An amazing four years ago today, I started a little blog that I called BlytheLife. Back in 2010, I wasn’t exactly sure how it would be received by members of the doll community, or if anyone would even want to read it. I was very pleasantly surprised at the reception that my little fledgling blog got – and at how much it has grown since then! I wanted to make a website to share Blythe with people, in the best way that I know how – through words, and bit of imagery. I started off the journey with a interview with Rob & Sioux. You may have heard of them before, they do some adorable bows (and some fantastic sassy fabrics too!).
My doll family has undergone some minor changes in year 4. I added one new Blythe, Minnow (Hi-Ho Marine), and one new Petite (Shrimp) to the family in November of 2013. Even though my family hasn’t expanded a lot, that hasn’t stopped me from enjoying the dolls that I have (or daydreaming about future dollies yet to come!). Blythe has maintained a special place in my heart over the years, and I’m so glad that I get to share them with you all.
Over the next year, a lot of changes will be happening – both offline and online for me. By this time next year, I will have completed my last year of nursing school and would have written the NCLEX exam. In year, a month and a handful of days, it will be time for BlytheCon Vancouver 2015 – the very first Canadian BlytheCon and I’m so excited to be one of the organizers for it! So there will be a lot of things happening behind the scene.
