I have to say I hate the Wizard of Oz.  I don't know if it was the flying monkeys or the stupid songs that made me dislike it as a kid.  I think my daughter is probably the only kindergartner that has never seen it.  In fact, someone made an "Oz" reference and I had to explain she has no idea what they were talking about.

With that said, I love Wicked.  Crazy, I know.

I love the "adult" version of Wizard of Oz.  It is just so magical and raw.  I read Wicked when I was expecting my daughter (6 years ago), but I stopped there.

Before Christmas I started listening to Son of a Witch.  I was a bit lost.  Now, I am playing catch up and listening to Wicked.

I get inspiration to name my dolls based on what I am reading at the time.  For example, Arvella is name for someone in the 1950s Henderson Board of Trustees minutes.


Now, I have an Elphie and a Nessa.  One maybe named Gilly, I am not sure yet.

Anyways, a little knitting update.

I have been struggling on my knitting lately.  I just can't think of anything I want to make.  I have been making some middie Blythe sized sweaters and mohair dresses for my shop, but that is about it.

Something about my shop-  I am planning to open up and additional Etsy shop in May.  I would do it now, but I just renewed a bunch of my craft listings.  It would really add up if I did not see them to the end.  The new shop will be strictly fabric, yarn, vintage sewing patterns, and vintage buttons.  I think mixing Blythe and Crafts is too junky.  I wish I would have thought of it last week when I was doing the renewing.

I am also hoping to develop some packaging ideas for my Blythe clothing.  Eventually, I plan to post some shop goals because I do have some.  Like, I use recycled packaging envelopes from my workplace to reduce landfill waste.

Stay tuned for other exciting statements like the one today.
