Well - Christmas is behind us &

the New Year is almost here. I am really looking forward to 2010. Feels like you can sort of wipe the slate clean and start over. I need that this year!

Just finished up dinner... back to eating healthy again. Had some fun with baking and lots of cookies and candies but that is all over. The fun can only last so long. I also finally finished my James from Twilight repaint.

I was almost done with him before the holidays but I just needed to take a little break so today I felt fresh when I finished him up. Talk about a great sculpt. I do hope they use him again in their line - I love his features. So many Tonner dolls to choose from now - I am like a kid in the candy store.

I need to order the new Simon soon - he looks like another great male and I am looking forward to painting him.

Here is a picture of James... happy holidays everyone!!!!

Oh - I almost forgot about my Ghost of Jimmy Angelov inspired by Goran Visnjic as he appeared in Practical Magic.

Happy Holidays!

Yikes! I get so caught up in what I am doing that I totally forget about the internet. Happy Holidays everyone!

Roxy and I have been baking and making candy. We also decided to try to make gingerbread houses from scratch! It wasn't as hard as you would thing. They are so cute. One isn't finished but we have been super busy!

New doll tonight on eBay!

Every so often I have to paint an Ellowyne. Here she is inspired by Britney Spears. Hope you like her.

I got a new Kindle today (a gift for Christmas that I LOVE) and I am having a hard time ignoring it. Yikes! It is just so cool and highly recommended if you like to read.

Not sure what I will get done today.

I need to work though - no Saturday off. I can rest tomorrow. It is almost Christmas! Yikes. I will finish one of the many commissions I have here. I did manage to complete this one. Her name is Callie and she was created out of a Twilight Victoria doll as a portrait repaint of a girl. Her own little Minime.

These two...

are recent pictures sent to me of the new owner's dolls. I loved the pictures and wanted to share them!

One is of Nebula and the other Arctica!


Well - I have a few pictures to share. These are pictures of dolls when they get to their new home. One is of the Underworld girls. I created the blonde, Selene (brunette) and the newest brunette added was Sonja. Dalia's Dolls created some of these terrific costumes. A redhead will be added to the mix to make my part complete.

Oh my - when I get an idea in my head....

On Regis & Kelly they were making this really cool dish and Kelly swore you would like brussel sprouts if you made it. So I am all about new recipes and something that sounds cool. I had to chop up a pound of butternut squash which is HARD to do and a pound of brussel sprouts. That wasn't to bad. I had to roast chestnuts and then shell and peel them - OUCH! After the butternut squash my hands are a mess. It took over an hour to put this together. I will post the recipe if I like it. I am skeptical but hopefully after all that work it will be delicious.

I did some shipping today and mostly finished up a commission. I am very proud of how the commission came out and will share when I take pictures. Yesterday I put an AG doll for Jason Wu in my sales room... she is painted like Angelina Jolie. Here are the pictures.

Started walking on Friday...

but we went out to the hiking path this morning and it was closed! Then I remembered this other nature trail that I always see on the way to the big one. We tried there and found it was a little place for seniors to walk and had little exercise machines along the way. We actually had fun doing them. They weren't very hard but had good stretches, step ups, standing push ups. I liked it. We did take a nature walk too but ended up in the woods and actually found a shack someone might be occupying! Sort of scared us so we headed out of there real quick! Yikes!

Getting ready to start my day but wanted to share a few pictures from ICE finally! I remembered FINALLY to ask Steve J. Here are a few. One is a picture of Christmas trees leading in but I slipped and I thought it looked cool.

Getting my feet wet...

with Zazzle... I have created a coffee mug so far. It is really fun but a lot of work. I have to edit so many pictures! : ) But I did one cup as a practice run. Here is the embedding.

Forgot the pictures!

A new Repaint from me tonight!

I love that Tonner brought Mei Li back. This doll is so lovely. I believe she is sold out now but I won't swear by it.

I named her Nao and was inspired purely by the sculpt itself.

Not much to report over the last several days. I had a little cold which slowed things down around here. But I managed to keep the house clean though and I feel much better after resting.

I think Mei Li is sold already. : ) Happy Tuesday night!
