"I am completely all over the place with my collecting. I have Barbie, Silkstone, Momoko, Gene, Tyler/Sydney, Tiny Kitty, Goodreau BJD, Pullip, Bratz, LIV, Dynamite Girls, Poppy, NuFace, Fashion Royalty, Monogram, Misaki, Vintage Ginny, and Antique Porcelain Head. And thanks to some special "friends" on the dollboards, I've been eyeing those Monster High dolls. Naughty ... Naughty .... Naughty!"
Here is how my collection has changed:
The purpose of focusing my collection was to lower my numbers and keep things more manageable. I'm not sure how it happened, but I seem to have purchased more than I eliminated! The bulk of my collection remains IT products. I'm trying to see where cross-collecting supports my hobby (doll lines that can share wardrobes). Recently a Poppy got into my Pullip's closet.
Papin wasn't about to have it! "I don't take things out of your closet. This is my stock ensemble and I don't have much else to wear! Stay out of my clothes!"
"Wait a minute. … You can wear my clothes … that means … YES!"
That's right! Papin figured it out all on her own. She started with Mood Changers. "Pink is my signature color, you know!"
"What about that weird chenille pantsuit? I think it looks fantastic!" (I do too! I actually think it looks better on Papin than Poppy, but don't tell Poppy that!)
And if I can wear Poppy, that means Dynamite Girls, Misaki, and some Barbie items works as well! "I'm tired of playing dress up. Get me in some jeans pronto!" Papin has a little attention problem.
"I want to go outside. It's a beautiful day. I want to check out the dogwoods."
This has opened up some serious play opportunities for me. I only have six Pullip dolls, but I'm afraid the floodgate has been lifted. Woe is me!
