Happy Valentine’s Day From Popcorn! (A Mini Photostory) + A Poll!

Hi, everyone! Are you surprised to see me here? Well, Emmie really wanted to do an awesome gigantic photo-story, but unfortunately she got sick and couldn’t do it! So I swooped in to the rescue and made this little post for you guys!

I hope you all have an absolutely fantastic V-Day (as I like to call it)! Also, do you like this little flower setup I did? It’s not much, but when your owner kept coughing into the roses, you have to make do. 😉

SELFIE TIME!!!! Do you like chocolate for Valentine’s day? If so, what kind? RUSSEL STOVER IS THE BEST. But since I’m a dog I can’t exactly eat chocolate, but from what I’ve heard from Emmie and her dolls IT’S AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! And I want it! *whimpers*

There’s gonna be a ZCN soon, so watch out for that! So, make sure to comment down below the link to your Valentine’s post for a chance to be featured in the episode! Oh, look’s like Chewy wants the camera – here you go Chewy!

“WHAT ON EARTH IS THIS THINGY?” It’s a camera, Chewy! “Oh. What’s a camera?” Just let Emmie take your picture!

*Poses dramatically and thoughtfully, hair blowing in the breeze* *Is thinking about bacon* Happy Valentine’s Day, guys! May it be full of lots of chocolate and bacon! But not together, that would be gross. Lemme rephrase that: May your day be full of bacon for dinner/breakfast/lunch and chocolate for dessert!

So, I’m wondering something: What are your favorite posts to see? So I can give you guys, my readers, the content you want to see, I created a poll to help me decide what to post more and see what you like!

CLICK HERE FOR THE POLL!

Thanks for reading, guys! Don’t forget to comment the link to your Valentine’s posts, and we just might be back Wednesday for an awesome photostory!

New Year’s Resolutions! | A Photostory

It’s January 6th, meaning most of you guys have set your New Year’s Resolutions! In this post, the AGW crew will tell you about theirs in this photostory! I can’t wait for you guys to read this and I had so much fun making it!


1

Lea: “My new year’s resolution is to get more rest and relax more. I’m always busy and out-and-about, so I want to do some self-care once in a while. I’ll probably be reading my Bible during that relaxation time. The only thing – it’ll be hard to relax with Maryellen around…”

3

Maryellen: “HEYYYYYY!!!! That is SO NOT TRUE!!!!!!! Check your facts, missy! I am a VERY RELAXED PERSON!!”

Lea: *muttering* “Are you though?”

4

Maryellen: “Anyways, my resolution: I want to try gymnastics. It seems really fun and I enjoy being upside down and doing a bunch of energetic things in a row. I think I have some more -”

9

Jade: *interrupts* “My resolution is to get into the American Girl Academy ballet company, and I also want to learn how to do flexibility tricks.”

14

Tenney: “I want the Shooting Star’s tour to be spectacular when we set off this May and for it to sell out! I also want to learn to play another instrument – maybe the violin.”

11

Isabel: “Uhh, Tenney, the first one isn’t really a resolution, more of a wish…Anyways, my resolution is to make the AGA junior dance competition team and junior ballet company. I also want to start reading my Bible every day like Jade does.”

5

Maryellen: “What I was SAYING before I was so RUDELY INTERRUPTED, my other resolution is to outdo myself and everyone else this April fools and pull some awesome pranks. Also, this is random but I want a skateboard, and if I get a skateboard then my other other resolution is to be able to ride it to the donut place and back by the end of summer.”

13

Logan: “My resolution is, as captain of the AGA basketball team, I will lead them to the championships again this year. Also, like Tenney, I am going to try my best to help make the tour as awesome as possible.”

2

Maryellen: “Charlie, that’s a weird resolution. I thought of one more: be even MORE awesome this year, if that’s even possible! My awesomeness is so insanely awesome that I will make an awesome resolution to be even more awesome!”

12

Alexandra: “Maryellen, that was the most confusing resolution ever. This year, I want to write a book. I’ve written various short stories and poems, but in 2019 I want to attempt a full-length novel! Also, I’m going to audition for Tenney and Logan’s band this year, and I really want to succeed! I plan to practice guitar, piano, and singing everyday in preparation for my audition.”

Untitled design.png

Charlie: “Every year I have some sort of complicated resolution that I forget about a week into the new year. So this year, I’ve decided to do something very simple that I know I can achieve and I will not forget. This year my resolution is to get out of bed each and every morning.”

16

Felicity: “I don’t make resolutions. Instead, I make a word for the year. This year, my word of the year is release. Release the old, welcome the new, and don’t hold on to bitter or bad feelings.”

15

Felicity: “Thank you all so much for reading this post! Emmie is praying that ya’ll have an awesome year. Happy 2019, everyone!”

What are your/your dolls’ resolutions? What are you most looking forward to in 2019?

