new OOAK handpainted eyechips at Cover Your Dolly

Hello friends :)
I've been handpainting some eyechips lately, and have put some up for sale at Cover Your Dolly.  I often get started with one idea for a custom girl and then decide to go in a different direction as I'm painting, so I end up with lots of unique mixes of colors and patterns.  Here are a couple that I have up right now, for example:



These are both still available, and I'll be posting more throughout the week!  :)  I hope you like them, and as always, I welcome any feedback.  Thanks for visiting, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Petite customizing spree!

Hello!
These four tiny gals are currently "on my slab" in my laboratory... I mean, studio.  That magnifying lamp has me feeling more like a mad scientist...hehe... :D  I love these little ones!  These are their "before" mugshots.  So sweet and innocent-looking, no?  We're ranging from a few changes to total overhaul:  I'll be excited to share the results!


I hope you all are having a refreshing start to the new week.
love,
Phillaine

Updates, updates, updates!

Hello friends,
As most of you know, the past couple of months have been personally very tragic for me-- I thank you for your patience and kindness during this difficult time.  That being said, I'm back!
Here's what's new--

*I updated my custom commissions waiting list and custom Blythe project list today (click on "Custom Blythes" button above to check it out).  As you can see, I'm going to be customizing petites like crazy!  Breaking out the magnifying lamp! :)  Also on the customizing front, I'll be handpainting some custom eyechips during this time, and may make some of them available through Blythe Kingdom.

*Cover Your Dolly is up and running!  I'm working on a new and exciting line for the holidays and beyond.  I hope to release it soon :)  For the month of November enter coupon code ELEVEN for 11% off your order (this began 11/11/11, of course).

*I've been the Blythe Swap group administrator for 7 months (and 7 swaps) now, and am pleased to announce that I will be beginning the new year with a co-administrator!  You all know Anne from participating in swaps and running the group's twitter page, and we may have a third person helping as well so that we can get a regular newsletter going.  If this sounds like your kind of thing and you'd like to be involved, please feel free to contact me on flickr or Blythe Kingdom.  I will keep everyone informed with more details.  The first place to go for info. on the group (or if you want to join in on the swapping fun!) is our flickr page:  http://www.flickr.com/groups/blytheswapgroup/

*Just-for-fun news:  I've relocated my studio and it's bigger and better than ever--so exciting!  I'm having a blast getting everything organized, and I'll be looking to all my crafty creative Blythe friends for inspiration!

*Last thing:  as you can see, I've redesigned the blog, and I'd LOVE any feedback from you on what you like, anything that's confusing, possible improvements, or any ideas you might have for the site.  I look forward to hearing from you!

love,
Phillaine
