Sorry I haven't been posting lately. I will be posting more this week though!

First things first, (I'm the realest, realest) I will be doing a photo story series that will (hopefully) be more successful than Sarah Sockett. It will be called Time Traveling Taters. I'll let that suspense hang... :)

Second, I am starting a magazine called All Things Doll. I will keep you updated.

Third, I would love it if I could do a Dollympic Games and all your dolls (and mine) could each pick a sport and do it. Comment if interested.

So yeah. That's the news. I leave you with a cute pic of Belle and Saige at my old house.

Thanks for understanding and keep being awesome! :)

Never Too Old For Dolls/Hug A Doll Day 2014

I have been super busy with school and sports lately. I have had literally no time for AG. But then I come home and see my grandma ready to sew one of my doll clothes designs and realize; AG is my outlet! It's the only down time I really have! I am so lucky to have all of you here to read my not-so-great blog and comment sincere compliments. (I hope I not worrying you that I'm leaving, because I'm totally not!)

Okay, now onto the main thing:


I am 11 years old and though I got into AG late, I still have the same love for dolls as a 6 year old. I wish more people would not be caught up in their age and feel that they "can't" play with dolls anymore. It is sad to see your friend's dolls lying neglected in their closets. That's why I declare today, November 16 to be Hug A Doll Day.

Pumping Blood Music Video! (Photo Shoot Coming Soon)

Hey! For my science class, we had to make a project about the heart. Guess what? I made a stop-motion. I can't share that stop-motion though, it has my real name in it. But I did make a funny little music video along with it that I can share! 

*HERE* is the link!

Please watch it! :)

  • Provide a link to the original post on Edge of NightThat way, anyone can find the original guidelines and post if needed, and we can keep it from mutating and becoming confusing! (It happens LOL). 
Thanks to AGDTime and SmallTownAmericanGirlz!

First, here is the summary of how I started my blog. A piece of advice to give to new bloggers is, try to communicate with your viewers.

I missed Samantha by four years. She was the doll that got me into AG! I grew up reading her mysteries and being inspired by her and Nellie's courage. The Curse Of Ravenscourt was my favorite book in third grade. Little did I know that there were two beautiful dolls that went with the story.

In second grade, all my friends had five or six American Girl dolls. (My four lovely ladies do not even come close to that! Sorry Marie Grace, Saige, Isabelle and Eva) That year, my teacher asked us to all make a "me" box and to decorate the outside and put "pieces of our life" inside. I put a tennis ball, swimming goggles and my figure skate guards inside the box. On the outside however, all my friends were cutting and pasting pictures from AG catalogs! I didn't want to miss out on the fun of using scissors!

They all went on and on of buying clothes and accessories for their beloved dolls. (Clothes only cost $21 back then, can you believe it?) I didn't understand anything they said! I remember thinking: "How can Kit be a name?" Back then, Kit's treehouse was new so I pasted it on the top of my box. I pasted pictures of dolls and pets not knowing what real treasure they were! When I came back home, my mother asked: "You don't even like dolls! How can these be on your "me" box?" I simply answered: "All the other girls were doing it too!"

Flash forward to 2012 (third grade): I received the Holiday catalog from AG. My dad threw it away, but I made my mom retrieve it from the recycling bin. I kept in my room for a whole year just looking at the pictures because it made me happy.

In 2013, there was a big test. I looked at the catalog and realized, one of these dolls would be a great prize if I got a good grade! (All my friends had grown out of AG years ago so I was the only one)

Sure enough, the grades came in and I excelled! I decided to pop the question. "Hey dad, could you get me this doll? I think her name is Cećile." (Yes, you heard right. I said Cećile) When my dad looked at the page and said, "Are you sure she's the one you want?" I looked at the page too. "Oh sorry! I meant Marie Grace! Isn't she pretty?" My dad consulted my mom. The answer was yes! I could get Marie Grace!

Flash forward a few days. My Marie Grace hadn't arrived yet. I asked my dad, "Could I have another Marie in place of the original Marie Grace?" (I was sure she wasn't coming) My dad, sensing my sadness, said, "Alright. I'll order you another one." Sure enough, two days later, my original Marie Grace came! The next day, the second Marie Grace arrived. I asked my dad what we should do about the second doll (we named her Marie Claire). He said we should go to the store and get a different doll in exchange for Marie Claire.

Two weeks later, me and my best friend (and our dolls of course) went to the Boston AG store. I had my heart set on Kit. (I hated Saige back then) But when I walked in, I had a change of heart. Saige was meant to part of my family! We bought her accessories for me and my friend. Since her accessories included earrings, my friend decided to pierce her doll's ears.

Flash forward to January of this year. While driving home from a swim meet in Boston University, my dad changed the address in the GPS to 1245 Worcester St. Natick MA! Insignificant? Not at all! It was the address to the Boston AG store! My parents were buying me an AG doll for my birthday (which is in February, by the way) but they wanted me to chose which doll. They were going to order Caroline online, but I fell in love with Isabelle! (I hated Isabelle before. Why? Because she took Saige's place! Go figure)

Then, I got Eva for making to Age Group cuts (state championships) for swimming.

The rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you, they will surely appreciate it! Also, leave a link back to the person who nominated you.
  • Write about ten things you are thankful for. Here is the tricky part though; you can't just say you are grateful for gum or video games or whatever "little" thing it is you want to discuss. Think deeply about what is really really important to you, such as family, or life in it of itself. Explain why you are thankful for those things.
  • Tag ten other bloggers; our goal is to tag everyone!! Comment on the blogs you nominate so that they will know that they were tagged!
  • Add the pic above to you sidebar or award page thanking the person (or people) who tagged you.

  2. I'm thankful to have the opportunity to go to a private school.
  3. I'm thankful for my 5 dolls.
  4. I'm thankful for having awesome friends.
  5. I'm thankful for having doctor parents.
  6. I'm thankful my grandma lives with me.
Thanks again for these awesome awards!

Happy (Late) Halloween!

Well, sorry this is late, but I was out trick or treating soooooo long I forgot to post this. (I was a devil race car driver if you were wondering) Anyway, here are what my dolls were!

Saige was a '50s girl. I love the detail of the ruffles on the skirt!

Isabelle was a ballerina. I used her performance set for this costume.

Eva decided to play a prank on her sister and be Saige for Halloween! (Saige: Very funny Eva)

And lastly, MG was a chic goth!

Anyway, hope you and your dolls had an awesome Halloween!
