What Has MaceyLou Been Up To?

Hello My Lovely Friends!

I just want to take a moment and thank each and every person who reads my blog, watches my videos, listens to my music, or appreciates my artwork. THANK YOU! ^_^ From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU SO MUCH! If you’re reading this right now, you mean a lot to me, and I want you to know that. Because of you, I get to write my heart out. I get to talk about the good times as well as the bad, and there is nothing that can replace that. No matter how long I go on hiatus and no matter what my URL is, the core group sticks with me on my journey. Hopefully this blog theme / template I’ve chosen will stick for a while. Hopefully my URL will finally stick for a while. I’ve gone from blogspot, to wordpress hosted, to self-hosted using wordpress…and I’ve changed URL’s even more times than that. In fact, I can’t recall how many times. I’m hoping this sticks……finally. Haha!

For the theme of this blog post, I want to talk about what I’ve been up to lately…I’ve been working on many things. First, I’ve finally gotten re-acquainted with Minecraft, and I’m loving it again. I doubt I could play it each and every day, but I’ve been playing several times a week, and it helps that I have lots of friends to play with me and help me find new ways to have fun in the game.

I play pranks…

In the screenshots above, I basically just confused everyone by flying as high as I could where they couldn’t see me. I got a chuckle out of it, as I looked down at their base like it was but a mere ant hill. Karma came back at me later, though, when someone released an Ender Dragon into the world, which destroyed my house. Lately we’ve been playing on a really fun survival server instead, which I LOVE. We found a beautiful biome, full of flowers, islands in the sky, waterfalls, and rivers.

And here’s a random pic I took of a creeper // zombie romance…I thought you all would love it. Kisses for the Creeper! XD

On to a completely different topic…

Apparently on Instagram, I am addicted to showing you guys / gals my shoes…I just realized the pattern today. I have especially mastered the “feet up on the dashboard” pose…

And I think I’ll leave you all with a very odd collage I just made. I call it “MaceyLou’s World.” I guess it represents those moments where I feel kinda weird and different from everyone else and I space out…this must be what the inside of my imagination looks like! :3 I also am guessing that me and my car race each other around a minecraft-type landscape, with a barbie house to go home to, under a strange but beautiful sky. Ah, yep, that’s what my head looks like inside it! Haha! ^__^

Well, that’s all for tonight. Goodnight, friends! Talk to you next time.

Hugs,

My New Work Station! :)

Hello Friends!
So I finally arranged my desk how I like it in my studio. And I started working on a new custom video series! I didn’t like how my first custom video turned out, even though I got a lot of positive feedback on it. So, I’m starting a new one…all showing the custom process of one doll. :) In the filming process, I learned that the lighting conditions were not good at my desk area. So, after filming part 1 (the NEW part one lol), I decided to turn my desk around, facing the opposite direction. And I got giddy!! I don’t know why, but my new work area is making me SUPER excited and motivated to work!! Enjoy the pics!

Hello Friends!

So this past weekend I finally got some work done!! Yay!! :) I was super excited, considering everything’s been pretty hectic and crazy, AND I’ve had an overabundant amount of lazy in me lately. I finally got a LOT done, and in one weekend…

It all began in my studio…below is a view outside of my studio window:

The studio is in need of cleaning and organizing, as per usual…lol…

I love those trees out there. They are really beautiful. The other window not pictured only has a view of my front lawn and the neighborhood.

So, I’m super behind on a dolly that I’ve been creating for my niece, Caitlin. Meant to be a Christmas gift for her, but lots of things came up, including buying and moving into our house, but I still feel like it’s a bad excuse. I mean, if I had just started working on her earlier…but anyway, so below is the WIP (work in progress) pic of her dress. No pattern used. I pinned the fabrics and pieces to the doll body, designing her dress as I went. Using patterns has always irritated me for some reason. I guess I love complete freedom, and granted: there is a lot of freedom with patterns, you can edit them, rearrange them, and add to them in various ways, but I like combining the design process with the cutting, pinning, and sewing process. It holds my interest longer that way and inspires me more, too.

Below is the dress in the front middle with my pin tomato, as well as my new unnamed EBL girl and my uncustomized translucent dark-haired beauty: I’m thinking of making the latter into a little vampire or cat girl. Not sure which yet…

Then, once her face was sealed, lips were glossed, and dress was done, this is what she currently looks like (she still needs her eyelids done, so her eyes are not ready to be put in her faceplate just yet…):

And, the last pic for you all tonight is a group shot of all the dolls currently in the Kitten Carousel Dollies studio. The only one NOT pictured below is Caitlin’s doll we just saw above, since she isn’t able to stand at the moment. Haha.

Goodnight and be well, my friends and pals!! xoxo – Macey

Recent Pins Monday #2: Relax After Work On A Tree Swing

Hi My Lovely Stars,

Today, I’m pinning some new pins as well as couple not-so-new ones. When I saw this swing above this water, my jaw almost dropped. It’s gorgeous! My dream place to be is there. Right there on that little swing, dangling my feet above the water.

When I think of this group of pins, I think of being at work most of the day in this cute outfit and shoes, then retreating home to this lovely swing in a tree. I’m too eager to change, so I just get straight on the swing in my work clothes, only kicking my heels off before going outside.

You can find me on Pinterest and view more of my pins here.

Hearts & Stars,

MaceyLou
