Looking Forward to 2015

After acquiring so many new (to me) dolls in 2014 and I've finally hit the couch of contentment with my current collection of dolls. I don't plan on adding anymore dolls with the exception of GOTY dolls... past, present or future. I may or may not add every GOTY because it'll depend on how I feel about her.

Speaking of GOTY dolls, I'm sure everyone has seen leaks of GOTY 2015 Grace Thomas and her collection on various social media outlets. 

I won't post spoilers here for those who want to be surprised but I'll admit I'm looking forward to acquiring her and quite a few pieces from her collection to use in Saleen's world. (^_^) There has been a rumor her big ticket item will cost $500. Is there truth to the rumor? I'm not sure but considering the cost of Samantha's Ice Cream Parlor at $300, it's very well possible.

Like I already stated, I will only add GOTY dolls to my collection for the foreseeable future. So in 2015, my only plan is to add  GOTY 2012 McKenna Brooks and GOTY 2015 Grace Thomas. I know you are wondering about McKenna, she's always been on my list but a lower priority due to her secondary market price but since I only plan to buy 2 dolls in 2015, I'm hoping to find a great deal on the secondary market like I did for Kanani and Sonali. I'll be honest I don't need a NIB McKenna with full meet, of course that would be nice but totally unnecessary because in reality when will she actually wear it? 

My main AG goals for 2015 are to focus more on creating a world for Saleen & Zoë. (^_^) My girls need somewhere to sleep and have fun with their friends. (^_^) I actually plan to build my own dollhouse and fill it with accessories and furniture to make it home. I already found a pretty awesome way to create a 4 room doll house for less than $100! I'll post more about that when the time comes. I've also decided I will be looking to stretch my dollie dollars by continuing to purchase secondhand. Hopefully I can find great deals again like I did for the curlique bed with complete butterfly bedding ($49.99 shipped) and almost complete  Chrissa's craft table with the exception of the missing knitting needles ($85 shipped). I also plan to use Our Generation stuff to help fill out what I don't get from AG because I've heard there stuff is pretty good quality. I already know 2015 will be an amazing year for my girls and I. 

What are your doll plans for 2015?

Best of 2014

With the end of 2014 quickly coming to an end, I felt it was time to look back on what I was fortunate enough to bring home this year. I am in no way bragging because with the exception of Zoë, all of my dolls were purchased secondhand or on SUPER sale.

After dragging my feet on Kennedy (fka GOTY 2013 Saige) and thinking I didn't want to add her to my collection. 
I found out I was wrong and welcomed her to my doll family the second week of January. I got a deal because even though she was officially retired at that point I was able to bring her home for less than retail with her box.

Then March brought the arrival of the sweetest doll, Maisie (fka Ivy Ling). 
She had been on my list thanks to one of the people I follow on Instagram. She always made her look so adorable plus I had heard rumblings of the possibilty of her retiring, so I didn't want to miss out on my chance of getting her and have to scour for her. 

In April, I welcomed my grail doll, Saleen (fka Sonali Matthews) home.
Waiting for her to arrive was soo nerve wrecking and I was super overjoyed when she finally arrived. She was by far my best purchase of the year. As you already know, she is my absolutely, positively favorite doll and will remain so for all eternity. LOL Well, you get what I mean. ^^;

In May, Zoë (#58) arrived a birthday surprise from my hubby.
After helping my Sister-In-Law move into her new house, my hubby surprised me with a trip to AGP-LA where I got to handpick Zoë out myself. He such an amazing husband and I'm so grateful he's so supportive of my hobby. He even named her. (^_^)

June brought the arrival of Haven (fka Rebecca Rubin).
You all knew I went back and forth with myself about getting her for soo very long and while she is amazing, she hasn't been able to take top spot away from Saleen. (^^;)

Now the shocker of the year definitely has to be the addition of Avaree (GOTY 2014 Isabelle). 

Remember when I said I wouldn't bring her home. Well I guess you can see that all changed because Jill's Steals and Deals on 12/10/2014. ^^; I wasn't expecting Isabelle to be a part of the steals and at more than 1/2 half too. I couldn't pass her up. I don't think the GOTY has ever gone on sale like that before and I would have been foolish to not take advantage of the opportunity. Once I saw what was available I started texting my hubby and he finally got back to me about 5:45am Pacific/7:45am Central/8:45am Eastern. By this time I wasn't sure I would even be able to get the $68 Isabelle and Pet collection but as my luck would have it, after a server error and slow loading page, I was able to snag her and she was part of my Christmas/Anniversary presents from him. 

