Yup, I'm back!

I know, I know. You though I deserted you. But I haven't!! Really. It's just that Ella has been really stressed out lately, and that since she's a main part of this blog, I said I'd take a week break. Plus, I've been really low on inspiration. But now I'm back, and I've got a bucket load! Ella has been looking at stuff to get for us, and I really want a new skateboard. So, to pay for five (soon to be six) dolls, Ella has to earn some money. So while Ella has been earning money, all of us dolls have been sitting around eating truffles looking for things that we need, emailing Hermione, and looking for the American girl doll travel set, pictured below.
We've all wanted it for ages... but never have gotten it. And now that American Girl isn't selling it, we've all been really alert for it on Ebay, Amazon, Etsy, and anywhere else that we can think of. However, for the first few days since we started looking, we haven't found it. Until a couple of days ago, when, on Ebay, Ella saw an auction for it. There were only three things:

  1. Ella doesn't do auctions. She's only been in one before, and that time, she lost by three seconds... which has really put her off.
  2. The seller only ships to America.
  3. It ended at midnight here.
So we all thought and prayed about it, and finally, last night, Ella said she'd enter. She read over the auction thing, and it says that it will automatically raise your bid until your top payment. Then, Ella found someone in America that she could send it to, then entered. Well, it took an hour to enter, because the ebay did not want to know that we did not want to ship it to Asia. Finely  around nine forty-five, the bid went through. We were ahead by fifty cense. And we couldn't get back in the lead if the other bidder raised it. Let's just say, I was really nervous to go to sleep that night. In the morning, I pestered Ella to check to see if we'd won, but she had to do a gazillion other things first. Finely. She looked. She gasped, and then.....

"WE WON!!!" She jumped up and down. "Yes!!!"
Unfortunately, we won't be able to get it for a while, till we go back to America. But still!!! I WON!!! Okay, okay. WE WON!!

Dakota!!! :)


  1. Hooray for you and Ella!!! That IS VERY exciting!!! Miss you guys soooo much!


    P.S. I'm trying to find a shirt pattern for the Aquamarine Day dresses. I Still haven't started them yet..... SORRY!

    1. Yeah, we are all really excited!! Now Ella is making a travel kit for us all, because we will (most likely) be taking tons of weekend trips next year! Though, I won't be able to say why until I find out for sure.
      That's okay! Honestly. I wish I could be of more help, but I'm not sure where to find one, and we don't have a sewing machine. Strike that: We don't have a sewing machine that works. Well, soon we won't even have one that doesn't work!
