As promised, here are the winners of WISD #12! I loved reading your captions, you guys are ridiculously funny. I hope you enjoy the winning captions as much as I did. :)

Anyway. The winners are . . .

25 Things All American Girl Fans can Relate to

Hey, guys!

I put together a list of things that I run into a lot as an American Girl lover. Hopefully some other fans can relate, too!

By the way, it’s 100% OK to not be able to relate to most (or any) of the things on this list. It’s doesn’t make you a fake fan or anything like that. These are just pulled from my own experiences, and it’s fine if we appreciate dolls in different ways.

Enjoy! :)


1) “What are you going to spend your birthday/Christmas money on?” . . . Dolls.

2) Hearing your grandparents talk about your dolls is actually painful. How many different versions of “American dolls” are there?

3) Constantly losing their hairbrush. I’ve had about four doll brushes in my life and I only know where one is.

4) Seeing a really cool location for a photoshoot in public, but being too embarrassed to bring your doll there.

6) Your camera dying/the weather changing as soon as you’ve finished prepping for a shoot.

7) You’re always broke because you spend your money on doll clothes/accessories as soon as you have enough.

8) Being nervous about bringing new friends to your house because they’ll see your doll collection.

9) Getting an amazing idea for a new post . . . at 1 a.m.

11) Hanging onto every weird knickknack because you might use it for a photostory some day. Do I really need this tiny rattle? No. Am I going to keep it anyway? Absolutely.

12) “I think I know more about American Girl dolls than you do, genius,” is your favorite vine. (My favorites are actually those ones about the guy who can’t find his berries, but that’s beside the point.)

13) You have plans for tons of custom dolls that you’ll never makes.

14) You might have cried a little bit when Doll Diaries and Innerstar U shut down (R.I.P.).

16) You’ve spent countless hours scrolling through AGIG, drooling over all the gorgeous photographs.

17) You’ve been searching eBay for years, trying to track down that GOTY that you regret not buying.

18) Freaking out about your dolls getting silver eye whenever they get slightly wet.

19) Playing games and taking quizzes on the American Girl website was a staple part of your childhood (the pet ones were the best).

21) No matter how bad the GOTY movies are, you’re still going to watch them.

22) You have a box filled with old American Girl magazines and catalogs somewhere.

23) The first time you went to an American Girl store was a dream come true.

24) You’ll never forget how excited you were when you got your first American Girl doll.

25) No matter how old you get, your dolls will always have a special place in your heart.


How many can you relate to? Can you think of anything else that should’ve been on this list? Let me know in the comments, and have a great day!

Guest Post: Rolling Rock Dolls

Hey, guys! We’ve got a guest post today from the lovely Celeste about her doll clothes business. I’ve looked at her Etsy shop, and I’m amazed at how gorgeous her products are. My personal favorites are the Merida gown, pink Christmas dress, and the mermaid dress.

Enjoy the post and make sure to check out Celeste’s blog and shops!


Hi everyone, this is Celeste of Rolling Rock Dolls, I make doll clothes and accessories for dolls, mostly for the famous 18″ American Girl. You can find me on Etsy, Ebay and even Amazon. My doll business has been accidental, I just wanted to learn how to sew and then found out I can make an income out of my creativity making doll clothes. I think I am now addicted to collecting dolls, not just American Girl but also other brands like Disney Animators and Barbie. I enjoy being able to stay home and sew some beautiful dresses. Most dresses that I make are princess gowns or fairies. Dolls can be anything their owner wants them to be which is fun. Here are some dresses from my online shops.

Please feel free to check out these links to go to my online shops:

Thank you very much Loren for allowing me to guest post on your doll blog, I enjoy the pictures you post here.

April Showers | AGPS

I would’ve liked to post something else to break up all the photoshoots, but I needed this to go up in April for the title to make sense. They’re just photos of Nevaeh that I didn’t use in my outfit review post, but I liked them too much to never do anything with them.

I guess my blogiversary giveaway is getting pushed back another month, and I’m really sorry. It’s taking a lot longer to come together than I expected. Spoiler alert: I’m probably going to say this exact thing every month until eventually this giveaway becomes a celebration for my fifth blogiversary. I may be joking now, but honestly, that’s exactly what’s going to happen. I know how much I procrastinate.

I was really looking forward to spring so I could take pictures of my dolls in front of all the flowers, but I actually haven’t done any shoots like that. Spring always seems to go by too quickly for me, and now I don’t really have any post ideas. Any suggestions would be super helpful. :)

Winter Blues | AGPS

 

It’s snowing again, so I thought it would be an appropriate time to post these photos (taken on the same day that I made Ivy’s Guide to Snow Days). We were supposed to get this huge snow storm a few days ago, but then nothing happened? It was a little disappointing because I wanted more snow days. Anyway, it’s not really snowing right now, just flurrying, but it reminded me to post these.

I feel like some of pictures are way too saturated. I’m not sure what happened. I didn’t edit them to be like that. I still like them, though.

Huh. I never know what to talk about at the end of photo shoots. I probably rant too much on my other blog, and then I don’t have anything new to say here.

Oh, here’s something: an update on my blogiversary giveaway. It’s coming along a little slowly, but I’m getting there. A bought ten new books a few days ago (including the entire Peculiar Children trilogy by Ransom Riggs) and I’ve been focusing on them rather then working on my giveaway. Sorry? Expect the giveaway around mid April.

Have a good day! :)
