Im Now Posting from

Post by Mara on Fri Dec 10, 2010 8:01 pm

My brand spankin new laptop!!! I got a new Dell Inspiron 15R with the i3 processor and upgraded video card. This thing is soooo sweet!! Its so much faster than my desktop. Maybe just maybe if I can save up and buy photo shop I could totally replace my main computer and use this pretty much exclusively.

It was so worth selling a doll for!

Congrats on the new machine!

I tried going to just a laptop, but really do like working at a desktop.

Yep the owl doll. No other doll I have could fetch that sort of $$

And thanks everyone!

Yep I did but she was worth so much $ (I got her for a bargain price) that I couldn't justify keeping her.

Dude...that's the coolest one of those dolls I've seen yet!

Can I ask how much she was worth?

Her dolls sell from ~$1000 and up. I paid less than half of that on a fluke ebay win. The next two dolls she sold went for ~1400 so I put her up on ebay and made twice my money back so I was super excited. Im thinking of it like an investment that paid off.

She bought a laptop, a plane ticket to see my mom and Christmas presents so I don't regret it for a minute.

And Im up to 36 dolls Smile Though none of the others are worth anywhere near that!

Some women buy designer purses or shoes or are willing to spend more than $20 for a pair of jeans. Me I buy dolls Smile

I agree Mara. My sister spent $450 on a Louis Vouitton purse, as in something tiny to keep your coins in not a handbag yet criticises me for buying scrapbooking stuff.

Everyone has different ways of spending their money and time. Seldom do we agree with how anyone else spends both of those commodities!

I'm not Mara, but I will answer for her Tonya. They are Blythe dolls. If you have a minute search on Flickr and you can find TONS of pictures. The first time I met Mara in person she had just got her first girl. I instantly fell in love. Then when we saw her again, my Mom fell in love. Now I have one, my mom has 12, and Mara has 36. I wish I had more and more time to play with my girl! They are addicting because you can get so many different kinds. And they are customizable so you can get the doll to look almost any way you can imagine!
