It's Been Far Too Long...

Hello all of my dear, patient friends...if any of you are still reading this and haven't given up on me. Yes, I am alive. Yes, I still love toys. Yes, I am still crazy busy and unorganized. Yes, I promise that the review posts I talked about last November (yeesh!) will eventually appear.

I don't have much time at the moment, but just wanted to pop in and say hello for all of those who have been wondering if I will ever post again. I'm quite disappointed with myself. I always wanted to keep blogging strong. I didn't want to be one of those blogs that slowly dwindled into oblivion. And yet, here I am, doing just that.

While my blogging has been pretty stinky, I've stayed active on Instagram. These days, that's the best place to find me. We're leaving for my daughters' annual combined birthday trip tomorrow, so there will be plenty of opportunities for toy shopping. Hooray! I'll be sharing pics from our trip as we travel, so you'll want to check it out. :) You can find me HERE.

I've also been trying to build up my writing blog. I even featured my newly acquired Shopkins Happy Places Cutiecorn in my latest post. ;)

I have a lot of projects going right now, from writing to illustrating to driving the girls back and forth to practices. All three girls were cast in a local production of "Annie Jr." ("Annie" with fewer songs and less dialogue). I'm so proud of them and thrilled that they have this opportunity. But also crazy busy. They have practices two to three times a week after school from now through the end of March. Needless to say, I won't have a lot of extra time over the next couple of months, so I hate to promise that I'll be back to regular blogging anytime soon.

Please know, though, that even though I'm not blogging about them as often, I'm still a doll and toy fan and collector. I love all of you and am so thankful for you. I'm sorry I'm so behind on responding to comments, but I do read them and love hearing from you. I'm hoping to get some responses up within the next week.

I'm not going to promise any upcoming posts, because I keep doing that and then failing to follow through. But I hope to have a "real" post up very soon. Until then, like I said, you can find me on Instagram and check out all of the fun pictures from our trip this weekend! :D I can't wait to visit Toys R Us and the Disney Store again.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
