2015- The Plan

So, a new year and a new post! First of all, I wish all of you a happy, healthy and prosperous new year. Second, as I've stated previously, I plan to post features twice monthly that focus on my crew of GI Joes and Obitsu dolls. The first post should be up soon and the next should follow roughly mid-month. For now, my plan is to post the GI Joe stuff around the first of each month and the Obitsu entries around mid-month. I haven't yet decided whether to post on say, the 1st and 15th or pick a day of the week, like every other Saturday. I would love to have some clever banners to use for these posts but that's not in the cards for now.

 In order to make all this possible, I'm trying to work a bit ahead of schedule to build up a cache of ready to post photos. Of course, this takes some of the spontaneity out of the process but since I have to plan ahead and work when I can get a bit of rare free time to myself, I don't miss being spontaneous. OK, I do miss it but the point of this whole exercise was to use discipline and regularity to carve a bit of "me time" out of a life that is otherwise devoted to family and external obligations.

At any rate, look for (the somewhat cleverly named) Let's Joe! and (the not at all cleverly named) Project: Obitsu to appear shortly and run through 2015.


  1. Happy new year! :3 I'm looking forward to your projects this year. (Haha, Let's Joe! is an awesome name! ;)
    I'd really like to see more of your collection of G.I. Joes and obitsus~ Maybe short introductions of your favorites etc. (or have you done posts like this in the past?)

  2. Happy New Year, ma'am! I hope to include some biographical and/or background info with each post. I have done this with some of the individual dolls/figures I've posted in the past but never in a coherent or consistent manner.
    I hate to admit it but the first Obitsu girl I'm going to post doesn't even have a name! Others have names and detailed backgrounds although a lot of that stuff was last posted years ago on various message boards.

  3. I'm excited to see what you do this year too! Yeah... it's time for me to sit down as well and plan a schedule.
    It's gonna be tough with a baby, but man, I've got to make the time!!!

    1. I hope my little project doesn't disappoint! I will try to keep things interesting although January's entries are a bit pedestrian.

      Kids are wonderful (mostly) but they will gradually consume all of your hobby time. Often, when I get "me time", I'm too tired to do anything fun. This my test to see if I can reclaim a bit of time through planning and scheduling, so I'll see how it works out.
