AAAAH!! Oh, my gosh!!!! Who wants to see a picture of one Grace Thomas’ outfits?! If you don’t please DO NOT look below!
Okay, yes, it is a small picture, but if you go to americangirl.com and search “grace” her Travel Outfit will pop up! I am absolutely LOVING HER OUTFIT!!!!! I can’t wait to buy her in February!!! 😀
THUMBS UP AG!!!!
What do you think of her outfit?
P.S. Click on the picture and then zoom in to see it better!
So, I kind of randomly felt like putting Kaya on her horse, Steps High and do you know what happened right when I put her on? That’s right! I had an idea!!
But an idea for what exactly? An idea for another photostory series!!! I already have a few things planned out! I’m really excited about it and I can’t wait to make it- once my pirate series is done of course! 😀
What do you think it might be about?
Hello everyone! Today I got a request to do an interview with my “kids” of what they think of the story and their characters. So, I decided to do it! Annika’s answers will be in purple and Elijah’s will be in green 🙂
How do you like being a pirate?
“I really enjoy acting as a pirate! I would never have thought that I would like being one, but it is just really fun! I know a lot of people think that pirates are bad, but you know there are also some really good ones! Like, they’re not entirely good because they pilfer and sometimes- harm people, but there are some good ones like Victoria and Elinor, who mostly look for buried treasure.”
“I love it. It’s awesome! I really love my character because Jake is so cool and good, but he’s also bad, and he’s just awesome! I mean seriously, I can use a sword and swing on ropes! PLUS I get to wear an awesome black coat!”
How do you like your character?
“That is a really good question! I really like Victoria. She is so nice and caring and always wants to do the right thing. Something I really like about her is that she was a super, and I mean super rich girl and she gave up that life to be a pirate. Like if she had stayed in her rich life she would never have a care in the world, but since she chose the life of a pirate, I’m sure that she definitely worries about a lot of things.”
“Aw, man! I don’t even know where to start! Jake is so cool! He’s brave and cool and just- I don’t know! Like I said earlier he’s good and bad. I think the best way to put it is that he’s a bad guy, but he has a good heart. Well, yeah there’s some bad in his heart of course, but deep down he is really a great guy. Like the only reason he is bad is because his dad and other pirates made him that way. His dad made him wanna leave and be a pirate and after being one for six years and other pirates saying he was the ‘Weakest Pirate’ that just really hurt him. So yeah, I think he’s a good guy.”
How are Jake and Victoria doing right now?
“Victoria is of course, very heartbroken. I mean she loved Jake and he tricked her and lied to her, so Victoria is in a rough spot right now.”
“Well, I’d say Jake is pretty happy and content right now. He has The Cube of Light, power and, yeah. He’s doing alright. But he feels a little bad for lying to Victoria which is why I think he promised that Elena would be okay.”
What does the rest of this series hold in store for us?
“Oh, that’s a really hard one! I guess to sum it all up I’d say it’s going to have excitement, sorrow, and-”
“Yeah, pretty much. As well as, hmmm.. How do I put this? Stress. I believe some of the audience will be stressed and there may also be some anger…”
“I don’t think there’s anger.”
“Yeah, maybe not…”
Many people are wondering if there is still hope that Jake and Victoria will get together?
“Well, you never know. If Jake apologizes to Victoria and turns from the ‘dark side’, then who knows?”
“I find it very unlikely. Jake has power now and that’s all that’s important to him. Why would he give that up, right?”
Why can’t pirates be married?
“Well, before you become a pirate there are several things you must agree to. There’s a big book and all pirates call it ‘The Code’. In that book are several rules or terms that you have to live by as a pirate. And sadly one of them is that you can’t marry. The reason is because if a pirate were to be married they would constantly be looking out for their husband or wife and protecting them from harm. They’d be putting each other first, but according to another ‘Code’ it clearly says ‘Every man for himself’ and ‘Any pirate who falls behind gets left behind’. So, that is why pirates are not allowed to marry.”
Thank you Annika and Elijah for joining us today! We hope to do this again soon!
Hey everyone! Before we start the photostory I have to let you know something:
When my dolls go to Camp Doll Diaries they aren’t gonna be my “kids” that are going, but they will all be from different families and will be friends 🙂
Now that I’ve given you that piece of information, let’s get on with the story!
