Great News!

Hey Gang!

Great News!  I got a new job!  I am still settling into my new job and the work routine.  I haven't had as much time to post or to comment but I have had a little more cash!   I have a few things to pay off and pay down and then I will work on my WISH LIST!

So, I came home to the new Barbie catalog.  The new Tribal Beauty Barbie caught my eye.  I thought she was a new head but it is just one that I don't own yet!  I learned she is the Pazette head sculpt of 2012 that Stephen Burrows did last year. 

Mattel must have heard my complaints because they now list the head sculpt, body type, if the clothing is sewn on and if the lashes are rooted.  Now she could be  bald as a baby's bottom under that hat so I will depend on you other collectors to show me what is under the headdress.

High on my list is a FR Darius.  There are a few out there so I will have to decide which one.

Next on my list is a General Colin Powell.  My hubby to the one I purchase years ago.  Somehow he thought I got it for him.  So I just let it be.

I have four Power Team bodies with the large hands I have to replace.  I will work on more AA hands later.

After this, I will make a permanent display area for my dolls that I keep in boxes.  I don't have that many, so I am thinking I only need a shelf or two.  Even though I am not an Ikea fan I think it will mean a trip to Ikea!  I can count on hubby going along for that because he just loves that place!

After the display dolls are taken care of comes the big project!  The dolls that I play with (of which there are many) will need and organized accessible home.  They days of digging in boxes for lose dolls will be over.  Someone said if you really love something, you treat it with respect.  So that they will get!

Next will be an area where I can take pictures.  Right now it is the ironing board.  But I think I need a better setup.  That is when I will purchase lights.

Then will be the hunt for the dark tone FR bodies and dolls.  They are on the list after lights because those items will need good light.  I couldn't take the photo below with the setup I have.

This girl is to hot!!!!

Two other things that will be needed but not on the list because they will be used for more that dolls are a new camera and computer.

Thanks for Looking!

Tracy India said...

I could have sworn I left a Congrats comment post. :( Well, Congrats to you on your new job and I LOVE the wish list.

Ms. Leo said...

Thanks for your comments and good wishes Sergio, Sarai, Carrickters, dbg of BDE, limbe dolls, Marta, Vanessa, Male Doll World, Mustiwait, Brini, Barbiecafe, Georgia Girl and Tracy India!

Sergio, I am planning a great doll year! Stay tuned!

Sarai, Estoy muy emocionado por el aspecto de esta nueva muñeca. Yo no creo que vaya a ser difícil encontrarle un cuerpo poseable tampoco. Me encanta la primera muñeca demasiado pero sé que la búsqueda de un cuerpo oscuro poseable será difícil.

Carrickters, I hope to have extra cash to do more doll related things. I want to go to a convention next year.

dbg of BDE, I think the economy is turning around. I have been selling more things in the last 6 months than I did in all of 2010, 2011 and 2012! We need the economy to come back!

limbe doll, I am happy for the new job. I be ready for some wigs soon too!

Hello Marta, I will start window shopping for the camera and computer now. I want to know a good deal when I see it. I am starting to think about how I want things to look too!

Vanessa, You know they are. They have thier own list too!

Male Doll World, Thanks! You will have to share with me where you purchased some of those interesting dolls you have!

Mustiwait, Wouldn't that be like Mattel to put molded plastic hair under the headress! LOL!

Brini, Tell your son to hang in there! I really think things are happening!

Thanks Barbiecafe! I hope to share pictures of some of my fun.

Georgia Girl, My wish list is my motivation for getting to the bus stop on time now that my car is down! I see Darius on the bus with me! LOL!

Tracy India, I didn't see a previous message but I am glad you posted! We all need our dreams!

Congrats on the job! I'm excited you will be getting some space to display your dolls and creations. I recently did that with mine and I love it. It's so fun to sit and look at all of them. :) Be sure and post pics when you get the displays done!
