Happy Birthday, Isabel!

Oh, hello, I didn’t see you there! Right now I am at my Grandmother’s house, sewing…and sewing…and sewing! The visit here is a birthday present from Emmie! (She took me with her)

I’m 13 today, and I got a PHONE, (YASSS FINALLY!) new ballet shoes, and all of this fabric to work with! Alexandra says that I have a makeup kit/jewlry box thing coming in the mail, and it seems like it can’t come fast enough!

(Please excuse the terrible lighting) Do you like this cute pineapple we got from Kroger while grocery shopping? Sure, it’s more practical to just buy the precut chunks, but don’t you think this full one is so summery and aesthetic?

(Ahh, so blurry!) This picture is of me exploring my Grandma’s beautiful backyard. She has a pathway hidden in between the trees, and if you follow it, you’ll reach a bird bath!

Sometimes you’ll spot a cardinal daringly balancing on the edge, but for now you’ll have to do with me. I hope that the 13th year of my life and 3rd year of living with Emmie is going to be absolutely amazing!

I’ve got to go work on a sewing project. I’ll see you later!

5 Things You Never Knew About AGW

Hey, marshmallows! I haven’t posted on here in what feels like forever…I’ve been so busy with Camp NaNoWriMo! I’m having a blast working on my story.

Alright, back to the post. I’m going to be sharing 5 things you never knew about American Girl World that you never wanted to know in the first place.

1. We have 2 unfinished/unposted photostory series

It’s true! You may have heard of Undercover, the series that has no plot and no photos and needs to be rewritten. However, nobody knows about Camp Celestial Falls, the abandoned summer camp series that was plotted and…that’s it.

2. All of my dolls go to an imaginary boarding school called AG Academy

In my photostories / when my sister and I play American Girl Dolls, we pretend that our dolls go to AG Academy, an imaginary boarding school that focuses on a talent (like ballet) and gives a curriculum based on what your talent is (aka my dream school).

3. Ashton was named after a character in my book

Ashton’s namesake is the can’t-say-what-his-character-role-is-for-the-sake-of-sparing-you from-spoilers from my book, The Huntress! The only thing left to make him exactly like Ash Wolfe is eye-swapping his eyes to be brown…

4. I’ve had 9 signoffs

I keep changing them, (I’m very indecisive, okay?) resulting in a grand total of 9 signoffs.

5. AGW was originally on Blogger

Yes, AGW was originally a Blogger blog! I sadly lost the link… When I tried Blogger, I didn’t like how I had to upload every photo to Google photos and then to Blogger, so I switched to WP!

That’s it for today’s post! I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July! I might not be posting very consistently this month due to Camp NaNo.

With love and marshmallows,

Lea’s Golden Hour Adventure {a photoshoot}

Hello, my marshmallows! Welcome back to my blog! Today’s post is going to be an introduction to Lea and her personality, and a photoshoot! (Why do I sound like a YouTuber? It’s annoying.) Lets just…start the post.

Hey guys! I’m Lea. I love adventure and the outdoors! Don’t you just love this location? I’ve always wanted to take pictures here! Lea is so photogenic!

IMG_3748.JPG

Lea is daring and adventurous and loves to try new things. This photo was really hard to get – I tried to balance her, but she kept falling! In the end I held her up, with my hand out of the frame.

IMG_0259.JPG

Her motto is Life begins at the end of your comfort zone, so Lea sometimes lets Isabelle give her makeovers. I’m working on an American Girl Doll removable makeup tutorial! I just love using this technique on my dolls, they look so pretty!

After a bit of tree climbing, it was time to rest on the bench. Lea is ALMOST looking at the camera. ALMOST.

I just love Lea’s outfit and her beautiful hair! I learned how to fishtail braid on it.

Q: What would you do to get a good picture of your doll? A: Climb up a tree, dangle my iPad off a branch, and twist my body weirdly so I can press the shutter button. XD

IMG_3740.JPG

I love how this photo makes it look like it’s nighttime in the background and someone is flashing a light at her.

IMG_3727.JPG

I can’t get over how beautiful this doll is! I have some ideas on how I’m going to incorporate her into Forever Season 2…

IMG_3741.JPG

Speaking of scripts, I’ve decided that my Camp NaNo project is going to be a script for my Christmas Special stop motion! (I plan wayyy ahead XD) If anyone wants to invite me to their cabin, my username is Emmie10.

After a nice evening of exploring, it was time to head home. Lea walked back towards the house as the sun sunk below the horizon and into the lake.

I hope you enjoyed this little photo shoot! Stay tuned for the doll makeup tutorial!

¡Hola, Verano! (Hello, Summer!)

Play this while you read the post — it totally sets the mood!

It’s that time of year – when the birds chirp and sunshine beats down on you as you splash in to the pool, the air filled with laughter as you break through the surface and are enveloped by a body of clear water. (Alright that was a little bit more information then you needed there)

You know how this works if you read our Welcome, Spring post, but for those who are new to AGW, first I’ll list the pros and cons of this spring, then show you my favorite posts of the season, and finally, give you some sneak peaks and #goals for next season. Why is my writing so formal? It’s getting creepy

So, buckle up, marshmallows, ’cause here we go!

Hello From a Hotel!

Hey there, marshmallows! I cringe at the date of my last post…I guess my three or four day hiatus went longer then I planned!

I’m currently hanging out in a hotel room, Bryn Cartelli blasting through my headphones as I type this up on my iPad. 😋 I didn’t bring a doll so I don’t exactly have very many pics… but here’s a picture from ________ county forest park! (I can’t tell you where I am until I get back for safety reasons.)

Isn’t it so pretty? We found this beautiful play structure made completely out of wood that looked like a fort! My sister and I raced up and down the towers and jumped on the bouncy bridge for hours! I felt like a little kid again and this is coming from a ten-year-old XD

The other reason I haven’t been posting very much is recitals! I had so much fun dancing with my friends, it was a great year!

I’m the flyer!

I also wanted to wish my Grandma a happy birthday! I love you so much, GMa! You are so fun to hang out with and you are so great! 😘

Finally, here’s the 2017-18 doll school yearbook pics! (Arggg can’t find Ash’s)

So, I guess that’s it! Hopefully, I’ll be posting the big surprise really soon!
