BIBPC the Sixth – Category 2: candle, candy cane, card, carols, celebrate, chestnuts, chill

Hello! Here is my entry for Category 2 of BIBPC!

This category is…

candle, candy cane, card, carols, celebrate, chestnuts, chill!


I am on Team Owl! I used all seven words in my photo:


The candles are in the window; the candy canes are to the left of the sheet music; two cards are to the right of the sheet music; the sheet music is a Christmas carol; the cards, candy canes, carol, and festive blanket celebrate the holiday; the sheet music is for “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire” (also called “The Christmas Song”); and the blanket on the bench is there to keep off the chill!

Go Owls! It was a lot of fun thinking up this photo! 🙂


Have a blessed day!

‘Tis the Season – Holiday Series Part One

Merry Christmas!

Or, at least, Merry Christmas Season! 😉

I wanted to do something special for this wonderful time of the year! So I decided on a four part series where my dolls will each get a post to share something they love about Christmas and the Holiday season (thus, “tis’ the season” for…! 😉 ) ! Each post will have a certain theme, such as a craft or a photostory.

Tis the Season!

Here’s a quick look ahead at the schedule! (dates are my current plan, but could change)

     Part One, Wednesday, December 13: Caroline, Collection Post

     Part Two, Saturday, December 16 : Clara, Craft Post

     Part Three, Tuesday, December 19: Grace, Recipe Post

     Part Four, Friday, December 22: Julie, Photostory Post

I hope you will enjoy!


I’ll hand it over to Caroline, now, for her post in this series!



Why hello. *waves*

I think we can all agree that Christmas is one of the best times of year. It’s so beautiful and festive, and filled with memories.

So today I’m here to start off this series with one of my favorite things in this season. And you may not expect it…


…Sweaters. 🙂 Pullover sweaters.

I love getting to wear my cozy, warm sweaters at this time of year (preferably with a cup of hot tea).

Ahhh. ☺

So today I am going to show you my collection of sweaters. It’s not very large. I’ll save my favorites for last.



First is this pink sweater. I don’t believe I’ve actually worn this one before (oh dear), and that has been fixed in this picture’s very moment. Grace wore it before, though, in this post. She looked nice in it, don’t you think?



These aren’t as winter-y, but here is a tank top sweater.



And another tank top sweater.


Next I’ll show you my two favorites. ♥ ☺



This one is my favorite. 🙂 Simple, and the first one Gracie made. And cozy. 



This one Gracie just finished. She wanted to embellish it and enter it into Pixie Faire’s sweater contest… until she realized that, alas, it was due days ago. Though the previous sweater is my favorite, this one may take its place sometime.

Next are some bonus pictures from the photoshoot Gracie took for this post…

Here is Gracie’s family cat, coming to investigate this unusual setup ☺.


And now are some other extra pictures!


Gracie is considering this one to be my new profile picture. Thoughts?



Christmas Wallpaper

She made a Christmas wallpaper for her laptop with a photo she got of the tinsel. You are welcome to use it, if you like.


And here is another way I like to wear these sweaters: with a button-up underneath! Especially with long-sleeved pullovers.


And that is all I have to show you today. 🙂


Consuelo: “WAAIIT!”

Oh! Hello!


Consuelo: Look! Look!! I have a sweater too!!

Why, how sweet! But… it looks a little big, don’t you think? Try this one. A tank top, but perhaps a step in the right direction.


Consuelo: Hmmm, Ok! Yeah this one’s great! 

I’m going to finish off the post now, OK?

Consuelo: Okey Dokey!


I do hope that you all enjoyed seeing my sweaters–and Consuelo’s as well! ☺ ♥


And I also hope that you will come back and enjoy my sisters’ posts coming up soon.


Which sweater was your favorite? Are you looking forward to the rest of the series?


Farewell and Merry Christmas!! ♥

Well, I suppose we should celebrate a little, right?

In celebration of 100 followers, I’m doing a…

* * * *

Here’s how it works:

  • You can comment down below with up to 5 questions for me to answer. You can ask me about pretty much anything, but if you ask something that I (and/or my mom) find inappropriate or too personal, I won’t be answering it.
  • In a week or two, I will make a post answering the questions!


Thanks again for all your support! ❤




P.S. I have been working for a while on a photostory! It’s not done yet, but I hope to get it up soon!

P.P.S. There is a great giveaway going on at Faking it Mostly for a mini Maryellen doll!! Check it out here.



Wow!! I have fifty (four!) followers! Thank you, thank you, thank you, everyone!

I love reading all your amazing comments, and seeing your blogs! You guys are awesome!

I only started this blog last June, so this is pretty amazing!

For a little bit of celebration, would you rather…

  • I do a post on blogging tips (I’d probably do this from a reader’s perspective, since I’ve been reading blogs longer than writing them 🙂 )
  • OR a Question and Answer post
  • OR something else you would love to see?

Let me know in the comments!

Thank you again, SO, SO, much!
