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…

DIY Doll Hammock Tutorial ~ June DOTM ~


​Oh, hi! I didn't see you there. I was just chillin' in this awesome hammock Natalie made me-and today she will be showing you how to make another one! And meanwhile, I just get to hang here in my hammock. Ahhhh........

You Will Need;

  • An old dishtowel that is at least 20'' long. It should also be at least 10'' wide, so your doll doesn't fall off
  • Two 10'' long dowels
  • two old shoelaces, or other strong cording.
  • A needle and thread or a sewing machine (not shown)
  • Your doll (duh! 😜)
You will also need a basic knowledge of sewing and some pins.

Step 1. Lay your doll down in the middle of the dishtowel, and fold over one inch at the top and bottom near her head and feet. Pin.

Step 2. Sew a straight line to secure your fold. Remove the pins as you sew, and try to sew on the hemmed edge of the towel, so it won't fray.

Repeat Step 2. for the other end.

Step 3. Slide your dowels through your casings, and scrunch the towel up around their middles.

Step 4. Loop your shoelaces over the dowels like shown, and tie twice.

Lay your doll down in her new hammock to make sure everything is the right size.

To hang, find a branch sturdy enough to hold your doll, and tie the way you'd tie your sneakers. (which should be easy, 'cause they're shoelaces!)

Ta-Da! Your doll now has her very own hammock! And no one will ever know you made it from a dishtowel!

It must be pretty comfy, because Adalyn has fallen asleep in it!
