Lilith is the shy one, but she is starting to come out of her shell.

Emmy works for Madame Josie Alton at the Arlington Annex bordello, 225 Basin Street. Emmy is just a room servant, she could never do what Mdme Josie's other girls do, though they do get paid better.

Loopy Scrooge

Yep, that's me the Scrooge. Ahhh the Christmas tunes are playing the inundation of Christmas commercials has begun and everyone is gearing up for the big ol holiday, Bah humbug!

I have never liked Christmas, well ever since I've been and adult anyway. Every year I get caught up in my house being spotless for company and feeling its never clean enough, buying the right gifts to only end up feeling its never enough, Christmas dinner that is usually burnt...the stress and angst builds as the holiday nears.

Well I have made a vow to myself this year. This will not be my holiday this year. I have decided that the house will be clean enough, the presents will be from my heart and they will be sufficient, whatever we sit down to eat that day will be delicious, even if it's burnt. I plan to enjoy my daughters smiles and excitement about the holiday, my husbands love, support and warming hugs and my family's visits.

If you have a problem with the holidays I hope that you too will choose to appreciate the season. This year it's going to take some work, I'm going to have to be very mindful but I'm hoping as the years go on it will become easier to create a holiday season that is a happy time and one that I will look forward to.

With this new attitude I've been working on more holiday ornaments. Yep the reds, greens and whites are out and you know's not so bad:)

The Boudior Girls

I've been having fun delving into the history of the Storyville brothels as this is going to be the backdrop for my next series of dolls.

I'd like to introduce you to Candy and Ruth. They both work for Madame Josie Alton, who owns one of the nicest bordellos down on Basin Street. Wealthy gentleman, politicians and men of high class visit Mdme Alton's often as she always has the prettiest and most well mannered girls. She calls them her nieces.

These dolls are a tad different that others I've done as they have jointed knees. I really love this as it makes the dolls even more animated. I might try the elbows next.

I'm working on some more of these dollies so stay tuned:)

Another Beautiful Day

Wherever you live I hope that is as beautiful there as it has been here in New Orleans. The cooler weather has been so uplifting for me I feel like a person renewed!

I think the change is apparent in the new little goth girls I've been working on. They are actually smiling:)

I've been meaning to share a few things with y'all. I've been so busy of late that it seems there is not enough time in a day for everything that needs to get done which I'm sure y'all understand.

First a bit of shameful promotion. Promotion of my work is absolutely the hardest part of my job. I hate doing it but alas it is a necessary evil. So with my head bowed I share with you a Loopy interview on the ADO blog.

Also I Twitter. Not much mind you, I find the site very confusing and frankly have a hard time following it. When I list new dolls I do provide links on Twitter almost immediately so if your interested in shop updates you might like to follow my tweets.

Last you can follow me on Facebook on the LoopyBoopy Fan page.

And just one more thing....if you would like to receive my newsletter which will include bi-monthly updates on what I've been working on and what you can look forward to seeing in my shop there is a link at the top left hand corner of my lil blog here that you can follow to do so.

Whew, I'm glad that is over:)

Christmas? It can't be

Alas the Halloween holiday is over. Boohoo. It was fun while it lasted. To be honest it was so incredibly crazy around here I can't say I'm not glad to be back to my regular routine.

Yes making dolls. So I've gotten out all of the red and green fabrics and laces, given some thought to some Christmas designs and these are the first of the season.

I'm quite sure I'll be burned outta Christmas by the first of December but for now it's rather fun working with the color scheme and the holiday themes.
