Dress 97 & a new doll!

18 May

I mentioned somewhere that I made a new doll in January, so I decided it was time to share her:

Cherry Paper Doll by Joleene Naylor

As you can see she’s more traditional – aka the colored outlines instead of the black ones. I’ve actually thought about backtracking and redoing all y dolls that way (color replace) but I dunno. I’m pretty lazy.

And what’s a new doll without a new dress? So here is Dress 97!

As you can see, it’s made for Cherry.

And here is the pin it’s based on.

I’m reasonably happy with it. What do you think?

And now I better get something useful done!

Happy Paper dolling!





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.

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 87

I missed a few days. It happens. 😉

Back to our Pajama party, today’s jammies are for Jorick. Yes, this is his first outfit since I’ve been back. If you don’t have him yet, you can get him here – and be sure to grab his other clothes.

Here’s the pin this outfit is based on

Like Ethne, Jorick gets only one pair of jammies, but that’s because he says his other set is his birthday suit *cough* but as this is a g-rated site, you just get him in his under-trunks as a doll, so I guess that will have to do.

And now I may go work on a halloween wreath. or else on last minute things for the online party that starts tomorrow.

Happy paper dolling!


Dress 83

4 Oct

I had a busy weekend, but I am alive and I have a “dress” for you today. I say “dress” because it’s Verchiel again. (You can get him here).

Here’s the pin it’s based on.

Yes, it’s a pair of jammy pants, because everyone needs jammies, which leads me to my next several “themed outfits.” When I was a kid it used to annoy me that dolls didn’t have coats, or swimsuits or pajamas. And it seems I have done the same thing – Thane is the only one with jammies. To correct this, everyone is going to get a set of pajamas (or two), so get ready for a paper doll pajama party! (As you can see, Verchiel has his pillow ready!)

And with that I leave you. Enjoy some jammy time and 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:

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 81

Got a bunch of work and a fever, so work may wait. Bleh.

Anyway, today’s outfit is for Jo. (You can get her here).

Here’s the pin it’s based on.

It’s the fancy dress I promised you. The pin has only the back of the dress visible, so I had to make up the front. Until it was colored, I didn’t like it, but it turned out really good. Or at least I like it.

Tempted to go to bed but I hate to abandon Dad…

Happy paper dolling!
