QOTW: Did Blythe lead you to other hobbies?

Sometimes I like to think back to what I used to do with my spare time before Blythe came into my life. And sometimes when I think back, I sort of draw a blank. I was 19 at the time, working away on my B.Sc, leading a very internet-centric life (such as now) and just working out this whole ‘being a grown up’ business (which I still haven’t quite mastered). I did knit and crochet before Blythe, but now I do teeny tiny items and I’ve written up patterns! for doll-sized items, which is always fun. Designing, for me, is a huge part of being creative with the hobbies that I already take part in. Even if I’m designing human-sized items, I still have a lot of fun and end up considering what it’d be like to redesign it in Blythe-size!

As it is, I now go through stores eying up things that may or may not be scaled correctly for Blythe, and have way too many other dolls (hello, Monster High…) that go along with the Blythe collection. And then all the photography! Pretty sure I got my first Blythe, and then my camera. Gosh, this has been a rather expensive hobby, hasn’t it?
