Barbies gone wild!

3,2,1... the giveaway is officially closed. I will announce the 3 winners tomorrow, the 13th of February. Thank you all so much for participating. I can't even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed reading your comments. To be honest, some of your memories got me a bit teary eyed, while others were rolling funny. Thanks to all of you crafty people, I have absolutely no reason not to make this a special Valentines Day for every member of my family. You all have such great Valentines Day craft ideas for kids, husbands, and friends. What a creative bunch!

 Tomorrow, after I announce the winners, I will have the peg doll kits and patterns available for purchase in the Pretty Ditty shop.  Next week, I will update the shop with a couple of new aprons and hand painted peg dolls. One of the peg dolls that would love to be adopted is Jessica...

Jessica's little bird friend goes where she goes, so they come together. I love her sweet little freckle's and big cheeks. She is also wearing an undershirt and polka dotted tights. I have decided to start painting undergarments on the peg dolls. I don't know about your house, but over here it's like Spring Break at Daytona Beach.....

The other day, I turned the corner and was greeted by this display of debauchery. Practically every single Barbie in this house is a nudest! When my mother-in-law was visiting, she asked my daughter "Why are all of the Barbies naked?" My daughter said "Because dems hot." I guess I'm going to have to turn on the AC in the middle of winter just to keep things decent around here, or paint undergarments on all of the Barbies ;)
See you tomorrow.

some ideas for cool Barbie duds would be fun especially for all of us out here with naked barbies and this Grandma has about 20 of them shaming the visitors(either that or they get left sitting on the loo with their knickers down in the Barbie house!!) what next!!

What is it about naked Barbie dolls? My 3-year-old undresses them, too!

Jacqueline said...

I'm excited about your shop update! Looking forward to those doll kits and new aprons!

Jessical is really really cute..i love her 2 little buns and those cute little freckles. Love her green dress too!

Your daughter is so cute. I could just picture her saying "Because dems hot." Put a smile on my face. n__n

Have a lovely merry day and good luck to all of us who entered the giveaway!

I am so excited by these dolls kits - even though I can't draw or paint to save myself. I just love their little frocks and their sweet faces....
and those naked barbies? I hope you have no Action Men around....

Or.... you could paint underclothes on the Barbies!

I'm laughing at the "action men" comment. Those Barbies look like they are on a mission.

Jessica is beautiful. I love her polka dot tights. I'm so excited about these dolls.

Jodi - We have Star Wars guys and you know that Yoda...

Mine is 8 years old and we still have naked Barbies all over. I find Sharpies are fab for drawing on permanent bikinis. My daughter loves it and gives very specific directions on what the swimsuit/bra/undies have to look like.

Sam said...

Am I to understand that you will have actual finished peg dolls to purchase along with offering the kits? Oh, I hope so. I want one to sit on my desk with me while I work.

Pretty Ditty said...

Sam - I will next week. I don't know how many. As of right now, there is one =) and two in progress.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Your Barbies should get together w/my girls' Barbie's and hit Mardi Gras or something.
My girls (3 and 2) immediately unclothe their new Barbie's. I don't get it. But it's always funny.

Jessica is adorable. I love her hairdo.

Pretty Ditty said...

I'm glad I'm not alone with the whole naked Barbie thing. That's just too funny =)

I think the reason why Barbies are always nude is that it is so hard to put the clothes on them. Her hips are so big that it is hard to get the little pants over them. When my daughter played with Barbies (sniff sniff) they were always naked!

Now it is all about the Jonas Brothers.....

you're right Barbies are always nude, and nobody suffers psychological damage from these toys. hahaha

I just loved what you did. I think you are doing an important contribution. I've got a collection of dolls and I think those dolls that you posted are gorgeous.By the way, I think your lovely daughter is very smart, because she could answer something different.
