For those asking questions about the items in Blaire’s room, I’ve posted a video with those details. Link in profile!
👉 I’ll be posting a second video later today detailing Blaire’s craft supplies too. Stay tuned!
Is there such a thing as miniature scrapbooking!? Either way, I had fun coming up with a backstory for our Luciana to put in her scrapbook. We are in the process of reading her books so some of our Luci’s details might be a little off from the original.
I posted a flip through of #lucianavega ’s scrapbook in my stories if you’d like to take a peek at our Luci’s *about me* stories and space 👩🏼🚀 camp 🚀adventures.
🔹 If you see this after the story has expired, it’s saved to the ✂️ CRAFT highlights. . @americangirlbrand

More mini crafting today! I’m making a scrapbook/picture journal for #lucianavega , using pics from AG’s IG feed to tell the stories of why our Luci wants to become an astronaut and her adventures at Space Camp. Do you want to see the inside pages? 🚀
BONUS: swipe to see the finished product of one of the bits I was working on Tuesday. ❤️💛💚💙

I’m getting some crafting time in today for the next room reveal — Luciana’s. These are components to a *maker set* for Luci. I still need to finish the pieces (paint, add labels, etc). Any guesses what the set is?
ETA: I thought about videoing while I was crafting to show a relaxed type of crafting how-to. 🤔 However this type of crafting is a little all over the place for me. It’s a lot of fiddling and trial & error to get to the final product. I’m thinking that crafting videos will have to be more regimented. Like, once I’ve made the thing and like the result, I can make another later and video that process since it will be more straightforward. Anyone with videoing/crafting advice to share?! Kinda random oddball Q, I know.

Sorry for the lack of posts! We just moved last weekend and it's been super busy, but now we're all moved into our new home and have the Doll Home all set up again! Everybody is super glad to have all of their stuff out of boxes!
There are sooooo many projects and things I want to make and create for our doll world.
However, I feel like it takes me a long time to actually COMPETE these projects. I really struggle to limit what I’m working on to a single main project.
No matter how many lists I make or post-its I write to keep me on task, I get distracted by a new idea or thing to make.
Do you have any tips to get things done in a focused way??
I finished #blairewilson ’s desk! I’m really pleased with how it came out. Prior to painting, I added narrow flat craft sticks around the perimeter of the drawer fronts and also on the sides of unit to give the desk some character.
I sanded the first coat of spray paint and that made the finish much smoother with subsequent coats.
I also finished her inspiration board today too. It’s made out of foam core board, batting, muslin, ribbon and mini copper brads.
FYI: I thought the “Green Apple” spray paint would be a much closer match to Blaire’s kitchen pieces but GA is much more vibrant. I could probably do a brown stain wash over it to make it coordinate better, but I left it as is since I don’t plan to use them together.

It’s warmed up so painting Blaire’s desk is happening. I have a love/hate relationship with spray paint. ❤️💔

The basketball court is just so fun and I can picture her practicing and getting ready for a game. GO Julie!⛹️♀️🏀🏀 Let me know what you think I should do next!
Getting my craft on to make craft supplies for Blaire’s room. I’ve stuck my fingers together 👉🏻👈🏻with superglue only once today.
We think since Blaire is into lettering and event planning, she is also a crafter. And crafters need supplies!
Swipe 👉🏻 for close up pics.

Eva and her daddy made this, but it’s not finished yet. The coop is going to be elevated with a ramp and a run. 🐔 Eva is making me breakfast in bed again; she is the sweetest. I’ve got to get better by tomorrow! My wedding anniversary is tomorrow and then we’ve got to make it to Blaire’s release on New Years. 🐷🐔
This is my third attempt to try to post this because it would keep freezing every time I tried!🎁☂️🖼🕰💎❄️☃️⛄️🎄Anyway...here are some present ideas for your doll/doll room! I basically made or collected some doll-sized things and wrapped them up in boxes or tins:
The wall art 🖼is from @american.girl.ideas , the clock🕰calendar is from the American Girl Celebrations craft book but is basically a milk bottle lid with the pictures stuck onto it. The small doll and the parasol ☂️are from American Girl also.
The feather boa is a craft feathery ribbon thing I found! I also found the hippo toy, the little gold stones(they could either be sweets or decorations for the dolls’ rooms) and the shopkins toy that were the perfect size!😂The necklace/bracelet(I haven’t decided yet) is from a chocolate reindeer or Santa and I stuck a label on the tissue paper before wrapping it because I didn’t want it to tear it! #americangirldoll#americangirldollgifts#agdollcrafts#agdollcraft#agdolldiy#presentsfordolls
Samantha and Nellie are busy helping Mrs. Hawkins with holiday preparations. The lovely smells of hot chocolate, fresh baked pies, muffins roast turkey, and boiled eggs waft throughout the kitchen.
Samantha attempts to snag a warm cookie, fresh out of the oven. "But Nellie. Can't I have just one little cookie? Mrs. Hawkins won't miss it, and I'm so hungry." Samantha rubs her stomach hungrily as it growls rather loudly at that precise moment.
Nellie smiles and says "Samantha, You know very well that Mrs. Hawkins will miss it. Besides, the turkey is almost done and we don't want to spoil our dinner." Samantha sighs and finishes helping with the delicious foods, anxious for the holiday festivities to begin, and her stomach growls again.
Meanwhile, unbeknownst to the girls, Jip, the dog was sneaking a forgotten cookie of his own.
