Hey everyone! Thank you all so much again for all of your birthday wishes! I had a really nice day and I got some great stuff!! So I’m gonna show you what I got (remember, I’m not bragging at all. I just know that a lot of peeps like to see hauls, and I wanna show you cause I’m excited )!! 😀 Oh, and there are some non-AG things mentioned in this post, too 😉
Two of the things I got are the Birthday Accessories (sorry if I’m wrong about names. I really cant remember what these are called 😛 ) and the Birthday Outfit! And oh, my goodness, I can’t believe I’ve had Saige for 2 years! It seems like she JUST came out!
Here’s the front of the birthday card. Coconut is so adorable!
And here’s the inside of the card
It actually opens! So you can actually put little things in there! 😀 Oh, and sorry about my pants in the picture LOL! 😛
The sleeves are super cute, too!
This purse is SO cute!! I love it!!
I LOVE this bow!! It’s SO pretty!! I know I’ll be using this A LOT! 😀
I got the Bruno Tsum Tsum!!! Isn’t he ADORABLE?! 😀
Okay, so I also got a caramel leather jacket with a grey hood, a black duster jacket, a white ruffly tank top, a shirt that says “Warning: I know all the words to Frozen and I will sing them to you.”, some money, and ONE other BIG thing that I am saving to show you for another post! PLUS there’s the other big thing that I bought which is coming on Wednesday!! EEEEK!! I can’t WAIT to show you these two things!!! 😀
Have a nice day! 😀
Oh, my goodness! Tomorrow it will mark one week exactly until the Hillside Farms Holiday Craft Fair! I must admit that I haven’t been doing much crocheting for the past couple of months, cause in my head I think “Oh, there’s plenty of time!” and so at night I would just sit and watch movies while doing things on my iPod…. Ugh, so bad. Now that it’s a week away I am feeling majorly stressed! I still have so much to make and so little time! Eeks! 😕
Anyways, I didn’t want to fully neglect all of you for a week, so my mom gave me the idea to post about my preparation for the craft fair! I thought it was a great idea, so here we go!
I usually bring seven of my dolls to the craft fair each year, but since I have SO many new costumes (I’m planning to have every single main Disney Princess dress), I decided that I need to bring them all (and my friend Emma is loaning me one of her dolls to be Merida. Thank you SO much)! But that was a problem. I needed to find a way to make sure they all could fit, and also have some room to lay my other products on the table. So today I got the table out and made all of my dolls fit on top! YAY! 😀 The ones in the back are going to be raised up, too, but I need to buy some more risers, so that’s why they aren’t even with the others 😛
Then after that, I needed to see if our big 30 gallon bin, would hold all 15 dolls, and it did!! But I need to buy a new one for myself because my mom uses that bin for all of her stuff 😉
Now I am off to crochet! This whole next week is going to be crazy busy, but I promise, you will still see some posts from me!
Bye for now!
Oh, dear! What am I going to do with Anna and Merida? Yesterday they did something pretty sneaky….
“Are you sure it’s okay to be out here?” Anna asked. “Yeah! The door was open, so we came out! If you don’t wanna be out here, then go inside.” Merida replied.
Merida walked off and Anna stood there watching her.
“Well, the door was open…” Anna said to herself, then hurried to join her sister.
“You wanna climb this slide?” Merida asked excitedly.
“I don’t know… Prob’ly not.” Anna said, unsure if I would be okay with that.
Anna and Merida walked around the yard for awhile, then finally they stopped and just stood.
“Merida? Are you mad?” Anna asked, breaking the silence.
“Everything fun I wanna do, you’re saying no to.” Merida replied with a tone of annoyance.
“I like fun, but I don’t know if mama would want us to do those things.” Anna explained.
Merida hung her head down and didn’t say a word. “Merida?” Anna asked.
Merida swooshed her head away from her sister. “I’m sorry, Merida.” Anna said sweetly, but Merida didn’t move.
“Do you wanna play hide and seek?” Anna asked. Merida turned her head slightly with a little smirk.
“1….2….3….4….” Merida stood by a pole and counted to ten.
Anna found a place to hide and giggled. “She won’t find me here!” She thought.
“HERE I COME!” Merida yelled.
Merida walked around, then she tilted her head…
“FOUND YOU!!” Merida yelled from across the pool. Anna laughed and laughed.
Anna ran over to her sister, still laughing. “How’d you find me?” Anna asked. “I saw your hair!” Merida replied.
I realized that Anna and Merida were nowhere in the house, so I decided to look outside. “Anna, Merida, what are you doing out here?” I asked firmly.
Anna hung her head down and Merida stared to the side with a smirk.
