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…

My Wonderful Birthday

Hi there! It's Josie here, since it's my birthday. I asked my sisters for just a nice, calm, relaxing Sunday - no party, no gifts, nothing big or hubbub-ish. They still insisted upon one gift.
Evidently, Grace was in on it too (hence the wrapping paper) and had me over for a baking date while Jules took the others shopping. :)

I love the paper!

Yes, that's me. Bashfully smiling...

I hated ripping it, the paper was so pretty!

My sisters know me all too well. They got a Cranium game that we could all play together! Now we only need one more doll and the teams would be even!

Julie and Amy were on one team (this picture is of them attempting to ahem, figure out the directions)...

And then there was Sam and Katie, and Elly and Madi. And of course, me. :)

It came with a timer...

Game pieces...

And a die!

This is about halfway through the game. It's super fun. You roll the dice, move, and whenever you land on planet cranium, you get to get a card.

You have a teammate do the challenge and make you guess what it is for the charade/acting and the art/sculpting one. Lucky Jules... she got Amy the artist as her partner!

This is Amy doing the one where you have to close your eyes. She said it was something like a blind conture... or something like that.

Here's what hers ended up looking like... any guesses? The clue was 'thing'.

Elly was rolling with laughter when Madi had to spell asparagus backwards.... XD
"S..... U? G.. gus... asparagus.... A-R-A.... aragus....asparagus.... A-S-P?!"
That was a hard one.

For me, it was a factoid. I had to correctly answer the question to move onto the fast track.

Question: What is the largest animal ever to inhabit earth?

That one was extremely easy. I knew it from fifth grade science.
"A blue whale," I stated with confidence. "A human baby can crawl through its blood vessels, and the heart is the size of a VW bug."
"A punch buggy!!" Katie exclaimed.
"Yeah," I replied with a little laugh.

It was quite comical watching Katie do the acting. This one was parachute. Don't ask...
Before that, Jules had done my hair in the gorgeous Irish Luck Braid Hairstyle (tutorial here) that Samantha from AGDollAwesome did! Madi then insisted on taking my picture during... what was it that she called it? Golden hour? Anyways, I think she was more obsessed with the solar flares... or light flares... or sun streaks... or whatever she called them. She was thrilled that she got them naturally.

Evidently, the little light thingies are those green dots. :D

This is the gorgeous hairstyle!

The sky was gorgeous!

Here's another view of the hairstyle. :)

Identical to the one above, in my POV, but Madi said they were different... maybe the size of the dots?

I hope you enjoyed this! Anyways, the first episode of SOS is going to be up this week! Hopefully, it'll be up every one/two weeks depending on the schedule. :) It's an approximate 8-parter. Can't wait to read your comments!

  1. Amazing job on the Irish Luck hairstyle, Josie and Elizabeth looks ADORABLE in it! BTW, is her dress made out of a jean leg? If so, that's adorable and super thrifty, I love it! Hmm, I've never tried Cranium, bu one of my faves is Pictionary. Great post, hope Josie had a good Birthday. How old is she turning?

    1. Thanks! I love it! Yup, it is! :) I love Pictionary too! :D I haven't played it in like, forever though...
