Happy Valentine’s Day! (2017)
New Star Wars Costumes in Bitty Beanies!
EEKS! I’ve been SO excited to share my new Star Wars costumes with all of you and today is the day I get to show you! 😀 For those of you who may not know, I have an Etsy shop where I sell crocheted doll outfits/costumes 🙂
Okay, let’s take a looksie:
I had so much fun making this outfit! I just love the poofy-ness 🙂
MY LITTLE BB-8!!! LOLOL! Sorry, you all know I have an insane obsession with him XD
I was really happy with how the sweetheart neckline came out. Usually it’s kind of difficult for me to do, but in this case- it was easy! 🙂
“Haaaan SOLO!” Sorry, I just had to quote Maz (I say that quote all the time) XD
So this is the Han Solo dress I talked about! I am SOO happy with how this turned out! I think it may be one of my absolute favorite items I’ve made! 😀
And here is the Jedi Robe!! Oh, and AGDA– thanks for telling me about the Lightsaber! I LOVE it! 😀
Honestly, the Sith Robe is my favorite out of the two. It’s just so mysterious 🙂
Yes, be creepily, awesomely, mysterious, Riven-Delle…. XD
So those are the items! They’re all available to order in my Etsy shop at these prices:
Oh, and just a reminder – I also have a Rey costume in my Etsy shop, as well 😉
I think that’s all I have for today! If you have any questions about my items or anything, just drop me a comment 🙂
Which of my new items is your favorite? What Star Wars costume would you like to see next?
Have a great day!
2 Fillies & A Colt~ A Photostory
You’re all probably doing this right now – *rechecks title* Does that really say photostory?
Yes, yes, it does! I’ve finally made a photostory! YAY!!
Annika will take over now 🙂
Sometimes when I stand by the door to the backyard and I feel the cool breeze sweeping over me and hear the birds chirping, I just feel called to go outside. That’s what happened to me today. It was so beautiful outside I just had to go out and be surrounded by the fresh air.
And then I saw our ponies playing in the lawn.
I smiled gleefully as I watched them. They were so adorable, it killed me.
Sparks Flying was the first to notice me. He stared at me, a gleam in his eye. Then he ran over to me.
“Hey, you good boy!” I greeted as I stroked his fluffy face. Nothing better than the fluffy fur of a pony. Well, maybe there is, but to me, it was one of the most amazing feelings in the world.
It wasn’t long before Luthien and Eowyn noticed me and trotted over to us.
Eowyn lifted her muzzle under my arm to make me pet her and I giggled as she did so. These two girlies were jealous of the attention I was giving Sparks Flying.
“Don’t be jealous, you two! I love you all very much.” I cooed.
I could have stayed out there forever. These ponies definitely held a special place in my heart.
Awww…. I love my horses, but I hardly ever use them! It felt good to give these little ponies some attention 🙂
Have you ever pet a pony?
My GOTY Collections~ Grace Edition
Hiii! I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. There’s been so much going on, this is the first day I’ve stayed home in days! But, I’m here bringing you a new series on my blog! *celebrates*
After each GOTY doll retires, I will be showing you what I got from their collection. I’ll have to do a few this year since I have a few GOTY dolls, but I think it’ll be something fun to do and plus, it’s always fun knowing what people have in their doll collection, right? ;D
This is everything I got last year from Grace’s collection! Yep, it’s all clothes! While I did love her entire collection, I didn’t end up getting any of her accessories, which is totally fine! I loved her Baking Accesories, but maybe I can get them on eBay sometime 🙂
Here is Annika modeling Grace’s Sightseeing Outfit! This is one of my absolute favorite outfits of hers – and probably just in general! I love the colors and the style- so, so cute!
And obviously, I got Grace (although she was renamed to Riven-Delle)! SHE IS THE MOST PHOTOGENIC DOLL ON EARTH!!!!! *dies*
Ahem. Sorry about that. But seriously, isn’t her hair amazing? Like, come on, those highlights! :O (also, I couldn’t find her charm bracelet at the moment, so that’s unfortunately not shown…)
Here’s Caroline in Grace’s Travel Coat! This has to be one of my favorite pieces ever! I use this coat so much, I think at least one of my dolls is always wearing it!
