kittytoes: (Kat doll)

I made a blog post! Not too deep, just a recap of what I've been up to. Sometimes it helps to take a moment and realize I have actually  been checking things off of my list...

I really do intend to blog more. I feel a unsure of my audiences and I want to keep it an open space for my art but also maybe babble about dolls? I dunno. I miss doll babble in general.

Things here are quiet and Spring feeling. We spent Saturday with my parents and that was really nice. They invited us out to dinner and a movie.  The Jungle Book is very good! And I generally don't go for 1.Disney 2.computer animation 3.animal movies so that's saying something. They did a very good job of making Shere Khan terrifying and keeping the animals pretty animal-y. King Louie was odd though. No medical news about Mom, yet.

I spent the afternoon at a friend's house and we had a lovely lunch and chat and it woke me up a bit. This weather has everyone peeping out their doors and stoopin' or meeting up in the park with a bottle of wine. All good things. I feel like I need to start making regular dates with friends. Now that the kids do their own thing, I don't see the momma pals often enough and time keeps getting away from me. It's almost May! I'm not sure how.

I need to buy some cloth napkins and I want to buy some ceramic tumblers from my other momma pal. I need to up my summer hosting game.

Nothing else. I got a new shirt for tiny Mat that is exactly the sort of shirt actual Mat wears all the time. And tiny Kat has new pants like a pair I have an new hair like I have and they have tiny phones now so they can worry about trying to stay "in the moment" with each other. :P Did you know the grey in Mat's beard are from the real thing?? I'm so gross.

Happy Wednesday. Come over. Bring a doll.

Ha! Because when a grey beard hair falls out, I make him save it for me? Thank you for also being a weirdo. <3

I've always loved your dolls and your seeing your creativity with them . . . love the tongue in cheek humor. :D

Ha!! I love those dolls!
I was wondering about the jungle book! I have similar issues that you listed. And Disney hasn't been my cup of tea lately.

Spending time with people and casually hanging out and chatting is my favorite thing! It really recharges your batteries!

Thanks!

Yes, it wasn't my idea to go and I was *very* skeptical, but it really was well done. I think the voice cast was well chosen also.

Yes! It does!

Ahh, I love seeing Tiny Kat and Tiny Mat, and I love the behind-the-scenes story for that photo!

I hate to be That Person (tm) but technically speaking the wee sleepy dragon is called "Dragon Scales" or possibly "Troublesom". The Aileen Doll website was kind of vague as to the official name, listing it as "Troublesom - A Dragon Shy's Scales" or something. :p

Shy is the yellow dragon here:

Thank you again for painting my little critters!

Thanks for the correction! I always forget doll names even when they are easy to find, ha.
