Last year Amelia asked for a dollhouse for Hanukkah. We didn’t get her one because we don’t really have the space. After a year of her asking for one we broke down and got her one and it’s giant.
We picked this one even though it is taller than her because it is called the Amelia Dollhouse and had no choice. It took me a full 5 hours to build and it was truly a Hanukkah miracle that I finished it before she was finished with school.
Now that my home is filled with tiny shoes and purses I need something to store it all in and I am thinking of purchasing this Barbie Store It All. At this point my daughter’s Barbie has more accessories than me.
When I was pregnant I had all these fantasies about what my daughter would be when she grows up and how I would help mold her. Now my goals are more simple… I want to raise her to be not an asshole. I found an article on CNN.com that gives some great tips on how to not raise a mean girl.
As an artist, I find the hardest part is to make money from it. I found this article by Amanda Palmer about art being a business thought provoking.
