February Topics: Black History, Valentine's Day, Presidents' Day, & Toy Fair

Am I the only one thinking that we should still be in January?

(Oh, I am sick and tired of the cold and the snow/ice. I don't want to lengthen this January. So why do I feel ... cheated? Because I'm still working on my "January" goal - complete list of DAFs for sale or trade. Sigh. Fudge.)

Speaking of fudge and other good chocolate things brings to mind February topics to be addressed this month:
  • Black History month
  • Valentine's Day
  • Presidents' Day
  • Toy Fair 2015  
  • Organizing the collection

It seems that January has just flown by. Looking forward to you addressing these topics this month!

Hi RoxanneRoxanne!

And January's a long month - 31 days.

Hope you enjoy this month's selections ;-)

It's not just you -- I accomplished a lot but it seems like there should have been time to do more.

Your list indirectly reminded me to check my calendar for Chinese New Year events, and the big festival got moved to a spot MUCH nearer to where I live! Yay.

I know...this year is speeding by with or without us. LOL I need to get busier!

Heh, I was just thinking "Where did January go?!?" myself. Time flies!

Georgia Girl said...

Great topics! January zoomed by and here are February 2nd already. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

January certainly was in a hurry. Perhaps it felt a need to make way for all the seasonal stuff popping up in stores. I've been seeing everything from hearts to Easter eggs on shelves since before the new year. Your topic list looks exciting.

Hi Smaller Places, The grandmommy, jSarie, Georgia Girl, and Jewell!

Snaps finger - oops, I forgot about Chinese New Year. I've got a post for that, too. This year. Thanks, Smaller Places, for that reminder!

Lots of fun for February!

Organizing the collection. Bring it!

Vanessa said...

For once I feel pretty good about the start of this year. I'm sure it's because I've stayed on track with what I set out to do. Let's make this a great, productive month! Go tackle those lists.

Muff said...

Still in January? Heck, I'm still in December! I'm catching up though.

D7ana said...

Hi Barb the Evil Genius, Roville, Vanessa, and Muff!

@Barb the Evil Genius - yes, Toy Fair is the most wonderful time of the year!

@Roville - fist pump - yes!

@Vanessa - thanks for setting a good example. Hut, hut - tackling the lists!

@Muff - hey, you share fun and interesting news. I don't want to miss out so go at your pace. New is news ;-)

I can't believe it's Toy Fair time again! Usually I look forward to it to see what new Barbies will be sneaked but last couple years have been a bomb. Why even bother?

D7ana said...

Hi Pattisdolls! Yes, it's that time of the year. I like to imagine wonderful figures will be produced and that I will miraculously have the funds to get them AND the space to keep them. I savor the anticipation ;-)

The Fifth Harmony dolls look cute. Pity about the stiff bodies though.

Ms. Leo said...

Hmm...what dolls were at the Toy Fair? I'm happy to say that I'm going on Valentine's Day weekend. Hmmm...where is my swimsuit?

D7ana said...

Hi Ms. Leo - I'm waiting to see what's new at Toy Fair. Wish you the best for your Valentine's Day weekend ;-)
