    Info on My New Photo Series Coming Soon

    Hey Peeps! Are you excited? I am! Finally, I am going to be starting up another photo series! This won’t be just an ordinary photo series too, because I’m going to try a very original idea that my dad gave me quite a while back (maybe when I was making the 30’s!). I guess I just became brave enough to try it. I’m pretty stoked. I know what your screaming in your mind at me. I can hear it through the screen. “WHAT IS IT, JEWEL! SPILL IT!” Ok, if you insist. 😉 My Dollnotebook original photo series idea is: A choose the way photo series. This might require some further explanation. Do…

    The Bangs, Bun, Beautiful Hairstyle!

    Guys! It’s a miracle! I’ve come up with another hairstyle! Well, if by “come up” I mean “slightly alter a style I saw on YouTube,” then yeah! It’s true, I saw something very similar on YouTube, but I adapted it for dolls since they ended up using a flat iron for the original, etc… and we all know using direct heat on your doll’s head can turn out very bad if you are not careful. I’m not sure I would trust myself. Anyway, here it is:  The Bangs, Bun, Beautiful Hairstyle! Now, this style requires that your doll have specific kind of hair. It has to be at least somewhat wavy, not curly,…

    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…

    Making Plum Pie (Photoshoot)

    Yo yo yo! Before this post starts: I would like to say that when I first moved my blog to WordPress my first photo series, The 30’s, lost its pictures for parts 8-10, but I am proud to announce They have been fully restored! If you haven’t read it it’s probably in one of my top accomplishments on this blog so be sure to check it out! Also, for the last few weeks, I totally spaced adding dolls to the Meet the Barbies page, so this week I’ll be adding 3! Anyway on to the photoshoot: We have these miniature edible plums in our backyard, and I realized they were the…

    Doll Life: Roommates Tenney and Rebecca

    Hey YOU AND YOU AND YOU! I’m back from my short break (I’ve already started posting on my personal blog with a post about my cat as the cat from the Lego Ninjago movie). I bring to you my third Doll Life post in which I explain certain aspects of how my AG dolls live. Today: it stars Rebecca and Tenney who share a room in my dollhouse. Let’s discuss how that works out for them… Tenney and Rebecca tend to be opinionated people. You might think that they wouldn’t get along together because of this, but because they tend to mutually share a lot of opinions it works out…

    Short Hiatus

    Hey people 🙂 Yes, you read it right, I’ll be going on a short hiatus for 3 posting days: today (I don’t count this as a post XD), Friday (on my personal blog), and next Tuesday. The reason: My grandparents are visiting! They just got here yesterday. I want to spend some time with them. 🙂 Also, my sister and I are going to be baptized on Sunday, so super exciting! I will still be putting up another Barbie of the week on the Meet the Barbies page though, so keep an eye out for that! I will also be present to respond to any comments and reading posts, so technically…

    Coming Soon! Meet the Barbies!

    Hey guys! I apologize for not getting to post yesterday! I seriously have no excuse… so yeah. Anyway, I have an announcement: I was discussing it with my sis and I have decided to make a Meet the Barbies page! It is not up yet but I hope to get it up by the end of this week so keep an eye out! BUT WAIT! I must warn you we have a lot of barbies, so I have decided to not complete the page in one chunk. Each week, I will add a Barbie/Barbies to the page until I have finished it with all our relevant barbie dolls. That means you can check…

    Many Knots Hairstyle

    Hey, my Peeps! Today I have a  hairstyle that is both super quick and easy, yet it is a great little dash of elegance to your dolls look. 🙂 Ready? Start by brushing out your doll’s hair and misting it to tame it. Separate a very small section of hair on the front side of your doll’s head. Separate that section into 2 pieces. Not too close to the scalp, cross the two pieces: either left over right or right over left. I started with the right piece over left. Then I brought the piece that was underneath the other, over and through the hole. Pull the knot you made to…

    Cami Photoshoot + Blog Button

    Bonjour and good day! Today I have a few photos to share with you of my new favorite Barbie doll, Camerson (Cami for short). She is a Curvy Fashionista doll and you can find her on Amazon right HERE. I bought mine at Walmart. She is one of the dolls that come with extra clothes. After you see the photos I’ll be showing you DN’s new blog button! Yay! My sister and I always come up with stories for our Barbie dolls, so Cami is a computer hacker (of course she uses it for good purposes), and tech wiz. She recently met her long-lost older brother Michael (well actually she was the one…
