Hello and Happy New Year!

Dropping in to wish all my AG friends a terrific 2018!

We have had a lovely Christmas holiday, though not quite the quantity of American Girl items under the tree as in years past. I will always have happy memories of the excitement of giving a new doll for Christmas.

Gabriela’s Sparkling Sequins outfit on Dakota – Gift for Brianna

Some readers may recall that we bought an Isabelle doll at the Madison’s Children’s Museum Benefit sale to turn around and auction at our church’s holiday boutique. All proceeds provide scholarships for African men and women to attend university, as well as other outreach efforts. Isabelle and her accompanying swag were a popular item and the auction had a record profit of $18,000! Thanks to Flo for crafting some items for dear Isabelle!

Though our posts have become less frequent, Brianna and I have committed to continuing our famous “new release review” posts coming to you direct from our local coffee shop!

What are your thoughts on Luciana?  I think it is a great theme, but one that doesn’t particularly pull at my wallet.  I do have her book on the way from Amazon, and if you know me, I might change my tune after I read her book.

We wish you a new year filled with many opportunities to play!
