We've been talking for a pretty long time, so I'm not entirely sure where we first started talking. Could have been on a Dutch dolling forum? Anyway, we moved on to deviantArt and have since been indulging in overly long comments about nostalgia, dolling and cats. Mostly cats, since we're both big cat lovers ^^ She asked me to be site sisters around March-April 2013 :)
We started talking on deviantArt and kept on talking and talking. In the comments, through notes, we just kept blabbering on and greatly enjoyed doing so. She asked me to be her dolling sister in late December 2012 or early January 2013. Years after this, we're still having long conversations, though most of them have now moved on to Skype ^^ Unfortunately, I haven't heard from her in ages.
These are my former sister sites. I barely talk to them anymore, but I decided to keep this info up because of the good times we had.
This also started at TG as Steph send me a lovely Halloween gift. I replied to her PM with my own gift and we started talking about our fear of dogs, our love for the works of Tolkien, our fantasy stories, archery, dolling and various other things ^^ The PM named 'RE: Halloween gift' continued to be sent back and fro again and again even as the Christmas holidays etc. passed. Now the title has been changed, but only because a PM send by me vanished into the deep murky depths of TG XD Even though that we have been sending each other messages for such a long time, it has not gotten boring. Instead a lovely friendship and our sistership grew out of it. It has always been a joy reading her messages and it still is. She has never complained about my ranting (which is most uninteresting XD) and together we try to keep our muses under control by poking each other's muse :p
In April 2009 I was most surprised opening her PM as there was a lovely sister gift waiting there for me:
To which I replied with this:
... Yeah, due to my slow dolling I couldn't get the doll finished that same day, but I didn't want to keep her waiting for an answer. The day after I sent her the proper gift:
It all started at TG, where we started PM'ing after I had commented on her dolls. After discovering we both speak the same language, Dutch, and had some shared interests, we started talking on msn. We talked for hours, going to bed at 2.00 a.m, became very normal. One day, we were both complaining about how our dolls wouldn't work out. I suggested trading them, and so we did. You can see the results below :)
And part two of the collab: my doll (left) and her version (right).
A while after this, I think it was in August 2008, she asked to be my sister. Because of her lack of inspiration I didn't get a sister gift, but I didn't mind that. She told me that she was a bit nervous because we didn't know each other that long, but that didn't matter since I wanted to ask her too. Talking to her was so fun and we had so much in common it was beginning to get freaky XD
