Purple Pastel Rainbow Reroot for Blythe

…is done! I gave this Blythe scalp bangs. I love bangs and don’t see them as often anymore. This rooted scalp is listed in my Etsy shop at http://www.stephanieasmith.etsy.com and is ready for its forever (or for now:) head.

I’ve already chosen the colours for my next scalp on offer. Blonde, copper and rose. I am really looking forward to seeing these colours together!

Newest Blythe Reroot is……..Wet!

Just a quick share…..I finished my newest Blythe doll reroot and am waiting on the hair to dry.

Tonight, it will dry and tomorrow I will finally get to finish. What a great feeling!

Made It!!

Made it here to beautiful Berry Creek, California and we have been here nearly two weeks now! It is gorgeous here in the Mountains! We are nearly unpacked and have been setting up home and shop.

Of course, I have made time for my dolls! I knitted the rectangles from my own hand spun yarns for these sweater type vests going across the USA and assembled and finished them here. These are my first official dolly pictures in our new yard.

Both of these lovely sweaters can be found for sale in my Etsy shop at http://www.stephanieasmith.etsy.com

Also, I plan to reroot new Blythe scalps for sale. I went ‘shopping’ in my Etsy store and selected some lovely pastels. Here is pictures of the first of many soon to be available scalps:

I’m so excited to be working with some of my premium doll hairs. I plan to make many of these scalps for sale!!

In between these tasty treats, I am almost done with a black sheep helmet for Blythe and am dyeing several custom colours for some lovely return customers.

I may be on a new Coast, but my dolly passion follows me everywhere!

Prairie Fairy….Awaiting the scalp

I had a long internal debate deciding on the hair colours. I had done her face up and then I thought to change her to a raven theme, but I figured that I would stick to my original plan. As a seller of doll hair, waiting for the hair was just a matter of the time it took to create it. I know that a Blythe reroot takes about 1.5 to 2 ounces and that there is more like 3 ounces on the photo, but I always like to have extra on hand. Better safe than sorry.

The hair is now decided on and ready and I await the scalp to arrive for my poor damaged darling. I can’t wait to get to the rerooting part.

Great hair makes everything better!

I’ve still got to find where I put the eyelashes that I want to use. I have some lovely thick featherly looking ones that I have been wanting to find the perfect girl for and I do think that she is it! A bit of dusting with pearl ex with make them just spectacular.

But first, before an eyelash hunt. I shall be taking apart my sewing machine. I had some wonderful suggestions from the wefixit group. I will let you all know how it turns out! fingers crossed and looking forward to the arrival of my sidewinder, either way.
