We all saw 2020. Hay.

What a long slow grumbling terror of a year. What a humid rancid pile. And double the rage to the part of 2021 that's saying 'hey, it's not over yet'.


I'm going to try and be less negative now. But. You know. Loved ones lost and do I need to go on? It's enough to know loss. That's it then. So now we know in case we couldn't assume. What a slippery fungal inexplicably wet-when-it's-meant-to-be-dry dirty-dish-tub of a year. I, for one, am not celebrating a birthday this year (or rather, I'm celebrating my last birthday again). I think we all collectively get to pretend that this past year doesn't count.


To move on to BJD related stuff;


- I've not done much in the hobby this past year. Shocking, I know. I had been busy sewing things for my Etsy Store, but you know how it goes. I also moved (again), so my shit was packed up for several months while the whole 'moving house during pandemic' thing was sorted out.

- Youtube? I'd like to go back to making videos. I have very little time or space to do so at the moment. I was promoted at work this past year and thus had more responsibilities to take over. That, moving, covid, family, friends, whatever else. But yes, I would like to make videos again. Not sure I can do so with the same frequency, but perhaps I can do so with the same quality. Fingers crossed!

- As for the actual collection, once again, nothing has changed. My only possible update is that I finally put my old (2006? 2007?) Luts Delf body together. I still love those old bodies even though the visual outweighs the practical by quite a bit. This brings me to my next point.


What I'd really like to tackle this year (whenever I am able to start > that same month a year later, not necessarily 2021-22) is a rather large project, but one that could be fun and informative for folks in the hobby! I'm interested in purchasing dolls from various companies to do comparisons, body reviews, and so on. I thought it could be a great way for newer hobbyists to get acquainted with different companies and a way for interested parties to purchase a new doll at a discounted price. I'm not 100% sure how this would work yet, but I've saved a lot of money this past year from not doing anything ever and I've learned that since it can end anytime for any reason, you may as well not be miserly with your cash.
