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…

A Surprise for Elizabeth

Yes, I know I haven't posted in five whole days. And no, I'm not quitting! I love this blog too much to stop!
I'll explain: There's a surprise I working on for everyone called Camp Dolls N' All that I've been spending the last three days on... and the two days before that I was at an expo that was all day. Now that was exhaustingly fun!
But that's no excuse, especially since I still have like, five unposted folders of pictures!
And so here you go, a surprise I finished two weeks ago for Elizabeth in the form of a photoshoot!

My wonderful grandmother helped me make this dress from an old Pleasant Company Samantha dress pattern.

I really like all the lace!

Isn't Elizabeth just gorgeous?

(sorry about all the shadows, remind me not to do it at that time of day... whenever that was!)

I love her hair French braided! Did you notice the matching hair ribbons?

The dress is made of this beautiful pink fabric with little white dots. There's sleeve ruffles, as well as a collar and the velvet ribbon adds a sweet touch!

I really, really like this one too!

Miss Elizabeth Faith Cole...


I'm thinking about changing her middle name: Renee, Lynne, Bridgette... which do you like the best? Plus, do you have any other suggestions?
Faith just isn't my favorite as her middle name even though I love the name in itself!

Plus, when we went to the American Girl Boutique, I brought Elizabeth to compare with Samantha's Beforever meet outfit! So here are some bonus pictures!

Both dresses have lace collars, though Elizabeth's has shoulder ruffles and Samantha's has lace at the bottom.

And they have a velvet ribbon at the waist!

They both have pink fabric with white dots, even though Elizabeth's has littler dots.

I hope you enjoyed these!


  1. Your dress looks fabulous! A good replication of Samantha's. Great photo shoot; I can't pick a favorite. As for middle name...I like Renee best. Good flow - Elizabeth Renee Cole.

  2. Thanks! I wasn't planning on trying to replicate Samantha's at first, but then I realized how cute the ribbon was and it just so happened that my grandmother had some! I like Renee too!

  3. That is such a beautiful dress! It looks great on Elizabeth! I like Lynne best, but it's ultimately up to you. (If you haven't decided already. :P)

    1. Thanks! I'm really thankful that I was able to spend time with my grandma and she helped me! I'm still trying to figure out which one I like best!
