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.
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.”
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?
Morning Glow~ A Photoshoot
Hi everyone! Now that I got three Rey orders shipped out, I have time to make a post for you all 🙂
I took these pictures of Maryellen a few weeks ago on a chilly morning and some of them just seem to have that morning glow, so that explains the title 🙂
Oh gosh. Her hair is so beautiful, isn’t it? O.o
That’s all for today! I’m off to- hm. I don’t know yet actually. I’m really tired, so maybe I’ll read or maybe once I wake up a bit I’ll start cleaning my room. But I also feel like writing… Oh well, I’ll figure it out! 🙂
Do you have any plans for the weekend?
Review of Lea’s Bahia Outfit & Photoshoot!
Hi everyone! The rain stopped so I was able to go outside and take some pictures today – YAY! 😀
I had a request to do a review of Lea’s Bahia Outfit, so here it is!
When I first saw the leaked photos of this outfit, I thought it was weird and just blah. But when I saw a picture of Lea wearing it, well, I pretty much died and I knew I had to take it home with me on the 1st. The colors of the shirt look absolutely amazing up against her skin and hair color! This is probably my favorite outfit from her collection 🙂
And also, when I saw the picture of Lea wearing this outfit, I knew I had to get her ears pierced so I could put those dangles on her when she wore this outfit! They look amazing with this outfit and I kind of feel like it’s a must for her to wear these with this outfit XD
The pattern of the shirt is so interesting and I love how it starts off yellow at the neck and then turns to pink! 😀
The sandals are really adorable and easy to get on. They Velcro in the back and you slip the foot through the loop. Piece of cake! 🙂
The shorts are the only thing I don’t like about this outfit. I’ve never really cared for the look of wearing a long sleeve with shorts and plus, these shorts are REALLY short. I wish AG would have made them a bit longer :/
So, I rate this outfit a 9 out of 10. I’m taking away one point because of the shorts. If they were longer, I probably would have given this outfit a 10 😉
And now, let us move on to the photoshoot!
I’m trying to decide if I want Leia to be a sister to the rest of my dolls or maybe start making my newer dolls be friends instead… What do you think?
This is probably one of my favorite photos 🙂
I also really like this picture! I think it looks so cool with her strands of hair flying in the wind 😉 😀
Well, that’s all for today! I hope you enjoyed this photoshoot and review 🙂
What’s your favorite outfit from Lea’s collection?
A Comparison of Lea and Rebecca
Hi everyone! I’m so excited because it’s raining right now and it’s cold! I was just lying on the couch with a blanket and reading Lea Dives In – so far, it’s really good! It makes me kind of sad, though because of Lea and Zac’s relationship… Okay, let’s get back on track!
Today I thought I’d do a comparison of Lea and Rebecca. I didn’t realize how many similarities they had until I took them outside for some pictures. They would make some really great twins or even just sisters 😉
Aren’t they just adorable? So the first thing that’s the same about them, is that they both have the Josefina face mold. In my opinion, Lea’s face looks slightly chubbier and her lips also look bigger, but we’ll get into that later 😉
Here is Rebecca’s eye. She has a beautiful bright green hazel color with grey-ish brown and black stripes. Her eyebrows are basic.
This is Lea’s eye. They are a darker green than Rebecca’s and have lots more brown in them and she also has the black stripes. Lea also has a thick ring of black around her eye. Her eyebrows are thicker, similar to Grace’s and arched, which is new.
Here are Lea’s lips. They are painted mauve.
And these are Rebecca’s lips. They’re like a light peach almost. I think due to the darkness of Lea’s lips, it makes them look bigger than Rebecca’s because they stand out.
Here you can also see the difference in the skin color. Lea’s skin is tan and Rebecca’s is white.
Side view. Here, Lea’s skin looks similar to Kanani’s. I’ll have to compare their skin soon 😉
And finally, their hair! I had no idea that their hair color was so alike, and now I can definitely tell that Lea’s hair is brown. Lea’s hair goes down to her hips and is curly/wavy with light blonde and auburn highlights. Rebecca’s hair goes a little past her shoulders and is curly.
Even though they share the same color brown in their hair, I still have to say that Lea’s is slightly lighter than Rebecca’s which I believe is because of her light highlights.
So here’s a list telling how they are alike:
1. They both have brown hair, with Lea’s slightly lighter.
2. They both share the Josefina face mold.
3. They both have green hazel eyes, with Rebecca’s being much brighter.
As I stated earlier, I really think that Lea and Rebecca would make great sisters. Even though not everything is the same, they share many similarities 🙂
What are your thoughts on Lea and Rebecca? Do you think they look alike?
Leia~ A Photoshoot
Happy New Year, everyone!!
As some of you may know, I went to Lea Clark’s debut today with Emma and we both had so much fun! Weeelll… As I’m sure you can tell by the title – I GOT LEA!!! But, I’m spelling it “Leia” because, well, okay, because it’s Star Wars-y 😀
I only have a little bit of time right now, so I can’t do a photostory or review with her just yet, but be on the watch for it! 🙂 Now, here is Leia!
*drools just a little bit* She is such a GORGEOUS doll!!! I can’t handle this!! She’s AMAZING!!! *dies*
I tried getting a clear picture of her eye color for you. I think in person it is slightly more green than in the picture 😉 Also, here you can see the shape of her eyebrows. I’m pretty sure that they’re new as they appear to be more arched.
*sniffs* Leia is next to me right now and seriously, all I smell is her :O She smells so new!!
Here is a full body shot! Isn’t she adorable?! If you’re wondering about the messenger bag and compass necklace, yes, they are included with the doll and book for $120 🙂 But, ahem, they are in a terrible spot. We were like- I thought she came with the bag and necklace! I’m so disappointed! And so my mom looked it up on the site (we were already in the car) and it said that it’s supposed to be included. So just as Emma’s mom was about to call AG to ask about it, my mom is like “Are you sure it’s not anywhere? Is it behind the book?” And Emma and I were like- “No, it is not behind the book.” So then Emma picked up the part the book is in and saw in back of that package, that the bag and necklace were right there… Hehe…. XD
The necklace is seriously adorable!! And the arrow actually moves!! AAH!!
And the bag- OMGEE! I believe this and the compass will be used a LOT! 😀
Isn’t this such amazing hair?! :O
She has beautiful highlights! Light blonde and red! AGH! I think her hair color is like a caramel-y brown… It’s hard for me to tell 😉
I love her eyes next to this plant!
Isn’t she beautiful?! I’m so glad that I was able to purchase her as well as have her ears pierced! You’ll have to see the other thing I got soon 😉
What are your thoughts on Lea Clark?
It’s pretty much the same as the previous one, except the lighting is different 🙂
