girl of the year
YAY! It’s here!! If you haven’t seen the last part, or perhaps just forgot what happened, check it out by clicking here
Alrighty, you all caught up? Great! Let’s get started! 😀
The woman dragged them down to the basement.
“I have something planned for the two of you. You shall never see each other again!” The lady shouted with an evil look on her face.
She shoved them to the floor, hurried out of the empty room, and locked the door behind her.
Sadie ran to the door and began pounding on it. “Let us out!!” Sadie screamed, but Amy came up to her and touched her shoulder.
Sadie flinched at the touch of Amy’s hand and cried, “I can’t be stuck in here again!” Amy and Sadie stood there in silence.
“You’ve been down here before?” Amy inquired with a sympathetic look.
Sadie nodded, trying to hold back her tears.
“I’m so sorry, Sadie.” Amy said softly, not really knowing what to say.
“HOW DARE MARK!” Sadie shouted, and banged against the door again.
“I know, it was wrong of him.” Amy said calmly.
“HOW CAN YOU BE SO CALM!” Sadie cried, tears streaming down her cheeks.
“Sadie, believe me, I’m upset, too, but right now isn’t the time to be playing the blame game. Let’s just try to think of a way out of here.” Amy advised.
“Fine.” Sadie replied, but then the door shook and it opened.
Sadie jerked forward, but Amy grabbed her arm and held her back.
The woman appeared in the doorway with two guards. “That one, take her to the train station along with the others.” The lady ordered, pointing at Sadie –
– and one of the guards grabbed her.
DUN DUN DUUUN!
Emma will be posting the next part on her blog soon! 😀
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?
It was my mom’s birthday, just a couple days after we had been offered the puppy and Mom and I were getting anxious for my dad’s reply. We wondered if maybe he would say yes today, since it’s my mom’s birthday…
My mom was sitting at the dining table, scrolling through Facebook on her phone and drinking her caramel coffee.
I walked in after catching up on some blogs I follow on the computer and said, “I wonder if daddy’s gonna say yes today…”
Mom looked at me and lightly shrugged her shoulders. “I don’t know.” She replied. We chatted a while longer and a text message popped up on my mom’s phone from my dad. My heart started to race. He was never on his phone at work, only when he called my mom at lunch. Maybe he was just saying “Happy Birthday”, but my hopes were raised.
I watched anxiously as my mom read her text and a smile spread across her face and her fingers began typing back.
“What did he say?” I asked with a heart full of hope.
My mom smiled at me and said, “He said ‘Have decided to let you have the puppy. Happy Birthday, I love you!'”
I started to cry and squealed and I gave my mom a huge hug. I couldn’t believe he actually said yes! And that this was even real! We were getting a puppy!!
“Are you going to tell everybody today?” I inquired. “Yeah, I think so! Probably at dinner.” She replied. “I wonder how Dallas will take it…” I said, thinking about my brother who had just lost his dog almost a year ago. I know it still hurt him, so I wondered how he would feel about having another dog around.
“He’ll probably be how I was. Maybe a little sad at first, but then happy to have a puppy around again.” Mom replied.
I nodded my head and smiled broadly. “I can’t believe we’re getting a puppy!!”
This concludes part 2! Look for part 3 coming soon!
P.S. The next photostory to be up will be the next part of Sadie’s Hope!
Hey everyone! Today I thought I’d brave the heat and take a photoshoot of the beautiful Rebecca for you all! She’s been dressed and ready for a photoshoot for like two weeks now… I probably would’ve done it last week, but my gramma was visiting, so I didn’t have much of a chance to post 😉
So here are the pictures!
She’s so pretty!!! OH MY GOSH!! LOL!
I am in love with these stick on earrings!
Isn’t she so beautiful?! I seriously love her in Saige’s Sparkle Dress, too! 😀
I hope you enjoyed the pictures! I loved taking them and making this post! I’m listening to Disney songs as I type this, so that just makes everything fun! 😀
Oh and very important for those of you who have been waiting- Sadie’s Hope Part 3 was posted on Emma’s blog, so make sure you go read it!
