While it may seem like I've been a wee bit inactive on my blog, I promise I'm still writing and trying to make sure everything is perfect before I release anything of consequence (AKA character stories). It's something I've been doing in the background of everyday life inbetween actually doing hobby-related things (more to come [...]

New Category: BJD Character Stories
With everything going on in my personal life, I've really been delving deeper into aspects of the hobby as both a relief from my stress/anxiety and a treat to myself. You wouldn't believe (or maybe you would) how much it helps to have something that you can immerse yourself in. It's an escape of sorts, [...]
Making a Unicorn Part 1: A Love Story (Or De-Yellowing Part 3)
So for anyone who didn't see my previous post, I managed to get my grail doll off the second hand market at an affordable price. I was super excited not just for the chance to finally own a Soom Heliot, but for the project it was sure to be. Looking at the original pictures, I [...]
A Post-Doll North… Post.
... (more than) a month later. YEAH, SO. It's hard to believe a month has passed since I flew to Canada. I really should've done this sooner but metaphorical poop hit the fan and sort of left me drained, to say the least. Biggest thing: I had a blast! It was so cool to be [...]
Doll North & Life Changes
So I'm going to Doll North in Ontario. SUPER EXCITED. I've never been to an actual doll convention before. Regardless of the fact that it's attached to Anime North, it's definitely it's own thing with as much as they have going on. This'll be our big trip for the year and, well, possibly the next [...]
I’ve done it now.
Whelp. I did it. I put Snowborn on layaway through Mint on Card. I've been thinking about it all month and it's finally happened. My husband is really good to me. We spent most of our money on a trip to Canada for Anime North (and incidentally Doll North) and we were going to split [...]
Dolly Endeavors (Part 1)
With winter's end there's always a new spring of inspiration in me to do more 'productive' things in my hobby. I say productive like that because of course it's a hobby and I should be more concerned with enjoying myself than anything, but the most enjoyment I get is usually seeing improvement in my [...]
New Year, New Me, Bla Bla Bla.
So it's hard coming back to this realizing there's been more than a 6 month gap in my last posting. Certainly not the first time it's happened, but still a bit jarring. I hadn't realized I'd been on such a long hiatus. There's not much to explain, as far as that goes. Money got tight, [...]
I… NOTICED, SOMETHING IN MY INBOX.

I logged into my blog yesterday and found a comment from Ide of Cups of Resin, who nominated me for a Liebster award! Thank you so much!! I had no idea what that was, but after snooping on Google, I found out it's a nomination bloggers give other bloggers to spread the word to people [...]
