I’d like to share some of my dolly news with you! Little by little I’m getting the dream dolls I’ve always (or at least for the last six months) wanted, and some that I didn’t even know I wanted but once I saw them knew they were meant for me. I told you about the Tiina custom I managed to get, right? My Holy Grail girl. There was one on Ebay this week and it sold for over 1,300 euros!!! I’m not going to say what I think about that…but if you have that kind of money to spend on a doll then why not. I didn’t pay anywhere near that much for my doll.
I don’t know if I can ever have a doll family I of which I can say “This is it, no more for me,” but honestly as soon as one special little dolly arrives from Canada, I think I might just settle down and enjoy the ones I already have. So, there’s still one more…Okay, there’s still Goldie which I’ve been looking for for a long time now (lost her twice already). So there’s still room for one dark haired drinker (there’s this amazing photographer on Flickr who takes the funniest pictures of Goldie, and he always makes her a drinker). But at the moment I’m not even actively looking for her. I need to get my financial stuff organized and under control first. So, maybe next year…
I have been re-doing the dollhouse once again. I was never really satisfied with the penthouse bedroom, the room that two dolls (sisters, Alex and Nana, MUG and OKM) shared. It was somehow way too busy for the eye, too crowded. Too something. So something had to be done. And while I was working on that I also redid the rooftop balcony, which came out great!! The bedroom’s nice, too. I also rearranged the house’s occupants, like who lives where. Feel free to laugh but it was really hard to decide to let Bambi, my first doll, move into the “Glass Palace” and let the new girl from Canada take over her apartment. Also Bunny had to move. 😦 So Alex could move and the “little girls” Nana and Phoenix (Tiina custom) could share a room.
All this has to be very interesting to you…sorry. It’s just that that’s all the happy things that’s going on in my life. Okay, not true. But there has just been so much stress over the studies and I’ve been sick and it’s sucks to be sick if you’re unemployed. But I’m better now and the school stress is over for now, have been having some huge tests and I’m so close to being done with it all, but there’s still stuff to do and I still don’t have a clue about what I’d like to do.
A few nights ago we were watching a movie and in it a man got one of those cool-looking silver trailers and traveled around the States, and I asked my hubby if that’s something we could do after the kids move on their own. To sell the house and just travel. I’d like that 🙂 Hahah! Who wouldn’t? What if we could both work for a year or two and then do it again, just over and over again. Work and then quit and go see the world. I dunno, maybe we’d get bored with that too. I just don’t like this stability of everything. I want something *more*, some action. And yet I don’t want things to change.
|Now you see me!|
I’ve been sewing again. This time I have something really interesting I’m working on! A Protective Blythe Tote!! We had a small Blythe meet with few of my dolly friends and sold one of my creations to each participants. 😀 Yay! And they all really liked the idea. Now I’m working on more and I should be posting them on Etsy today or tomorrow! Wohoo!!
Oh! Did you hear that? That was the sound of my sewing machine calling for me. Gotta go!
Enjoy the autumn weather!!
