Back from hiatus!

Whew! What a month!

We found out at the start of April that we will be moving back to Winnipeg and have been in a whirlwind of chaos ever since. I think we finally found a place to live (always a good thing), and we're getting pretty close to having our house ready to sell. I can't believe I'm going to leave my beautiful old house. The one we're moving to is very nice, modern and a lot smaller. We'll be renting, so we have to find new homes for our pets though... there's been lots of tears over that.

But I think Olive (our dog) would be much happier on a farm, and hopefully we've found someone wonderful who's willing to take her. And the cats... well... I'll just keep hoping something turns up for them.

In the mean time, I did repaint Nouvelle's lips. I did them freehand, no template or anything. That was extremely challenging! I went with a dark wine shade. I like the shape but I'm still unsure about the colour. I wouldn't mind going a little goth with her, so I'll leave it for now and see how she looks once I (finally) order her new eyechips.

Also, I have a new Blythe! I bought an AE a few weeks ago, but I haven't had much time to get to know her. She's not even named yet! I'm thinking maybe Syrie? I was super disappointed when I got her... she looks so anemic and her hair was an awful frizzy mess. I gave her a nice shampoo and a deluxe fabric softener conditioning treatment, and after LOTS of tlc I got her curls soft and luxurious. Once that was taken care of, I started to remember why I fell in love with the AEs in the first place. She's still shiny, and her chalky lip colour has got to go, but I'm very excited about the possibilities. I haven't downloaded her pics off my camera yet, but will post some soon.

I'd love to see the new lips!

I hope you will be able to make a nice home in Winnipeg!
