AGI has 2 new craft and I love them. The first one is a cat litter box and the second one and my favorite of the 2 is a Science Lab corner room. Go to AmericanGirlIdeas.com to check them out.

Check this page out I love it. So cute and fun for the dolls and girls to play with and she still has more posts that will be part of this craft project. http://brandyshappyhome.com/the-doll-room/unicorn-cafe/

 

I found a few new My Life As items that a few fellow bloggers found in stores that were not on the website. Here are the Pictures.

We have been busy with our first full week for KayKay being back in school. KayKay has open house at her school on Tuesday I have pre-scheduled the BOM post to go up and I am half way through this months book and will probably finish this week. AJ starts the 10th grade on Monday. That sentence made me feel old. LOL.
Now for the winner of FW. This week we had a few confusing votes because a few of you combined the names of the dolls when placing your votes. A few of you only liked the post and didn’t vote. Please remember to comment which doll you vote for or I will not know and please make sure you type the correct name so that I don’t get confused as to who you are voting for.

Thanks and the winner is Snowy.

I hope I didn’t sound harsh and if I did I don’t mean too. Also can you please comment on the BOM, ROM, and COM I would like to know your input and if you enjoy the posts. I am going to start doing a Weekly Question (WQ) post and I will put it up on Sundays starting tomorrow. Please comment to it I would really like to get to know all of our Fans/Followers. Below is a revised schedule. Thank you all and that is all for this week. As always we love you all and your support and have a blessed day.

Here are a few things I have found this week:

This is the American girl press release.
http://news.mattel.com/news/american-girl-debuts-custom-doll-and-apparel-making-experience-with-never-before-released-options-and-over-one-million-design-combinations

I found more info on the new Create-Your-Own line.

http://lissieandlilly.blogspot.com/2017/07/create-your-own-custom-american-girl.html?m=1

My fellow Blogger Small Dolls in a Big World posted this and I can’t wait to find out more about the new GOTY for 2018.

http://smalldollsinabigworld.com/new-releases/goty-2018-luciana-release-day-tee-leaked/
Some BIG news was discovered today!
Instagram user Poppets and Posies has found a release day tee on Ebay for the Girl of the Year 2018: Luciana Vega!
There have been several rumors floating around that the next GOTY is interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, or STEM. The author of  GOTY 2018 has written several books/series with characters interested in STEM as well. This shirt tops the cake. Luciana’s character/storyline will be connected to outer space in some way, whether this be through astronomy, or space travel. You can really tell that even though the graphic is a heart, it’s not super GIRLY, like most AG clothing. I hope this means that her collection will be focused more on STEM projects and such.
The name Luciana originated in Europe, or more specifically Rome. It is a popular name in Spain and Italy. I wouldn’t be surprised if part of Luciana’s family used to live in Europe!
I felt as if this was a little early to be finding clothing items for the next GOTY, but we actually have found very little so far compared to years before. I’m excited to see what leaks the future holds.

More info from a different blogger about GOTY 2018

http://poppetsandposies.blogspot.com/
Who is Luciana? Where is she from? What will be her themes, stories, and adventures? Her wardrobe and accessories?

Could this tee be for Luciana?

In favor for it being Luciana’s tee is that the building facades look like the old style “Spanish” facades from places like San Antonio. The stars, while an American Girl nod to their own logo, also point toward this tee depicting Texas which often uses the star in its logos and themes.

Two big states for space industry are Florida and Texas, but considering we recently have Maryellen from Florida, having Luciana’s story set in Texas makes a whole lot of sense!

Finally, with a big thank you to “dollsbetweenus”–Luciana is Spanish origin and means “light of the moon.” How perfect! It all seems to fit together that perhaps is Luciana is not only of Hispanic and/or Spanish heritage and that she loves space, space travel, astronomy–but that her story takes place in a state where Spanish and Hispanic culture is so integral to its history.
Luciana Vega. Space theme. 2018.

The author of the GOTY 2018 books is Erin Teagan, a children’s book author who holds a masters degree in science (unspecified) and has worked in a biochemistry lab.

On our side of thing here at home in Tennessee we have been getting ready for school to start back and it starts on Tuesday August 1. I cant believe how early they start beck now. Ok so this week we had to go get KayKay’s school laptop ( it’s her first year with it ) and was only supposed to take 90 minutes, but ended up taking us a little over 3 hours from start to finish. She also now has a school issued backpack for the laptop so no new backpack for school this year. When we get some new school items I will post pictures.

On the American Girl side of things I am a little upset with the way I get catalogs from them. I have to constantly request the catalog and when I did at the beginning of June when I was seeing the new one on different blogs with the cover that had the Create-Your-Own cover and the one I received was for March 2017 issue. then I sent them an e-mail about it and they sent me a July 2017 catalog but it is different then the one I was hoping to get. I will post pictures but I still have not received the newest Create-Your Own catalog and I don’t understand why I keep having to request them. Does anyone else have these problems? Should I send another e-mail to AG? Let me know your thoughts on these 2 questions. I also want to request everyone comment on our FW blogs to vote because I am no longer getting votes.

