7th Annual Mad Tea Party

I have decided to give the Fanciful Twist "Mad Tea Party" another go this year. I am up to my eyes in design work a lot of the time and don't get to play dollies much so this will be a good excuse to get something going in the evenings :o) I have put a link in my sidebar if you want to find out more.


This Bank holiday I had a bit of time to myself and decided to tackle my chaotic work room... to be fair, I actually started that mammoth task way back in January. Anyway, I was so pleased with the long awaited tidiness I took some pictures. It will probably NEVER be this tidy again!

End of an era

Hi, congrats to Virginia for being the only entrant to my competition and therefor the WINNER of the giveaway! Yay!!! Unfortunately, Google won't give me your email address so I need you to contact me through my etsy shop please: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Nightshadedolls

Then I can get your address and send off the doll.

So, this has kind of confirmed what I have suspected for quite some time, that either no-one reads my blog anymore OR no-one actually cares about my work... so, as blogging takes up time I could put to better use, there is no point in continuing. It has been really good fun and I met some lovely people along the way, some of you I will still chat to elsewhere but mostly they were "brief bloggy encounters" and that's fine too. So I guess this has run it's course....

'bye to anyone who reads this and enjoy life... it's my Birthday tomorrow and so that is what I am off to do right now... Yve xxx :o)

May Madness Give Away!!!

To celebrate the long awaited arrival of Spring... and the fact that I have been going drawing crazy lately creating lots of paper dolls... I am going to do a Paper Art Doll  free giveaway!

The doll you can win is pictured below and is called Skiya, she was hand drawn by me in pencil and then coloured in photoshop. The model was my lovely Asian BJD, Skiya by the Korean doll company Peakswoods. She comes in 3 135 mm x 200mm sheets. The doll and background are printed on heavy duty 300 gsm smooth white card, with 4 lovely costumes for her on a separate 250 gsm card sheet. Simply frame all 3 sheets as they come or carefully cut them out and dress up your Paper Art Doll.

The print you will receive is of my final prototype, a version of the doll in the photo below. I have since made some small adjustments, mainly to the background for the version I will list in my etsy shop, so the doll you win will be a one of a kind.

So, how do you enter? Well, simply leave a comment below and follow this blog, make sure there is some way I can contact you through Blogger. I will give each person who leaves a comment a number and use a random number generator to pick the winner on Thursday May the 8th (day before my Birthday!). Good Luck :o)
