My First Happy Planner - Be Bright - 2016/2017

April 23, 2016, 11:34 a.m.


My First Happy Planner

Its been about 5 months since receiving my first planner, my Webster's Pages Color Crush A5 Planner in white. I am absolutely loving the customizability and functionality of the binder based system. However, like any good planner addict, I have decided that just one planner is not enough; I need more.

I have also been itching to try decorating the ever so popular vertical weekly layout. I have already accepted that I will shortly begin my downward spiral into the abyss that is sticker kits and no-white-space spreads. Don't worry; I've mentally prepared myself.

Anyways, without further ...

My Current Doll Projects

April 16, 2016, 11:37 a.m.


all my dolls

I've been itching to make progress on my dolls lately, so I figured it would be good to introduce everyone to my current dolls and projects! I have a horrible habit of starting more things than I finish, so most of these are works in progress. Although, I think at this point I have enough different types of ongoing projects that I'll always be able to find something to work on without needing to start something new.

Anyways, onto the dolls:

I first got started in the doll hobby through Monster High dolls. This Skull Shores Ghoulia was ...

Plant Fiber Comparison for Doll Wigs

Feb. 21, 2016, 10:46 a.m.


One my absolute favorite activities in the doll hobby is wig making. I feel a good wig can really make or break a doll, and is one of the quickest and easiest ways to completely switch up a character. While I’m certainly no expert at making wigs, it is my most practiced activity within the hobby and I feel like I have enough experience to be somewhat helpful.

I could talk for hours about everything I’ve learned over the past few years, but that’s not why I’m here today. Today, my goal is to show you a few alternative and ...

How to Make a Big Wooden Mr and Mrs Sign

Jan. 24, 2016, 10:49 p.m.


My wedding is exactly one week away. I'm super excited to finally tie the knot with my wonderful fiance and stop spending so much time and energy on things like stamped cardboard sleeves for coffee cups and perfectly tied chair bows just to make the wedding Pinterest worthy. Of course, I bring this exhaustion upon myself since I'm a sucker for overly decorated reception halls and cute little coordinating details.

So, I figured what better way to wrap up my wedding DIY projects in the last, hectic week than to DIY a big, beautiful, wooden Mr and Mrs ...

Azone/Obitsu Hybrid Skin Color and Size Comparison

Jan. 24, 2016, 1:46 p.m.


I really like Azone Doll bodies; I love how well their joints are hidden and naturally flow with their design. This results in a very posable, yet very aesthetically pleasing doll. I'm probably not alone with these opinions, as Azone Doll bodies are commonly used as posable alternatives for stock Blythes, Pullips, and other types of dolls.

However, full set Azone dolls can be quite pricey, which is a waste if you're just looking for a body or want to completely customize an entire doll. As a doll customizer, I didn't really want to spend over $100 ...

Websters Pages Color Crush A5 Planner Unboxing

Jan. 9, 2016, 3:57 p.m.


I guess you could say that I've officially started my planner journey today, considering my very first planner ever has arrived. So what did I choose to buy on this momentous occasion? I ended up purchasing the Websters Pages Color Crush A5 Planner Kit in White. I was a little disheartened not to have found any reviews of this planner online when I was making my decision, so I figured I'd go ahead and shed some light on this mysterious planner for anyone else that might be in same position. I also want to say that this review ...
