I have been a Blythe doll fan for several years.
This year my daughter informed me that she'd like a Blythe for Christmas.
You may not know this, but Blythe's are difficult to buy in the U.S.
unless you find a friend here on flickr or instagram
and adopt one!
Well I decided to try ebay.
Since it can take weeks for the doll to be delivered from Asia I decided
I better start now in time for Christmas and this will give me time to
make some extra clothes.
Grace requested the doll named "Chocolate" and she comes with a mate "Vanilla", shown above.
I ended up buying them from an Australian seller.
It was awesome. They arrived in 10 days.
The price was 'right'.
I was elated.
now fast forward to yesterday.....
1 week AFTER they arrive.
DD Grace, decides she doesn't want a Blythe for Christmas, she wants a
Nintendo DS 3D.
So much for being ahead of the game.
After much contemplation on my part,
I have decided to keep them in secret in case she changes her mind.
IF she still doesn't "want" one...
I guess the girls are mine (insert evil laugh).
In other news.
My jungle of a garden is starting to produce.
And we have pretty squash blossoms....
I love Blythe! I just can't justify her cost right now so I'll live vicariously through others for now :D
Uh oh! I like to be ahead of the game too. I have 3 daughters and my 6yo and 3yo don't play with dolls much, but I have an 18 mo girl who loves "babies.". I saw some 18 inch dolls at Michaels that are like American dolls. I thought about getting each of them a mini me. Has anyone bought these dolls? Or should I spring for the real deal? The American dolls are just so expensive.
I saw a Nancy Ziemen book to make 30 minute doll clothes.
Go figure! She may still change her mind.
She has plenty of time to change her mind! :0)
