Three years ago(!) I wrote a blog post about doll-related New Year's resolutions. It's time to update them, but it turns out that not much updating is needed, instead I mostly need to rearrange some priorities.
As many of you know, I have a large 18" vinyl doll collection, and I keep it manageable by setting up display areas in my doll room focused on "friend groups". For instance, Lindsey is the ringleader of my modern American Girl dolls and several of them hang out in her bedroom. If a doll doesn't have a friend group to join where she fits in, adds variety, and fills a role (without overcrowding the space), s/he gets rehomed.
I've found a solution for the occasional changing of the URL for my Take Your Doll To Work album, the record of which doll accompanied me to work and what she was wearing on that day. The album is getting large, 487 pictures, representing 3+ years of 3-4 days per week, with the most recent photos first. The new (and permanent) URL is:
Hi! I am new to this site and I am a reborn doll collector. When I was little I collected American Girl dolls, and I have them, but I haven't brushed their hair in like...forever. Now I have reborn dolls: Kyle By Pat Moulton (Matthew) Reese by Andrea Arcello (Reese) Stormy by Donna RuPert (Carter) and Julie By Evelina Wosnjuk (Sophie). I love them all and I am also a very rare breed of collector: I am still in High School. We are going to be going to a doll show soon, and I'm bringing Reese. She is sooo cute, no joke.
