no “new year’s resolutions”

Posted by helen on January 8, 2011

no, I dont have, many of my friends dont have, either.

every day can be a new beginning if you want to get things done, why wait for new year?

“simplify & create” –these are the actions I am taking to refine my doll collections. this doll has boren a blank face for at least 4 years, last week I finally put some colors on her face… I still have lots blank-faced dolls. loads of work ahead! learned from my lessons, I will no longer buy any blank faced dolls no matter how CHEAP they are. ūüėÄ

oh, you should check out this nonsense auction on eBAy, this nice seller purchased a blank faced doll, she is as lazy as I am –she didnt do any paint job, now she wants to make people believe a “blank faced gothic doll” is more likable, lets see if her trick works. I know I wouldnt have such luck, so I’d better add some strokes

Barbie As Joan Halloway

Posted by helen on January 8, 2011

I¬†think¬† I have posted photos of Joan Halloway Doll before,¬† here she is again —my friendly reminder, if you have not yet ordered her, you should get her as soon as possible, her price has soared on Amazon.com.

I¬†received her in¬†last¬†Sept, but have ¬†not deboxed her,¬† she is still a “beauty in the box”¬†

the face is pretty, accessories are fine, too.  but I just cant give compliments to the the dress . 

The original dress is a 2 piece set, mattel combined 2 in one, which saved ¬†the seamstress a lot of sewing work,¬† thats cost-effective, I am not against it.¬† but¬†¬†its made of¬† such ¬†low quality cotton twill,¬† Joan is the head of the Secretary Dept. and office manager¬†who deal with high-end clients, ¬†but this dress is a waitress’ uniform— pretty shape but low quality fabric,¬†¬† you know, easy to wash & clean type…
