Pics from FR Convention finally!

I am just getting around to posting pics from my first FR Convention.  First off, I had a blast!!!  I met a LOT of nice people (including some from the doll boards and blogs).  I also gained two wonderful dolly friends whom I have been in contact with since convention.  I took along four travel dolls whom are dear to me.  I couldn't decide on which "one" to take basically because they are the FR dolls that started it for me.

Besties Forever!


Sisters for life!


Now on to the convention dolls (that you have most likely already seen).  I am only sharing a few.  The following are centerpiecce dolls that conventioneers won the right to purchase.  Three people at each table were selected randomly to win the rights to purchase the doll.  The first number called gets the displayed center piece doll.


Kyori

Poppy - (for Popply Luncheon)

Psychedelic Splash Erin (I won the rights for her and she is gorgeous!!!)

FR2 Tatyana

The food was...okay. 




The museum was nice.  I loved that they showcased old and new dolls.

Caught in the act


This one won the competition

Loved it!!  by Johanna (Stinker Stuff)

 I received really nice table gifts.  The following are the gifts that I created for my tablemates.  A dress, four shopping bags and a silver handbag filled with $$ and a passport. Just what a girl needs to Jet Set to a place for some "good" shopping. 

Gucci and Louis Vutton shopping bags (yes, they were empty - Lol!)

Chanel and Coach shopping bags

silver bag w/$$ and passport

And finally some of my haul!  The rest is still packed. 




A pic of Jason Wu and Vaughn Sawyer.  They were both very nice.  Vaughn is one of the designers for Integrity.

I had a blast and look so forward to Orlando in 2012.  Thanks for following. 

Be blessed!

My latest commission

I would like to show you my latest commission.  I was given a photo and asked to create a doll for her Mom's birthday this year.  The picture was a picture of her Mom at her 50th birthday party last year.  She had a 70's party.   Please excuse my pics.  The first pic is a picture of a picture. I couldn't seem to get a good shot without the glare (yes, I even took a few without the flash, but to no avail).

Please meet Ms. Gladys.

My first....any maybe my last repaint

Thanks to Chynadoll I finished my first...and maybe last repaint.  I raise my hat to all repainters.  This was a real challenge!!  I went to JoAnn's today and purchased Liquidtex paint, a couple of brushes (10/0, 5/0), a palette to mix the paint and a sealer.  Next, I had to decide on who would  be my victim.  I had the hardest time trying to decide on what doll I was willing to mess up (lol!).  Finally, I thought of a doll that I received as a partial trade for some comissioned work that I had done some years ago.  The victim...excuse me, the doll is Janay that was an Official Designer Kit doll from Wu Con 2003.  She came with a pattern, spool of hair, and  instructions on how to reroot the hair and list of supplies needed for painting the face.  I told Chynadoll that I would share regardless of how scary the doll turned out, so without further ado, here she is.....

Nadja is totally amazed


"You know it's impolite to stare, right?"



"Really Nadja, it's not that serious!"


Carmen

I plan to give her eyelashes (either rooted or glue some on).  Thanks Chynadoll for giving me inspiration to take the challenge.

Be blessed,

I have completely lost my mind!!



I repeat, I have completely lost my mind!  In my last post the first paragraph clearly states that I am suppose to be on no doll/doll related spending.  I have done everything but that!  After checking out Van's Doll Treasures post on new Barbie Collector Sale and Barbie Basic 2.5, I purchased the new Basic dolls (thanks alot Vanessa-Lol!).  I realized after I confirmed the payment that I should not have been purchasing ANYTHING.  I did get a great deal though.  The three dolls and accessory pack 01 all for $42.75.  I used my $20 Fan club reward and received an additional $20 off for orders over $75.  However, I have completely blown my doll budget for July, August and September!!  I have purchased the following dolls since my last post that was in July....SMH!