I consider myself very fortunate, lucky and most grateful to welcome these beautiful dolls to my family. Hope everyone had an amazing AG year!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Merry Christmas! Hope everyone has an amazing day. So as you can see there is a new girl here. Everyone please meet Avaree! Not who you were expecting? I wasn't expecting her either but she really is adorable in person. Yes, GOTY 2014 Isabelle Palmer has joined my doll family and I'm glad I didn't miss out on her. I love her!

What did you get for Christmas? 

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

Merry Christmas Eve!

Tomorrow is the big day! Saleen and Zoë are excited and ready to introduce their newest friend to everyone. They've been patiently waiting and the time has finally come. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!

4 Days til Christmas!

Saleen is getting ready for the upcoming holidays. Can you believe it's only 4 days until Christmas and only 10 days left in 2014?! This has been an amazing year and I look forward to what's to come in 2015. (^_^)

Saturday, December 20, 2014

Christmas Arrived Early!

Well it's not really a surprise since I already know what's inside the box BUT I'm still excited! As you can tell from the size it's a new doll but I'm still working on her introduction outfit. She'll make her debut within the next couple of days (by Christmas, of course) but I need to figure out who wears what. The decisions are soo hard. LOL

Snow Cold!

Okay that'll be my last snow pun because there aren't anymore snow photos after these. LOL
The weather is steadily getting colder here but we will not have any snow fall where we live. I had a lot of fun taking Saleen along with my family and I. Of course I received some looks... You know the one, "Is she taking photos of a doll?"
I give them the look, "Why yes I am! And she is absolutely beautiful too." LOL I did hear a few little girls and possibly a little boy say/ask their parents/guardians, "Is that an American Girl doll?". I'd rather hear that than get the crazy doll lady stares. At any rate, I had an amazing time and was happy to bring Saleen along for the trip. (^_^)

Snow Much Fun!

Looks like Saleen had snow much fun! Her first time visiting "snow" and she absolutely loved it. I think she was trying to make a snow angel but wasn't quite sure how to do it. (^^;) Maybe next time she'll get it right. (^_~)

The weather has been quite cold and we even had 2 days of rain last week! It's suppose to rain tomorrow and Wednesday but I'm not sure if it'll really happen though but I do look forward to it because that means I can break out the cozy sweats and the hot cocoa and listen to it. I love the rain esepcially when I don't have to go out in it. (^_^) 

How's the weather where you are now? Do you have snow, rain, warm weather, etc.?

Long Time, No Blog

Sorry for my absence. Let's just say I was super busy with my oldest daugher's extra curricular activities. I had a blast showing my support for my daughter and watching her experience marching band for the first time and out of the 5 competitions they received 1st place 4 times and 3rd once. Her marching band also made it to championships where they came in 9th out of over 30 other high schools. So I'm way proud of her and now I get to look forward to watching her in perform in the Winter Guard. 
Yesterday the family and I went to visit the "snow" and since I haven't played with my dolls in months, I decided to take my #1 girl along. We had an amazing day and it felt great to be photographing my girl again. I've really messed the time I had to devote to my dolls and will need to figure out how to be super mom and still have some time for my own me time. Since I was able to take some photos I'll be sharing a photo a day until I've posted them all. (^_^)

I actually have a wee bit of a surprise to announce a little later this week. I don't want to wait until Christmas to share... Well you know what I will wait to make that announcement even thought I could spill the beans earlier. ^^; 

Anyways, my plan is to set up my Christmas scene and take holiday photos of the girls, well the ones I have clothing for anyways. LOL It feels great to be semi back to normal. (^_^)

♥ My Girls ♥

Look at my beautiful girls! (^_^) No #26 is not a new doll. She's been here since May 2012. (Go ahead and check the archives, I'll wait. ^^) See, her name is Alanna and she was on a bit of a vacation. ^^; Saleen & Zoë said it was time for their little sister to join them. So they are now a trio instead of a duo. ^^ Kind of funny how she's the youngest sister when she's been here the longest. :-) I need to figure out how to write her into Saleen & Zoë's story.

