Favorite Mode of Transportation

Ever since she swiped this skateboard from a Bratz boy, it's been her favorite way to get around. I think it suits her.

Fluffy Pink Naptime

At Target I also found a full sized Bratz "Sleepover" set. There were some interesting things in it, with some potential, and since Miranda has a sleepover to attend next month, I figured it was worth investigating.

("This, right here, so totally mine. Oh yeah. Is that a.., is that supposed to be a frog?" - Miranda)

First thing to try was the bathrobe, but as with the other Bratz things, it was much too big.

("Hey! Look at me! I'm a little pink Jawa!!" - Miranda)

A little hand stitching, and a quick machine run straight up the back and....

("Ooh, comfy cozy! But the freaky frog thing has to go." - Miranda)

Tiny Little Diva

This was a full sized Bratz outfit set, with some pieces Miranda seemed to like.

A lot.

But they were all way to big on her.

Always up for a challenge, especially for Miranda's wardrobe, I sat down with needle and thread and began attempting to modify it to make it Miranda sized. I worked until I couldn't see the thread anymore, and then I went to sleep and dreamed of this dress, and finished it this morning. And here's what it looks like.

I think she's gorgeous. And she needed a formal dress, for the piano concerts she'll be doing for the stuffies over the holidays.

The modification was a pain in the butt, and ultimately I don't know whether it was worth it or not. I'll play with a few more pieces in the set before I decide whether I'd buy another one and try it or not. We'll see!

Watching a Friend's Dog

Miranda watching her friend's dog while she was away. I think they both missed her.

New Eyes & New Hair

Oh wow. I hadn't thought it possible, but I think he is actually even CUTER with the blue eyes.

And I fixed up his wig.

Behold the cuteness.

Introducing Taelyn

Taelyn's story has yet to be told, but he'll be showing up soon enough. For now, he diligently guards my pencils and paperclips.

Back to Denver Doll Emporium - Pt 1

Miranda - I'm bored. I thought you said we were going to Denver Doll Emporium today?

Wendy - I did, and we are, but I'm checking my e-mail and then I need to take a shower.

Miranda - Your e-mail looks pretty well checked to me.

Miranda - Taking a shower requires the computer?

Wendy - (smile) Not normally, no.

Miranda - Okay then!

Wendy - Miranda, get away from that power button! Don't... (click)
