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…

Here it is!

The somewhat long awaited (two days!) post: the dolls packed shoeboxes!
You should be glad that out of the 75 that I took in less that an hour, I'm only pos ting 27 (otherwise you'd be asleep by now!)!
Hey, and don't forget that it's National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes!

Julie and her silver shoebox!

Elizabeth had fun packing hers!

My trio of shoebox packers!

And can you guess what the background is?! A wall of OCC shoeboxes!


(we were actually taking the shoeboxes to church to pack at a party, but since they were so beautifully stacked up, I couldn't help but use them for the perfect background!)

I made Elly's skirt and Julie's skirt, and then layered Katie's tops for a new look!

My little brother made the cross in the background!

Somebody started getting silly..

Keep Calm and Pack A Shoebox

The Leaning Tower of Shoeboxes

"Which do you think is prettier?"

Giving to others is always so much fun!

See the matching logo?

Thanks for looking through all of those! Did you like any in particular? It's funny, when I asked for ya'll to give your opinion, I stated that the average upload time was 30 minutes a piece that day.. and this morning I figured, 'Why not go ahead and upload some while no one is doing school or using the computer (uploading slows down everyone's Internet connection and frustrates certain people, a.k.a. sisters)?' So I start the uploading, flop onto the couch with my science book and my brother walks in and says, 'Hey, your pictures are done uploading.' I seriously was so shocked- eight in under five minutes! And then... 19 in under ten! Crazy internet... :) Anyways, I also have some of the Ultimate Hide and Seek photos uploaded and you can see some sneak peeks of the beach photoshoots on the 'The Stars' page where I updated the dolls' profiles! Go pack a shoebox!

  1. Ooooh, I LOVE these!! They look fantastic! All the poses and the outfits and the photos... AH! They are amazing!!
    Of course, it's always nearly impossible to pick a favorite. So I picked two! LOL!

    Or three...

    I'll leave it at that. XD Once again, I LOVED the pictures. So cute and amazing and - AH! LOL! :D


  2. I'm really happy that you like them a lot! Thanks so much for your encouragement! I really like that second one too! Picking favorites in pictures is like asking someone to pick a favorite doll (which would be TOTALLY unfair to the rest of them. At least if you pick three, some won't feel left out :D)

    1. Aw, you're welcome! And LOL, I know, right?! :D

  3. First, i love the new font for your blog. So much easier to read.
    Second, this is a great photo shoot. The Background is so festive and showcases a great cause.
    Finally, the photos of Elizabeth are my favorites.

    1. Oh, good! Madison helped give me ideas, because I wasn't sure about the font, but I'm glad you like this font! Thanks! I really got into the Christmas spirit with all the red and green! I'm glad you like Elizabeth's pictures- did you recognize her ring from her birthday party?! :)

  4. These pictures are so fun! So, how may shoeboxes did your church pack? My family and I packed 15. :)

    1. Thanks! We did 876 as a church - our party was super fun!

  5. Wow, that's awesome! You must have a a pretty large church. :)

    1. Depends on who you're comparing to! We have less than 200 people in our church, and only 70-80 people came to the party, but lots of people helped and donated- even people who didn't come to our church!