What are your thoughts on Rebecca?
Hey everyone! I’m starting a little series here and I’ll probably get each part up weekly or maybe twice a week. And no, Sadie’s Hope is not cancelled. We’re hoping to have the next part up by next week sometime So without further ado, I present to you – “An Unexpected Gift”
“It was SO good, though, but I just wanna watch more!” She giggled as she leaned forward on the couch to get up.
Annika’s mom went on her phone to see a FaceBook message and Annika leaned in to read it, too. It said,
“Hi Riven-Delle! I remember reading a while back that you lost your doggy, and I wanted to offer to gift you a Labrador Retriever puppy! She’s due in a few days, so let me know ”
“Wow… That is so sweet.” Mom breathed in her awe and sad struck daze. Since it was nearing a year since their last dog’s passing, she felt really sad thinking about her.
“She’s offering to GIFT it to us?” Annika asked, making sure she read that right. “Yeah, gift.” Mom repeated. “Oh, my gosh! That is so nice…” Annika said, her voice trailing off. She thought of how sweet that lady was to offer to do that. She thought of her brother’s dog that passed away almost a year ago. And she realized how much she wanted to have a dog again. “I wish we could take it… We can’t, huh?” She asked.
“I don’t know. I don’t think so.” Mom replied. Annika felt sad inside. She knew that her dad wouldn’t want a dog again, because he had said so before, but she remembered him asking her a question just the other day… “You know it’s so interesting that this comes up now. Daddy asked me the other day – Mom wants another dog, huh? And I told him – yeah. Isn’t that interesting that this comes up just a few days after?” Annika said. Mom’s eyes widened. “Yeah.. When did he ask you that?” She inquired. “On Saturday when we went shopping for your birthday.” Annika replied. They sat in silence for a moment and Annika said, “It would be so amazing to have a puppy again. To love and cuddle and for it to love us…”
Mom agreed and started to cry. Annika knew exactly what she was thinking about.
Annika placed her arm around her mom’s shoulder and began crying, too. She missed pup, too.
“Do you want the puppy?” Annika asked her mom. “You, know, I had planned on never getting another dog. I didn’t want one, and I didn’t think it would ever happen, but this has totally opened up my heart. Yeah, I want it. And I had planned on finally cleaning up all of pup’s stuff after a year passed and selling her crate, too.” Mom replied through her tears. “Wow! That’s so interesting! It’s like, daddy asked me that question, then you had been planning to get rid of pup’s stuff, and then this lady offers to give us a puppy! Something we couldn’t even afford to buy! It’s almost like, this is meant to be.” Annika smiled, then asked, “Are you gonna talk to Daddy about it?”
“Yeah, I’ll bring it up when he calls me at lunch.” Mom answered.
As Annika was waiting for her lunch, she was telling her friend all about the puppy and all that happened. Her mom was on the phone with her dad, and she was so anxious to hear his answer!
Then she noticed her mom coming out of the hall with a smile on her face. “What happened?” Annika asked hopefully.
Mom sat down beside her daughter and said, “He told me that the reason he asked you if I wanted a dog is because he wanted to bring me a little puppy on my birthday. But he got to thinking about it all realistically and decided that it wouldn’t work out.” Annika thought it was so sweet of her dad to want to do that for her mom, but she got disappointed. “So it’s a no?” She inquired. “He’s thinking about it. He told me not to say no yet.” Mom replied with a smile.
Annika placed her hand over her mouth as happy tears entered her eyes. “Oh, my gosh!! I’m so excited!! He’s actually thinking about it!!” Annika exclaimed as tears ran down her cheeks. Annika and her mom both cried and squealed and talked more about the puppy. When mom went in the kitchen to reply to the lady, Annika grabbed her iPod and texted her friend.
