Celebrating Harry Potter's Birthday

If you love Harry Potter as much as Emily does, you'll know that today is Harry and J.K. Rowling's birthday! Because of that, Emily wore her Deathly Hallows tank (made by yours truly) and put a scar on her forehead (with a washable marker).

She also made a cake with oddly colored frosting, inspired by the cake Harry gets.

Her card says, "Happee Birthdae Harry! P.S.- Yer a wizard btw. :)" (you'll get it if you've read the book/watched the movie.)

Make a wish Harry!
(and J.K. Rowling! :D)

New Personal Blog!!

Hey guys! As you may know, I have had many personal blogs, but I have hope in this one! 
It's called Echo, and I do hope you will check it out! I would love you forever. :)
Anyways, I would post about my life, crafts, photography, writing, fandoms, stuff like that.
So yes- please check it out and maybe follow? I promise to be post more exciting stuff to this blog soon! I'm re-doing my room, which means I'm re-doing my doll area, so stay tuned for more crafts as I re-do it!


 P.S.- if you haven't checked my new blog out, click HERE or HERE or HERE! :)

P.P.S.- I'm still trying to figure out the design of this blog, so the header's just a filler for now. :)
And I just finished a sort-of half "Potter-Thon"! Just thought I'd tell you that.

I Think I've Done Something Pretty Cool

So today I really felt like doing some blog designing, so I made one of my old blogs into a test blog to try it out some more. You can view that HERE HERE HERE!! Anyways, I thought that maybe if one of you would like one of the neat little things on your blog (hover colors, social media buttons, headers, custom email/search bar, etc.), then you can just leave a comment or email me at ! Thanks! :)

And just a quick photo of Nellie. :)

I MIGHT Have Figured Out Lightroom...

So for a while now, I've been trying to find good editing software or apps that weren't too confusing. I found some that were okay, but they were missing something. Then I remembered that I my camera had come with Lightroom, which is an editing software by Adobe Photoshop. I tried it out, but it was WAY too confusing for me to handle. But then I found some lovely people on Instagram who use Lightroom and recently posted videos on how they edit:

These videos helped me out a lot and I think I might have figured it out...maybe.

So this was the picture I started out with.

...and this is the end result. It's totally not the best since I'm still learning, but I think I'm improving on my editing skills, even if it's just by a tad.

Do you edit your photos? If you do, what do you use?

P.S- I have a Twitter! It's @carrotandclaire. :)

P.P.S- I really want to make a new personal blog, but I can't think of a good name! What do you think?

A Doctor Who Photoshoot

So a couple weeks ago, I did a Doctor Who inspired photoshoot and posted it on my Instagram (@carrotandclaire). People seemed to like it, so I thought I would post them here! So here are nine photos and their captions...


Amelia Pond; the girl who waited.

The Silence is coming.

"He'll come back. He always does. He HAS to!"

Silence will fall when the Question is asked.

DOCTOR- "I just told you my name. There you go, River Song. Melody Pond. You're the woman who married me. And wife, I have a request. This world is dying and it's all my fault, and I can't bear it another day. Please, help me. There isn't another way.

RIVER SONG- "Then you may kiss the bride."

The question that must never be answered- Doctor who?

Tick tock goes the clock
He cradled and rocked her
Tick tock goes the clock
Till River kills the Doctor.

Tick tock goes the clock
He gave all he could give
Tick tock goes the clock
Now prison waits for River.


I'm sorry if you didn't understand any of that because you've never watched Doctor Who (which you should start doing right now), but I hope you enjoyed nonetheless. Which one is your favorite? I quite like the last one. 
So yeah, follow me on Instagram for more fun pictures, and see you later!

Review on the Flamingo Beach Dress

Hey guys! I will hopefully be back to regular posting now...I've missed you! 
Anyways, the last thing I got at the AGPNY in May was the Flamingo Beach Dress (that's on sale now!) It's originally $28 and comes with the dress, sandals, and a bracelet.

The top of the dress is halter style and the straps around the neck is the only part that velcros.

The print is very cute! It is a very pretty blue color with pink flamingos, starfish, seashells, and flowers, with a hint of gold sparkle. I like how it may seem little-girlish, but it's not.

The bracelet is just pink, white, and orange beads on elastic string with a starfish charm in the middle.

The shoes are probably my favorite part! They're easy to put on and are super cute. 

A look at the back.

Overall, I absolutely love this dress! It's limited edition (that's what it said in the catalog), so if you're thinking about buying it, do is soon! It's simple and cute for a nice summery outfit. :)


PS- sorry for the bad photos! I haven't had the time to redo them. >-<

What I've Been Up To

Hey guys! This is just going to be an update post of what I've been up to...

Photographing//my new EAH doll, Ashlynn Ella! She just looked so cute in the store, I had to get her. (I also recently put removable freckles on Evelyn so I had to take some pictures of her cuteness.)

Making//I sewed my (kinda) first doll tank top recently! It was really fun and I can't wait to do more. ^-^

Planning//to re-do my room! Ahhh, I can't wait!! Therefore, I am probably going to re-do my doll room too!

Reading//I'm currently re-reading the Harry Potter series and am about to start reading Heir by Kierra Cass (squeal!).

Listening//Fight Song by Rachel Platten. It is so amazing and inspiring!

Watching//Season 7 of Doctor Who and season 4 of Once Upon A Time!

Writing//trying to write a Sleeping Beauty retelling for a contest...err, we'll see how that goes.

Basically doing this whole summer//vacations, parties, amusement parks, bike rides, photoshoots...

Okay, so that's about it!

And a picture of Evelyn so this post is not entirely picture-less. :)

Should I do more posts like this?
Have an amazing evening/night/morning/afternoon!