“Anna, do you want to tell me what you’re doing out here?” I asked gently, but Anna shook her head “no”.
I sighed and looked over at Merida. “How about you tell me?” I asked. Merida’s smirk grew bigger, and I knew, by the look in her eyes, that I was in for a very dramatic (and not true) story…
Do you have any sneaky “kids”?
While my family and I don’t celebrate Halloween, I still enjoy dressing up and going to a local church for games and (of course) CANDY! I’m being Elsa for Halloween, who are you going to be?
Anyways, I hope you enjoy this little photostory!
“I’m so glad that my mom and dad said I could have some friends over for a sleepover!” Annika said. “Me, too! Thanks for having us over, Annika!” Kiara said with a smile. “No problem! So, I made some cupcakes and frosted them in yours and Clara’s favorite colors! And we also bought a little box of truffles. Gotta have candy!” Annika said with a giggle.
….But soon enough, they fell asleep.
What did you and your dollies do for Dolloween?
I’ve noticed a few blogs have been taking family photos of their dolls, and I’ve always wanted to do that, but because I have so many, it would take HOURS to get them all ready, so I never did it. But- it is time to stop being lazy, LOL! 😛
Back row, left to right- Addy, Josefina, Felicity, Kirsten, Rebecca, Kanani, Marie-Grace, Caroline, and Saige.
Bottom row, left to right- Beth, Annika, Kendra, Cecile, Caleb, Samantha, Jeremy, Kaya, Mickey, Jess, Minnie, Clara, and Janie
I took a family photo of all of my AG dolls (including my sisters) on Saturday and I think it turned out great! It was so neat to see them all set up together I was going to do a family photo that included everyone in my doll family, which would include MyTwinn, Disney Toddler Dolls, and other baby dolls, but I didn’t have room anywhere to get a picture of all of them! So maybe some day I’ll get a family picture of my non-AG dolls 😉
Who is in your American Girl Doll family?
Yes, it’s finally here! If you would like to be refreshed by what is going on- go read the previous parts by clicking here
I went on my way to seek out Aldera, the woman who had cursed Eiden when he was little. And then I found her, smack in the middle of nowhere. “Why, Elexa, long time no see. Last I saw you, you were only 5 years old.” Aldera greeted.
“Enough of the fake kindness, Aldera, I need to speak with you, about Eiden…” I finished softly.
Aldera’s face turned cold. “I can’t bring him back, dear, if that’s what you want.”
“Oh, I think you can. Please, I already caused my father’s death, I don’t want to be responsible for Eiden’s, too!” I cried. Aldera smirked and then laughed. “You foolish girl! Your brother isn’t dead, he’s asleep and that curse can never be broken.” I looked at her in surprise. “But, if you made the curse, can’t you undo it?” I asked.
“I could, but I don’t want to. Your brother destroyed my castle and that took away almost all of my powers! If I were ever to break that curse, I would need to receive something very special and useful to me in return. Which considering why you ran away, I know you won’t give that.” Aldera stated.
“No, I will! I’ll give you anything you want!” I said hopefully.
A little grin spread across Aldera’s face. “Anything?” She asked.
“Anything. All I want is my brother back. What do you want?” I inquired.
“I want- your powers.” Aldera said while smiling.
“Wh- what do you want with my powers?” I asked.
Aldera stepped more closely to me and whispered, “You’ve heard the tale of Snow White, of course. Well that queen wanted to be the fairest of them all, but I want to be the most powerful of them all. If you give me your powers, I will bring your brother back.” I thought hard before replying then asked, “No one will get hurt, will they?” Aldera looked surprised and said, “Why, of course not! I would never dream of it! Do we have a deal?” What I didn’t notice was that she was crossing her fingers behind her back.
I held out my hands and sighed. “Deal.”
And with a wide grin, Aldera removed my powers.
When they were removed, I felt weak, and it caused me to fall to the floor.
“Oh, don’t worry. That’s bound to happen after having your powers removed. You’ll wake up, just as soon as I get rid of you.” She said and with a wave of her wrist-
-I was transported back to my ice palace.
“Eiden!” I yelled as I noticed him still lying on the floor.
“Eiden, are you alright? Wake up!” I said as I shook his shoulder.
“Elexa? Wh- what happened?” Eiden asked as he began to sit up.
“It’s okay. I gave up my powers to Aldera so she would bring you back.” I explained.
“Y- you gave up your powers for me? But, the reason you left is because you didn’t want your powers taken away.” Eiden said, confused.
“I know, but you’re my brother, and you mean more to me than any magical power in the world.” I said with a smile.
Eiden embraced me in his best brotherly hug. Then Eiden said, “Come on, let’s go home and see Mother.”
