Gotcha! – A Photostory

I watched the mixer spin around and around. I was making madeleines, a delicious french treat, perfect for the Patisserie. The ingredients were swirling around smoothly and soon I would have the perfect madeleine dough. After a few minutes of being hypnotized, I realized that someone was at the counter. Well, actually, they made me come to my senses when they cleared their throat, a little loudly, at that. “I’m coming, I’m coming!” I exclaimed. I rushed to the counter, {Read More}

Christmas Morning – A Photostory

All the dolls were snug in their beds. Well, some of the dolls were in sleeping bags on the floor, but they were still snug. The sun was just coming up over the horizon, and light was peeking into the dolls’ bedroom.   Isabelle was the first one to stir. She decided to sleep for a few more moments, until she remembered what day it was! It was Christmas! She lifted her head, and looked to see if any of {Read More}

Grace in the Garden – A Photoshoot

Why so many photoshoots? I guess I’ve been inspired by all the #Joy2EveryGirl Instagram American Girl doll photos. I had lots of fun taking these and editing them. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have! Here’s Grace sitting in a chair. It’s the same red bistro chair that they use at all the American Girl stores for the Grace photo op. All these photos were taken at my grandma’s house.  My grandma owns 2 red bistro chairs {Read More}

Sewing: Pleated Skirt

Today, Grace is here modeling the new pleated skirt I sewed a few days ago. I used the pleated skirt pattern from Pixie Faire and it was very easy. 🙂 I had lots of fun and Grace looks super cute in it! Isn’t she cute? A close up of the design. Here’s a picture I made of Grace sitting in the grass. I used Photoshop and made the little polka-dots around her. 🙂 And Catlover02’s new kitten wanted to play {Read More}

American Girl’s Grace Mistakes

Here are a couple of interesting things I’ve noticed that AG has messed up on. They are pretty interesting though! The first one is involving the pastry cart online. Here is the pastry cart’s first photo. Then, it shows the pastry cart without all the goodies. Did you notice what the sign said? Huh? Polka dot Patisserie? I noticed this because I printed out a picture of Grace’s pastry cart so I could make a coloring page of it. I {Read More}

Surprises in the Attic

“Hi, Jessica. Do you want to play with our dolls?” Grace asked. Jessica shook her head. “Kaya is playing with my doll right now. I might play later.” “Mom has an extra doll! Please? Pretty please with a french macaron?” Grace pleaded. Jessica smiled, knowing that Grace wouldn’t give up. “Well………” Jessica paused for effect. “Sure. Where is the doll?” Grace cheered. “It’s in the attic.” “Um, OK.” Jessica ran back to her room to get a flashlight. The attic didn’t {Read More}

Review: Bonbon

Ever since Grace came out, Bonbon had been on my wishlist. Since I purchased Grace online, and didn’t buy her in the store, I didn’t want to pay for extra shipping for Bonbon, so I bought Bonbon on the next trip to AG. I totally don’t regret buying her. She so cuddly and soft. Her big ears are adorable and her red bow/collar is super cute. Overall, her appearance is great. Her fur is white instead of cream and isn’t {Read More}
