Oh Boy!!

0Did anyone think I died? Not me! It's amazing how much more time two kids take up then just one.

I'm still around and doing my thing. I've gotten quite a few new dolls and all sorts of stuff I need to get around to blogging about! 

For now just a brief little update:

I've been working on a studio apartment for one of my Unoa girls (there is my Momoko modeling in it right now) as you can see it still needs a lot of work. I was going for the feeling of a studio on the second floor of a very old house. 

I made the floor by pasting down strips of cereal box and painting over them.

I smeared mod podge over the top to make it look shiny like hardwood and to seal it some. I love it!!

A new tiny obsession that my 2-year-old daughter and I share comes with a story. I always saw Calico Critters in the TRU and said to myself "I hope I have a daughter so I can have a legitimate excuse to buy some of this stuff." So for this Christmas we got Ivy a small mix of Calico Critters and Lil' Woodzeez (the Target brand tiny animal toys).

(She's pleased can't you tell?)

These little things - called Sylvanian Families in other countries - are freaking addictive. I literally sat and spent 2 hours with her and the tiny sister playing with these critters. They are so flippin cute and come with such cute little accessories!! So of course if Mama is interested and in love let the downpour of Calico Critters/Sylvanian Families begin!!

We now have a Burger Cafe.

A general store.

A big house we got at the Thrift store for half it's original price!! That's Ivy, Daddy, Mama and baby Verity with Uncle Austin (my brother) visiting by the way.

And of course lots of families - This is Kennita, Mrs. Kenny, Kenny, and Lil' Kenny posing with their namesake in the background here.

I am telling you - LOTS OF FUN. I am hoping to post more fashion doll stuff soon. I've been super busy with the two cute little girls (who have a talent for mischief) - but I'm still around and doing doll things!

I hope everyone has been having as much fun playing with toys as we are!!

How precious is that, Yes, I miss you but when it comes to play time with your kids - that is a priority! I miss playing Barbie with me Dad, I miss my Dad. He would be blowed away with the dolls I have not and all my dollie friends. You pop in and out whenever you want. Play on, play on.

I love the layout for the the studio! It looks so open, clear, and easy to navigate. I can't wait to see your new dolls. And the kids look adorable, espicially with them both playing together! Looking forward to you being back.

Hi, Tabitha. I just found your blog by navigating from the Traveling Twig. You and your friend Liz do some awesome work. However, your best work is your little girls. They are so adorable! I am also from Michigan - I live in Clarkston. I started a doll blog recently, so maybe you would like to take a look? I am working on my first real diorama/home for my dolls and am thrilled with how it is turning out. Take a look at:
