What is She Doing?! #12 | Winners

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. :)

By the way, I’m sorry for not posting this yesterday. There was a family picnic/birthday party for my cousins at my house yesterday, and I didn’t get a chance to use the computer at all. Sorry!

Anyway. The winners are . . .

What is She Doing?! #12

Hey, guys!

We’re playing What is She Doing?! today. Basically, it’s the same thing as Caption It: I show you a picture, then it’s up to you to decided what that the dolls in the picture as saying.

Ellie is reading in the shade and MJ is working in the garden when a giant snake appears. What happens next is up to you!

If you don’t know how to play, here are the rules:

– Leave a comment with one or two captions for this photo
– On June 16, I’ll announce the winners (my favorite captions)
– There’s no prize, this is just for fun

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Guess My New Doll | Hints (2)

(Inspired by Natalie)

Hello, friends! I’ve got some more hints about my new doll for you today. :)

Hint #3: she’s been retired.

Hint #4: she likes adventure.

Also, some of you said it can’t be Lea, since I already have her (mine is named Eve). But if she fits the clues, I wouldn’t rule her out just because of that. I could always be making a custom. And I’m not confirming anything, I’m just saying you should have an open mind. ;)

She’s supposed to arrive on Thursday and I can’t wait. I haven’t bought a new doll in just over a year (Parker was purchased in January, 2017), and it seems I’ve forgotten how exciting it can be. With school, scouts, and gymnastics going on, it might be difficult for me to squeeze in time to photograph her for an introductory post, but I’ll do that as soon as I get a chance.

Do these new hints change your mind about which doll I got? You can update your guess in the comments, or stick by your old choice.

Guess My New Doll | Hints

(Inspired by Natalie)

Well, friends, I did it again. There is another American Girl doll for me in the mail.

She’s going to be my fourteenth AG doll — oops? I really don’t need anymore, and I wasn’t planning on buying one anytime soon, but I have money leftover from Christmas and poor impulse control.

The doll isn’t due to arrive until the 8th, so in the meantime, I thought I’d post a few hints as to which one she could be.

Hint #1: she has a film.

Hint #2: she loves animals.

I’ll hopefully post more clues before she gets here, so you guys can have a better chance of picking the right doll. :)

Who do you think she is? Leave your guesses in the comments! (Except for Sam and Rutvi, you two aren’t allowed to guess.) Anyone who gets the right answer will get a shout-out.

Updated “The Dolls” Page + Quiz!

550px x 550px – ♡ - Mozilla Firefox 682017 31507 PM

I redid my dolls’ profiles for the first time in almost four years!

A few things changed: I deleted some useless information, so they look somewhat neater now. Most of them have new profile pictures, too, and if I’ve done a review of a doll, I linked to it. A few of them have slightly different personalities, but I didn’t suddenly make Saige a sweetheart or anything drastic like that.

I also added profiles for my Ever After High, Hearts4Hearts, Madame Alexander, and mini dolls, although they aren’t very in-depth. You’ll have to visit The Dolls page to read them.

Now that I have a better understanding of who my dolls are, it might be easier to make photostories. Who knows. ;)

This is a cause for celebration, since it took me over a year to quit procrastinating and update the profiles. So I created a short quiz that tells you which of my dolls you’re most like. Take it and tell me the results in the comments!

What is She Doing #11 | Winners

Hey, guys! As promised, here are the winning captions for WISD #11. I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I did. :)


blackiesunshine‘s:

Isabelle: Ah! Who are you supposed to be?
Ghosts: We are ghosts, coming to photobomb your pictures, so that you can be famous all over the internet . . .
Isabelle: Convenient. Hold still while I focus . . .
Ghosts: NO!
Isabelle: What?
Ghosts: DON’T FOCUS!
Isabelle: But you said . . .
Ghosts: Everyone knows that ghost photos must be as blurry as possible, with little or no attention to shutter speed, lighting, or focus.
Isabelle: But my reputation as a good photographer will be so ruined if I post a blurry, dark, out-of-focus picture on Instagram!
Ghosts: ‘Tis a small price to pay for fame.
Isabelle: *sighs*


A.’s

Isabelle walked down the street, clenching Coconut’s leash tightly. Izzy was starting to get frustrated, though, because Coconut would stop and smell the leaf-covered grass. “Come ON, Coco.” Izzy groaned, pulling at her dog’s leash. She had decided to take photos of Coconut, as she wouldn’t really be able to take anymore photos because it was getting cold outside. Izzy was attempting to take Coco to a nearby park, but her plan wasn’t exactly succeeding. Coconut stopped for what felt like the millionth time, but this time not to smell flowers. Instead, Coconut smelled two small figures covered in a white sheet. “Coconut!” Isabelle commanded. “Away from the tiny-ghost-marshmallow-munchkin-thingies! Run back home!” Izzy’s grip loosened on Coconut’s leash, eventually allowing her dog to run home.
Izzy was terrified. The tiny-ghost-marshmallow-munchkin-thingies chased after her, trying to not only bite her ankles, but trip her so she would be level with them. Isabelle sped up, trying to get back home. “No! NOOOOOO!” she cried. “Someone! Please help!” But Isabelle wasn’t fast enough. Two tiny hands grasped her ankles and she hit the concrete.

(Loren’s note: this is so dramatic, I love it.)


Samantha‘s:

Isabelle: Oh my goodness, they’re little ghosts, they’re going to eat away our SOULS, Coconut, we have to run away!
Coconut: Ummm, Izzy, I’m pretty sure they’re just mini dolls.
Isabelle: No, foolish dog! They are demons!
Mini Rebecca: BOOOO!
Isabelle: *starts sobbing*
Coconut: Are you freaking kidding me, that’s Aciana and Rebecca.
Isabelle: *runs away screaming*


You guys have the weirdest humor. I’m incredibly entertained.

Please don’t be too upset if your caption wasn’t chosen, it’s just a game. I’ll probably post more of these in the future, so your caption might be picked then.

Have a good day!
