Hey, look at the Doomsday Diet chart on the left there... someone is feeling pretty smug right now. Couldn't believe the dial on the scales would ever budge! Yay, I've upped my goal to my weight before all the arthritis problems kicked in about 3 years ago... I used to moan when I'd put a few measly pounds back then... how times change!

OK, got to stop, sounding like bl**dy Bridget Jones!

Mad Hatter

I think I might add something round her neck, but otherwise Alice's Mad Hatter outfit is finished. I love this outfit, I'd wear it! Paper Doll will be available in the shop when it reopens in mid-September ;o)

Alice Paper Doll WIP

Here's a sneaky peek at my "Alice in Absinthia" Paper Doll, hope I get some time to work on her this week ;o) I just hope this one doesn't run into any copyright issues! Dear olf Lewis Carol has been too long in the ground but I think Disney own the rights now anyway... and they aren't in the least letigious are they? Tee hee... don't worry I am safe! Fingers crossed ;o)

Spam blockers

Wow!!! They've finally installed Spam Blockers... what will I do with all the free time now? I currently have to delete around 5 Chinese Spam comments a day so imagine how light headed I feel right now!!!

I say "I", is there anyone out there not affected by this?

Etsy shop siesta

I've decide that as this year has been such a non-starter for Freaky Little Things thanks to my on going back/ankle problems, I am going to close the shop for 3-4 weeks. The summer months are often really quiet anyway so I doubt I'll be missed. When I re-open in September expect a whole new look, new stock and some surprises. Seems a more fun idea to re-launch rather than let my new items gradually trickle in as I get them finished.

I will be showing some enigmatic WIP pics on here in the meantime, but the new work won't be unveiled until the shop re-opens on Friday September the 17th :o)

I'm always blown away by Dorote's lovely dolls, the perfect blend of stylization and realism to my mind, but Zuri is just absolutely stunning! Check her out at
