Flickr account deleted ..update!

Just wanted to give a quick update that Flickr finally did take some pity on me and allow me access to my old account for long enough to save my images, yay!!  I've currently got all my old photos back onto my new stream, just working on creating sets now.  Thanks again so much for all the support!!

As most of my friends know by now, my Flickr account was deleted (by Flickr) yesterday, supposedly for breaking the rules and using my stream too commercially.  I did have photos of my latest custom (who is for sale on ebay currently) and had a link to the listing in my profile, as I thought that was allowed.

My account was deleted with no warning or even an email from Flickr, all my photos, sets, everything are gone.  I have written them and I am *hoping* they will work with me somewhat in getting some of my pictures back, at least ones of my daughter, but haven't heard word on that yet.

I will slowly be rebuilding my new photostream.  I think I may have some of my custom work photos on file or in a place they could maybe be recovered, but I know many are lost forever probably:(  Please be patient with me in getting photos back onto my new photostream of my custom work.  I will continue to work on commissions and post commission photos, I will just have to be very careful with my wording I guess.

Though this has me totally devastated, it's also made me realize that I have lots of friends in the Blythe world I cherish very much!  THANK YOU to everyone who has left me kind and concerned comments and messages, it's really helped me a lot!!  Hugs to you all!!

Here's my new photostream:

Newest custom available on Ebay!

Custom #71
This sweet girl has been wishing and hoping for the carnival to come to town, and now would like to come to yours to share it with you! 


      She is a base doll NickyLad (RBL), with the following customizations done by me.. 
  • Alpaca reroot in several shades including natural red, orange, yellow, pink, and white 
  • Stock makeup sanded away and given a new faceup with pastels and acrylics 
  • New faceup sealed with MSC
  • Nostril holes and philtrum slightly carved 
  • Lips carved, painted, and glossed
  • Natural sprinkling of freckles 
  • Metallic shimmer around her eyes for a dewy finish  
  • Eyes boggled, gaze corrected, and given sleep eyes 
  • Special new pull strings and pull charms including shimmering glass beads, vintage flower beads, and clown pendant 
  • Metallic painted eyelids with painted glittery star detail
  • Bottom part of eyemech painted to match
  • Four new sets of eyechips , which are..
*Front facing: Midnight blue
*Left facing:  Plum purple
*Front facing:  Amber gold
*Right facing:  Olive green
  • Eyelashes replaced 
  • Given a quality Licca body (if winning bidder prefers her Takara body, please let me know and she can come with that instead) 
Her Alpaca reroot was done via knot method, and has a loose center part, meaning that you can move it around or style it different ways if you'd like.  My Alpaca reroots have been featured on MademoiselleBlythe blog.  Alpaca hair is straight, soft, and has a very unique look and texture.  Alpaca hair can be heat styled just like other natural fibers, like Mohair.  It is easy to style, and I will be including my Alpaca care and styling guide for her new mommy or daddy. 

She will be traveling to her new home with all clothing, accessories, and toys pictured, including..
  • Custom made Fishknees dress made just for her
  • Lalaloopsy ferris wheel, doll, and doll's accessories
  • Lots of extra goodies for her and her new mom or dad

Thanks so much for checking her out!!<3

Something I've been trying to make a lot of lately!

I've been working super hard to get our home in order since we moved, and also on getting some commissions finished and new ones started!  It's not been easy to find time lately, Alice has been keeping me very busy, but I love having the creative outlet of Blythe in my life!  Here's a pic of my new customizing space...

And here's a few Work In Progress preview pictures of my latest customs I've been working on..

Avery, commission for Kathi                            
Hero, commission for Maggie

Sprinkles, commission for April

Wembley, personal custom

And last but not least, I just want to mention I'm planning a special Ebay girl for this month.  She's going to have an Alpaca reroot, and will come in an awesome custom made dress just for her, as well as some special toys to her new home!  She'll be listed sometime next week, so keep your eyes peeled for preview pictures soon!! :D
