Craft~ How to make a doll shirt!

Hey, guys! Do you want to learn how to make the doll shirt that Ellie is wearing in just 2 easy steps? Well, read on to find out how!

Maryellen wearing a shirt that I made

The supplies that you need to make this craft are:

  • Scissors
  • A clean sock

Step 1:

IMG_0137

Cut the tip off the sock.

Step 2:Β 

IMG_0139

Cut two holes on the side of the socks. I didn’t know that the holes would stretch out, so I made big ones. That’s why Ellie’s shirt looks a bit awkward, and weird. πŸ˜‰

Kit wearing a shirt that I made

Here is the final product! Kit hates wearing pink stuff, but this only has a little bit of pink, so she was fine with it. πŸ™‚ Also, one of Kit’s favorite animals is an owl, because her favorite Greek goddess is Athena, and her symbol is an owl. That’s why Kit loves this shirt so much. πŸ™‚

Well, that’s all! By the way, comment down below of you think that I should post all of the shirts that I made using this method. Bye for now! πŸ™‚

A Photoshoot with Kate

Hey, guys! I decided to do a photoshoot of my favorite doll, Kate. The reason she’s my favorite, is because she was my first 18 inch doll. I got her when I was about 2 years old. We have a long history together. When I ripped her out of the box on Christmas morning, I was delighted. I grabbed her and started to play with her. Everyday when I would go to my babysitter’s house, I would bring Kate. One time my Grandma and I were going to a grocery store, and I insisted on bringing Kate with me in a stroller. But then, a horrible thing happened. I was playing with Kate at my babysitter’s hose, and her arm ripped out. My babysitter’s brother did his best to fix her up. Her arm was still loose, but I didn’t care. I would still play with her, and seat her on the piano chair at dinner and I would give her real food to “eat”. Fast forward to 2014. I was changing her outfit, when…. Her arm got ripped out again. I ran down stairs, crying. My mom’s friend’s boyfriend was really good at fixing stuff, so he did his best to fix her. He explained to me that The little ball inside her arm broke, so that is why her arm got ripped out. He said that all you could do was to make a new ball, but he would have to take medal and shape it into a ball shape, but he couldn’t do that. He did his best to fix her up, and he told me that her arm would fall out a couple of times, but I could just pop it back in. So to this day, I do just that. πŸ™‚ But anyways, onto the photoshoot.

I love how Kate looks like in Caroline’s meet dress. That’s why Kate wears it a lot of the time. πŸ˜›

IMG_0007

I love taking pictures of doll feet. πŸ˜‰

IMG_0008

And doll hands. πŸ™‚

IMG_0009

IMG_0011

I took those two pictures separately. πŸ™‚

IMG_0012

Fun Fact: I cut Kate’s bangs off when I was 3 years old. I had an obsession with cutting hair, so most of my Barbies are, well, you know… bald.

IMG_0013

I kinda like this picture! πŸ™‚

…BUT I LOVE THIS ONE!!!! This is definitely her new profile pic!

Well, that’s all! But before I go, could you tell me what’s wrong with my WordPress account? Whenever I delete pictures, They show up again the next day. But anyways, bye for now! πŸ™‚

The New Sister~ Part 2

Told in Kit’s POV

IMG_9984

Everyone was in the main bedroom, waiting for Maryellen. After a few seconds of silence, there were murmurs. “She’s here!” “Look, she a foot away from us!” Everyone was excited, except for me. I should’ve felt guilty, but I didn’t.

IMG_9985

“Hello, your mother said this was my new home, right up here. Am I right?” Said Maryellen.

IMG_9986

“Yes, you are! Welcome, Maryellen, to your new home. We are all your sisters!” Said Ruthie, with an excited smile on her face.

IMG_9987

Grace skipped over to Maryellen. “Hi! My name’s Grace! I got a present for you, I hope you like it!”

IMG_9992

She handed Maryellen a paint set. “I’ve heard you are an Artist, so I got you this paint set!” Said Grace.

IMG_9993

“Thank you! I love it!” Said Maryellen happily.

IMG_9989

Then Kate ran up to Maryellen, and handed her a purse. “I originally sewed a purse for you, but then Coconut chewed it up, so I ran into the Springfield boutique, and got you this purse this morning!” Said Kate.IMG_9990

“Thank you! I love it!” Said Maryellen. “I love to sew, so I want to be a fashion designer and an Artist!” Said Maryellen, smiling at her. But then, everyone pushed Kate to the side, trying to give Maryellen their present.

IMG_9994

“Ok, everyone, put your presents in a pile over here and you can tell Maryellen what you gave her later.” Said Sienna. Everyone dropped their presents in a pile, except for me.

IMG_9996

Sienna looked at me with a frown. “Why didn’t you give her a present?” She said. I couldn’t stand it anymore. I ran like a baby. I ran like a coward, to the room that I had to share with Ruthie, and now, Maryellen.

IMG_9997

I sobbed into my pillow, so that my crying would be muffled, so that no one could hear me crying. I couldn’t let Nancy hear me cry. It would we embarrassing.

IMG_9999

Maryellen walked into the room. “Are you all right?” She asked with concern in her eyes. I didn’t answer. “Come on, let’s go play! Kate and Caroline are waiting for you to play tag with them!” I ignored her, just kept on crying. Then, a big sob escaped the pillow. “Are you all right?” Asked Maryellen.