***NOTE- Please click on the pictures to see the messages more clearly
They texted so much that day about puppies! Annika’s mom also said that she was thinking about breeding! When Annika went to bed that night, she prayed hard about the puppy. She prayed that if it was God’s will that they have another puppy, then that the answer would come quickly and that they would have the love and patience and strength to do this.
That ends part one! The next part will be up very soon!
Heeeelloooo everyone! Wow, I guess I’m a little excited right now LOL! Okay, well, I am super excited (see? XD) to show you what I got at the AG store, and I know you all must be, too, so let’s get on with it, shall we? 😀
Grace’s Opening Night Outfit- I have been wanting this so badly, and when I realized I had enough money, I was like, “Okay, I’m buying this!” It is such a pretty outfit and I have no regrets of choosing this outfit! The headband stays in place and the little bow is adorable! It just adds so much to the outfit!
The dress is absolutely gorgeous and good quality! I love the different layers in the skirt and all the pretty sequins! The black “sash” is velvet and just so cute! Pink and black are a favorite color combo of mine
The sandals are amazing! These are literally some of my favorite sandals I own! I rate this outfit 5 out of 5 stars. If you have been trying to decide whether or not to buy it, don’t hesitate! It’s amazing!
I was really happy to find out that AG’s sale was also in store! I have loved The Rainy Day Coat ever since it came out, but I just never wanted to spend the money on it. $16 is much more reasonable
This coat is so stinkin’ adorable! I love the pink with white polka-dots and all the adorable buttons! I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this coat, so I rate it 5 out of 5 stars!
Here’s a bonus pic of Kiara since she looked so adorable
“Who could it be? This
animal dolly who I did see? Can you help me guess this mysteryyyy?” If you know what that song is from, that is awesome! LOL! 😀
I got MAG #39!!! She is SO adorable and I’m so happy to have her!! 😀 She’s going to take over and explain some things to you now
Hi! My name is- oh! I forgot! I can’t tell you that! What’s that? Why can’t I tell you what my name is? Well, I’m going to explain all that to you, but first I have to do a review!
As I’m sure you have noticed, Jaclynn bought me the Starry Hoodie Outfit! It is so comfy and I just love it!
The headband is super easy to get on and I just love the braided look! I’m just not sure about the yellow with this outfit…
The sweatshirt is very soft, therefore making it suuuuper comfy!!
Normally I am not a fan of print leggins, jeggins, pants, whatever. I just don’t think they’re very cute, but surprisingly, I like these! The stars look so relaxing and with how soft the jeggings are, it makes me want to sleep! OH! It makes me want to watch STAR WARS!!!! *said in a deep dramatic narrator’s voice* “In a galaxy far, far away…” Oops! Sorry, I just get so excited when I start talking about something I love!!
And last, the shoes are super cute! Gotta love the sparkles! Only, they’re a little harder to get on than AG’s other flats…
To make it easier to pull the hood over your head, there is a little slit in the hood, which, when on, looks a little weird. I get why it’s there, but it just looks weird, ya know?
But it looks adorable from the front, so that makes up for it! I rate this outfit 4 out of 5 stars, because of the yellow in the headband, the difficulty to get on the shoes, and the slit in the hood
Now, then here’s the answer to why I can’t tell you my name yet- I’m incomplete.
I can tell you that I’m 14, I love chinchillas, and the rest I can’t just straight up tell you.
Why am I incomplete? I can’t tell you that either. Right now I am just a doll. I’m not a member of Jaclynn’s “family” yet and I won’t be until I’m complete. When will I be complete? Time will tell, but I certainly hope I will be this year. But don’t worry! I will still appear in posts and I have already been assigned a star role in several pirate stories, which I’m really excited about! “It is a drawring of a key.” I need to watch Pirates of The Caribbean… AH! I LOVE THOSE MOVIES!!!
