Giving The Horses Some Exercise~ A Photostory
Felicity smiled at her beautiful mare, Penny as she led her out of the barn to get some exercise.
“Wow, you’re already ready?” Felicity asked with a chuckle. Kaya grinned and said, “Yes, I’m sorry I took so long. I just wanted to make sure Steps High was thoroughly groomed first.” Felicity smiled playfully. “It’s okay, I’m used to it.” She teased.
The two sisters walked their horses through the small field and chatted away.
“Just think, as soon as Luthien, Eowyn, and Sparks Flying get old enough to ride, we can go riding with Saige, Annika, and Jocelyn!” Kaya said excitedly. She always loved spending time with her sisters outdoors.
“Yeah! I wonder if Jocelyn knows how to ride already…” Felicity and Kaya pondered this a while, until they decided it was time to mount their horses for a short ride.
“FOR NARNIA!” Felicity shouted and Kaya laughed. “What is that?” She inquired. Felicity gasped. “We haven’t watched Narnia together yet, have we?” She asked in disbelief.
“No…?” Kaya said questioningly, wondering what other movie she was going to be getting herself into.
Kaya and Felicity had a great time that afternoon with their very best friends – their horses.
Hi! Oh, my goodness, it was SO hot outside when I took these pictures! And windy, so it was hard to balance Kaya on her horse without a saddle LOL! I was disappointed when I went outside and realized the lighting wasn’t that great for taking pictures, and then when I came inside I looked out the window and the whole area I was taking pictures in got shaded…. 😕
Okay, so a bit of exciting news……. ELLA COMES HOME ON SATURDAY!! YAY!!! 😀 There will definitely be a post about her on that day! 😉
OH! One more thing! I added a new page called “Meet Jaclynn”, so be sure to head over there and check it out! 🙂
Who is your doll’s best friend?
A Tour of My Computer Desk!
Hey everyone! So, I got a new mouse pad and I wanted to show you all, so I thought – why not do a tour of my computer desk? I think you’ll enjoy it, so let’s get on with the tour! 🙂
Here’s my adorable desk! I love the chubby shape of it and the pink and white are perfect for my bedroom! 🙂
Here’s my mouse pad! Isn’t it adorable?! My mom got it for pretty much free from Shutterfly! It’s amazing quality and I seriously adore it! 😀
By my monitor I have my Bitty Beanies and blog business cards, an Anna Infinity Figure, and some adorable buttons my sister gave me! One is of Hera from Star Wars Rebels, one is of Elsa that says “Let It Go”, and the other is of Queen Amidala from Star Wars 🙂 Below you can see on the left I have some Star Wars Rebels cards! Kanan is showing because he’s the best character in that show LOL! I also have my Calico Critters Koala family and you can also just barely see a donut notepad and a planner showing 😉
Over here I have this cute little trinket box, a Vinylmation box signed by Paige O’Hara (in case you don’t know, she’s the voice of Belle in Beauty & The Beast), my Rebels cards (once again LOL!), and in back of the Vinylmation box is a 9″ Donut Vinylmation! 🙂
And on this side are my glasses, a bell (I know it seems like a funny thing to have, but they’re fun! LOL!), and a fan 🙂
So, that’s my computer desk! I hope you liked this post and let me know if you’d like to see more of my room! 🙂
What is your desk like?
Freckles~ A Photoshoot
So, I decided to add freckles to Jocelyn!! I was going through all our markers trying to find a brown washable one, but I couldn’t find one that was labeled washable, so I tested one on Jocelyn’s leg (up near the top where it doesn’t show) and then washed it off. It came out instantly, so I got to work on putting a bunch of cute freckles on Jocelyn’s face! I’m gonna be honest with you, I was really scared and I had to redo her freckles several times before I finally got it right! It was seriously SO much fun, though and it makes me wanna add freckles to some of my other dolls! LOL! So, let’s get on with the photoshoot so you can see the new Jocelyn! 😀
EEE!! I’m seriously so happy!!! I think Jocelyn looks way cuter with freckles!! 😀
You can see better in this picture that I added a single darker freckle by the top right corner of her mouth, and down by her chin on the left. I added those because I have freckles like that on my face 🙂
She really looks so much like me now! Just change the hairstyle to curly, fluffy hair and you’ve got it! LOL!
Well, that’s all the pics! What do you think of Jocelyn with freckles? 🙂
Have you ever added freckles to your doll?
Oh! And I added Jocelyn to the Meet My Dolls page, so be sure to check that out! Thank you all so much for your personality suggestions! They were all so great 😀
Jocelyn & Jane~ A Photoshoot
Hey everyone! This morning the weather was seriously so amazing, so I just had to take some pictures and I thought a photoshoot with two dolls would be fun 🙂
Aren’t they so cute?! 😀
Oh, my goodness, she is SO CUTE!!! LOL!
