My absolute FAVORITE doll event of the year is coming up this weekend and unfortunately I will not be there. That is right, I will not be at Toy Fair this year. It makes me so very sad, but with the timing of my move, it just couldn’t happen. Luckily, Laura will be at Toy Fair and so will Ashley from Confessions of a Doll Collector’s Daughter, so we will get some photos and updates from the event. I will also do my best to share any news from the various companies as it comes to me.

It has been one week since we moved and I am still sorting out doll stuff and settling in. I really hope I can take a few hours this weekend to do some crafts and doll photography because it is just so relaxing for me. I really can’t thank my team enough for all the help they have given me with the site. I know we have a few giveaways to close out, things that still need to be shipped (once I figure out what box they landed in) and a few giveaways to photograph and get online, but it will all get done soon enough!

Isn’t Nicole’s owl hat adorable? It is by Angie of Gilly Gals on Etsy and we will be having a giveaway for two more Frozen inspired doll hats by Angie soon!

What do you think of all the new releases from American Girl?

These are some of my favorites from this release. I think the gardening set it adorable – although I already have the gardening set from The Queen’s Treasures. The gazebo is a really nice display piece that I want to see up close. Kit has a chicken!! A chicken – okay, I just might have to get that set just for the chicken. Natalie is in love with the jazz outfit and I have to agree with her – maybe I will have to treat her to that outfit closer to the time of her own dance recital. Kaya and Julie’s Special Edition outfits are fun and it is nice to see Addy getting new items, too.

Thanks again to all our readers for making Doll Diaries such a fun site to be part of!!
