The Joys of January // Looking Ahead, Issue 1 (VII)

 It's 2018!

*inhales happily* A year of fresh starts. 2017 was pretty good - two new additions to our family, Mia and Kit!
I know this is a 'Looking Ahead', but I want to look back over 2017 briefly and choose my favorite post from each month!

January - The Ice Princess Probably one of my favorite photoshoots EVER.
February - I STILL Love AG And I'm Proud of That
Wow. This one got a LOT of views... and went pretty crazy.
March - Spending a Day in Space
 I loved making this: the foil and improvised spacesuit, the moonsand, the foil landing pad.... the flag... EVERYTHING WAS SO FUN!
April - 6 Tips on How to Be a Doll Celebrity XD XD This one was one of my pet projects. It's like, a sarcastic poke of fun at celebrity stuff.... May - Mia and Star Another photoshoot. How original... June - Adventure in the Attic
This was so much fun to do - it took like, two hours in 100+ degree summer attic weather. *swelters at thought* But it was TOTALLY worth it. :) July - Triple…

Meet Jess!

Meet Jess McConnell, Girl of the Year 2006! This doll is really pretty, and I love her skirt (wish I had one!) and her story.
Isn't she pretty? I really love the whole tropical look, and this doll is really super unique... I think she's the only GOTY who travels to another country besides Grace Thomas (she travels to Paris).  Admire her bright outfit, and her lovely sandals. I think that she has the Asian face mold and I really love those braids! The only other dolls that I can think of on the spot that come in braids are Kirsten, Molly, and Saige (excluding the braided accents that are on Mia, Grace, Kailey and some others). Next is a close up of Jess' face.

I like this picture because you can really see that Asian mold and that lovely braid. I also like her rather side part instead of the ever always middle part on most dolls!
This below photo is of the illustration for the Jess book. I like it, yet I don't. She looks too old to be in fourth grade (which is normally the grades of most of the characters!) but she might pass for being 11. I still like the parrot, however!
Again, I found a real girl who resembles the featured GOTY. This time, meet screen star Bailee Madison!
Okay, doesn't she look a bit like Jess?!?!?! I love those braids- just like Jess, and her hair is even in a side part! And, ironically, she's wearing orange, Jess' signature color! She doesn't look Asian like Jess, but I love those features. Her eye color is the same, and if you look at the illustration, even her eyebrows look similar! Okay, so maybe I am going a bit overboard... :D She has a petit nose and ears however, like the Jess doll... I really love the similarities of Bailee and Jess!

This is one of her now.

Hope you enjoyed this!
