Doll Makeover

So I did something I never thought I had the courage to do - I remade my ABBA dolls' bodies because I was tired of how floppy and tattered they became over the last 8 years.
I have a detailed blog post about it over on Sew Amazing, and I also have a video for you all that I've uploaded to YouTube. :)

DO NOT HATE on the Ulvaeus Family

I saw a post today that was absolutely disgusting, from someone who was saying horrible and disgusting things to Bjorn's daughter, Anna, on her own instagram page, and terrible things about Anna's mother, Bjorn's wife, Lena.  This person has been repeatedly posting harassing comments on Anna's page, saying how they hate her mother, that Bjorn and Agnetha are forever, etc.  This is an absolutely disgusting and inappropriate thing to do. 

Hating on Bjorn's family, his wife and daughters, because he's not with Agnetha anymore is sickening.  Agnetha and Bjorn broke up 40 years ago.  ABBA wouldn't have been ABBA if not for Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny, and Frida, two couples who fell in love and formed a band that we all love today.  But relationships fall apart and both couples divorced.  Did that stop them from continuing on as a band? No.  Even nowadays, with ABBA together again working on two new songs, it shows that there are no hard feelings.

Agnetha and Bjorn were married for ~8 years, from 1971 to 1979.  Bjorn and Lena have been married
for longer, since 1981, are still happily married today.  Doesn't that say something?

Don't get me wrong, I loved when Agnetha and Bjorn were together, and I'm sad that their relationship didn't work out in the end and they had to divorce.  Lena is not to be blamed for this, nor is Bjorn for marrying her.  Do we hate on Agnetha for having a boyfriend and almost getting married to another man before meeting and falling in love with Bjorn in 1969?  No, and it would be wrong to do that, just as it is wrong to hate on Lena and her two beautiful daughters, Emma and Anna.

Don't insult Bjorn's wife and daughters.  Don't say disgusting things to them.  Just leave them alone.  They've done nothing wrong.
