Shop review: The Daughter Who Sews on Etsy

Image
Hello ghouls! How are you doing?

As I told you on my last post, I'm planning to introduce on this blogs other subjects besides crafts, which, to be sincere, I haven't been working on. This is my first shop review, so I'll try to do my best. First of all, I'd like to say that this review is based on my personal opinion and that I didn't recive any item as a present to make this review.

As you may know, I'm always trying to make a bigger wardrobe for my ghouls and lately I've been lurking on some Etsy stores. I found The Daughter Who Sews on Etsy because of another doll collector and I have to say that I love their shop. Seriously, you should visit their store and check out their goods, they've got a wide variety of dolls sizes and designs.

I have to say that this is the first thing that I've bought on Etsy and has been an overall good experience. I find it's a safe place if you want to buy handmade goods. I wanted to buy just a couple of stockings …

Where are we going now?

Hi ghouls and mansters? How are you doing? Finally, I'm done with my finals, so now I'm supposed to have more time to do crafts and post here.

I started this blog a year ago because I wanted to build a dollhouse for my Monster High dolls, that were supposed to be only 4 in the beggining, and now I've got 33 dolls. Due to the lack of spare time that I have (studying and working at the same time is harder than it seems), it's been impossible for me to do anything during this winter, but I'll try to take advantage of the summer. Now I don't feel like building a house anymore, but I seriously need new scenarios for my doll stories. I feel more like doing a couple of dioramas, like a doll bedroom or a classroom, that will be easier to store.

Hello my dear doll lovers. What you've been up to?

I'm sorry I don't post on this blog very often. I always promise myself that I'll take it more seriously, but between my studies and my job I don't have much time to craft and take doll pics. Furthermore, Mister Monster and I are finally moving together and as the house is quite old we need to give the house a whole makeover, so I'm spending all my spare time painting the walls and looking for new furniture. 

Despite not having much time, we made an effort to enter My Froggy Stuff's  "Doll  Selfies" contest  in order to win Ever After High's Cedar Wood. We didn't win, but sure we had a lot of fun taking the pics. Here are some of them.



And this is the pic I sent to the contest

I'm also currently working on a paper mache stairs to display all my dolls  for a group picture. When my doll collection reached 20 dolls, I tried to take one, using books and old tapes so the ghouls on the back coul…

Doll kitchen + quick craft

Hey ghouls, I'm back.

As I told you on my last post, this Christmas holidays I bought for myself a cheap doll kitchen. It's very complete, it's got a two door fridge, an oven, a microwave and even the stoves have a little light, but unfortunately, the plastic is cheap and the back part of the furniture is just a piece of printed thin cardboard attached to the cabinets with a piece of adhesive tape.

Anyway, this playset allows me to set a doll house scenario (well, a kitchen scenario) and take different pictures. Here are a couple of them:



No time, no crafts

Hey ghouls! It's been ages since I last posted, but I have no time since I've started a new job and my studies again. I felt so sad about having this blog so abandoned that I've decided to make a small post telling you what I've been up to.

First of all, back in september I bought two new ghouls from another doll collector that I found at Doll Observers. This ghouls were signature Nefera and Toralei. Buying from another collector is a good option if you want a doll that is hard to find, but always make sure that is a safe purchase. It's also a good idea to ask the other person to send you a picture of the receipt from the post office. Here are some pics of the ghouls:



I also got Ghouls Night Out Lagoona, Mr. Monster bought her for my birthday. Check her with some of the ghouls in Scaris


Then I took advantage of an offer at Toys'r'us and bought I love fashion Scarah and some accesories for my ghouls. I wanted Scarah because she's diferent from other ghouls,…