Even though I can not tell you my first name, I can tell you my middle name, so that you have something to call me until I am officially introduced. You can call me Jane. “No, no, no, no. I’m Jane.” AGH! There are too many amazing movies!!! Well, I have said everything there is to say and I am starving, so I shall bid you all farewell! *bites lip and blinks back tears whilst thinking to herself “Hobbit!”* Until next time! Bye!
Isn’t she so sweet and fun?! I just love her!! She has one of my favorite personalities of my dolls!! 😀
Have a nice night everyone!
Hey everyone! Yesterday was SO much fun! I went to the AG store with Emma for her birthday, then we had lunch, and then we hung out at my house until 9PM! It was seriously so much fun!! 😀
I don’t have a ton of pictures, but here’s a few
Here we are! She is sooo much taller than me LOL!
Emma is checking out her doll to make sure it’s perfect, and I’m trying to find the one I want
Finally my mom spotted her! Literally, she was the only one I saw in the store! Thank goodness she looked perfect
I ended up taking one thing out, but it’s totally fine! There’s still plenty of time to get it in the future and I wanted the other things more
Now we’ve made our purchases and we were totally ready to eat! About that time we started getting a little crazy. We were super crazy yesterday LOL! 😀
I hope you enjoyed the pictures! Emma will be posting on her blog soon what she got, and I’ll do a haul later today, as long as it isn’t raining
Have a nice day!
I’ve always wanted to make one of these and since I just watched BOTFA for the second time AND discovered that some lyrics from The Last Goodbye are actually IN the Hobbit book, I decided it was high time I do it! 😀
Credit to Billy Boyd for the amazing song, and to Adaline for making up lyrics photoshoots
“I saw the light fade from the sky.
On the wind I heard a sigh…
As the snowflakes cover my fallen brothers, I will say this last goodbye….
Night is now falling, so ends this day.
The road is now calling and I must away
Over hill, and under tree
Through lands where never light has shone
By silver streams that run down to the sea
To these memories I will hold
With your blessing, I will go
To turn at last to paths that lead home.
And, oh, where the road then takes me, I cannot tell
We came all this way, but now comes the day, to bid you farewell….
I bid you all a very fond farewell…….”
I only used some of the song because it’s a long song and I didn’t have much time to take the pictures, but I hope you enjoyed it! Let me know if you’d be interested in seeing more lyrics photoshoots! 😀
Have a great rest of your day!
Hey everyone! Yesterday I cleaned out under my bed (my doll’s bedroom) because I’ve been having a ton of baby spiders in my room lately (*shudders*) and the other day I noticed a few under there, so I freaked out… Anyways! Back to the subject of this post – I set up my dolls to where they’re all doing something and I thought it’d be fun to show you what they’re up to
So here’s the overview! Some of them are hiding behind the curtains, though LOL!
Over here, Dallas is getting Pepper out of his bed so he, Eli, and Jeremy can play with him. Rapunzel is asking if she can play with him, too and Lissie is trying to get a book, but Dallas is in the way. You can kinda see Clara back there just hanging out
Bella, Ellie, and Snow are being as sweet as can be playing with Licorice
Belinda is helping Cecile with some school.
And Merida wants Belinda for something…. Probably to help her climb something 😛
And of course Caleb and Kendra are fighting and screaming at the top of their lungs. Kristoff is trying to pull Caleb off of Kendra and Annika starts to intervene. Mickey and Minnie are sad and scared by their fighting as usual, too 😉
Kanani, Riven-Delle, and Annika had all been talking, but then stopped instantly when they noticed Caleb and Kendra fighting. Anna was gonna talk to Riven-Delle, but also stopped when she noticed the fight.
Janie looking over at Caleb and Kendra. They attract a lot of attention to themselves whenever they fight 😛
Julie, Kaya, and Samantha are talking
And oh, dear! Marie-Grace was talking to Saige (who is painting) when she was supposed to be practicing her singing, so Lana told her to stop talking to Saige, Marie-Grace got mad, and now Jess came over and is trying to tell Lana that it’s okay for Marie-Grace to talk to Saige. My goodness!
