Cute Bjorn Uldollus picture

As usual, I like scanning in things with scanners, so I took a scan of someone's hand.  A split-second before I clicked the "Scan Image" button, Bjorn Uldollus popped in - he wanted to get his picture scanned in too!

Actually, I placed him there.  I just noticed that my Bjorn doll looks extremely cute on this picture, so I decided to post it.  :)

Just Like That - Was it ever released?

I was just wondering, was the song Just Like That ever released?  I think it was released, but I'm not sure.  I know part of it was on the Undeleted medley in the Thank You for the Music box set and The Complete Studio Recordings.  I've heard the "Na na" version of Just Like That, but when was it released?  I'm guessing that it was released.  Anyway, here are both versions of the song.  :)

Spot the four ABBA Members!

See if you can find the four ABBA Members in this picture from the Mamma Mia Premier in 2008.  :P

BTW, this is my 200th post.  :D

Money, Money, Money

I just uploaded Money X3 - I completed it this morning.  I have to say, I took a really long break from animating.  You can see Money X3 on the playlist above, so enjoy!

Also, the next animation on the list is S.O.S.  (I have a list in my head, but - as usual - I'm always changing my mind.)  I'm doing S.O.S. because I have ABBA Gold and it comes right after Money X3.  I already did Chiquitita, so I don't need to do that after S.O.S., but I might go to Fernando - or I'll do Agnetha's single from 1974, "Here For Your Love".

Frida 1992 "Saltwater"

I don't really care for the Beatles or anything related to them, but I really enjoy this video of Frida singing "Saltwater", a song written by Julian Lennon, in 1992.  

I'm glad that Frida has a normal haircut in this video and not like the picture to the right.  :P

Money Money Money Sneak Peek

Here is a sneak peek for my next animation Money Money Money.  I'm calling it Money X3 for now.
 I'm doing this song because in my previous animation, Crazy World, Frida wasn't shown even once in the animation.  So I'm going to let Frida have a huge part in this animation - besides, she does do the lead vocals.  :)

"Sammi Thisby Comes To Stay"

More Doll Cat Dress Pics

Before I show the ABBA doll pictures, here is a picture I took this morning of Lucille Doll (that's what I'm calling her) and two delicious muffins, the one with the pink and gray wrapper is blueberry and the one with the gray and blue wrapper is cranberry orange.  I made them and they really tasted good!  :)

Now for the cat dresses.  Do you notice anything different from when I first took pictures of the cat dresses?  Well, Bjorn's costume might be different, but that's not it.

There's nothing different here.

Here's what's different:  Their boots.  They're new, and they can be tied up like the real boots.

I did them with ribbon.

Here's a nice picture of Bjorn's new outfit.  :)  It's just his overalls with a jacket and a scarf over it.

A close-up

Bjorn's jacket.

Bjorn's other outfit.  The same overalls, though.

Another close-up.

Have you ever seen this doll before?

It's Stig Anderson!

The Ulvaeus' have something to show you.

This is just a close-up of the picture above.

Here's the surprise!  Linda and Peter have clothes just like their parents!

Another picture of the Ulvaeus Family.

Bjorn and Peter.

A close-up of the Ulvaeus boys in matching coats.  :)

Agnetha and Linda.

Agnetha and Linda again.
Linda looks so cute in her miniature cat dress.

The skirt extension can also come off!

The skirt at the front.

The skirt from the back.

Kissen the Cat

Linda's name at the back of her top.

The three girls in their cat dresses.  (I want to make Liselott soon and give her a matching one to Frida.)

All four ABBA members.

Agnetha and Bjorn with Stig.

Well, that's all I have so far.  The camera ran out of batteries, so I'll probably take more later.  :)

Happy 100 and 1st Birthday, Lucy!

Even though Lucille Ball is dead :(, it doesn't mean we can't celebrate her birthday!

By the way, I'm not sure if it is 101st or 101th.  :P
From Wikipedia
  A fact that I thought I would share with you is that Lucy died a day after Bjorn's birthday which is April 25th.  :(

Crazy World

I just uploaded my Crazy World animation a few seconds ago, so you can either watch it from my channel, watch it above, or watch it below.  :)

Waterloo! I was defeated, you won the war...

Here are some pictures of my newest doll outfits:  The Waterloo Costumes!  I had made some Waterloo costumes when I had first started sewing, and they didn't come out so great because I didn't really know what they looked like and all I had for reference was the cover of the Waterloo album.  I kept a few things from the original Waterloo Costumes I made like Agnetha's beanie and Frida's skirt.

A nice group shot.  :)

A close-up of the picture above.

A nice view of Agnetha's Waterloo costume.  (The red shirt she's wearing under her shirt broke, so it's a little lopsided.)

 A close-up of Aggnetha.  (Her beanie came out pretty good, but there's no flower on it like the real beanie.  Another problem with it is that it's always getting lost.  I had once found it stuck behind the couch, and I really stretched my arms trying to get it.)
Agnetha' bead thingy.  I don't really know what it is called, but I painted it silver and got myself really messy.

Bjorn's Waterloo costume.

A close-up of Bjorn.

Bjorn's bead thingys.  I had to paint them regular gray paint because I ran out of silver paint while trying to paint the Alien Outfits I made for them on the 4th of July.  :P

Bjorn's pants, which I painted gray like the real outfot.  (If you look closely on Bjorn left leg - the one to the right - you'll see that he had a big rip on his foot and his stuffing was falling out.  I repaired it and a bunch of other rips a day after I took these pictures.)

Frida, wearing her curly wig again, in her nice Waterloo costume.

A close-up on Frida.  (Her shirt was part of the original Waterloo costumes I made, but I added the shirt collar in later.)

Frida's bead thingies.

Frida's skirt from the original Waterloo costumes I made.

Benny's Waterloo costume.  His shirt is from the original Waterloo costumes.  It came out so good, I just had to keep it.  :)

A close-up of Benny.

Benny's bead thing.  :P

Agnetha eating a Snickers bar.

Agnetha's not the only one who wants the Snickers... :P

Good night dolls!  I guess they're tired of taking pictures...

Speaking of Waterloo, here is the Waterloo animation I made - the second animation I ever made.  :)

And speaking of animations, I completed Crazy World!  I plan to upload it soon, so stay tuned!
