Calling Blythe and Craft people....


Just a quick thing about LJ... I'm wondering how many people still use it?


I haven't updated much but I would really like to continue carfty bloging a bit more and I'm wondering if this is the right place??

So, here's the question..
Do you use Live Journal?
*Sorry I don't have a paid account so I can't create a poll. *

I'd just be really interested to see  the response... and if any one has any recomendations for good blogging her or elsewhere!

Thank you,
Liz. x

How Crafty Are You?

You crafty cat!
Kaffe Fassett's Studio. From The How Crafty Are You? Quiz

"You’re certainly crafty when it comes to making the most of what you have around you. You have the rare quality of being able to sport the potential in lifeless objects and are not afraid to experiment. It may be time to expand your scope by going on a craft course to develop more skills."

I'm quite enjoying Kirstie's Homemade Homes.
I love the idea of making your home quirky and not neutral and boring, using hand made & crafted items and  vintage and restored items. There's been some good interviews with Cath Kidston and Kaffe Fasset. She learned to knit last night. Ah,  Bless her. She found it really difficult!

I can't say that Ive really been insired to do anything as I already hava a flat filled with vintage 60's & 70's bits and lots of toys, except maybe I'd like to do a glass blowing course!  ;)

New dolly day! Woo hoo!

I absolutely love Primadolly Adorable Aubrey. she arrives this morning. I just wonder how many encores Takara can keep making..Awesome Aubrey, Amazing Aubrey....

This girl seems quite foxy in a laid back kinda way!

I've called her Laurel Canyon. I'm reading a book about the California, hippie folk/rock scene called 'Hotel California' by Barney Hoskins, so it's been in my brain a lot lately. I think this girl has a crush on Gram Parsons.

Anyone know about bjd shoes?

I found that I had these shoes!!

I had a bjd doll a few years ago but didn't really get that into them and sold her. The problem is that I can't remember anything about the size or what equivalent body these will fit.

I really don't need them any more can anyone help me identify the size so I can list them for sale.

This was my doll in the middle in pink:



These are the shoes I have:

1 Boots




2. Mary Janes



Also.... is anyone interested?

1st January Update!!

My New Years Resolution is to update more, even if it's just quick.

So, I spent New Years Eve making these cushions from an old curtain. Didn't go out anywhere, just stayed home watching the Avengers DVD I got for Xmas. Lovely!
