The Mr.and I had a lovely time at the Baltidoll meet this afternoon. I got to spend some awesome time with some very creative collectors. There wasn’t a person there who wasn’t working on some kind of project be it either for themselves or their dolls. Great conversation. Lauren gave me a kickass handmade Katamari bracelet and two beaded doll size bracelet (which I want to keep for myself as rings but Mizuko is fighting for at the moment). We also traded some interesting items. I brought my thorns while she had her rat bones. Seriously, what an awesome find. I’m going to make some jewelery with the ones she gave me as well as see if I can cast a few pieces (one being a complete lower jaw that she managed to get). I’m going to experiment at first with a thicker bone before going on to the delicate jaw. Cross fingers that it works.

The next meet should be the DC Sakura Matsuri next month, followed by another sunday meet at Koba. I finally found my DC meet map last night (no joke, it took me all week to find and it was in a place I should have checked first… too obvious). I was going to start the thread this evening but my brain is mush for the day. Luckily I’m off all day tomorrow.

Before I go here is a picture of Piere that I took yesterday afternoon(the Japanese spelling of Pierre… don’t know why he was named this. Yoshi insisted… I think he feels it makes him sound more sophisticated).

Piere is a blue guinea pig and a gift from Kotori (wcdragon aka captainschlumpy). Kotori’s rule is to always give a gift when you meet a new Yo sized friend for the first time. What a lovely thoughtful boy. Piere was handfelted by Jennifer and so cute. It’s hard to see in this photo but she even left a tuft of hair on his head. Yoshi-kun’s little group of friends isn’t so little anymore. Between the teddies, Piere, Usagi-chan and a little bunny that will be coming soon Yoshi can never say that he’s lonely.