Flashback. (A Christmas AGSM Movie) | For 200 Followers + 1 Year on YouTube!

Make sure click here to go to the website so the video shows up!

The other day I was at a pizza restaurant, mindlessly staring at the maximum occupancy: 160 sign. Today, I looked back on that moment and realized something absolutely CRAZY: All of my followers wouldn’t fit in that pizza restaurant!

You guys, I CANNOT thank you enough. When I started this blog I had NO IDEA how much it would grow – 200 followers seemed like a distant dream I could never achieve. I remember how happy I was when I got my first follower – you can only imagine how happy I am now!

Of course, blogging isn’t about followers at all. I used to get jealous of other blogs, thinking, I’ve had my blog longer than them but they have a lot more followers than me. I’ve definitely improved on that, and it seemed like when I stopped obsessing over follower counts and paid attention to creating and reading awesome content, my follow count started growing!

The least I can do to thank you guys besides this rambling ‘speech’ is finally post flashback.! I really, really wanted to get this up by Christmas, but due to several complications, I wasn’t able to. I’ve been working on it even harder for the past few days, and I just finished the final product today!

Without further ado… flashback: a christmas agsm movie!

Please click here to like, comment, and subscribe to the channel!

Destiny Phillips hasn’t been herself ever since her diabetes diagnosis last year. When the anniversary of her sickness rolls around, Christmas isn’t what it used to be. With the help of Present & Future, can Destiny become herself again?

I’m so, so excited you guys can finally see this! I’ve been working on it all December, and I think I’ve filmed & edited for about thirty hours in total. Make sure to tell me what you think (and if you recognized some of Destiny’s backstory from this post)!

Also, one more fun thing: I’ve been on YouTube for 1 year and 1 day! I started it on the last day of 2017. Even though I don’t upload as consistently as I do on the blog, or have very many subscribers, I still love making videos and I’m so grateful to have my channel! Kaylyn’s live videos have also helped me connect with other AGTubers, which is so cool! You can check out the AGW YouTube channel here!

Here’s to an awesome 2019! I have so many great things planned for AGW this year, and I can’t wait for y’all to see them. Here’s to an awesome year!

Farewell Fall & Welcome Winter!

Hey marshmallows! If you’re wondering why I’m posting the day after the winter solstice (jk you’re probably not), it’s because yesterday was my 2-year blogaversiary! You can check out the post and an AGSM movie trailer here! Anyways, on to the post!

It’s officially winter, which means it’s time for another seasonal wrap-up! First, we’re going to look at some of the pros + cons about this fall.



cons

  • In September I got a bug bite that got infected, which made me anxious and kind of sick
  • The big surprise got canceled because there was only one person that sent in a photo story that didn’t have to be disqualified, which is REALLY disappointing because we worked super hard on it for half a year. 😭😭 BUT, Natalie & I hope to bring FPC back this summer.
  • We had to switch math teachers in the middle of the year, which was a little confusing, but I feel like with the new teacher I understood the lessons a lot better. And we’re going to have to get ANOTHER math teacher when we get back from winter break so that’ll be crazy.
  • I got sick during Thanksgiving break
  • Otherwise, I had an okay fall!

pros

  • MY BIRTHDAY
  • Halloween!
  • I got a new domain and redesigned American Girl World!
  • The first semester of 5th grade was AWESOME
  • Nutcracker!!!
  • I feel like I’ve really improved in ballet this fall, and I did great on the Christmas/winter recital!
  • I got Paris!
  •  Thanksgiving
  • I had an all-As report card
  • Christmas shopping/prep/traditions
  • SCHOOL 👏 GOT 👏 OUT 👏
  • Lots of filming for Flashback. A Christmas AGSM Movie
  • Fall was pretty good!

I think that besides September, I did pretty well stats-wise this fall!



did i complete my goals?

  • NaNoWriMo! (which I may or may not be participating in. I’m still deciding.)

I finished the planning goal of 114 pages during the first 20 days of NaNo, and then on the last day crammed in 3,000 words so I could reach my goal of 3114 words! It was really hard to complete it, and I had to bring down my goal a few times on the last day, but I have most of the first chapter done!

  • I WILL finish the first draft of my novel!

Ummm…not really. Once again, I hit a block in my novel and wasn’t sure how to continue. I just now picked it up again, and I hope to finish it by the end of 2018!

  • THE BIG SURPRISE (for real this time!!)

Yup, but, it didn’t do as well as I thought it would. (See above cons)

  • I will gain core and foot strength from my pre-pointe classes!

Yeah, I think I’ve really improved!

  • LOTS of Nutcracker prep

We just BARELY made it up on the wheelbarrow (a giant stunt where ten of us hook our legs on to each other wheelbarrow style and have to hold it for two whole eight counts. It’s a lot harder than it sounds!) but Nutcracker went pretty well, and I got to be one of the lead polis!

