Hi everyone!

Making some minor changes to old folders and adding some new folders to make choosing the right folder for your craft easier, and making it easier for us to sort and clean up later.

There was a lot of confusion between the "Doll Construction" and "Work in Progress" Folders. Doll Construction was meant for finished artisan dolls made by you, but the ambiguous title also meant a lot of people got confused and put dolls IN construction in there. Because it was an easy misunderstanding, we never declined anyone for it, but we did often move things. So it's now been renamed to "Finished Doll" folder for any art doll you've made and completed.

Art dolls in progress still go in the "Work in Progress" folder

There are now many more folders to cater for people who make accessories. You now have the option of folders for Jewellery, Headgear, Footwear, Wings, Accessories, Props, Furniture and Sets. There's also a "where do I put my  

The Other folder is now Misc and is for those who simply can't find a suitable category, or for those unsure where to put their pieces.

I will be shifting you submissions around over the next day so they're in the correct folders

Once more I remind everyone to PLEASE put a comment in your artist statement saying what you made. Even if it's obvious you made it, or you have multiple images and one of them states it and the others done, we still need it on every image. We have been getting people who have had something made by someone other than themselves submitting to the group, so this is why we need that, to showcase YOUR work and be sure you are credited for it.

We are a BJD craft group focusing on the many talented Deviant Art artist who create, sculpt, paint, mod, build and otherwise customize their BJDs

We accept: Face-ups, body blushing- including tattooing, sewing, modifications, sculpting BJDs, sculpting scale props, handmade scale jewellery, beadwork and other handmade crafts for any scale Ball Jointed Doll, as long as the work is yours, even if the item or blushing in question is for another person.

We don't accept: Drawings of your dolls, human scale items, crafts, face ups, mods, outfits etc made FOR your doll by anyone other than yourself, crafts for non BJDs like Monster High or Tonner dolls or plans for artisan made BJDs.

WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANYTHING MADE FOR OR DISPLAYED ON A RECAST BALL JOINTED DOLL. As a BJD craft group, we support ARTISTS and we stand against the art theft and blatant illegal counterfeiting that is recast dolls. If a recast is submitted, it will be deleted from the group, and the member in question will be blocked.

-Credit yourself! Deviations need to state clearly what it is you've made/done in the image in the artist statement.

-Clothing, props etc don't have to have a BJD in the picture, but please indicate that is BJD scaled.

-We do not accept people submitting items for other people. The image must include something you made yourself.

-We accept all levels of skill, but we do NOT accept art theft. This includes claiming a craft is yours when it was made by someone else, unpermitted use of patterns, use of other people's photographs and use of, and in any way, even if the craft IS yours, of a recast doll.

Thanks for approving my contribution.  

I'm working on more accessories (including the chair to that particular couch) I am also going to do a leather set as soon as I can get more leather. (In black I think, with a wood frame)

I'm looking to see what others would like to see me make... or what other BJD owners would consider buying if it was available. I can make quite a few different things and if I can't find a design I will always make my own. (Such as the one for the couch as if you look up doll furniture on line there's VERY little good items on how to make it) and most of it is crappy! 

the more feed back I get the better, and if ANY of the users in here or their friends are interested in a custom couch/chair piece please feel free to page me via note... and we can talk about ideas/concepts colors/fabric ect. :)
