Dolly Adoption room, and because she was such a natural for our camera, we decided to call her PIN-UP! There are lots of pics to look at---if you're so inclined, please take a look and let us know if you'd like to bring her home.
Some additional news....
*....we are busy finishing up January commissions and getting ready to start February dollies....January folks can expect to get some updates with photos soon (don't you love that word, soon!)....
*....Lizette arrives in our little home by the lake today; PRINCESS will choose the makeover details for one of them, while FROG gets to choose the look for the other. One will be up for auction, the other will be available in the Dolly Adoption room....in February? We hope so....
*....we have several Tonner dolls that are ready to go; we've been waiting to get our studio lamps set-up in order to get optimal pics....
*....regarding shipping! We are finally getting some smaller shipping boxes to fit our Monster High cartons, so hopefully this will save on both domestic and international shipping in the future. We've sent a few dolls to international destinations via First-Class mail, and they've arrived faster than both Express and Priority (go figure!).
*....we've had some requests for layaway options. Yes! If you'd like to purchase one of our dolls and need a payment plan, we'll be happy to do a short-term layaway for you....
That's all for today!

Since Mattel hasn't officially released this doll yet (I believe that date is, understandably, Valentine's Day), you can find her only on eBay for an arm and a piece of your heart---but rest assured that PRINCESS and I will get right to work on repainting her the moment she arrives in our little village here by the lake!

While PRINCESS continues to try convincing FROG to keep our dollies for at-home eye-candy purposes, we managed to put our first Abbey Bominable repaint on eBay in a five-day auction ending on Saturday at our usual time of 7:11pm PST.
You can view her---BEBE---here....

This precious girl is RUBY, formerly Essential Ellowyne, Too---brown-eyed and possessing simple but effective (as we like to say) beauty! We love her cascading copper curls (tied in a topknot and pinned) and especially her apple-red lips. She is wearing Tonner's Red Apple Rouge sweater dress ensemble. PRINCESS wanted to keep this dolly---but then, she is starting to want to keep all our repaints lately (ahem), and not just the Monster High ones.
Stay tuned for more commissioned dollies being shown off here, as well as a super-cool Abbey Bominable auction coming up (soon, very soon)....

WILLA is on eBay this evening (click here) in a five-day auction ending next Tuesday at the fantastically specific time of 7:11pm PST....

We want to thank our new clients who've adopted our dollies and those of you who enjoy looking at our creations here online. It's been a lot of fun for PRINCESS to enter the world of customized dolls (plus, she is the only girl in her school who has such an astronomical number of Monster High dolls shelved around the house). As for me, FROG, I have really enjoyed working on these girls again after these five years away from repainting. Since I am a painter of portraits these days, I have a greater appreciation of pretty faces than ever before.
If you missed the Facebook postings in December, we would like to announce that, yes---PRINCESS+FROG is accepting repaint commissions. We have two spots left for winter--one in February and one in March, so please do email if you would like to book a customized doll. You can read more about commissioned dolls here.
We will be having a Monster High repaint auction sometime this week....please stay tuned!