  • My birthday!!!

You can check out my birthday post here!

  • And, just so I can annoy my future self…

Oh boy. 🤦

  • SO MUCH MORE! 😉 😉

No comment. 😂



so you’ve been rambling about this fall…what happens in winter?

  • Christmas will be totally awesome!
  • 2019 will be the best year yet!
  • Some really cool post videos and posts I’ve got some ideas for!
  • Posts at least once a week, maybe even twice a week!
  • I will post more on and redesign my faith blog, Standing Firm in My Faith!
  • School will get back and I will do great!
  • I will finish my novel before the end of 2018 and then continue Paris Takes the Shot!
  • I will improve at ballet/contemporary/pre-pointe!

That’s it for the post! Thanks for reading, marshmallows!

Two Years {Flashback Trailer}

Two years ago today, a girl finally mustered up the courage to ask her parents for a blog.

The girl had been reading an American Girl Doll blog called Doll Stories and immediately fell in love with blogging. She would make fake YouTube videos with her dolls and friends but never uploaded them to anything. Maybe if I had a blog, she thought, I could share my creativity with the world.

When her mom replied with a “Sure,” the girl raced to her iPad and set up a Blogger blog under her dad’s Google account. For whatever reason, she decided to call herself the very random username of “Pheonix” (Phoenix even being spelled wrong.)

When her dad got home from work, he was a bit upset that his Google account and full name were now on the Internet for everyone to see, so he helped the girl set up her own Google account and her own blog.

But because the girl didn’t have a Google tablet, she wasn’t able to easily post photos. So, the girl’s dad researched blogging platforms, and found WordPress! The girl’s Blogger username, Pheonix, was already taken, so she chose the even random-er username “EmeraldPheonix”.

And since that first post, her blog has continued to grow. She eventually learned how to spell phoenix and gave herself the nickname of Emmie (short for EMeraldPhoenix). She met so many awesome friends, expressed herself, got the premium plan and a new domain, discovered a love for writing and photography, and started two other blogs.

In case you couldn’t tell, ‘the girl’ is me. Thank you all for an amazing two years. ❤

It’s really exciting to see how far I’ve come since last year and when I started this blog! When we reach 200 followers, I will do a Q&A or another blog party!


The Trailer

In honor of my 2-year blogaversiary, I created the trailer for my AGSM movie, Flashback! If you’ve been wondering why I haven’t been posting much other than the Emmie awards, it’s because I’ve been filming nonstop to get this AGSM movie done!

Make sure to click here to like the video and subscribe to the AGW YouTube channel and click that notification bell so you never miss a video!

Are you excited for Flashback? I know I am! I’ve been working really hard on it, and I’m a little scared I won’t be able to finish it before Christmas. And even if I don’t, I’ll get it up by the end of the year, so stay tuned!


Are you looking forward to Flashback: A Christmas AGSM Movie? Can you believe it’s already been two years? Did you watch the trailer? What did you think?

Love you guys! Thanks for following along this amazing journey!

Z Crew News: Episode 2 | Coverage You Can Count On (Featuring Clara from Clara and Co!)

Welcome back to ZCN! I’m Ziana Yang, the star reporter and anchorwoman for the series. In today’s episode, we’ve got some news, interviews, sneak peeks, and more for you to enjoy!


ZCN Episode 2 (3)This fan-favorite segment, Around the Blogosphere, highlights what’s been going on in the past few months around the blogosphere. Let’s take a look!

Tess from the awesome blog Steeplechase has achieved an amazing feat! For the entire month of October, she posted every single day with a fun and exciting topic. Some of my personal favorites include: Taking a Casual Stroll on a Wednesday {APADO 17}Everyday Miracles {APADO #12}, and Conversations With 13-Year-Old Me {APADO #4}. Congratulations, Tess! Don’t forget to check out her APADO recap and take her survey here. Thanks for the tip, Madi!

Madison from Delightful World of Dolls has been blogging for 6 years! The blog has become a blogosphere icon, filled with spectacular writing and gorgeous photos. As Madi states in her 6-year blogaversiary post, “Believe me, the moment I am sustainably healthy and have my skyrocketing energy back…*in Terminator voice* I’ll be back.”** Be praying for her!

With many bloggers banging out the next bestselling novel during NaNoWriMo, several bloggers are going on hiatus. However, we’re glad to see Bekah from Questionable Tourtise Couture back from her ‘Unexpected Hiatus‘! Don’t forget to enter her Q&A, too.

