Snickerdoodle Street Q&A

I have gotten several questions about my decision to cease blogging Snickerdoodle Street. I will attempt to answer the questions here:



Q: Why are you taking down Snickerdoodle Street?
A: My doll spaces have become over loaded and it is difficult to maintain the structures (repair, dusting, etc)

Q: What will happen to your doll houses?
A: My houses will go into storage. I will keep Saige and Nicki's house and the SS Bakery out for easy access.

Q: Where will you put your mini dolls?
A: My OG mini dolls will be stored on a shelf.

Q: Do you still like mini dolls?
A: Of course! I find it very difficult to devote time to so many miniature items (cups, bowls, shoes, etc) keeping them corralled so nothing gets lost. It's becoming "cluttered".

Don't forget Snickerdoodle Street will remain online for readers to drop by at anytime. Moving forward any immediate AG mini doll news will be updated on LADL.

How to Make - Josefina's Mini Doll Size Horno Oven

Yukai did it again!
I don't have mini Josefina. I do have 18" Josefina and her horno oven.


When I saw Yukari's version of mini Josie's horno oven, I was blown away. It looks like the full size version. This gal has lots of creative ideas !!

See her tutorial on her mini website American Girl Minis

Downsizing Liberty Towne

In the midst of downsizing Snickerdoodle Street, several loose items ended up with no place to go. 



These items will be listed in my shop on etsy. For anyone looking to own a piece of Snickerdoodle Street or if you're simply looking for odds and ends for your mini world, stop by and shop.

BEFOREVER Minis - Barnes & Noble


I saw the new Beforever minis at Barnes and Noble. OK I'll admit it - they're cute, just different.

Julie is by far my favorite. She has a pretty face.



Rebecca is my next favorite.

These mini figurines would make great little presents for under your mini doll's tree. And these lamps would look great on a fireplace mantle.

Vintage 1961 Bubble Cut Barbie

YIKES!




This poor girl had a major accident. I bought her for .95c with a split in her face. Obviously the previous owner didn't soften the vinyl prior to removing her head from the body.


These vintage dolls are known for getting green ear, luckily mine didn't.


Doll restoration for a split can be $30+. I've decided to have her restored. Stay close for updates.

Sewing for Blythe Clone

It's fun to make clothes for dolls. During this period of time I was having a lot of fun styling my Blythe clones and sold clothing in my shop.

Here's a look back at the "collection".


Fun cold weather boots and accessories!




Stylish hats.


Cozy bedding for restful nights.


Separates. 





A wardrobe closet to put it all in!
