I am so lucky!

Today has been a FANTASTIC day! It was just one of those super fun very high spirited days where everything goes right and you feel all special inside. Ok... so it helped that I got a Sailor Moon wand in the mail today.. (hahaha) but that's not the only reason I'm so giddy right now. Seriously. I have some AMAZING friends and I just wanted to say "thanks guys!". I don't know what I'd do without you always making me smile all the time. I know it's lame... but I don't care. I love you guys! ;)

First off I'd like to thank Judi of EKRdoodle Vintage! She is one of my teammates and fellow leader on the Vintage Toy Addiction team I'm a part of on etsy. She has a very cute little toy shop and it's been so much fun getting to know her on the team. A few months ago she sent me some doll heads to play with and I thought it was just the sweetest thing ever! I have yet to "play" with them yet, but I know I will put them to good use soon enough. Aren't they fun??

Next I'd like to thank the oh so lovely Tricia of Morbid Midget's World! Tricia is like the coolest! We met thanks to etsy and I eagerly look forward to frolicking with her around Virginia. She makes the most amazing creepy dolls I've ever seen! And her specialty is "moving parts" which provides a whole other level of eerie to each one. ;) Several months ago I sent her one of my weirdo dolls and she's been working on making her into a funky little monster for me ever since. I can't wait to see how she turns out! I know it's going to be mind-blowingly awesome, if only I weren't so impatient... (teehee). In the meantime, she just sent me a bundle of little fun things to play with. I loved her funny little notes too. I was giggling like a little kiddo in the post office when I opened it. sigh* you know me so well girl! ;)

I'd  also like to thank my newest friend Lisa of Loved Once More Vintage! She is also on the Vintage Toy Addiction team and has a super cute little vintage toy shop on etsy. I've had a blast talking with her about flea market adventures, toy identifications and all kinds of stuff! She is a super sweet lady and I'm so glad to have met her. A few months ago, my toy shop on etsy Sinsperations wasn't doing so well. I was making very few sales per month and was really down about it. And what did Lisa do? She sent me a super cool vintage Ghostbusters board game booklet! It put such a big smile on my face. I totally want to hunt down the pieces of this game so I can play it. It looks like a lot of fun!!

And last but not least I'd like to thank my good friend Denise over at Wicked Alterations! Denise makes everything from jewelry to art boxes in her little etsy shop. She has a thing for Halloween and skeletons, but like to play with toys in her art as well. Can you see why we've become such good friends now?? Anyways, Denise sent me a box of My Little Ponies recently "just cause" and it made me SO happy!! I'm going to have so much fun with these!! Besides.. you can never have too many ponies. Plus, I got an Asian boy as a bonus! How cool is that??

Anyways, now that I've got all my "lameness" out I'm going to craft my little heart out. It's been so very long since I've done that so I know I'm going to go bananas over here! ;)


  1. Awww thank you Allison--reading this made my day! I am glad you are having one of those great magical days. I love days like that. Reading this made me so glad I decided to sell on Etsy because I have met sweetheart of people like you. Pet you three lovely kitties for me and have fun with your crafting!:-)

  2. How do you get all this free shit :O seriously awesome!!!

    1. She gets it because she kicks ass and people love giving her presents :)

  3. You are so awesome :) I'm just sorry your dolly and panda aren't done yet! We haven't had time to do anything but edit lately...haha! Things should calm down after we get back from the Living Dead Festival and I can finally finish your babies :) I can't wait to meet you in person and go around town with our creatures and of course a video camera...haha!
