|Lati Yellow Bayer Alice full-set with kitty, my birthday present!|
First, this will be the year of conventions. I'm very excited to say I'm already planning on attending some this year. If you haven't already registered for the IFDC, and while it's primarily a fashion doll convention, I will be teaching a seminar called Ball-Jointed Dolls for Beginners. Ms. Cholong of Boutique Doll (US Dollheart and Ruby Red Galleria rep) has ever so graciously agreed to provide some surprises for the seminar, and I'll be having some there, too. Please join me if you can.
Second, I'm going through my doll collections again. I'm hoping to piece together an article later today (or this week) about how I'd like my collection to refocus later today, but because it's mostly changing on the fashion doll side, I might be posting over at the Fashion Doll Review.
Third, I'm planning a project in a brand new format. It's about 80% complete. I'm hoping to make it multi-platform, so it will be accessible to most (if not all) of you. I'm still working on that part. It's a fun project--not really educational--more "artsy," if I dare use the term--and I'm planning on a launch date in the middle of February.
Finally, my second BJD-related book has a name: The BJD Enthusiast. Is there anything you'd like to see in it, specifically? I welcome your comments, particularly if you think the Beginners book was lacking in an area. This is not a revision--it will be all new material, including professional, step by step face-up instructions, which are fabulous!
I can't wait for another new year, and I hope to be posting more frequently to this blog!
