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…

The M&M Show, Episode 4: Chalk One Up!

Welcome back to the M&M Show!
Today, we're outside. Doing what, you ask?

Well... we're just having some fun...

Just doing stuff we've seen other awesome bloggers doing....

Chalk play!

Alright, how about a classic game of twisted hopscotch?
Twisted what-huh?

You'll see. Just give me a second.

I'm still working on it, little Miss Impatient.

And now for some fun squiggles....

Woah! That's cool! So just... follow the numbers, I guess.

Uh-huh. I'll demonstrate. One...

Two.. whoah! Almost lost my balance there. Note to self, don't look around while hopping on one foot.

Ten! Ta-da! Your turn, Madi.

Okay.... *does it* That was easy! I want to make one now.

Okay, so this is how you do it. Ready? Just follow the footsteps.

Hop in the circle...

Hop out and almost do the splits..

Right foot hop in..

And out - oahoo!

And left foot!

And both feet!


That was fun.

Ooh, toeing the line, are you Madi?

Oh, oh, oh! Let's draw a house!

A what? A house? Okay... a square for the house and a triangle for a roof.
No, this is a game that Kit and I used to play at our old house. You draw it kinda like a floor plan.

Okay. Let's do this!

Oh, hello there! I'm your guide, Madi!

Today I'll be showing you the M&M Manor.

Watch out for this step. Here we go, onto the porch.

This is Mia's patio chair, and mine is over at the other end.

Come on inside! Let's head down this hall.

Alright, our first stop is our living room. The door is right here.

Here's an overview.

We've got a nice couch here..

... and a flatscreen TV...

And a coffee table...

... and hot chocolate - the orange cup is mine and the yellow is Mia's.

Okay, moving onto the kitchen!

Stove and oven...


...fridge with the cookie jar on top...

Oh, and this is our table with the stools. Just use your imagination. It's quite fun!

This is my very bad flower...

Okay, let's head down to my room!

Ah, I've got a nice bed with a swirly comforter...

Oh, and this cool yellow bean bag!

Okay, this one takes more imagination, but the square is my chair and the rectangle is an aerial view of my desk.

Here's a nice view of my fuzzy, striped rug.

Oh, hi there Mia! I hope you don't mind we're in your room.

I suppose I don't mind.

This is my toybox for all my dolls and doll things.

A narrow bookshelf..

And my chevron bed!

I also added this ballet barre so I can stretch, just like this!

Come on outside! Hey, Mia, draw a garden.
Um, okay. It's not going to be very good.

Are those Christmas lights?
Ha. ha. ha. They're tomato plants.

Well, I hope you enjoyed our house tour! Oops, I think I got some chalk on me!

So did I. It doesn't matter. How about some chalk art now?
And I am... Mary Poppins!

My nice orange umbrella...

Puffy white clouds in a nice blue sky..

Um, I'm a ballerina on a stage. I guess.

Uh, with a tutu that makes it look like my pants are on fire.

Hey, I added a red curtain for you!

Skateboarding! Woo-hoo!

Like the colors?

A nice walk on a bridge.

Across a valley and river..

Well, that's all for today! Hey, we've got two very exciting announcements this week!
One about the DNA Rewards and one about another competition!
Don't forget to vote for the cutest and loveliest dolls!


  1. Love it! I really like that you drew a house and did a tour :D I like the Mary Poppins picture too :)

    1. Thanks! We had a lot of fun! That was my favorite one too! ~ Mia

  2. The chalk designs were so cool! I actually might do twisted hopscotch with my friends! :D

  3. Chalk art is so cute! I liked how this was a mix between a photo shoot and photo story.
    Ooh DNA rewards? And another competition? This sounds like another exciting week at Dolls N All!


    1. Thanks! It's also extremely fun! Yup - and this is my kind of competition! ~ Madi


  5. That's great! My favorite is the umbrella or Mary Poppins chalk drawing photo. Too cute! The game is very inventive.

    ~ Charlie

  7. That looks like so much fun! I might have to try the twisted hopscotch!

    1. It certainly was! You should, it's fun! ~ Madi

  8. "One that makes me look like my pants are on fire" 😂😂😂😂 OH MY GOODNESS YOU GUYS ARE SO FUNNY! XD AMAZING chalk art, guys. (Also, tell L4TL she worked so hard and did such a good job and the pictures oh my word they are AMAZING :o ;) )

    I love the M&M show! ^.^


    1. XD That was so hysterical, I was laughing so hard that the lines for the red curtain (ahem, it ended up orange. How was I supposed to know it was orange and not red?) were not straight at all. I'll tell her! *shouts to other room* She says thanks.
      Yay! Maybe we'll do extra special episodes even after July. Maybe once a month or so..
      ~ Mia

    2. 😂😂😂LOL XDD

      Ooh, hurray! That would be so cool! :D

  9. SO CUTE! I especially love their little shoes. The m &m hosts are great sidewalk chalk artsists! :D :D
