Revised Favorites and Progress!

Okay, so I changed my mind about my favorite AG dolls... So in no particular order my dolls or wish they were my dolls list;

Elizabeth - Whom I have and renamed Angelique
Lanie GOTY 2010 - Who I'm getting for Christmas and will probably rename... Maybe something French. Though at the moment I'm calling her, Laine.
Kit - (and her friend Ruthie, maybe the best friend collection is in my future... Distant future, but still.) I would rename them, Lara and Maggie. Again after Dark Shadows.

Julie! (and Ivy)- I super love the 70's right now... ABBA! (not to be mistaken with the semi-terrible movie/play/musical, Mama Mia!) If I get Julie I might rename her, Agnetha, Anna, Anni-Frid or ABBA... Yeah, I know... I would also want all of her accessories, especially her Floral Jumpsuit.

Lindsey GOTY 2001 - I have no idea why she was so disliked when she came out... If I had been more interested in dolls at that time I might have asked for her. She kind of looks like me, except I have black eyes... They are so not blue.

Nellie - Again, if I had been aware of my love of dolls at that time I would probably have asked for her, before she was retired.

Surely you have noticed my themes, blonds or short hair. So strange... I never particularly thought about my liking blonds, actually I used to think I didn't like blonds at all... Don't kid yourself, KJo. Just look at your AG choices and Barbies for that matter.

Anyway about the afore mentioned progress. I have made four out of five gifts for my family! Just one more to go. I have also made two gifts and bought a gift for a dear friend of mine. And even made a present for her daughter. So I have to get those things in the mail. Hopefully today.
I also hope my package from AG Fun arrives today.

Just another post

So I've decided to try and knit a hat for my little brother for Christmas. I'm also going to try and finish a present for my older brother and I've working on a blanket for my mom. I already made a hat for my dad... I just need to figure something out for my sister.

My four favorite AG dolls;


Elizabeth (my Angelique)



I would really love to have all four of them sometime in the future...

I also really like Rebecca, Julie, Ivy and one of the My American Girl dolls. But I'm thinking eight dolls+ is kind of pushing it ;)

I haven't posted in a long time

And for no real reason either.

Let's see an update...

I got my first AG doll for my birthday this year! I got Elizabeth, but I renamed her Angelique after the character on Dark Shadows. I already had a Springfield 18" doll, I believe I've mentioned her before, Josette also named after a character on Dark Shadows. And then a bit more recently I bought a Journey Girls doll at Toys 'R' Us. I had a Visa giftcard and my mom had a Toys 'R' Us giftcard, so I practically got her for free. And they were having a sale where if you bought the doll you got a free outfit. So that was pretty awesome! I got Taryn, her new name is Evangeline. Because it's a French name and that seems to be a pattern with me.

I've decided not to over work myself by going crazy on Christmas gifts this year. I do hope to finish a couple, but so far I haven't done anything to that means.

Lets see... I won NaNoWriMo Youth Writers Program again this year! I really like my writing style. It's seems very inspired by the, Twilight Zone, Outer Limits, Tales of the Unexpected, X-Files and more recently added to my repertoire of the abnormal, Night Gallery.

So anyway I have other things to do I suppose....

Merry Christmas!
