She's here

I received my #22 late on Tuesday night and was not able to take a photo until today. Her name is Georgia Peach and she will be my southern belle. She is my birthday gift from my hubby. Enjoy!  photo 20141114_153837_zps9fc55573.jpg

Sheldon and Amy

I have them sitting on my printer. I felt that was the perfect spot for them. :) Amy came with glasses, but as we are hoping to buy our first home and move in the next few months, I didn't want to lose them so I left them in her box for now. I think that the photos on the Tonner website do not do her justice. She is quite pretty in person. Enjoy!  photo 20141107_133624_zps1ac2e33b.jpg If the photo looks wonky, photobucket is not being nice right now.

Birthday

Yesterday was my birthday and hubby made it wonderful. He had to work all day, which is normal and doesn't upset me at all. He took my mother, the kids and I out to dinner and then gifted me with an embroidery hoop for my new embroidery/sewing machine, a couple of cd's, several gift cards for fabric and beads and since he always has a hard time ordering MyAG dolls, (he doesn't know how to order the non-historical dolls and when he puts in the product code, it says it doesn't exist), he told me to go ahead and order the doll and he would pay for it. So I ordered a #22 MyAG doll as she looks exactly like my late best friend who had passed away just days after my 20th birthday. I know I still owe you a picture of Sheldon and Amy and will get that posted asap. Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Happy Halloween!!

I hope everyone had a happy and safe Halloween! My kids had fun. Hubby always takes them out as I can't walk for any distance due to my back and they practically run to every house. It is tradition to go to my mom's house and the kids go around there and I stay with my mom and give out candy. :)

AGPlaythings Halloween Swap

As usual, I participated in the Halloween swap. It is my favorite swap of the year. This year, my swap partner wanted Elsa from frozen. So, I bought the pattern, got the fabric and sewed away. :) Lanie decided to model it for me.  photo 20141015_112041_zps1985600a.jpg I had asked for anything relating to either Final Fantasy or Zelda video games. These are my favorite games to play and I have been playing them since they first came out, many, many years ago. (Shhh, my age must remain a secret!) LOL. I received a very beautiful Zelda costume, unfortunately, in transit, the box got squished and some pieces were broken. After several attempts to fix it, I managed to get the pieces to stay together, albeit, a bit tenuously. I was able to take a quick photo or two of Saige wearing the costume, and then carefully took off the headgear as it was the piece that broke into so many other pieces. The glue just doesn't like to attach itself to the clay that the headgear is made of. It keeps slipping off. Anyhow, here is my lovely Zelda costume. I really do love it. :) Saige modelling Zelda costume photo 20141030_120543_zpsa2628b18.jpg Please don't mind the dark picture. My house is always dark and it's rainy here so couldn't get the best photo.

Liberty Jane Design Academy

I have been wanting to do this since they were first started, and finally I am able to join! I am using this to give myself either a kickstart back into sewing or/and maybe get my creative juices flowing in designing. I am not only doing this for the AG dolls, but would like to take the knowledge I will learn and put it towards my other size dolls. Especially when patterns for these dolls are not available. Today is the start of it, but it pretty much is just the getting to know you phase. The work starts on Monday and I can't wait to see what this is all about. :)

Amy Farrah Fowler and Little Darlings

Well, hubby and I love The Big Bang Theory show, and originally we only ordered the Sheldon doll, but knowing Tonner Dolls will eventually, hopefully make the entire cast of dolls, I went and pre-ordered the Amy doll as well. Also, I have fallen in love with Dianna Effner's Little Darling dolls and I was able to order a Piper doll that will be custom painted by Geri Uribe. I can't wait! These dolls are so precious looking. Once it gets closer to her being shipped to me, I will start collecting patterns for doll outfits for her. Starting with MHD Designs. I love Magalie's patterns and have almost all of them for the AG dolls. I am waiting for a big shipment of beads from Fire Mountain Gems to come in so that I can finish some outfits and begin on other outfits. I will post pictures of the shipment and the outfits soon. Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!
