10 Facts: Tobi

Tobi's turn! Not sure if this photo quite captures her bubbliness, but it certainly captures her colourfulness!

Full Name: Tobermory Rhianna Jaxon [Lastname]
Age: 18-19
Birthday: June 21st
Favourite Colour: Lemony Yellow
Myers-Briggs Type: ENFP - Turbulent

1. Tobi comes from a big, artsy family. She has 2 older sisters and 3 younger sisters.
2. She is a terrible chef and baker (seriously, it's a talent), but is very good at making food look pretty.
3. Her bedroom is an absolute disaster zone.
4. She's not a very good swimmer and uses a floaty when she's in the water.
5. She doesn't really like chocolate.
6. She has a mild(-ish) fear of dogs, especially big ones.
7. She is allergic to shellfish (which is completely fine with her - she thinks they're icky anyway).

8. It often confuses people who know her how focused and organized she is when it comes to painting because she is excessively scatterbrained in every other regard.
9. Tobi is almost entirely ambidextrous.
10. She tends to be very oblivious to the feelings of others and doesn't always realize when she has hurt them.

Etsy Update: March 19 @ 11:30am

Hello again everyone!

Commissions are done and I've been working really hard on my TODO list and making pretty decent progress if I do say so myself. I've had a few ehm... distractions pop up, but I think they've been fun and productive. There's a big stock of new things built up now, so I think it's time for an Etsy update.

inEssence Creations - M-Line Minifee Cotton Pants

Lots of cute colourful things for Minifee this time around. There are some M-Line pants, some tops, dresses, and remakes of the cute Rainbow Stars shorts.

inEssence Creations - Unoa/Littlefee Wrap BraceletAdditionally, all of the wrap bracelets will be available, there are a bunch in MNF size and some in Unoa size. The Unoa size also works really well for LittleFee, so might be good for other Yo-sized dolls too. :)

Storenvy has become really unreliable and until they fix a major issue, my shop there is entirely unusable. Once I can transfer all of my info, I might end up close my shop there. While I'm looking for other options, I'm going to be relying on Etsy. To test it out, there will be a few spots for custom wrap bracelets available in this update. So if nothing quite appeals (or is in the wrong size), you can order one made just for you!

New Fabrics

So... I popped in to the fabric store today to get some more black thread... and came out with two new fabrics. This is in addition to the ones I picked up a few weeks ago during a fit of melancholy. I might* have a problem...

Anyway~! Here is the formal introduction of a few of the new lovelies. Hope you like them!

Lila (light version)

Seems I have a very strong tendency to name my floral fabrics English girl names... Should maybe work on that... Maybe.

*There is no 'might'. Only problem.

Bracelets for Days~

The last few days I've been (a bit obsessively) making wrap bracelets again. I had a bit of a spree making them in 2013, but haven't made any new ones for about 2 years now (whoops!). Working with beads is so enjoyable! So far I've got a big pile of designs - including a few remakes of my favourites that ended up sold or as gifts for friends. I even remade my absolute favourite design twice so I can keep one for Bella. Totally making progress on the 'clothes for my dolls' resolution! Kinda!

inEssence Creations - Minifee Wrap Bracelets

I think my current favourites are the Navy and Gold, Pink Shell and Matte Bronze, and the two jumble pattern ones. I accidentally ended up with a lot of darker colour combinations, so I might try for a few brighter ones soon. We'll see what happens. :)


A new bead store opened up in my neighbourhood recently and is conveniently down the street from my doctor's office. They don't have much selection for me in general, but they had a few little ziplocs of beads around the right size. I'm going to check back again in a few weeks to see if they order them on purpose or if they were just selling leftovers. I got the little transparent silver beads from there and am totally in love. They're such a delicate way to add metallics without overwhelming anything.

I'll be putting them all up on Etsy sometime in the next few weeks along with some spots for people to request custom designs/sizes. It might take a while to get all the photos taken - it's been pretty gloomy recently, but hopefully I can get a whole bunch done in the morning when we get a little patch of sunshine.

If you want to know whether these will fit your doll you can take a measurement of their wrist circumference.

The A-Line/M-Line size fits wrists up to 3.3cm and don't fit LittleFee or Unoa.

The Unoa size fits wrists to about 4.2cm and works for B-Line Minifee and LittleFee.

Hope you like them!
