Did you know... you can change your BJDs hands (and feet!) without restringing? I've posted a short photo tutorial on how to do this with ease and without tears, frustration, or wine on Flickr.

Check out the entire tutorial here. I hope it helps!

I'll be adding stuff like this to my next book, A Little More BJDs for Beginners. My daughter Lauren, who is 10, suggested I need a pocket edition of my book, which I found quite interesting.

"Mom, don't you think people would want to take your book with them when they travel to conventions and stuff?" What a smart girl!

It's time to play the dolly shuffle!

I've recently come across two of my ultimate grail BJDs--tan Goldie and tan Wake-Up Goldie from the GoGa convention in 2009, I think. I've been able to purchase Goldie, and I have WU Goldie on lay-away. Help me pay her off even sooner by checking out my for-sale items on Den of Angels!

I have lots of great stuff for sale, including my Human Flowne hybrid for $300 (or just her head for $120).
