I'm Still Alive...Really! ;)

Hey guys!  Sorry that I kind of dropped off the face of the earth this week.  It was just one of those weeks.  I'm planning on doing another "real", non-Frozen related post for you tomorrow, so you'll have that to look forward to. ;)

Speaking of Frozen, I have now mailed all of the prizes out to the thirteen winners I drew, so the contest is officially over.  Thank you again to everyone who participated in that and the blog party.

This next month or two my goal is to get a bit more organized with my blogging.  I have literally 100 posts in draft for Never Grow Up right now, which is slightly embarrassing. :}  On the plus side, I don't have to think about what I should post about! ;)  Anyway, I'd really like to start making some headway through those so I don't feel so behind. ;)

I'm also determined to make sure that Tess and Maggie figure out what they're doing with their blog.  It's highly unprofessional to go without posting for almost four months.  I'm sure poor Tess is beside herself with embarrassment.  Maggie probably doesn't care that much, but you know how she is. ;)

I will also try to remind Belle that she did kind of promise her readers that she'd post a few updates on her Facebook page, and that has yet to happen.  I know going from one to three kids in the space of a day has to be a bit crazy, but it's been long enough now that she should be able to manage a Facebook post or two every once in a while. ;)

Finally, I have a gazillion emails to catch up on.  Every time I get caught up on emails, I think, "Okay, this time I'm going to be more organized and answer them as they come, or have a designated day each week to answer emails, or something!"  And inevitably, my good intentions go right down the drain, and the next thing I know, I'm back to being horribly behind.  One of these days, my creative side will learn to work with my perfectionist's desire for organization.  I hope. :}  Thank you all for your patience with my flakiness.

I guess that's about all for now.  Nice to chat with you all.  I'll be back with something more interesting than my random updates tomorrow. ;)

Oh, poor you, swamped in drafts! And I was feeling bad about having 5... It's a pity your dolls can't actually write, a helping hand would be very welcome! Sorry you have so much on your head. I appreciate even more taking your precious time to leave that nice comment on my blog. Good luck clearing your mail box! (^^)~

I'm going to an AG and Disney store!(I'm on spring break)

beastsbelle said...

Thanks, BlackKitty. I'm trying to look at it as having lots of almost ready-made posts waiting for me, but sometimes it's hard to think of it that way. :}

I was happy to stop by and leave a comment. :) A blogoversary is always a momentous occasion! ;) And I meant what I said...I always appreciate my comments from you. I'm only sorry that I don't have the time to leave more comments on people's blogs like I used to. :(

Congrats, Anonymous! Have a wonderful time!! :D

Ohhh, do I ever feel your pain! Okay, I'm not ever at the point where I have 100 ideas of what to write about, but I do have a running Word document that has 3-4 drafts going (most of which are drafts of projects I haven't even started working on!). Add in the bit where I'm trying to look for a new job, and...well, it's April and Felicity's still in her Christmas gown! And every time I think I'll catch up some evening, I end up facedown in bed, fully clothed, fast 8:30. :D So, yeah - just chiming in to say I know where you're coming from! Hang in there!

Thanks, Jen! Nice to know I'm not the only one! :}

I'm back from the AG and Disney stores(I'm the same Anonymous as before), and I got Caroline's travel outfit, a classic Rapunzel doll, and a classic Beast/Prince doll. I'm so excited!

beastsbelle said...

Congrats! Sounds like you found some great goodies! :D

Again, the same Anonymous as before(sorry to bombard you with comments) but how does Rapunzel's knee work?

beastsbelle said...

Hi worries! ;)

Rapunzel's knee should just bend. Unfortunately, the leg joints on the DS dolls can sometimes be crooked and every once in a while will not work properly.

The Disney Store does have excellent customer service, so if you're having a problem with her, I would definitely call the customer service number on's website, explain the situation, and see what they say.

Hope this helps! :)
