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…

Friday Night- the Big Surprise

While Elly, Josie, and Katie were on vacation, the others prepped for a big surprise. And then, of course, when they got back, Katie and Josie launched into helping too. As Amy distracted Elly with tea, and Sam took her turn by taking Elizabeth to the local animal shelter, the rest got ready for the big day- Saturday. Friday night arrived, and things weren't even ready then...

"What next, Jules?" Katie inquired, looking at their neatly draped tablecloth.

Julie surveyed the hardly decorated clubhouse.
"Streamers." she decided, and so it was.

Katie draped a pile on the table and eyed the chair Julie was standing on.
"Are you sure that's safe?"
"I'm sure." Julie replied, reaching for the end of the crepe paper.

"Light blue, done!" she declared as she taped up the last strand.

"Hold this, will you?" Julie wove the strands around Katie's arms. "Perfect."
"Do you think it'll work?" Katie questioned.
"I'm positive it will!" Julie assured Katie.

A little while later, they finished the blue streamers.
Behind the Scenes

The long list of 'to do' party prep in my handy notebook always kept nearby for late night inspiration!
The blanket I draped over the clubhouse because of probing baby sister hands!

The party guests- notice anyone in particular?!

Ahem. Yes, everything that I dumped out of the clubhouse. I've still got that to work on!

And the doll room.... kinda messy, but I'll fix it- really!
Next post: the beginning of the big birthday day!