And (haha, I almost revealed her true identity to all of you XD ) here is JANE (yes, Jane… *smirk*) modeling Grace’s Opening Night Outfit! Again, I couldn’t find the headband, so that’s not shown either. UGH! I literally JUST saw it yesterday and now it’s gone! *sobs over the loss of the lovely headband* Anyways, this dress is gorgeous!! And those SHOES!!!
I shadowed Annika with the black side of my reflector – dark and beautiful 🙂
Awesome camera + miraculous reflector = beautiful picture. In case you didn’t know, I got a reflector for my birthday and it is AMAZING!! These pictures would have been so much darker without it!
Now I’m using the gold side of my reflector- see how the lighting changed? 🙂
Well, that’s all for today! I’ll be back soon – hopefully to show you my dollhouse along with an announcement! 😀
What did you get from Grace’s Collection?
Freckled Beauty~ A Photoshoot
Hey everyone! I hope you all aren’t tired of photoshoots cause I’ve got another one for you! 😉
Shelby-Grace requested a photoshoot of Trulyme #55, in other words, my Annika, so since I had been feeling like taking pics of her already, I decided to do a photoshoot of Annika today! 😀
So, I had taken a full body picture, but it didn’t look good, so I’m sorry to say that there is no full body pic… But she is wearing the sandals from Grace’s Opening Night Outfit 🙂
This might be my favorite picture… 😀
Isn’t Annika so pretty? I feel like she may be one of the most popular TM dolls! I just feel like so many people have or want her! It’s quite understandable though. She is so beautiful and her coloring and- AGH! She’s just so pretty! 😀
I hope you enjoyed the photos!
Who’s your favorite Trulyme doll?
The Force Awakens Rey Costume!
Hey guys! So a few days ago I got inspired to crochet (YAY! It’s been forever!) and I decided to make Rey’s costume from the new Star Wars The Force Awakens movie! Speaking of which, who else is super excited for that movie?! *raises both hands wildly and screams BB-8!!!!*
Okay, enough of that now LOL! So I finished making the costume last night and it is now available to purchase in my Etsy shop for $35 🙂
I think this is one of my favorite costumes I’ve ever made! I feel like it just really has that Star Wars feel to it. What do you think? 😀
I think Annika looks so adorable in this outfit and she is quite in love with it as she is kinda a big Star Wars fan, too 😉
Well, I hope you like my costume and that you will head on over to my Etsy shop and give it a “heart” by clicking here 🙂 <3

Okay, I’ll stop talking like a pirate now LOL! So today I have a lyrics photoshoot featuring Victoria and Jake! The song is “One Of Us” from The Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride. 🙂
Evil as plain as the scowl on his face (I added in scowl 😉 )
Deception (an outrage!)
Disgrace (For shame!)
He asked for trouble the moment he came
And he is not one of us
He has never been one of us
He is not part of us. Not our kind.
Someone once lied to us.
Now we’re not so blind
For we knew he would do what he’s done and we know that he’ll never be one of us
*sighs* So sad. Isn’t Jake horrible?! And awesome?! XD Well, you know, horrible then, awesome now LOL! 😀
Oh! So I got some new glasses yesterday!!! I’m really excited!! I’ve been wearing them pretty much since I got them! I don’t have to, but I do because I like them LOL! 😀
And also, I’m sorry about leaving you postless all week. There was just so much going on that I didn’t really have a chance to post. I will get the next part of Masquerade up this upcoming week! 🙂
TTFN! Ta-ta for now! 😉
An Unexpected Gift~ Part 2
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! 🙂
An Unexpected Gift~ Part 1
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”
One morning, Annika and her mom had just finished watching an episode of Star Wars Rebels together on the iPad. “Oh, my gosh!! We still have no answers!!” Annika complained.
“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! 🙂
National Donut Day!
“Hi everyone! Happy National Donut Day! You know as mommy and I are totally in love with donuts, we just have to celebrate Donut Day!”
“Don’t they look so good? That long one…. And-and the pink…. OOOH! AND THE CHOCOLATE!! Sorry, I’ve had a lot of treats today….”
Hi, it’s Jaclynn now! Oh, my gosh, it’s National Donut Day and Krispy Kreme is giving away free donuts and I’m not eating one?? This is just sad. LOL!
Do you love donuts? What’s your favorite kind or place to buy donuts?
