Awkward picture...

... but still kind of funny.  :P  I don't like this style of drawing though - big heads, teensy weensy little bodies.  o.O  Too deformed.  I can draw better than that!  At least it captured their likenesses.

If you give a mouse a cookie...

  Anyone remember that old story?  Well, I'm feeling a lot like that moose.  I'm not trying to say that I'm a moose.  If you give an obsessed ABBA fan who's name is ABBAFan456 a rare picture, she's going to want all of them.  :P  I need to stop saving every single rare picture I see even if it is super-dee-duper rare.  I've saved way too much, I can't even open my ABBA folder anymore!!! o.O

Great minds think alike, right?

  Bjorn is writing a new children's book called "Sagan om
ABBA".  In English, it translates as "The Story of ABBA".  The title sounds very familiar, right?  Very similar to "The Story of ABBA - For Young Readers".  And "For Young Readers" is only a byline.  How do I feel about this?  To tell you the truth, I'm feeling very honored as if Bjorn saw my book when it was featured in ABBA Intermezzo and decided that he should write one, too.  That's only what I'm thinking, though.  Anyway, here is the summary in both English and Swedish. 

”Hep stars hade alltid bråttom när deras uppträdanden var över för hinna undan flickorna, som älskade dem så mycket att de sprang efter dem och tjöt och skrek och ville dra i deras hår, som var långt och nytvättat. I alla fall Bennys. Det gjorde ont när flickorna slet i håret, så det var bäst att fly så fort det bara gick.”
Hur gick det till när Sveriges största popband bildades, gjorde succé och till slut splittrades? Hur känns det att stå på scen inför tusentals människor när ett moln av skalbaggar plötsligt kommer flygande? Här berättar Björn Ulvaeus den roliga och fartfyllda berättelsen från början till slut.
Med varm humor och ett lustfyllt språk spinner författaren samman trådarna som bildar en av vår tids bästa popsagor. Vi får följa medlemmarnas uppväxt och deras väg in i musiken, de första mötena och ABBA:s födelse. Ulvaeus är den borne sagoberättaren som suger in läsaren från första sidan. Ola Skogängs illustrationer eggar fantasin och tar oss tillbaka till tiden då allt hände.
All royalty från försäljningen går till Barncancerfonden.
” Hep stars were always in a hurry when their performances were over for getting away from the girls who loved them so much that they ran after them and screamed and screamed and wanted to pull their hair, which was long and freshly washed . In all cases, Benny . It hurt when the girls tore at your hair , so it was best to escape as fast as we could. “
How did that happen when the largest pop band was formed , was a success and eventually split up ? How does it feel to be on stage in front of thousands of people when a cloud of beetles suddenly comes flying ? Here, Bjorn Ulvaeus fun and fast paced story from beginning to end.
With warm humor and a playful language the author spins together the threads that form one of today ‘s best pop stores . We follow the members as they grew up and on their way into the music, the first meetings and ABBA’s birth . Ulvaeus is a born storyteller who draws in the reader from the first page. Ola Forest Meadow illustrations edges imagination and takes us back to the time when everything happened.

Agnetha and Mona are so CUTE!!!

My friend just told me that my Agnetha doll looks just like Agnetha in this picture.  ;)

ABBA the Museum and Me!!!!

  ABBA the Museum just came out with these super cool products! Cat so much better than mine.  That doesn't mean mine are bad, though!  ;)
Dress Tees!  :D  But wait, haven't I seen something like these before...?  My zazzle shop!  I don't feel like I've been copied, nor am I angry.  The Car Dresses are ABBA's and if they want to sell them, I have no say in the matter.  Besides, ABBA the Museum's cat dress tees look

Coat Hangers

I'm sitting hereby my computer, the sun is setting and happens to be right at my eye level and blinding me.  And what am I doing?  Making coat hangers.  Out of what?  Pipe Cleaners/Fuzzy Sticks.  And the reason?  Because I'm tired of storing all my doll clothes in the top two drawers of my dresser.  With all the doll clothes I'm making, I'm overflowing my dresser.  So, I'm working on refitting my room and leaving enough room for both me and my dolls.  Oh yeah, I'm also working on more sewing.  :P  As I am always complaining about, I'm never able to find a picture(s) of the back of Bjorn and Benny's 1977 costumes.  However, I will be able to continue on with these costumes because of my really good friend on YouTube, ABBAFan Seventies!  :D  She's going to Stockholm and will be taking pictures of the back of the costumes I need!  Thank you so much, ABBAFan Seventies!  I really, really appreciate this!  :)

Happy birthday, ABBA the Museum!

One year ago, ABBA the Museum opened.  AND I STILL HAVEN'T WENT YET!!!!!!  I will someday...  Happy birthday, ABBA the Museum.  :)

One year of ABBA the Museum

Tomorrow will mark ABBA the Museum's one year anniversary.  I feel like it's only been open for a short time, though.  I remember when Frida, Benny, and Bjorn attended the opening as if it was yesterday.  Time sure flies real fast.  I'm super jealous, though, because whoever's dressed up as ABBA get free entry.  If I were to go, would my dolls count?

The Star Guitar

  Even though I'm supposed to be working on Me and Bobby and Bobby's brother, I've been taking some time off of that to work on a not so quick but not so easy craft.  Bjorn's star guitar!!!
  Beautiful work of art, no?  Anyways, I didn't come up with the idea myself.  I would like to thank My Froggy Stuff for making so many fun craft tutorials like how to make a Guitar!

My video is the song of the day at Agnetha Official!!!

  Everyday, i go to Agnetha's facebook page.  Today, I freaked out. 

THAT's MY VID!!  HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!!!

May the 4th be with you + My real life Lego ABBA

May the 4th be with you!  Happy Star Wars day!  :D  To honor the fact that today is Star Wars day, here is my collection of LEGO Star Wars minifigs... and my Star Wars journal.  ;)

So, this is my small collection of Star Wars LEGOs minus the rebel troopers whom I forgot to put in the picture.  (L to R) V-Wing pilot, R2-D2 v.2, TI Interceptor pilot, R4 (I named it that), Sand Trooper, Gold Leader, R2-D2 v.1, Wedge Antilles, C-3P0, Obi-Wan "Ben" kenobi, Luke v.1 (Dubbed Con for no apparent reason), Luke Sywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, and Chewbaca.  :)



Now that is my complete LEGO Star Wars minifig collection.  :)
And now for some pictures of my LEGO ABBA.  :)
LEGO ABBA!  :D  Those are very old and loose baseplates.  :(

The famous star guitar!

Mamma Mia, here I go again...

He doesn't sing, so why did I give him a microphone...?  :P

Without the stage.  Cute clothes, though I wish I could give them cat dresses. :(

Anni-Frid and Benny

Bjorn and Agnetha.

  I plan on making an animation with them sometime.  The question is, which song should it be, Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen, or As Good As New?
Just for the fun of it, Take a Chance on Me.  :P

Is Bjorn...

...really wearing that outfit?!?  So, I saw this picture and I was like WHAT?!?!  Was he really wearing his white outfit from the 1979 tour?  So I decided to some investigating, and indeed, he is!













Look here:
The collar, the belt, the jacket...  I actually have only seen him wear that jacket on one picture which is the one below.
  I think I'm going mad...
