Blythe Schedule Book 2011

My best mate MP and I have had this tradition for the past few years whereby I gift her with a Blythe schedule book that she uses throughout the next year to keep track of her happening life and extensive travels. I use them too but I'm usually too lazy to update them regularly though I do find them useful for writing down lists such as the beauty products that I am trying to use up.

This year, MP picked Marabelle Melody (left in the pic above) while I decided on Deep Autumn (right). The pic below shows the Blythe schedule books that I used from 2008 to 2010.

Each year, there are four cover designs. The pages insides are identical.

This year, for the first time, a sheet of stickers has been included for marking out various events.

Some people find these dolls freaky but I like their coy sideways glances, thoughtful expressions and the incredible creativity that many collectors show in customising and dressing up their dolls. You can see my post on last year's Singapore Toy and Comic Convention for some fine examples. I don't collect the dolls due to lack of space (thanks to my extensive makeup stash!) but I buy the photobooks and stationery.

This year's convention will be held on 10-12 December and Simone Legno of Tokidoki is already listed as a guest. Wonder if the Tokidoki makeup line will be stocked in our local Sephora stores by then?

I ordered these schedule books from Amazon Japan. You can also get them from Junie Moon which ships internationally by EMS from Japan.

Can't believe we are already heading into the last three months of 2010!

Hey Jazzie,
You're welcome! The DollzInc at Wheelock Place didn't have these schedule books in yet and I didn't want to wait, so I ordered from Amazon Japan. DollzInc should get it in some time later this year.
