It is New Year’s Eve once again and Elsie and I are celebrating our birthdays together (everyone around the world celebrates with us 😉 ).

The dolls and plushies of Star Valley are ringing in the New Year in different ways, with family and friends. Elara took her sister, Elsie, out for a birthday lunch at the Raspberry Flummery Cafe where they enjoyed burgers, cupcakes, and milk shakes. Elsie even dressed up in a shiny new dress and was given a birthday sash to wear.

I hope that all of you have had a wonderful holiday season and I hope you had some great times throughout 2022. Thank you for visiting my doll site. It will be interesting to see what 2023 has in store!

Happy Birthday, Elsie! (Cece, one of my Squishmallows, decided to photobomb, haha).

On this Christmas Eve the dolls of Star Valley have been busy wrapping the last of the gifts, enjoying each others’ company and eagerly awaiting the arrival of Santa Claus and his reindeer.

Snow is softly falling upon the little town in Doll Country. Nicki Fleming is wishing for a pair of skis. Courtney Moore wants a rad boombox for her cassettes.

Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate! And Happy Hanukkah too! I hope you all enjoy a lovely day tomorrow.

There is exciting news for the Edwards family. Mrs. and Mr. Edwards are expecting a baby! The whole family is thrilled and can’t wait to meet the new baby. They’ve been busy starting to get things ready for the arrival due around early February.

Samantha, Addy, and Rachel have been trying to stay on top of both their homework and their chores. Samantha and Rachel are both eager to meet their new little cousin and keep thinking of possible names that they suggest to their aunt and uncle.

I am working on adding the hairstyle tutorials back onto the website and so far have them for:

Addy’s Crossed French Braids

 Braid Within A Braid

Criss-Cross Pigtails

 Heidi Braids

Peggy’s Rock Star ‘Do

Have fun looking through them and trying them on your doll(s)! You can also find them under Your Doll Play up top.

 

Fall has arrived in Star Valley. The days have been starting to cool down and there are plenty of colorful leaves on the ground. Families are decorating for Halloween, many of the children are figuring out what costumes they’re going to wear, and the town is hoping to hold a Fall Festival.

Samantha enjoyed a lovely stroll through the town on her way home from school.

 

The Lion’s Pride Pub and Restaurant has recently started selling pizza to expand its menu offerings. The pizzas are wood-fired and taste delicious.

Margaux Benoit recently bought some pizza to bring home for a study sesh that she and her friend, Opal Ortega-Smith were having. Yum!

Happy New Year! I hope you are all enjoying the first month of 2022. All of my dolls are in the process of changing out of their holiday outfits. They had a wonderful holiday season, however it is time to put away the decorations and start decorating for Valentine’s Day! There has been a bit of a cold snap so many of the dolls have enjoyed cozying up inside for the past week.

Arrr, mateys!  ‘Tis Talk Like a Pirate Day once again, a day when you an’ yer dolls can pillage, plunder, look fer buried treasure, swashbuckle, an enjoy th’ high tide!

I have a treat fer ye scallywags an’ landlubbers alike.  I have fixed up and added back th’ first four Red Saga photo stories from over th’ years.  I also have a sort of brand new adventure.  I took photos for part five o’ th’ Red Star Saga back in 2016, however I didn’t get around to finishin’ writin’ th’ story.  I have just finished writin’ th’ story now an’ have posted this new adventure on th’ Photo Stories page which you can find under th’ My Doll Play section!

So sit back an’ enjoy readin’ up on th’ fun an’ silly adventures about th’ crew o’ th’ Red Star.
