Knick Knacks Forever

All of my life I have been an avid knick knack collector. When I was a little girl, I collected Precious Moments. When I was in middle school I collected Stephen King books, I had over 20 and had read more than half! In high school I collected records to hang on my walls.

These last six months I have started collecting vinyl dolls and then modifying them. You can see my first modified Yoshi on this post. My favorite dolls to search for and buy without modifying them are the Monster High Dolls. They're creepy and well styled and they aren't too common. I love going to Target and not finding one everytime, but once and a while I find one I have to have. 

So far, I have Ghoulia Yelps in Physical Deaducation. I loved her because she's got a little rockabilly style.

Recently, I bought C.A. Cupid because she is perfection. I saw in and couldn't leave her there. She was just too beautiful.

My favorite part is her beautiful lace detail legs. They are amazing!

I also love Funko vinyl dolls. They are simplistic versions of normal characters. I have a Stormtrooper, Rudolph, and a Mickey that I modified. You can see the Stormtrooper and Rudolph in the first two pictures.

Love and Turtledoves,

Help! I want to be a better blogger.

So as everyone can know by now, I am awful at posting! I get so caught up in procrastination from anything crafty or productive, that I ignore my blog more than I ignore the laundry. But it's not what I want. I want to be a great blogger and have internet friends and share my life with the internet.

And you know why I think I don't share as often as I wish I did? Because I think I'm boring! Here, in 'wonderful' Las Vegas, a good time is getting wasted and doing things you don't remember. To me a good time is sewing and watching United States of Tara and eating the AMAZING dinners my Mister makes me. I can feel that I'm letting other people get to me. I'm letting people tell me I'm boring.

The truth is I am not boring. I'm old fashioned and a home body and that's okay! I just need to accept myself more and do whatever the fuck I want!

And this blog is super ranty and run on sentencey so I'll end it with a new project!

I just got this sweet new watercolor brush that has water in it. Finally I am good at shading!
