Goodness, where has the year gone?

December - the last gasp -- 12/26/2016

So, where were we?  This year has flown by. I do hope those of you who visit here have found things to help you, to inspire you. 
I've wandered a very strange path and find myself returning to my center.  This is a good thing. My latest adventure has been a big challenge- I am learning to use ZBrush, a 3D software program. More info at the end of this post. 

3D printed Elephant

Fall brought me back to one of kind designs in doll fashions.

Happy New Year Gown
Hand beaded with stretch liner attached inside, closes with a zipper.

Beach Baby

Lime in Da Coconut

Baby Doll Dresses

The latest chapter around our little home and studio - a 3D printer.  My hubby Chance has made some magic - shoes for my Divas.  We are just getting started with this.  It is quite the adventure!

These were too big.

The next pair were too small.  
But the ones after that were just right!
Bonus: The too small ones fit my Sybarites.

Why I am learning ZBrush.  
3D printing is cool, but you need designs to print.  This is my first try in the program.  Much more will follow. A great adventure is just beginning!

I hope the New Year brings you all nothing but the best!
Cheers!  PB

Store News and More

Back At Work - Yes!

New items being added to Dolly Dolly Fashions 
on Etsy almost daily.  
Some of these are sold, some get listed tonight.

And then...

Meet Star.  My newest Kingdom Doll.

I made something just for her when I found out she was mine!

I think she likes it!

The Dress Form

This is the first dress form made for Kingdom Dolls.  I am slowly making a tutorial about making your own form.  Slowly because I am still learning what works best.  Dauphine  modeled with the form before sending it to the UK to Amanda.  Amanda designs and sews for these dolls.

So how was your January?  We are strolling quickly into February.  More new things coming.  Thank You for hanging in there with me.  Your comments and emails of encouragement have helped so much to push me along through some rough patches.

Happy Valentines Day!

Cheers, PB Ray
