A few quick announcements!

First of all, if you celebrate Halloween, I hope you had a good time!

Anyway. Happy November! As the title states, I have a few quick announcements to brief you all on!

First: Small Dolls Big Hearts is now on Instagram! Some of you already know this, but if you’re unaware, now you know! If you’re interested in seeing more doll-related content, you can follow us at @small.dolls.big.hearts to see more doll photography!

I know I also mentioned in this post that I repaint dolls as a hobby, so I’ve also set up an Instagram for that. If you want to see some of my work, it can be found at @willowrepaints!

And, of course, Happy Nanowrimo! I’m so excited for this year. I have a stash of chocolate, kleenex, and writing prompts all ready to go.

My brother’s birthday is in just a few days! I’m so excited to give him the gift that my friend and I have put together.

Sorry, this post was quick. I probably won’t post a lot, if anything, in November due to Nano but I’m still hoping to be active on Instagram, and I can’t wait to share some parts of my story with you all!

Next time,

Snow?

Hello, lovelies!

Assuming you’ve read the title, you probably already know what this post is about – snow!

It seems quite early for snow – after all, it was summer just two weeks ago! (approximately). And now it seems like we’ve been thrown into the depths of winter!

Where I live it’s already snowed more than twice. Crazy! In fact, as I write this it’s snowing. I have a difficult relationship with snow – sometimes I love the soft fluffy sky-flakes, and sometimes I wish they’d go away. As of right now, I’m in love with them. The enchantment of the first few snowfalls hasn’t worn off yet.

My cat, Frank, is enthralled by the light snowfalls so far, but hasn’t yet tried to escape outside due to the fact that whenever he puts his furry paw on the threshold to the outdoors he immediately draws it back. He’s an indoor cat for sure! It’s way too cold for him.

However, our other cat Emmett, desperately wants to go outside. He doesn’t care whether it’s freezing outside or blazing hot – he always wants to explore. Sometimes I pick him up and hold him outside but that doesn’t quite satisfy him.

Olivia, our dog is allowed outside whenever she likes but she’s actually a bit of a wimp. When she’s in our backyard, she’ll lift up on paw to keep it warm, then another, until we let her inside.

The guinea pigs probably don’t even know that winter exists, so I can’t say much about them.

As for me, I’m enjoying the chill so far. We’ll see how long that lasts!

Summer!

Hello, lovelies! It’s been a while, but it feels wonderful to be back. Let’s jump in, shall we?Summer – what an amazing time! I’ve been having a lovely time so far. In this post I’m going to let you know what I’ve been up to.

QUICK NOTE: I was having some issues with logging in/saving things on WordPress, so this is posted about a week late.

1. The Pool Odyssey

Me and my mom/brother went to all the pools where we live this summer! It was a little bit exhausting sometimes, but mostly a lot of fun. I absolutely love swimming! Do you?

2. We went to our friend’s wedding social!

My mom’s friend got married! We got to go to their wedding social with my friend (let’s call her Macy). Macy and I dressed up and hung out and danced. It was awesome!

3. Our cat died.

Sadly, our oldest cat, Natalie, died. She was 22, which is amazingly old for a cat. We miss her a lot but we value the time we had with her.

4. Fall is coming!

I’m so excited for fall, you have no idea. Autumn is my favourite season. It also means Halloween is coming! And Thanksgiving. And eventually Christmas! I’m also waaaay too excited for Christmas. (Fun fact: I listen to Christmas music ALL the time. ALLLL the time.)

5. I got my ears pierced

I’ve wanted to get my ears pierced for about six years now. I hadn’t for a while, but a week ago, I did! Me, my brother, my mom, and my friend Macy all went. It definitely didn’t hurt that much – it feels like a tight pinch. And I love wearing earrings!

Thanks for reading! Seeya next time,

Mini Q&A Answers!

Hello, lovelies! So today we have a little mini Q&A. Many thanks to Mary E. and The Director for asking me some really great questions! So let’s start!

Miniature Q&A!

Our first question is from The Director!

How did you come up with the title for your blog?

