25 Follower Giveaway

Wheeee! 25 28 followers! and a giveaway! Our sponsor is Daisy Chains, which is actually Christina's shop. :)  First off, we're going to do a little interview with Christina so that you can get to know her better!

R & K: How did you get into American Girl dolls?
C: When I was about 6 or 7 we got a catalogue in the mail, and of course I immediately wanted a doll. I had several baby dolls already, but these dolls were completely different! I really wanted Samantha, but I never actually told my parents! I ended up getting a JLY that looks a lot like Samantha the Christmas that I was 7. When I was 10 I bought Kirsten with all of the money that I had. 

R & K: How did you start sewing?
C: I had wanted to learn to sew ever since I was fairly young, but it wasn't until I was 10 that I got the chance. I took classes at an after school 4H program, and then the next year we started a 4H club for sewing. Once I started, I never stopped!

R & K: What got you to sell your doll clothes?
C: I made sundresses for my dolls and then my mom suggested that I sell them at our Farmers Market on Kids Day, a day that kids get a booth for free. I did this 4 different times, and had great success! This year, however, I no longer counted as a kid, so we decided to open an Etsy shop, and it's been awesome!

Thanks Christina! Don't forget to check out her shop, Daisy Chains! Now, onto the giveaway!

Christina made us a fun Hawaiian sundress that comes with a pretty shell necklace!

Summer Photoshoot with Kirsten

Hi, this is Kirsten. :) The day after Rebecca's photoshoot, Christina did one with me (and my cat, Missy), and finally got to editing and resizing the photos. Hope you like them!









Even though I'm not as photogenic as Rebecca, Christina thinks they turned out pretty well; how 'bout you?!
More giveaway info should be coming tomorrow!

A Quick Heads-up

Hello, Faithful Followers! Woot woot, 25! As some of you know, we have a lofty goal of reaching 100 followers someday and then having a big giveaway/contest! However, to help us reach our goal, we decided to have smaller giveaways at each of the different milestones: 25, 50, and 75! Which means that we're going to have a giveaway! Our sponsor will be Daisy Chains, which is actually Christina's shop. :)  Because of all the orders she is still trying to finish for her shop, she hasn't had a chance to make the dress we are giving away; but in a few days we should be able to put up pictures and begin the giveaway.
That's all for now!

Doll Wardrobe 2013 Fashion Design Challenge

Hi Everyone! Wow, 23 followers!! Thank you so much!
Sorry we haven't been posting lately, but Christina's been working on her first entry for The Doll Wardrobe 2013 Fashion Design Challenge. She had an idea at the very beginning, but wasn't sure if she'd be able to finish it in time. However, today is the day entries are due, and we just sent ours in!! We can't wait to see it posted.
In the meantime, here are pictures of the outfit she created.















 
 
What do you think? She modified Liberty Jane patterns for the shirt, shorts, and shoes; and modified a pattern from Oliver & S for the hat.
Comment and tell us your thoughts!
