Happy Handmade Christmas, all!


Good morning! I think this photo says a lot about what I'm doing in these days ^_^ I love crafting and making handmade Christmas decorations/tags/cards etc, etc
Unfortunately, I'm always late with anything - too many ideas, so few time, my recurring problem! - and like all the past years, I spend the Christmas eve working more in a day than the in the whole December month!

Anyway, I started the day by making myself a special Christmas gift and I bought online this super-cute Jun-Planning doll - Dal series:


Isn't she simply adorable? She reminds me of Gretel from the popular tale by Brothers Grimm! Just a little bit more 'Gothic Lolita' looking alike! I'm a fan of little Pullips - I don't like too much the bigger ones, but the small dolls are so cute!...I'm afraid my new obsession will be the Dal dolls, now!

Ok, while wishing you all a wonderful Christmas, I'm posting this small acrylic on canvas I painted yesterday.

Happy Holidays!!!

  1. Wow, Gretel'S eyes are really pretty... Did you take the picture or is it the one from the store?

  2. Spero tu riesca a far fronte a tutte le tue idee a dispetto del tempo!!! :)
    Bella la dolls,è dolcissima rispetto ad altre che francamente trovo inquietanti.

    Complimenti per il dipinto sei a tuo agio con ogni tecnica!
    Ne approfitto per augurarti Buone feste!!!:)

  3. @ Uriel. Anche mia mamma sostiene che molte BJD siano inquietanti: per dirla tutta, lei trova inquietanti il 90% di quelle che possiedo ^_^ In realta', io credo che il loro fascino stia proprio in questo: non sono decisamente delle Barbies!
    Buone feste anche a te!

    @ Yanbo. The picture is from the Manufacturer's store.I bought mine on Ebay and since the seller lives in Japan I think I should wait a little bit to receive mine.
    Can't wait!
    Merry Christmas to you, too!

  4. Effettivamente evito accuratamente sin da bambina, :) una tipologia di bambole in particolare.
    Hai presente quelle di porcellana vecchio stile? trovo siano molto inquietanti,rispetto ad alcune più recenti che hanno una figura completamente diversa,per fortuna!!! :)