This is actually a really interesting question that I’ve never really thought of before! When I first started my blog, it was specifically doll-centred. Of course I still absolutely love my dolls (I even have a huge doll-related announcement coming soon!) even though I also post about other things now. When creating my blog, I was thinking about how I could express how much my dolls mean to me and give people a sense of what my posts would be like! I came up with Small Dolls Big Hearts!

Our second question, from The Director:

Why did you start blogging?

This is a tough one because there are so many reasons! I love to write and to share my interests and I thought that having a blog would be super interesting. Dolls are one of my favourite things (along with reading, writing, and cats), so I decided to blog about them. At first, I thought there would be zero doll-blogging community but I soon learned there was, and you’re all awesome! I do it mostly for fun and to interact with all of my awesome internet friends!

Our next question comes from Mary E:

What’s your favourite sport?

Hmmm…being Canadian, I would probably say hockey! I’m not even that good at hockey, but I love watching it and trying to play it! Apparently, I’m really good at football, but it’s actually one of my least favourite sports.

From Mary E:

What’s your favourite thing about blogging?

This is definitely the most difficult question! I love almost all aspects of blogging, but mostly YOU GUYS! My second favourite part is probably writing my posts. I enjoy making content for my blog even if I don’t post nearly as much as I should (oops!)!

Our last question, from Mary E:

What’s your favourite thing that you have?

I would say my doll stuff in general! Also, my favourite books. And my cat! And my guinea pig. I love all my things! Ooh, and my nice markers/sketchbook! And all of my many hoodies. Fun fact: I have waaaay too many sweaters. Way too many.

Thank you again, Mary E. and The Director! (Check their blogs out, by the way!)

Bye for now!

All The Pets + Maybe A Q&A?

So today I’m going to be talking about all of my pets! (Well, most of them are family pets but close enough) In total there are 6 pets. That’s a lot considering we live in the city! I mean, I would get more if we could but sadly not. 😦

So we have our dog, Olivia!

 

(I couldn’t choose just one picture, hehe)

Olivia is a really sweet dog. She has some weird stuff going on with one of her ears right now, but we’re giving her medication for it so it will go away eventually. All I can say is, the medicine does not smell good. She loves the outdoors! Olivia also loves the guinea pigs because their squeaking noises sound a lot like puppies! She loves pretty much everyone and everything, though. For some reason, she really hates Pomeranians, though.

And our youngest cat, Emmett:

 

Emmett is our most evil cat. He likes to run around crazily in the morning. And afternoon. And evening. And night. All the time, really. He also likes to harass our other orange cat, Frank. About a week ago Emmett manages to get under our porch even though he’s an indoor cat and then we spent about an hour trying to get him out. Eventually, we did. Eventually.

And then the best cat, Frank (So I may be biased because he’s my cat XD)

 

Frank loves doll hats, catnip, and selfies as you can see from the pictures above! He’s the sweetest cat of all. He’s also a little overweight. More to love, right? He’s a very soft and fluffy cat who really, really, really, likes to sleep and eat. Those are his favourite things in life. He likes dolls too!

Then Natalie, our oldest cat! She’s TWENTY.

20161006_211514759_ios

Wow, that picture is bigger than I thought it would be.

Anyway, Natalie is very old! She’s a cute calico cat with a white nose. She mostly just sleeps. And eats wet cat food which smells really awful. Ick.

Then the guinea pigs! We don’t have any pictures of them downloaded yet but I will make sure it gets done. Clementine, my guinea pig is adventurous and sweet. She’s orange with a white diamond on her forehead. Then Cashew, my brother’s guinea pig, is a bit shyer. She’s also a Peruvian guinea pig, meaning she has really long hair! We have to trim it pretty routinely.

There you have it! All the pets! And as the title states, I was thinking about doing a Q&A! If you’re interested in a Q&A, please let me know. 🙂

LUCIANA VEGA!

I ended up buying her for my birthday gift to myself! She is absolutely adorable. I’m planning on having a review coming pretty soon.

I’ve decided to keep her name. I love the name Luciana and Luci is such a cute nickname. For my birthday I also got her Flight Suit and her Stellar Outfit. Thanks, Grandma and Grandpa!

Anyway, the people who guessed it right were

Hope of AGDollDreams

Bella of Doll Habit

Thank you so much to everyone who guessed!