IMG_0001

Since I knew that Maryellen wouldn’t stop bugging me, I finally turned around and brushed my tears away. “What happened?” Maryellen asked. “Sometimes, if you tell someone what’s on your mind, then you’ll feel much better.” She said. Finally, I confessed. “I thought it was unfair that you weren’t a surprise sister. I was, so I didn’t get any presents besides a laptop that I have to share with Sienna, and a Bedroom that only I and Ruthie, and now you live in.” I said. “I was sorta jealous that you got to get a lot of wonderful presents, while I get none.” Maryellen smiled at me. It’s alright, I’ll share my present’s with you!” She said. “It’s all right.” I answered. “It wouldn’t seem right, since we’re not even friends.” But then, a smile spread onto her face. ” I have an idea.” She said. “Since you seem lonely and everyone already has a best friend, Β wouldΒ you like to be my best friend?

IMG_0005

Maryellen grabbed my hand, and looked at me, with a begging look in her eyes. “Yes, I will.” I said, before even thinking. So in that split of a second, my life changed. I finally had a real best friend who didn’t already have another best friend like Kate. Also, now my new best friend of a girly-girl, which I thought would never happen because I was a tomboy. “Wait… before we go join our sisters…” Her voice trailed off. “Please call me Ellie. Everyone called me that, back at the American girl orphanage. I want everyone Β to call me that here, too. Especially you.” Said Maryellen. I nodded my head, and we took each others hand, and skipped off to the room next door, where the party was starting. I smiled happily, now that I had a new best friend. No, a best friend forever.

Hey, guys! So, how did you like it? Did you expect Kit to become best friends with a girly-girl? I just realized something, though. You know how in the book Maryellen loves to draw? Well, when I ordered Maryellen I was thinking of what I should make her hobbies be, and what nickname she should have. I decide to make her love to Sew, but I also decide to make her the artist of the family. The weird thing is that in the book, Maryellen loves to draw too, and I decided to make My Maryellen have that Hobby too. Also, I was thinking of nicknames because Maryellen is a long name, dontcha think? πŸ™‚ So I decide to Make her nickname Ellie, and in the book, her nickname is Ellie! I guess I’m a psychic, huh? πŸ˜‰ Well, bye for now! πŸ™‚

Looking back~ Old Pictures Of My Dolls That I Took

Hey, guys! I will post the next part of the new sister soon. I would’ve today, but there’s a guest coming over tonight, and I had to keep the attic nice and clean, because that’s where the guest is going to stay tonight (the attic is the guest room and where the TV is, and where I keep most of my toys including my AG dolls). But anyways, onto the post. Today we’ll be looking at the bad pictures that I used to make when I was younger with a trashy camera that I once thought took the best pictures ever. (It didn’t even have a focus, what was I thinking when I was a little kid?)

First, here is a terrible picture of Ruthie.

This picture was taken recently, sometime in March, 2015. By then, I was begging my parents for a better camera because mine was awful. My dad decided to order a better version of his camera, and he gave me his old one, which woeks SUPER well!

Hello, Marie-Grace! Watcha winking at?

Gosh, this picture looks so bad…

Good night, Kate! Wait… it’s in the middle of the day? My bad.

This picture was when I was trying to do a stopmotion. It ended up being an old boring slideshow.

I’m sorry Caroline, but what Happened to your Face? I can’t seem to see it.

This one might be the best picture so far… It looks way better then the ones before it!

I am so sorry Caroline, that I made you look hideous in this picture.

Shopping for pant’s huh? Nice pants, by the way.

Well, that’s all! Bye for now! πŸ™‚

The New Sister~Part 1

Told from Kit’s POV

IMG_9935

I woke up to lot’s of laughing, and whispers of excitement. I rolled over in bed, trying to fall back asleep. I wanted to sleep through this day, I wanted to skip it, because today was going o be the worst day of my life.

IMG_9936

Ruthie walked into our room. “You’re finally awake!” She said. “Maryellen’s coming in three hours, so you gotta get out of bed and get ready for her to come!”

IMG_9937

I sat up in bed, now alert. “In three hours? You mean it’s only 10:00? I could’ve slept more!” I said, now in an extremely bad mood. “Why do I have to get up this early?” Ruthie rolled her eyes, and walked out of the room.

IMG_9938

I trudged out of bed, grumbling and wondering why we had to get a new sister already.

IMG_9940

I glanced at the shelf that Caroline had built into Maryellen’s bed, with a lot of help from Kate, the craft master. IΒ didn’t get a shelf in MY bed, and I probably had more stuff to store than Maryellen. I walked into the bedroom next door where we kept the wardrobe.

IMG_9941

Nancy walked up to me, her crazy red Afro hair flying out everywhere. “Wassup, Afro head?” I asked her, laughing at all of that red hair. “Kit, how should I put up my hair/ Everyone else told me to ask someone else, and you’re the last person there is to ask.” “Ask someone else.” I said, and snorted, since there wasn’t anyone else to ask. Nancy walked away, grumbling and complaining.

IMG_9942

I walked over to the kitchen when I was finally all dressed, and I looked around, to make sure that no one was looking. When I was sure that no one was going to go in the kitchen, I took the Nutella and ate a few spoonfuls. Yum!

IMG_9943

When I came back to my room, I saw Ruthie there, making my bed for me. “I can’t wait for Maryellen to come!” Said Ruthie, excitedly. I glared at her, and she stopped, knowing that I probably wasn’t happy about Maryellen. I glared at Maryellen’s bed, while grumbling.

IMG_9944

When Ruthie finished making my bed, I flopped onto it, with my laptop that I had to share with Sienna. I played a few computer games, and I also went on youtube. I was actually having a pretty good day, until I heard mom saying something. I decided to go to The bedrooms next door to have a better view of what was going on.

IMG_9946

I heard doll feet thumping on the stairs. Maryellen was here. Darn it.

So… How did you like part 1? Bye for now! πŸ™‚
