World Doll Day- Word Art

I had an idea for World Doll Day, but it requires YOUR help! I was thinking of making a word art graphic that we could use on a t-shirt or other cool item for World Doll Day. There’s an example below that was created with my blog’s tags to show you what I mean.

What I want to know from you is this: If you had to describe doll collecting and what it means to you in ONE or TWO words, what word(s) would you choose? I want to use those words and see if we can make a cool graphic from them! Mixed in with your words, I want to put names of popular doll lines, like Monster High, Ever After High, Tonner, that sort of thing. Full disclosure, this may not work. It’s really all up to you guys to help me gather enough words to make a neat graphic.

If you’d like to submit a word or two for this little experiment, you can leave it here in the comment area, tweet me a reply @KewpieDoll83 or respond to my facebook post on the subject. Thank you!

World Doll Day is June 11th, 2016

Just a quick heads up! World Doll Day is June 11th, 2016! That’s two months from now, which gives you more than enough time to plan your World Doll Day. Whether it’s a small party with friends or something more involved, World Doll Day is what we make it. (So make it great!)

Last year, I wrote up a post with a few ideas of how you could spend your World Doll Day. Instead of repeating myself, I thought I’d link to that post again. Maybe it will help you in planning your World Doll Day! I’ll be honest, I have no idea what I want to do this year. Last year, this blog was lucky enough to celebrate with Lottie and offer an amazing giveaway. I don’t have anything planned like that just yet, but keep your fingers crossed and maybe a giveaway for World Doll Day will happen once again in 2016.

Do any bloggers out there want to work together and try to do something across all our site? If so, contact me! I’m not sure what we can do, but let’s brainstorm! We have enough time that our options are quite open. Non-bloggers, what plans are you working on to celebrate World Doll Day? Let me know in the comment area!

World Doll Day Tag– from Black Kitty of The Multicrafteral Lab

I was tagged in The Multicrafteral Lab‘s World Doll Day Tag!  In celebration of World Doll Day, BlackKitty asked those tagged to answer three things.

1: List 3 favourite dolls from the ones you got last year.
2: List 3 dolls currently on your wish list.
3: Tag 5 people to do the same thing! (Anyone with a home on the web, not just bloggers, can be tagged!)

And now, it begins!

1: List 3 favorite dolls from the ones you got last year

A Girl for All Time Lydia- Lydia is such a pretty, sturdy, well made doll. It’s hard finding something not to love about her!

Gentle Lilia Bride Kurhn- As you know, I love Kurhn’s. This was one of those dolls I had been pining for for a long, long time. She didn’t disappoint me in the least!

Maru and Friends Maru- I love the face sculpts on the Maru and Friends line. This Maru doll pretty much solidified the idea of me adding more to my collection.

2: List 3 dolls currently on your wish list

Barbie and Skipper Let’s Drive! Student Driver Giftset- This is totally a grail item for me.  What kills me is I remember it in the stores, but never purchased it due to the price.  If only I had known the price would eventually double!

Mystic Kids Lawrence BJD (SD, 62cm)- I’ve been eyeing this male SD BJD for a while now. I’ve always wanted to add a SD sized doll to my BJD collection, as well as a male doll.  This guy may be the one! I just have trouble with the price…  You can find a photo of this cool dude on The Junky Spot.

Last, but not least…

This Barbie Fashionista- How cool is this new Barbie Fashionista. Yes, the body is a total disappointment, but the prototype looks so cool!!!  I love the hair.

Toy Fair 2015- Mattel Booth (Barbie, MH, EAH)