“Clara! Clara! Clara!!” Rebecca screamed as she came bursting through the bedroom door.
“Now that you’ve scared me half to death, what is it?” Clara asked with a smile, but still trying to catch her breath. She was very startled.
“Look! We got a postcard and it says that Camp Doll Diaries will be starting on June 2nd!!” Rebecca said.
“That’s super soon and this year you can come with me because now you’re old enough! Isn’t that exciting? We’ll have so much fun together!!” Rebecca said excitedly.
“Oh, yeah, that’s real exciting.” Clara said as she turned her head away.
“Clara? What’s wrong? I thought you’d be sooo excited! You were really sad when you couldn’t go last year.” Rebecca said, feeling confused.
Clara got up from her desk and walked over to the vanity. “I know, Becca, it’s just that…. Well, I think I’ll stay here again. It really wasn’t so bad last year.” Clara said sadly.
“Clara, you said you were super lonely and bored with me gone all summer. Now, what’s really wrong?” Rebecca asked.
“I know what I said last year, and it was true. I really was sad, but now that I’m old enough and now that it’s here-” Clara paused for a moment. She was ashamed to say how she felt because Rebecca was so outgoing and brave. Clara really looked up to her. Finally, somehow she managed to get out the words, “The truth is, Rebecca, I’m scared! I’m not going to know anyone or how to do anything! I’m the type of girl who’d like to stay inside and read a book or watch movies! I just don’t think I could handle it.” Clara cried.
“Oh, Clara! I understand how you feel. I felt the same way when I first went to camp. But I promise you that you’ll be just fine! You’re going to love camp and make lots of new friends! And if you want, you could spend all of your time in the crafting cabin or sitting on your bed reading a book. No matter what you choose to do, I know you’ll have the time of your life!” Rebecca explained.
“Thanks, Rebecca! I guess I’ll go, but I probably won’t stop being scared until after the first day of camp.” Clara said with a little smile. She was still very nervous, but if what her sister said was true, she thought she might as well give it a try.
Today, my mom and I did some crafting! We had SO much fun making these things for Camp Doll Diaries!
Have you started preparing for Camp? Do you have a “child” who’s as scared as Clara?
So, before I post the giveaway I just wanted to point out (in case you haven’t noticed) that my amazingly talented mom, made me a new BEAUTIFUL banner!! I LOVE it so much!!! Much better than the other one 🙂
Okie-dokie! I’m gonna start working on the giveaway post! Bye for now!
I’ve been working on my room today and that mostly means, cleaning up my doll area! 😛
My doll’s room is SO MESSY and there are clothes all over the place along with hair ribbons, clips, brushes, etc. It really looks, well- sick! LOL!
Anyways, right now I am organizing my doll clothes… Ugh!! I feel like I do this ALL the time! I just can’t seem to be able to keep it nice! 😕
Here is what the middle of my floor looks like right now. That little bare spot is where I’m sitting. I literally can not move! 😛
I’m hoping that now that I have 4 bins, it will be easier to keep organized and looking nice.
When I’m all finished organizing I will show you how it worked out! 🙂
How do you store your doll clothes?
Wish me luck!
Hi Girls! I haven’t posted a story for a while, but I have exciting news that Annika is going to share with you (along with Caroline 😉 )! I’ll let her take it from here-
“Hello everyone! Mommy has given me an assignment to tell you something super exciting!! Okay, here it is…
We are all getting ready for a BRAND NEW Photostory Series that will be starting up in a week or two! We are very excited and although there are some who aren’t in the series (or who may be playing very minor roles) they’re excited, too because we all share a part in each photostory.” 🙂
“Annika! Look at these ribbons!!” Caroline said opening the drawer.
“These purple ones will go great with my outfit!! And the green ones are PERFECT for you!!” Caroline squealed.
“You’re right! We’ll have to ask mommy if they wear ribbons in the movie.” I replied.
“Well, I have to go now! There is still so much to do and we all have to help each other. I hope you all are having a great day! Bye!” *Whispers* “Caroline, say bye to everyone!”
“Oh, right! Bye everyone!” Caroline said.
P.S. Jaclynn here! If you have more name ideas for the MAG in “What Would You Name Her” there is still time to submit them! Today is the LAST DAY! 😉
