Create Your Own American Girl

It's no longer just a rumor- American Girl is creating a line of customizable dolls!

It's been a complaint from fans for a long time, that most people seem to think that American Girl allows you to design your own dolls.

This has not been true- until now!

We don't know for sure when the line will be released. There are lots of rumors that it is being delayed due to website issues.

But it really is happening!

There is a page for the dolls on the official American Girl website now.

There is even a video, with somewhat badly designed mock ups pf the possible dolls!

It is time to get excited!

I do not have a doll design in mind, but I am definitely looking forward to seeing the dolls that others create.

It is very exciting that you can now get a medium skinned Jess mold! There are so many pretty Kanani customs out there.

The price seems fair to me, too.

I am definitely excited for the release of this line!

MCM Meet Up!

After I left MCM, I met up with two more doll friends from the Internet. After meeting Neth for the first time, that makes three of my Internet friends that I got to see!

I met up with two members of American Girl Collectors, Elewys and Marycontraria.

We had a good time talking.

Well, I did get lost on foot at one point, but they came and rescued me! Yay for friends with a better sense of direction than me!

If it hadn't been for cell phones, they might have never seen me again. Yay for modern technology!

Here is Anne hanging out with Marycontraria's dolls.

Frances is the Kaya doll, Nora is the cute custom doll with short brown hair, and the Camille doll is Nora's younger sister.

They look like they are having as much fun as I did!

More MCM comments

I found out today that the MCM benefit sale had arranged for alternate parking elsewhere in the business park where the warehouse is. Shoppers were expected to park there and take the shuttle to the warehouse.

I would have LOVED to do this, but alas, they did not share that information in a way that actually reached me.

The information was in an e-mail sent out the day before the sale, and I read it the day after the sale.

I did not see any signs informing people of this parking opportunity.


The items that I bought were:

JLY 62

Lea's Celebration Dress

mini Special Edition Kaya

Melody's Peplum Dress

Melody's Bedtime Accessories

Samantha's Lemonade Pitcher

I will be writing more detailed posts on all of these items.

I read that at some point, they started selling Melody's Bedtime Accessories without the radio.

I opened mine up, and it does have the radio! Yay!

I have also been told that the Costco food court was really crowded later on in the day, so I was lucky that I was the only one ordering food when I was there.

That Costco is apparently really popular and needs more parking, though.

Overall, I think I was really lucky to have the experience that I did at MCM.

I am crossing my fingers that my luck holds next year!

MCM Sale 2017

Today, as you may be aware, was the Madison Children's Museum Benefit sale! And that means dolls!

I was very lucky to get to go.

I am going to MCM this weekend, so the last thing I need to do is buy a new doll online.

Reader, that is exactly what I did.

Georgie of Northbound Dolls posted this American Girl doll #15 that had been mislabeled as Josefina on etsy.

She looks like she is in really gorgeous condition.

I originally considered getting #15 as Anne instead of #6, back when American Girls of Today had just been released. I have retained a soft spot for her.

And this doll was under a hundred dollars, and comes with Josefina's loom! Squee!

My collection is growing more than I ever planned, but how could I say no to her?

I can't wait for her to get here!

Felicity's Wardrobe: Felicity's Summer Outfit

Well, it's summer, and sure enough Felicity has changed into her summer dress. She says it is quite warm enough in this dress without wearing winter clothes, thank you very much.
