Nadira is home!

     Hey! As you may know, I recently purchased a TS minifee Mirwen... She came a few weeks ago without a faceup, eyes or wig-- Which is a first for me. I've never received an "incomplete" doll in the mail, so it was challenging for me to bond with her since I couldn't even see what she really looked like. But, I sent her out for a faceup and got her some lovely Mako eyes and made her an alpaca wig (which isn't quite finished, but close enough for pictures!) So, here she is!

     Nadira (Na-dear-a) is an orphan in Afghanistan. She is in the process of being adopted by Camryn and her family. They got to meet for the first time today, at Nadira's orphanage. Here are some pictures! (Nadira speaks English, she has been learning the language since she was five)
Sorry about the sideways pictures...

Another Look for Sarah Moore

     Hey! Long time no post... Sorry about that! The good news it, I finished my finals week for my first quarter in college... Now I'm on winter break! :D But, with good news, usually comes a bit of bad news, I've been on a bit of a cleaning spree, and I've decided to get rid of a couple of my American Girl dolls. Rebecca and Ana are gone. so are Molly and Addy. Now, I only have Kit, Susan, Lucy and Sarah. I was originally planning on selling Sarah as well, but I had so much fun picking her out with my cousin that I just couldn't part with her. So, I decided to start moving her around in time periods, and she fits pretty well in all of them! its a bit of a stretch for her to be set in the 30's, but I think its do-able. But, she also looks great as a modern gal. I have this old bitty baby outfit from a Cyber Monday sale at American Girl from forever ago that isn't really even worth selling. So, I put some pieces of it on her, and with a little bit of adjusting-- Wow. Ah-dor-a-ble. Take a look for yourselves!





Thanks for looking!

AMTC Updates

     Hey! We got back from MN last night, and it is great to be home! I love being at the farm, and hanging out with my cousins, but it is nice to be back to my daily schedule. Volleyball starts this week, and its my last full week of school, so I'm scrambling trying to finish papers, projects and other things.

     AMTC. I'm working towards fundraising for AMTC, I need to raise $3,800.00 by July 2014. Not an impossible goal, but its going to be a long way getting there. This morning, I sat up a page on Gofundme.com-- Basically you can read my story and send donations to support my cause. Here is the link: http://www.gofundme.com/5jdms8?preview=1  Please take a moment to check it out!

     Regarding my training for AMTC, I am working on writing monologues so I can do the acting showcase at SHINE, as well as memorizing songs for the singing portion. Also, I am trying to learn to play the ukulele so I can possibly play at SHINE, but that may be a long shot. I can play two songs so far-- Neither very well! :)

     Anyways, thank you for your support-- Hopefully I can upload some videos to youtube soon, I would like to do a couple of song covers! Thanks for looking!
