After letting this blog lie fallow for nearly a year, I've decided that I need my own place to post my thoughts on dolls and to post pics. I've been disappointed with several of the doll groups I've joined - one only insists that fashion dolls (HIGH fashion dolls, as in HIGH in price) are the only ones worth noticing. The second, which I thought would be more democratic, decides that everyone has to post under their REAL name, even though the board owner doesn't. (Hypocritical, much?) Right now, I'm posting under my initials - sorry, but I don't give out my real name to anyone unless I have to. Why? Because this is the internet, that's why, with all sorts of crazy stalkers and crap! Hello! Sorry if someone wanted those Kellys I won, but your doll group is not worth having someone use my real name to look up my street addy (and this has happened; luckily it turned out to be someone my family knew from back in the day, but still...)
But anyway, you didn't come here to read my rant about doll groups - you came to see DOLLS! And as you can see, I like to make dioramas for my dolls - this is the latest one. Not my best one, but I was working with some budget constraints (as in "no money after the holidays") and I think it turned out pretty good considering. In the upcoming days, I will be posting some more holiday themed diorama pics for your enjoyment.
In the meantime, have a Happy New Year and here's hoping that you find the dolls of your dreams and have the money to buy them!
