My sister and I attended the MN BJD meet in Roseville, MN on Sunday. It was good to go to a meet, but really awkward being the newbie in the group! I’m so used to knowing everyone that walking into a room and not knowing anybody was really weird….
Anyway, we met some fantastic people and I took loads of pictures! Except I didn’t get any pictures of my dolls or my sister’s doll. Ooops! Will have to fix that next time.
There are a couple meets coming up in both the Chicago (IL) and Twin Cities (MN) areas.
As I transition over from my life in Chicago and helping to run ChitownDollz forum, I will probably still have some of the Chicago area meets posted up here in addition to the MN meets. However, I most likely will not be able to attend too many other than the huge summer & winter mega meets in the Chicago area.
When things get a bit more settled, I will be posting and (hopefully) attending the MN meets in southeastern Minnesota.

ChitownDollz had a meetup on February 21. I wasn’t able to make it until later in the evening, so I think I missed a bunch of people who were there earlier.
I was so happy I went! There were a few people there who are returning to the hobby after several years of little to no activity. 😀
There were only a few dolls left when I got there, so there aren’t too many pictures this time…
