I never do anything fun with this blog, despite doing the occasional fun thing in reality. I'm going on a trip to Disneyland starting Friday, and the most agonizing decision isn't what to pack or what to ride or where to eat or how to deal with the cat in the car (the cat goes with), but which doll(s) to bring.

This started simply enough. I wanted to prove to some folks that Twyla is basically the Haunted Mansion souvenir shop in doll form. )

So that was in May of 2014. I was supposed to go to Disneyland again in October of 2014, buuuut sadly that was when my aging cat sort of developed lymphoma and had to have surgery and the family I had planned to go with went without me while I spent a few days sleeping three hours at a time between medication, feeding, and the medication that had to be given an hour after feeding. By the time July of 2015 rolled around, we were gearing up for the kickoff of Disneyland's 60th anniversary celebration, and Harley (said sick cat) was recovered enough to go with us (pet-friendly hotels are the best)-- and so were Abbey and Heath! )

And then we packed up the dolls and the cat and went home. I'm glad I got to take Harley on vacation with me, because it turned out that trip was my last chance. Mom and I went at the very beginning of December as a pick-me-up from losing Harley, and this time I brought Mouscedes. )

But WHO LEAVES WITH ME ON FRIDAY? I have two days to decide and all I know for sure is that Luna, Sirena, and Bonita are out because I don't want to break/lose any of their bits, and Gooliope is out because I don't have a purse that big, and Robecca doesn't get to go to Disneyland until I can bring her AND Hexiciah (I'm getting that two-pack. I will sell my eye teeth for it). River doesn't photograph super-well, Elle has wiggly hips, I'd feel bad taking one Wolf sibling without taking the other three (and I don't have a purse that big, remember), Vandala photographs better than Porter but couldn't bring her obstacle of a hat, I don't want to crush Honey's hair... Maybe I'll bring Neight. Or Draculaura, to show off her new Bunny Blanc body (I have a Bunniculaura). Or Toralei. Or Jinafire, I've painted a lot of her stuff.

This is a hard decision!
I am a Hat of many hobbies, and this journal is about my dolls.

I specifically collect three different scales of dolls: 1:12 dollhouse dolls (men are about six inches tall), 1:4 fashion dolls (men are about seventeen inches tall), and life-sized child or baby dolls (I have three, with a fourth in progress. I accept the idea that once you have three of something impractical, you have a collection).

This blog is or will soon be full of lists and photos of said dolls-- what I have, what I wish I had, what I have for sale-- items I've made for dolls, whether my own or other folks', and probably occasional links to eBay auctions, as well as a fair amount of plain old picspam. As I write this, though, this blog stands pretty empty-- hopefully just having it here and waiting for me to fill it up will prompt me to dig out my camera and my photo backdrops and play with my dolls some more.
