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…

Camp Dolls N' All, Day 2, Part 4

Wow! I can't believe it's been a week since I posted- like my delay post noted, the weather *glares at sky* has been, er, disagreeable... to say the least. Anyways.... I finally got the rest of Monday's pictures uploaded, so this will actually probably be the very longest day of camp (4 parts?!?!?)! Anyways, enjoy!

Elly's POV, Monday, August 8, 2016

"Now, Elizabeth is going to demonstrate tinikling dancing, from the Philippines." Josie announced, leading the girls to the center where I was standing.

Everything else was a blur. I thought back to when I had gotten my ankle crushed between the bars and it was broken for six weeks.

Katie and Sam volunteered to do the bamboo clicking stuff.

Sam knelt and reached for the sticks.

They were ready- I wasn't.

I took a deep breath and stood to the left of the sticks.

With a smile on my face, I lifted my skirt and started the routine.

Right foot in, left foot out, right foot out, left foot in, I told myself.

Once I got into the rhythm, it was fun. I whirled and danced, swiftly moving my feet in time with the beat of the sticks crashing against each other.

Click, tap-tap, click, tap-tap, click, tap-tap. The bamboo stayed at a steady pace. I swayed up and over the sticks at an advanced rate.

With an added spin and a hop, I jumped back and forth. When I finished, I was exhausted, but everyone clapped.
Next, Noelle did a ballet demonstration.

As the music began playing, she came to life.

She added another pirouette.

Her flexible addition to her dancing was impressive.

As the music tempo sped up, Noelle performed a grand jete,


and finished, with a dramatic flair.
