Please meet Laura...
|She's an inquisitive gal|
And that awesome hat? Maggi made that for Laura (Maggi is awesome!!).
Oh, and some new charms on her pulls, including this awesome green kitteh...
Maggi did an incredible job and I am so happy with how Laura looks now. She is much more photogenic and just seems to have so much more personality!
And (yes, I have more!) these are my other girls...

Why did I decide to collect dolls? Just cause! It's a great hobby, it gives me an opportunity to pursue my photography and photo editing hobby. In fact, since I started collecting dolls, I find my passion for photography coming back. I enjoy collecting these girls, naming them and giving them personalities. And yes, there have been a few people that are creeped out by it or find it odd. But guess what? It's my thing, I enjoy it and it allows me to be creative. I just enjoy it! End.Of.Story. & Get.Over.It.
I got the Blythe bug, so to speak, in May 2012, when my partner and I took a trip to the Carolinas to visit friends. One of those friends was Maggi, her husband Chris and their awesome kiddos. Maggi is a doll collector,too and in short, this is how I was introduced to Blythe. I was instantly drawn to her collection and just how much personality each girl seemed to have. Maggi is also quite talented when it comes to photography. Very soon (literally, hours after visiting her...), I had joined Blythe Kingdom and was trying to learn all I could (I still consider myself a "newbie" to the world of Blythe). In July 2012, I ordered Laura and the rest is history! Laura is my first Blythe (but not last!) and also first doll that started this hobby I am now into.