LOL! I went inside for a minute cause my mom was getting a phone call and when I came back out, they just looked so tiny and adorable! 😀
Okay, I’m loving this picture <3
Now for some edited pics! 😀
And that’s it! That was a lot of pics, huh? At least it felt like it to me LOL!
Do you like photoshoots with one doll, or with multiple dolls?
Jocelyn Marie~ A Photoshoot
Hey everyone! Before I get into the dolly part of this post, lemme just wish my oldest brother, Jacob a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! 😀
Alrighty, now back to the posty (I add y’s to words sometimes because it’s fun LOL!)!
Yes, I got MAG – or now I should say, TrulyMe – #59!!! When my mom peeked in my room to see what dolls were on my wishlist, she got her for me from Jill’s Steals and Deals and I was SO excited!! I’m considering adding freckles to her so she will look more like me… What do you think?
Anyways, yesterday after I finished taking pictures for the photostory, I instantly did a photoshoot of Jocelyn! 😀
She is SO cute!! Her hair is kinda hard for styling, but it’ll be okay. It’s not much different from “Jane’s” 🙂 Oh! And Jocelyn’s middle name is Marie! 😀
I’m not sure what her personality is yet. It’s so hard to think of different personalities when you have 20 dolls LOL! She’s obviously an animal lover, though 😀
I love her chocolate eyes 🙂
Her hair is so pretty! The color is VERY close to mine, only I have red highlights 😉
I FINALLY MUSTERED UP MY COURAGE AND WENT NEAR THE SCARY FLOWERS!!!! LOLOL!!! We’ve always had these pretty flowers in our backyard but I’ve always been so scared to get anywhere near them! I always think that there are rats or something living in there LOL! 😀 XD
Jocelyn is a very beautiful and rather photogenic doll and I am so grateful to have her! She will be added to the “Meet My Dolls” page just as soon as I can come up with a personality for her! 🙂
Do you think I should add freckles to Jocelyn? Do you have any suggestions for a personality?
Have a great day, everyone! 😀
Animal Lover~ A Photostory
Following my new mom’s directions, I headed out back to introduce myself to a couple of my many new siblings. I saw a boy and a girl playing with a little gray husky puppy. They looked friendly, but I myself have always been a shy girl and always felt a little insecure when meeting new people. I wished that my mom, Jaclynn was here to introduce me, but she had something very important to do, so I was on my own. I took a deep breath in and slowly let it out. Okay, I can do this.
I hesitantly walked over to them, but they were so distracted with the puppy that they didn’t even notice I was there. I had hoped they would notice me so they would start up a conversation, but now it was up to me. What was I to say? I guess that “hi” would work, but I felt like my voice would be so soft that they wouldn’t hear me, so instead I cleared my throat to get their attention.
They quickly looked my way, their faces very confused. The puppy however, seemed delighted to see me and started running over to me. The girl called out, “Pepper! Come here!”, but he didn’t listen. He kept right on running until he reached-
-my feet. His tiny tongue tickled so much as he licked away at my toes, I couldn’t help but giggle.
I reached down and gave his ear a little scratch.
“He really likes you!” The girl said kindly and I smiled. “So, who are you?” The boy inquired, still seeming confused.
“I’m Jocelyn. I’m your new sister…” I replied questioningly. I didn’t understand why they were so confused. I thought Jaclynn would have told them I was coming…
The boy and girl looked at each other with surprise. “I can’t believe mommy didn’t tell us!” The girl said in disbelief.
They both came closer and the girl said, “My name is Kiara and this is Dallas.”
“And that’s Pepper.” Dallas announced as he gestured to the little puppy resting by my feet.
“I’m sorry if we seemed a little rude. We were just really caught off guard when you told us you were our sister.” Kiara apologized.
“Oh, it’s okay! I understand.” I assured her.
“So how old are you?” Dallas questioned.
“Fifteen.” I replied.
“You seem to have a really nice way with animals. Do you have a pet?” Kiara inquired.
“No, I don’t, but I have always wanted a dog and a horse!” I said dreamily.
Kiara gasped. “We have to have Lissie, Saige, and Kaya show her the horses!” She exclaimed, looking at Dallas with a huge smile on her face.
“You have horses?!” I asked excitedly and probably a little too loudly. This place just suddenly got amazing!
“Yeah! We have two horses and three foals!” Kiara said, smiling broadly.
“Oh, my gosh!! FOALS?!” I squealed.
