Assembled Ball Jointed Fashion Doll

Today has been pretty magical for a Sunday. I spent the morning writing, working on the first revision of my novel. I love getting swept away in this fantasy story and can't wait to share more details with you. I also wandered into blogs and websites featuring my favourite designs. Places like "Where Women Create" offer endless amounts of inspiration for me and I could languish there all day. But now the sun's come out and it's time to play!
Here is a slide show of my bjd process.....doll one of 7 completed and assembled. Hope you enjoy it!

Lost in Fantasy

OK, so now I'm just in overdrive....two posts in one day. I can promise you that won't be the norm! I've been home with a stomach ulcer, which has mean lots of time in bed watching movies. I worked my way through ever Harry Potter film (LOVE those!!!) and the Twilight series (Really really LOVE those) and then went to see Eclipse at the theatre! Not the least bit afried to say I've read and reread all of the books as well! Finally starting to feel better least a little. But anymore time in bed and I'll have to dive back into the Lord of the Rings.

Anyway, all of this watching has been great inspiration for my writing. I love fantasy movies and books. I'm up to my eyeballs in a fantasy novel involving faeries, elves and witches...over 100,000 words so far...seriously time to start editing! More to come on that. And now I'm really done for today.

New Doll Series

So where to begin.....let's see. How about with some new projects I've been working on. First, the dolls. It's a new series of fashion dolls similar in construction to the Asian ball jointed dolls. I've had the idea on my mind for over a year...finally the pieces have come together....even if all of the dolls haven't yet.

Here are a few preview wip (work in progress) pics. I'll post more as I go and reveal the whole theme of the collection later....just to keep you in suspense.
