Daisy’s room ‘o foam ‘n photoshop

The impermanence of Daisy’s current life is written all over her room. Where Rosie has metal and wooden furniture filled with bits of her life, Daisy’s space is all flimsy foam furniture and empty cupboards.


The most obviously flimsy part of her room is the lack of a second wall. I have the materials to put a wall behind her desk (including the 24 inches of carefully cut and painted beadboard), but I just couldn’t be bothered putting it together.


That was a foolish time-savings, on my part, since I spent more time photoshopping in the missing wall then I would have spent creating an actual wall.

Here’s the real view from Daisy’s desk:


and the very fake photoshopped in wall:

The desk itself, while nice enough, is also made of foamboard. It’s the remnant of an earlier time (e.g., a month ago) when I was more careful about creating elements for her room. Now, I’m so impatient to get her on her way that I can’t even glue a few beadboards onto some foamboard.

Her window seat is also foamboard:


And her rug is a piece of felt from the local crafts store.

She does have one real piece of furniture – a wooden wardrobe (probably a jewelry box) from Goodwill:


But I didn’t even fix up the shelves for this shoot, and I left the scrapbook paper hanging by a pin behind it.

The *real* action in Daisy’s room is all the stuff piled to the side.


These are all of the characters and accessories from upcoming episodes, including a mysterious stranger in sunglasses.


Meeting that stranger will start her adventure. She’ll pack her suitcases (now carefully stored away with her travel clothing) and leave all this foamboard and photoshop behind.




In my (almost) 60th year on earth I decided to set my fashion dolls free of their clothes and accessories and send them on adventures. This is your window onto my own adventure into a land of crafts where I have zero skills, talent or mentors. Wish me (and my dolls) luck!
