OMG, I've totally forgotten what I'd wanted to write...LOL

πŸ’‹ A new Journey - Part 2

I've grown so fond of these little girls which has brought me on to a new journey of creating my own collection of custom Blythe dolls.  

A while back, I got myself this little sweetie.  I chose her for her gorgeous long brown hair and pretty face.

It was very daunting at first after the sanding, I must say, it took me a while to gather up my courage to start carving.   Here is my progress so far...


still lots of sanding and smoothing here but I think I'm pretty happy with her shape.  Totally different to what I had tried to do but it will have to do.  I'm afraid I might over do it and my girl will have no face at all..

Now this is where my "box of candy" comes out for a worthy piece of work ( I hope! ).


Below: Spoilt for colours, her face and brows are done. 


ta da!  I haven't quite gotten round to creating my eye chips for her yet but I found these beautiful eye chips from the lovely Ana of BlytheEvolution, you can check out her shop here: https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/BlytheEvolution?ref=hp_rv


I need to get some Tamiya gloss paint for her lips, make some nice pull strings and then I can put her together.  I'm pretty happy with my first attempt. 😊

EEEEEEeeeeeee...can't contain my excitement!! Can't wait to have my own FIRST little non-furry girl! πŸ’‹

Thank you to all Blythe artists for your tips and tutorials on how to customise Blythes, I need all the help I can get and your expertise advice really helped! Looking forward to join your dolly world!

πŸ’‹ A new Journey - Part 1

Once upon a time, a very long time ago, there was a little girl who loved to draw. She loved her colour pencils, colouring and making paper dolls to play.  As she grew, her studies became more important, so she traded in her little box of pencils for text books instead.

Many many years later, this little girl grew up and went to work in the UK.  
On her travels, she visited the "Cumberland Pencil Museum".  It was like visiting a candy shop for her and she was once again a little girl...
  

In the Museum, she came across this wonderful box...she wasn't sure if she'll ever use it as it's been an awfully long time since she last put pencil to paper but nevertheless, not getting it was like walking out of a candy store without a candy!


..so here I am with my box of CANDY!! 😝


It did take a while before this box of water colour pencils was put to a good use.  This was tucked away in my cupboard, still sealed in it's original box since it arrived from the UK.  I have coloured and drawn since however, nothing I did was worthy of breaking open this box until now..


I knew these had a purpose!

⏳TICK TOCK TICKADY TOCK? πŸ—πŸŽˆ

As soon as I said her name to Daniel "TICKADY", we both said "YEAH" at the same time! ..and so please meet my latest bunny TICKADY!


I'm having so much fun with the Alice in Wonderland Theme,  it's all so colourful, wacky and DELICIOUS!  Just makes me really really happy.  I hope it does you too! 😊


TICKADY is a new design, though she has Tipady's features, this bunny has longer legs and shorter ears.  TICKADY wears a lovely soft light brown sparse mohair with a white muzzle.  She has pink bunny nose and a red mouth.  Her inner ears are pink.   I've used sassy mohair which is lovely and soft.  I've also given her big pink rosey cheeks.





Dressing her up was definitely one of the funnest part for me.  I had so much fun making TICKADY'S dress.  I've kept it to a pillowcase dress as part of the JennyLovesBenny signature outfit for my bears but I've added a bit of the "Alice" touch!  She comes with her gorgeous head piece created by the lovely Yuri from HakoniwaDolls.

TICKADY is now ready for adoption, for details, please hope on over to my Etsy shop at: https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/386275988/artist-bear-tickady-rabbit-by-bear?ref=shop_home_active_1

πŸ“¦ FREE SHIPPING: TICKADY WILL BE SENT VIA PRIORITY AIRMAIL WITH TRACKING!!

Thank you always for stopping by and I hope you're enjoying your long weekend.