Now that BeForever is a week old, I've been able to resume my normal daily routine. Not to mention being sick for week also helped prolong my historical hysteria. Remember when I said I wanted Addy and she would be coming home? Well, it may be quite sometime before I bring her home, if I bring her home at all. ^^; 

The new BeForever edition of the American Girl catalog arrived yesterday just to taunt me. Doesn't Addy look so beautiful?! 

So let me explain. I was talking about buying Addy with my 14yo daughter and she said I really don't want her because I've never mentioned her or had her on my list to buy before BeForever. O.o I told her the reason why she wasn't on my list was because of her hideous line eyebrows. Sorry for those who like them, I do NOT like them at all. Then she said the only reason why I would be buying her is because she's all new and shiny. Well yeah, she has feathered eyebrows now. LOL She told me to think it over before making my final decision. I guess I'll admit she has a point and I will think it over for the next few months since she's not going to be going anywhere any time soon. If I still want her say around Christmas which is 3 days before my wedding anniversary, I'll ask my hubby to buy as a gift for this year. :-P

So I guess we'll see what happens.

BeForever Is Here!

Eeek! Now we all know I don't collect Historicals, well I guess I should say BeForever dolls and keep them canon. But we have to agree this re-launch of the line is such a great win for those who do, especially for those who have been waiting for Samantha to return. There are many blogs and/or YouTube videos that will cover all of the new BeForever goodies from American Girl. I'm just going to share with you my thoughts on things I like. (^_^)

Samantha Parkington & Book, $115
Samantha is a pretty doll and I like her new meet outfit but she hasn't been a doll I would add to my doll family. I'm happy for those who do like her and will be adding her to theirs. 

Here are a couple of her pieces I like. (^_^)

Samantha's Bed & Bedding, $150

This bed is beautiful and I would like even it more without the curtain thing. LOL
Samantha's Bicycle, $115
I love her bike! I'm almost tempted to get it for Saleen... almost! ^^;
Samantha's Ice Cream Parlor, $300
Now, this ice parlor looks amazing and I would love to get it but I don't have space or money for it. Congrats to those who collect or will collect for Samantha 2.0! She has some really pretty stuff.

Almost all of the girls got much needed updated meet outfits. These are my favorites.
Julie's Meet Outift, $36
I just love the bright colors of this outfit.

Kit's Meet Outfit, $36
Love, love, love the style and colors of Kit's Meet outfit. I would get this and Haven would wear it. ^^

I know I said I'm sharing my favorites of the new meet outfits but there is a doll that has captured my heart and she WILL be added to my doll family.

Addy Walker Doll & Book, $115

Yes, it's Addy! I ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY LOVE her new look. Her meet outfit is beautiful and she looks stunning! I think she'll make the perfect big sister for Saleen & Zoë.

So there you have it. The only for sure addition to my collection will be BeForever Addy from the new BeForever Line. She will be mine! ^^;

Will you be adding anything new to your collection from the BeForever line? If so, what?

***** Update ****** I was soo caught up with BeForever that I didn't notice the price went up by $5 for MyAGs too. All AGs are $115 with the exception of GOTY being $120. 

Also, if you are getting the BeForever Addy pay attention to her eyebrows because it appears that some stores have been redressing the old Addy into the new meet outfit. The new BeForever Addy should have FEATHERED eyebrows, not line eyebrows. (^_^)

Sweet Maisie

American Girl Doll - Ivy Ling
Isn't she so sweet? Her face is so adorable and her eyes are amazing! I'm sad to see she has finally been archived but glad to have her here in my doll family.

American Girl Doll - Ivy Ling
Maisie has been enjoying the last few days of Summer vacation. She and Zoë are looking forward to going back to school. They just found out they'd be in the same class this year. 

Speaking of doll family, my doll display has changed a wee bit. My girls normally stay on my dresser in front of my bed. I got overwhelmed the other day and now only Saleen, Zoë, Maisie, Nevaeh and Haven are there. No, I didn't sell the other 4, I just put them away because I really haven't interacted with them and I felt bad. I would rather them be put away for safe keeping than gather dust on my dresser. Now I can truly focus my attention on these girls.

Friday, August 8, 2014

Maisie Says Hello!

Before I got sick I also played around with this nifty little app and created this...

Isn't it cute? I had a lot of fun making it and plan to do more of them. (^_^)

New @ Saleen's Style

Earlier this week I listed a couple of new designs, strapless romper and lace tank top plus shorts on etsy @ but got sick and I'm now just getting better. I don't like being sick at all. Anyways, check them out when you get a chance!

