My How Time Flies By!

2017 zipped by super quickly. I'm still in denial that it will soon be 2018! LOL

 Here are my best nine photos via Instagram for 2017. Thank you all so much for the likes and for just reading my posts. I truly appreciate you all for loving ggsdolls. It means a lot to me. Si Yu'us Ma'ase/ Thank you very much, in Chamorro, and from the bottom of my heart.

Okay, before I start crying... LOL I had this lovely retro Raglans in Unisex size XL made with my vintage unicorn love creation on it. I listed it via my etsy shop Yesterday and it sold this morning! So truly happy with that. I hope to make more and in other sizes too! More on this later...
 I fell in love with the quality and feel of this baseball tee. So soft and very comfortable. I'm hoping to do my other designs later and more. So stay tuned!

I bought another vintage Shiba Co. Francine mint in package, mostly because of the blouse she is wearing. Little did I realize, thanks to Thanos on IG, he reminded me that it was Kamar's doll dress. I was wondering why her top drew me!? Ha. Yup, I know that for many of the dolls that Shiba Co. created back in the 60s and 70s, they were mixed and matched with other dolls. Basically, sometimes you can find some dolls sold by a sister company or mixed in with dime store sold toys and dolls in Japan around the same time frame.

 I took her out of package and decided to try my hand at re-rooting. I want to change the color of her hair and the style.
 I started to use mohair from my needle felt stash. It looked interesting, but maybe not for doll hair. Some strands kept coming out. I decided this type of mohair won't work. So, I'm waiting for saran hair to come in the mail. More on this later...

I posted a few of these items through IG, they are available for sale. Just email me if you are interested!

 Pre-owned and used, but still lovely!

 My fave Santa by Kamar, ready for Christmas too! Are you?

Thank you for visiting! ~ ggsdolls
