I just sewed a shirt sideways! The sleeves are now the middle, the middle is now the sleeves… Woops!

Here she is! My chubby-cheeked girl, Reina.
She’s my first Dollfie Dream! I have to make her a body stocking and stain-preventing cap. I did her faceup myself and I’m not sure if I’ll keep it this way, but at least she isn’t blank!

I think I might stop by target and see if I can find one of these girls. The one with the tentacles looks so cool!

Wah! Guess who got here today?
(Hint: My dollfie dream!)

I got a fitbit! I lost my first one (sobs) and I am simply shocked with my sleeping patterns so far.

First night I was in bed for 9 hours, but only slept 5. I lost the rest to waking in the night and restlessness.

Last night, I was in bed for 12 hours, but only got 6 hours of sleep because I was awoken almost 35 times. I lost almost 360 minutes of sleep because of my restlessness and waking.

I might skip a halloween update for my shop.
I’m feeling very overwhelmed at the moment because I am fighting to meet the halloween deadline, which would be posting pictures of my halloween stuff by the 6th in order to have the items arrive before Halloween.

Hi guys! Sorry if you recently received some spam from me from my Skype username. Here’s the message that was sent:

"Привет, я буквально на 2 минуты, в поездке сейчас нахожусь, а рядом терминалов вообще нет, очень не удобно обращаться, но можешь кинуть мне на телефон 100 или лучше 200 рублей на номер +79255788480 (мегафон)? Уже у кого только не спрашиваю. Крайне поможешь, спасибо! Верну сразу как вернусь!!!"

I don’t speak Russian! Anyway, it was someone who got into my Microsoft account (Thanks, its always microsoft that gets hacked into!) And I’ve changed the passwords to my Microsoft account and my Skype now so it shouldn’t happen again.

Hello! I was wondering of you have any recommendations of ways to tell your friends that you like BJDs. I'm kind of worried they'll think less of me for my hobby, especially since I know some of them think dolls are "weird"..
Anonymous

Well! My friends think that dolls are strange too, I just don’t care if they do. It’s not like your hobby will hurt them or anything.

I start out by finding pretty pictures of BJDs, really professional ones, and show them, to see what they think. Go from there! If they think it’s weird, tell them you are thinking about getting one because you think they are cool. They should support you! Especially since you’re not forcing them to play with them or anything.

And you can always get dolly friends.

What the difference between the new dollfie bodies and the dollfie sister bodies?

I know dollfie dream sister was an improvement but is there any reason to get it now that we have new base bodies for the other types?

It’s a slightly less mature style.

I finished paying off my Dollfie Dream! (And then I paid off the rest of my car insurance /cries/ no more payments until February!)

Today I am going to build (or buy?) a lightbox set up! I’m so excited~ Finally, product photos without having to wait for a beautiful sunny day!

This applies to a lot of freelancer and creative professional work. 

I can second this! Just for my etsy shop, photography takes longer than making the clothes or buying the fabric…. I’m going to get a lightbox set up soon though! I’m excited….

WARNING SELLERS bluebirddollshoppe / justabadapple has opened a claim against me for the first layaway payment of two in a transaction which she backed out of, and asked to be refunded.
I found out she had backed out only when she opened the first dispute with paypal. There was no prior communication, and she ignored all communication with me before and after she had escalated it to a claim (for some reason, I do not get email notifications for opened disputes, which I rely on for paypal. I was unaware until it was escalated, but I had asked her for information with no reply). She has since been refunded her second payment, as I was not going to keep that since she didn’t receive the doll.
This second claim came about yesterday, right after the first claim had been resolved, and was escalated within hours (I believe it was rather immediate) so I could not and can not add my side to the story.
She has no right to this money, as it is clearly marked as “non-refundable”. I even confirmed with her via message, but as per tumblr’s terrible messaging system, I do not have a copy of that message.
bluebirddollshoppe justabadapple you have 24 hours to drop this claim. If you do not, I will be in contact with paypal.

Ouch. More hugs for you hon. I know it’s been such a pain in the ass.
Seriously people. If you buy on Layaway do not ask for refunds if you change your minds. In many case when people sell dolls they need that money and it’s hard to pull $300+ out of nowhere. Especially if you have been weeks and weeks late on payments as in this case. I would seriously not refund her any of it.

Paypal doesn’t help buyers on split payments or layaway. Just tell Paypal it was a split payment and layaway/deposit and they will drop it. I know this because someone ripped me off out of $200 on deposits and paypal wouldn’t help me…
