New Blog Address

Hi everyone!
I just remembered I hadn't posted a link to my new blog yet, so here it is: My World.
Please go and check it out when you have time ;)

Friday, October 17, 2014

Okay, so I've been thinking for ages about this, and now I've finally decided.

I'm doing a new blog.

There's nothing wrong with this one, but I've kinda lost so much enthusiasm for all the photo stories and doll-related posts.

I still love my dolls, and they'll always be special to me, but as time rolls on I'm finding it harder to post.
I will still do stuff on here sometimes, but it's not my main blog anymore. 

Same goes for the dolls' blogs.

I haven't finished my new blog yet, but I'll post a link when I have. 
It probably won't be doll stuff, more like fashion and dance stuff. I'm sure the girls will feature on there sometimes, though :)

I hate to admit this, and leave this blog, but I'm growing up. I'm not growing out of dolls, by any means! I still love dressing them up and doing their hair, I just play with them in a different way.
I'm finding that other things (like dancing) are becoming more important in my life, and also I'm 13 now (I know, I haven't told you until now and that was over a month ago :/)

Sorry for leaving like this.

I really hope you come and join me over at my new blog, when it's finished!

Again, sorry to disappoint you. I will be back at some stage though, because I still have mounds of photos I need to put on here at some stage!

Yes, I'm still here!

Don't worry, everyone. I'm not leaving this blog anytime soon, even though I haven't been around much lately. I'm currently in the process of editing photos and stuff for more posts, (which takes forever when you've got behind.) so I should have more coming soon. However, I'm a lot more active on my Pinterest account, so make sure to check it out, and comment with your username if you have one as well so I can follow you!

Another quick post...

Hi everyone!
Just letting you know that I'll be away over the weekend, but should be posting when I get back.
I'm taking a mini doll with me, so will hopefully have a few photos of her. (She's one of my new mini dolls, and her name is Elizabeth :)
Anyway, so sorry I haven't been posting, but I'll definitely be getting back "into it" this week.

Very Quick Post...

Hi Girls!
Just a very quick note to say that I went to the doll show on Saturday, and I took Ruthie. I didn't take many photos, but I have some of when we were there and the stuff I got which I am hoping to get posted this week. I am working on a new hairstyle tutorial for the blog at the moment, so that is why they haven't been posted yet, but I will get that done as soon as I can!

Off I go...

Hi everyone!
I'll be going to a doll show in a couple of weeks, so I wanted to know:
What doll should I take?
Charlotte (My Dream baby),
or Melody?
Also, are there any doll-related questions you would like me to ask some people while I'm there? I'd be more than happy to, considering many of the stall-holders are more experienced in these things.
Please let me know in the comments, or by voting on the poll.
Thank you!

P.S. In case you were wondering, yes, I will try and take a few photos, if possible.

Ruthie's Strawberry Dress

After having the fabric sitting there for ages, this afternoon I finally got round to doing something with it, and here's how it turned out!
I used the Bubble Dress Tutorial from
This dress turned out pretty cute, but it was quite frustrating to make! I used the bodice pattern from Melody's Birthday dress (see picture), and the sleeves from a t-shirt pattern, because I wanted it to have long sleeves.
So obviously I didn't have too much trouble with the bodice, given that it was a very simple pattern and I'd made it before, so apart from a few unwanted tucks when setting the sleeves in, it was pretty much fine.
The skirt was definitely the worst bit!

1. I forgot to add 1/4'' to my bodice measurement for the skirt lining, hence why I had to put velcro all down the back, because it was too tight around her bottom (the pictures will explain more).
2. The gathers were really annoying! I hate gathering, especially when I have to make it really poofy so the threads are really tight, and then all they break when you try to pull them out, and you have to pick at them for ages to make it even before you sew, etc.

Now for the photos:

Birthday dress. Notice the similarities?

The sleeves were actually meant to be set straight in, but I think the gathers worked well, no?

The cutest, pouffiest skirt ever!

Dodgy back closure :(
The funny velcro arrangement I came up with to make it work.

And all the time I was taking photos, the cat was looking at me like this.
Aka: What are you doing near my playground???
Me: Well, it is my house, in case you hadn't noticed.

I thought the lining would make the dress to tight for her to sit comfortably in, but I was wrong! She can actually sit quite nicely, provided that I remember to put undies on her next time (I was in such a rush to get the photos done that they aren't very good quality, and I had to get a funny angle for this one so that you couldn't tell that she'd forgotten her underwear!)
Overall, the dress turned out super cute, and I would definitely recommend you try out the tutorial yourself. Only, please don't make the same mistake on the skirt lining that I did! It was so annoying, and I wouldn't want it to happen to anyone else!

The Doll's Christmas-A Photo Story

I did this photo-story ages ago, but hadn't posted it yet due to lack of time. Sorry the photos aren't very good, it was taken the day I got my camera, and I still hadn't figured out how to use it properly yet.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it!



