Fantastic Doll Sites (and Youtube Channels)

About a year ago, I posted some of the doll sites I enjoy (here). But my blog-reading horizons have expanded greatly in 12 months, so here’s an updated list.

The Doll Wardrobe: A massive number of dolls live in this house including Maple, whose personality inspired Caroline’s. I recommend reading Maple’s Pirate Treasure Hunt for a further look into the craziness of the Doll Wardrobe.

Mommy and Gracie Show: This mother-daughter duo hunts for dolls in Walmart, Target, and Toys R Us (with occasional trips to the AG store). Daddy and Spats (the cat who love Draculaura) make frequent apperances on their funny videos.

The Toy Box Philosopher: Emily, the Toy Box Philosopher, does humor filled and detailed reviews of the diverse dolls she buys.  She loves to point out the grammatical mistakes on doll’s boxes and take a zillion pictures.

One Girl and Her Many Dolls is a fairly new discovery for me. The “One Girl” and her daughter love to play American Girl together, and document their ever changing collection. I really like the mom’s custom doll, Echo.

If you’re good with the sewing machine, you can save some bucks on patterns, let alone premade doll clothes at Arts and Crafts for Your American Girl Doll.  There are over 5 collections of doll crafts, ranging from Beach, to Harry Potter.

This is not new, but Our Dolls moved their web address (now they’re here)

Hope these blogs (and Youtube Channel) keep you busy with dolly humor for the rest of the summer,

Sewing Adventures with Friend R!

A couple of weeks ago, R and I got together and did a bit of sewing. We made the doll shorts pattern from here (and I made another version here).

The shorts R made. Great job!

And mine. Don’t you like the coordinating pockets?

The awesome shorts together again! Great sewing, R, and a happy weekend to the rest of you!

Friends, Romans and Countrymen,

Lend me your ears and eyes. For the Girl Scout Journey Breathe my sister and I made a slide show on house plants and their effect on indoor air quality.
