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.

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. (^_^)
