Cara's Birthday!

Hi everyone!
On the 14th of March, Cara celebrated her 10th birthday! Here's a photo-story. Enjoy!


Happy Birthday, Cara!

I wonder what it is?

Thanks Melly!

You're welcome, Cara! Come on, open it up!

Yay! New clothes! I'll go and try them on…

A few minutes later...

They fit perfectly! Thanks a heap, Melsy!
You're welcome Cara, I'm glad you liked them.

Doesn't Cara just look so much like Josefina in this one?

Mum and I made the outfit with the pattern for Josefina's camisa and skirt from AG playthings.

I didn't have the right materials, so did a variation instead.

The camisa is made from pale blue batiste trimmed with rainbow lace and bound with bright orange lawn bias binding.
The skirt is made of blue printed wintella. The design has white birds on branches with leaves etc. on a blue background. The skirt is gathered on to a waistband/sash, which ties at the back, then hemmed.

If you want a more detailed post on this outfit, please let me know.


Melody's Autumn photo shoot/story

Hi there!
A while ago now, I did an Autumn photo shoot with Melody, which kind of turned in to a bit of a story. Anyway, here are the pictures. Enjoy!

Of course I had to have at least one of her like this :)

Sweet face ;)

Hope you liked it! Please comment below and tell me which photo was your favourite. I will use it as the photo for the "About Me" page on her blog.

Post about her new outfit coming soon!

Liebster Award

Hi everyone!
As some of you may already know, Hannah from AGDT, Dollygirl from Dollygirl's Treasures, Dally from Saige's Locket nominated me for the Liebster award! Thank you everyone!

First up, Hannah's Questions!

1. Which AG doll do you want next?
This is a really hard one! As you know, I'm saving up for an AG doll right now, but currently have almost no idea which one to get! There are a number of MYAG's that I like, a few historicals, and a few that haven't been released yet and might be coming out soon. I think I'll decide once I have enough money for one.

2. Pleasant Company or AG?
Probably Pleasant Company, because even if some of the dolls weren't as pretty back then, at least Pleasant actually cared about the girls, unlike AG.

3. Saige or Isabelle?
I LOVE Saige's colouring, but she's almost an exact copy of Nicki. So I think that I like Isabelle a bit better, because she's still a bit of a "copy-cat", but at least she's not almost exactly like another doll. Plus, she's a dress designer and dancer, just like me!

4. Summer or Winter?
I think they'd be almost equal!
I like summer, because you don't have to rug up to go outside, and I get to wear all my (way nicer) summer clothes. But I do love playing in the snow!
I probably like Summer a bit better, I think though.

5. Fall or Spring?
Spring, because I love all the blossom on the trees, and seeing everything "come back to life" again. And because my birthday is in Spring.

6. Bittys or 18 inch?
18 inch. Definitely!

7. Youtube or Blogs?
Probably blogs, because blogging means you can get to know the person better, but I do like watching AGSM's on Youtube.

8. Favourite Hobby?
Sewing and reading. Am I allowed to pick two??

9. What is your favourite game?
I actually prefer the "imagining" games better than board games, so I'd have to say playing a game with my dolls.

10. iPad or iPhone?
iPad, because it's got a bigger screen, and I don't really need a mobile phone!

11. Favourite colour?
Another hard one! I like Apricot pink, Sea green, Berry pink, Sky blue, Emerald green, Purple, and lots more!

Next are Dollygirl's questions!

1. Favorite color?
Same as the last one!
2. Favorite animal?
I like Rabbits, Pandas, Horses, Cats, TurtlesThe list goes on and on!
3. If you could get three wishes, what would you ask for?
To see all my internet friends together, have all my problems solved and to get a book published. It changes every day, though!
4. If you could create a doll, any doll, what would she look like?
She'd look just like me! With green eyes, glasses, dark blonde wavy short hair, and olive toned skin.
5. Favorite way to wear your hair?
Probably down, but it changes a lot! Some times I might have a favourite hairstyle that I wear everyday for a week or so, and sometimes I'll experiment with lots of different ones! Unfortunately I can't do much with my hair right now, 'cause it's pretty short, but I'm going to grow it out!
6. Do you like Oreos?
Yes! Especially the strawberry variety.
8. Favorite clothing piece you own?
Can't choose!
7. Did you notice I switched #7 and #8?
Not until I read this question, haha!
9. Tissues or cloth handkerchiefs?
Cloth handkerchiefs if they're old and soft, but aloe vera tissues if they're not.
10. Do you like Frozen?
Yes! I'm obsessed with it!
11. Anna or Elsa (from Frozen)?
Probably Anna, because she's more like me.

Now for Dally's questions!
1. Do you sew?
2. One or two of your favourite books
A thrilling term at Janeways and Heather leaves school.
3. If a frog walked up to you and licked your shirt, what would you think he was thinking?
I don't know!
4. Do you like pink? 
Yes, but only certain shades, and in moderation.
5. What would you grab if your house was on fire?
Charlotte, Melody, My camera, baby William and a number of other things, if I had time!
6. Do you enjoy photography? 
7. What are you best at drawing? (The better question: can you draw? XD) 
8. Do you have any allergies? 
Not that I know of..
9. Are you a science and math girl or a reading and writing girl (or both, like me)? 
Reading and writing girl.
10. What do you like about yourself? 
My amazing hair colour!
11. Would you rather dress up or wear sweats to the prom? 
Dress up, definitely!

Now for the questions:

-What do you think of this award?
I must say, I am impressed! The name is very unique (and actually makes sense!), and I think it's a great idea to have an award especially for those blogs that are just starting out, considering most awards only tend to go around the biggest blogs.

Yes, but only a few times.

I don't know! I haven't read that many AG books.
