Hi y'all! What a beautiful summer we've been having! A good friend of mine suggested I try Instagram, given my interest in visual images. I'm finding that it's a lot easier than blogging, because you can load photos from your day, life, and interests with or without text. Since it's all done with your cell phone, it couldn't be easier! So here's my Instagram link, in case you're interested in seeing what I'm up to: www.instagram.com/pdxjbear/.
I have a new interest as of the last few months: Petite Blythe dolls. I love how they have a bit of a Japanese manga look to them, and they fit in 1:12 settings beautifully. It's fun to make clothes for them too. :-) Speaking of clothes, a dear friend sent this darling outfit for my dolls. To see all of my dolls, look here.
See the tiny green plush bunny in the photo? Pepper of MitchyMooMiniatures sent him, along with four other adorable mini plushies, to thank me for a small gift I sent her. What a generous and talented person! If you want to see some amazing miniature scenes, look no further than Pepper's blog.
Speaking of gifts, I received some lovely surprise gifts at Christmas from Monica of Kitchen Miniature blog, Birgit of BiWuBaren on the Blog, Fabiola of Miominimondo blog, and Kikka of Pieni Sammakko blog. And the Christmas before last I received some lovely surprise gifts from Irina of Narina Napertaa blog that I completely forgot to mention. How embarassing! As they say, better late than never! Simona of Soft and Malleable blog also sent me some beautiful gifts. Thank you, one and all, for your very thoughtful presents!
I notice that a lot of bloggers are away this summer, so I plan to host my giveaway celebrating four years of blogging in September, when people are online again. I hope you all are enjoying your summer or winter, whatever it may be, and I look forward to seeing you here, on Pinterest, and on Instagram. Until we meet next, keep it fun! xoxo Jennifer
