project reminder

As Mr. CFO was packing up to head out of town on business he said "so what project are your going to do while I am gone this time?"

Hmmm...good question.  

The answer would be the buffet.  

I found this beauty on the side of the road, it has been ROYAL BLUE, but will now be completely different. Still contemplating the finish color.  Which will not be royal blue.  This morning has been spent sanding, vacuming, spray priming, and cleaning paint off of the door hinges.  --which are being painted black but needed to have a couple coats of paint removed first.

Lily's Debut

This is Lily, she is Mini Me’s first 18” doll—an Our Generation doll from Target.  There are some things I like about the OG line:
1.  Sweet Face—really their expression is cute
2.  Pose able—they are somewhat pose able, not super much, but a bit.
3.  Clothing and Accessories—a wide range
4.  AFFORDABILITY!!  Really, they are 1/3 the price of an AG doll, and their accessories are cute and affordable too. 
The issue I have with the OG dolls is the hair.  Seriously—it’s terrible.  Even if you use the recommended brush, etc.—it’s still going to frizz within a few months.  Unlike AG, the hair is not a high quality.  It is not a wig—it’s rooted—but if you want to replace the hair you are going to have to buzz her head and then apply a wig.  
Despite this issue, I decided to use Lily as the model for this new outfit.  She looks really cute in purple and thanks to the whole Toy Story series, I am now hyper aware of the dolls’ feelings. 
Yeah—I’m sure we could all use some counseling due to issues that stem from Disney.

This is a 2 piece outfit.  The top is separate from the petti-skirt.  Mini picked out the color combination—which worked out well as I had this lavender colored ribbon that needed to be used.  It is available in my Etsy store for $25.

Sweet Treats

I tend to be ‘behind’ in my scrapbooking—however I don’t believe that my eternal salvation hinges on if I am ‘caught up’ on my scrapping so…I’m not fussed about it.  Sundays are the perfect day for me to settle down and get a page or so done. 


As ever, I work on refining my style and trying new techniques.  Nothing super fancy here—just playing with the layout.  Since I bring together all the papers and such when I do a page—thought I would share it with you!

Song of My Heart

My heart sings a quirky tune.  Does yours?  Mosaic tile, sheet music, argyle and polka dots to name a few.  Every time I turn around I find something new about my life to love.
