    Part 1, The Treasure of Lady Travier

    Hey wonderful people! Today starts the beginning of my 1st “choose the way” photo story series! If you would like to know more about how it works, I strongly suggest you read my PREVIOUS POST. I’m not going to chat your head off today, so here it is! It was not unusual for me. I had worked with high society much in the past. I always felt comfortable around those type of people, because I was a person not easily intimidated. I liked my work, and besides, France was beautiful this time of year. When the maid walked me through the Mansion of Lady Travier, I felt nothing unusual. I was…

    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 AG Josefina Face-mold Comparison

    Bring out the trumpets because it’s finally here… The AG Josefina Face-mold Comparison! Today we will be doing exactly as the title says: comparing the face-molds of all my dolls that have the named Josefina face-mold from American Girl! I also decided (with my sister’s permission) to use Julie as well, my sister’s only doll with the Josefina face-mold. Ok, let me start off by saying that I love the Josefina face-mold so much because I think it looks like one of the most realistic ones AG has. The chin is just pointy enough, and it doesn’t look overly chubby. XD Now for some comparison: Out of all these 5 dolls, Grace and…

    Happy Easter! Or was it April Fools…

    Hi Guys! Mckenna here! As Jewel’s first doll, I have taken over the blog for this pretty special day… Can you believe today consists of 2 holidays?! That’s just awesomeness. Everyone knows my favorite holiday is April Fools, right? Well, Raven’s favorite holiday is Easter. I got myself in a slight bit of trouble today when I invaded Raven’s “Happy Easter” post, but I just couldn’t help myself… I came up with a genius prank or stole an idea from Pinterest. I’ll let you see it all for yourself. You’ll get a kick out of it: Raven: Hello, everyone! I am Raven. I’m just here to tell you to have a very…

    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!!!

My sister and I were having fun the other day, dressing the American girls and doing their hair when we decided to finally determine different ages for them.

So now I will make a list of the dolls ages for you, that will be soon posted on the meet the dolls page. Here they are from oldest to youngest. Some are the same age, but…

    Oh… Michaels!!! *Faints*

    Hey Humanity! (Yes I was being silly with the title.) Is anyone else in love with the craft store Michaels?! If you are, definitely leave a,”Hip hip hooray!” in the comments!

    Hi, Peeps in the hood, ( I make myself smile when I say that. And yes… I know you are not actually in my “hood”.
