Beadbloggers and a photo of a custom Blythe named Tea

Here is Tea, my custom-from-Japan Cinnamon Girl. I actually have more Cinnamon Girls (they have a tanner color to their skin tone and only came out for one year way back when EBLs were being made (somebody correct me if I am wrong!)* than any other type of girl. Tea looks fab in her Andy Warhol T shirt I got just for her and with her elegant sparkly nose piercing!  That was rare back then! She also has around 4 earring hoops in graduated sizes on each of her ears and her lips are perfectly done. This customizer was a superstar. I love that multicolored mohair, too. One girl I will never let go!  --jean