Eleanor from Pointe to Christ got hearing aids! “Due to repetitive ear infections, vertigo, and other damage to my ears, I lost a lot of my hearing,” she writes in a recent post. “I lost 80% in my right ear, and 50% in my left ear. I need hearing aids, and I got them about 2 1/2 weeks ago. It has been so, so, so, so, soooooooo amazing! I have heard so many beautiful things that I’ve never ever heard before (take flip-flops, WHO KNEW THEY MADE NOISE???) There are still some things I cannot even believe make noise.”*

ZCN Episode 2 (2)

She’s also working on a world-changing project that shares God’s Word and spreads light into the universe, one letter at a time. Eleanor is inspiring you and people everywhere to write letters every day this month encouraging a random person and leave them in a place where someone could find it! Here at AGW, we’ve been trying our best to write one letter every day this November. Learn more and join in at the website, letterswithapurpose.wordpress.com!

Clara from Clara and Co. is hosting a giveaway and blog tour! You can check out her post here. Stay tuned for a special spotlight on her brand new business and AGW’s spot on the Blogger Box blog tour at the end of this post! Her little sister, Laura, is also hosting a giveaway of her own! Enter to win some awesome washi tape here.

Now that you’re caught up on what’s going on in the blogosphere, let’s take a look at our other segment: What’s Up, AGW?


ZCN Episode 2 (5).png

This NaNoWriMo, Emmie’s doing something totally different than usual! “I recently got K.M. Weiland’s Structuring Your Novel and its accompanying workbook, and for the first few days of NaNo, I’ve been structuring!” Emmie states. “I have a separate goal of 139 words – each word represents a workbook page. When I finish a workbook page, I update my “word count” and watch as my completion percentage goes up a little. According to the NaNoWriMo YWP website’s progress tracker, I should be done on November 9!”

After completing the structure, she plans to skip the outlining part of her novel and dive straight into writing. “I’ve never really liked a super-long outlining process, but I hope to try it for the rewrite of my Huntress novel. For now, my structure is serving as an outline, so that way I know where I’m going and hopefully will get the timing right, while also having more creative freedom during the actual process of writing the novel itself.”

ZCN Episode 2 (4).png

The currently untitled novel is going to be a book about AGW’s newest doll, Paris. “It’s formatted like an AG Meet Book and follows the story of how she came to AG Academy,” Emmie says. I’m even one of the main characters!

Emmie plans to self-publish the book for her 3-year blogaversiary! “I wouldn’t be able to finish it in time for the upcoming 2-year blogaversiary,” she explains. “But, I do have some other exciting things planned.”

One of those exciting things is The Emmie Awards! Last year’s Emmie Awards celebrated all kinds of bloggers and their achievements, and this year, we plan to take it up a notch. There’s going to be red-carpet photos, a blog party, and possibly even a real-life prize for the Blog of the Year award! Of course, this year Z Crew News will be covering the whole event.

Emmie’s also been working on a top-secret Christmas AGSM, too. More information and a trailer are coming your way this December!

Isabel got her wig replaced! A post and AGSM are coming up about the (super long) process and results.

Speaking of surprises, the Big Surprise is almost ready to go! Expect to see it this weekend.


ZCN Episode 2 (1)

Let’s turn our attention towards an awesome blogger for our stop on an awesome blog tour. Today, I’m going to be spotlighting Clara from Clara and Co. with a special article!

“What first inspired me to create The Blogger Box was the lack of [subscription] boxes designed specifically for bloggers. After spending a while trying to find a blogger-specific box with no results, I decided to make one myself!” Clara says in a recent interview with me.

The young entrepreneur says that “The first people to know [about my idea for the Blogger Box] were my parents! When I came up with the idea, I quickly typed it up in a Google Doc and shared it with them. They both seemed excited about the idea, and it just grew from there.”

From start to finish, it’s taken Clara six months to make this a reality. “The hardest part for me was finding the best prices on everything I wanted to include in the boxes. My favorite part has been promoting and marketing the box by designing logos, a website, etc.”

“My hope for the future of the Blogger Box is that I will inspire as many bloggers as I can!” Clara says. “The Blogger Box will be launched on November 12th and can be purchased through the website, which will also be revealed on the 12th!”

You can follow the rest of the tour through these blogs:

Julia’s Creative Corner – November 3rd

The Lens and the Hard Drive – November 4th

Wild Writing Dreams – November 5th

American Girl World – November 6th

re; | an Easter mega-photostory / ashton’s introductory mega-photostory

So.

I was going to post a stop-motion called The Prank but I decided to post this instead. I decided that Easter is more important than April Fools and I might make a separate post later.

But anyways, on to the photo-story! If you have trouble reading it, the caption for the photo is above the photo. He is risen!

re;newed hope

Ashton’s POV

My hand trembles as I raise it to knock on the door. My whole life flashes before my eyes: The days of living on the streets, the days of begging for food and money, the days of wishing endlessly for parents, for a home.

IMG_2577

For someone to love me.

IMG_2576

That’s why I’m here. For a home of my own. A family of my own. A place to renew my hope, my spirit.

