Blythe and Me: Jane of Ddalkijane

Hello everyone! I hope a lot of you enjoyed the very first Blythe and Me feature with Violet of Blythe Ponytail Parades last week. I had an amazing time putting together that post so I'm really excited to get started with the second feature. :)

For today's installment of the Blythe and Me series, I have interviewed one of the friendliest bloggers I know    Jane of Ddalkijane. She's a creative Korean now based in America with her cool hubby and an even cooler cat named Gamja. Aside from her pretty dolls, her random daily life musings and fun drawings are always something I look forward to everyday. Let's get to know her more and her blog, together with her enormous Blythe dolls collection. She's got so many dolls I could only dream of having!

Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your awesome blog?
I'm Jane. My blog is about my daily life plus Blythe dolls and ddalki (meaning strawberry in Korean) diary which reflects my feelings and my daily life.

What got you into collecting Blythe dolls and can you share with us the story behind your very first Blythe?
I discovered Blythe dolls from the internet for the very first time in 2005. I wanted to get one for myself, but since I couldn't find any Blythe sellers near my place, I wasn't able to get one. I didn't trust online shopping at that time. But in 2006, I decided to order my first Blythe doll, Samedi Marche from a store called Toy Tokyo in New York. When I received her I was the happiest person in the world. :)

I got my second Blythe doll, White Magic Night from Toy Tokyo while I was traveling in New York. The rest of my dolls I got from Ebay.

How many Blythe dolls do you currently have? Do you have a particular favorite?
I have 14 Blythe dolls, 1 Middie Blythe and 1 unopened Blythe doll. My favorite doll is Samsoon (I named her after my favorite character from a Korean TV drama) and she's the first doll that I got. Abbie (I named her after one of my friends who lives in UT) is one of the dolls that my awesome friend, Natsuko in Japan gave a plastic surgery (customized).

Do you also feature your Blythe dolls on your blog? Any other special activities you do with your dolls (like maybe bringing them when you travel, sewing clothes for them)?
I do "Blythe on Friday" on my blog. I used to carry my dolls everywhere I went but I realized that I got scratches on my dolls' face, so I don't do that very often now. I've wanted to do something with my Blythe dolls on my blog so I came up with the idea of posting about my Blythe dolls on my blog every Friday instead.

Also, I started learning how to sew and use the sewing machine. I've already made a couple outfits for my Blythe dolls and plan on selling them once I became good at sewing. I do a little customizing with my dolls sometimes like changing their eye chips, sanding their face, giving them new eye makeup & lips color. In fact, I just recently did my first re-rooting hair process. :)

Aside from Blythe dolls, are you also into collecting other things?
I also collect Sony Angel and Harajuku Lovers perfume.
