This picture of Min was taken by my son in June of 2011…before I ever started writing this blog. It is one of my favourite pictures of all time, not to mention one of my favourite pictures of my Quimper Hitty family.
I don’t usually wax lyrical about myself, but today I have a good reason to do so…I started writing a blog because there was a big hole in my life. I had carved a Hitty doll (Linnea) for my mother in 2010, and our dolls used to visit, write and send pictures to each other for fun. When my mother died, my husband (the Hitty’s favourite photographer) decided to learn how to do a blog, so he could teach me. He also bought me a better camera so I could keep having storytelling and imaginative fun with my dolls.
Today I am celebrating the one thousandth Quimper Hitty blog post! I could never have imagined all the fun, the nice people, the particular points of view and the expanding universe of Hittys that writing this blog would bring.
Have you ever wondered what it is like “behind the scenes”? Click here for the “About” page where there are some pictures of the picture-taking, and you can see what fun it is on the other side of the camera!
I want to seriously and genuinely wish you a thousand heartfelt thanks, and love to you all – I am so glad you are having fun alongside me.