IMG_2580

I knock.

IMG_2581

The door opens.

IMG_2584

A girl stands before me. She seems to be around 13 or so, and has jet black hair with red highlights and bright brown eyes. “Hello! Who are you?”

IMG_2586

“Ashton. I’ve been adopted by Emmie and she told me that this is the place where the rest of her dolls live.”

IMG_2585

“Ah, yes, Ashton! I recognize that name. Come on in, come on in!” She gestures welcoming-ly towards the inside of the house. I follow.

IMG_2588

“Hey, who’s that?” A brown-haired boy about my age walks over to me and the girl. “The new kid?”

IMG_2589

“The new kid has a name. That name, is Ashton…”

IMG_2590

“Um, I don’t really have a last name. That I know of.”

IMG_2591

“Oh.” She looks at me awkwardly. “Um, this is just Ashton.”

IMG_2594

“Well, hey Just Ashton.” Then, with a smirk, the boy walks away.

IMG_2593

“Who was that?” I ask the girl.

IMG_2595

“That,” she replies, “is Logan. Your new roommate.”

IMG_2600

I inwardly groan, because I can tell that Logan is the kind of boy who likes to pull practical jokes–and it doesn’t help that today is April Fools Day.

IMG_2597

 

“Hi!!YoumustbeAshtonIcan’tbeleiveyou’rehere!EmmiesaidyouwerecomingtodayandIamsohappyyouarehere!!Heylemmegiveyouatourofthehouserealquickthisisthebathroom,thelivingroom, thebedrooms,andyeahnicetomeetyouI’mMaryellen!!” A redheaded girl practically knocks me over with her hug.

IMG_2598

 

“Um, hi…?” I reply awkwardly.

IMG_2599

“Anyways,” the girl rolls her eyes at Maryellen, “It’s time to eat!”

IMG_2601

re;connected with a family

Ashton’s POV

All of the dolls sit down at the table.

IMG_2602

“Why are we having a feast today? Is April Fools’ day really special around here or something??” I whisper to the girl.

IMG_2603

“Uh, no.” The girl – whose name I recently learned is Z – says, “It’s Easter, silly goose!”

IMG_2605

“Oh, right! Do y’all do egg hunts here?”

IMG_2606

“We do, but Easter is way beyond that.”

IMG_2608

“What does that mean?”

IMG_2611

“Shhh, guys, it’s time to pray!” A blue-eyed girl announces. All the dolls join hands. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do, but I just follow Z’s lead and join hands with her and Maryellen.

IMG_2612

“We thank You for your goodness, your mercy, your faithfulness to us. I pray that You will bless this meal and nourish it into our bodies. And thank You for all that You did for us today many years ago–You took the punishment of our sin so we wouldn’t have to die for our mistakes. And thank You for all of the wonderful blessings You’ve given this family. Amen.”

IMG_2611

The rest of the dolls echo, “Amen.”

IMG_2613

I begin to eat, wondering about the prayer that was just said. Who is this You they are talking about? What punishment?

IMG_2609

re;born

Ashton’s POV

“Hey, you,” I tap on the blond girl’s shoulder.

IMG_2614

“My name is Alexandra or Lexie for short, but how can I help you?”

IMG_2617

“About the prayer at dinner,” I begin, “what did it mean?”

IMG_2618

“Here, sit down.” She says. “Well, do you know about God?”

IMG_2620

“Yes, I’ve heard of the Christian religion. But I’ve never really been aware of what you guys believe until now.”

IMG_2623

“Well, as a Christian, I believe that God sent down His one and only Son, Jesus, so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life with Him in Heaven.” (John 3:16)

IMG_2627

“How did this Jesus let believers go to Heaven?”

IMG_2626

“He died. On a cross. For our sin. He drank the cup of God’s wrath upon all sinners so we wouldn’t have to drink from it. Instead, we get to drink from the cup of God’s forgiveness. But three days later, He rose from the grave!! Jesus Christ conquered death that day.”

IMG_2629

“That’s crazy! want to go to Heaven. want to lead a life that honors Him. But how?”

IMG_2636

“Well, let’s follow the ABCs to becoming a Christian. First, A- admit to God that you’re a sinner, and repent.”

IMG_2633

“I am a sinner,” I cry aloud. It feels strange – yet in a weird way, comforting – to be talking to something that I can’t see.

IMG_2619

“Great! Now you just have to B, believe that Jesus is the Son of God and He died for you.”

IMG_2631

“I believe,” I reply quietly.

IMG_2630

“Again?”

IMG_2620

“I believe!” I shout loudly.

IMG_2632

“Lastly, for C – confess your faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior and LORD.”

IMG_2634

“I have faith that Jesus Christ is my Savior and LORD!”

