Samantha's Beforever debut!

I recently purchased the Samantha Beforever outfit from AmericanGirl, and to celebrate, I did a photo-shoot that mimics the cover of the new book! I am really proud of my editing on this one.


I took a lot of other photos, too. I figured I should show you guys--even though they aren't edited like the one above, they are still cute! 





Do you have any Beforever/historical dolls? If you do, try making your own Beforever book-cover photo-shoot! It's really fun!

  21. Just wanted to let you know I appreciate all the entertainment you provided my daughter this past weekend. She very much enjoyed watching many of the stop motion videos. I was also impressed that you are vocal about following the internet safety rules set for you. GOOD JOB! My daughter is 10 and I am glad that she has you as an internet role model.

The story behind it all....

In September of 2009, a pre-teen girl named Anna was searching youtube. She no longer used her american girl dolls. they were behind the closet doors, gathering dust. She reluctantly glanced over, then began to type in the search bar: American Girl Dolls. A video came up. She clicked on it. 14 coustumed dolls slid onto the screen and began to dance together, waving their arms and doing cartwheels. Anna was shocked. How could this be possible? This was.... Amazing. She quickly searched a few more. There were hudreds of videos, by usernames like stephenswodadancer, AGlovejess and girloftheyearstudios. Anna couldn't believe it. This new discovery was incredible! She ran to her room and pulled out her two dolls, felicity and samantha. She grabbed her camera. And, she began to film.


It is now four years later. I work on videos almost everyday, usually stopmotions. I have gathered quite a few veiws and subscribers on youtube, and I really appriciate when people comment on my videos. I have come unbelievibly far, but I still leave up those first videos from two years ago, because for me, those are the memories that I will always treasure. I am so happy that I can share them with you.