I want to request that anyone that prays to pray for my cousin he is very sick and in the hospital. He had just lost his wife and then he all of a sudden got very sick. His blood pressure and tempeture keeps going high then really low and they are not sure exactly what it is. Last thing for this week is there was no votes for FW so I don’t have a winner. I will talk to you all soon and hope everyone has a blessed day.

 

Here are the pictures of the catalogs I received.

7-15-17 Hi everyone. I hope you have all been doing ok. We had to change things around this time for the WB because we went on vacation to go camping. We had so much fun and I am sorry this is later than I had originally planned but we ended up staying an extra night on our trip and then when we got back the internet started acting up. Well even after all that we still got to post so that’s a good thing. So our camping trip was so much fun. When I say camping I mean no electronics and a natural except a little boom box, tents, flashlights and propane grill. We had a 12 person tent for the 4 of us to share, and a shower tent that we use as and outhouse. We ate hot dogs, hamburgers, and smores. The guys chopped wood for our fire and KayKay fished, she caught a few sticks but no fish. KayKay made a fire pit for the dolls that looked like ours. She also got to feed ducks. I hope you enjoy the pictures and videos.

7-22-17  Hi Guys this weeks WB is going to have everything I missed while we were camping and having internet problems. Some of the stuff in this part of the post you may have already seen but never hurts to post it so everyone gets to see it all.

I found a few posts on AGNews that were interesting here they are.

Most of the pictures from the next part are from my fellow AG blogger Living A Doll’s Life. They posted some cool new items from Target, Micheal’s and Hobby Lobby. I also found some information on the new OG boy doll that was posted on Instagram by thejaysquared. I also found a leaked photo of Nanea’s Mini doll I don’t remember where I got it though because I got it before we left for Vacation.

Once again no one voted for our FW so no winner . If we are not going to have people vote I may stop doing it. It takes time and planning to do the post for the FW and if I am not going to do that I can take that time and planning to do something else for everyone I was thinking of doing a different post everyday for everyone but I want your opinions should I keep FW and do you all want me to do a different post every day that is picked by the day of the week?

Not a lot has happened for us this week but have had a few disappointments but I am not going to go into that. Well I am going to be planning our family camping trip this week so I will let you all know when we are going to do that because I will not be posting while we are gone on it we do the very low tech camping and love to just enjoy family time and nature.

 

Ok everyone talk to you soon and thanks as always for supporting our blog.

WB 6-24-17 Part 2

Sorry I had to split the WB into 2 parts its just the new AG stuff has a lot of images.

Fourth : American Girl has changed there website and it looks really good. I took several screen shots for it. All the new items are exciting. The one new item I am the most excited about is the Grand Hotel and accessories for it. The second thing I am exited about is the new Truly Me accessories set. They also have all kinds of new outfits and accessories from Truly Me. Found this on AGDN New Kitten from AG arriving at COSTCO stores on 6-22-17 . It is so cute. Wellie Wishers have a new pet his name is Norman and he is a Gopher. He will be released on Thursday 6-22-17 and he reminds me of the Ground hog in the movie Ground Hogs Day. Look at the post about Nanea I saw on AGDN I am so excited. AGDN was also talking about the new look anticipation on 6-21-17 I have screen shots of that below also. I am sorry if it seems a little disorganized but from where I have had this cold I am kind of disorganized this week. LOL. Ok that is all for now talk to you next week.

 

P.S.- I was getting ready to post this and something else very interesting on a fellow bloggers page. A sneak peak at the new AG Truly Me Custom catalog I can’t wait for it now that I have seen this post. Here is the link http://www.dolldays.com/single-post/2017/06/23/Leaked-Truly-Me-Customization-Line-Catalogue

Hi Girls and Guys. Sorry to say this week we do not have a winner of FW because we didn’t get any votes. It has been a slow week for us at home due to me having a summer cold and the weather being either so hot you can’t breath or raining and storming. Well just because the dolls and the people haven’t been doing much doesn’t mean we don’t have anything to tell you about because we do and there is a lot. I also wanted to tell everyone I am sorry the Photo Shoot never happened as was planned but life happens sometimes and I may be able to get one up for the next month. We have a few issues going on right now and we are trying to get them taken care of. I will be doing a special post this we not sure the day yet but it will be to tell a little about our family. I also may be getting a new phone this week so hopefully the pictures will look better when I get that. We are currently working on a few new things for the BLOG and I will get the info on those things closer to there completion. We also are very sorry our COM didn’t get posted. The phone we took the pictures on messed up and we lost all our step by step photos.
