I’ve been suffering from the birthday blues for about two weeks. I recently hit one of those big birthdays, and I guess it’s a combination of feeling like time is passing too quickly and feeling like I haven’t done much with the time I’ved lived.
And instead of motivating me to get my life together, I’ve fallen back to old habits. I find when I’m bummed, I resort to rewatching shows from my childhood. In the depths of my depression four years ago, I marathoned all of Xena and Hercules (because I love crossovers, mythology, and campy goodness). Right now, I’m marathoning Dragonball (dubbed) and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I think it’s because while I remember the general storylines, I don’t remember most of the details. There’s an element of familiarity, but I’m still entertained.
I haven’t done much with my dolls or with yarn lately. It’s been raining a ton recently and my kitten pretty much can’t control herself around string, so no doll activities or crocheting/knitting. The only thing that has been up with me and my girls is that I’ve sold two dolls and I’m expecting two incoming girls ^^.
I’ve sold my obitsu/picco neemo hybrid – I just didn’t enjoy the tiny scale. I’m also in the process of selling Elowyn, my Cherie Babette – even after a year, I still wasn’t sure how I felt about her. I think it might be her coloring. She might look better with a different scalp, but since translucent faceplates are pretty fragile, i really didn’t want to risk causing cracks to the plates during the opening process.
As for incoming dolls, ^^ I’m expecting a new customized girl! I sent my Hi-Ho Marine away to Jannette of Project Dollhouse, and I think she’s coming back soon. I also am adopting Jann’s Jerryberry basic!! 😮 If I recall correctly, a jerryberry was on my New Years doll goals! … also I really wanted to treat myself for my birthday >_<.
Very wordy, I know.
This brings my current doll count to: 4 Liccas and 5 blythes (with a Jerry Berry and another Blythe on the way).
One more thing, I breathed new life into my custom Licca.
I cut her bangs a bit! I much prefer her with the shorter fringe. Her hair was cut oddly, where she had two long pieces (one on either side), that awkwardly covered her face. I decided to name her Wren – my Licca chan who loves wearing shades of brown.
Tomorrow also will be a non-hobby day. Maybe at the very least, I can redress my dolls.
