5 thing to do with your doll in the summer

Here are 5 things you can do with your doll in the summer!

1. Do a photoshoot of your doll. Take some pictures of your doll in her cutest outfits.

2. Take your doll on a vacation. Remember to bring your camera, too!

3. Dress your doll in different outfits. She won't want to stay in the same outfit the whole summer :)

4. Watch movies with your doll. Make sure to watch the American Girl movies. >

5. Take her wherever you go. She'll enjoy that!

Hopefully these tips were helpful! Danielle

AGcessories Giveaway



Talia kindly donated some doll food for a giveaway. Her shop is called AGcessories. Please go check it out! Thank you SO much! Here is some info on Talia:

Dolls have always been a big part of my life.  As a child, I collected barbies and that continued into my teens. That was before I knew of American Girl.  I have also been a crafter since my teen years.  Now that I have a daughter who loves American Girl, I have found a way to combine dolls and crafting.  I loved making accessories for her dolls so much that I wanted to open a shop to make them for other girls (and grown ups ;)) to enjoy. Each doll item I make is crafted with lots of love and care, and I try to make sure every item is unique and fun.  My daughter's AG dolls gives me an excuse to play them with her. She is almost 9, and I have a 4 year old boy who occassionally takes one of his sisters' doll food items and feeds it to one of his characters. When I am not spending time with my kids or making doll things, I enjoy reading, organizing, and I love google. I google everything! Thank you so much for taking time to read a little about me and my shop!

Now onto the prize!

If you win you get:


American Girl Food Milk Carton

A carton of milk for your doll




American Girl Food S'mores

Hey y'all!
 I just took pictures of my newest doll Caroline! She is gorgeous. Her curls are stunning. Her eyes are flawless! I really recommend her! She
is a great doll. If she would be your 1st or 2nd doll, I wouldn't get her
unless you know how to take care of curly doll hair.
Here is the photoshoot:
