Hello and welcome to my doll journal on LJ! My main one is on Dreamwidth, called teenythings, but everything posted there gets automatically x-posted here, so you won't be missing anything if you only journal on LJ. I read the friendpage on this journal far more often than DW because there's more community activity over here!

I go by Sadie online, but my actual name is Laura, so occasionally I'll interchange the two but I'm the same person. I'm a doll enthusiast, if you couldn't tell by the majority of my journal content, so if you're into Monster High, Moxie Teenz, and other various dolls and similar-type stuff go ahead and add me! I'll probably add you back. I'm also plural, but if you don't know what that is don't worry about it. I simply enjoy keeping company with fictional characters on a regular basis.

(If I've bought something from you or you've bought something from me and you wish to leave feedback, this post is fine. :) I'll unscreen it as soon as I get an email and leave it intact.)

Wow, LiveJournal's really changed since the last time I tried to use it. It took me ten minutes to figure out how to send messages (and now there's a daily limit of like, ten), and another five minutes to figure out how to make a post!

I wonder if the site manages to crash every weekend still. ;)

Anyway, I still do stuff with dolls (still obsessed with Kurhn), spend way too much time on Tumblr, and still live in Maine (ugh).

I've been really into Flight Rising for the past year, so if you're a member on there shoot me a message! I'd love to add you. :)

Popping in out of the blue because this seems like the best place to ask...

What are your very favorite Halloween/autumn/spooky-themed Tumblrs?

Flood me with links! :D

I modified a Barbie dress for Maudlynne.

In white

She doesn't fit typical Barbie clothes, mind. This dress came from listing with several handmade items. I think it'd be really big on a Barbie, as it fits her perfectly. The snaps close nicely in the back.

White isn't really her color, but I think she enjoyed getting out of her red dress for a bit.

I'm going to buy her some Minifee clothes when I have money for them.

I'm going away to Tolkien in Vermont with Jodi. :) We're leaving just after lunch and should arrive at her hotel by this evening. Thankfully this won't be a detriment to my schoolwork, as classes have only just begun and I've already completed my Module 1 assignments.

Our room will have wired internet. I'll be around to say hi at various points.

Hopefully I'll be able to snag lots of pictures! :)

If you've been waiting for a sale to pick up Tonner's Maudlynne, this is it! :)

Kalli gifted me $6. I had to get her. *-*

She'll be my first Tonner doll!

Trigger warning: not for the dentally-squeamish.

A couple years ago someone (innocently, mind) asked why I didn't 'just sell some dolls' to cover the costs of a dental procedure.

Here's the thing:

I own like.. three 'collector edition' dolls. Besides those three, my collection is considered 'play-line' meaning, generally, they're not worth all that much. I might make roughly what I originally paid for them, but then again I might not. Chances are they'd sit on eBay as '$14.99 + $6.50 shipping' Buy-It-Now listings for weeks.

Never mind the hassle of boxing things up and getting them to the post.

So.. don't bother suggesting it, to me or any other doll enthusiast. True, there's other people out there with 'valuable' dolls, but their owners bought those dolls because they love them, not because they wanted them for resell value.

(And then there's the people who actually did buy them for resell value, which is an entirely different ballpark. Either way, don't judge.)

That said, I had one of my teeth decide to partially crumble away today. x.x It's not the first time this has happened, either! I was terribly unhealthy back in high school. I drank a ton of soda and brushed my teeth.. basically never. I flossed, but brushing's important too. (And the only reason I flossed was because I had a package of floss-picks in my desk drawer. I've maintained that habit, as it's one of the few beneficial things I consistently remember to do.)

I'll probably have to go to the dentist! The cheapest option will be having the tooth pulled. I'm stoked, can you tell? At least extractions aren't exorbitant around here. I might be looking at $80-ish.

Woot.

Needles, drills, and yuck exist in my future. Thanks, high-school-me.

So...

If I were to make a project (story-progression) for one of my dolls...

Who'd be interested in reading it?

I'll start out with just one doll (1/6th scale) because I tend to get overwhelmed with my projects, even if they're 'fun.' So, one doll initially, with occasional visits from other dolls.

Besides the fun aspect, I want to expand my photography skills, play around in photoshop, and write. Writers need to write things, and I haven't been doing nearly enough of that (outside of my English class, anyway). Who knows, it might even inspire me to get back into sewing!

Right, sound off!

Thanks to school pushing me beyond my capacity to deal, I got myself a doll.

I've wanted this Jasmine for ages, and I had $20 sitting in PayPal.

She'll arrive in the mail within a few days! I can't wait! :)
