LoveCraft Ladies‘ Shirt

LoveCraft Ladies‘ Shirt I Just ordered this little gem for myself. I think it really speaks for itself.

Winter Knitty Suprises Are Up!

That Moose vest is the cutest.

Integrity Idex Previews...Hold onto your Purse Strings!

You have probably seen them by now...and hopefully you have already fedex'd your life savings to your nearest doll dealer...because these dolls are AMAZING.  The worst part is...there are MORE TO COME. I am clearly not going to survive the vinyl windfall this year.  Some of the current girls need to make way because these upcoming dolls are to good to pass up.

The  I have not been swayed by these in the past but this current line up is more than tempting.  My two favorites of the batch are Exaggeration and Admiration.  The outfits combined with awesome accessories and beautiful facial screening knock these out of the park.  I did manage to resist the pre-order though but I cannot say that I won't be eyeing future sales on these two girls.

 The FR16's look lovely but I am holding out on these until it is the absolute perfect storm of outfit, face, and hair color for me.  Same for the adorable 16 Poppy doll.  The Nu Fantasy Hansel & Gretal...very very c…

Nu Mood Tonner...SQUEAL!

So excited about the dance foot dolls!  I cannot wait for these.  The other body types are cool as well but I HATE wig dolls. 

I will be getting all of the hands though and giving a couple of my superhero ladies upgrade bodies!  I really hope that our convention Wonder Woman doll has these sort of options...

The feet options are also soooo exciting for posing..especially for ballet and dance poses...

The fashions and shoes are lovely but they need to get going on some red ballet shoes ASAP.

New Lizzette Doll at Wilde Imagination

She is cute...I like Pretty Little Lizzette the best.

Meet Lizette!
I had a nice life in New Orleans and I really didn't want to go anywhere. Julian (my dad) got a job in San Francisco so we had to move. Thinking back, I guess I didn't respond well and I made the whole change more difficult for my parents - but I was comfortable in New Orleans. I knew the city. I mean, I had lived there my whole life. I had friends. Well, maybe more acquaintances than friends. But I got along. Plus, I like hot weather and it seems like it's always raining in SF. But I guess all this makes me sound like I'm whining...

Jason Wu for Target line...!!!!! Cat Scarf!!!!

Take a peak at the Jason Wu for target line on this fantastic blog.  Sigh.  I want.  So the ethical clothing challenge will be postponed until February...I will do some damage and then repent for the rest of the year.  I definitely want the cat scarf.  The Cat Tote or one of those adorable blue daisy purses might be on the menu as well.  I'd like to get a dress, skirt, and blouse...possibly a sweater as well.

The full gallery can be seen stores Feb 5th. Hopefully I won't have to stab anyone to get some.

Vampire Paper Dolls on Sale

I think these are pretty awesome.  I adore paperdolls.  I used to draw my own (still do sometimes).  I might have to get these come payday.

2012 Tonner Registration is Open "Flights of Fancy" Wonder Woman

Invisible Jet time yall!  I'm so excited to have another Wonder Woman event! Weeee!  Hopefully it will be in the 16" size as I think most people prefer that size to the big beefy girls (though i love mine).  Must start on a costume!  Also, I do love airline fashion.  I have a fantastic book about the history of airline uniforms.  Who doesn't love a sexy stew?

Tonner Doll Sneak Attack Sales

From the Tonner Doll Facebook blog...

Hey Doll Lovers! 

Due to our brand spanking new system, we are modifying the way we SNEAK ATTACK:  Instead of a one-time use coupon code twice per week and whoever uses it first gets it, we are doing something different.  Think of it as a mini salevia coupon code for our online community only that will strike completely at random once per week, and last only for 30 minutes! Anyone  can use the code, and as many times as they want, as long as it's within the 30 minute interval.  The discount will range anywhere from 15-25% off, and there will be NO EXLUSIONS just like before!  And remember, this will only be announced via Facebook, as it’s an online-community promotion, but our Twitter followers and those who follow us on our new website ( and will, by default, be in the loop and able to take advantage!  The more, the merrier, we always say!

Again, we do the SNEAK ATTACK as a way to show our deep gra…

2012 Resolutions. Making an effort...Giving a damn.

I make them every year...I stick to most of them usually...

No new craft supplies or fabric.
I have rooms and boxes and rooms of boxes filled with yarn, fabric, and craft projects.  It will be hard but I must resist the urge to splurge and shop my stash instead.  I have so much to choose from...I am also trying to include patterns and knitting/craft books in this.  But that might be a losing prospect.  Notions are allowed since I might need to get a zipper to finish a skirt etc.No new clothing.
I did the ethical clothing challenge in 2010 and it was great. I only caved three times the whole year: a backup wedding dress in case of rain from Anthro, a pair of skinny jeans after I hit my weight loss goal, and a Trashy Diva Doris Day dress while on honeymoon in New Orleans (technically I could call this a souvenir).  I think I can do it again this year...especially if I stick to the next resolution.52 Craft Challenge
I want to make something every week...something crafty.  It could be a skei…

Groupon for Textile Discount Outlet

I love this three fabric stores exploded.  But the deals are great.  The trim and ribbon room alone is worth it.  So buy a groupon...check it out.

W Club Registration is Open Until 1/18/2012!

Don't miss out.  I have been super pleased with the W Club dolls as of late.  My Sweet Confections Poppy is AMAZING! Check out Shuga's great pictures on her blog.  I just got my girl out of the box...  I do love her with the blonde hair and tan skin.  She is hanging out with Sunset Rave Ayumi and hopefully I will have a chance to swing by Gigi & Sherry's to FINALLY pick up my long neglected Rebel Spirit doll so that I can have a fun tan girl clique for the shelf. 

This year's upgrade add-on dolls in the 2012 Brochure are fantastic.  I managed to resist last year's offerings as I am not a fan of Kyori (yet).  I am definitely getting this Poppy but still have not decided on the Natalia. She has nice coloring though and does not look as severe as previous Natalia dolls.

The club is a must if you plan to go to the conventions if only to get into the w club lunch and to get early registration access.  However, it is also a must if you plan NOT to go to the conven…
