American Girl has come out with some new stuff! And Lea’s movie is available for pre-order. All pictures from AG’s website.
Lea’s Beach Picnic Set ($34) – This is so cute! A little overpriced, though. I love the little truffles and the drink. 😀
Lea Clark’s Adventure Tee for Girls ($28) – I’m excited that they have this for girls now! 🙂 The watercolor butterfly is beautiful.
Wish Bracelets ($8 each) – These are adorable! I like them all, but you could totally make one of these.
Lea Clark’s Beaded Necklace for Girls ($18) – Cute and colorful! 🙂
Lea’s Celebration Outfit ($34) – I love this outfit!!! Embroidery is one of my favorite things, and now Lea has a dress in her collection! (And it comes in girl sizes…) 😄
Stars and Stripes Set ($34) – I like the long sleeved one, but I’m probably not going to be getting this.
Spirit Squad Outfit ($28) – This is adorable! I love the color on that doll!
Pomeranian Puppy ($28) – CUTE!!! Gymnast03 likes it. And the green toy is new.
Fur-rocious Pet Outfit ($18) – This is really not my thing.
Galaxy Pet Bed ($26) – The cushion is cute, but I don’t like the stars very much.
Rainbow Collar and Leash ($12) – Cute, but overpriced.
There are new Bitty Baby things and some new books, as well. What is your favorite thing from the new release?

I’ve been making changes to the blog design, and I switched the theme. I liked the last theme, but there was something about it that I wanted to change. I’ll probably make a few more tweaks to this one. What do you think?
Now for the poll. I’m just curious who and what you want to see. 😀

Hello! I made a dress for our AG dolls a few months ago, and I saved this photo shoot for later. Bet you can guess what it is!
If you guessed wedding dress, you were right! 🙂
A bird’s-eye view.
I know… a lot of flower pictures. I was expirementing with different angles and such. 🙂
The embroidery on the train. It’s called a Montpelier rose.
And the back. It’s a lace up bodice, with an extra long ribbon. 🙂
What is she wearing?
Dress – homemade wedding dress, made by me
Shoes – Nellie’s party dress shoes (Retired)
Necklace – a ribbon I found
Which photo was your favorite? Have you ever made a wedding dress for your doll?

A few days ago, I posted Freckles and Flowers (a photoshoot). This is a tutorial for the hairstyle I did on Julia. I call it a “celtic knot”, but it’s also known as a five-strand braid. 😀
As usual, the first step is to mist your doll’s hair with water and brush it out. Make sure it’s tangle-free, otherwise seperating the sections will be very difficult. (I’ve learned this the hard way.) 🙂
Now seperate the hair into two sections, one above and one lower. Tie off the lower section.
Seperate the top section into five equal parts. Set the two left hand strands to the side.
Start braiding the two right hand strands and the center strand.
Then, take a strand from the braid and braid it with the two left hand strands.
Go back and forth, braiding first the right side, then the left. (You’ll probably need to do this a couple of times before you get the desired look.)
When you’ve reached the desired endpoint, tie off all the strands with an elastic.
Remember that bottom section? Untie the elastic, and arrange the hair however you wish.
I curled Julia’s hair a bit.
Now your doll has a beautiful celtic knot hairstyle! I hope the directions were clear enough, and feel free to comment with questions!
