Betwixt & Between

February 9, 2012

Oh boy, it’s been a while. Do you miss me? I sure miss everyone! I know my last few posts lacked any substance and I tried to get back into the rhythm for the holidays, but eventually decided to just take a break from miniatures and this blog for a bit. Hope you didn’t mind. I’ve […]

Dakotagami

August 4, 2011

I work part time for a non-profit near my town, but most of my time is occupied with running my own small business (of which includes AmazingMiniatures). My business is a home based one and it can get lonely sometimes, working here by myself. Luckily, I have some co-workers to keep me company. Unfortunately, with […]

Shopping For the Dollies

July 9, 2011

I’ve been doing a bit of shopping for them and I am at the point where I’m happy with the way they look (for the most part). I bought a wig from Mimiwoo.com for Dakota. The wig was made specifically for Volks 1:6 scale Dollfies and was a bit overgrown for for him. I was expecting […]

The two dolls finally meet each other! Let’s observe… Oh boy… excuse me while I sort these two out. “You are welcome, Petunia.” *sigh* Okay Dakota, I get it. You want some hair!

Dakota Days: Clothes Shopping

June 10, 2011

I recently purchased some clothing for Dakota (and by recent, I mean weeks ago, but just got around to blogging about it) from an Etsy shop called Crazyhandmade. Part of the problem with Dakota being a tiny boy BJD is that the tinies clothing market is dominated by girly stuff. Affordable boy clothing seems pretty rare. I […]

A Gift From Fran to.. Dakota

May 30, 2011

I’ve been meaning post this for a few days now, but I keep getting side tracked. You know how it goes! This is a gift from Fran of FranMadeMinis, a friend I ‘met’ on Etsy. She’s actually a customer who convo’ed with me and was just so FUN to chat with that we ended up […]

I’m Seeing Red: A Mini Swap!

May 10, 2011

Back in January (or was it earlier?), the wonderful Shopping Sherpa and I had planned on doing a swap for the month of February. I suggested the theme of “red” in honor of Valentine’s day. Fast forward 5 months later, we have finally mailed our goodies, and mine had arrived! (Hopefully Anna-Maria has gotten her goodies […]

Adventures in Mini Sewing!

January 25, 2011

I had a whole bunch of projects lined up but it’s difficult to start anything big because I’ve been sick and flu-y for about 2 weeks now (and I still feel like junk). Sewing was the only “easy” project that I can work on since I can do it while reclined and under a blanket . […]

Fairyland Ball Jointed Dolls for 1:12 Scale!

January 14, 2011

After some delays caused by the snowstorm that hit New England recently, my first asian ball jointed doll FINALLY came yesterday. He’s from a S. Korean company called, Fairyland, but I ordered it through their official US retailer, Denver Doll Emporium. I outlined it all in the old BJD for 1:12 Scale post on the details and why […]

Ball Jointed Dolls for 1:12 Scale

December 3, 2010

I’ve been intrigued by ball jointed dolls (BJD) ever since spotting Donn Kinney‘s work on DeviantArt a few years back. These dolls, also known as “modern dolls” or “Asian Ball Jointed Dolls” are very realistic, very pose-able, and are for the collector who is primarily focused on fashion and cosplay. I’ve never cared all that […]
