It's not the end

(I've re written this post so many times it's not even funny anymore.)

Hi everyone!

This probably isn't really the post that you were looking forward to reading but it has to be said.
I'm so sorry that I haven't posted in such a long time!
I just haven't felt very attached to my dolls lately... 
I've barely even touched them since my last post. It's not for any specific reason, I'm not going through anything serious, it's just something that has kinda just happened.
It's been what, pretty much 2 months since I last posted? More? That is pretty out of character for me and I'm surprised myself that I haven't even tried too much to get back into the swing of things. I've been really thinking lately about this blog and what I plan to do with it. (You've probably already guessed where this whole post is going and sadly yes.) I thought that I'd have at least another year of posting on here but after a ton of thought and consideration, I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to quit posting on here. 

This is just as much of a shock to you as it is to me really, but I don't think that this is one of those "take a break for a month" situations. I think I'm seriously done with doll blogging...
I don't hate dolls, it's just that dolls aren't my passion anymore and if something isn't my passion I don't want to force myself to do it. It's kind of crazy how much I've changed within 2 months. I've found other things that I absolutely love the same way that I used to love our doll blogging community! Photography, playing the piano, my friends and family etc. I've moved on, and actually, I'm really glad that I made this blog. It's what I needed at the time. I don't regret it all all. It made me feel needed, and just made me feel like I had a purpose. You guys are the most amazing followers out there. You are always so encouraging, nice, great feedback givers, and just everything that I asked for plus more. I couldn't have asked for better people to follow my blog.
Bella from A Doll's Life was so sweet and commented on my previous post asking me if I was okay because I hadn't posted in such a long time. And I don't think ya'll know how much that means to me! That you guys sincerely care when I'm gone. 
(Btw you should totally go follow her if you haven't already because her blog is amazing ;))

Ya'll are just so amazing, words can't even describe the way I feel towards ya'll. It's been an incredible journey blogging on here. 

But guys, don't fret just yet ;) You'll still get blog posts from me. I'm not totally gone. I'll post on my personal blog Grey Not Blue. It will be my top priority now to post at least every week. If you aren't already following make sure to follow so you don't miss a single post from me! 

I'm so very thankful for my accomplishments that I've made here. They may be small in some people's eyes, but they are huge in mine.

And if you were wondering I am still going to be active in commenting on ya'lls posts, and I will definitely still leave the blog up. I've made way too many memories on here to just erase them with one click of a button. And if ya'll have any questions for me about anything as long as it's not too personal feel free to ask. I'd love to chat with you guys. 

If someone hasn't told you already today, you're beautiful, you're fantastic, you're just plain amazing. Don't ever let anyone or even yourself tell you otherwise.

I'm sure going to miss this.

Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful day!

Claire's auction details

So yes, sadly I am selling Claire.
Like I said in a past post, I just didn't feel the connection.
But, I'm really happy to know that a lot of you are interested in adding her to your doll collection!
I'm sure that she'll find a great home. :)

So here are just some of the basic facts about Claire.
She's a JLY (Just Like You) #23,
She's a Pleasant Company doll which means that she was made and sold before Mattel bought American Girl.
She has light skin, blue eyes, light brown hair, and freckles.
She was made in 2008, so she is 8 years old.

Now onto photos!

Here's an overall picture of Claire.

The color on her face is still great.  She has colored cheeks and lips.

As you can see, she has gorgeous pinwheel blue eyes with AG's cute classic freckles,
Her eyebrows are the classic style. 

Her hair is a light brown, and in good condition for an older doll. There is some dryness at the tips but it isn't bad.
The dryness mostly stays at the tips. The hair at her scalp is soft. 
Claire has some broken hairs which is to be expected.  Because of this, her hair is mildly frizzy on the ends. 
You've seen how great her hair looks in my past posts. It isn't bad at all. I am just being super descriptive in describing her so you know exactly what you are buying. 

She is a Pleasant Company doll which means that she wasn't made and sold when Mattel owned American Girl. That's all the print on her neck means. :)

She can hold a position great, and her limbs aren't loose as you can see in the photo above.

As far as any damage goes, she only has a few shine marks on her face,
a mild scuff on her left limb, and a tiny red dot on her right foot.
I've tried to get all of these marks off her her with a magic eraser, but unfortunately I haven't had any positive results. The red dot Looks like an ink mark.

Eyelids are in excellent condition!
No scuffs or scratches at all that I've seen.
Same for her eyelashes. There aren't any missing eyelashes on her eyelids.

And she does not have her ears pierced.

Over all, Claire's in great condition. The only thing is her hair, which isn't even in bad condition at all. And for a 8 year old doll, if I do say so myself, she's in excellent condition! You can tell that she well cared for.

