- Alls Busy on the Dolly Front
- March 26th, 2011
I picked up the package from Volks (it went to my parents' house) yesterday -- it came on Tuesday, but between work and school I was to tired to do anything about it. I'm about to start on Tomás' faceup, since I got the arm parts swapped over last night. It was just as much of a pain as Cáit's legs -- it's like, do you want girly arms or boy arms already?
I also picked up a new piece of dolly luggage at Tuesday Morning today. I'm going to a dollmeet tomorrow, and I'm getting sick of lugging around weird sized boxes and containers. I think this should work pretty well. I need to fit Cáit, Tomás and a couple dolls/heads I want to sell. I have a Leeke Mikhaila on layaway, and the only way I'll be able to pay her off before the end of May is if I either sell stuff or do my taxes and use some of the refund (ok, well I'd do my taxes anyway, but I was planning on using most of that money for real life stuff so it would be better if I just sold things).
Oh right, back to the luggage. Luggage costs a ridiculous amount of money and most of it's really ugly. This was on sale, though, so it didn't end up costing more than a typical doll bag, only it will hold more people.
I need to make ears and a tail for Cinnamon (the Mikhaila) so she can be the third in a trio of cute frilly dress wearing mini sized werewolves. I think my interests in Japanese pop culture and horror flicks melded together in a really strange way with this one. I need to make Anna (my Volks Myu wolfy) a new tail, since the one she has is quite pitiful looking. Unfortunately, I haven't gotten to the fabric store yet because work and school are eating my brain and all my energy. My life is printing 24/7. I go to school for printing, I do homework about printing, I go to work and wrangle print materials (13 different brochures, 5,000 copies each + 1 creaser and 1 folding machine = bad news). Actually, I like working there -- it's a very nice atmosphere, it's just juggling that and a full time course load that's getting me. Quite frankly, I'm at the point where I really just want to work full time and be done with it. I wish they'd hire me on permanently -- I'd rather cut and crease a ton of brochures than take the next segment of print estimating next term : P
