    Jewel’s Guide to Making a Photo Story

    Hello, doll lovers! I haven’t really been able to go outside lately because my allergies are really bad, but today I thought it would be fun to show you the elements I use when making a doll photo story! I’ve actually learned more about the “why” of my methods through learning about story lately, and I can now dissect my photo stories more properly. Hopefully, this can help you make some of your own photo stories. 🙂 Doll:   First, I usually start by figuring out which doll I want to use. I strongly encourage exploring the personalities of all your dolls, and a great way to do that is through a…

    AG Q&A With My MOM!

    Hey People! Katie recently tagged me to do an AG Q&A with my MOM! Check out her post HERE! It was hilarious! I did a similar thing with my brother HERE. It was so much fun, so I was excited to do it with my Mom!  We recorded our conversation and I tried my best to translate it into text. XD This took us around 16 minutes, so it’s long, but if you stick with it, I’m sure it will not fail to entertain. Both of my brothers were in the room so there were some interjections. There will be lots of laughing. XD My first brother will be called “Bro,”…

    Our New American Girl Doll Kitchen!

    Hey everybody! You saw our new dollhouse kitchen remodel a little, but I thought I’d give you a bit of a more in-depth tour today! I’ll be linking this post to the Meet the AG dolls page. See our old kitchen HERE. It wasn’t much of a kitchen then, but now it looks much more like it should. My sister bought the blue “My Life As” kitchen for $50 at Walmart. It came with a few accessories, but the rest of the stuff we had. Today, I have her doll Chen to show it to you, as well as Chen’s Pomeranian puppy. Over to the left, we have a dining table…

    Why Do My AG Dolls Have Young Ages?

    Hello! I hope you all are having an amazing week! Today I want to talk about the ages of my American Girl dolls and why I choose to keep them young. Also, enjoy a photoshoot of Kit! First I want to say that I have nothing against people who make their AG dolls to be teens and/or adults. Seriously, they can do whatever they want. I’m totally cool with it. 🙂 I’m just here to tell you all why I choose not to do that for my collection. This isn’t often talked about in the doll blogging world, so I hope if you are struggling to decide what ages to give…

    Q&A With the New Dolls + Win a Shout-out!

    Hey! You read it right! I’m having a Q&A with the new dolls! A little while back, my sister and I (over just a few months) bought/received 5 American Girl Dolls. I’m not sure if you guys felt a little overwhelmed (I did, which is why I will probably not be asking for a doll for Christmas).  Anyway, I thought it would be cool if we could learn a little bit more about each one together. I have also decided to spice it up, with a chance to win a shout-out! The dolls, of course, are: Chen: Tenney: Logan: Rebecca: Luci: How to do it: Comment below asking questions to the…

    An Interesting Visit to the AG Store!

    Hey everybody! I thought I’d post today, to tell you about my visit to the American Girl store! It was fun to look at all the new releases in person with my dad. BTW: Tommorow is the LAST day to enter my GIVEAWAY or up your bonus entries, so make sure to do that if you wanted to! My dad and I checked out the new, WAY TOO EXPENSIVE, car. The seats are actually real fabric, and there are seatbelts. Still, my 9-12-year-old dolls do not need to drive. Just saying. I took Luci along with me. She accidentally barged into the hotel room of another doll. You can’t blame…

    Dollhouse Tour!

    Hello! Today I decided to give you all a tour of my AG dollhouse! This will not be in video form as I had thought it would before. I thought it would be easier to give you pictures so you can look at details as long as you want. 😉 My dollhouse is made from Ikea shelves and things we have bought and/or collected over the years. You’ve seen parts of it before, but not all. I’ll start at the bottom of the house and move my way up. Luciana and Chen’s Room Sadly, you are always going to find pink and purple (even if it is not realistic) colored doll…
