Old Dolls Need Attention, Too!

Hi everyone!
It's so easy to give all of your attention to your newest doll, the one with the glorious hair, porcelain skin (sometimes literally porcelain!;D), and overwhelming beauty, but it's harder to make sure that all of your old dolls get just as much attention as your new dolls. I am here to give one of my older dolls a photoshoot and a much needed one at that! Before I got her all done up, she had been in the same outfit she had been since before Christmas. Yeah. I'm bad.:(

I really liked being able to get some good pictures of Nikki!:) She's such a pretty doll. Which doll of yours doesn't get enough attention? If you have one, get her dressed up and do her hair and, if you have a blog, star her in a photoshoot!:)

Who is This?! {Part 2}

Hello everyone! Today I have the long awaited post, part two of Who is This?!  I am so excited! Now, if anyone guessed the doll right, (I'm not saying if anyone did or didn't.) They will get a shout-out at the end of the post. Without further ado, I present to you part two of Who is This?!
(From Samantha's POV)
All of us dolls waited patiently (well some impatiently.) while Bella came in.
She slowly stared to open up the box.
There was a tiny crack, but we could not see anything yet.
There, in the box was our new sister Kaya,
She sat up. "Hello. My name is Kaya."
I went first and greeted our new sister. "Hello Kaya! I'm Samantha."
Kaya smiled. "I like your accent Samantha."
"Thank you!" I replied. Everyone loves my British accent. :)
Saige went next. "Yo Kaya! What's up? High five?"
Kaya looked down and mumbled. "I don't not know what high five is."
Saige just said, "Oh," really quietly and walked away.
At last it was Katrina's turn. "Hi Kaya! I'm Katrina! I'm so happy to meet you! Hug?" 
Kaya smiled the most she ever smiled. "I know what hugs are!" as she gave Katrina a hug.
Shout out to.......
No one! 
Thank you everyone to guessing, but no one guessed right! I read every comment and said, "It's so fun to see what people are guessing. No one has gotten it right yet!"
So yes, Kaya is the new doll. 
I really want to know what your reactions where! Comment below what your reaction was!
Have you ever gotten a new doll and no one guessed who is was?
Today is Easter! I wanted to talk a little about Easter. Now a days, people dye eggs, hunt for eggs, and get presents from the Easter bunny. Why do people think Easter is all that? Easter is a time of celebrating. Our Savior, Jesus Christ, died on a cross for our sins! Death on a cross was the worst way to die. It was slow, painful, and for criminals. You might be saying, "I thought Jesus was perfect. Why did he die on the cross?" Well, let me tell you. He died on that cross for you! Your sins can be taken away if you just believe.
As Christians, I think we focus on the cross too much. Yes, the cross is important, but I haven't gotten to the best part.
After three days of being died; Jesus rose from the dead! He conquered sin and death. I think as Christians we should be focusing on His rising from the dead and not as much on the cross and Christmas. It seems like we focus more on Christmas then we do on Easter. Easter is soo much important! Jesus died for everyone! 
When I was hanging up laundry one day, it hit me. Jesus bore the pain of the cross for you and me. He loves us that much!
Just imagine. You were convicted of a crime. You sentence is death. But, a stranger comes along. He is willing to take the punishment for you and save you. That stranger is our Lord Jesus Christ.
He is risen!
(If you have any questions, feel free to ask me. :) )

Cora's Transformation + Photoshoot

Hey everyone! 

Last month I sent my doll Cora, who is a renamed Caroline, to Valerie from Lovelivautum Doll Hospital to be re-wigged with an original Caroline wig.

The reason for sending her to Valerie's doll hospital for a new Caroline wig is because after having Cora for about 1 1/2 years and her also being my first long, curly, haired doll, it suffered a lot of less-than-great styling as I learned how to best manage it. 

As an idea of how sorry the condition was, here's a photo of her hair before she went to Valerie for her new wig:

Yes, that's really how bad it was--poor Cora! :( 

So, I sent her off to Lovelivautum American Girl Doll Hospital with a fresh wig and within just a few weeks Cora was back on her way home!

Valerie did an amazing job attaching the new wig and even re-curled her hair for me. :) 

I would definitely recommend checking out Lovelivautum American Girl Doll Hospital for your doll repair needs--she is super helpful and was great to work with :) 

**Just to let you know, this post was not sponsored at all by Valerie--this is all my own opinion of her services :) **

So, after having Cora back for quite a while, I decided I should probably finally take her out for a photoshoot ;) 

Here's the photos:


I hope you enjoyed the photos! Have a great day.

Who is This?! {Part 1}

Hello guys! Sorry this isn't posted sooner. I first couldn't find the camera cord, then my computer was freezing up, and then I had to reboot it. But here I am with a super exciting post. Heh heh. Enjoy!
Saige and Samantha were taking to each other when Katrina came up to them. Samantha kept saying "Yes! It's true!" 
While Saige was like, "No! I don't believe it!"
"Ahem." Katrina said. Samantha and Saige both stopped talking and looked at Katrina.
"Yes Katrina?" Samantha asked.
"Um," replied Katrina. "What are you guys talking about?"
Samantha jumped up and down excitingly. "Well, we have a new sister!!"
"What?!" Katrina couldn't believe her ears. She thought that she was going to be the newest doll forever. "Where?" she asked. 
"This way!" declared Samantha.
The three dolls walked down to the bedroom where the new sister was.
When they got there; there was a box. "Let's open it!" yelled Katrina.
"Please Samantha?" asked Saige. "Can we please open it?"
Samantha shook her head. "Only if Bella says we can."
The girls stared at the box. Who could it be?!
Yes, I kind of got a new doll! Now, let me explain. I didn't explain much about my trip to Arizona, but my Grandma was sick and dying. She unfortunately passed away. :'( When we were leaving AZ, my Grandpa somehow gave my parents a doll that was my Grandma's. He was thinking that I would get it because he knows I have a doll blog, but if my sisters want it they get first dibs. So, I don't know if the doll is actually going to mine or not. 
Comment below which doll you think it is!!
