Stranger at the Park~ A Photostory


It was a warm, sunny day, so I decided to bring the kids to the park. Jess and Lana sat on a bench chatting. Or rather, Lana chatted and Jess didn’t pay much attention.

“…and then half an hour later, I saw Samantha dusting AGAIN! I’m telling you, she cleans way too much.” Lana observed, though Jess didn’t seem to notice her talking.


“Humph! I’ve been sitting here doing all the talking while you just sit there staring at nothing! I’d rather be talking to Josefina – even if she always blows her top with me,  at least she would respond!” Lana grumbled, and still Jess didn’t say a word.


With a heavy, over exaggerated sigh, Lana leaped to her feet and walked away in a huff.


“Um, hi! You’re one of the girls from that huge family that lives on Daisy Street, right?” A strange girl inquired as she walked up to the bench Jess sat miserably on.

“Oh, yeah. You live across the street from us, huh?” Jess asked.

“Yeah, I’m still kinda new. We moved there in January. Uh, so, do you mind if I sit with you?” The girl wondered.

“Sure, it’s fine.” Jess replied.


“I’m Leia, by the way. What’s your name?” Leia introduced.

“I’m Jess. How old are you?” She asked.


“I’m 16. You?”

“Oh, I’m 14.” Jess answered, turning her head away.


They sat in an awkward silence for a while, but Leia was determined to get to know her better. “Are you okay?” She inquired.


Jess sighed and closed her eyes. “No, I’m not.”


“Well, if you don’t mind me asking, what’s wrong?” Leia pressed.


“Today marks 6 years since my brother and sister died.” Jess struggled through the words, but she somehow managed to get them out without bawling.


“Oh. I’m so sorry.” Leia said, looking down at her compass.


“H-how did they die?” She inquired.


“In a terrible accident. A cave in.” Jess informed as she stared into space, her eyes wet with tears.


“That’s awful…. Couldn’t someone have tried to get them out?” Leia asked.

“They did, but it was too late.” Jess answered.


“Have you ever lost someone?” Jess inquired.


Leia turned her head and stared into open space. “No.” She answered simply.


“Well, I’d better be going. It was nice to meet you, Jess.” Leia said as she rose to her feet.

“It was nice to meet you, too, Leia. Maybe you could come over sometime?” Jess offered.


“Yeah, maybe. Well, bye!” Leia said with a smile.


