My Favorite Things: Handmades!

Time for a new series here at the Snarker! My Favorite Things will just be me going around and finding 5-10 of my favorite things from any given thing I have a collection of, taking pictures of them and talking a little bit about why I like them so much.

This was born out of the idea that I have a lot of stuff, but yet I don’t really have a place to gather it all up into one cohesive mess and take a picture of it, so how about I just pick and choose? Some ideas I’ve scribbled down for this are:

– Favorite dolls that aren’t Monster High
– Favorite Monster High dolls that aren’t Abbey
– Favorite Abbey Bominable dolls
– Favorite ponies (by generation)
– Favorite official American Girl Outfits
– Favorite off-brand 18″ doll outfits
– And on and on.

And today’s thrilling episode?

Handmade American Girl Clothes!

I have a lot of handmade clothes. My aunt got surprisingly giddy and excited when I was given Mari, and went Etsy shopping.

The suspense is terrible… I hope it’ll last

Alright, so. I know. I’ve been silent, but there’s a good reason for this! So much is happening, y’all! And now that I have followers – this is really exciting to me! – I feel like I owe an explanation, and such… you’ll get one.

See, we’re doing a little remodeling in our little house, and the result of this remodeling is that I am getting a room for my crafting… which also means that I’ll have lots of shelf space, which means I get to DISPLAY SHIT.


So, my ponies and Monster High are going to get to be out again – right now, most of the dolls are in their own watertight tub and the ponies are in various boxes – as soon as we finish painting and doing some touch up work on the floor and buy some shelves that we can easily spray paint. I’ll have pictures when it’s all done. I should have taken some before pictures but I didn’t.

Oh, also new in this house, besides a whole plethora of new dolls?

Elyse, my new American Girl, who joined us here at the Snarker this week. More about her, and all kinds of stuff, soon!
