I still have to figure out how to set up the story telling blog so that it attaches to the various sites, this one does. Thank you for your patience.
I found a YouTube video the other day that showed how to shrink a doll’s head. It is amazing what one finds on YouTube. Although I had heard about custom dolls, and I saw finished products on eBay and the like, this was my first “how to” video on how to shrink the dolls head. How doll artist were taking thrift store finds and recreating them into super models, fashion models, fantasy characters.
This got me thinking. I knew I had or could have some interesting dolls to play with should I want to try this technique. However, to shrink a head, I would need a doll with a wider face.
The other information I got was on how to take off all the make up that was factory applied. That meant I could redo their faces into any other kind of face that appealed to me when I started to reconstruct the doll. These artist not only redo the face, they change the whole makeup from head to toe.
The doll on the far left will be a good candidate because her leg is broken at the knee. She needs a new leg, someone had tried unsuccessfully to perhaps undress her and snapped her knee at the ball joint, it is ruined, unless I can dig out the broken stem. If I replace the leg and totally repaint her, the different skin tones won’t matter.
The Monster High Dolls, I love their faces, so doubt I would play around with them, I have a collection of these little ladies that are just waiting for me to get to them to clean them up.
The two dolls on the end of the middle picture, I don’t know them, when you move their bent arm, they talk. Actually the three of them, are not of too much interest to me, only the one I want to “change”. Sometimes it is not till you get them home and have a good look them, that attraction either holds or it doesn’t.
Isn’t that what life is like too. We think we want something, and we go in search of, and find what we think we want, only to discover when we have had time to be with the “object” or in the situation we thought we would enjoy… that we go.. “What!!!”
Time is a factor in all of this.. In 24 hours your mind can go through many warren holes and different doors. Seen and taken in, sights and sounds, it hadn’t known when your first impulse came .. or an idea formed.
On the other hand, when you act on the spur of the moment, you can find that .. “wow, that was a wasted effort” That is what makes life so interesting, it can be so unpredictable, and if you say.. ” life is the same, day in and day out” then my friend, you need a new viewer.
The only constant in life is change. Think carefully, you are not the same person, from one day to the other. The change might be miniscule, but change there is.
From me to you… have a great day.. be kind to one another, share a smile, say hello!
remember the puzzle, where something is out of place…. hmmmm
There is one in every crowd. What can I say. the girls say.. Have a great day, it is soon the start of a week-end. enjoy your day, where ever you are..

off in the distance,
under the afternoon skies
they saw the same grouping
that they were looking at
just down the path
half covered by vines
they stood rooted on the spot
to be uncovered
Yvette arrived earlier
Clementine was due next week
excitement was building
Rosie promised she would
let them explore her
chest of drawers
they still had no idea
where the music came from
it happened when she was
working in her room,
and now, double statues
3 maidens high above
and 3 maidens on the ground
somewhere there was a clue
quietly no words spoken
walking deeper into the gardens.
neither saw the chest hidden further in
from where they had been standing.

Peaceful sleep, a deep slumber, or simply resting, our bodies need the down time. Time where physically we can just let our bodies relax in whatever way is comfortable. This way, not having to thinking of anything in particular, we can allow the mind to drift.
There are some who find that it is easier to have low lighting, and quiet, and others will tell us they like quiet music. Their mind latches on to the melody and they float off into space.
Back when… we used to call wandering in space astral projection. Are you familiar with that expression. Dreams are a form of memory recall, but in a code known only to the Universe. Eartha* and I touched briefly on this during our last outing, From very different backgrounds, and cultures, we still … as human… relate pretty much to LIFE in the same way.
As writers, a dream world is ever-present in our daily lives, as an artist, dreams explode into colour, pattern and textures if we paint, if we are musical, our voice, or skills with musical instruments, take us beyond our own realities.
Imagine a world with out dreams. Let go of day-to-day drudgery, allow your spirit to soar and take flight. Explore in the night, your inner Universe will bring a kaleidoscope of worlds, past ,present and future to you, open your mind to new possibilities =^_^=

—————————————————————————————————————————————— the day started at an easy pace, we were all still worried about Sam’s delay, the estimated time of arrival was July 11th. mid day. Finally when we still had not heard, we had no choice but to wait till today.
The surprise was that Celine arrived a day early… so time was taken getting her settled into her rooms. Her hair was a fright. Nothing would do but she wanted time at the spa.

Sam bless her heart, finally arrived, by this time, we were nearing panic mode. All is well, Dragon Soft, kept us calm.Sam was really tired, we have all decided it is best to let her rest up before we find out about her journey here. (from United Kingdom) (A girl for all Time)
Both young ladies will add so much to our already dynamic “Family”
