Valentine's Day is coming!!!

   And what better way for a lovely girl to feel even lovelier...than a pretty set of lacy lingerie!

I have several sets of lingerie available in my Etsy shop including this gorgeous set with red hearts in black lace.

Each set is made from stretch lace which should allow it to fit a variety of 16" Fashion Dolls and MSD sized BJDs such as my model Lena who is a Large bust Active Line Minifee by Fairyland.  This set will also fit other similar sized dolls such as Ellowyne Wilde and Delilah Noir.

These are just a few of the colors I have available, with more colors and styles coming every couple of days!

Character Bios---Lena Markum

Lena Marie Markum is a 22 year old College Senior.  She is in culinary school, with dreams to one day open her own Cafe with her best friend Abbie Dupree. Lena is an only child who is doted on by her parents.  She doesn't see them very often as they live on the West Coast and she chose to attend school on the East Coast.  But they keep up via weekly phone calls and frequent emails.

Lena has what she considers boring brown eyes and needs glasses.  So she can generally be found wearing her contacts instead.  She likes to play around with her appearance and has many different colors of contacts including aqua, dark blue and her personal favorite: PURPLE!

Lena's hair is wavy brown in color, but she has a collection of fun wigs.  Her current favorite is a lovely burgundy shade.  But she can often be seen in her rainbow colored wig or her cotton candy colored wig as well.

One of the first things she did after turning 18 and graduating from High School was get a tattoo.  She has loved peacocks since she was a little girl and chose 2 facing peacock feathers as a 'permanent necklace'.

Her tattoo was done by Ban over at Ban's Boutique , she is amazing artist.  Not one for being overly modest, Lena takes great pleasure is showing off her artwork. Lena's tattoo is her pride and joy. 

When Lena isn't at school or at the little coffee shop she works in, she can often be found at home reading, playing on the computer or spending time with one of the girls 3 cats.  She also enjoys hiking, horseback riding and just spending time outside.

Lena is a Minifee BJD by Fairyland, with face-up and custom tattoo by Ban's Boutique.

Welcome 2015

Happy New Year my friends! Hope you all had a fun and safe celebration last night.  May everyone's 2015 be filled with love and laughter, joy and blessings!

This is the post where I normally make all kinds of 'resolutions' and lists of things I want to do.  And sometimes I stick with them... for a while.  But I think my only resolution this year will be to give whatever I am doing my best effort. Hopefully that will keep my from being disappointed that such and such fell short, or didn't happen or what have you.

2015 will be another year of big changes for us.  The hubby is set to 'deploy' again, although thankfully not into a combat situation this time.  Having him gone is never fun, but we try to make the best of it.  Mid way through the year we will DEFINITELY be moving back to Ohio, which I am super excited about, but dang it's gonna be tough moving midway across the country by my self.  But I'm going to give it everything I've got to try and make it as easy as possible. 

I have some doll goals as well... This year I would like to be able to purchase Rafe... Rafe is going to be Lena's love interest, Abbie's cousin and Hope's dad.  This is what I am thinking along the lines of his looks.

Rafe (short for Rafael) is Abbie's cousin and they share the family black hair and green eyes.  Rafe is 28 and a successful young architect. He often travels for business (what a great way to include him in my storyline before I have his physical form)

He is Hope's dad, but not really.  She is technically his niece, but his sister and her husband were killed in a car accident and Rafe was named as her guardian at his sister's request.  He adores Hope and truly loves her like his own.   (Yeah i know I really need to introduce Hope as well! LOL  Hmm I am thinking Biography Posts are in order for each of my characters.)

My current plan for Rafe is to purchase an Iplehouse Boris or Owen for him.  So my goal is to earn enough through my shop to be able to pay for him by June. Which of course brings me to my new shop posts!  I am going to try and list one item in my shop every day!  Today's listing is this gorgeous blue tee shirt

I love the way it turned out and will definitely be making more varieties!  *especially since I bought a HUGE tote of laces as Goodwill a couple weeks ago.  So I have lace in various colors and sizes coming out my ears! I think 2015 will be the year of the lace!

Thanks for bearing with me while I chatter.  Have a great day!
