Madelon's Welly Wishers In Store Adventure

I love the Wellie Wishers line, I did not want to but I have to admit these lovely dolls have caught my eye! I think that this line of dolls which is geared for the younger doll loving girls has quite a bit of appeal as a collector as well. This one shown above Kendall is my favorite of them all.
These 5 friends are colorfully dressed and offer younger girls a great way to express themselves through creative play!
Madelon captured the excitement in store and kindly shared her photos with us.
The little foot prints through the store lead you to the Wellie Wishers Area!
This entire line is well thought out and has young girls hearts and minds!
I love the different boots!
Outfits!
Play area in store!
Playsets to purchase and take home!
There was even a fun take home craft!
These dolls have everything you love about doll play and done in a very American Girl Doll way! Thank you Madelon for sharing your photos with us today! I have good news for those of you living in Canada like myself, we are going to be seeing these dolls in store very soon at our American Girl stores!

Karen Mom of Three's Craft Blog Dolly Summer School - Horses

Welcome back to week three of Karen Mom of Three's Craft Blog Dolly Summer School. This week we are featuring tutorials, patterns and ideas for your dolls horses!
One of my first activities for horses on Doll Diaries was this tutorial for a card board stable. Click here for the tutorial. 
In 2013 for Camp Doll Diaries I had so much fun creating this play set for my dolls horse. I hope you will enjoy taking a look at how easy this is to do as a camp craft or rainy day activity. You can view the tutorial by clicking here.

I made these hay bales one year for my dolls horse and they are still being used by my nieces today! Click here for the tutorial.
For those of you who sew I can recommend this Etsy Pattern listing by my friend Skippy's Mom! If you are sewing for your doll lover who has a horse you will love this pattern. It is offered at $3.99 and it is fun to make with fabric for each and every holiday! Click here for shop and listing. 

Thank you for joining us today and we look forward to having you for Summer School next week join us when our theme is Crafts for your dolls room or doll house!
