Getting There

Well, in a total effort to get ready for the cross the Country move from Georgia to California in a pick up truck pulling a 6 x 12 foot trailer with my husband, 2 teenagers, myself, a dog and two cats, I have been committing the ultimate destash. All this is going, going, gone tomorrow.

But, although, I am doing a total reevalution of our belonging while packing, I do make time for dolls. I have some orange suri alpaca doll hair drying and multitude of pastels colours drying as well. I have these lovely green ones finished for a custom. The lady who has ordered these lovely lock is making a mermaid. I hope she sends me pictures when it is done. Love seeing!!

And, so many exciting things to talk about! To add to the glorious excitement, I have finished my Blythe reroot! So glad that I could get this done before we go. I still want to add her eyelashes.

I was going into this thinking Prairie Faery theme, but now she says that her name is Madelaine and her friends call her “Maddy”. She likes Bonfires at night, going mudding in the Spring and fishing all year round.

Well back to packing for me. Wishing you all well!

Two Different Dolls, 2 Different Wigs

Two different dolls, Two different wigs, Two different fibers, Two entirely different styles…same basic technique

One is made of my hand dyed wool and the other my own suri alpaca doll hairs. I could not resist playing with these two very different dolls and giving them each their own unique look. Both the wigs are made using the glue method. The alpaca is wefted, but the wool is attached curl by lovely curl. Both wigs are available for sale in my Etsy shop at: http://www.stephanieasmith.etsy.com
