Good Intentions, Overestimations and Curve Balls

So…by now you have realized that the whole blogging thing from convention did not happen.  It has been over a week since I have returned home and I have yet to get my first post out about it.  A big part of the reason behind that is that I had no idea how difficult it would be to room sell, get pictures and then post a writeup about it.  I had every intention of doing multiple blog posts a day with pictures showcasing the days events.  See…I really did have “Good Intentions”. 

What I failed to realize ( my “Overestimation” problem) was that I would be very busy with room sales and just attending the events.  I felt good that I could upload photos to my Flickr page fairly regularly and frankly, I could do that while I was sitting at events or sitting waiting for events.  It looks like many of you caught on to that and were at least able to visit my Flickr page to see photos of things.  Thank you for your patience and continued support!

I also need to acknowledge something else that factored and will continue to factor in going forward for the next couple of months.  While at convention, life threw me two heart wrenching and personal curve balls that may require me to take some time away from the blog.  I anticipate being able to get the post convention writeups out and share a few stories about my experience but they may not be out in a timely manner.  I ask for your understanding during this time.  One of my favorite quotes during difficult times is by the indomitable Winston Churchill who said.. “ When you are going through Hell…keep going”   Wise words Mr. Churchill…wise words.


2014 National Barbie Doll Collectors Convention…

…let the madness begin.  By the time this blog entry posts, I will be boarding a series of flights that will take me deep into the heartland of the United States.  The National Barbie Doll Collectors Convention (NBDCC) is gathering collectors from all over the world in Nashville Tennessee this year and I will be there to report and to enjoy.


I am especially excited to go and see old and new friends this year because I missed the big dance last year.  I can’t wait to catch up with everyone.  I will be sharing photos and updates on the blog here and on my Flickr account.  Feel free to follow along.  I will try to do my daily updates but am making no promises as I will also be selling out of my room this year.  Things will most likely be a little crazy for a bit.  Here is the sales flyer for what I have.© 2014 Inside The Fashion Doll Studio

If you are in Nashville this year, feel free to stop by.  I will post the room number once I get in.  Watch for the ITFDS flyers on the sales boards.  Hope to post my first update tomorrow night.  Smile
