So, last Wednesday I left for that conference in LA, and despite dreading the conference part, I actually had a good time, reacquainted myself with old friends, and learned stuff, which, after socializing, is pretty much the point of these conferences. Oh, excuse me, I suppose I should call the socialization thing "networking." Whatever.
Anyway, on Friday, batchix
and her husband came and rescued me. I had an absolutely amazing time. (and am eternally grateful to them for letting me crash on the most comfortable couch ever for the next three nights!) Saturday was the fashion district, full of fabric and the find of the weekend, which was a large piece of red leather. I'd really just about given up on actual leather and was going to go get some maroonish pleather stuff we'd seen earlier in the day, but when I found the leather and saw the price tag, I knew I had to have it. I see MJ's Thriller costume somewhere in my dolls' future. I'm not sure they're pleased about that, but they don't really get much of a choice. I still need to get a teflon foot for my machine and better needles, but that's no big deal to finding the perfect material. Anyway, after that bit of fun we headed over to Little Tokyo for cute toys, edamame, and desserts. Sunday we met doll_paparazzi
, and Wolfe over at Volks. (Of course I caved and bought a really cute DD party dress that fits Alyce perfectly and looks like a ballet costume as well as little white slippers with pink flowers and pearls. I have a weakness for white dresses and cute shoes, apparently. LOL!) We had lunch afterwards, and I missed saying goodbye to Christy because I apparently have very bad timing, but I'm really glad I got to meet her. That evening was spent geeking out over doll!things at Mercy's...
... and all of a sudden it was Monday and after shabu shabu, it was time to head out to the airport and go home.
I think Rogue had a good time too.^^
Especially once she got to meet doll_paparazzi
's Christian and play in his "house."
I just adore the Machina. sdink
