Barbie Gets A Tim Gun Makeover

Hey out there in doll land. If you are on Facebook, this might be old news to you, but I thought I would share it with you anyway. Barbiecollector.com and Target will be offering 2 Barbie dolls with a Tim Gun makeover plus 2 accessory paks around August lst. Both dolls will be able to switch out pieces from the fashions they come in and the accessory paks to get quite a number of different fashion looks. I can think of several that aren't presented in the below pictures. I'm finding that I'm excited about this news, and I'm looking forward to seeing the dolls and accessory paks in Target...hopefully very soon. July is almost over, and August lst is just around the corner.

It's my understanding from the article I read, that the lst 2 pictures are of the actual doll wearing the fashions they will come in for purchase. The below 2 pictures of the dolls wearing the items that will be offered in accessory paks. The dolls and accessory paks are in the $25.00-$30.00 range according to what was stated.

Here is the link to the article that I read all about this dolls wearing these gorgeous Tim Gun fashions and accessories. http://news.instyle.com/2012/07/26/barbie-tim-gunn-collection-photos/

I hope you enjoyed reading about this wonderful news. Thanks for visiting my blog today, and I hope you leave a comment letting me know what you think about this news.

A Fun Barbie Swap Creation

July sure has been flying by, and it's getting away from me. I can't believe that this month is almost half over. Where oh where does the time go?

Today I thought I would share a couple of pictures from a Barbie swap that I participated in a few years ago. Doll swaps can be a lot of fun, and I love being able to create something for someone
else that is Barbie related.

In this first picture, you will see one of my own reproduction TNT Barbie dolls modeling a mod era
fashion I made for my swap partner. I just love the fabric. It has tiny bees all over it and is a perfect fashion for spring and summer. There are other items that I included in the swap for my dollie swap
partner. The ottoman was a foam square that I covered with a neutral fabric. I also painted 4 wooden balls and glued them on for feet. The small table was originally blue, and I spray painted it that great color that is one of my favorites to use for spray painting. That cute tea set came with the blue table that I spray painted. Also...the tiered goodie tray was a different color that I spray painted black.


Here's another view of the swap items. The items that my swap partner received
was the mod dress, the ottoman, the table, the 2 tiered goodie tray with goodies, and
the tea set. I decided to call my swap "Honey Bee Tea." lol Anyone care to have a cup
of tea and a sweet goodie? :+)

Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog. I so enjoy reading comments, so please feel free to leave one for me.

Keep playing with your dolls and creating pretty things.