Dallas laughed. “Yep! Come on, let’s get Lissie, Saige, and Kaya to introduce you to them!” He suggested.
I eagerly followed Dallas into the house, with Kiara and Pepper not far behind.
Horses? Foals?! Even with how shy I am, my excitement over something can really help me feel so comfortable around people. And Dallas and Kiara were really nice, so I was sure that if the others were anything like them, I was going to absolutely love it here.

Colonial Julie~ A Photoshoot
Hey guys! I hope you’re having a great week so far 🙂 I was very busy today, but this evening I looked outside and decided that the lighting was great for a photoshoot, so I grabbed Julie and headed outside to take some pictures. I hope you like them! I am personally very fond of them 🙂
I love this picture so much!!! At first I was frustrated with the wind, but then I realized I could sorta work with it to get some good pictures! 😀
This is my other favorite picture! 😀
That’s the end of this shoot! I hope you all enjoyed them! 🙂
Do you think Julie makes a good colonial girl?
Yes. I finished writing the finale of all of my pirate stories. It took me a couple of minutes just to write “The End” and to click “Save Draft”. I got teary as I stared at the last sentence of the story, knowing that it was all over. My pirate stories have been so important to me and I feel like all of the characters are real people. They’re a part of me. Now that it’s over, I just feel so sad. Knowing that I will never again write another pirate story… 🙁
I have written 14 total pirate stories. The last one is my longest having 20 parts! I hope that you will all enjoy each of these stories just as much as I did writing them. I can’t wait to start posting them again! 😀
Around the time I was making Fire Cove Season 2, I made some posters for it that never got posted, so I thought I’d share one of them with you today 🙂
Ahhh…. Wow. Jake and Victoria……. The beginning of it all….. :’)
Since pirate stories have been my main focus for such a long time, I feel like it’s going to be hard to start writing other stories. I’m hoping that I’ll get into the flow of writing non-pirate stories easily and feel just as comfortable writing those as I did writing my pirate stories 🙂
How do you feel when you finish writing a story, or any big project that you’ve poured your heart into? Relieved? Happy? Sad?
My Brother Got ENGAGED!!!
EEE!!! I am just the happiest little sister right now!! Today was truly an AMAZING day!! My brother, Jordan has been dating his awesome girlfriend, Aaryn for almost a year (it’ll be a year tomorrow!) and today he popped the question! Jordan and Aaryn went skydiving for their one year anniversary of being together, and my mom made a huge banner that said “Aaryn, will you marry me?” so that as she was falling she could see it! Jordan wanted both families involved so we were all there to see him propose and it was just seriously so amazing!
I am seriously SO happy for them!! They are a perfect pair and they love each other with all their hearts! I’m so excited to soon be able to call Aaryn my sister 😀
CONGRATULATIONS, JORDAN AND AARYN!! I love you both SO much and I can’t wait to see what amazing plans God has in store for you!!! <3
Riven-Delle’s Writing Day
Hi everyone! If you’ve gone to the “Meet My Dolls” page, you’d know that I love to write! Today, I am having a writing day and I thought I’d share a few tips for having a successful writing day 🙂
First off, get comfortable. Wear some soft, comfy pants and a t-shirt. Put on a hairstyle that makes you feel ready to work! Some people like to just stay in their pj’s all day when they write and leave their hair down, but I like to get dressed and do my hair, so I feel ready to tackle my story!
Next, always have a water bottle or a glass of water near you. If you plan to sit down for a few hours and write, you’ll tend to get thirsty, so water is always a good thing to have with you 🙂
If you tend to get distracted easily, shut the door so you feel alone and can concentrate more easily on your work.
Now you’re ready to write! Some people do their writing on paper, but I like to do mine on the computer. It goes faster for me and it’s much easier to correct any mistakes 🙂
Remember, if you hit a dead end and you just can’t seem to push through the wall, maybe it’s time to take a break for a while. Usually when that happens to me, I take it as a sign that I need to stop for the day and think on it some more. If you force it too much, you may end up getting frustrated and stop writing for a week (maybe more).
Well, I hope these tips helped you! I’m gonna get started on my writing now, so maybe I’ll “see” you again soon! Bye for now! 🙂
Hey, it’s Jaclynn now! I’m having a writing day myself and I thought I’d let you all know something…..
….. I’m working on writing the FINALE of my pirate stories!!! NOOOO!!! Oh, I’m going to die when it all ends. Probably cry. I’ll definitely miss writing them, but I’m excited to see how you will all like them and I hope that I can continue to write different stories that you’ll love just as much 🙂
Do you or your dolls enjoy writing?