IMG_2636

She hugs me as she says a prayer of salvation over me: “Dear Lord, I pray that you will help Ashton to lead a life that honors you. Help him to understand how much you sacrificed for us. Thank you for all that you’ve done for us.”

IMG_2637

“Amen,” we say together.

IMG_2631

And from that day on, I am a new person. I have been reborn through Jesus and all the amazing things that He’s done for me.

“For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” – Romans 3:23

“You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! 10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!” -Romans 5:6-10

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from the AGW Crew! *pinches everyone who is not wearing green* If you are wondering why Felicity and Maryellen are in old-times outfits is because I’m doing an oral report on WW2 Uniforms for school and I’m using them as my visual aid!

look who’s back! // nano summary, monthly recap-style goals, and a whole lot more

Look who’s back!

Hello people and dolls of the earth! After 1 month of a hiatus, I am finally…back! NaNoWriMo was super awesome, and I got to gain some writing experience, make some awesome friends (ok, they were all moderators who I emailed about bug reports, but they still count.), and I may have actually….won?

IMG_1649 2
This is a picture I took while I was outlining using this fabulous tutorial by Samantha.

Despite how much fun NaNoWriMo was, I missed you guys a lot! Its great to be back and I can’t wait for all that’s coming up in December.

NaNo-2017-Winner-Facebook-Cover.png
DISCLAIMER: In NO WAY I am trying to brag about winning AT ALL!

From my second NaNoWriMo and my first win, I learned a ton of new things about writing. I learned how to keep on top of your goals, create awesome characters, script witty dialogue, and throw in an evil, good-for-nothing antagonist. I spent half of my time procrastinating by reading posts on Madi Grace (who just recently changed her tagline: no more identity crisis for MG!), comics on NaNoToons, (my personal favorite: https://nanotoons.net/2017/11/26/2017-november-26th/), and reading all of your fabulous NaNoWriMo self-help posts. It was really difficult at times, but I was able to push through! (after a lot of pizza and chocolate though. Note how sad it is that that doesn’t include marshmallows. *sobs*)

IMG_1687.JPG
Me smack in the middle of writer’s block. ^

But december is going to be filled with some awesome things! A Christmas collab with Enni, for instance, (Enni, sorry I haven’t been e-mailing you about it! I have to get my dad to get me back in to my account…) and we have a fabulous new Christmas site design! Check out the site if you’re reading this in the reader to check it out!

Aaaaannnddd…the goals + events! (Since there was no November goals, I’m not going to be recapping those.)

  • Post every other day on AGW, and the other days on TRW! (Felicity will be posting once a week)
  • Memorize some Bible verses

That’s it!

Check out the new look @ https_pheonixamericangirlworld.wordpress.com.png

Waiiiit….you didn’t think I’d let you leave without snippets, did you? XD I feel like I stole that line from Madi

The Huntress Book I_ The Fallen.png

Snippet No. 1

Aspen’s POV

{From chapter 1}

“I’ll be back next summer.”

Those are the words that Aaron would whisper in my ear, right before he left to go back to Huntrex Academy, where he was learning to become a Hunter and join the Hunt.

I cherished the summertime, as a child. I would spend my days playing with him, stargazing with him. It was the time that I could spend with my favorite person in the world: my big brother. 

But one year he couldn’t keep that promise.

I remember the day it happened. The day we got the news. Those memories I tried to forget, but they haunt me. I can’t dream without it turning in to that scene. It makes me shudder to think about. 

But I’ll tell you. Just this once.

I was nine. That’s the one cold-hard fact. The complete truth. The rest is a haze. I’m not really sure what happened, but my nightmares and visions remind me if it constantly. 

I was just in my bedroom. Minding my own business. I wasn’t going anything but lying on my bed and missing Aaron when I heard a cry.

Hopping off my bed, I ran down the hall, towards the cry. The sound is a ghost of the past coming back to haunt me every waking–and sleeping–moment. I saw Mother crouched on the floor. 

“I lost Jacob. I can’t lose you too.”

At the sound of my father’s name, I questioned, “Lost who?” My dad was long dead, but Mother always talked about him fondly. Sometimes I feel as if I actually knew him, she described him so clearly. I can’t really miss him, though. I didn’t really know him.

Silently sobbing, Mother handed me a letter. With a black seal. I shrieked. That could only mean one thing.

Death. 

Shaking, I cut the black wax with a knife I found lying on the kitchen table. I unfolded the parchment. 

Dear Mrs. Wither,

We are terribly sorry to inform you that last night, something terrible occurred. Aaron Maximus Wither, Third Year, Level Three, is–

I couldn’t bear to read any longer.  A wail, worse than Mother’s, erupted from my lips. I dropped the letter in shock. 

No. 

No.

He can’t be.

