My Opinion On The Truly Me Release :D

Hi everyone! I'm super excited about this--Truly Me has released today! I was really sad to see three dolls retire (#12, #32, #38) but I am thrilled over most of the new items! So, let's get started by looking at the new dolls:



Here is one of the new girls! Isn't she adorable? I am pretty sure she has the Sonali mold with #26's amber eyes. I love her already! ;D 


This girl is super cute, too! I love her hair :D


Aww! I love her hair and face mold! I am thinking she has a (slightly modified?) Jess mold :)

But, while looking at all the new girls, I noticed this:


All seven of these girls had the words "No Longer Available" under their photos! :( I hope this is just a glitch and doesn't mean these dolls are retiring soon :( 

Anyway, here are the new outfits released:


The Lilac Dress and Accessories! They also made a version for girls :) I surprisingly really like this set! I know this will probably be a really unpopular opinion but I think that vest is too cute ;) Also, I am beginning to think all these "No Longer Available" signs have to be a glitch because a lot of other sets have this sign and they are brand-new! ;)


I am kind of on the fence on the Shimmer Doodle Outfit--I really like the pieces separately for mix and match, but I really don't like them together ;)


I actually really like the Flamingo Beach Dress! I think it's really cute :)


I think this set is really adorable, too! I love the colors :)

Onto accessories! ;)


I really like the Beach Hammock Set, but it seems a bit overpriced to me ;) 


I really love this set! The little food and lemonade is just too cute to me ;)



Hmm, for the Flip Flops for girls, it says Image Not Available, but when I click on it, it shows me this:


So I'm guessing those are it ;) They are very cute :)

AG also added some new games and activities to their Play section which I also recommend checking out, too :)

Thank you for reading! What do you think of the Truly Me release? I'd love to hear in the comments! :)

1 Year Blogoversary Giveaway: Giving Away American Girl Doll Felicity?!?!

Yes, as I promised in my last post, I will finally be announcing my giveaway!!! It's been so hard for me to keep this secret for so long, and I am so exited to share this will all of you! :D 



Hmm...I wonder who that is, behind the flower box? ;)

As a thank you to you all, I have been planning a HUGE giveaway for over two months for you :D I will be giving away....


American Girl Doll Felicity!!!!!!!

Yes, I am giving away a, full-size, 18", American Girl Doll!! I have worked on repairing her, save for her really loose legs (I lost my nerve when it came to removing a doll's head and stuffing ;) ) and she is nearly as good as new! If you would love a chance to win her, read on! ;) 


Isn't she adorable?!?! ;D

Isn't she so photogenic?

  

She would be perfect for anyone who loves doll photography :) 


She even still has one pincurl on each side of her head, and the others are still there, but they had been brushed out by her previous owner and refuse to re-curl :( But her other pincurls still look adorable, though! ;) 


She hardly has any scuffs, but she does have one shiny spot (seen in the photo above) on her hand, but it's hardly noticeable ;) 



Her hair has been restored to the best of my abilities, but the ends are still a tiny bit frizzy :( But the rest of her hair is really soft :D


When taking photos, I discovered something really cool: Felicity has a Pleasant Company neck stamp! :D 


Felicity's dress is in great shape, but there is one tiny dirt spot, as seen above ;) 

Felicity also will come with her Meet Book, which is also in great condition! :D 



It seems to be in really nice condition and even has this really cool picture still inside it!

The book does have a few wear spots, but there are not any really major blemishes ;) 


Felicity and her book have both been meticulously cleaned, and have no strange odors or markings besides normal use. Our family does have both a cat and dog, but I am not sure about her previous owner. My dolls are stored far away from pets, though. 

Here is an overview of all you will receive:

Thank You So Much For One Amazing Year + Happy Birthday To One Of My Most Fabulous Online Friends ;D

Wow. 
One year.
One year since I started Oh My Dollies. 
It feels like yesterday, and I'm not just being cheesy, it really feels like a blink of an eye since my mom said "Yes!" to my incessant pleas for a doll blog. 
I remember running inside our house (I was in our backyard at the time, gardening) and dreaming up names for my blog.
I finally settled on Oh My Dollies, and typed in the name, and it was available. 
I still remember choosing my first (incredibly terrible) profile picture. If you've been a long-time member of my blog, you'll remember this picture in all its glory:


Ew. XP
 (it was months until I finally got around to picking a better one ;) )


Speaking of one whole year, today is the birthday of a girl who I consider one of my best internet friends; Maddie aka DollsOnMyMind!! :D Happy birthday, Maddie--you are such an amazing friend to us all, and you are just so talented and amazing. I hope your day is great :)

On a less happy note, I've felt less inspired to post lately, as you've probably can tell by the less-than-great quality posts and photos and lack of posting in general. 
No, I am definitely not leaving, but I won't be putting as many lackluster posts up--I'll just be posting when inspiration strikes, which I hope will help get my "spark" or "inspiration" back.
But anyway, back to the more happy part of this blogoversary post.
I am so thankful for all of you, and you are the best friends I could have ever hoped for, and more. You all mean so much to me, and thank you for sticking with me for one whole year.

I will also be announcing my HUGE 1 Year Giveaway today!! Stay tuned because I can guarantee you will not want to miss this ;D

My Entry For AGPC Challenge Four: Friends

Hi everyone! Here is my entry for AGPC Challenge Four: 


F R I E N D S : 




Doll Entered In The Contest ~ Felicity (Historical Character)
 
The Story ~ Felcity and her good friend, Cora, love nature, and tree climbing in particular! ;)

About this photo ~ I used my Nikon Coolpix L830 camera to take this photo :) 

I am so sorry for the awful quality--the sun was going down and Cora fell out of the tree repeatedly and completely ruined her freshly re-done curls and it took me forever to get her hair looking presentable ;) 
Anyway, thank you for reading! :)
