Richi wants me to help her post a blog every week for 2015. I don't know if there will be a theme or just a random picture and blog every week. Now, I need to choose a day to put on my calendar to remind myself each week.

Mama and I are both writing for Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month ). Papa said that since I am so little I would only need 500 words for the month instead of 50,000.
"That's only 17 words a day or a Haiku per day."
This is my Day 1 Haiku:
Tiniest of Fae
Creating a brand new world
Is the job too big?

What are some things you do while you wait for your doll or doll things to come in?
I make and buy clothing and collect props for the incoming doll. I usually start a box or trunk with things just for the incoming doll.
If money wasn’t an issue, what would be your dream doll to have and why?
I decided that it wasn't to be until I saw an Orient Doll Tae, pictured next to a Hound. I fell in love and then found out that they were out of production. That began my search. I finally found my Tae, Girard.
What fantasy creature would you like to see as a BJD?
A Nekomimi (catgirl) with a mature body under 16cm tall.
What is your favorite place to buy BJDs? Is it a certain brand’s website? Or is it a retailer like Denver Doll Emporium?
#5: Dolls in public
Would you, or do you ever take your dolls out into public? If you do, where do you like to go?
Do you prefer to buy your dolls things? Or make them?
Do you prefer factory or custom faceups? Do you do your own doll’s faceup?
I enhance company face-ups and do my own faceups on my 16cm and below dolls. I only send out dolls to be done if I can't do it myself. Mostly, my Planet Doll tinies have custom faceups.
How do you choose your names for your dolls?
Richi is named from my on-line name Richila. Most of my dolls have a concept that I research on www.behindthename.com I have three dolls that are named Rose, my favorite flower, in three different languages.
Is there a particular size that you cling to? Which one and why?
Have you ever had people tell you that they are creepy? Have you ever been creeped out?
Dolls with teeth are scary.
No one that matters has ever said my dolls are scary. Most people find my dolls amazing or adorable-especially the Micros. 5cm tall and double jointed is very impressive.
How many dolls do you own? Do you have a max limit (or have you already exceeded this)?
Have you ever ordered something and it either didn’t fit or just wasn’t what you expected?
How do you bond with your dolls? Do you bond at all or do you just marvel at their beauty?
#14: Selling dolls
Would you ever sell one of your BJDs?
Do you own dolls with different skin tones?
My dolls have different skintones, but most of them are natural- no fantasy colors.
Do you have any friends with BJDs? Have you managed to “convert” anyone?
Yes and yes
What are your favorite types of eyes?
I love Dreaming Tree Studio eyes. They are the eyes in all of my 16cm and smaller dolls.
A lot of dolls have a specific style in which they are dressed. What style you like to dress your dolls in, and do they ever change styles?
Most of my dolls have a somewhat distinctive style. Once I figure out a style, they usually stick to it with minor variations. Also, some styles evolved as my sewing skills got better. The only doll who didn't follow that rule is Cordie-who has had 4 different body types before settling on her current body.
In this hobby you sometimes have to compromise. When it comes to your dolls, do you go for pretty or poseable?
Do you hide things in your doll’s head or body?

Sometimes it takes a simple change to make you do things differently. My change was a new phone big enough for me to see easily, but even better I can handwrite with my stylus. Somehow cursive makes it more likely that I will blog. I have missed writing longhand - I spent a long time learning and using it . The screen on my phone has also changed my mind about my e-reader of choice. I own a Nook, but I prefer the Kindle app. With a bigger better screen, I am back to Amazon and Kindle.

I didn't realize that I would have to wear the yellow torture device more than once! Mama said it was better, but not good enough. Maybe I can get her to make me a little silk scarf. At least it wouldn't be as heavy as the yellow thing.
Hi, Richi here under the yellow torture device. Mama says we are "training" my bangs to lie down flat. According to Mama, she spent a lot of her childhood with a scarf wrapped around her bangs to make them lie down flat. I rather like my wild hair, but Mama insisted. She wants me to look neater for the weekly pictures.

This is my okapi, Pi. I thought long and hard and Pi just seemed to fit. One of Mama's favorite books of all time is Life of Pi. She read it with Xander for a school project when he was in 9th grade.They bought in hardcover and still have it on the bookshelves. Mama has never seen the film because she doesn't want to be angry if they got it wrong.

Hi, it's Richi! Today we are at school with Mama. Yesterday Myri and i spent the day in bed. We were exhausted after running errands and then helping Mama do a photo shoot with Cordie and Ikuto. I got a notice that my Okapi has been mailed. I hope it gets here soon.
Until later, your friend,

Hi Richi here. Myri and I went to Bible study with Mama and then out running errands.
I liked Bible study. All the ladies made a fuss over us and how cute we are. I thought that we would actually go in the store, but instead Mama crocheted in the car and Papa went shopping without us. All we could do was watch and wait. We did get to go in Barnes and Noble with Mama and Papa, but Mama said that there were too many small children running about for us to come out. I like the White Rhino better.
Until later, your Friend,

Hi, Richi here!
Myri and I had a great time at the White Rhino. Myri had a cappuccino, but I had cocoa. Mama wasn't sure how I would respond to caffeine in the evening.Maybe next time I will get to have coffee, too.
Until later, your friend,
Hi Myri this time! Richi and I had a very nice lunch together. I usually have lunch with Mama every day, but it was really nice having lunch and talking to someone my own size. I am going to suggest to Mama that Richi comes with us everyday. I think it will be a lot of fun. I was disappointed last year that Romy didn't want to travel, but Richi likes to travel.
P.S. Richi here-Mama said we are going to a coffeehouse after school. I can't wait!
I found exactly what I wanted and Mama bought my okapi for me. I can't wait until it arrives. The artist is even sizing it especially for me since I am a little smaller than Myri.
Until later, your friend,
Hello everyone! My name is Richi. I just got home last night. Mama had hoped for me to arrive by Christmas, but I decided to tour the US instead of coming straight here from Indonesia.
Today I got to go to school with Mama and Myri. Myri even let me cuddle her unicorn until I get a stuffie of my own. I will write again soon.

I love my puppy, Patch. He is perfect for cuddling. I got Mama to take this week's picture a lot earlier. It was easy; I knew exactly what picture I wanted her to take. Still no sign of my friend Richi, I hope she comes home soon.

I can't believe Mama posted a picture with a big spot on my face. This is the replacement picture. Now, to repost to Facebook. At least, it hadn't been put in the album yet.
I wanted to make sure we got this posted. Sometimes Mama gets distracted and forgets, so I made sure i kept mentioning it until she helped me post it. Mama called me the world's tiniest chatterbox-but the list did get posted.
I'll be back soon,
1/52 Self portrait ; We don't own a camera small enough for me, a photo by richila9098 on Flickr.
We joined a Picture a week on Facebook with Miranda of
This was going to be a picture of Richi, but she hasn't got home yet. This was supposed to be a self portrait, but even the smallest camera was too big for my tiny hands. I will post the list we are following in my next post. Maybe this will help me get at least one post done per week this year.
