I hope everyone is having a great weekend! We are off for an adventure today, but first, let’s take a look at what everyone’s dolls have been up to this week.

From Linda – To honor our service men and women this Memorial Day, A BIG THANK YOU!!!!!!!

From Fawn – My husband made this playhouse for our grandchildren, but when Marcie, Diana, Lydia and Josey saw it they knew it would make the perfect camp cabin. They can hardly wait for Camp Doll Diaries to begin.

From InfinityAGStudios – Here is a picture of the summer exclusive cabana set at the American Girl Place San Francisco. It is very large and has plenty of room to fit 2 or more dolls. Priced for $68, this set is   very cute and decorative.

From Tony – Mini Elizabeth, wearing Caroline’s dress, is playing with her new Isabelle ballet doll.

From Jo – Julie is enjoying the sunshine and wishing on dandelions. She is wishing the Caroline will join the doll family soon!

A hike in the woods was the perfect photo op. for Pine Valley Girls Club‘s McKenna. She is thrilled about Camp Doll Diaries and used the walk as inspiration for Camp Nature Walks!

From Agnieszka – Lauryce sends you spring greetings!

From Rachel E. – I went to a conference this past week at the Gaylord Hotel and Convention Center at the National Harbor. I simply had to bring Samantha along. Here she is posing with the waterfalls outside the Gaylord.

From jgirldolls – We still had snow at the beginning of May…so Kelsey made the most of it and built a snowman.

From Gabby – My BFF (saige4crafts) just got Isabelle so on our play date my dolls had a surprise party to welcome Isabelle to the family.

From Cordelia – On her way home from dance class, Rose has picked up the mail. Here she is showing Katherine the “Camp Doll Diaries:Save the Date” cards that they have received. Such excitement in the doll room!

From Dzana – Thora (Götz Happy Kidz) enjoying a sunny day at the Mirabell Gardens in Salzburg, Austria.

From Bethany M – This is a picture of my beautiful doll Regan. Many people on Doll Diaries have asked me about what kind of doll she is, so I researched her on the net and found out she is a M.I.I Meritus doll from 1997. Other than that, I don’t know much, so to those of you who know anything about a Meritus 1997 doll with red-orange hair (it used to be very bright), or even anything about the Meritus company, please please please please PLEASE let me know! Do they have a website I can check out? Was Regan a Disney Princess doll, like Ariel or something? I want to know! Thanks so much!

From Shelby-Grace: Samantha is so excited to be working on she and her sisters’ blog, Oh My Dollies!

From Isabella – Emily, kit and isabelle are celebrating that they are getting a new sister next week , addy . They cant wait so they went to the beach. My nana made the bikini and the blue one .

From PaperDollWorld – This week I managed to squeeze in the time to make Viola some clothes and a chaise lounge, yet she insisted on sighing dramatically and bemoaning her lethargy and ennui. I suspect it’s just an Ellowyne thing…

From Pretty Irish AG – For a school project, I am making a box presentation. To help me, I am using Magiclip dolls which were hard/expensive to find ($6.99-$15.99) yikes! Now I need two Anna dolls, three Elsa dolls, acrylic paint and energy. I’m not proud of how Aurora and Belle turned out, but I hope it’s out of the box enough to please my instructor! These are the supporting characters. I hope I can find the leads.

From Meg_DollFaninAfrica – My new doll is helping her sisters pack for camp. Can anyone guess who she is? I will give one clue – she is 18” tall!  Kittywink is sitting in the suitcase like most cats do.

From Abigail (ags139)  – Hello! I wanted to share these great finds that I found at a garage sale. I found Molly’s velvet theater seats for $10 and Samantha’s school desk for $2!

From Ashleigh – On this beautiful First Day of Summer Break, McKenna celebrates by taking some selfies. You can see some other pictures from the shoot on my Instagram page, @lps_splash .

From Juliet – Hello, Doll Diaries! This week, one of my girls went out on a walk with with Clarity’s dog. She had a lot of fun, and I got some great pictures! This one was my favorite 🙂 It’s been super nice for Seattle lately, it was awesome to get some photostories done.
