What We Did in 2015

I made a little slideshow video showing all the adventures the Little Cupboard gang got up to in 2015 and thought you all might like to see it. I will probably do them every year now. I didn’t get to take as many photos as I normally would last year due to my illness, but in making this I was able to see that actually, we did accomplish a lot after all despite it 🙂

Christmas Portraits – Part 1

I took photos of all the dolls by the Christmas tree for some nice festive portraits. The lighting wasn’t great so they are a little grainy but they will have to do!

In these photos you will find the smaller dolls and the pets 🙂

Catching Up

I have been finding it difficult to take photos and post things recently as I am having a difficult time with my illness and have lost the use of my right arm and hand at the moment and as its my dominant side, its very difficult for me to try and do everything with one hand and the wrong hand at that! My Dad helped me take a few photos lately though which are on my Flickr and my Instagram but I thought I’d do a quick update and post them here too.

Firstly, a new doll arrived! I already had a Littlefee Piki in natural skin whom I got secondhand a couple of years ago and he was already a couple of years old before I got him. Couple that with me taking him out a lot, he had therefore been getting really yellow and so I decided I would “replace” him and buy him again brand new so that I could also get his sleeping face. However, I took a bit of a risk and ordered him in tan. The gamble paid off and despite his darker skin tone, he is still very much the same character he was before and I am over the moon 🙂

Some other new little dolls that arrived recently are mini versions of the Disney Animator Toddler dolls. I got a few from the big collector’s set in a group split with some friends and I absolutely adore them. They are a much nicer size than the huge ones because they are easier to photograph and their legs bend which adds a few more posing opportunities for photos. I got Kristoff, Anna, Elsa, Aurora and Merida. Kristoff and Aurora are my favourites so here are a couple of photos of them helping me get the dresser ready for Christmas 🙂 Oh, and by the way, they fit into Pukipuki size clothes 😉

Because I have been feeling so down, I have started properly decorating the doll dresser for Christmas because it makes me happy so why the heck not? Plus, with one hand/arm, its taking a lot longer than usual so its best to start early 😉 My princess Tabby has been helping.

Finally, my boys have all been having a nice time playing with their new toys lately. Asa and Edward got some new Star Wars toys and are getting very excited about the new movie coming out in December; and Brave got some toys from The Good Dinosaur and he and his puppy Arlo are very excited when that opens on Friday! Thats all for now folks. I have a new project I am working on so hopefully I’ll have some things to add from that soon as and when I am well enough 🙂
