A New Doll?!?

Hey guys! You're probably wondering, "Another doll?!?" And yes, I did get another doll! I was randomly searching eBay and found a Nellie doll for $49.99. I placed a bid and won her! Watch the video of me opening her here:

She is in AWESOME condition!









I can't wait to do more stuff with her! Who is your dream doll?

Doll Prom Week- Jewelry, Hair Accessories, and More!

Hi! Now that your doll has a dress, she needs some jewelry and accessories! Here are some good example to get you started.

Necklaces: Necklaces top off the whole outfit! As you can see, I have some more flashy ones and simple ones, but they are all silver or pearl.

Doll Prom Week- Easy DIY Dresses!

Hi! Since proms are usually around this time, I thought it would be fun to do a doll prom week! First you need a dress, so I'm going to show you a very simple way to make one!

You will need:
*A doll
*Human skirts (shorter ones are best)
*Safety pins

1) Lay your skirt out flat. I'm still going to wear these skirts, so that's why I'm not cutting them.

2) Start wrapping it around your doll.

3) Bring the ends together in the back and safety pin them.

Here is Evelyn's finished dress!

Dakota's dress

Emily's dress

Caroline's dress

And I made Nahji's out of some fabric since she's too skinny for a skirt.

Elizabeth is wearing a dress I already had.
What are your dolls wearing?

Craft- Make Doll Cereal!

Hey! Real quick, I want to mention that I finally updated the "The Dolls" page and included a lot of information about all of them! Check it out here!

**

Hi everyone! Since our state testing started this week, we need a good breakfast, so I decided to make some healthy cereal! You can make it colorful and sugary, but I made mine bland and boring. xD This also helps to reuse some of your old Easter eggs that might have broken!
Let's get started!

You will need:
*The rounder part of an Easter Egg
*Something to fill the bottom of your egg (doesn't matter what color, you could use a cotton ball, pom pom, or a tissue like I did)
*White foam
*Foam, the color of your choice, for the cereal
*White puffy paint (you could use brown for chocolate milk if you so desire)
*Hole punch
*Scissors
*A button for the bottom if your egg needs help balancing 
*Hot glue gun/hot glue

1) Fill the bottom of your egg with the object of your choice.

2) Trace the rim of the cup onto the white foam and cut it out.

3) Glue it inside.

It should now look something like this! Don't worry if there are cracks, you can fill those in with the puffy paint later.

4) Now punch out lots of little circles out of the foam color of your choice. I punched out too many!

5) Squeeze your puffy paint on top and swirl it around. It helps if you have a toothpick to help you.

6) Now stick your circles into the "milk". Place them randomly so they look more realistic! It's also okay if some of the circles are broken, as that would look natural.
7) Glue a button on the bottom if your egg won't balance well.
Let dry, and you're done!





When is/was your state testing?

Don't cry, craft!

Plus some pretty flowers. :)
