This question came to mind when an acquaintance of mine find out that I too had collected bjd's after seeing some of my facebook posts. I never knew it was a hobby of hers before, I had even been over to her house and never even would have guessed. (She keeps her place super tidy and organised.) So how many are you in the closet with the hobby? Do you allow certain people to know, or do you not mind? I myself am a very open individual and it would take something way more than making/collecting bjd's to make me embarrassed. Not that I don't understand how a person could feel that way or for whatever other reason's that they might keep it private.