The funeral I hardly remember. All I remember is some official–looking person from Huntrex carrying a casket–carrying Aaron–in to the woods where Aaron and I had played often. I had suggested that spot. Those were the only two words I spoke between his death and the funeral. Then he said words, and now somehow I have a scar. It’s on my left cheek, a huge slash that I have no idea what was from. All I know is I’m a scarred girl–both on the inside and out.

I don’t want to talk about it anymore.

People say I’m crazy. People say I’m delusional. I’ve been taken to so may doctors who have labeled me as “a chord away from insane.” People look down upon me, me with my “mental problems”. They say I need to let go. I need to forget. He’s gone. Forever. And there’s no way to bring him back. 

Or was there?

Snippet No. 2

Marc’s POV

Where is that name from? The question makes my head hurt. The name seems so familiar, but I just can’t remember why. The first name is a ghost of a memory, a small trace of a forgotten event that occurred long ago that clung on to my memory, but the last name is so familiar it’s intimidating. Wither, Wither, Wither, I chant silently to myself, tuning out Twilight’s lecturing. Wither, Wither, Wither. One small word can cause a lot of trouble. 

“Marc? Marc? Hellllooooo?” 

“Oh, sorry,” I say, snapping to attention. “What were you saying?”

“I was saying,” Twilight emphasizes the word mockingly, “that I wanted to know some of your strategies for getting students to pay attention. Very ironic, huh, Marc?” I blush. 

“Well,” I struggle to come up with a good answer. I haven’t taught anything before. “I try to make sure the students know that there will be consequences if they don’t behave, and quiz them constantly so you know their progress and how much they have been paying attention to.”

“Very good,” Twilight nods approvingly. “I should imply those to the meetings, yes?” Everyone laughs. I stare down at the desk, embarrassed. I make a mental note to pay very close attention from now on. Soon, the “staff training session & meeting” is over. Everyone rushes out of the conference room, probably to begin setting up their classrooms before the term starts. 

But just as I am about to leave, I hear Twilight call, “Wait.”

I turn around, nervous. Was he going to fire me for not paying attention?

“Yes, sir?” I squeak nervously. I fiddle with the cuff of my sleeve, a habit I do when I’m nervous. 

“You have potential,” he says. I relax a bit. “I can tell you are going to be a very good teacher.”

“Thank you?” I reply, unsure why he would pull me over just to compliment me. 

“But,” I knew there was a catch. “I think that you aren’t aware of the dangers that lay ahead. You’re one of the few teachers who hasn’t served in the Huntrex, and the only one who hasn’t attended this school their self. The Order could bomb this place and wipe out hundreds of our soldiers-in-training, plus the entire future of the Huntrex. I repeat what I said earlier–you CANNOT let down your guard. Ever.”

“Yes, sir.” I nod. He was freaking me out. 

He sits back down in his chair, paying to attention to me anymore. Evidently, this little talk is over. 

And last but not least, snippet No. 3!

Aspen’s POV

I take my sword out, pointing it towards the shadow. No. It can’t be. He was dead long ago. 

“Who are you?” I ask the shadow. “Show yourself.”

“I’m afraid I can’t do that, dear,” the voice says in a haughty, mocking tone, a tone I know Aaron would never use, ever.  

Then, everything starts to swirl around me. Reality is a hazy infinity, with no designated beginning or end. I feel like a strong hand is pushing against my lungs and squeezing my throat tight. I gasp for air, begging for this moment to be over…

Then everything went dark. 

Thank you so much for reading, marshmallow! Merry Christmas! Wait is it too early to ssatrt saying that

Most Writerly,

Emmie

P.S. Hopefully I’ll be posting a more in-depth NaNo recap on TRW tomorow!

DIY No-Sew Dolloween StarWars Costume!

Hello, Marshmallows!

 

 

tenor1

 

Halloween is right around the corner! That’s crazy. I literally only have one piece of my costume ready, and that’s still shipping. TELL THAT UNICORN HEADBAND TO HURRY UP. Well, not only does Halloween mean getting your costume ready, but it also mean’s getting your dolls’ costume ready! And we’re here to help with that, so enjoy this tutorial!

cropped-american-girl-w-2.png

 

For this craft, you will need:

  • A thin wooden dowel
  • Black duct tape
  • Sharpie
  • Your doll
  • Blue duct tape, red duct tape, etc.
  • A brown or black infant shirt (12 or 11 months)
  • Scissors
  • Doll boots
  • Printer (doesn’t have to be colored)
  • Black embroidery floss
  • Tape

 

cropped-american-girl-w-2.png

The Lightsaber:

IMG_1623

Step 1: Mark where you want to cut your dowel.

IMG_1624.JPG

Step 2: Snap your dowel, using your mark as a guideline. Don’t worry about making the edge look neat; we’ll be covering that up in the next step.

IMG_1628.JPG

Step 3: Now, cover the uneven end of the dowel with black duct tape. This will be your handle.