That’s the end of Part 4! Look for Part 5 coming soon! 😀
I was in my new ice cottage using my magic to make things colder, when suddenly-
Eiden burst in! “Elexa stop!!” Eiden shouted. I was disgusted at the sight of him. My own brother betrayed me. All of a sudden, I got furious and felt myself shaking in anger.
“So, after all these weeks my betraying brother comes to look for me.” I said angrily.
Eiden ignored me and said, “Elexa, what have you done to this poor young woman? She’s ice cold!” I just glared at him. “Anyone who is my slave must be COLD!” I yelled.
“You know, perhaps neither one of you is cold enough…”
Just as I shot out my ice Eiden pushed Abigail forward and said, “DUCK!” I missed them!
Eiden helped Abigail get up and tied his cape around her. “Take this and get out of here!” Eiden whispered and she ran off.
“Oh, that was very wise, brother. Now tell me, why have you just now come to look for me? Why did you agree to have my powers removed?! I thought you knew me better than that, Eiden!” I yelled angrily with tears in my eyes.
“I wanted to come after you, Elexa! But Mother wouldn’t allow it. She said it was dangerous….” Eiden’s voice trailed off as he realized that calling me dangerous would make very angry.
I raised my hands in the air and yelled, “I am not- DANGEROUS!!!”
And with that, I shot out my ice and to my surprise, Eiden shot out a fire ball!
I struggled to beat his fire with my ice and he was trying to beat me, so I put my hands down. “You surprise me, Eiden. I did not know that your powers were so strong.”
“Elexa, please, let’s talk about this. No more magic.” Eiden was out of breath as we spoke.
“Oh, no. We’ve only just begun this fight.” I said and brought myself up into a cloud of snow and ice.
I shot out an icy blast and-
Eiden quickly shot out some fire and jumped to the floor to dodge my magic.
Eiden stayed on the floor for a second- breathing heavily.
“Come on traitor, get up and fight!” I said.
“Please, no more magic. I can’t do it.” Eiden said in a whisper. “There will be magic.” I said.
Then I shot out my ice and he his fire.
Eiden was only able to hold his fire a couple of seconds and then fell to the ground.
“Eiden, get up!” I demanded. I was very tired of him falling to the ground after each time we used magic. As I studied him more closely, I realized that he wasn’t breathing. Was he unconscious?
I went down to him and shook his shoulder. “Eiden? Eiden, please get up!” I said with tears in my eyes. It was too late. He was gone.
“Oh, Eiden. I’m so sorry!” I cried.
Then I sat up as I remembered something from when we were little kids. A voice rang in my head saying,
“For destroying my home with your fire, I hereby curse you to never use magic unless the situation is dire. If you use it just once, just for fun, your life will be done. But if you use it in great need, three times I allow you indeed. After the third time, you will fall and never attend your future engagement ball!”
I gasped, “Eiden was cursed, and had to promise never to use his magic. And I made him do it. I must find the woman who brought this upon him!”
That’s the end of Part 3! Look for the next part coming soon! 😀
My name is Elexa and I am the daughter of Queen Elsa and Jack Frost. My parents are the rulers of a small kingdom in Norway by the name of Arendelle. Just a few years ago (when I was 18), my life was insane and I did something that will haunt me all my life. This is my story:
I gazed at my personal picture of my father, Jack Frost. I closed my eyes and I saw images and heard voices in my head of the day my father died….
I gasped- “Papa!”
As soon as I saw my father and realized I was striking him with my ice, I stopped my magic.
I gazed at him lying on the ground- he was gone.
I cried and cried….
“Oh, Papa. If I’d have only known you were standing behind me you would still be alive. You’d still be here with us. It’s been three weeks now….I love you and I miss you with all my heart!” I cried.
Then I heard voices outside and I was certain that I heard my name, so I looked out the window. It was Mother and Eiden!
“Mother, are you sure you want to do that to Elexa? Taking away her powers for what happened….” Eiden’s voice trailed off as he thought of his father. “That just doesn’t seem right. It was only an accident.” Eiden continued. Eiden was my twin brother and we’ve always been very close. I was glad he was defending me!
“No, Eiden. Elexa has been using her powers too much. Something like that should not be used lightly. I’ve seen a change in her, too. She seems more serious and she is focusing too hard on her power and I know what that’s like.” Mother had been forced to hide her magic all her life, then when her and her sister, Anna got into a little fight, her magic powers were revealed. She had run away on her coronation night and almost turned into a monster. But now, she has control over her powers and no one is afraid of her.
“Well, if you think it’s best….” Eiden replied. “What?! Eiden how could you!” I yelled, but in a whisper, so no one would hear.
“I’ll start searching for a way to remove her powers immediately. But I’m going to have a talk with Elexa first.” Mother said.
