Snapshot Sunday: Barbies on Parade


A group of Barbies I was photographing for our doll blog.

Today I’ve been busy taking doll photos and haven’t got out of the house to photograph anything new for this blog so I am going to do something that I rarely do and post a doll photo.

This was taken using the photo cube and lighting that I bought recently. The kit came with additional backgrounds so I used a dark blue one for this shot. I’m still experimenting with this set up but I think this one came out not too badly.

Snapshot Sunday – My Doll Room

I don’t usually post doll photos here as I have a doll blog for that but today I wanted to show how I spent my Sunday.  As I may have mentioned in the past I am a chronic furniture re-arranger and am always trying to find the perfect set up for each room. My dolls and craft materials live in a spare bedroom and I’m forever trying to find a way to get to my scrapbooking supplies, wool or whatever without having to move a dozen dolls. It would be so easy if I could have a room with custom-built storage and display areas but what I have is a mish-mash of old furniture that has been repurposed time and time again.

Today’s project was to move a large older style entertainment unit from where it was taking up space in the laundry into the doll room. I did this alone but with the help of one of those “Ezy Moves” fulcrum and pad sets and the moral support of Cindy who followed me round while I did it. As you can see by the mess on the craft table I’m not quite done yet but the worst of the job is done. If you would like to see an earlier incarnation of the doll room click here.
