I recently celebrated a birthday – I’m now 21 and can legally do all the legal-things a person can do in all countries (barring the ones where women are viewed as objects and whatnot, in which case I’m pretty sure I’d need to seek signed and notarized permission to breathe, let alone blog) which is pretty awesome. I’ve been “in” the Blythe hobby officially since I was 19 and purchased Sophie, my Cappuccino Chat, at a small little store that no longer exists.
For me, Blythe’s been a nice constant to have around. I love my dolls, I love sewing new dresses for them, knitting them things, crocheting things for them. I’ve gotten to know a lot of people because of Blythe, participated in some swaps, pushed myself to do new things (like picking up sewing again) and I opened this blog. Did I know what I was getting myself into? Not really. I genuinely sort of believed that I could only have one Blythe. I honestly thought that I would make all of my dolls’ clothing by myself (how wrong I was…). But I also thought that I would be one of those people with a gazillion pair of doll shoes and there’s actually nobody wearing shoes at the moment – not even me!
So if you wanted to share, I was wondering…
- How old are you?
- When did you start in the Blythe hobby?
- What thoughts did you have at the beginning that you now realize are wrong?