Maisie + Zoë

American Girl Doll #58 & Ivy Ling
equal Best Friends Forever. (^_^)

It was brought to my attention some people didn't know Zoë (#58) was part of my doll family and that made me SUPER sad because since she's been here since May 17th and she is such a beautiful and sweet girl. I guess she's shy compared to her outgoing big sister, Saleen. ^^; 

I'm more excited and motivated to get Zoë's room all setup so she has some place for her and Maisie to hang out. I'm already designing her room in my head and she will post weekly on Saleen's blog... once I get everything all setup. She'll have her own little space there. So excited for the upcoming changes.

Changes are coming and I hope everyone likes the new changes.

Saleen's Design Space

American Girl of the Year 2009 Best Friend - Sonali Matthews
Caught Saleen in her new design space. Of course this space is a work in progress and I will add to it as time goes on. I'm either going to buy a dress form or make her one. I'm leaning toward making one and then it'll be more special and personalized. ^^; 

It feels great to finally have almost all the main furniture pieces for Saleen's world acquired. I'd still like to get her a bookshelf and wardrobe for her room. Also on my list is to get Zoë's bedroom furniture then pieces for the kitchen and living room areas but those have to wait until I have my bookshelf or other permanent place to put everything. I'm hoping to have some sort of shelving system in place by October so Saleen and Zoë can have a Halloween Party. But in the meantime, I'll pick up little knick knack pieces and "wallpaper" to fill the walls and make her space feel lived in. (^_^)

Oh yeah, I guess I should get her school stuff for Back to School since it's right around the corner. ^^; I'm going to get her the new Doodle Backpack Set from AG because it looks adorable! Unless I find one on etsy or eBay that I think is cuter OR I make her one. ^^;

I'm just soo happy her world is finally becoming a reality and not just an idea in my head. (^_^)

Girl Talk

American Girl of the Year 2009 Best Friend - Sonali Matthews
American Girl of the Year 2011 - Kanani Akina
Here's another peek into Saleen's bedroom. There's a lot of decorating left to be done but I can only do a little at a time. I'm really hoping to get a bookshelf to have a permanent set up for my girls because I want to make a room for Zoë and possibly a kitchen and/or living room. For now I'm happy and will enjoy my  temporary setup. (^_^)

Oh, I need to decide if I add her design studio (which arrived today) in her room or have it in it's own space. I guess for now it'll have to be in her room because space is limited. ^^; There's still one more package but it hasn't even shipped yet, supposed to ship tomorrow. >.> 

Wow! Look at me I made blog posts 2 days in a row and I already have my post ready for tomorrow too! (^_^)

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

G'day Everyone!

American Girl of the Year 2009 Best Friend - Sonali Matthews
American Girl of the Year 2011 - Kanani Akina

Snapped a quick pic of Nevaeh, Princess and Saleen taking a break from decorating and rearranging Saleen's room. Saleen still has some other pieces coming in the mail, actually UPS but her room is really starting to take shape. I've finally found a real direction for her room to go. You'll be getting sneak peeks as I set it up. 

Well, Summer vacation is almost over and I've only posted here like twice. I guess between having all my children home and Saleen's budding clothing line, Saleen's Style, I haven't had much time to blog. Good news! That's all about to change because my kids start school on August 12th and I'm really sad to see them go. :*(

I do have some updates to report. It appears I've hit what some collectors call the couch of contentment with my collection. I'm not looking to add any new girls but enjoy the ones already here and build their personalities. I know I said that before but I mean it this time though. LOL My collection has been reduced by 2 girls, Chrissa (fka Karma) and Jess (fka Kalea) have moved on to a new homes, so now my group is down to a cozy 9 girls. This number seems to be comfortable for me and everyone has their place. Guess it's time I update my header. ^^;

So, my main character is Saleen and if you follow me on Instagram you already know. (^_^) Her sister is Zoë (#58) and Saleen's best friend is Nevaeh. BUT Zoë also has a best friend, Maisie. If you're keeping count that is 4, what about the other 5? They are the supporting cast. ^^; I know that sounds bad but I can't it, those 4 are my main girls. (^_^)

How was your Summer? 
Any new arrivals or departures?

