A Doll A Day - A 365 Challenge

The start of the New Year is nearly here. 2013. Wow, this has been a crazy year and I feel like I've let too much rush by so quickly. So this year I have a couple of resolutions and they all revolve around my one little word for the year, MORE!! 

I want to take more photos of all my girls, make and be more creative, less procrastination and more active and productive! 

A 365 Challenge

So a couple of years ago I had all the good intentions of going through with a blythe 365, you can see some that I did take here. I loved doing it and it really made me think out of the box. But I didn't finish, and I have a few more ideas up my sleeve! *wink!* 

So this year I've decided to give it another shot! Are you going to give it ago?! Let me know and we can cheer each other on, or join the flickr group. 

One more question, if you're going to give it ago, are you going to go with one girl the whole year or multiple?! I have about twenty four hours to decide and I have no idea! 

Giveaway Winner

Thanks to everyone who took part in the fabulous giveaway I used this morning to select a winner and congratulations Karen!!! If you could send me a message on facebook with your address that would be fantastic and I'll get it sent out for you!

Eleven Wishes For 'Thirteen

Wow, it was super hard trying to think of thirteen wishes for 2013! I feel like I'm a little out of the loop now, but these are the eleven wishes I have for the next blythe year. I know some are a little big, but hey - you just never know. 

eleven wishes for 'thirteen

So first up is the cute kitty and bunny ears by Violet Pi, a laura palmer dress from Sleep Forever, of course a Mab Graves print and a Mimsy bear hat. I know the Mimsy hat's hard to get hold of and so are Keera's dioramas, so I think one wish next year is to try my hand at making one! 

Next up on the wish list would be a Button Arcade dress, probably a monster one two for one of my Milky Robot monster girls, or even two dresses if I'm lucky. I love Caramelody's dresses and wish I'd managed to grab a Christmas tree hat when I could. Again fingers crossed! 

I think it's about time I got a carrier for at least one girl so she's protected, then maybe I'd be happier taking them out more for photos. The Sew Pixie bags are especially adorable for there quilted and hexagon patchwork covers. Lastly, I've saved the biggest until last... a middie! Yep said it out loud, I need would like a middie! Sammy Does' middie is so cute with just enough edge, I would really like a middie with fantasy hair so I could chop and rough her up with some attitude, or a Cherish Me Always as a mini sister for Arrietty! 

So that's my thirteen eleven wishes for 'thirteen, what would you wish for?! Leave a comment or class your self tagged to play along on flickr! 


Back To Normal

Okay, so I've been M.I.A lately, I needed a little relaxation but now I'm back! There's going to be some fun things happening around here, and finally the launch of the shop!

Exciting times!! I'm even going to have more of the crowns that were so popular at Blythe Con UK back in stock!

So if you want to ask me anything or just get in touch go ahead!!


In My Head


Sometimes I just need a little time out to look at how things are running. I'm really excited for where Arrietty's Armoire is hopefully heading, I just need to push myself a little more also. I don't want to stand still with this!

I have so many ideas floating around, it's about time I get them down on paper so I don't forget them.

Blythe Con UK 2012


Well the launch of Arrietty's Armoire shop at Blythe Con UK 2012 was fantastic!!! I absolutely loved the day and had such a fantastic time it is still making me feel so happy! It was so nice to finally meet loads of people in person who I'd only really spoke to online, everyone was friendly and just plain fun!

The hotel was so pretty and plush, even greeting you with the 'famous' warm cookie on arrival! Considering I was craving chocolate on the entire drive down, it was definitely appreciated!! I'm pretty sure that I'll be visiting Manchester again for another stay in the hotel, but also to wander around and take in the sites. Some of the buildings were so pretty, even if I didn't know what they were used for! ;) 


Before the doors opened for everyone to rush through and buy pretty things, I was so nervous I was actually shaking. Needless to say I was worrying for nothing, like I said I couldn't have been happier for how it went! Here's a quick shot of me (now you'll know what I look like if you haven't found me on flickr!) and a picture of the table. I'm so proud of how it looked pretty and presentable, but I guess that might be the artist and perfectionist coming out in me! ;)

Untitledvendor table

Even though I was a vendor I was able to go wandering around a fair few times thanks to my lovely sister Miss Ellie-Lou for helping out! ;) 

On the wanders I was able to snag some pretty things such as the Piparrot alpaca re-root (to die for), the Lounging Linda dress (was kicking myself for not snagging one at the last Blythe Con), rainbow hat by Polly and eyes by Obvious Zebra!! Plus a few small extras! ;)

A New Adventure


I just want to say Hi and thanks for stopping by, if you've found this little site. It's my first go at this and the launch of my Blythe shop tomorrow at the big Blythe Con UK. I'll let you in on a little secret yeah? - I'm scared, but nervously excited.

Above is an outfit I've created as part of the launch. The satin skirt and feather overlay skirt will be available from tomorrow, and the tshirts will be coming soon.
