Kaya's Tepee and more!

well its that time again. Yep, I've decided to update my blog lol.

A few weeks ago my family and I finally went into Anchorage for the first time in like forever. Anchorage, for those of you who dont know, is really were everything is. We go every few months to go to Sams and the craft stores. When we went to Micheal's, they had a whole bunch of new American Girl Craft stuff. One of the things I found was Saige's dog! Here it is!

Isnt he cute? These craft kits are really neat. They come with everything you need to make the craft, plus instructions.

A few weeks ago, I was browsing a website called Disney Dreaming. They do alot of updates on disney movies and what not. I found this picture of Selena Gomez, wearing a pretty cool outfit, that I could recreate it for Saige.

Here is the picture of Selena Gomez. 

And here is my version of it, for Saige. I used patterns from Liberty Jane for the outfit. and made the necklace and bracelet. All in all, I think it came out really well. :) 

Oh and I also made a tepee for Kaya! Its not exactly finished yet. But here is the beginning stage of it. 

I want to make her a little drum, a fireplace, and a few other things. Plus I want to see if I can get the tepee to look a bit better. But for now, it looks pretty cute :) 

Oooh yes, I almost forgot. I also made a new case for my kindles! I decided that because I now have a Kindle Fire and a Kindle Reader, I needed one of those fold over cases. With two pockets. Only, I also put a piece of felt in between the pockets so the kindles screens dont get scratched. I really like how it turned out.

And finally because I forgot to post it earlier, I made another cute outfit for Saige a few weeks ago. It started with just a pair of overalls and somehow ended up to having lots of other aspects. I kinda got the idea from my Mary Jane Farm magazines lol. 

Isnt it cute? Inside the bag there is all sorts of little accessories I made for her. Maybe one of these days I'll take a picture of those too. Some of the patterns I used for this outfit are also from Liberty Janes. Except the overalls. Thats from a simplicity pattern. And the apron i made myself. The bag is from American Girl: Molly's patterns.

Cyanne and Ponyo Ramen!

Location: Bedroom
Music: They Can't take that away from me ~ Me & Orson Welles soundtrack
Mood: Sleepy
Book: Beautiful Chaos

I thought today, I would post about something other than American Girl lol. Which seems to be what I've  been posting alot about lately. Dont ask me why. 

Anyway, sometime, last month, I came across the cutest little doll at Target for five dollars! She was in the clarence isle after the Christmas Sales and I had to have her. Her name is Cyanne: Vival La France. She is a La Dee Da doll. 

Isnt she cute? She's supposed to be 16 years old and a fashion designer. I love her little hair fastener. Each little doll also comes with a craft you can make. Which is totally awesome for someone like me who loves to make crafts. Speaking of which, I did make something the other day. 

Yeah the picture is upside down. Oh well. Anyway, for lunch at work the other day I decided to try and make Ponyo Ramen! Which I found instructions for off Feast of Fiction which has turned into my favorite youtube channel lately. Here is the video! 

It makes for a nice lunch at any rate. Quick and easy especially if everything is already cut up and made. I suggest everyone try it lol.

Wow two months????

Mood: Chipper

Wow, has it really been two months since I last posted here? I'm such a horrible blogger lately. I dont even know why. I'm still writing posts at panhistoria and doing lots of crafts. I'm still reading my books and even writing little diddys of my own. I've also gotten two new American Girl Dolls. So one would think that I would have posted all this. Instead, I've been lazy. Oh well. here's to trying to start to blog more lol.

Okay so on with the new stuff. Like I said, I have recently gotten two new American Girl Dolls. I bet you're wondering what ones I got. Drum roll please.... Dum, Dum, Dum... LOL

Yep, that's right! The first or second week of January, I was able to get the New American Girl Doll, American Girl of the year 2013: Saige! She's so sweet. I love her. She has freckles and comes with an adorable little ring as an accessory, and best of all, her ears are pierced! She loves horses and art. And she lives in New Mexico! Plus, there is going to be a movie about her! Staring none other than Jane Seymour! I cant wait for that!

Now on to the next doll! lol.

A few weeks ago I also got Kaya! I have been wanting her for a while, and I'm so glad I finally got her. She is a Nez Pierce Girl from 1764. So far I've only read her first book. But in it, she gets into so much trouble. I cant wait to get the next books. Isnt she a sweet doll? here are some Nez Pierce Words from the book.

aa-heh: Yes thats right
Hanyawa''aat: The Creator
Katsee- yow-yow: Thankyou
Nimiipuu: The People or the Nez Pierce name for themselves.
Tawts: Good
Tawts may- we: Goodmorning

Okay, now for the crafts I've been doing. Here is the first one!

Yep, I attempted a Silhouette of Caroline and her skiff! A skiff is a tiny boat. I found this awesome tutorial on how to do this on youtube. I think it turned out pretty well, considering how I havent done something like this. The lettering could be better. But all and all its a good craft. here is the youtube video.

I also made a couple Sew and Shares from American Girl. They're so cute and easy to make. I love making them and giving one to my sister lol.

Finally, I also attempted my hand at making a tiny rag doll. She turned out so cute. I named her Little Susie because she's only 6 inches tall.

Enverything I made for Susie's outfit is mostly from my own workings. I only had a pattern for the doll and dress. She's so cute. She may become my new mascot lol.

Oh and last but not least, I finally found a Shirley Temple movie I have been looking for, for ages on youtube. Its one I havent seen yet and I finally watched it last night! Here it is! Its a great movie. Not as good as some of her others. But still great!

Wew, that ended up being a long post. Well, thats what I get for not posting in two months. I am going to really try and make it once a day now. 

Happy Valentines Day everyone!
