Dress 92

5 Nov

Today was a writing day. I stayed up until 5:30 this morning, since hubby was at his sleep test, writing in the notebook, so I had to transfer that all to type today, and then I added a bunch and I pent my paperdoll time writing, too. Good news, i am slightly ahead on NaNoWriMo, so that’s something good, at least.

Luckily, I had one last dress pre-done. It’s for Ethne.  (You can get her here).

There was a pin for this, but I can’t find it, so you’ll just have to take my word for it.

It didn’t turn out quite the way I wanted, but then they rarely do.

And now I am going to take two ranitidine, have a  shower, and hit the hay.

Happy paperdolling!



Dress 90

2 Nov

I should be writing. Instead I got distracted looking at paper dolls by Siyi Lin. Looking at paper dolls always puts me in the mood to make them. (someday maybe I’ll sell them. I sort of tried once – okay, didn’t *really* try hard…)

There’s only two more jammies to share. Today’s are for Jo.  (You can get her here).

Here’s the pin it’s based on.

This is her more romantic set. She probably pulls this one out to impress Thane. Not to *really* impress him. I haven;t done that one yet. ha ha!

Dress 91 will be some silk pants for Thane and then it’s back to the regular weirdness. I won’t promise to do this regularly – I need to get craft stuff done for the sale, I have book covers/formatting to do, and I am trying to do NaNoWriMo to get book 8 done. No wonder I’m suddenly in the mood to draw!

Happy paper dolling!


Dress 86

7 Oct

I’m full. Sooooooo full. But it was worth it. We tried to recreate pizza hut’s discontinued cavatini. We’re close, but not quite there. We’re going to try the purple onions next time and see if that helps because it’s a little ‘flat”.

Anyway, in paper doll land it’s still pajama time! Tonight it’s Ethne’s turn.  (You can get her here).

Here’s the pin it’s based on.

Most of the other dolls have two sets of pajamas; a comfy set and a sort of sexier set, but Ethne didn’t feel like she needed anything except this vintage set. I imagine she’s going to lounge around with her cat and read spell books, or something similar.

I should color a couple up ahead but I have a headache and can’t concentrate, so I don;t know. This bug/virus/whatever is kicking my butt still. Ugh!

Happy Paper Dolling!

The pajama party continues! Today’s nightgown is for Katelina  (You can get her here).

Here’s the pin it’s based on.

I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that she’d best not wear this one to the pajama party. I think Jorick plans for her to wear that behind closed doors.

I’m having problems with word press – it doesn’t seem to want to scroll so that I can see what I am typing, so I am going to keep it short. Happy paper dolling!


Dress 82 and a New Doll!

1 Oct

The new doll I promised you is finally up! You can find him at the bottom of the Amaranthine page. As Juli guessed, it is Verchiel, the crazy redheaded vampire!

or I’ll put him here:

Verchiel paper doll by Joleene Naylor

And with his debut comes his first set of clothes.

Based from this pin. 

He seems to like the Asian styles, not a huge surprise since he is half Japanese. I thought this one turned out pretty good.

In other news I have a flu/bug/virus/something and am miserable, so that’s my excuse for not posting.

Happy Paper Dolling!


Dress 74

20 Sep

I’m going to go ahead and post this early today because it’s Night of Champions tonight (WWE payperview) and my Uncle is coming over and we’re having a mini-party as usual, so I may not get back on.

Today’s dress is for Ethne  (You can get her here).

Here’s the pin it’s based on.

Of course the lace is not the same – in the original it’s flowery but I just used brushes I already had. i do think it needs “something” in the middle where the bodice meats the skirt – like a big snowflake or something. Oh well, it’s pretty as is.

I have six more of these drawn and three colored – it gives me something to work on at night while Dad is watching TV (This used to be my writing time because I stayed up alone, but with the TV on I can’t concentrate to write. I need to learn how to if I ever want to work on my book). Last night we watched Exploding Sun, which wasn’t too bad, though a bit terrifying if the science is at all correct (I haven;t looked into). It reminded me a bit of The Knowing, though it has a better ending.

And with that I am off for lunch. Happy Paper Dolling!


Dress 70

10 Sep

This will be my last post for a few days – we’ll be out of tow until Tuesday or Wednesday. I know I could have a bunch up ahead and scheduled them but who has the time for that? I don’t sadly.

Today’s is a two fer for  for Jo. (You can get her here). It’s based off of a pin for a jacket –

Here’s the pin

but since it was just a jacket it left me wondering what she’d wear with it. Is she a jogger, out exercising in the early morning:

Or is she up a bit later and scooting out to her favorite coffee shop in a crocheted hat (which also came from a pin)?

You decide.

Now I must go prod hubby into making dinner (it’s his turn).
