Changeing...always Changeing

 lately ive been thinking alot.
 About my blog and how i cant seem to stay up to date with it, 
iv taken my doll's room down and packed it up, putting my dolls in a save place.
i still love my dolls, but when it comes down to how i want to spend my time, id rather be working on my crafts...
im thinking i'll be making this a more personal blog, rather then a doll blog, it'll be a crafting/thrifting/collecting
 type thing.
Im deleting old posts, and starting with a blank slate
leaving this one here, for....oh idont know a week or so.
 good bye.
see you on the other side guys and gals

Photoshoot, and a try at editing

The other day I found time to do a  photo shoot, and edit some of my older pictures,
I thought i'd share.

here's the  original shot,
and the edit.

this one was taken with the the daylight.
I wanted it to look like the middle of the night,
I think i achived that.

i wanted this one to feel like it was taken some time ago. 
this one WAS taken some time ago, 

I cropped it, and brought the dead grass back to life. :)

Thanks for visting!

School jumper review

So about a month ago I made an eBay purchase.
I found the School jumper by American girl for about $24
the outfit was originally released in 1996 and retired in 2001 
(that's what i could gather from my research .)
it came with the shirt, jumper, tights, boots and the head band.
here is the outfit on my custom Marie-Grace doll
The jumper has princess seams on the front and back,
which i LOVE but didn't show vary well in the picture,
It has a functioning zipper of the front, 
I love these boots, they have a rubber sole and those little plastic things on the end of shoelaces.
The tights are so cute too, they have a ribbed knit texture and has light specks of color init...again that didn't pick up on camera. 
This outfit has so much detail and I'm really happy with it, I think it is a perfect piece for any collection.
 I like how she looks in the dark colored clothes with her hair so dark...makes her eyes look bluer.
 Here i tried my hand at photo editing.
 I hope you enjoyed this post, if you did leave me a comment or two, 
whats you favorite outfit for your american girl? 
I need to rename my doll, any suggestions?
