Sheeny, shiny and everything sparkly

The gals dropped by for a fitting session
Hi guys! I missed you! After spending three weeks with my mom to accompany her in laboratory and follow-up check-ups (which all went well and she is negative from all harmful things, thank goodness), I'm back again to our doll universe!

Mama's smile is priceless =)
This week I spent my days making stuff that are yes, sheeny - shiny - sparkly. It has always been my dream to dress my gals in fancier things during the holiday season because it reminds me of the excitement, of all the wonderful childhood memories - putting up the Christmas tree, wrapping gifts, dressing up, going to parties, going to midnight mass on Christmas and New Year's eve with the family, opening gifts and candy socks, believing about Santa until I'm 12 (LOL!), and on Christmas day, going to our godparents to collect our gifts. I could go on and on about these, while I type and smile at the same time, but I may not finish the post so, let's continue with my dream holiday photoshoot.

Like I said, I have always wanted to dress my girls in not-so-typical atelierniSHASHA fashion for the holidays. And I want ALL of them to star in that photoshoot. But I realized I cannot accommodate everyone new dresses, so I'm CLEVERLY picking those who are not too busy for a fitting session. Some are already on holiday vacation abroad anyways so I guess I could make an excuse of just making a few dresses, for now, right? =P

I still have a couple of days to make maybe two to three more of those holiday dresses but I'm crossing fingers as Monday, I will start working on the diorama setup (between preparing everything for our two-week vacation over at the 'rents both my hubs' and mine for the holidays).

So, I'm calling all the positivity gods and goddesses to hear me out and make my dream come true hehe - and from you, too, dear dolly friends. Wish me luck and chat with you soon!

hugs and kisses from the Philippine islands,

    I enjoyed reading your Christmas reminiscence.

    Your sheeny, shiny, sparkly fashions are lovely. I especially like Anouk's off-shoulder peasant jumpsuit and would love to see a full view.

    Hope you are able to accomplish your goals.

    1. Thank you so much, Debbie... Mama's relief probably reflected in her smile.
      Yes, indeed it's so nice to reminisce those childhood memories :)

      Don't worry, I'll make sure the jumpsuit gets a highlight in the photoshoot, because honestly speaking it is my favorite in the bunch so far =) Perhaps, Anouk is modeling is so well, too thus, the added pizzazz to it!

      Thanks for the well wishes, Debbie... I'm wishing all the wonderful memories come back to you during the holiday season as well =) Hugs!

    1. Oh, Vanessa - thank so much, dear... My mom would be so happy to hear all this kind words from you guys!

      Yey, another fan of the off-shoulder jumpsuit! Seems like I've done the right thing to this fabric, which has waited long, and that I've picked the right model, it seems!

      Thanks again, Vanessa!