Leia walked away and  holding onto her compass, she said, “I’m not gonna lose you. I will find you.”

~~~~~

Hiii! I felt like making a photostory today and YAY! Now Leia is introduced! XD I know, it took me forever to introduce her, but I had other plans for her, but then things changed so I was able to make her introductory photostory at last! ;D

I hope you liked it! Have a great day!

Discouraging Words~ A Photostory

Hi everyone! I got to thinking how it’s been a super long time since I’ve made a photostory, so today I set aside some time to make a short photostory for you all. I hope you like it! :)

  
“Aren’t these guitars great, Dallas?” Eli asked with an excited smile.

  
“Yeah! That was awesome of mom to buy them for us!” Dallas agreed.

  
“Oh so this is where all that music is coming from.” Lana observed as she walked in the room.

  
“Yeah, mom bought Dallas and me some guitars! Aren’t they cool?” Eli asked.

  
“Oh, sure. They look cool, but how do they sound? Go on, play something, Eli.” Lana urged her brother.

“Well, okay.” Eli agreed and strummed a few notes on his electric guitar.

  
“Hm. That wasn’t so bad.” Lana said, not sounding very impressed.

  
“Your turn, Dallas. Play something.” Lana ordered her brother. 

“Yeah, come on, Dal!” Eli urged him.

  
“Well, I don’t know…” Dallas said, not feeling very confident.

  
“Ha! I bet you don’t even know how to play!” Lana sneered.

  
“I do, too!” Dallas defended himself and placed his fingers on the strings and began to play.

  
When Eli heard him, he felt sorry he had encouraged him to play. He just knew Lana was going to pick on him, but when he looked at her, she seemed to be smiling. He wondered if perhaps she was enjoying it. 

  
Dallas strummed the last chord and looked at Lana who had her nose up in the air.

  
“That was the worst thing I have ever heard in my entire life. I can’t believe mommy wasted her money on a guitar for you! You can’t even play! She should have spent that money on something that could actually be played well by somebody. Like a piano for me!” Lana said full of disgust.

  
“It’s not a waste! I just can’t play very well yet!” Dallas shouted angrily.

  
Lana leaned over and said, “Dallas, you will never play the guitar well because you don’t have the skill it takes to play it.”  

 
When Lana had left the room, Eli tried to cheer up his brother. “Aw, don’t worry, Dal! Lana always says things like that to everybody. You’ll learn!” Eli encouraged him.

  
“No, Eli. I think she’s right.” Dallas mumbled as he set his guitar down. Eli frowned and decided it would be best to leave Dallas alone for a while. 

  
After about ten minutes, Jocelyn walked in the room. “Hey, Dallas! What are you doing?” She inquired.

  
“Nothing.” He replied.

  
Jocelyn sat on the floor and gave Pepper some love. Then she said, “So I heard mommy got you and Eli some guitars. Why aren’t you playing it?”

  
“Because I can’t. And, well, Lana heard me play and she said I’ll never be able to play well.” Dallas explained.

  
“Ooh, I see. Well, have you ever played the guitar before today?” Jocelyn inquired.

  
“No, this was my first time.” Dallas answered.

  
“Well, look, you can’t expect to be the best guitar player ever after just 5 minutes of playing. And that goes for anything. If you’ve never done it before, how could you know how to do it perfectly? Just give it some time. Keep practicing and some day you’ll be so good that Lana will wish she had never said what she did.” Jocelyn said.

  
“I guess you’re right… Thanks, Jocelyn.” Dallas said gratefully.

  
Jocelyn smiled and said, “No problem.”

THE END

Arent the guitars so cute? I got them at The Dollar Tree a few weeks ago! I think they’re perfect for dolls, but I just wish they could hold them more realistically. Oh well, it still works great! :)

Do any of your dolls play the guitar?

What My Dolls Are Up To

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 :)

image

So here’s the overview! Some of them are hiding behind the curtains, though LOL!

image

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 :)

image

Bella, Ellie, and Snow are being as sweet as can be playing with Licorice :)

image

Belinda is helping Cecile with some school.

image

And Merida wants Belinda for something…. Probably to help her climb something 😛

image

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 😉

image

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.

image

Janie looking over at Caleb and Kendra. They attract a lot of attention to themselves whenever they fight 😛

image

Julie, Kaya, and Samantha are talking :)

image

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!

image

Josefina and Kirsten were about to bake and are now trying to persuade Rebecca into helping them, too. Addy was talking to Kirsten :)

image

Jenna doing some things at the vanity :)

image

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?

The Disappearing Heirs Season 2~ The Crown Reclaimed: Part 10~ The GRAND FINALE

image
“Ugh! There’s nothing here!” Corinne said in frustration. We’d been looking for hours, and so far there was no mention of me in any of the books.

image

“Just keep looking! There has to be something here.” I said, not wanting to give up.

image

“Hey! I found something!” Monica exclaimed from a nearby desk.

image

“What is it?” I asked as Corinne and I rushed over.

image

“It’s the royal family line! I found Josh and his wife, Angela and under them it says, baby girl, but no name.” Monica pointed out. “Well, now I have my answer, so let’s get back to the palace!” I said, and we left.

image
“Stewardess! I have the answer to your question.” I said, bursting into the throne room.

image

“Please, leave. Before you waste both of our times.”

image

“My mother, Princess Angela, gave me no name when I was born! My name is Allie, and I will say it once again, I’m the rightful heir to the throne! Back away, now!” I said forcefully.

image

She stared at me for a moment, a look of disgust on her face. Then she stood.

image

“Your throne, Your Highness.” She said in a fake kind voice.

image

Slowly, I walked over and took my seat on the throne, Monica and Corinne smiling on.

