I meant to blog sooner, except I hurt my back last weekend and taking pictures was not really possible. How did I hurt my back, you ask? Well, it had to do with dolls, of course!
The Story. So, a couple of friends have gifted me with Lalaloopsy dolls for Christmas. They were doubles of dolls I already had, which worked out to my advantage. Helen and I had been wanting to customize a Lalaloopsy for quite some time but we didn't want to experiment on what we had unless we had doubles. To make this long story short, I painted one of the dolls as soon as I could get my hands on a craft paint. She turned out better than expected and I excitedly decided to paint the other one when I got my hands on more craft paint.

I got extremely confident and ambitious the second time around and went for a full make-over, from the two-tone hair, different colored eyes and shiny blushy cheeks. I got paint-happy for sure! You can tell my excitement from the unwanted paint that went past her bangs and left eye. I still think she turned out nicely though. I would like to eventually cover her cheek heart tattoo with a gemstone or something.

So, how did I get my back pain....Well, for one, I was doing all this customizing, sitting on the floor. Bad bad me! I guess I was so engrossed in painting. I was sitting on the same crouched position for so long that I didn't even notice. When I got up....there it was! A stabbing pain on my side that has lasted for days. It's still there actually, just not as painful now.

The things I do for my dolls....Must remember not to get too excited about things....
For the curious artiste in you, I used Martha Stewart Crafts multi-surfaced acrylic craft paint, bought at Michael's Art and Craft store. They come in a variety of pretty colors and dries quickly.
A big thank you goes to 'Saraiah', 'Rajiji' and 'Cupcake Gonzalez' for these dollies! Madame Cupcake, I was going to name the second doll after you but Helen wouldn't let me! Hahahahahaha!!!!!
