    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…

    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…

    The Presumed Princess, A Photostory

    ‘Ello Mates. Jewel here! Can you BELIEVE it is almost Christmas?! It is so exciting! Next week, I plan to post a Christmas photostory, but I’m still having trouble uploading photos, so today I’ll be sharing the photo story I had made for Natalie and Emmie’s Fall Photostory Competition. The contest was sadly canceled with me being the only person that sent in a story that didn’t have to be disqualified, but they plan to possibly do it again maybe in the summer, so please consider entering it next year if you are interested! Anyway, this was my short audition story, using the prompts of “Rose” and “Princess”: Dear Diary, I’ve had an…

    Kit Wanders (A Photoshoot)

    Greetings! I haven’t taken Kit out for a photoshoot lately so I decided to do so today. (: I had fun putting together her outfit. She is wearing her shoes and bracelet from her Meet Outfit, Tenney’s vest, Saige’s white jeans from her Picnic Outfit, and Maryellen’s headscarf from her Play Outfit. I really love this one with the bokeh and sun! Kit is absolutely adorable. She is definitely one of my cutest AG dolls. Rebecca is up there too… Yay! Kit is my daring one for sure. She actually fell off this wood bench thing ^ and luckily I caught her before her face had a chance to get scraped. Yikes. That’s doll…

    Hi guys! I’m so sorry about this being late. I had a science test yesterday that took up a lot of time, but here it is, part five of the 30’s!!!

    Update

    Hello Everyone! Since I got in Part Four of the 30’s so late I’m gong to give everyone the time to get to read it before I post the next part. Plus I need time to make sure everything is perfectly done for part 5. So the next posting won’t be until Friday. In the meantime, here is one of my favorite photos from the series in black and white and color! It was featured in Part Three. I like this one because it gets a full shot of her, I love her walking pose and the background, and (even though she doesn’t) I like her dress. (: Do you…
