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…

What's in a Name?

Round 8 - Who will stay on top?

During our last round, I was surprised by the number of comments so quickly! I leave for a week and end up with six entries! :) That must be a record! Let's review the contestants' answers. First though, I didn't specify how exact the release date had to be.. I was looking for a particular year or month, but since I didn't explain thoroughly, I'm still going to give A Doll's Life a point. Hope ya'll understand!

I have some terrible news... we're running out of dolls with appointed middle names! What do you say about doing dolls without middle names? We still have plenty of ways to score without the middle name!

Anyways, you can probably figure that this is one of my favorites so far. :)

    Thanks for hosting this, L4L! :D I really like these games. And I think that it's fine to do a doll with no middle name! :)
    One suggestion I have would be to put somewhere in your post: "Please answer honestly...cheaters never win, and looking up answers isn't *really* knowing the answer." Or something like that. I don't want to accuse people of looking up answers (if I do, it's only to properly spell a name), but it might be something nice to add. :)