My Beautiful Dylan

The first of four historical archivals/retirements has happened. Ruthie Smithens is now sold out from AG on-line and I'm sad to see such a beautiful doll leave but a week or so ago I took my Dylan out for a photo shoot to help those who were on the fence about her push them over. LOL These were originally posted on Instagram over a number of days but you get to enjoy them all at one time. (^_^)

I'm soo happy my DH and DD bought her for me for as a Christmas/Anniversary present this past year. There are no more gray eyed dolls in the AG line up and I'm fortunate enough to own one of them.

Farewell Ruthie Smithens, you will be missed!

Meet Haven!

As you can see, I kinda fell off the face of the Earth. It wasn't intentional but it happened with all the end of the year activities with my kids... my oldest will be a Freshman in High School come August... I'm a mom to a High Schooler! Aaarrgghhh! LOL Then I helped with my 1st graders end of the year party PLUS Saleen had two collections released since my last post. Not to mention my birthday. So it has been a busy few weeks but I can finally say we are all settled into our daily Summer routine of just relaxing. Of course I still took photos of my girls during my absences and I will post them in a bit but guess what happened during my time away.

American Girl Doll - Rebecca Rubin

Yes, I got Rebecca Rubin... even though her name here is Haven! (^_^) She is such a beautiful doll and I love her soo much! She truly is unique and her eyes are stunning. I thought they'd be similar to Nevaeh's but her's are more green. She is amazing! I'm glad I finally got her.

So it looks like I need to update my header and add my two new girls (yeah, Zoë is missing from up there too) BUT I have one more girl I'm bringing back... seller's remorse because I miss her soo much. The only thing is I have to purchase her quickly otherwise I may miss out. Yes, she's one of the soon to be archived/retired dolls. (;_・)

Thanks everyone for commenting and continuing to read my blog. I really appreciate it!

Saleen's Big Day!

It has been a long time coming and I know how all of you wanted to know about Saleen and her blog. So without further ado...

Saleen's Style is the name of her new blog and clothing line! The blog is still in the beginning stages but as time goes on I'll get the hang of it. :) I'll let you know when she updates her blog. 

Be sure to also check it out her etsy shop and let me know what you think! :)
Thanks everyone for being soo supportive.

Pretty Flowers and Tree Sap!

American Girl Doll - MyAG #58
"There are always flowers for those who want to see them." - Henri Matisse

No the sap wasn't on the flowers. Thank goodness! Doesn't Zoë look so peaceful? She's so beautiful. BUT Saleen on the other hand got to experience tree sap first hand today while I was taking photos for her clothing line release.
Yes, her release will be on Sunday along with the reveal of her blog. See her in the photo above, that was after I removed the tree sap. Not fun at all. My heart dropped when I moved her from the tree and saw her hair shining. I touched it and sure enough it was sap. I ran into the house and started washing it with dish soap! Then I moved on to baby shampoo and let me tell you, babies must put a lot of sticky stuff in their hair because it came out rather quickly. I'm just glad I got it out. I was literally ready to cry. No more tree shoots for awhile. ^^;

Zoë ✿

American Girl Doll - My AG #58
Zoë is starting to fit right in with the rest of the girls. She and Maisie have already become best friends! I think it has to do with being the youngest girls here. (^v^) 

I love all of Zoë's unruly little curls! I think my favorite hairstyle for her right now is pig tails but I'm still trying to work with her hair down. I have a vision in my head of how I want her hair to look when not in pig tails and I haven't gotten it in real life to look the way I want yet. LOL

Saleen wanted me to let everyone know her blog is essentially finished... design wise and she'll be doing the big reveal really soon. Bear in mind it's still a work in progress, so a few of the photos are from here BUT the posts are written by Saleen. ^^; Also I've decided to let Saleen open her own etsy shop to sell her designs. You can find her etsy shop link if you take a look around the blog. ⋆ ᴗ ⋆

Question: Since Zoë and Saleen are sisters, do they have to do everything together? I mean Saleen can go to outings to the amusement parks and whatnot without her right? I ask because it's a lot easier to take 1 doll than 2 plus Saleen is my go to gal and she deserves the spotlight... just kidding. (・。・;) Okay, not really. LOL

Monday, May 19, 2014

Sisterly Love PLUS Coming Soon!

I'm loving these girls! They look so adorable together. My hubby is an amazing man and I'm so lucky to have him. 

Also resident fashion maven, Saleen, has let me know she would like to share her styles with her friends (you guys) but in limited quantities. Hey, she still wants to be an individual. (^_^) So be on the lookout for more sneak peeks as her debut release approaches. 

