Have you ever felt the bjd hobby has just kinda came to a stand still / stagnated ? What keeps you going / interested ? I couldn't find any similar thread so I'd figured this was fun to discuss. When I first started the hobby it was all about the accumulation and buying more! There was the thrill of the hunt , the constant saving and hours of browsing of the the perfect [insert item]. There was also the beginners wishlist, and so the quest begun to complete it. I feel like I've come to the point where I've completed all the 'achievable' parts with the expensive final grails just being an out of reach side thought. I suppose now I'm well in the 2nd phase of the hobby where I don't feel the need to get anything else for my dolls. I'm happy with the number of dolls I have, the amount of doll clothes ,wigs, accessories i have. So what now?! I just don't feel the same thrill I felt at the beginning of the hobby. What have you done to rekindle your love in the hobby?! *** Edit: (Ooh wow! Thanks do much everyone for your wonderful answers! Hearts out to everyone! ! ) Aaah! I suppose that's phase 2 then, when you fall more in love with what you have by doing more things with what you have! ~ This definitely makes me feel better as I was scared that then lack of desire to get more was a bad thing I have been focusing more on my doll photography and checking out doll faceups/sewing. I suppose the sudden change of pace had gotten me worried if I was missing something. (My facebook feed from bjd groups is often flooded with new doll arrival posts from other members and I often felt that i couldn't add anything from the conversation as I neither had plans to buy anything or anything on the way). As mentioned below I suppose phase 2 is the refocus zone to sit back and discover other aspects of the hobby you hadn't thought of before.