😘😘

Have you gone mad yet? ⏳πŸ—πŸŽ€

TICK TOCK! TICK TOCK! What a buzz "Alice Through the Looking Glass" is creating!!  It certainly is in this household!  I've even taken out all my cups and saucers which I've collected over the years, gave them a good clean since they've been locked away for goodness how long.  We're getting ready for a JennyLovesBenny Tea party just because we're all going mad!! LOL


Despite going mad, I have been working on a new Bunny as mentioned in my last post.  Inspired by the Alice theme, she's a new design and here is a little sneak peek of my work in progress.  I can't wait to put her all together and dress her up!  Fingers crossed I will have her finished in the next couple of days... 


If you are in the UK at the moment ( Luck you! ), you must head to Fortnum and Mason.  They've decked out the store with looking glasses, butterflies, roses, teapots, Alice, the whole works!! What a treat!! eeeeeeeee!  Remember to take plenty of photos in your state of awe! πŸ˜†

Wallpaper for your PCs anyone?

Hi All,

You've probably noticed I've been extremely time poor these past few years that I've totally neglected the JLB monthly Wallpaper for you.  In truth, I wasn't sure if many or anyone was using it also until I saw this... πŸ€—

What a delightful surprise it was for me when one of you lovelies sent me a photo of your PC at work even though we are waaaaaay past December.   Apparently it was a bit of a stress relief at work and it makes her smile! That to me was just precious and so I decided to continue doing my JLB calendar wallpapers, even if it makes a small different to someone out there. I hope it helps to brighten your day, even if it's just a little. πŸ™‚

Being the first of the month today,  I figure what better time to start so tonight, I created this calendar wallpaper.  It's one of my favourite pics taken with my Jenny Bear at the Lavendula Farm in Daylesford. It includes the months of June, July and August but will change it as often as time permits, promise!  I hope you like it. 



Just click on the photo and download.

Hugs,
Jenny

πŸ’ my little helper πŸ’

Good Morning Everyone!!!  

I have a little helper with me today!! πŸ˜€
Daniel has come down with a cold and will be staying home with me, hopefully just for the day.  Our aim is to get him all good and well before the weekend so that he can go to his friend's Super Hero Birthday Party. πŸŽ‰πŸŽ We can't miss that...he's going to be Spider Man! πŸ•·πŸ•Έ

It was nice and bright despite the heavy rain this morning so I quickly took the opportunity to take some photos of my new Jenny Bear.  As you can see, just like my Walter before, Daniel can't help himself and wants to be in all the photos...

Daniel: "Awww...she's soooo cute!" 














.
With Daniel's help, we put this combination of colours together.  I must say, I like my boy's style! LOL

This Jenny Bear has just been spoken for but I thought I'll still share these photos with you.  I hope you like this look Daniel and I put together.  I've recruited him to be part of my design and creations team! πŸ˜‚ Although, he's always a little sad when they go to their new homes and always gives them a hug Good-Bye....sigh, just LOVE this boy to bits!

Hope you have a beautiful day, it's scaringly windy here but it's going to be an awesome day! I get to spend the whole day with my boy. 😊

Hugs,
Jenny

☔️ love it when it rains...🌧

I always keep busy at the JLB studio...especially when it's a rainy day!
so what have I been doing I hear you ask...?

After re-arranging my work space, I started on my new Jenny Bear.  Not quite there yet but it's still in the sewing stage.  At the same time, I've been working on a new JennyLovesBenny website...yes you read it right...it's a brand new spanking new website!! I figured it was time for an upgrade! whoo hoo..

...and that's not all, I've also started customizing my own Blythe!! Yeeha! Am so excited though I've already cut myself with the xacto knife before I've even began but all is good, finger's still intact! πŸ‘†πŸ»

...and there's more! LOL 
You've probably noticed my Etsy shop has been given a little facelift?  I've listed ALL my pattern in the shop and also added the BASIC kit to it too.  The Basic kit is the same price for all patterns, just let me know which bear you want to make. πŸ˜€

Until I get any one of the above tasks finished, here is my Etsy shop special which I hope you will enjoy and will help keep you busy for the looming cold Winter days to come ~ Purchase any 10 e-patterns for $100 and Save $60!