I can't believe Christmas is finally here! I've waited for so long to open that present.
I know, I can't wait to see what we've got!

Come on, open up!

Look, Melody, I got some new underwear! Isn't it pretty?

It is Jenny, and look what I got.

She's so cute!

I'm so excited, I think I'll name her Rosie.

She's really cute, Melody. I love her stripy onesie and her bunny hat!

Isn't she just?

It's a girl thing, when you get a new doll, you always have to take her clothes off to see what she looks like underneath, lol!

Isn't she adorable?

I'm so happy with her!
We hope you had a good Christmas, everyone!

Jenny & Melody xoxo

Rosie was purchased for 6 dollars at K-mart, and Jenny's underwear was sewn by me.

Meet my new girl!

Hi peeps.
I'm guessing the news that I got a new doll has leaked out by now, but thats okay. Because……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………...

SHE IS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I didn't have time to edit the photos, because I wanted to get them posted asap, but I'll try and adjust them at some stage and re-load them on to here.

 Yes, I got Ruthie. She was second-hand off eBay, for $130 dollars including postage. She came with her original dress, but it needs ironing, so I put her in a dress I made her for the photos.

Ruthie is so pretty, and I'm so happy with her! You'll definitely be seeing more of her soon.

She borrowed Melody's shoes and socks for the photo. As you can see, the shoes are a little big, but they still fit well enough.

Hope you enjoyed seeing her!

Yeah, I know, I haven't posted in a while. That's because I've been busy.

With what?

With a surprise for you girls!

What is the surprise?

Can't tell, it's a secret.

Come on, please?

Nope, sorry. You'll have to wait until I post about it in a couple of weeks.

But if you really have to know, it's hidden in here somewhere (well, part of it. I can't spoil all the surprise, so you'll have to keep looking until you find it!) Clue: read between the lines.
It's a new doll! But I can't tell you what doll I got or where I got her until I post about her, K? So now 
What if we can't stand the suspense?
that just makes the surprise of the doll I actually got! So, now you know. But please don't go telling 
Then you'll die waiting *evil laugh*
everyone, okay? I'd prefer if they would find it out for themselves :) There is one more note hidden for 
Yeah, I'm sorry, but I can't tell you what the surprise is until I post about it. You want to know why it's
going to take so long? Because the surprise takes a bit of preparing, so it isn't ready yet.
you in here to read. Go and find it!
But it will be ready soon.

You may guess if you like, but be assured I will not tell you if you are right or wrong.

You'll have to wait.

Until it's time for the un-veiling.

Oh, Gosh I just love being mysterious!

Have fun waiting!

Just so you know, I'm only not posting about her yet because she hasn't arrived! I have to wait until she arrives, which hopefully will be quite soon.

A couple of old photos of Melody

Hi there!
From the title, I'm guessing you already know what this one is about, but in case you don't, I thought I'd just post a couple of cute pics I took of Melody ages ago, but forgot to post. 
They were actually both taken on my bed when I was just experimenting with different angles, so they were really only practice photos. But considering they turned out quite well, I thought they were worth editing and posting for you. Enjoy!

Hi there!
Just letting you know in case you were wondering why I added word verification before your comment will be taken into moderation.
I got a spam comment today (my first), so I deleted it, but if I got one, than that could mean I'll get more.
The first action I have taken obviously, is to add word verification. I'm sorry, I know how annoying it gets, because it irritates me as well when I have to type it in.
If the spam comments continue, I will have to only allow comments from registered users to come through. Again, I'm really sorry about this.

P.S. I hope you all had a great Easter!

I Never Did Post This, Did I?

Hi there!
Long time, no blog. Yes, I know, and I'm trying to improve that.
Here's a photo shoot that I did with Melody back in summer. It was up on the oval behind our house, and she's sitting in an oak tree. I'm going to make videos of all of her photo-shoots sometime, but I'll need to figure out how to make the video uploader work properly before I do that. Enjoy!

Just a quick note...

Hi there, everyone!
I'm just writing a quick note to let you know that I'll be taking a week off from blogging.
I will still try and check my emails everyday, but other than that, you probably won't really hear from me.
I really just need a week's break from this, so I can get some inspiration for new posts, and plan out requested ones etc. Melody will be absent from her blog as well for a week.

See you later!

A Photo-Shoot with Cara

Hi everyone!
Quite a while ago, I did a photo-shoot with Liesl's doll, Cara. Here are the pictures:

This one's probably my favourite. I love her sweet round face :)

I hope you enjoyed this post!

Note: In case you're wondering, I will now be water-marking the photos that I took myself, on mine and Melody's blogs. If you would like to use them, please feel free, but I'd really appreciate if you'd ask first. Thank you!
Naturally, pinning them on Pinterest and the like doesn't count, because there will be a link to the source on the pin anyway.
