Over the past few weeks I came to the hard decision to reduce my doll family. I think this will lead to a more focused and relaxed feeling around my dolls. I had been feeling scattered. I would walk into my doll room - Yes have doll room! - and then walk back out, because my focus couldn't settle on one doll. This has been happening for a while, but I just put it down to needing to clean and organize that room. It's a smaller room and easily turns to chaos!
Indecision be no more!
I have taken the giant step of selling off dolls I never thought I would part with, to focus on the few. I know I am not alone in this, because I have noticed others doing the same. Maybe it's the fall season.
I have updated my hypers list - removed the two boys who are off to new homes. I will be totally boy free apart from my Dongha who makes such a good girl that she really is a girl now.
It will only be girl dolls from here on that come to my house! Also I am selling my Unoss and Unoa Lusis with makeups by Evenstar. They are both stunning, but again I need to reduce.
After they are sold I will review again. It's like a full time job just list, pics, answering questions and all the other things that go with selling doll stuff. I haven't even started on reviewing the spare eyes I should sell. I have wigs up for sale but I have many more I need to list!
I will be keeping my main hyper family. I don't think I will ever have a small doll family. I think these days a small family would be five or so, years ago around 2003 when the BJD's were just getting some interest, five SD's would have been a large family, but there were not many companies to pick from in thoes days. So much fewer to temp you!
I want to try for about 12 SD size dolls :)
My Lieselotte shipped today. I should get her next week along with my F07! what weird timing. This happens to me all the time. Dolls arrive really close together sometimes the same day, even with a few months wait periods. I am not sure if I will keep Lieselotte now, I will see what I think. With this serious crack down it seems silly to keep her when I have sold hypers. I think my Cricket (trying out the name :) wants her wig though!
My F07 is in the USA customs as I type. I can't wait to unwrap her. She is definately staying. I think this girl helped me to resort my doll family. I am sure the other dolls are going to be terribly jealous of her!
Here's a picture the seller took of my girl's side profile (F07)