Sunday, May 18, 2014

Surprise Girl!

My hubby did it again! I thought I had already received my birthday present as a combo with my Mother's Day present,  SDCC Pullip Catwoman who I wanted last year but opted for WF Pullip Batgirl instead. Goodness, I was soooo wrong! I wasn't expecting anything AG for my birthday but look at my beautiful new girl, Zoë.

Yes, he bought #58 and I was able to hand pick her myself! He took me to AGPLA yesterday unannounced and said pick your new doll. Sorry I would've taken photos of AGPLA but I was caught off guard and didn't bring my camera. I'm so happy beyond words. I'm very grateful and thankful of my hubby's continued support of my doll collecting hobby. My doll family is COMPLETE!

❤️ Besties ❤️

American Girl of the Year 2006 - Jess McConnell & 2009 GOTY Friend Sonali Matthews 

Here is a sneak peek of a photo of Saleen and her best friend, Kalea that'll be used in her room. This is the Instagram photo using their filters. The actual photo doesn't have the filters and doesn't look this horrible! Well I hope it doesn't anyways. Also,why does Saleen's hair sticks look like antennas on the top of her head? LOL

These are also photos that will be used in her room. Again these photos don't look like the above filters used again but you get the idea. The photos only cost me $0.33 at Walgreens! So I plan to get a few more printed of Saleen and her friends to make her a photo album.

I tell you, this is amazing creating her world. Oh yeah, I finished making her dresser and bookshelf this past weekend. I hope to post an updated photo of her room a little later this week. I'm so excited how her room is coming together. (^_^)

Sneak Peek of Saleen's Room & Pet!

American Girl of the Year Friend 2009 - Sonali Matthews
This was how I spent my Friday afternoon/evening, taking indoor photos of Saleen with her new dog, Princess and "working" on her bedroom. ^^

I'm happy to say my indoor photography is really starting to come together. This photo was taken with natural light from my sliding glass door around 5:30pm using my 50mm lens. I'm starting to feel confident enough to take photos indoors of Saleen for her blog. Good thing too because there are some posts that wouldn't make sense otherwise. LOL

I'm most excited with how Saleen's room is starting to become a reality! Look I  made Saleen a bed complete with bedding for FREE because I had everything already on hand! (Can you see it peeking out in the background? ^^) I kept trying to find the perfect bed for her and little did I know that bed would be one I made instead of purchased. I should've taken photos of the process for a tutorial but I didn't think about it. ^^;

Next up are her dresser, wall decorations and deciding what type of rug and closet or wardrobe for her.  LOL 

If you are interested to know how to make any of the stuff you see or will see in Saleen's room, just let me know and I will help you out as best I can. (^_^)

Sweet Day!

American Girl of the Year 2009 Friend - Sonali Matthews
I was able to snap this photo of Saleen even though it's been extremely windy out lately. I'd take windy over extremely hot any day. LOL

Someone on AGPT mentioned about starting their collection anew with just collecting for one doll because they were leaving home and going off to college. The idea kinda sparked my interest and hit home for me. This year, I basically started my collection anew but with the addition of Saleen, I've been solely focused on her and loving every moment of it. It feels nice to only focus on one of my girls instead of all 9 girls. Yes she is spoilt and will continue to be spoilt rotten. After 2+ years of collecting, I've found my Inky. We all know who Inky is (if you don't, check her out) and how special she is to her person, well that is how Saleen is for me. Like she has multiple dolls with whom she loves but Inky is her go to gal and so is Saleen for me. 

So the changes will be felt all around here but change is good... right? (^_^) My post count here will be down from every day to several times a month, keeping you updated on all the rest of the girls. I already mentioned Saleen has her own blog and it's almost ready for the big reveal. I already have like 5 posts lined up ready to be published so the ideas are overflowing there. Her character has been building itself, well you know what I mean. LOL

Be sure to stay tuned! (^_^)

My Spring Maiden

American Girl of the 2009 Friend - Sonali Matthews
Saleen has become my muse for sure. It's without a doubt she is my absolute favorite. I never thought someone would top Nevaeh but it has happened. I have been soo busy building her world that all my other girls and my blog have kinda taken a back burner. I apologize for the lack of posts and photos. I plan to change that once I get Saleen's world a little more developed, so please bear with me. (^_^)
