That’s right, I’m finally really back! We flew to Denver on July 22 to stay with family then Megan and I flew to San Jose, CA to go to a conference for a few days then we went back to Denver and then back to Virginia. It was a fantastic trip but it took me longer to get back in the groove when I got home than I expected.

So, while we were in California at the conference I got to meet the creator and team behind a new photo editing program that I really like. It is called Canva and I used it to create that image. Fun! So picture one was at the Goldiblox event – and I love the concept behind their toys “There’s nothing wrong with being a princess, because they can build castles, too!” Photo 2 is a fun selfie with me and long time Doll Diaries friend Ana P. of Bonggamom. Then you see me, Guy Kawasaki (rep for Canva) and Megan posing at the Canva booth after getting lots of information about this cool program, and finally, back in Colorado, a photo from the Garden of the Gods.

I am so glad to see Jen and Zoey from AGDollPlay are posting again and this week they have a recipe for Lanie’s Favorite Muffins that would be perfect for breakfast this weekend. Go check it out.

Dolls on a Dime had a dream come true when she was able to add this stunning Anne of Green Gables doll to her collection. She doesn’t have details about the doll, other than it came from her late Grandmother’s collection, but I just thought she was so beautiful, I had to share it with you.

The Toy Box Philosopher has put together the most comprehensive guide to the 18″ My Twinn face moulds I have seen anywhere!!! If you are a My Twinn fan or are considering adding a My Twinn doll to your collection, this post is a MUST READ.  I think the Madison face sculpt is my favorite (Emily’s doll on the top row with shoulder length red hair) and I’m pretty sure the one we have is the Allison sculpt.

Pretty Lily always has such beautiful photos and her dolls are having a great day at the beach! Can I go to the beach too?

Those are my picks for this week. I feel like I am almost caught up after being gone, but I still have two weeks of Camp Memories to share and have a few new giveaways that were supposed to go up last week but didn’t.   There will be Sunday Showcase tomorrow so send those photos in today!
