a bright light green and I have my own table now. It's a nice place for me to work and relax. I have an awesome corner shelf hung on the wall, my table is right under the window (nice light,) I have two of the tall white plastic drawers and one smaller one under my desk. They are all filled up with crafting fun stuff! I also purchased ten canvas-like totes, which I play to build shelves for so I can fill them with more of the craft stuff slowly taking over the floor!

I have been keeping busy crocheting many things in the past few months since we moved and got settled in. I created a Bride and Groom for a friend of mine who is getting married. They are about 2.5 to 3 inches tall. I also have crocheted two chibi (tiny form) Sunako (A manga/anime character from The Wallflower aka Perfect Girl Evolution) dolls, one was about 4 inches tall, the other was a cell phone charm. I also crocheted an Axel (from Kingdom Hearts) cell charm. The cell charms are around one inch tall each. I did start a starghan (star shaped afghan) to see if I can do it. So far it's looking pretty good, it's about lap size as of now. I have been working on and off again on a Corset type shirt for my mother. It's looking pretty good (even though I am not use to making clothing!)
The Bride and Groom, they sit inside a heart I crocheted

Both Sunako

Cell Phone Axel
I am still taking orders on items to create, as always I am creating them without patterns. I have recently gotten into using threads to crochet (that's how the cell charms are created!)

I will post again soon (in probably a half hour or so) on my newest crafting addiction! I hope to get back into daily (or bi-daily) posts! Please stay with me while I get back into the swing of blogging regularly!
