Gone fishing?

I’m not the most organized person in the world. Ok, to be honest, I’m a mess. I have my supplies for customizing Blythe dolls all over the place.

I have art supplies in one box and drawing supplies in another. I’m lucky if I can find the color pencils or paintbrushes that are closest to me when I need them!

Many compartments

The Flambeau Tacklebox is an economical way for you to keep track of all your different items. This item is perfect for people with are organizationally challenged because you can fit almost everything in one place and all the different compartments help you sort it all.

* They are made of high-quality, durable materials that will last through the years.

* The plastic boxes come in a variety of sizes and configurations to suit your needs.

For some reason, when you look for products that are specifically labeled for art organization and supplies, they tend to be on the pricey side. When I was taking art classes in college, a lot of the students were carrying their Artbins. For starving students, they are pretty expensive.

Recently, I was looking to finally make sense of my scattered art supplies. I have things stored in different containers and with making my Blythe custom dolls, I was always searching around for them.

Tackleboxes to the rescue! These quality storage containers provide an affordable solution for containing all types of paintbrushes, carving tools, sanding sponges, and pretty much anything else you would put in a similarly configured Artbin but at a third of the price.

All in one place!

What’s more, these tackle boxes are very sturdy. Considering the fact that they’re meant to be taken by the water to go fishing, they have to be.

Sorry, Artbin. You’re overpriced!

Blythe Custom Doll Cass|SCoLaDolls

Another Sassy Cassy!

Cass Custom Blythe Doll
Sassy Cassy!

Those grumpy girls get me every time. My last one May really made me smitten with her attitude. Let’s face it. We don’t always get what we want being nice!

Cass is another one that has high expectations…

Blythe custom doll
What is she thinking?

I named her after Cass Elliot who is best known for the Mamas and the Papas. I re-visited VH1’s Behind the Music the other day. It has been many years since I first watched it. As a teenager, I got into everything ’60s. I thought it was the coolest decade ever and I was just barely born right at the end of it.

Go where you wanna go

I even had one of their albums. Cass was a charismatic force with a memorable voice. Her heart was broken by her bandmate, Denny Doherty whom she was in love with. His eyes were instead on Michelle Phillips who was married to John Phillips. Love triangles ensued and yet somehow, they soldiered on and recorded their first album.

Sad Eyes

But alas, this Cass will never have to experience that kind of heartache. She is just looking for her new crashpad and is available in my shop.

She’s had the usual work done with extensive carving and her mouth is slightly open so you can see her teeth.

Cass is ready!

I love her chestnut hair and the texture is perfect!

Thanks for checking her out and until then have a Happy Doll Day!


Another Blythe Custom Doll|Introducing May

My latest Blythe custom NBL doll

Say hello to May! My latest Blythe custom. Isn’t she sweet? Oh she doesn’t quite look sweet. Maybe a bit on the feisty side.

Little Miss Thang!

Out of all the non-Takara Blythe doll “fakes”, I like NBLs the best. They remind me of Takara’s FBL mold but are a little different. I’d say they’re a cross between FBL and RBL Blythe doll face mold.

NBL face-plate

Best of all, they’re very inexpensive. FBL molds are very popular, more sought after and just not enough of them were made. I’m not sure what happened to them but I love them as Blythe custom dolls.

The best part about customizing Blythe dolls…

She’s a bit high maintenance. I think of her as an heiress to some high fortune. This is what is so fun when it comes to customizing Blythe dolls. These dolls emerge with their own character and personality. How is it possible that these inanimate objects can do that?

May Blythe Custom Doll
That look!

With Blythe customizing, that is the magic of it. While April was my cheerful girl, May is not having it! Did she wake up on the wrong side of the bed? I don’t know but she’ll let you know what she thinks on just about anything!

Shampoo Model…

Gorgeous hair
Luxurious Hair

I really love the hair on these NBL Blythe dolls. One of the things that I found frustrating with the Takara Blythe dolls is that sometimes you got horrible hair out of the box and it needed to be washed and boil-permed. For someone that just collects the stock Blythe dolls, that is especially problematic. Not everyone has the skill or interest in fixing bad hair due to poor quality control. Especially considering the fact that these dolls cost $150 or more.

On the other hand, the hair on these NBL Blythes is really nice. This girl could be a shampoo model!

Buzzy May

Thank you for letting me introduce you to Miss May. She has already found a new home but feel free to follow me on Instagram and Etsy for new big-eyed Blythe custom dolls.

Until then, have a Happy Doll Day!

She’s buzzing away!
