Hair Tutorial: Big Bun


Hey everybody! Today I will be showing you guys to to get this HUGE bun on your AG doll! It looks SO cute once when your done and I even like to do this on myself (For a human, you will have to tease thin hair. For a doll, that's not a problem. lol So PLEASE don't ever tease your dolls hair)!!! You will need 6 or more bobby pins, a doll hair brush and a ponytail holder. Optional: A spray bottle of water. It's always a good idea to spray water in your dolls hair so it won't become frizzy! 


Start by brushing your dolls hair,


and put it up in a ponytail.

Divide the ponytail in two sections like so, and start rolling them away from each other.

Just like this. Add bobby pins to secure it.

This is how it should look so far!

Repeat these steps on the bottom section of hair and add bobby pins. Now, just close the sections in between like so with bobby pins. And...

Voila! It looks so cool!

This is how it turned out on Morgan. Because she has layers, you can see through the bun! Hahahahah!

The front view,

and the back!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial for this adorable bun and maybe you will do it sometime in the future! TTYL!

P.S Shout out to Live Laugh Dolls!

P.P.S And now…. Bonus pictures! Just some photos I took of Morgan!

DIY American Girl Collage

Hello everyone! Today we going to be making a craft! This craft is so cute and looks cool in your room or hers (Or both)!! 


So the things you will need include....

Some old catalogs from AG or you can print pictures of your dolls!

A Paintbrush

A Jar of Water

(My water looks green because the bottom of the jar is green.)

Scrapbook Paper. Any pattern! 

A Tile (Or if you don't have one you can cut out a thick cardboard square but I really think this would turn out best:)

Scissors and Glue (And a Pencil but I forgot to take a picture of that)

Mod Podge (Or if you don't have any just make a picture of half liquid glue half water and that should do the trick)

Ok, now that we have gathered up supplies, let's get started!

First, put the tile on the other side of the scrapbook paper and draw a bigger square around the tile. Then add slits on the corners. 

Cut it out....

.....And glue the tile to the paper.

Flip it over and glue down the sides.

It should look like this so far.

Cut out little pictures of things you like from the catalogue.

I cut out Coconut, some words, a AG book, a star, a charm and some AG dolls. 

Now, glaze the Mod Podge (Or your glue and water mixture) all over your tile

And when it's dry, place where you want all your cut outs to be.

Then start Mod Podging them on. Let it dry over night and VOILA! You have your very own little AG Collage!



I love how it turned out! And it's so easy and looks so cute! I also love how it adds a spalsh of color to your (Or your doll's) room!

My thoughts on NEW Samantha Parkington

Sooo... American Girl has officially brought Sam back. So I'm going to give my thoughts on her new pieces.  I would just like to say.... "EVERY THINGS PINK!!!!" I thought Sam was a Tom Boy! Well, at least she was one. Just look at her collection:

It's all pink! And see that dog? That's her new pet Jigs. Kinda cute, but I wouldn't get him (Or her, I don't know. lol) He kind of looks sad. Oh, and AG is pricing Samantha for $115 dollars. WHY is it always rising? :/ 

I mean, every things pink besides this:



Sam's Bicycling Outfit. Which I sort of like. I don't get it very well.....

So I would only give Samantha's new collection 3 stars. I think it could have been better.

FYI, this is just MY personal thoughts on this. If you adore Samantha then adore her! Sam is cute. :)

P.S I have a craft post comin up that I think you'll enjoy!

P.P.S Shout out to a blog I just discovered today, Dolls On My Mind!

My entry for The Doll Wardrobe

This is my picture for The Doll Wardrobe's photo contest. The theme was Dream Land. This is what I made! :)

(Please don't steal my picture for anything)

This was REALLY hard to make because I had to make my lightings and my green screen. I used my green sleeping bag for the backdrop then I created this magical background on a free photo editing web site called Picmonkey.com. I used a white Our Generation horse and added the galaxy affect to it. My other affects that I included is the purple butterfly, sparkles, the wings (I used a butterfly affect and made it bigger and a little see-through. Then I added tree branches to create lines on the wings to make it look more realistic) and the flowers. My story to this is Julie is in her dream world with fairies. (My American Girl #30 a.k.a. Morgan is on of the millions of fairies that live here) Julie is so happy to be in her Dream Land!

SO that's my entry! Let me know in the comments if you entered as well! :D

P.S Shout out to Oh My Dollies!! :D
