Dolly Advent Calendar 2016 (Dec1-19)

Christmas is such a beautiful time of year in the doll universe. We get to dress up our vinyl divas like little princesses and display them around the house. These photos were created for each day in the month of December. I designed them simply to be beautiful with the aura of a greeting card. For those of you who are not yet on Instagram following along, I present the first 19 days of my second annual Dolly Advent Calendar. I will post the last 6 days on Christmas.

Is she really a witch? Or simply an extraordinary woman with unworldly powers!

She wears her beauty like a mask.
Turning inwards for answers. After all, she is a complex being with a multitude of sensitivities, layers of feelings and the courage to explore the multiplicity of her personality!
And even though she may look like a "witch" to others, she knows how to exploit and manipulate the weaknesses of her adversaries to her advantage. Is she a witch or simply diabolically clever?

She keeps to herself, deeply lost in thought. Does that make her a witch? No! She isn't casting a spell on anyone, she's simply remaining observant, planning her next move....looking at the pros and cons of any situation....deciding whether it's worth her time and effort....and love!
Does the "witch" in her scare you? It's not surprising. Behind that golden mask is a woman with a lion share of confidence, the courage and determination to deal with life but on her own terms !

She shield herself, taking the bad and the good in her stride in such a graceful way. At times, she has been called "a ruthless bitch".....but a witch?
No, in spite of all appearances, she is NOT a witch! She is simply....bewitched!!!

Color Revolution

In this era of black, where darkness seems to rule the street, let's have a color revolution. Bright, vibrant, bold colors that screams with delight, the virtues of joy, fun and creative new thoughts.
Let's shed our black clothing and lose ourselves in the colors of the rainbow.
 Let's live our lives as if it were a beautiful watercolor painting.....
 Borrowing from flowers in perfect harmony...
 To the point of becoming our own exotic flower.
Let's put back on our rose colored glasses and begin to dream again.....this time in Technicolor...
Putting ourselves in the garb of a far away land, but making it our own, let's celebrate color, pattern and print...

Heart to Heart

Pretty in pink. Divinely devilish in red.....once again, I pronounce my love.

Deep down, I always loved you from the shadows...
And then one day, I had the courage to announce my heartfelt feelings for you. It sent me prancing through the prairies in sheer delight!

I became, once again, a young school girl wearing her heart on her sleeve for all to see.
Oh, and this love is sweet and sticky. The more you eat, the more you want!

But sometimes it makes me so blue. Oh, the thought of losing you, I don't know what I'd do.

 Still, I bare my soul to you...

...feeling like a million dollars and I offer up my most precious love!

From me to you.....heart to heart....Je t'aime.....
