Postcard from Israel

Hi Becky! Havin’ a great time, wish U were here! Here I am at the western wall.  Dinner tonite with the big guy. They’ll probably serve flippin’ falafel. Can you email Piper and make sure she cleaned the house and the studio? Thanks a bunch,  also too.

  1. Thanks, as usual you leave me laughing.

  2. First time here…love this place, love the Barbies. It’s bookmarked and links sent to friends.

    You need to find a way to fix the Palin Barbie eyes so one is just enough off center to match Palin’s. As lovely and as spot on as your re-creations are, the bozo eye would make it perfect.

    • I have actually used a sharpie to adjust her eye on two of my sarah dolls, but it is very subtle and hard to pick up except in close ups. Since you can’t erase a face and redo it, all has to be done over the top of what is already there. Glad you enjoy the site. I think of it as creative sanity to deal with the insanity that is Sarah Palin. If she won’t sit down and shut up, then neither will I.

      • Yeah, on something that small, it would be really hard to pickup. It is fun to think about though. I think when I find some spare time, I might experiment with clear labels. I could create a graphic eye to paste over the painted on one. One of those things to do when sleep doesn’t come easily. I will let you know how it goes. It might be really fun on the Bratz eyes.

        • I often push the limits on doll alteration, which is why I need a supply of replacements. Unfortunately, I’m not a craftsperson with good tools and a delicate touch. I’m a hack with a handful of sharpies, a pair of scissors, glue, hanger wire, and duct tape. lol

        • I just posted a couple of close-up Israel Sarahs in the Rogues’ Gallery. I think the key to making her look more cross-eyed is to move the white eye-dot closer to her nose. I’ve been a little too busy with new arrivals to do an analysis of my current Sarahs. Time to scrutinize my inventory.

  3. I noticed the eye…! I thought it was ‘flippin’ brilliant..! Love it and the commentary… Thank you!
