I did it.
I’m posting this a little bit backward, as I think I ought to talk about Dolpa before I share a letter referencing Dolpa. However, this really touched me! I think it expresses one of the reasons that I love Volks so much. It’s more than just their dolls, it’s the people who work there, too! ♥ Continue reading
Things I know, with utter certainty, that I shouldn’t be doing: looking at other dolls. I don’t do nearly enough with my little Claire (although we’ll both be at Dolpa soon~) and I still cling to my Nono dream. Additionally, a Mi-chan will be coming home with me when we return from the event.
But sometimes, other dolls are so tempting! Continue reading
My constant yearning for a Volks Super Dollfie Nono isn’t merely a sigh, a dream, and a fond glance. I am certain that eventually I will buy one of these lovely dolls…especially because I have started doing something it is not a very good thing to do. I’m amassing. Little by little, I’m purchasing things that aren’t suited for Claire and weren’t suited for Claudia–things that are perfect for a Volks Super Dollfie girl. Continue reading
I finally registered for Volks‘ Doll’s Party in New York 4! It took me forever to make up my mind. I was starting to worry that I would miss the deadline and wind up in New York without actually being able to attend. (Although there’s still a chance that the tickets will have to be a lottery, so I am hoping that doesn’t happen so no-one who registered will have to miss out on the event.) I kept waffling between taking the workshop, not taking the workshop, taking the workshop and getting a doll, taking the workshop and getting a head, taking the workshop and not buying the materials for it, and so forth endlessly on and on! My poor husband bore the brunt of this indecision, but he tried his fuzzy-bunny-best to help me out. ♥ I think it would have been much rougher without his input. Continue reading
There’s a nagging thought in my mind that’s been driving me crazy–a little voice that whispers, “You want a Volks Nono.”
I try very hard to ignore the voice. I really enjoy Claire, and although I haven’t taken pictures of her in a while or purchased anything lately, she isn’t forgotten. Indeed, the only reason I haven’t purchased anything for her in a month or so is because I decided instead to purchase some things for myself and because the things I had in mind for her are sold out! (Darn that White Rose Collection gray school uniform… I know I’ll have to pay extra for it on the second-hand market… ;_; *sob*) I wonder to myself, “Should she own any lolita clothing? Where can I find cute shoes for her chubby feet?” She sits on my lap while I work on homework; my husband pats her head when he passes by. Continue reading
