100th Post!




I'm terrible at remembering blogiversaries, but since Blogger shows you what number post you're about to write, it's easy to keep track of numbers. Since this is my 100th post, I decided to create collages of pictures from previous posts. I also have a small list of things I'd like to do as the blog moves forward.

1. Be creative! I want to sew doll clothes more often, but I also also want to try painting furniture, and even building a few kits that I have. (They're a secret!) Some disappointing results in the past, and fear of trying new things, have put me off painting and building. I'm ready to try again.

2. Get outside! Now that I have a travel doll, I'd like to get more outdoor shots, and also take her along to places that I visit.

3. Better pictures! I'm almost done clearing out my sewing area/doll display space (they're in the same room.) I still won't have a dedicated space to pose dolls for pictures, but I'm hoping I'll be able to set up backdrops without so much shuffling things around. I could also use some lights specifically for picture taking, but I don't see those in the budget anytime soon.

I'm thankful to all my readers/commenters for reading my posts! I hope that you will all stick around for the next 100!

    1. Thank you! I'm glad the weather is so nice here right now; I'm thinking of many different places that I can go.

      That first doll is a Mooshka doll! It originally featured a line of cloth dolls. The doll above is similar to the cloth dolls in appearance, but is a lot smaller, and is similar in weight and feel to a jointed wooden doll.

  5. Congratulations! I like your collage. What a good idea.

    I have not yet become brave enough to take photos beyond my backyard. But maybe seeing yours (and hearing the reactions) will make me buck up. I am looking forward to seeing them and the next 100 posts.
