New Dolls and Breyerfest News!

     Today is Memorial Day so I didn't have to go to school. Long weekends are tough for me at any time because usually after them I just don't want to go back to work, but this one is especially rough because it felt like Summer today. I am sure I will be fine, though some of our kids have been extra hard to deal with the past week or so. We have 14 days left and we can't just stop now. So, at least for a few more weeks, the kids will have to deal with doing work, even if they don't want to. 
     It rained all day today so even if I had had any cookout plans, which I did not, it would have been a terrible day for it. But my only plan was to work out, which I did after I cleaned my gym and put down some more floor mat tyles, and to do some work in the studio. Which I also managed. The doll I was working on fought me the whole way. She is coming together a bit more now, but I don't think she's done yet. Besides the fact that she still doesn't have a head. But there is always tomorrow. 
     Last week I managed to finish a couple of dolls that didn't really fight me at all. This cherry blossom doll is done on the Lena body. I think I have a handful of these dolls left but soon I will run out and that will be that. This lady is available, $240 plus shipping. 
     This lady came together pretty easily as well. Though she did go through a phase where I wasn't sure I was going to like her at all. But she did come out well and her face came out especially nicely, I think. She is also available, $240 plus shipping. If you are interested in either doll, or want to see more photos of them, you can email me at
    You know what else happened today while I was fighting with the doll I was working on? A bag of stuff fell off the shelf. Twice. It was leftover dog sets and a few other things from my Black Friday live sale. And then I had this great idea... a prize wheel! So obviously I had to buy one (it's ordered) so I can have prizes in Kentucky. I have a bunch of ideas of what might end up on the prize wheel, but I am still working out a lot of the details. I just know that I will have a prize wheel in Kentucky. And I will likely have my dolls and things in different places on different days. I am still figuring it all out. 
     I did not have the most productive long weekend, but I did manage to get a lot more reading done than I usually do. Yesterday I finished a book (Pestilence, by Laura Thalassa) and I started War, which is the second in the series. I am already over 100 pages in. And that is on a day when I was doing a lot of doll work. I am looking forward to school being out so I can knock out a 500+ page book in a few days and still manage to get other things done. Soon enough...

Congratulations! Reading AND working out AND dolls! I'm impressed,... I usually only manage two out of those three. I know what you mean about a piece fighting you. Keep at her, slow and steady just might win the battle.