image
At last, I was home…

image

The days turned into months, and I found myself thinking a lot about my father. I wondered what happened to him, and if he was safe. I realized how much I longed to see him again, so I called Uriah into the room.

image
“Yes, Your Highness?” She asked when she stepped in the room.

image

“I need you to get a message to Agent Corinne for me, please.” I said. If I was going to find my father, I needed Corinne to assist me. I was going to do whatever it takes to see my father again….

*In our world*

image

“Agent, this letter just came for you.” A man said.

image

Corinne read the note and a smile spread across her face. “Get me my hat! I’ve got a new case that requires immediate attention.” She called out and ran out the door to fulfill Allie’s requests.

image

*pant, pant, pant*
“GET THAT MAN!” “Where’d he go?” “Let’s check over this way!” 

image

DUN DUN!

THE END!

STAY TUNED! Check back in one hour for an interview with the stars of TDH Season 2: The Crown Reclaimed!

The Disappearing Heirs Season 2~ The Crown Reclaimed: Part 9

image
To my surprise, many of the people believed I was the lost princess, and the next morning, several of them turned out in front of the palace yelling “We want Allie!” “Give us our rightful queen!” “Allie! Allie!”

image

“Stewardess, you see who the people want! Don’t you want to give them who they are asking for?” I shouted, so she could hear me over the people’s loud voices.

image

The stewardess looked on at the people, her eyes wide. She clearly didn’t know how to respond to this.

image
“I am who they want! And that is because I’m the rightful heir to the throne!” I said, pointing my hand to the crowd.

image

“I don’t care who they want! You have no proof that you are the lost princess!” The stewardess shouted back.

image

“Actually, I do. You do know about the royal birthmark, don’t you?” I asked.

image

“Yes, of course! What of it?” She asked, sticking her nose into the air.

image

I climbed up the wall and pulled my hair out of the way. “Look at my neck.” I told her, and when she did, her eyes grew wide again.

image

“This is ridiculous! It doesn’t mean anything! You could have just put a mark on your neck!” She yelled.

image

“You’ll have to do something far greater in order for me to believe you are the princess. Tell me what your name was when you born!” She demanded.

image

I froze. I hadn’t even known I was given a name when I was born! The only name I’d ever known was, Allie.

image

“Ah ha! I knew you weren’t the princess!” She yelled and walked away.

image

I slowly turned my head to the crowd. “Why wouldn’t Josh have told me my real name?” I wondered.

image

Corinne and Monica looked at me, their faces bewildered.

image

I came down and asked, “Corinne, do you remember my dad saying anything about my real name?”

image

“No, I don’t think he mentioned it.” She replied.

image

“I thought so.” I sighed.


image

“Well, maybe he doesn’t even know! Maybe your mother died before she had a chance to tell him!” Monica suggested.

image

“Yeah, that would make sense. My mom died shortly after I was born and my dad wasn’t home.” I said. Then I looked around for Adella. “I’m gonna see if Adella knows anything about my real name.” I said.

image

“Adella, do you know what name I was given when I was born?” I inquired.

image

“No, I’m afraid not. But perhaps you could check the library! There are many books in there about the kingdom’s history that I bet even the stewardess doesn’t know about.” Adella suggested with a smile.

image
“Oh, that’s perfect! Thank you so much!” I said and Corinne, Monica, and I headed for the library.

That concludes this part! Look for the GRAND FINALE coming next!! 😀

The Disappearing Heirs Season 2~ The Crown Reclaimed: Part 7

If you are a little lost on what is going on right now, you can get caught up by hovering over the “Photostory Series” page in the upper menu and clicking “The Disappearing Heirs Season 2 The Crown Reclaimed” :)

image
Getting into the palace was actually not as hard as everyone said it would be. The guards let us go right in once I told them what I was doing there. I felt frozen when I saw the stewardess sitting on the throne. I didn’t know what to say.

image

“Who are you?” The stewardess asked with annoyance.

image

“I am Allie Gramer and I am here to make a claim to the throne.” I said, swallowing my fear.

image

“Oh, so you claim to be the lost princess, do you?” The stewardess inquired.

image

The stewardess stood and came up to my face. “Well, I have news for you. The chances of my believing you are the lost princess are about a million to one! I have seen several girls claiming to be her royal highness and some of them looked more like her than you do!” She growled and I felt my face burning with anger.

image

With a wave of her hand she said, “Please leave me now!”

image

“Are you going to leave or shall I have the guards throw you into the street?” She said, raising her voice.

image

“You can’t just decide she isn’t the princess without hearing more from her!” Corinne yelled angrily.

image
“How dare you speak to me that way? I can do as I like!” The stewardess shouted. “She is Joshua’s daughter! We are both witnesses of their meeting!” Monica said in our defense.

image
The stewardess’ eyes widened at the mention of Joshua.

image

“They met back in Manhattan, from our world.” Monica stated.

image

“I don’t CARE!” The stewardess yelled furiously.

image

“Guards! Take them away!” She called and there was nowhere for us to go.

image

“What are we going to do?” Corinne asked as the sound of the guards footsteps grew louder. “We have no choice. We’ll have to figure something out in the dungeon.” I replied.

image

 

And with that, the guards dragged us down to the dungeon. I had failed, but I was going to get out of this, and I was going to take back my kingdom.

That ends part 7! Look for part 8 coming in one hour! 😀

Planning For Hillside

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!

image

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 😛

image

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!
