Where Has the Summer Gone?

October 2, 2016

Well, summer sure flew by!  I spent most of it working at my real job and not a lot of time playing with dolls or keeping up with my blog.  Shame on me!  But, here I am, on the 2nd day of October catching up a bit.

A few things happened this summer.  Firstly, I received my cute Fairyland Tan RealFee Mari two days before we left for vacation on August 25th.  She is just adorable!  I love her size and she poses beautifully!  Her resin is a bit darker than I thought it would be but still a very lovely color.  I just love her droopy ears!  To me that’s what makes her so darn cute! :0)  I haven’t had the chance to do much with her yet.  Like I said, work has kept me very busy and by the time I get home I don’t have much energy left over.  (This time of year is usually when we slow down and I have a couple of weeks where I’m laid off, but we’ve taken on a couple of new customers who are keeping us quite busy.)  Anyway, I plan on sending her to Ban Sidhe for her faceup once I figure out what I want her to look like, but for now, her sweet blank face will have to do. :0)  I also plan on making clothes for RealFees to put in my Etsy shop but that may have to wait until 2017.


Right out of the box.  What a cutie!

Like I said above, two days after Ma’ari (that’s her name) arrived, we left for our family vacation on Topsail Island, North Carolina.  It had been eight years since we’d been there and things have changed a bit, but the overall atmosphere was still the same: a family friendly beach environment great for relaxing and recharging.  I took Kess along with me and a little felted mouse named Melody that I bought from an artist on Instagram. Check him out here: Hansugarhippie

Melody had many adventures with me on the beach and in the maritime forest around the beach house we rented.

I had made a swimsuit pattern for MiniFees and made some swimsuits for Kess to model while we were at the beach.  I took most of the photos on the deck of the beach house.  The lighting there was wonderful!  Then on our last day, early in the morning, I took Kess out for shoot on the beach.

I do eventually plan on adding these swimsuits to my store but I have a couple of other projects that I have deadlines for before I can focus on new items for my Etsy shop.  And then of course there’s work and Thanksgiving then Christmas… when will it ever end?!?

Till next time…. :0)
