Happy Mother’s Day! There are so many great photos in my inbox just waiting to be shared this week, so let’s get started!


Dawn says, “Here is a photo of Mini Addy wearing a mob cap that I made 30+ years ago and a pinner apron that I made this week. This is the latest photo for a 365 photo challenge that I’m doing. I’m taking a photo a day of my mini American Girl dolls. I’ve been focusing on one doll each month. Here is a link to my challenge set: http://www.flickr.com/photos/68499916@N00/sets/72157628874396773

Brinley sent in a few photos but this was my favorite.

Maggie threw a great party for Kanani!

From Hayley – “Hi Char, thank you for letting me be in the show case. Here’s a little scene of four of the girls  – from left to right:  Josie (Chrissa ) , Hayden (Lanie ) , Cecile , and Marie (Marie Grace). I wove the bag in the picture and made the necklace that Marie is wearing.”

From Madelon: Lanie holds her Wild Thing stuffed animal in honor of author Maurice Sendak who passed away this past week.

Sherie was the winner of the Matilda doll earlier this spring. She sent in photos of Matilda dressed as a Victorian girl, apparently she couldn’t wait for Amelia! She bought the clothes from eBay, and they fit surprisingly well.

And Sherie also sent in a photo of Zoe, one of the original Karito Kids, the one from NY, wearing last years’ holiday outfit.

Sarah got a new doll this week – #49 (Elsie Abigail Hope) doll she got for her birthday in Marie-Graces Summer Outfit!

Chloe shares a photo of Kanani during her spring photo shoot.

We love seeing what you make for your dolls, adventures they have, and great finds. If you would like to submit your photo for next week’s Sunday Showcase, here are the basics:

  • Email your photo to share@dolldiaries.com (it must be your own photo – do not take photos from someone else’s site and submit them as your own)
  • Put “Reader Photo Submission” in the subject line (I get a ton of email & this will make it easier to sort through)
  • Resize your photos to 540 pixels wide (if you can)
  • Make sure you include a description or caption for your photos