“Remove my powers? That would be like taking away my life! There’s no way I’m gonna allow that to happen. I need to leave…” I said to myself.
I looked once more at the picture of my father and slipped away. I was headed towards the woods.
“I should’ve changed my dress!” I grumbled as I ran through the trees. Then I noticed a small cottage and decided to see if anyone lived there.
“My Lady! To what do I owe this honor of having you visiting my house?” The lady at the cottage asked. I saw something in her and I knew exactly what I wanted her to do for me.
“I’d like to stay here for awhile an-” I was cut off by the woman.
“Oh, certainly, My Lady! I’d be happy to have you stay here for the night!” The woman replied. “Thank you, now tell me, what is your name?” I asked. “Oh, yes, it’s Abigail.” She replied.
“Wonderful! Now Abigail, there’s one more thing I’d like for you to do for me.” I said. “Anything, My Lady!” Abigail replied. I grinned and said, “I need you to be my slave…”
That’s all for Part One! The next part will be coming soon!! I hope you like it so far! 😀
Jake went over to Captain Coronado to thank her again. “I can’t tell you how grateful I am to ye.” Jake said.
“Aye, I know ye are. Twas the least I could do.” Captain Coronado replied. Then she reached into her desk and pulled something out of it…
“Here, I want ye to have this. It will bring ye wisdom. But, ye must promise never to take yer eyes off it! Any evil pirate would die fer a special item as this.” Captain Coronado explained.
“Thank ye. And, aye, ye have my word.” Jake promised.
“Now then. Ye best get prepared for battle. Blackheart will have heard of what I done and I’m sure she’ll be comin’ after ye with ships and cannons. Ye must be ready.” Captain Coronado stated.
“Aye, we’ll start preparin’ for battle right away.” Jake said.
I had been talking with Siara, but as soon as I heard Jake mention battle I turned my head towards him. I didn’t want to have anything to do with a battle. But since Jake thought it was best, I knew it was only right for me to follow him- whether I liked it or not.
Meanwhile, Blackheart was on the hunt for me and Jake. I knew she would not rest until we were back in her cells.
“Captain Jones! Captain! Captain!” Blackheart’s deckhand called. “Aye, what is it?!” Blackheart shouted. “It’s a note! It’s about The Code!” The deckhand explained. “WHAT?!” Blackheart yelled furiously and snatched the note from his hand.
The note said: “Code number 12 has hereby been terminated by Captain Coronado- The Keeper of The Code.”
Blackheart exclaimed in disgust. She threw the note to the ground and squished it with her foot.
“YOU! Bring me some paper NOW! I have me own little note I need to write. Thar troubles are far from over…” Blackheart ordered.
“Aye, Cap’n!” He said and scurried off.
“Victoria, we have to be prepared to defend ourselves!” Jake stated. I had been talking with him about the battle. I know I had decided to follow him, but I just didn’t want there to be any battle.
“I know, but perhaps we could try reasoning with her first!” I said.
“Uh, ‘scuse me, but while ye were talkin’ a bird dropped this here note. Ye might wanna take a look.” Siara said.
Jake read aloud: “As Captain Blackheart Jones’ second in command, I regret to inform you that Captain Jones is dead. Ye are now free from her wrath. Captain Reed.”
“What? Sh-she’s dead? But how? What on earth happened?” I was in a state of shock. It didn’t make sense to me that she died.
“It don’t say what happened. But as the note said- we don’t have to worry ’bout her fighting us anymore.” Siara said. I know that Blackheart was evil and mean, but I still felt sad that she died.
Jake was staring at the deck. “I don’t know. This doesn’t make sense to me. Blackheart is the best pirate around. It doesn’t seem likely to me that she just died. Ah, well, I’m sure it’s true. We did get a note from Captain Reed…” I walked over to Jake and said-
“Yes, Jake. It’s all over. We may finally live and sail forever- in peace.”
Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday!! First I have to say that I won’t be posting the Grand Finale of Fire Cove today because I have to do some errands with my mom, but I will hopefully have it up tomorrow!
Now, shall we get started? 😀
“Here is Kit,modeling a headband I made for my etsy shop!” Submitted by Grace AG Lover
The last few photos are from C-
“My recent thrift shop finds! There is a store near my house that is known for having shelves full of dolls! If anyone could help me identify them, that would be great!”
“This is one of my finds! I paid $2 for her! I think she is an Ariel Animator’s Collection doll.”
“I also found this Madame Alexander doll for only $4. She needs a lot of help. Her head is super wobbly and her limbs are too. The number on her tag reads 32009 004403. If anyone knows what doll she is or if it is possible to tighten her limbs and head let me know!”