Josefina and Kirsten were about to bake and are now trying to persuade Rebecca into helping them, too. Addy was talking to Kirsten
Jenna doing some things at the vanity
And Kiara and Caroline are chatting
Do your dolls have a usual thing that happens every day? Like how Caleb and Kendra always fight? What do your dolls like to do?
YAY! Sadie’s Hope has started!! I was going to post the first part, but then we decided that Emma should post it, so be sure to go read the first part on her blog BEFORE reading this part
Sadie hesitantly followed her. Amy led her outside and down a few blocks until they reached a little shack, from which Sadie could hear lots of loud voices.
Opening the door, Amy gestured to the suddenly silent group of kids.
“Hey, Amy, who’s this?” A dark haired girl inquired.
“This is Sadie-” Amy paused to remember her last name, but soon remembered they hadn’t been properly introduced, “What’s your last name?” Amy questioned. “Darrell.”
Amy nodded her head in acknowledgement and said, “Sadie, these are some friends of mine. We’re a small group of kids who try to help other orphan children who have no home.”
Amy continued and listed their names, “This is Viveca,” Amy gestured to the black haired girl,
“and this is Gretta,” She pointed to the African American,
“and this is Mark.” Amy said and the boy nodded. “What’s she doing here, Amy?” Mark asked, sounding a little annoyed.
“She’s a new–” Amy paused and searched for the right word, “Friend. We are going to help her.”
“We? Nah, I don’t think so.” Mark refused.
“Mark!” Amy shouted.
“Honestly, Mark, why even be in the group if you don’t wanna help out another orphan kid?” Viveca questioned with annoyance. Mark rolled his eyes. Sadie knew there was going to be a lot of tension between Mark and her, if he was going to help.
“What do you even want our help with?” Mark asked, eyes suspicious.
“I need to get my little brother out of the orphanage.” Sadie said.
“Oh, you’re lucky he’s even alive. You know those orphanages are teeming with deadly diseases.” Mark smirked. Sadie felt her face grow hot, and she pursed her lips together to keep from saying anything rude back at him.
“Mark! Really, could you just quit it!” Gretta shouted.
Mark could tell that Sadie was upset, so he asked, “Your brother must feel pretty bad to have a sister like you – you abandoned him, didn’t you?”
Sadie looked at him with wide eyes, trying to hold back her guilt.
Mark snickered and said, “I knew it.”
Sadie looked down, her cheeks hot. “Mark Campbell, if you say one more unkind word to Sadie, I will take away your food for the week!” Amy shouted, her face burning with anger. Mark frowned, but said no more.
Amy glanced over at Sadie, who’s eyes looked all teary. “Hey, don’t let him bother you. He’s always saying something mean to somebody.” Amy comforted silently.
Sadie looked away, embarrassed that she was letting him get to her. “Yeah, um, when can we go and get him out?” Sadie asked.
“Well, we will have to make a plan first. Anyone got any ideas?” Amy inquired.
“Maybe we,” Gretta pointed to her and Mark, “can distract the lady at the front desk while you two sneak in,” She pointed at Sadie and Amy, “and grab your brother?”
“And what about me?” Viveca asked, feeling a little left out.
“Oh, um, you can come with us to distract the lady, you’re good at coming up with lies!” Gretta added.
Viveca smiled, “Alright, that sounds good to me!”
“Okay! Everything sounds great! We can go as soon as you want, Sadie.” Amy said.
“Well, then, let’s leave now!” Sadie said, quite determined to get her brother back.
“Oh, for a second there I thought you were going to leave him in the orphanage for a couple other days.” Mark grinned devilishly.
Sadie flashed Mark a dirty look and was just about to say something back, when Viveca intervened-
“WELL! We should really get on our way, shall we?” Viveca asked Amy.
“Yes, let’s get going!” Amy agreed.
Mark laughed and followed the girls out the door.
And that concludes this part!! Emma and I hope you liked it! 😀
The next part will be posted on Emma’s blog
