Well, here we are! Another October is finally upon us! I swear, it feels like every year, I'm signing off on the previous Pic-of-the-Day Challenge on Halloween afternoon, and then the next thing I know, it's back again the following year. I'm in disbelief that it's actually October today and to be honest, I don't know if I'm fully ready for it, but I'm hoping it's a good one.

Happy October, everyone! I can't believe it's really here once again!

Okay, does anyone want to tell me where the month of September went?! I swear, I thought 2017 was going to be big year for doll/toy journaling for me, but the months just keep getting away from me. I truly feel like my birthday was just yesterday, and it was on the 8th! Maybe I'm a little spoiled with my Instagram, who knows?

But, everything's about to change starting tomorrow! If you know me from my previous doll journal on LJ, you likely already know about this, but if you don't, well...Get ready for a full month of pictures!

As I know I've mentioned here before in one of my far and few between posts, I'm a total Halloween nut, and back in 2009, I came up with the idea to challenge myself to take an autumn/Halloween related picture a day for the entire month. I didn't even think I'd be able to do it at first, but now it's become a yearly tradition, going into its ninth year! Things may be a little rough this year because I seem to have lost my usual camera, but we'll get by. Usually I tend to just use dolls for the pictures, but I'm excited to have the Hatchimals and other toys here this year as well. I think it's going to be a fun year, and we're going to be kicking off with an on-location pic at the Applefest tomorrow! I can't believe how fast October's come, but I'm so glad it's just about here! Let's hope it's a good one!

Today I stopped in Toys R Us while out and about, mainly looking for the new Hatchimals blind box clip-ons. I didn't find any of those, but I did finally stumble across the exclusive Owlicorn Colleggtibles. I really don't collect the Colleggtibles, as I'm just not overly fond of them and I also have a tendency to lose tiny things, but I do like the Colleggtibles that actually are based on the same designs of the larger Hatchimals. I'm kind of obsessed with the idea of all my Hatchimals having mini-mes someday. Luckily, with the Owlicorns, it's easy to ensure you won't get doubles, based on the colors of the nests that come with them, so I was able to get the full set, and I made a little video opening them. (It's awkward because I had a lot of stuff on the bed and had a hard time setting the iPad up, and also because I'm not sure I want my face seen when this account is public, but hopefully it's somewhat enjoyable.)

So remember, if you're wanting any specific set of these, the darker blue nest matches the wave 1 Owlicorns (darker pink and blue), the aqua blue nest matches the Gittering Garden Owlicorns (aqua blue and brighter pink), and the pink nest comes with the Owlicorns that don't exist yet in large form (purple and light blue). I have a group shot here on Instagram.

The Owlicorns with their mini-selves. )

Like I said in the video, I need to do a real Hatchimals update soon! The family has grown so much from the last Hatchimal post I did here about Polly-O and Cassie! I just really, really love these toys. <3

So, if you know me personally or from my previous doll journal, you know I'm a Halloween fanatic, and you probably know that every year, I go to a little in-store "party" event at Yankee Candle, premiering their Boney Bunch line, and other Halloween items, for the year. That party happens to be tomorrow, and I felt that my mini-me Violet was dressed for the occasion. (Yeah, she hasn't changed outfits since I got her, but she's not complaining. heh. I always say I'm going to prioritize doll clothes and then other stuff comes up.) I don't think I've taken any pictures of her outdoors yet either, and the weather's still beautiful (surprisingly enough) so off we went!

Pretty little skeleton-loving girl. )

I really want to start doing more with my AG dolls...And like I said, new clothes. I think Violet here is going to be my go-to doll for the October Pic-of-the-Day Challenge this year!
