Bonjour, mes amis! Ellowyne Wilde here. It’s been a long time, n’est ce pas? I thought I would chime in today with an update on Laurie’s dolly adventures—oh, wait. Sorry, my bad. There haven’t been any adventures. Why’s that, you ask? Because she was too busy trying to perfect her Christmas story this past winter and… Continue reading A Sad Day for Ellowyne Wilde
I’ve been doing a lot of research and menial rewriting over the last couple of months. Researching agents, tweaking the first 10-50 pages of my manuscript, writing query letters, tweaking query letters, more researching… I hadn’t had much time left over for actual writing—you know, the kind that gets a writer’s butt into the chair… Continue reading When words fail…use your hands!
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!

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

Yours Truly is now officially in charge of all future Doll Drama posts. Eeee! Today, I’d like to highlight one of Laurie’s latest projects: an American… Continue reading Time to…Play?
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…
It began sometime after I received my fifth or sixth Wilde Imagination doll: The inspiration to create a backdrop for them. Thanks to my mom, I already had a wardrobe and chairs to start the scene and I had painted and stenciled an unfinished bureau from a nearby craft store, as well as stained a… Continue reading Dolls on Parade
