Camp Update

I had a review of one of the cabins that I was all ready to post for today. And then my camera broke. I have no idea if I will be getting another one, fixing the one I have, or just not doing pictures. For now I will be using my Mom’s I Pad, so posts might not always happen, (I have to pull the I pad out of my mom’s hands) and the pictures won’t be great. ( I am a camera person, not a I Pad person.)

I am really sorry about that, but there is nothing really I can do. So enjoy your summer, with or without Dolltastically Fun!

An Update

Doll diaries has announced that Char is retiring. See Here.

I am very sad, as I loved Doll diaries. They inspired this blog. I loved reading the posts, doing the crafts, sending things in. I loved camp, and I did it twice with them.

They aren’t doing camp anymore, but I still am. This means I need themes. Comment down below any themes that you think I should use. When I start camp  next week I will pick Twelve themes and use them. Comment as many themes as you want, I will consider all of them.

If you would like to guest post crafts, photostories or shoots, or anything else for camp, email guest post to my gmail account. (Prettypiggiegirl) I will post any appropriate guest posts.

Comment away!

Update

Last week was a very bad week. In case anyone is wondering, I didn’t fall off a cliff or anything (Although there is a cliff in our yard) I’m just fine-now. Maybe I didn’t fall off of a cliff, but it was still a very bad week. You see, I got sick. I had scarlet fever, and I had to go to the hospital on Tuesday. I didn’t really do school the whole week, but I would have rather done school then be sick. My dolls were a comfort to me in the hospital, so this week I am going to do something like what happened to me. A whole week without posts, but just so you know, December is crazy, and there won’t be consistent posts. I do have something really cool coming up though.

Cyber Monday

 

CYBER MONDAY specials start tomorrow. Save up to 60% off select favorites while supplies last! Restrictions apply.

Oh lookie! Just what I was waiting for! Oh, you’re wondering what I’m talking about? See, American girl had a black Friday sale, but the stuff I want wasn’t on sale. The 20% off however, continues till Monday. Their Cyber Monday sales are usually better then the black Friday ones, so I decided to wait. No harm can come if I wait. The Cyber Monday sale is double what the black Friday one is. See? It’s worth waiting for.

Stealing

A few people has stolen my pictures, and put them on their own website. While I am extremely flattered, I am also confused. Why in the world would someone steal my worst pictures? If you are going to steal the pictures, you might as well steal the good ones. I am going to watermark them, but wouldn’t you rather steal the good pictures?

Gay Marriage

In the November/December edition of American Girl Magazine they announced there support of gay marriages. While I don’t approve of this, and know it is wrong, (the Bible says not to do it) I am not going to stop buying from them, and liking them. They should not encourage it, and they should not approve of it, but I can’t change their minds.  People don’t always do what is right, and people don’t always KNOW what’s right. I might stop reading the magazine, but I don’t think that them approving of what’s wrong will change anything else. However DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ! Gay marriage is NOT okay.

New Springfield Dolls Updated

I have new information and pictures, so here they are. ChristianHomeschooler  from TreasuredFriendshipsWithAflair took some pictures, and kindly granted me permission to use them. You can see them here.

The new dolls are officially in stock at the stores, except Michaels has switched to another brand for the holidays, so you can’t find them there. You can get them at Hobby Lobby, and probably Joanns, however on the websites, they are still the old dolls.

Springfield1

Here are all the dolls That Hobby lobby had. They got a new box, but it looks to be the same, flimsy, style.

Springfield2

Here is Abby. I like the picture on the front of the box, but they don’t sell the clothes with the dolls, so they shouldn’t have done that.

Springfield3

Then we have Emma. There is a price tag that says 24.99, I think.

Springfield4

Here we have Olivia. I like how she looks more realistic, and I love the red hair and teal.

Springfield5

Last we have Madison. She changed the most, but she is still cute.

Thank you Christianhomeschooler for lending me the pictures!

I was looking at the Springfield website’s dolls. All of them looked weird except Maria. I clicked on the pages to the the pictures and this is what I found out.

Abby is OUT OF STOCK 

Madison is OUT OF STOCK 

Olivia is OUT OF STOCK 

Emma is OUT OF STOCK 

Maria is not, but this is why.

The pictures of the dolls are different. All but Maria have different face molds, and all the dolls that had bangs won’t anymore. The new pictures say arriving December 1. I think that they discontinued the dolls, and are making new dolls to be released December 1.

Here are the new ones and the old ones.

It looks like the new Abby has lighter skin, darker lips, and a slightly different shade of hair. It doesn’t look like a big smile anymore, and the eyebrows are visible, and too dark. No bangs ether.

Madison - 18 inch African-American Doll

The old Madison has darker skin, the new one’s looks like Maria’s. The new Madison’s eyes are darker, and the hair looks different. The lips are darker, like I think they should have been on old Madison.  Emma - 18 inch Doll

Emma looks like she is wearing mascara. The lips are more realistic, and the eyebrows are too dark.

Olivia - 18 inch Doll

The new Olivia has a different shade of skin, and doesn’t look like she is wearing blush, and lipstick. Her hair looks redder, and her eyes darker. The dress looks different, but it might be the picture.

Maria - 18 inch Latina doll

The only thing I can tell about Maria is her hair won’t be layered.

In some ways the change will be better, in some ways worse. If you want an old doll, get it now, before they go away. I don’t know how long the stores will have the old dolls, or even if they will get new dolls at all. I am not planing on getting any new dolls, but I hope the hair quality goes way up. (Abby’s hair is a frizzy mess, and Maria’s is on it’s way.)

What do you think of the changes? I don’t know if everything is true, most is just guesses. Lexie

Changes

Yesterday I ran out of upload space. We were going to buy more, but you had to have an upgrade for that. We decided to do it, even though it is really expensive. We bought it for the space, but it comes with several upgrades. There are more themes, so the setup might change, and it is dolltasticallyfun.com instead of .wordpress.com. We are going to put some adds up, to help pay for the cost, but other than all those changes the content will NOT change. Be ready for a new theme if it comes.

Whatchamacallit

Random title. I am to lazy to think of something better.

I’m sorry for not posting for the last week. It was a hard week. But it was the week of my birthday (Meaning lots of reviews.) I will start normal posting tomorrow, but the rest of the summer might not get posts every day. Being homeschooled (YAY!) I have posting as part of school and will post 4 days a week. Now excuse me while I go play with Grace. 🙂
