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!

Bonus photo comparison:

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

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!

Whew! That was about thirty pictures there, I think! What did you think of them? Which picture was your favorite?

I also hope that you enjoyed your Easter!

And above all else, I hope you took time to remember all that the Lord Jesus did for us.

“Hallelujah for the war He fought
Love has won, death has lost
Hallelujah for the souls He bought
Hallelujah for the cross”

{Newsboys, Hallelujah for the Cross, Lyrics via}
