QOTW: Have you ever moved with Blythe?

BlytheLife Headquarters (a name I just made up for what is essentially my bedroom) is moving! As I contemplate the changes in my life and the changes to come in 2016, I must admit that I was at a bit of a loss for how to pack my dolls. Because BlytheLife HQ is not moving very far, my dolls and my doll stuff (clothes, furniture, shoes, stands, etc.) will be traveling in my car. This honestly gives me the peace of mind that I don’t have to imagine my dolls bouncing from wall to wall inside of a moving van because that idea just gives me nightmares to think about opening a box and finding dolly carnage. Luckily, because I’m not moving very far, I’ll be able to transport my dolls safely in the backseat of my car, and their belongings (of which there are many) in the trunk. Despite what is a considerably “easy” move, I still baby my dolls. Any dolls that don’t have their own carrying case (I use SewPixie carry bags) are safely wrapped up with some soft fabric (a.k.a. t-shirts – bonus, I’m packing some of my clothes in the meantime!). Nonetheless, I know it’s an easy move compared to some other moves that people have made with Blythe.

Have you ever moved with Blythe? How was that experience?

    I like your idea of wrapping dolls in tshirts. The fabric will have been washed several times so there’s less chance of staining.
    I’ll tell you what happened to me: A friend was helping me pack and she had finished what I asked her to do so she started packing my dolls without my permission. Imagine my horror, opening the box to find she’d wrapped them in NEWSPAPER, causing them to be permanently tattooed with upside-down and backwards writing on the torso and face. :(

    Congrats on the move! Hope all of the dolls stay safe!

    We recently moved house (a 4 hour trip) and fortunately I still had all my girl’s original boxes and packaging. So, back into their boxes they went and then I put them into larger boxes. My hubby was in charge of the removal van, so he was under strict orders to make sure they were handled with extreme care (which he did). The poor things are still in their boxes for now, but I’m happy they’ve made the trip safely :)

    I have original boxes for my girls, so I have packed them in those when we’ve moved (and, like Jane, put those boxes into the shippers and then into larger moving boxes). I did use plain white cotton tea towels to protect their faces, just in case!
