Who are you?

I’m Jennifer, a lifelong Disney addict, doll collector, and lover of cute and small things. I’ve been known to spend my time drawing and writing about mermaids, taking pictures, learning to sew and playing video games with my bff – a.k.a. my husband. We met 11 years ago at an anime/video game convention, dressed as our favorite Final Fantasy characters. He’s a fellow lover of collectible things. ♥



Which 18″ dolls do you have?

Seven American Girl dolls – Kanani (Girl of the Year 2011), Arista – a customized My American Girl #53 with Grace Thomas’ wig and hand-painted freckles, Sienna – a customized Grace with an auburn wig, Marinette – another customized Grace with a blue/black wig, Lea (Girl of the Year 2016), Noelle (TrulyMe #62), and Cecile (1853). My mom is now the happy owner of my Caroline (1812), my aunt is now the happy owner of my Marie-Grace (1853), and my Isabelle (Girl of the Year 2014) is now enjoying a new home. I also have a nearly-20-year-old Magic Attic Club Megan Ryder doll (she needs to be restrung and have her hair conditioned).

Can you sew something for me? Can I buy [item] from you?

Unfortunately, no. I’m currently still a beginner at sewing and my work has a LOT of imperfections – most of which are either hidden on the inside of the garment or on the back, and carefully hidden from view in my photos. I’m really picky about the pieces I buy from etsy and I hold myself to the same standard. Maybe in the future when I can actually sew closures nicely or not have to resort to Fray Check-ing some of my mistake areas haha… 😉

Nothing on this site is for sale. If you’re looking for retired dolls, outfits, or accessories, eBay, American Girl message boards and Facebook groups are all great places to start.


Where’d you get those backdrops?

Most of them are from American Girl (Samantha’s Scenes and Settings, Christmas backdrop), and a couple were made by me (den backdrop). The Main Street U.S.A., Disneyland backdrop was taken by the uber-talented Tom Bricker of DisneyTouristBlog.com (and is being used for non-commercial purposes only!). Go visit his gallery and prepare to drool and have the insatiable urge to go live in a Disney park FOREVER!
