Okay, spring is not here. Yet. Not even winter. If winter means freezing cold weather and tons of snow. But my mind is already set to spring. Some of you already know why, and for the ones who don’t know yet let me tell you that I just booked a ticket to Tokyo! Also booked a tiny flat in Shinjuku! How exciting is that!?! 123 days till the trip 😀
So let me warn you, I do get very annoyingly excited about super awesome stuff like this. I’m sure the never ending winter will bring me down a little, but from now on this will be my major topic on all of my post. Okay, I try not to drive you crazy. But no promises. 😉
Okay, so now I need to start saving money. I know how it’s done in theory: you spend less than you get. And that mean no on-line shopping, no dolls or doll clothes, no fabrics, no letter sets, no washi tapes or glitter glues.
But what I don’t know is how people do it. How can they be four months and two days without having any fun? I can’t put my life “on ice” for that long and just wait for the trip. How can one be four months and two days without buying any dolls at all? How do you do it? What are you excited for?
My dolly friends here in Finland and I made a deal for not to buy any dolls for a month. I would tell you if my husband wasn’t reading this, that I bought a doll on the last minute (okay, not really a minute, I had few hours left) of November. I had to. But I’m not telling you that, right. So it didn’t really happen, right? But now I have FOUR months to take it easy. How am I supposed to do that?
So, I decided to allow myself to use the money Pinkkis makes to buy dolly stuff or more needed things for Pinkkis. Like Pinkkis can’t spend more than it makes. And if there’s any left, then that money is for me to spend on dollies. Sounds like a good idea? I like it a lot, but not really sure how to stick to it. I thought by telling it to as many people as possible would make it more difficult for me to break my “promise”. So I’m telling you now; keep an eye on me!
I still have quite good stock of fabrics, so no need to buy more. Other than the furry material for the sleepsacks, but I just ordered tons of that. And zippers, too. So I should be okay for quite a while. And when I get to Japan, I’ll buy enough cute fabrics to cover a small country! To be well stocked for the super exciting Blythecon EU 2014! Did I tell you I got chosen to be one of the vendors!
I have a Xmas Fair coming, and I’m not done sewing yet so I better get working! There will be one new sleepsack added at the store today, a very cute fireman for all the little dollies who need to be protected.
ps. Sorry for all the typos, misspellings, weird/wrong words I might’ve used, I didn’t ask my hubby to proofread it 🙂 So this is the “real” me writing 😉
