Just wanted to pop in and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!

Holiday Zing

Today’s model is ITBE Zing from the Gloss convention. She is wearing Foto Fab Poppy’s dress, a Color Infusion jacket from the 2013 convention Style Lab and holds a matching cocktail (the chopped off top of a drink stirrer found at TJ Maxx). Her photo was taken yesterday by the wreath on our front door.

May Your Holiday Cheer

We’re well into crunch time – the big day fast approaches. Soon it will be Christmas! I’ve been baking and decorating cookies, the tree has been trimmed and some of the presents are wrapped. I’ve been a busy little elf. We had a bit of snow, too. So, it truly is looking a lot like Christmas in these parts. Amid the hustle and bustle, I even found time to grab a few holiday dollie photos.

Season's Greetings!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Today’s model is Fame by Frame Imogen from the Tropicalia convention. She is wearing an elf hat crocheted by me, a sweater (sold as a tree ornament) from Christopher & Banks, LIV dolls Moolight Dance Daniela’s dress, Barbie stockings, boots from the 2008 “The Heist” convention Life of the Party fashion, Fashion Royalty earrings and bracelets and rings that are actually craft store jump rings from the jewelry department. I also created the wreath myself. It’s fashioned out of green wired holiday ribbon from Walmart and trimmed with a bow from a spool of ribbon found at Michaels in the dollar bin. Imogen’s photos were taken a couple of day’s ago in our yard – the first two in the front yard (in a snow pile that I carved a little path in – and, yes, she is standing on her own…with a little help from the snow. LOL) and the last image was taken in our backyard.

We Wish You A Merry Christmas

And A Happy New Year!

It’s Christmas night. Many packages have been opened (I feel spoiled by all the awesomeness gifted to me this year!), much food has been consumed (wine, appetizers, Norwegian cheese, ribbon candy, a baked ham dinner and gads of tasty dessert items) and the festive chaos of visiting with family was very much enjoyed. I’m back home now and snuggled into my footie pajamas and Nightmare Before Christmas snuggie, all sleepy-eyed and smiling.

Poppy & her Teddy Bear in front of the Christmas Tree at Mom's House

This is Tears Go By Poppy Parker. She is one of many dollie presents that I received today. She is wearing her original earrings and patterned tights, a Holiday Barbie dress, Fashion Royalty shoes and a pearl necklace that I think came with another Poppy doll. Her teddy bear is one that I’ve had so long that I don’t even remember where it came from anymore. Poppy is standing on the arm of the couch in the living room in front of Mom’s fiber-optic Christmas tree.

From Our House To Yours, We Wish You A Very Merry Christmas.

Oh, it’s Christmas Eve! And we’ve been watching The Grinch – both the animated one and the more recent version with Jim Carrey. I love Christmas specials. We also watched The Hogfather on dvd – I’m a big fan of Terry Pratchett, so it’s a must. Tomorrow we’ll open presents with A Christmas Story playing on the TV in the background. TBS runs it for 24 hours every Christmas and it’s become tradition in our house to watch it.

Erin and the Grinch

Today’s model is Picture This Erin. She is wearing a dress from a holiday Barbie doll (I can’t remember which one), a necklace I made myself and Lady Like Misaki’s glasses. She’s hanging out with the Grinch (bought at Kohls) on a pile of presents in the living room hoping to catch a glimpse of Santa Claus. It’s late, and I don’t think they’ll have to wait long. ๐Ÿ™‚

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is all the time I get to spend with the people I love. I’ve been out shopping with several family members this month and I got to bake cookies with Mom and visited with my stepdad. I’m looking forward to Christmas day when my hubby and I go over to Mom’s house and see everyone. Her little house gets packed to the gills with family and friends. The ones that live out of state will get a phone call and we’ll pass the cordless around so everyone gets to say hello. The skype is set up for a video call to my stepsister and her family in England.

Happy Holidays Dollie Display

Happy Holidays Dollie Display

Just like my family gets together for the holidays, so do my dolls. I put together a snowy display area for them on top of my entertainment center. I mentioned the specifics yesterday – it’s the same background as I used for Agnes’ photo shoot, but she’s got some company now. ๐Ÿ˜‰ There are Misakis, a Bratz, Momoko, Barbies, Poppy Parkers, a Dynamite Girl and Fashion Royalty gals. I added a sleigh, though it’s tough to see through the crowd, LOL.

May Your Holidays Be Rich With Family, Friends And Good Cheer.

Do you remember cutting out paper snowflakes when you where a kid? I do. It was a lot of fun. I remember cutting shapes into the pattern, especially hearts and Christmas trees. I also remember the mess of little white bits everywhere. Good times. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cole And The Paper SnowFlakes

Cole And The Paper SnowFlakes

Today’s model is Odd Girl Out Colette. She is wearing a Barbie Santa hat and Christmas dress, Red Rabbit Misaki’s stockings, Urban Outfitting Nadja’s gloves, Fire Fly Agnes’ boots and a scarf that I made myself. She’s holding a paper snowflake garland that I found a Target a few years ago. She’s standing on a ladder that you’ve seen in previous shoots. And if the background looks familiar, it’s because it’s taken in front of the Christmas tree and decked out pine garlands surrounding the front windows in my living room.

Since There’s Still No Snow Falling Outside,

We’ll Have to Make Our Own Snowflakes.

Well, we’re getting down to crunch time. The holidays are in full swing. The house is decorated, the majority of the gifts have been acquired, cards have been sent out and many of the packages have been wrapped. With Christmas a mere week away, there are still a few things left to do. Cookies will soon be made, a few last-minute gifts will be shopped for and the remaining presents will be wrapped up and placed under the tree. Everything is falling into place.

Barbie Decks The Halls

Barbie Decks The Halls

Today’s modelย  is Gorgeous Greetings Happy Birthday Angel Barbie. She is wearing the blouse from BFMC Teacher silkstone Barbie, aย  plaid skirt of unknown origins, silkstone Barbie’s black hose and a pair of boots from one of the holiday Barbie dolls. The “decked out hall ” in the background is actually the mirror over my fireplace mantle that is draped in artificial pine garland and laden with a multitude of holiday ornaments, lights, glass icicles and acrylic “crystal” bead garlands. A half-strength flash with a gauze filter was used to light the scene.
