The Guiding Compass – Part 2

The door opened slightly, and a timid-looking girl appeared in the doorway. Her dirty blonde curls matched her tan complexion and reached the waist of her brightly colored tribal print dress. With one of her hands she clutched the embroidered strap of her burlap messenger bag and in the other she held a camera. Its neon pink strap dangled from it, unused.

Lea To the Rescue – Movie Trailer

American Girl has released the movie trailer to Lea’s new movie, Lea to the Rescue! It was rumored to be “Lea Leads the Way,” but it’s not.

I’m glad they switched it. 🙂 I am looking forward to watching it sometime. 🙂 The actor who plays Lea looks almost too young, compared to Olivia Rodrigo, who looked a little old for her part as Grace, in Grace {Read More}

Hello! Several days ago my little siblings had soccer practice and I went with them to take pictures of Jamie and Isabelle in a new location. I really like how these turned out. 🙂 So cute! Jamie’s actually holding the picnic basket on her own – no rubber bands included. I actually left my doll hairbrush there overnight. 😉 My parents had to go get it the next day. Some of the paint has chipped off, but it’s still good. {Read More}
