So, yeah. Those eyes were the secret project (the irises are made of little chips of turquoise stones, which look kind of watery and sparkly with the gloss on top)#bjd #bjd eyes
I actually put my dolls away for a couple weeks, but tonight I’m working on a secret project. The above picture is a hint.
It’s not a really significant project, and probably not super fabulous, but it’s something I find fun. Because this hobby was being especially un-fun for a while and I was considering just leaving my dolls in their boxes forever. This is me taking them out and hoping I feel more need to keep them out.
We need bees. Need them. The petition linked to below is hoping to ban nicotine-based pesticides (called neonicotinoids) is the USA. Neonicotinoids have an affect on bees that leaves them confused and they forget where their nest is, so they fly around until they die of exhaustion. Bee colonies exposed to these nerve-agents produce up to 85% fewer queens, resulting in up to 85% fewer bee colonies. Some species of bees are already going extinct, and many other pollinators (including butterflies) are also suffering from the use of such pesticides.

Uh, yeah, a year’s rent for me is over $6,000. Probably closer to $7,000, I don’t even know—but that’s the lowest rent available in my area. Maybe it’s different for you, but I haven’t ever seen a doll even listed for that much. I don’t think anyone could afford that, and most legit dolls really aren’t even as much as one month’s rent for me. I have no idea where you’re finding dolls that supposedly cost so much.
Oh shit there are witches in this hobby. I wonder if they casted a hate spell on me yet lmao.
Let me get this straight: somebody confesses about being kicked out of their group because of a misunderstanding about their religion, people clarify that Wiccans don’t usually hex people, and you decide to mock their religion because “hurr durr curses” anyway? I get that Wicca is a very misunderstood religion, but please don’t be a dumbass and make fun of people for their beliefs—especially when it’s been established that the stereotype you use is generally not applicable. What you think is “right” could sound totally ridiculous to somebody else.

Wait, so you literally only mixed up the heads because one was a legit? Am I missing something? I’m not even going to try to think of a reason why somebody would do that, because it’s seriously not okay. Somebody paid youto paint their doll, trusting that they would get their head back, and you just decided you would “punish” them by taking their head and switching it with somebody else’s? Doesn’t that technically count as stealing on some level? Fraud? It certainly isn’t fair, and not a very mature thing to do. What if the heads don’t match the bodies and the two find out?
Actually, you know what? If this confession is true, I hope they find out. I hope they both find out and get the chance to get the proper heads back, I hope they tell the community what you’ve done so everyone can avoid your scamming ass. I hope something is done about it and that nobody else is subject to your childish “judgement”. Anyone who would knowingly do that to people doesn’t deserve business.
Kay, so, Lorti’s left the hobby. I don’t know what’s been going on with her and when, but apparently she’s been getting “hate”? Are you kidding?! The woman has nothing but endless praise going for her! All I see publicly about her are just people wishing she’d keep her dolls longer, which isn’t hate, it’s just a regular opinion.
I dunno, I’ve seen a few confessions that veered into that whole “for the love of god just stick with a doll already, if you ‘love’ them so much” area of meanness. Plus, apparently people were even going to her personal email and being rude. I’m sad to see that she’s been chased away by those people, but maybe it will be good for her to get away from them for now. Nobody deserves to be harassed or bullied, and I hope that she can find some peace from it now.
