American girl announces retirements.

Today I got an email from AG ( I get the newsletter things) and they said the that are going to retire AG Ivy, Ruthie , Marie-Grace, and Cecile.

Here is what they said: 

Also they said that they are now going to have the historical's called BeForever! I think it is a good idea!  I don't know much about it though so I am not sure of what it is going to be like? But so far I like how they are they are making the historical dolls a fresh and new look while still staying historical!!! :) 


As for the retirements I am not really sure about what I think of it? I am exited for the new historical dolls that will come out in the future ( I bet they will come out with more dolls since they are retired these four). Personally I am fine with them retired ( I was never a big fan of Marie-grace and Ruthie) as for Cecile and Ivy, I liked them but there not my fav. ( no offence to the people who like those dolls they are great but just not my fav)  it is to bad that they are going but I am exited for the new dolls to come! :) 

What are your thoughts on this?

Kits cute outfit! :)

My sister let me dress her doll Kit and brush her hair! Here is what I dressed her up in!




Tada! 



Outfit details:

Shirt: AG scate board set
Skirt: Kits meet outfit
Shoes: some kind of Kit outfit
Bag: either a Springfield bag or our generation ( not sure) 


I also did Julie's hair! 

-dollstars 

A hairstyle for Julie!



Do u like the hairstyle I did on Julie?! It took a long time but it was worth it! 


I took small sections of her hair, twisted them, twirled them into into a small bun and bobby pinned in place. When I did another section I just twirled it around the first, I did that to all of the hair and viola! :) 



When I took it out the hair was kinda curly, also it was kinda frizzy. 


But luckily It was easy to fix! I just sprayed a little water on it and combed and her hair was back to normal! :)

Items u will need: fabric, scissors, glue gun, and Velcro

First cut out of your fabric a shape that looks like above.

Put Velcro on the sides and top pieces!
