the better to see you with

I picked out some new eyechips for Nouvelle from brainworm. I'm pretty excited to get rid of the nasty pink and orange ones she came with. For now I think I'm going to get four colours: plum, wheat, apple and lime. I'd really like to foil them, too. The next steps are hair and makeup. I'm not too sure what to do with her hair... I am thinking of cutting the whole mess into a short bob. As for makeup, I left the factory colours on when I sandmatted, but now I'm rethinking that. I really can't stand those orangey-red lips! So once I get some paint supplies I think I'll sand them off and go either a darker red or medium pink. I'm still waiting for her clothes to come from etsy. But in the meantime, I did get some amazing lime green printed material yesterday at the thrift shop for another a-line dress.
Speaking of thrifting, I made out like a bandit in my shopping yesterday! I'll have to take some pics. Save that for Friday!

Since the Easter Bunny made an appearance yesterday, I guess we can safely say that spring is almost here. This winter has actually gone by quickly and painlessly, thanks mostly to being kept extremely busy with working and mom-type duties. But I'm still pretty excited for the warm weather and smell of living things.
I've finally clothed Nouvelle (my Blythe)! She was getting pretty pissed about standing around naked, so I sewed her a pretty pink dress. It actually turned out quite nice, despite my never having sewn anything more complicated than a pillow.
