mini shopping haul

It’s the holiday season and we are feeling all kinds of holiday spirit at s.p.o.t.s! Our s.p.o.t.s loft has been transformed into a cool Christmas atmosphere thanks to some fun Christmas finds that we were able to get our hands on.

Christmas Tree

Our loft would not be complete for Christmas unless we purchased a Christmas tree to put in the set. We purchased a simple decorative tree from our local Five Below and it is the perfect size for our space. You can just about find a miniature tree at any store that sells holiday decor such as Michaels or Target, but this tree was the perfect fit for us.

Tiny Ornaments

Our miniature ornaments were an absolute steal. We found these decorative tiny ornaments at our local Michaels and got a pack of silver and red. They come in a few other colors as well and they work perfectly for any 1:6 scale doll Christmas tree.

Lights

The final touch for our Christmas decor are our fairy lights. We recently purchased them from Amazon. They are great for the set because they come in a pack of 2 and are operated by using remotes to change the light settings. This is particularly helpful so that you don’t have to constantly maneuver the battery pack to use the lights and their settings. We’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for more 1:6 scale decor!

I hope you enjoyed this post! Stay tuned for a new post every Friday!

new projects!

We have a couple a new projects that we’ve been developing to prepare for the next few months before the year ends.

November planning (Vlog Theme)

Since we’re about to begin a new month, that means a new theme for doll page. November’s theme will be vlog themed and follow the dolls and the team and their day in the life activities.

“wildwave” Book

We also have started a new story project series. The “wildwave” series will follow a group of college students and their musical journey together as a band. We’ve recently locked down the characters and can’t wait to start our first draft.

“Campus Life” Rewrite

Along with “wildwave”, I have also begun a rewrite of a book series that I started in high school. The “Campus Life” series project has always had a special place in my heart, so I’m excited to take story in a different direction than its original version.

s.p.o.t.s loft

One of our other big projects coming up for the holidays is the construction of our s.p.o.t.s loft, a two-story hangout space for the dolls for our doll page. Pictured below is a behind the scenes look at our tester set that was constructed to get measurements. The official debut of the finished project will be around Thanksgiving.

Prepping for the new year

And lastly, we are overall prepping for the new monthly themes for the new year! We are really excited to show what we have planned!
