A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away………………
NO, wait a minute, this isn’t Star Wars! This is my blog and I needed an update. A blogland blogger name update that is.
Way back when I first started blogging, I was primarily hooked on dolls of any shape or size, as long as they were teenagers or older. I’m not fond of baby or toddler dolls. So, I gave myself the name of The Lone Dollier. Being one of the very few people left within a 200 mile radius of me that was creating/costuming dolls (not counting reborns-ugh-sorry personal preference type thing I guess), I felt very alone. Also, I was new to the blogging community and didn’t realize it helps to have uniformity.
Now, I have expanded my horizons and I not only costume miniature dolls, I also go junkin’, collect paper ephemera, love anything vintage, create altered tags, and work with miniatures of all types. If you’ve noticed, I’ve even added a little tag line under the main name of my blog to reflect my expanding vision.
So, I’m thinking about a name change. In two other arenas, I go by Tarnished Rose. That’s my “professional” name if you will. I’m just kind of melding my Etsy shop name, my Twitter name, and possibly my Facebook page all together with my blogger name. I am now Tarnished Rose in blogland. I now have a name that better fits my likes; things that are tarnished, not new, but still have that beauty to it, things like dolls that I make that may not be your typical “pretty” dolls, but have their own beauty, altered tags that are slightly grungy, you get my drift.
For now, I’ll keep the name of my blog the same. Dolls, Etc., covers a LOT of ground and I do hope to get back to focusing more on dolls. Now that I have a NEW AIR CONDITIONER in my studio!!! YIPPEEE!
Now my studio is nice and cool once more!
