Oh, Supia…. look what you’ve done now. Not only did you sculpt the only female worthy enough to join my “males only” bjd wish list but now you’ve just made one of the loveliest boys I’ve set my eyes on for the first time in a very long time. I knew that checking out that news thread screamed trouble. “Supia”+”boy”=TROUBLE I TELL YOU!!!!!! khakhsdfkahluh!!! I want!!! T_T … right now;A; I actually joined in the discussion on DOA… for a moment (hey that’s a lot for me). Didn’t think he would fit in with any of my other boys… (not like it matters) but someone found a loop-hole *cough* *seijikat* *cough* … trouble maker.

Still working on Merry Mart items. The show is this weekend. Still have lots of thoughts on my plans for next year and projects that will be going on, starting at the end of this year (so soon). All things that will keep me very busy… but a really good kind of busy that will involve me playing with dolls.

Ugh, I’m coming down with a bit of a cold. Taking some zinc and going to bed.

I’ve said before and I’ll say it again, these guys just crack me up. I love how they photograph. The mr does an amazing job at capturing them.
Edit* Yoshi is wearing an olive t made by Mon from Dorset clothing. It goes so well with his knitted shorts and is just as soft<3

I don’t think I mentioned it here (maybe g+… if so sorry for those who are hearing about it again). While we was at NYCC Jennifer and I stopped at the Soom booth to see what they had. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular (and they were not taking credit… strange right?) I did spot a pair of limited eyes that I thought would be perfect for my little blind boy Haru. The photo above is the best one we’ve managed to get with him wearing them (if you press your face up to your screen and squint your eyes really good I swear you can see them). You can see them better in person. Like Tsuyoshi I went with size 12mm (I always like the smaller irises on all of my boys) and the irises are a sparkley (sp?) charcoal and the pupils are white. They are really pretty. I surprised by how much I love them. These are not the type of eyes I would get for my boys.

By the way, Jennifer is so right. Haru does look like he cuts his own hair at times (hahaha)

Next is shop talk…. blah blah blah, spam spam spam… ignore if it doesn’t interest you More»

Posting from my phone since the inter webs is being a pain. It seems that Verizon isn’t working in some parts of Baltimore City. Federal Hill happens to be one of them… its been out since last night (having some serious tumbr withdraw grrrr….). The phone has a crap spell check so I’m so sorry for the horrid spelling mistakes that are about to follow.

Back from neko. Had a wonderful time. Saw old friends and met new ones. Dizzy set us up next to Kelsey of EatToast (links will follow once the interwebs are working) which totally made the con a million times more fun. That meant that we not only had crazy times on the way up and back but also the entire time we were in the alley.

There was a fantastic tea party again this year. So many beautiful dolls and collectors. As for aa, there were some amazing artist. I went home with some fanastic pieces. Some of which were from trades and purchases (again links and photos to come because you really need to check these artist out). I also got to meet a wonderful collector who is a huge T&B fan who actually commissioned a sweater from me a while ago… I’ve only met a very small handful of my past customers (I was seriously excited to find this out and it was all by accident. Small world right?)

For now that is all I can say until the internet is back (this post is a lot longer than expected). I have to get stuff ready for the Merry Mart. This show is one of the few that I make human size knits and pieces for. Expect a huge update on etsy and some updates to the site (including a static page with commission info) Also, as of today sweater commissions are open. I managed to knit 2 dozen sweaters for Neko… you would think that I would be sick of sweaters right now… but that is seriously not the case. If there is one thing I concider comfort knitting it would be the sweaters. Your commissions are my stress relief so I give you all a big Thank You!
