Hi Everyone,

It has been FOREVER! Forever and ever! It has been a really long time since I posted everything. And I have no excuse except for my 5 boys and homeschooling and well LIFE has gotten into the way of my creations.

However I recently finished making one of our "extra" bedrooms into an office and I have been spending all my spare time in there working.

I have been bitten HARD by the Monster High bug. I prefer collecting them to ALL other dolls right now. I still try and pick up a Barbie or Fashion Royalty doll from time to time but honestly I just prefer Monster High dolls.

I have been collecting supplies and items and S-L-O-W-L-Y rerooting a Monster High Create a Monster. However a "friend" sent me the instructions for "Trolling" hair. And I finally got up the courage to try it. Trolling is completely different from any "rerooting" technique I've ever tried. You take hot glue and yarn or mohair and GLUE it on the doll's head.

I will now show you my newest creation


This is a Draculaura Doll. She came in the 1st Clawd and Draculaura Gift Set. At this point you can see I have removed all of her hair.

And her she is today:

Draculaura has been repainted and had her hair "trolled". I love the way she turned out. The trolling process is much faster than rerooting and I'm still getting used to it. I think I'm going to prefer working with yarn while trolling, instead of mohair or fibers. 

I hopefully will be able to update next week.
