Afterlife Reject Doll Brain Storming

We are Brain Storming new Afterlife Reject Doll ideas.  And, we would love to borrow some of your creative fabulousness.

If you could create your own Reject Doll anyway you wanted, what would he or she look like.  Costume ideas, accessories, sports teams etc.

Personally, I would really like to go totally nuts on one with mixed media. Maybe start with a White Reject and paint him different colors, with a super big crazy hat. Or, oh, that hat gives me an idea. How about a My Fair Lady Reject.

My 62 yr old Mixed Media Art mommy, is dying for us to make her a Queen Elizabeth Reject, with the collar and crown.

Catilyn has plans for a Gothic Reject and is working on a sleepy time set, and Naomi is making us leather 'Mad Hatter' Hats.

Please don't be shy, we really do want to hear your ideas.  And who knows, one of you may get your wish, and Receive your dream Reject.  Especial if you would be willing to send us pictures of you and your new Reject  to show off. lol

Three Quirky Movie Questions

Good Morning - I thought it would be fun this morning to do something non worky.  I love to read, our house closely resembles a library. But, our entire family are huge movie buffs. So, I thought movie questions! But, I made them a little off the wall. lol

1.  What movie can you quote like a Star Wars fan would his?
     - Mine is Lonesome Dove (is that weird for a girl?)

2. What movie line got stuck as common use in your home.
    - Ours is "Is good" from an old black and white movie called 'I Remember Mama'

3. What movie are you kind of embarrassed that you love.
    - Mine is 'Step Brothers'. I know it's sooo immature,  but I still laugh my tail off.

I'd love to hear yours. Smiles

What are Afterlife Rejects

Afterlife Rejects are Weird, Strange, little Dolls. OOAK and handmade. Rejects are born with open hearts, minds, and arms. Reject Dolls are oddball individuals.

Afterlfie Rejects were born due to our Economy. I am a Painter and sold art. But when the economy started to roll down hill people could not afford expence art. Then the main highway through our entire area was closed for over six months due to a rock slide and all tourist traffic to the area went with it. Lots of local buisness closed down including a Ryans, Rental stores, clothing stores, and Rafting companies. We had to think quick. What can we make that only the locals could afford and would buy. After several trail and errors Afterlife Rejects were born.

It was a little over a year age that Afterlife Rejects first hit local stores and fairs and they were a big hit. So we decided in October of 2010 to go worldwide and open our Etsy Store. Within days of opening our store we had a family emergency and delayed our big opening untill just before Black Friday.  We discovered the World loves Afterlife Rejects as much as we do and we struggled to keep up with sales during December.

Afterlife Rejects are run, owned, and operated by our creative family members. Mom (thats me - Sidhe Kalas, two daughters (Catilyn and Naomi) and our son (Laurence), even the daddy (that would be my hubby) gets the help stuff on busy days. We live in the heart of the Smokey Mountains between Knoxville, TN and Asheville, NC in the great metropolis of Cosby, TN.

Cat and I take care of most all Reject Business and Naomi now has her own line of crazy dolls called OMYS.

We are a very close knit family. It is normal for us the have to wait weeks in scheduling vacations so that the grown kids and grandparents are all included. Our favorite vacation is a day trip to the zoo or the hour and half ride to a city big enough to get some organic food. lol  We are foodies at heart and have a house that is so full of books that it looks like a library.