IMG_1629.JPG

Step 4: Next, color the uncovered part of the dowel red (for the Dark Side) or green, blue, or purple (for the Light Side).

IMG_1630.JPG

Step 5: Cut small pieces of colorful duct tape and stick it on your “handle” for buttons. You don’t need a terrible amount of these. Just an on/off switch can do it’s justice.

And there’s your lightsaber!

AMERICAN GIRL W-2

The Robe:

IMG_1631.JPG

Step 1: Get your infant tee shirt out. Use brown for a Jedi and black for Darth Vader. Mine is from Garanamals, which is available at Walmart or Amazon.

IMG_1632

Step 2: Slip it on your doll and pin where it’s needed.

If you are making a Jedi, then you’re done! But if you’re making Darth Vader, carry on to the next step…

AMERICAN GIRL W-2

IMG_1634.JPG

 

Step 1: Print out a picture of Darth Vader. Make sure to size it down in a Word program before printing so it fits your doll’s head. (I printed a coloring sheet because I didn’t want to waste ink.)

IMG_1635.JPG

Step 2: Now, cut it out. If you colored it, make sure to layer a few pieces of paper on the back so it doesn’t bleed on your doll’s face.

IMG_1636.JPG

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3: Make sure it fits on your doll’s face before continuing to any of the next steps.

IMG_1637.JPG

Step 4: Punch two holes on the sides of your mask.

IMG_1638.JPG

Step 5: Wrap a piece of embroidery thread (or, if you don’t have embroidery thread, you can use floss). Now, cut at the very end.

IMG_1639.JPG

Step 6: Measure your embroidery floss. If you are doing this to multiple dolls, make sure to measure each one, because the hairstyle may vary the size. Now, cut your floss a little more than three quarters. So, because mine was about 11 inches, I cut it at 9.

IMG_1640.JPG

Step 7: Place two strips of tape on each hole. Make sure you taped in the front.

IMG_1641.JPG

Step 8: Put the embroidery floss in the back of the taped holes. I know that doesn’t’t really make sense, but if you look at the picture you’ll get it.

IMG_1642

Step 9: Just slip it on your doll, and you’re done!

I’m back.

We’re Redoing Our Site Design?

I feel like I was on a blogging slump this September. My posts didn’t seem as good quality, I wasn’t very motivated to post, i was slow on replying to comments… thus I did not exceed my goal of 20 posts. What was I thinking

October Goal: 12 posts!

NTTM

Aaaannnnd now, Ladies and Gentlemen, it is time for…

EVENTS

My birthday! I’M GONNA BE TEN IN TEN DAYS. SO I’LL BE TEN ON THE TENTH DAY OF THE TENTH MONTH. *Struts around in all my almost-tweeness* And now all my bios can say “Tween Christian blogger” instead of “nine-year-old Texan and daughter of the One True King” and people won’t say “Oh you’re such a great writer for your age” LIKE SRSLY JUST CUZ YOUR BIO SAYS TWEEN DOES’NT MEAN YOU’RE STILL NOT ONE YEAR OLDER THAN ME and you get to pretend your twelve. *Pouts* *Cheers up because self will be the one depressing nine year olds with “compliments” in ten days*

Lexi’s Birthday! I got Lexi for my 7th birthday so we are twins! *Poses* *Drops Lexi because self is trying to write post* *Knows self should pick her up* *Continues typing*

DOLLAWEEN DUH. This is the first time I will be able to do dollaween with my dolls–I didn’t have this blog at halloween last year! I have most of the costumes done–Izzy will be a princess, Lissie a cowgirl, Alexandra a Forest Nymph, Jade a zombie ballerina, and Maryellen will be a Wizard, and Z will–wait, who’s Z? I only have five dolls! Not 6! Totally not getting another for my birthday! Heh! Heh! Heh… *Runs*

Isabel’s Virtual Birthday Party!

Sorry this post is… a few hours late! 

You take a deep breath as you knock on the door. A cheerful Felicity doll opens it for you. 


“Hello! I expect you’re here for Isabel’s party?” You nod.


“Thanks for coming!” She then explains what happened that morning.

“Maryellen woke up early and then shook us awake.


“We then realized it was Isabel’s birthday, and we scurried off to make her breakfast in bed!


“Sounds like an interesting morning!” You chuckle as you follow her in to a dollhouse.


Wow, you think as you veiw the decor. Everyone is wearing fashionable clothing.


“Hi, I’m Maryellen. Don’t call me cute, my outfit is hideous and I only wore it cause izzy made me. Which outfit would you like?” You point to the one you want (tell me wich one you picked in the comments!) and pull it on.

Then you have a fashion show! You and All the dolls get to walk across the runway and showcase your outfits.


Then you have cake and all sing!

Did you have fun? Which outfit did you choose?
