I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for another week of creativity, doll play and fun! It looks like your dolls had another great week.

From Tony – Kanani is looking forward to taking a break from working at her family’s store, Akina’s Shave Ice and Sweet Treats.

From Sharry – What are these 2 sneaky girls up to? Kerry is babysitting and on the phone w/ her boyfriend, so Julie and Susan are lurking in the hallway, listening in! Shame on you girls! Better not get caught! Wanna see the rest of this story? Go to Julie Newman’s 70s Time Capsule: Kerry Babysits

Kit had a blast at the park with her friends Molly and Saige. After that they enjoyed a nice picnic. From Isabella and Kit

From Anna – Robin tried out a new outfit. It will be really great for the summer months.

From Camille – Its a little bit past Easter but my doll Brooke wanted me to send something in because her birthday is the day before Easter and I forgot to send in a pic of the party on Easter Sunday. Please wish Brooke a happy belated birthday so that she is a little less upset with me. 

From Candy Land – My new dolls that I got at swap meet. I don’t know who the GI Joe is can someone help me with that. The others are Captain Phoebus and Esmeralda (they are McDonald’s toys they are almost the size of Barbies). I also got 2 Barbie McDonald’s toys – one is Rapunzel, the other one is Camp Barbie.

 

From Wendy – I recently bought this retired Just Like You doll #14 from 2006. Her hair was a frizzy mess, limbs were loose, nail polish on her hand, black marks on her legs… I gave her a spa treatment, cleaned her up and tightened her limbs and she’s good as new!!! I named her HOPE because she now has new hope in life.

On Easter Sunnyhappyfarm’s doll Olivia had a photo shoot outside.

From Fawn– April marks the 155th Anniversary of the Pony Express. The Pony Express was a mail service by horseback using a series of relay stations. During its 18 months of operation it reduced the time for messages to travel between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts to about 10 days. From April 1860 to October 1861 it was the most direct means of communication before the telegraph was established. The rider’s badge says “Pony Express Messenger”. Because riding through Indian territory could be dangerous, riders carried a revolver and a Bible. Relay stations were about 10 miles apart, the distance a horse could run at a full gallop before getting fatigued. To learn more visit the Pony Express National Museum website at www.ponyexpress.org/history.

From Descending Sky – London would like to say “Hello” to all the fellow dolls out there.

From Lilly Blossom – This week Elizabeth made a video demonstrating how to make an American Girl Stop Motion (AGSM). Check out her video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EVmA9Y6oN0 .

From Jenny – My daughter and I have been taking old discarded Bratz and Moxie dolls that are destined for the landfill and restoring them to something new and real looking. They are called New Leaf Dolls™ !  Please check out our youtube channel (please subscribe) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCklrm82Kisl8oj6NiaveJHA We have been removing and repainting their faces, sewing and knitting their clothing, restyling their hair to give them a new life, turning over a new leaf! It’s been a lot of fun and a lot of learning for me and my 13 year old daughter! 10% of all proceeds are donated to the St. Joseph’s Indian School.

From Peace – I made this super cute dress for Rebecca’s birthday! And Georgia have her a kindle.
