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…

Save Our Shelter: Dashed Dreams, Part 2

Elly gasped in disbelief.
Ashlynne nodded sadly.
"The shelter needs a new building both for stability and for space, and with the increase of all the animals that we've been rescuing, we need more bedding, food, and pretty much more of everything. We just don't have the funds to keep going." she explained.
"Surely there's a way to keep this place alive," Elly protested, tears threatening to fall. What could she do to save the shelter? More importantly, what would she do without the shelter? And what about the animals?
"I've tried," Ashlynne admitted, her own lashes wet with tears. "Believe me, I've tried. This has been my dream ever since middle school. When I graduated two years ago, I finally found this place and opened it. I never thought that we'd have to shut down so soon."
"Ashlynne," Madi said thoughtfully. "What if we raised the money?"
"Then by all means, we could stay. But even to stay going for now, we'd need around $500,000. That way we could actually feed the animals, not get in trouble with the government, and rent a hazard-free building." Ashlynne said.
"Whoa..." Katie gulped.
Elly turned to them.
"We can at least try," she said boldly. "It'd never hurt to try."
"I'm all for it," Ashlynne put in. "But..."
"When there's a will, there's a way." Elly stated confidently.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
As soon as they got home, Elly gathered her sisters.
"The shelter is closing and we need to save it." Elly stood before the assembly of her sisters, who just stood there.
"Okay..." Julie seemed skeptical.
"What do we do?" Josie asked.
"Raise around $500,000." she replied.
Julie whistled. "No. Way."
"I don't think we can do this," Amy whispered.
"We can." Madi said confidently.
Katie went up by Elly and hugged her.
"All fundraisers start somewhere. Let's start here, and now."
"Thanks, sis," Elly whispered.
"We reconvene on the hour!" Madi announced. "Bring your ideas with you!"


  1. Oh my goodness, YAY! It's finally here! They better save the shelter or else I'll...XD XD
    But this series is absolutely fabulous so far! Keep up the good work!

    1. Yes... well, it's short, but I figured this one was going to be the most boring out of all of them anyways, soooo... :D But then again, it makes it not a very good excuse that I was working on this one, eh?

  2. Very interesting story! While reading I was reminded of theanimalrescuesite's shelter challenge. They have an annual contest for people to nominate and vote on the shelter that needs the most help or is most deserving help.
