Mini Rebecca Goes Shopping

Hiya! I’m Rebecca! Happy to meet you!

In case you didn’t know, I’m one of the mini dolls here! (You can learn more about me from the “Meet the Mini Dolls” post!)

Anyways, today (the other day by the time you’re reading this) Gracie was going to go shopping with her mom, and she thought she’d bring one of us minis along to get some pictures for a post. Since I’m the fashionista in the mini family, Gracie decided to have me come along! She even fixed my hair up in a pretty bun for the outing (though she says that she did it for the practical benefits of having my hair out of the way…).

But let me tell you, it’s a strange thing to think that going shopping is a good activity for a fashionista! After getting me all ready to go, she put me in her purse! In her purse!

Here’s a picture of me that she took later on in the outing. It was dark and kind of cramped, but I suppose I’ll admit that I was glad I came along anyways. You get used to the purse after a while, and it actually turned out pretty… fun.

 

The first store we went was Marshalls! A pretty fun place. Gracie spotted a little alcove full of shoes and shoeboxes, and thought it’d be a nice place to stop in for some pictures of me!

Then I was put back in her purse as Gracie and her mom meandered around the shoe section. Next they looked around at clothes.

Gracie found this shirt, and I certainly agree with it. Too bad they don’t make it in 6 inch dolly size.

Basically the rest of the time in that store I was in her purse. We went to the dressing room and then wandered around the knick-knack section before finally leaving.

 

Next up we went to Target. Here I hung out in Gracie’s purse until we made it to the Our Generation doll aisle.

First thing after I was out of Gracie’s purse, I got up on top of the stable roof to say hello to the Lori dolls! Next I got to check out some of the Lori vehicles!

DSCN6373

Check out this neat car!

Gracie was about to get a picture of me in the car… when her camera died. 😦 That ended our trip in the OG aisle. I would have also liked to get some photos with the Wellie Wishers at Target, but I guess we’ll have to do that some other time.

Then Gracie went around the store with her mom to do their shopping, and after that we checked out and headed back home.

And now I’m here telling you this post! Oh, I guess you knew that part.

Anyways, I had a lot of fun shopping, even with being transported in a purse! Unfortunately Gracie didn’t buy me any Lori doll outfits or cars, but maybe some day I’ll convince her….

 

Have you ever taken your doll or mini doll shopping? What is your favorite store? What was your doll’s favorite store?

Thanks for reading my post!

Bye-bye!!

More… Sewing!

Hello!

Do you like to sew? I do! Though I don’t do it too often, occasionally I get a burst of motivation and make a bunch of doll clothes. And then, after several sewing projects the sewing machine isn’t used for a while until I get another motivation burst. 😉

But recently, I had one of those, and I made several things for the dolls! You can see my past sewing posts, here, and a second one here.

 

Onto the sewing…

DSCN6376

Here is Grace modeling some Jeans I sewed. as well as a T-shirt I sewed.

DSCN6382

The jeans were made with the Liberty Jane Jeans pattern I received from a Freebie Friday on Pixie Faire. And the T-shirt pattern is from the free pattern on Pixie Faire, here.

DSCN6389

And here is Consuelo in a skirt I made her. I don’t think I used a pattern for this.

DSCN6394

🙂

DSCN6398

Last but not least, Caroline is modeling this black shirt I sewed. This shirt is inspired by this shirt, and this shirt from DreamWorld Collections!

DSCN6406

I just used the same Pixie faire T-shirt pattern as for Grace’s shirt, except that I cut it so it would be longer (I used an old shirt, so the lace was already attached!). I think I got the sleeves from Pixie Faire’s pullover sweater pattern, though you could probably easily snag some sleeves from a free pattern online.

 

I hope you enjoyed!

Do you sew in spurts, regularly, or not much/not at all? Which piece of clothing or outfit was your favorite?

 

Have a blessed day!

Happy Resurrection Day! {{Easter 2018}}

Happy Easter everyone!

Today I’m here with some family photos of my dolls in the Easter outfits that you all voted on for them!

I hope you enjoy the pictures. Most importantly, my hope and prayer is that you remember the reason we celebrate Easter.

It’s not the rabbits, the chocolate, the egg hunts.

It is Resurrection Day. A day we commemorate Jesus rising from the grave after his death on the cross, conquering death and sin.

And as the song “Glorious Day” puts it,

~Living He loved us.

Dying He saved us.

Buried He carried our sins far away.

Rising He justified, freely forever.

And one day He’s coming back, oh glorious day!~

We don’t deserve His love, yet he freely gives it. Don’t take this message lightly! It is the most important news the world will ever know. Without it, we are doomed to eternity in Hell.

“All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him [Jesus] the iniquity of us all.” ~Isaiah 53:6 

There is hope in the power of the cross!

“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.” ~Acts 16:31. Visit my “What I Believe” page, or find a Bible church for more information 🙂 . And for those of you who are Believers, let’s rejoice in Jesus’ sacrifice, today and for eternity!

 

And now, onto the photos!

I hope you enjoyed the pictures, and that you had a blessed Easter!

Bonus photo comparison:

DSCN6507

I was using a white poster-board as a reflector. The above photo is an unedited picture without a reflector.

DSCN6505

And this one is an unedited picture with the reflector! I simply propped the board in front of me while I took the pictures. It really seems to even out the shadows, and help their eyes to shine a little more.

