Yesterday, I received in the mail from Japan two sets of Sankei Paper
Kits. Both with the Studio Ghibli themed series, "Kiki's Deliver
Service", and "Ponyo". I started on "Kiki's House"
kit and it said it would take about 12 hrs and 10mins. to complete.
Boy, were they right. I began and had to stop, Yesterday, and did the
rest today to finish it!
My daughter and I worked on it. All these small pieces and eek! It was
hard, but I didn't realize it got harder later, with the truck, and tiny
table and chairs! I was able to finish today, and sadly, I found out I
forgot one of the windows, and broke one chair. The laser cute pieces
where good, but the really small parts, was just too hard to take out
with my tweezers and a pin-_-; Still, the house turned out amazing and I
truly enjoyed putting it together!

Day 02 Below:
Now, I'm gonna take a break before I work on the Ponyo kit...whew!
It's been raining hard and a lot more lately. The skies are overcast and
though it's great for taking photos, there's wet things everywhere.
Over the weekend I received some items thru the mail and for the first
time I forgot to document my latest package from YJA. Oh well, it was
very large box, but with only 3 items inside it! LOL!
I found a
larger retro plush dog and for real cheap. I was surprise that no one
else tried to get her. She's blonde and cute and so different from my
only other retro plushie. Here's a quick peek at her!
She still has her brush attached to her. I am not sure the maker, but
because of the good quality I am assuming she is made by Bandai. I will
try to take a better shot of her later on!
In the box I also got a
vintage snoopy Nakajima movie viewer cartridge. Sadly, this one does
not fit into my current movie viewer by bandai. Also, I've been wanting
those cute sailor dresses for Odeco. I was able to get one thru YJA for a
lot less than buying the whole doll! Now, if only I could get the
Baekdan in odeco sailor dress and socks. Shoes from World of Love
fashion set, and bag from Yes/No minny. I made the red ball ponytail
I decided to change the girls outfits up today! Heukdan looks better in
the mod geometric dress for Odeco, and Baekdan looks lovely in this teal
dress I had her in before. I just added a few more things to the
On Baekdan, I added a white belt, and tied her hair. On Heukdan, I
bought these cute red tights made for blythe by coolcat on ebay! and a
Then, I remember to look for this mini movie viewer I had
from the 90's. It plays one of my fave shows from back then called,
"Saba's Adventures of The Little Mermaid." So, I also took a pic of the
viewer and took video too! I love to document stuff, I'm such a nerd O.o
Below, my quote on flickr: I found this in my stash of tiny things,
and decided to take a pic. I think I bought it at a Toysrus store when I
lived in Ohio, back in 1994! I didn't realize that there was more than
one part of the movie to each colored viewer. I thought all were showing
off the same part...sadly, I only got this one-_-; a part 3! But it's
one of my fave parts, where she kisses the prince!
I've turned my focus onto my cute little dolls Heukdan and Baekdan. So,
this latest shipment from Japan had some items I found before buying
stuff for my Atomaru dolls! LOL!
I received a long time wish list item, this lovely vintage pose doll record! I saw it first from a friend's flickr stream.
Gretchen is the ultimate pose doll collector before posies got really
popular. I found out that my record is part 3, whereas her's, is a part
2 lovely fashion
coloring books, similar to another set I had one a few months ago. This
lot was unused, Yay!
Then, I can't forget to mention the lovely plaid
overlay with art work by Masako Watanabe. I've never seen them in plaid
and had to make sure I won it!! I also notice that the artwork was in
one of my older pencil cases with two girls! Sadly, I sold it long ago. Still amazing.
I also won a set of 12 Glico Kitahara collection first release. I
plan to keep some and some send off to a friend!
Today, we finally got a chance to get out to our family beach to do a
shoot with Heukdan and Baekdan! I've been wanting to do this since
Monday, but we've had such rainy weather the past few days it's been
crazy to even think of going out there. Our family beach is just down
the street from our home. So, with my two daughters in hand, we took a
stroll and while they sat and enjoyed the breeze and watched the waves, I
Well, not much going on. But I did get a lot of wee packages in the mail
today. I've been trying to find clothing that will fit my lovely aram
girls and finally a nice match for them! Clothing for Odeco-chan fits
nicely. I also found that Mattel tutti items, well some can fit them
too! So, here's what came in the mail!
My loot from YJA. I got a Candy Candy movie cartridge for my movie
maker. I've been wanting this cute "Kawaii Japan" culture book. I also,
like this lovely Nana chan case, but my daughters ended up wanting it
more than I did-_-; and a new addition to my mini posey, this blonde
one. Now, I have two cute mini posey friends!
Amazing Odeco-chan dress fits. Sadly, the tights do not. But still this is a nice fit for Heukdan! I love the style of the dress too!
I was able to video the movie as I cranked it. Now, you can see what I
see in the movie maker! Ugh, been having migraines lately...not fun at
all. Thanks for reading! - ggsdolls
