Luckiest bjd collector!

This week I have been a very lucky BJD collector and received two (yes two!!!) of my top of the wish list dolls! A big Thank you to the two lovely people that made it possible, you know who you are ;).

Firstly Ixtee Mui chan Arrived last helpful posty dropped her off at work as he knows I work on a Saturday. the Idea of the box in my locker tortured me all day and then when I got home the in-laws were visiting and so it was 10pm before I could unwrap and play.

Mui chan, henceforth known as a similar size to Lati Yellow although she is a bit skinnier and she has changeable face plates; happy, sleeping and blowing kisses. and she has magnetic hands and feet and some cool boots that pop on with the magnets. Joy also came in a wooden russian doll style carrycase and some very cute clothes.

Then today Lati WSP Magician/Mystic Bayer arrived, she is a dreamy girl with half closed eyes and she is really beautiful! She has really a distictive face up, in green and yellow that I quite like IRL but I reserve the right to have her professionally faceupped at some point ;) She came with a lovely wig and outfit too.

Mimisstuff Update

Mimisstuff Terms And Conditions
I did say a while back that I would announce on here when I was accepting commissions, well I didn't get around to formally announcing it but have been taking them from those of you who have asked. Also I get a bit overwhelmed by answering all those messages and I was a little bit worried about that. Don't think I don't want to talk to you, I love getting to know dolly people and their dolls. Maybe you could spread it out a little (hehe). I apologise to anyone who has missed out.

So, I have thought I would answer some of the typical questions, about how I work, so if it doesn't suit, you already know.
I will make each item/outfit by hand and to order, they take me a while to make as I put a lot of detail into each. Also I do currently have a waiting list, this is a "how long is a piece of string" list because it depends on how much real life stuff invades into my sewing time.
I like to have an idea about what you fancy rather than a "can you make something exactly like the blue one" as I have only small amounts of each fabric and attention span for manufacturing the same thing over and over. So a loose brief telling me the colours you (or your dolls!) like and an idea of style. You could have a peek at Flickr; or

The prices are as follows;
MJ shoes....$12
Dress and knickers....$20
Full outfit including dress/top, leggings, hat/waistcoat, footwear.....$50

All prices include standard shipping, if you prefer insured and tracked shipping please add $6 per order. If you choose the standard method then I cannot be held responsible for any lost after your item has left me (I always get proof of posting so can say that I have definately posted). I am just officially covering myself here, but in practise, both times that this has happened to me I have just made a replacement order.

So how it works is; I put you on the list,preferably with a loose brief and then when I get to your name, I will get in touch to see whether you still want me to make something for you. I will make stuff for you and then send you a picture for your approval. If you like then you can pay me using Paypal at and I will post out as soon as I can. I would love it if you could let me know when you have received your item and I would also love to see pictures of your dolls in Mimisstuff on the Mimis Stuff Flickr stream.

And finally I would like to thank each and every one of you that has ordered Mimisstuff, I truly appreciate your custom and friendship. It often amazes me that I can make with my fingers stuff that people like and it does also mean that I can participate in a hobby that would be out of my league otherwise. So, best wishes to you all, Miriam xx

Laches and Lily

I neglected to tell you that they had arrived, struggling for names for them. Lily had a makeover and Laches turns out to be a girl.

Lumi is Scarlett!

Look whos here to stay!

Kayjay and I did a craft fair on Saturday, K made pegbags, flower brooches and knitting bags and I did jewellery, pictures and bags. There was also some bracelets by Angus, some Jam from Ian and some cards from my Mum. It was an enjoyable day though not terribly busy, we both sold some bits and pieces, for me mostly jewellery.

Whilst at K's I collect Lumi who we had previously agreed to trade. She is beautiful and I am enjoying her very much.

Ok Back to Normal News!

I have found myself a Lati White SP Laches, one of the first tinies that I fell for, he is coming from Spain so no customs (yay)

So if I ever find a Cherny that floats my boat then my collection of LWSP will be complete.

here is the owner pic;

Non Dolly Post

On Saturday K and I went to see the exhibit of Ron Mueck sculptures at Manchester Art Gallery. There were 3 pieces and they are AMAZING, hyper real human portraits with silicone skin and rooted hair. Even though they are not in human scale it would not have surprized me at all, if they would have got up and adjusted their positions!

My favourite here is "Spooning Couple", my feelings changed with the perspective, from the top they looked incredibly peaceful and sleeping and I almost felt as I was intruding on an intimate moment. Then studying the faces from the foot end one could see that they were both awake and although very close together were having complex private thoughts and not alltogether happy ones. Sadly one could not touch the figures (for obvious reasons!) as they were very tactile looking (!).
Well worth a visit!

Jasmines new outfit

Here is a set I made for Jasmine a few weeks ago. It is made from a pair of posh Knickers from Monsoon where I work. they were made from two different fabrics and lined in plain blue so I was able to use all parts of the item.

This one is a onw off and a keeper and Jasmine is quite adamant about that! hehe

Happy Valentines!

Here is my new girl Annalise, she is a PukiFee Ante and I got her from the lovely Sharon in Spain;

Also 2 exquisite outfits; #1 crochet outfit from JoeyKBlythe and a pretty dress by Willows Wardrobe (Both available on Etsy) both do beautiful work.
