It’s days like today where the inspiration is in short supply. All I wanna do is lay around on the couch and eat bonbons while watching something on TV that only requires minimal brain activity. Gah. I loathe when I get into this kind of mindset. I just want to shout at myself, “Hey, stupid, it’s just a little rain. Get off your butt!”, ya know?

Eventually, I did get off my lazy butt and took some photos. 🙂

Sleepytime Momoko

Sleepytime Momoko

Today’s model is Wild & Sexy Tune Momoko. She is the personification of my lassitude wearing I Love How You Love Me Poppy Parker’s nightgown and sleep shorts. Her slippers are nearby as she lounges on a furry throw that I set up on our living room couch. The scene is lit the lazy way, with just the camera’s flash set on full strength. I took these photos in the afternoon after looking outside at the rain and scowling. The fist-shaking and swearing under my breath will be next if the sun does not show itself soon.

Rain, Rain, Go Away. No, Really. Be Gone. Leave.

Please?!

In this house, we are big cat lovers. I’ve had cats all my life. It just doesn’t feel like home without a couple of furballs to share it with. My Mom has three cats, and each of my two brothers has a cat. All of them were adopted from local shelters or rescued from a hard life outdoors. They ask so little and give so much. We consider ourselves lucky to share our lives with them.

Agnes & Rabbitt Catch A Quick Cat Nap

Agnes & Rabbitt Catch A Quick Cat Nap

Today’s model is Wicked Valentine Agnes. She is wearing the pajamas from Christmas Morning Barbie. Her slumber buddy is my cat, Rabbitt (so named for his abbreviated tail). Her photo was taken in one of Rabbitt’s favorite cat nap spots on the back of our couch. As it was taken indoors, a flash was used to light the scene. Rabbitt is actually a fan of dollies and photos. He simply peeped open an eye at me as I was setting up, and then settled back to napping in complete cooperation. My little man is such a good boy! 🙂

You Are The Cat’s Pajamas!

I finished decorating today. I love the way the living room looks with all the ornaments sparkling in the glow of the Christmas lights.  I’d like to set up a few holiday doll displays, but we’ll have to see if I can find time between Christmas shopping, baking cookies and wrapping presents.

Jenny in front of the Christmas Tree

Today’s model is the W club exclusive, Spring Forward Eugenia. She is wearing silky reindeer pajamas and has a stuffed plush reindeer, both borrowed from Christmas Morning Barbie. Her photo was taken in front of my Christmas tree. I messed about with the camera’s film speed, white balance and flash strength to get the soft look of candlelight shades in the picture. I also tied a piece of gauzy material over the camera’s flash to reduce harshness and glare. After all of that, I still had to adjust the color balance to get it to look just right.

The House Is Quiet And The Christmas Lights Are All Aglow,

I’ll Linger Just A Moment More And Enjoy The Peace And Solitude

Before Turning Them Off And Turning In For The Night.

Do you remember how much fun it was to sleep over your friend’s house when you were a kid? Staying up all night giggling and being silly…oh, how many great memories I have! There’s nothing like packing a bag and leaving home for a night to make you feel like a grown-up. Of course, it’s nothing at all like being an adult, but it sure felt like it back then. Sleepovers are surely one of thefinest activities that I ever participated in as a kid. 🙂

Gavin & Bella Have A Slumber Party

Gavin & Bella Have A Slumber Party

This is why the majority of my photos occur outside. As soon as I put the mini blanket down on the couch, Bella parked her little self upon it. If you are the servant of a cat, then you know you can not talk them out of sleeping wherever they see fit. So, Dynamite Girls Vintage Vinyl Gavin had no choice but to share the spotlight today. She is wearing a nightgown and bedroom slippers from the Barbie: Fashion Avenue collection. Bella and Gavin are having a sleepover on the couch in my living room. The photo was taken in the evening with the aid of a full flash as it’s raining and my indoor lighting is flatteringly dark and dim.

*giggle* *giggle* *snort* “Hey! Go To Sleep!” 😉

I love stuffed animals. They are there just waiting whenever you need a little snuggly hug. They bring comfort when you are sad or afraid of the dark (or the darkness that sometimes touches our lives). Even my dolls have stuffed animals. Because doesn’t everyone deserve a little snuggle bunny of their own?

Pretty Calculated Erin is wearing pjs that I created the pattern for and sewed myself. Her stuffed bunny was found at A.C. Moore. The background is my couch. 🙂
