And some other people I’m not going to mention at the moment. Without further ado, The Guiding Compass, Part 1! *dim the lights* Kanani Akina straightened the skirt of her blue, peplum dress and surveyed the room before her.  She and her 5 other sisters had {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}

Spotlight on Kaya

Here is a little something I wrote about a year ago, right before I started my blog. I thought this would be a great time to post it since the Beforever Spotlight is on Kaya. Enjoy! Most people would say, dolls are not alive, but one doll is different from the rest. The Native American doll named Kaya looks adorable on the outside. Inside, she has a personality. First of all, Kaya is a very picky eater. As a Native {Read More}

Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day! AG has decided to make the Beforever spotlight on Kaya this month!  Their site still shows Samantha under the spotlight though. *Sigh* Kaya doesn’t get the attention she deserves. Josefina doesn’t get any either. Kaya looks adorable in her LE set! I love it. Red looks great on her! Look at Kaya’s face! It’s so cute! Kaya loves plants and nature, which is why I did a photoshoot with her! I hope you enjoyed the pictures! Did {Read More}


Sarah laughed as Tutu climbed on top of her. She tried to bat her away, but Tutu kept at it. “Hey Sarah,” said Jamie. “Hi,” Sarah replied, sitting up, “What’s up? Where’s Mom?” “Where else? Playing with her Beanie Boos again.” Jamie pouted. “She never plays with us anymore.” “Jamie, you know that isn’t true.” Sarah said. “Yes it is,” Kaya said from the upper bed. It looked as if she had been crying. “What’s wrong?” Jamie asked, “Are you {Read More}

My New Doll Drawing!

Yippee! I’m finally done with my drawing of all of my dolls! I am so happy with the way it turned out! I think my favorite dolls in the picture are Kaya, Grace and Jamie. I love the design on Kaya’s dress and she looks so pretty in it, even on paper! 🙂 Grace is really cute because of her sweet smile. Her shirt turned out great. I really like Jamie’s mischievous smile on her face. It looks really funny to {Read More}

What Mom Bought (Part 1)

“Hey girls! Hey!” Jamie called, bursting into the dolls’ room, “Look at my awesome new outfit!” “Wow,” Kanani remarked, “Uh, that’s trendy.” “I know, right?” Jamie said, twirling around, “Isn’t it awesome?” Isabelle, who was petting Tutu, said, “Cool leggings! Where did you get them?” “I think Mom received them for her birthday. It was a few days ago.” Jamie replied. “I didn’t know it was Mom’s birthday,” Sarah said. She was playing with Isabelle’s American Girl doll. “Neither did {Read More}

American Girl Store Feb. 2015 Part 1

Yesterday we went to the American Girl doll store. I took over 50 photos. I have so many that I’m going to have to split them up into several parts. Anyway, I got a new doll, and a some birthday gifts for Kaya and Jamie. Guess which doll I got? You probably will guess right. 🙂 First up, the Beforever displays. This is Kaya by her teepee with her horses. Looks like Grace is a time traveler! Even though I don’t have {Read More}

Bonding Time with Kaya

Hello, it’s me, Isabelle. Today I had a great time with my sister, Kaya. Before today, I really didn’t know her very well. Now I feel like we are starting to be friends. I was at my house/wardrobe applying makeup to my face. Sometimes I like to have a little fun with it. Then Kaya just walked up. “Hello Isabelle,” Kaya said shyly. She had a sheepish look on her face. “Did I interrupt you?” “No, no,” I assured her, {Read More}

Fringe and Beads: A Photoshoot

Enjoy these colorful pictures of Kaya! I love this picture. She just looks so calm and peaceful. Moccasins!   When I first got Kaya, I was worried that her beads would fall out, since they are not secured. I have had no problem with them; they have always stayed in! Thanks for reading! I always love seeing how the pictures turn out! – American Girl Doll Artist 🙂
