You're A Great Photographer Award

Hey, Here is an award I received:

The Rules:
1. Nominate 3-7 blogs for this award and make a link to the blog.
2. If you are nominated, give 1 of your photography tips and answer the questions given.
3. Go comment on a post of the person you nominated letting them know they were nominated.
4. Copy the picture below on your post.
5. Link your post back to the original post.
6. Add the picture to your tool bar or page.
7. Copy these rules onto your post.
8. Have fun! 

Photography tip: Lighting is the key! Aim for bright pictures try to always take pictures in places with lots of natural light if possible. The pictures don't have to be all sunshine-y depending on the theme of your photo shoot, but dark and shadowy pictures are normally not attractive. 

1.) What camera do you use? I use a Nikon D80, it is an old camera of my dad's. Well it really isn't old, he just upgraded. 
2.) Which one of your dolls is the most photogenic? Probably Hailey. At least, that is what I am told.
3.) Do you like indoor or outdoor photography better? Absolutely outdoors. The lighting is oh so much better than in my house, and the scenery is always changing with the seasons!
 4.) Which season is your favorite to take photos of your dolls? I really like summer because I love to take pictures of my dolls in our garden. Especially by the roses!

Thank you so much to Polka Dot Bee for nominating me!

My questions are the same. 
I am nominating:

The Dolls of Maple Street, Abigail
Girly Doll Type, Megan
Alone in Doll World

Huge Surprise!!!

I have something very exciting to tell you all:
As you may or may not have noticed, my dolls didn't get any Christmas presents, not one. This is because I have a huge surprise for them that hasn't arrived until now.
Leave a comment guessing what this wonderful surprise is, if you guess it right, I'll give your blog / you a shout-out on my reveal post!
If nobody guesses right by Feb. 1st I will have a "Clues" post.
Happy Guessing!

Hair clips from AG

Remember a few months ago when I posted "An Issue With BeForever Outfits"? Anyways, you can read that post for a more in depth explanation but here is the short story: I got 2 BeForever outfits that were advertised to come with a hair clip, but they really weren't supposed to, but AG said they would send them to me anyways in 4-6 months.
So, December 29th was 4 months so we called AG and they said they they could send one and the other was in short supply so they didn't know. When I got home form the AGP Minneapolis on January 3rd. I got a package from them! Here are pictures of me opening them:

Yes, there is a doll sized menu covering up my address.

Yay! Both hair clips came!

I'm so happy to have these after 4 months of waiting!

Sorry that I haven't been posting recently, I have finals next week so I have been preoccupied.

What I Got At The AGP (January 2015)

I didn't get much at the AGP because I just got 2 dolls so my wallet is pretty tiny. Anyways, I was planning on getting Grace's travel coat but I decided on  got Grace's Baking Outfit. I'm glad I did because it is so cute! I love the shirt especially. I also got the Sparkly Hair Pick for Addy's hair. Plus got the giveaway and the prizes for the scavenger hunt and the luggage tag craft. Since my little sister came with me, I ended up with 2 of everything (except the luggage tag craft.) Here are pictures:
