7 Days of Noel #2- Holiday Hair Pins

Hey guys! Technically, this isn't really nerdy, but you know, if you have a friend that's going to the Yule Ball at Hogwarts, then this would be a great gift idea for her right? XD This is super easy, and great as a last minute option!

You will need:
*Some beads (I like to use three)
*A bobby bin or barrette
*Paper or thin cardboard
2) Glue the beads on. (I like to do mine biggest to smallest)

3) Slide it off the paper.
And you're done!

These are all the ones I made. Which one is your fave?

Nahji modeled one for me.



Plus some tree bokeh. :) 

Hope you enjoyed!

7 Days of Noel #1- Our Holiday Decor

This year, the theme I decided on for 12 Days of Noel is A Nerdy Christmas. Basically, lots of nerdy gifts and treats like Harry Potter, Star Trek, LOTR, Doctor Who, etc. 
This is our space so far!

Here is our tree.


We got the miniature Nativity from Cross in The Woods on vacation.

It's really cute and tiny!




Sorry this was a short post, but I've been really busy and still am. The pictures aren't the best quality either, because the sun has been nowhere to be seen and the lighting is HORRIBLE. Well, hopefully I will have a better post tomorrow!

Our Christmas Card + Updates

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't posted in a while but I have been really busy. Since I am so busy, I have decided to keep 12 Days of Noel to 7 Days. Sorry, but I am really stressed and I need to cut it down a little bit. Hope you understand. <3

But, today I made my doll's Christmas card, so you can print it out for your dolls!


Merry Christmas!

Major HELP!!!

Okay, my dilemma- I don't know which doll to ask for Christmas!! I'm thinking of Caroline or Isabelle. If I really want to get Isabelle, I don't have another chance, while I could get Caroline later. I'm also thinking of Rebecca or Samantha, but probably not this time. I need to choose soon! What do you think??
~Thanks, Claire

Happy Thanksgiving // Grateful Blogger Tag

Hey guys! Just want to tell you... HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
What do you do for the holidays?

Now I have an award...

Rules:

1.Thank the person who nominated you, they will surely appreciate it! Also, leave a link back to the person who nominated you.
2. Write about ten things you are thankful for. Here is the tricky part though; you can’t just say you are grateful for gum or video games or whatever “little” thing it is you want to discuss. Think deeply about what is really really important to you, such as family, or life in it of itself. Explain why you are thankful for those things.
3.Tag ten other bloggers; our goal is to tag everyone!! Comment on the blogs you nominate so that they will know that they were tagged!
4.Add the pic above to your side bar or award page thanking the people who tagged you.


A couple people nominated me, but I don't know who, because I wrote a long list of all the tags I had gotten and who awarded me, but I lost it. Typical. Well...here are the things I am grateful for.

1) Family- Pretty self explanatory I suppose...
2) Friends- All my real life friends and internet friends, thank you. Without you, my life would, well, suck.
3) Blogger- Blogger has helped me meet amazing people and helped me learn things, grow, and cherish the little things. Thank you Google, you are awesome...sometimes. ;)
4) Dolls- Without dolls, I have no idea what I would be doing right now...they have helped me sooo much in my life.
5) Laughter- Even just a little laugh with your friends can help you forget all your troubles...I am thankful for that.
6) The seasons- Every new season is amazing and wonderful, and beautiful and...*gushing with fandom* 
7) Memories- I am a very very nostalgic girl and I think memories are the things to hold on to, and I believe in cherishing that moment before it is gone...
8) Freedom- I am glad that I live in this time period and in America...thank you
, I don't know how I would live in a place like the Middle East.
9) School- Even though I hate is sometimes, school is important and I feel lucky to go to a good school.
10) God- Without Him, I wouldn't even be writing this. He has helped me so much, I don't even know how to write it...

Okay so, if you want that award, you can take it, but a lot of people have already gotten it so..I don't know who to pick. I have SOOO many awards to get through, so that is probably what I will be posting for the rest of my life now...;P
And sorry this was kinda brief, I have to go!

Dakota's Halloween Costume

Dakota was Katniss Everdeen from the first Hunger Games movie, you know, when she's in the chariot with Peeta.

You know...this part. :)

I got this idea ever since I went to AGP Columbus back in March, when I saw Isabelle's black unitard.

I made her cape and hair piece.




It's kinda tight but...it's a doll. :)








Have you seen or want to see Mockingjay?? I'm going to see it tomorrow and I'm sooo excited!!!
