I have to apologise that I just can’t get my act together. I haven’t been sewing flowers, photographing clips, making pendants … any of the things I should be doing. I know I will make myself pull together soon, but right now I lack the motivation and the means. Mastitis, a rather nasty eBay dispute, not coping in general – it’s all these things – but mainly it’s the lack of sleep. I can’t blame Harry though, most nights he only wakes once. But I can’t sleep. I can’t relax. Today I have the rare occasion that both monsters are napping at the same time, and I’m so tired my eyes hurt, yet I still can’t sleep. And if I didn’t still have some meals prepared for me, I’m not sure I’d be eating half as well as I have been. Sometimes it seems life passes me by on Facebook.
I’m thankful for Blythe here. It’s been a pleasant distraction in an unpleasant time. I’ve been practising customising on Basaaks (Blythe clones) before I get a real Blythe to make my own. And it’s a good thing I did because I already broke the eye mechanism on a Basaak.
Here’s my newest work:
I guess this is very literally plastic surgery! She has been sand-matted, lips and nose carved, new eyelashes and new makeup. I’m really happy with how she’s turned out. I think I can tackle a real Blythe now – just have to find one to do!
BTW – Happy Chinese New Year for Thursday! Perhaps this would be my opportunity to try and turn a new leaf.
