When I got the email yesterday afternoon indicating that there was a parcel for me in the pick-up center, my heart leapt! It was my Volks USA one-off from their Grand Reopening Celebration–SD Miruku! I hurried over to claim the package, but I didn’t get to open it until my work day was over and I returned home.

I’m aiming to take care of the things that really frustrate me so that I can overall enjoy my dolls much more~ Sometimes it’s tempting to alleviate those kinds of feelings by purchasing new dolls, but that is not what I want to do.

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 »