 

Choose My Dolls’ Easter Outfits! {Mega Who-Wears-it-Best Game}

Hi!

Can you believe that Easter is almost a week away!

I thought it would be fun to have you all essentially pick out my dolls’ Easter dresses through a Who-Wears-it-Best game! Then I can dress up my dolls in the outfit that wins the vote for each of them, and make an Easter post (possibly a photoshoot) of them dressed up in the outfits you all chose!

So here’s how it works…

I will show you pictures of an outfit on each of my dolls. After the set of pictures will be a poll, in which you can vote for whomever you think looks best in the outfit.

Or you could look through all the pictures first, before voting on a different outfit for each doll.

Whichever voting process you choose, or if you just want to sit back and look at the pictures, have fun! I look forward to seeing what you all come up with!

 

Let’s begin!

And as for Consuelo’s dress…

You’ll have to wait for Easter! 😉

 

Have you picked out your dolls’ Easter outfits? Or are you still surprised that Easter is only in a week? 🙂

 

One more thing…. Camp NaNoWriMo is coming up in April, anyone planning to participate? If so… does anyone have a cabin open for new members/want to start a cabin? 🙂 Let me know in the comments!

 

Have a blessed day!

Clara’s Top Ten Craft Materials and Supplies + The Craft Tag

Hi there!! It’s Clara speaking!!

Maybe you’ve heard? I love crafts!!

This in mind, Gracie thought it would be fun for me to share my top ten favorite crafting materials on her blog!

DSCN6247
And, as often happens, I forgot my glasses!

Gracie was also nominated for the Craft Tag by Lexie at Dolltastically Fun (Thanks, Lexie!), so I’ll also be doing that, in place of Gracie, later in this post!

So… let’s begin!

DSCN6254
This is my box of craft supplies!!

In no particular order…

 

1) Scissors

DSCN6266

This is pretty self explanatory. Cutting materials generally ends up turning out much better than tearing them. 😉

 

2) Tape

DSCN6270

Not only is tape useful for sticking your materials together, you can get many different types of tapes in many different designs, allowing you to use it not only for its practical benefits, but also for pretty decorative benefits! (Think washi (!!) and duct tape!)

 

3) Hot Glue

DSCN6260.JPG

Unfortunately I don’t have a hot glue gun, but Gracie does, and it is an amazing crafting tool! Normal glue is great, and can be used for some things that hot glue can’t, but hot glue works so much faster, and opens up new crafting opportunities. Just be careful and have an adult’s permission, it’s called hot glue for a reason!

 

4) Craft foam

DSCN6282

Craft foam is so much fun! It comes in so many exciting colors, and you can get different sheet sizes or thickness, if needed. It’s great for crafting doll food (think shredded cheese, coin-cut carrots, sandwiches, etc.) and more!

 

5) Clay

DSCN6279

Clay is a great material. Sometimes I think of it as separate to crafting, since you can basically form anything you want out of it, if you know how. It’s also great for doll food.

 

6) Paperboard (and cardboard)

DSCN6277

Don’t know what I mean by paperboard? It’s just the thin cardboard that makes cereal boxes and things like that. It is great for crafting! Plus, you can easily get it (free!) by recycling it from your empty cereal boxes! Normal cardboard is a wonderful supply as well, but you might need to be a bit creative if you want to hide those messy edges.

 

7) Paper/scrapbook paper

DSCN6286

White or solid colored paper is wonderful, and designed scrapbook paper is really fun too! (We especially like wood prints, and naturals like that). Paper is great for covering large (or small) crafts, to make them look nice.

 

8) Pens/pencils/markers

DSCN6292

And of course, drawing and coloring supplies are staple crafting tools, as well! I don’t think I need much of an explanation here…

 

9) Paint

DSCN6297

Paint is great! Whether your using it for art, or to color your latest project, it is a very good craft supply! I think acrylic is one of the best options for painting your clay, or other material crafts. (Tip from Gracie’s experience: Avoid painting your clay items with watercolor! It may chip off and not work well!)

 

10) Felt/fabric

DSCN6303

And last but not least, felts and fabrics are great materials for various craft and sewing projects. They’re great for sew or no-sew clothing, of course, but you can also use felts and fabrics for things like pillows, felted food, rugs, accessories, and more!

 

 

And now for the Craft Tag!

Here are the Rules:

Answer 5 questions

Create 5+ new questions

Tag people

What is the weirdest craft material you have ever used?

Good question! Once Gracie used real cinnamon and sugar for her clay snicker-doodle cookies! o_O That’s right! She made sure to cover over it in layers of mod-podge to seal it all in! She even sold several in her Etsy shop!

What kinds of things do you like to make?

Food (Our dolly kind, I mean) is a lot of fun to make! Furniture items are fun, as well. Gracie enjoyed crafting me and Grace’s bunk bed a long time ago 🙂 .

Do you use materials from the craft store, or do you use other things also, like recycled or up-cycled things?

Materials from the store are great, but we also love recycling paperboard and other random objects we may find to use in a craft! Once Gracie made a lamp using an old, golden-beaded candle-holder she found.

Are there any craft supplies that you hate or won’t use?

Not really, that I can think of.

Do you have a craft area / where do you do your crafts?

Gracie typically does her crafts at her desk in her room. I do my crafts either in my room or at the kitchen table!
