Here’s my PHOTOSTORY
Clara had a good night’s sleep and awoke with inspiration and adventure in her eyes (perhaps it was from the book she had just finished reading the night before)
Today was a day for adventure! She was determined to have one!
She hopped out of bed towards her closet, not minding to leave her blanket on the bed.
She snatched up some clothes,
fixed up her bedhead,
made her bed (after retrieving her blanket that was halfway across the room),
grabbed her shoes
and bag (containing necessary items such as her notebook and hair ties)
and was off, ready for a day of adventure!
She didn’t know exactly where she was headed, so she just walked…
(being sure to watch for any spies trying to hinder her mission)
She had been walking a ways, and finally had started meandering through an untouched-seeming meadow, when she heard a high pitched ringing – quite resembling a scream. She stopped in her tracks and listened intently, her eyes scanning the area for any trouble. She was surprised at where her eyes landed…
“YOU!” She heard a tiny but fierce, female voice, “You Get Off Of My Mother NOW!”
“You big Bully!” An (ever so slightly) more manly voice shouted. Clara thought she heard him mumble, “Very Big Bully…” with a small whimper.
Clara no sooner saw the little blue lady under her shoe than she pulled her foot up and away, giving her deep apology. Thanks to the soft ground beneath them, the lady (Their mother, Clara detected), seemed fine, and was soon up.
Clara got down on the ground to observe these strange, tiny people. She saw that there was a icy blue woman, a young purple girl with a cute bob and bangs, and a tall(er) red teenager with a mo-hawk.
“I’m sorry that I stepped on you,” Clara said, gaping at the tiny family.
“Oh I’m fine,” The blue lady insisted in a sweet Southern accent, “What brings you here? I would offer you a cup of tea, but, well, I don’t have a cup your size…”
“That’s quite alright -”
“It’d better be! After barging in and stepping on Mother!” The purple girl had obviously not forgiven Clara.
“Dear me, I apologize, don’t mind Jackie here, she gets a bit defensive when it comes to human folk…”
“I did step on you though,” Clara said, sorrowfully, “Is there any way that I might help you, and make up for it?”
“Actually,” the red boy spoke up. he nodded to a little green kid that Clara hadn’t even noticed before. “could you speak some sense into him? He’s always just -”
“Harry!” The Mother scolded, “Your brother’s going through a rough patch. try to be sympathetic.” She turned towards Clara, “You see, my husband went off on a long trip for work, and he’s hardly ever been gone before now. Jerry misses him terribly, and hasn’t been happy, or interacted with us at all since his Father’s left. He’s nearly starving himself to death!”
Clara looked thoughtful. “How long until he comes home?”
“Oh, twenty-five days.”
Clara nodded, “I have an idea.” She sat down beside Jerry and the other family members peeked from behind her shoelaces and bag as Clara introduced herself and chatted with Jerry.
The family watched, intrigued, as Clara took out her notebook and started tearing strips of paper from its pages. Even Jerry seemed interested.
“Have anything sticky, like glue?” Clara asked them. The Mom handed Clara a small pot of a fast-drying honey-glue.
Soon Clara had made a long paper chain. It had 25 links.
“So that every day you can tear one off, and when you reach the end, your dad is coming home!” Clara explained.
Jerry smiled at her (she could tell because of the white streak on his face).
The family hugged Clara’s fingers. She had encouraged Jerry successfully.
Then they turned and hugged each other, reunited.
They exchanged “thank you’s” and “farewell’s” as Clara walked away, the little people all waving and smiling happily as she left.
Clara smiled gaily to herself; what an adventure she had! She could only hope that she would see them again someday – and perhaps even meet their father!
That was a lot of fun to do! 🙂
Now onto the QUESTIONS 🙂
How old were you when you got your first AG doll, and who was it?
My very first American Girl doll was Julie. ❤ I think I might have been seven when I received her.
Which three dolls would you get next, even if they’ve been archived?
ADDY! As for the other two…*looks at American Girl website* *thinks about retired dolls*… perhaps Maryellen and Felicity…or maybe Nellie… I don’t really know XD
How long have you been doll blogging?
Not very long. My first post was on June 6 (of 2016). (Wanna see it? Here’s the link!)
Why did you start a doll blog?
I thought it’d be fun to show the world something I love and be involved in the blogging community! 🙂 It’s also a neat accomplishment.
How are your dolls ‘related’ on your blog? (sisters, not related, cousins, friends, etc.)
They are sisters!
And now for the two questions from Kaitlyn…
What do you like more – dolls with curly hair or straight hair?
Straight! Caroline’s hair is beautiful, but can be tricky to manage 🙂
And what is your favorite doll?
Of all the dolls? Or of my dolls? Either way, I don’t really know, hehe. Julie is my first doll, so she is special to me (not to mention, she’s so pretty). Although I’d probably never get her, Samantha is so classic and pretty, so I like her as well. It’s hard to say…
And my two questions for my nominees:
What has been your favorite Girl of the Year so far?
What time period do you want American girl to make a doll from, Or what doll do you want them to bring out of the archives?
Loren at Happy House of AG
Emma at Wack-a-Doodle-Dolls
Victoria at The By Kids for Kids Blog
Kara at Doll World
Jaclynn at Little House of American Girl
Also, I recently have been experimenting with reflectors and made a couple by covering cardboard in aluminum foil. Check out the difference it can make!
Without reflector With reflector
The reflector allowed me to take a pic of Clara with a window behind her, without her being a silhouette. The reflector can work nicely to light her up in other situations as well.
Also also, I have two new pages up! One (What I Believe) has been up for a while, and the other (Polls) is fresh off the press! I’d love if you checked them out!
