So I moved this summmer.  Yay for me!  I am back in sunny Hawaii  where I call home.  Living here is hard sometimes.  I admit I am struggling to survive for the moment.  BUT...damn I am actually happy and learning that not having a lot can be good sometimes. It opens up  other creative avenues.   Like everyone else, I want a lot from my life .  For my hobbies I want a lot too.   I am still fortunate to have all my dolls.  I doubt I will ever sell any.  I actually have plans to continue building my cast and writing their stories.  What I want to do now that I started  my life over so to get  a few more things going with my  chosen art forms. So here are my goals and the reasons for them.

~ Gift myself with a DSLR camera -  I am not the greatest photographer and my artistic eye is  sort of limited, but.....I used to take some cool shots with an slr camera  long time ago.  I love my  current digital but I miss the  manual control.

~Take  better pics of my dolls for photostories - look up lightboxes and  different tutorials for  background scenes.  I tend to  make a  small corner or more,in the house,  the location(s) of offices bedrooms etc. Result is  dolls all over the house.

~Learn to make  more of the props I want for my dolls - I love the idea of polymer clay foods.  Most I have found however, are  much too small to be considered scale for my  larger dolls ( my Hounds and such sizes.) I found some great tutorials here  in Deviant and that sparked a serious wish to attempt  the art.  I will post my attempts here when I am  proudest of the result.  Not a perfectionist but darn close.

~ Post a tutorial or more on making certain props/furniture/clothes - A lot of my  props/clothing collected over the years are in storage until I can afford to ship them from the mainland.  In the meantime I need some and I found that using everyday materials is a great way to recycle and inexpensively create at the same time. I think it would be good for  some of the younger bjd owners with limited  resources.

~Start showing off my sewing - I don't always buy clothes for my dolls.  It has to be something  that I  doubt my skills in making for me to buy it or  so absolutely  wonderful and right for the doll I am thinking of.  Again I would like to show ways to create something wonderful inexpensively and still quality.  

Well those are a few of my goals