I'm asking for $90 to buy Claire. Free shipping She would come in a AG GOTY Grace box, with no clothes or accessories.

If you are interested in Claire you can email me at americangchick@gmail.com
I'm not going to hold her for anyone so it's basically first come first serve.
I can take PayPal. 

And for those who live out of the US
I'm sorry to say that I can't ship out to y'all. :/ 

If you have any other questions about Claire, or want a more specific picture of something, feel free to comment down below! I'll answer your questions as best I can.

Thanks for reading!

Dusk till dawn//AGPS//Selling Claire?


I just updated the "My dolls" page the other day so make sure to check that out.
All of the girl's info is fresh and newly written. You'll be sure to find Madison's and Leah's bio all finished as well. I still can't believe that I put off making Madison's bio and personality in general!
Leah's was really easy to write up because I wanted her personality and hobbies to be like mine.
Pretty much a little mini-me. ^-^

On a sad note,
I've been thinking about selling Claire...
I just haven't really ever been attached to her at all. I know that I've talked about possibly sending her to the doll hospital, but I'm afraid that isn't going to happen. It costs quite a bit of money, and I'm sure that if I did send her that I'd love her even more when she came back, but I really need the money right now to save up for some other things not doll related. I think I'm done with buying dolls to be honest. At most, I'll buy one more, but I've been kind of slowly moving on from dolls little by little losing interest, which is really sad. I'm not going to leave, heck no. I love you all too much. :) But I just know that it's all eventually going to come to a end. How soon? I'm not really sure, but you won't have to worry about me leaving anytime soon. I'm just saying that it's all going to come to a end sooner or later. I still love American Girl dolls! I'm just not going to buy a lot more dolls to add to my collection.

That's just what I've been thinking lately.

So I'm pretty certain that I'm going to sell Claire so if you're possibly interested in buying her, just comment down below. She's a TLC doll so her best bet is to use her for customization.
If you all are interested I'll post another post with more information on her and how much she would be.

Okay. That's all I have to say for now.
Have a fantastic day. ^_^

Etsy favorites//January 2016

A while back if you remember I did something similar to this where I shared some of my favorite items from Etsy through a wish list. You can go to that post HERE.
But instead of doing what I did before, where it was kind of a general wish list of everything doll related that I wanted, I'm strictly only going to be pulling items from Etsy.
So It'll basically be a wishlist, but for only items off of Etsy.

Now for some of my favorites!

18 Inch Girl Doll Clothes | Ivory Velvet and Lace 3/4 Sleeve DRESS for Dolls such as American Girl
Not my photo
Starting off, here's a super cute dress from Closet4Chloe!
I love how simple it is and how delicate it looks. I especially love the lace at the bottom
of the dress.

Not my photo
Another item from Closet4Chloe are these super cute leggings! I love the neutral colors in the fabric pattern!

Not my photo
From RoyalDollBoutique here's a super cute outfit combination!
I'm seriously obsessed with this outfit. But sadly it's sold out at the moment.

Kings Canyon Top for an American Girl Doll or Other 18 Inch Dolls
Not my photo
Also from RoyalDollBoutique is this super cute top! In this listing they are only selling the shirt but I wanted to share this because I just love the overall outfit look! It's super cute and has a really simple look to it that really flows well. But just like the previous outfit, it is sadly sold out at the moment.

American Girl Doll Clothes - Knit Boot Toppers, Light Grey, Stretch Lace Trim,  Boot Cuff,  Leg Warmers, 18 inch clothes,  AG boot cuff,

From sewurbandesigns we have some adorable leg warmers for dolls!
I've always loved these for dolls!

Anchor Necklace - 18 Inch Doll Clothes // Jewelry
Not my photo
From HerDollEssentials here's a anchor necklace for dolls!
I think that this is super cute and would go with a lot of outfits!
Accessorizing your dolls outfits makes a huge difference!

From LoriLizandDolls we have a pair of jean shorts, a graphic tank top, and a floral skater skirt.

18 inch Doll Clothes - Cut Off Shorts, Dark Denim, Separates, Bottoms

18 inch Doll Clothes - Skater Skirt, Floral, Black, Magenta, Separates, Bottoms, Mini
Not my photo
The pink floral skirt and shorts have to be my favorite out of these three items!

Well that's all for today! I hope that you enjoyed reading this! Comment which item's your favorite!
My favorite overall shop on Etsy even though they aren't selling anything at the moment has to be RoyalDollBoutique! I just love their clothes for dolls and how it's quite sophisticated compared to what AG sells. It's a lot more modern and you can definitely relate to it more.

Which item is your favorite, and what's your favorite Etsy shop?
