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 up next? You choose!

Soooo... I have a lot of pictures to choose from.

The only problem is that they take FOREVER to upload. Yesterday, the average upload time was 30 minutes per picture. Crazy, right? Anyways, I want to post only what ya'll want to see! I've got lots of different kinds of posts that I can do, so here's a short list with some pictures - feel free to suggest some!


I haven't actually decided the next doll yet, but it's already round 9!

The Ultimate Hide and Seek

The picture pretty much says it all- Katie convinced Elizabeth and Josie to play a game of hide and seek with her for the sole purpose that I could get pictures (yeah, right!)- what they didn't know was that it was a game of ultimate hide and seek!

Beach Photoshoots

Yes, actually, those were on the beach! My grandmother and I made her dress!
I got tons of pictures on vacation- photoshoots of each of the three that went! They're really pretty, in my opinion!

#ipackedashoebox (doll version)

You might know that my dolls 'packed' shoeboxes from the From a Friend Friday on AmericanGirlFan - there are some really cute ones that I didn't send in because of the limit!
Which of these would you prefer? I'm always indecisive! Hey, and if you haven't already subscribed by entering your email on the right, make sure you do before I send out the winter/Christmas edition of the Dolls N' All Magazine!

  1. Ooh, exciting! And whoa. That's crazy that they take so long to upload!
    I'd always like to do WIAN (if you'd like suggestions, I'd be happy to give you some! GOTYs and Best Friend dolls are always fun, or dolls that aren't as well-know.)
    But GOLLY. That Operation Christmas Child is sooo cute! I think I'd like to see it instead. ;) did you get and make the boxes?

    1. GOTYs are really fun! But it's kinda funny when people try to guess the release date.. :) I'll definitely work on that- first request! The boxes are actually *builds suspense* cream cheese boxes that are wrapped just like any other shoebox! The official looking one, though, is one that came from a thing they did a while back that had prayer and verse cards inside!

  2. I always enjoy WIAN but, I would like to see the Ultimate Hide-And-Seek! Doing photo stories with mini dolls would be fun! How many mini dolls do you have?

    1. I'm glad you like WIAN - I do too! That'll be number 2 on my list then! So far, I have Mini Melody and two tiny Madame Alexander dolls, but I'd like more! Once I get more, I'm DEFINITELY doing mini doll stuff!

  3. I'd like to see any of them, but I think I prefer the Operation Christmas Child pictures.
    And I don't know if this would help, but have you ever tried resizing your photos to a smaller pixel size? I resize mine to 500px wide.

    1. Thanks for your opinion! I'll start on that one soon! I've never tried, why? (I'm just curious!)

  4. I think photos hoots . And photostories .

    1. Coming right up! Beach photoshoots, Elly's birthday and the Ultimate Hide and Seek!

  5. They all sound so amazing!! I'd love to see any of them - but... but... Ultimate Hide and Seek sounds so cool! And the beach photoshoots would be lovely. So would the OCC pictures... LOL! Whatever you decide to post will be awesome!

    P.S. Christian Homeschooler has a great idea! If you resize the pictures to a smaller size they might upload faster.

    1. I'm super excited about all of them! Oh, that makes sense (Christian Homeschooler's idea)! I was trying to figure out why, but that's smart... now... can I do that?! :D

  6. About the resizing, a while back I did a post on resizing photos. Here it is...
