Bonjour, mes amis! C'est moi, Ellowyne Wilde, back for another post now that spring break is over--for Laurie’s daughters are once again at school and quiet reigns here at the house. While February and March teased Montanans with unusually mild temperatures, April seems to have decided at least one month must come in like a lion and it… Continue reading A Taste of Spring

Bonjour, tout le monde! Ellowyne Wilde here with another dolly update. It almost didn’t happen this week, I’ll have you know. Laurie has been hogging the laptop in an attempt to finish the first draft of her Christmas novel (apparently the rest of the Christmas décor around here isn’t coming down until she’s accomplished that!)—but… Continue reading Crafty Cushion
It’s Christmastime in Ello-land…
Merry Christmas! Ellowyne Wilde here. So excited about the upcoming holidays! We’ve been busy decorating, wrapping presents, coiffing for parties, and anticipating the arrival of a new friend: Urban Legend Lizette! Last week, we enfolded her into our family with as much enthusiasm as a pack of moody dolls can muster and Lizette wasted no time jumping… Continue reading It’s Christmastime in Ello-land…
Finally…A Front Porch!
Before I hand things over to Ellowyne, I just want to thank the Lord for helping me complete this project that’s been two years in the making. I’ve prayed over this porch every step of the way—from prayers that I wouldn’t fudge on the detailed painting to prayers that I would make the correct cuts… Continue reading Finally…A Front Porch!
Hello, everyone! Ellowyne Wilde here. I’m back (finally!) with a quick update on how Laurie is coming along on my front porch. She’s allowed me to reveal a few snippets, assuring me she will have the whole thing completed by the end of September. Okay, so she didn’t promise. I believe the word she used… Continue reading A Teaser

Let Your Light Shine
Here’s a simple tutorial for making an inexpensive, non-working lamp for your fashion doll. You will need: - two 3” wooden craft candle sticks - a votive holder - some fabric (pre-cut quarters work great) - stain or paint of your choice - heavy-duty glue (my favorite go-to glue is Loctite Power Grab that holds… Continue reading Let Your Light Shine
Ladders and Railings and–oh, MY!
Hello! Ellowyne Wilde here. Laurie has graciously allowed me to write another post— ~She twisted my arm.~ I am a doll. The only arms I’m twisting are my own ball-jointed ones! ~(She twisted my arm.)~ Anyway…my bedroom is now one step closer to completion, for Laurie finished making the ladder and railings for the loft area!… Continue reading Ladders and Railings and–oh, MY!
After much thought (and the folding of one’s hands beneath a hard plastic chin combined with puppy dog eyes (really, I didn’t stand a chance with eyes like hers!)), I have decided to let Ellowyne have the floor on this post. So, without further— Thank you, Laurie! I think they get the point. Hello, everyone!… Continue reading Sew Satisfying…
Just a Little Spritz Here…And a Little Dab There…
Ellowyne has been in a mood these last few days (she claims she hasn’t received much “screen” time since I started this blog), so I thought I’d use this post to highlight two of her favorite things in her bedroom…and appease her ego at the same time. In the picture to the left, in which… Continue reading Just a Little Spritz Here…And a Little Dab There…
