Marisole Monday: Enchanting Evening

It’s 90 degrees here today and while I’m enjoying my day off, I do wish it wasn’t quite so hot. I spent most of the day roasting in my apartment debating turning on my air conditioner- I am glad I eventually did- and working on this post.

I could have done it yesterday and had it up by midnight, but I decided to go to a friend’s house and play board games and eat burgers. I do not regret this decision. I did have my sketch book with me which caused the following conversation.

Random guy: What are you drawing?
Me: Paper dolls.
Random guy: Long awkward pause.

I love that pause. 🙂

In other news, Paper Doll Garden is a new paper doll blog I found (Okay, new to me, it’s actually been around for a while) and the art is very good, plus there are males. Males, I tell you. This is highly exciting to me. I do wish she’d post in larger images as well as PDFs since I don’t usually print out, I just like to look. Though there was a time when I only had PDFs on the site, so I won’t judge too loudly.

I love her watercolor based style and I wish her much luck with her blog. The more paper doll bloggers the better, I say. Speaking of paper doll bloggers, if you have a blog of any kind, paper doll or otherwise, please comment and let me know. I’m always looking for new paper doll or paper doll related blogs.

Also, I have a poll as many of you know. It can be found on the sidebar. Is sticking a poll about my blog schedule on a late post ironic or just amusing?

Edit (10/7/2013): I just posted this paper doll set in black and white, so if you want to color her- now you can!


  1. that new blog does have PDFs which are larger versions. her username at the end of each post is hyperlinked to a PDF of that post’s dress.

  2. Neat new paper doll blog and I really really like the purple dress with the flowers. I think it’s great you have an Asian paper doll now.

  3. Yeah, Ana I saw the PDF’s which are great if you want to print out the paper doll, but since I don’t normally print, I like to have an easily viewable online version just to look it. It’s a minor compliant about a really wonderful blog. And since there was a time when I just did PDF’s and didn’t have another option on my blog, I shouldn’t really complain to loudly. 🙂

  4. Hey- I just wanted to thank you for mentioning my site on your blog. I really appreciate it! I definitely will keep your suggestion of bigger JPEGs in mind. 🙂
    I’m very flattered about what you said of my artwork. I do have one male paper doll, but I admit I have only made one outfit for him thus far. I plan on making more soon though-I hope you enjoy them! Thankyou again and have an awesome day!-Rebekah

  5. It was my pleasure to mention your blog, Rebekah. You produce wonderful paper dolls and I look forward to seeing whatever new you post. 🙂
