A Quick Heart to Heart

Q: A quick heart to heart? Why would you name your post something as cliche as that?

A: Because that's what I'm doing.

I am a photographer. I get very picky with the photos I showcase. I get very picky with other people's photography because it seems unfair to me that some people get dolls for free and sometimes before they're released, and they can't even comb the doll's hair. Or take the picture in good lighting. And they're mommy bloggers who do this for a living. Arg.


 {These are my photos of Zoe Elise} 
But I have to say that dolls are not my life. 
God is my life. No matter how much I love dolls, I love Jesus more.
Honestly, I like other things besides dolls.
I'm a Middle-earthian, Sherlockian {on Clearplay!}, writeress, pinner, blogger, reader, piano player, etc.


 I also might talk about my convictions about somethings that people bring up when talking about certain dolls{i.e. Julie or Shola}. It might get a bit controversial.
Now, I don't always take the best photos. I can't always be witty and cool in my writing. 
But I don't want to just post for the sake of posting {especially spelling words wrong, I hate that}. 
I want to post lovely pictures and inspiring words.
Not flaky misspelled posts. 
I won't be able to post every day, but I will try to make the posts that I do post worthwhile.
 

And that is my heart to heart.

Love,

Willow

End of Summer Update

Hello there, my fellow doll lovers!

Okay, let me cut to the chase.

I never actually did anything with the "Camp Doll Diaries" thing. I was intending to, but got sidetracked, i.e., we painted our house. Actually, let me correct that, we ARE STILL painting our house. Arg.

But I haven't gotten any new dolls. Yet. Emilie and Molly {and Saige} should be joining the Fellowship by the end of the year.

I have gotten a couple of new outfits.

Well, at least one. Saige's Sweater Outfit. And yeah, I want the one for girls. I tried it on. It's slightly small-ish, the arms are a bit short, but hey, it's cute.

I saw some of Saige's movie. And honestly, I didn't like it. The actress's "concerned" expression got on my nerves, like Chrissa's did in "Chrissa stands Strong". Shudder. And the acting was kind of middle-good.

But I want a Caroline movie. I mean, you learn tons about history!

But anyway....

I have a really cool secret-agent photo-story soon-to-be-set to go on the Spy-ness of Dollduction.

I really would like to do a "Mix-n-Match Monday" type thing. Because tons of people do not seem to know how to mix and match. And I will help them. Nuff said.
