Here's a picture of the TV, in the box, I will place it in my house later =)
I will take a picture of my other price when it arrives =)
I have had some sleepless nights, I have too many ideas I could not sleep, but I got to do some of it last week =) But I'm busy with my daughter and cant spend all day mini-making ;) But its fun being a full-time mum too, but sometime I miss making miniatures all day and night and when ever I want.. Maybe my daughter will be making miniatures with me some day =)
Last week I was so eager to work with my clay again =) And my daughter and husband most have felt it, because I got 3 hours on one day to my clay =) (and I still got to see my lovely grandmother, aunt, mother and brother =) My brother might be the man to thank for this too, because he played so much with my daughter for two days in a row, so that she just fell asleep when we got home =) )
You know the saying: less is more, that is so not true when it comes to "clay-time" ;) I could have worked day and night, I'm just so inspired right now!!
Anna made some Blythe-dolls and just like her, I would love a Blythe, but they are so expensive.. But I never thought of making my own in miniature before Anna made one, then I just "had" to make one too =)
This is my first try. I thought I could make the legs movable.. I haven't finished this one yet... I went nuts and made a few more instead ;)
They are all quite different from each other =) And I don't know if anyone will ever look like a real Blythe..
I have been working on them for several days now, and I'm still not done, but some are almost done. I don't think any of them really looks like a real Blythe =( But they look like dolls, and I will have to be happy with that, and since I LOVE dolls I might just keep all of them ;) (They might fit in my future toy store, if I don't use them all in my house =)
And I tried making a baby doll too.. but I'm not really satisfied with my results..
I don't like doing eyes.. Why do we have to have 2 eyes, and why do the look so similar?! ;) I hate doing two of some thing..
I saw this tutorial and thought I could do some eyes for my needlefelted animals, but as I said, I don't like doing eyes.. so I haven't started on them yet ;)
But I did give my dolls some simple clay eyes, I think they turned out OK.
Last week when I started working on the hair I remembered how hard it is to wig a doll, I just can't get it right.. I tried with some fake hair, some plastic hair that wouldn't bend that easily.. I just got out of self confidence and patient, and the dolls were out of scale and proportions..

And to dress these dolls... don't get me started on that ;) I just gave up this for awhile, but then I tried making dresses from clay and I did do one doll with both clay dress and hair, completely made of clay:
But today I remembered that I got a "yarn" of linen. I got it from a plumber that thought it would be perfect for my mini-making and he was right =) This was so much easier to work with, and I got my patient back =) I tried some doll hair from Panduro too, looks like yarn.
My daughter woke up before I got the time to give them a haircut ;)
yes, the box is finally done =)
This box can be open, didn't take any pictures of that.. you just have to trust me on that ;)
Finally this long post has come to an end... =) I thought I wasn't going to write as much today... but I guess "I'm a writer" I just cant help myself.. writing is my thing ;)
