The wall is actually wallpaper that looks like bricks
The aprons, actually napkins with ribbon hot glued to them
All the desserts where made by using sculpting clay and a You Tube tutorial
Carmel and Strawberry Frappuccinos
I made the Frappuccino machine from scrap galvanized tin that I folded and attached black electrical tape and foam for the lid
Again scrap tin, a marker and index card create the coolest menu board
A straw recycles as a rail on the counter top
I cut out the Starbucks logo and glued it to a piece of folded galvanized tin to create the counter top
Chocolate brownies with pecans and a Strawberry Frap hot glued to a Scrabble square

For the past two weeks I have been playing with my dolls alot. I am often most creative when I am thinking about projects and making very important decisions. And so, here is the result of last Thursday evenings trip to the drive thru with my son to Starbucks.. Enjoy!
A few years ago when I almost lost my fire for doll collecting(2011). I discovered a doll artist named Tanya Monegut. I loved the sassy hair, the boots..... I had to have one. I felt the dolls where so much like me. It took me months, but I tracked the artist down and then started communicatine with her via email. At the time she did not have any pieces avaliable... I lost track and it took me another year and half before I was able to track her down again on Etsy.com...so 3 years later I have finally found and purchased a doll from this wonderful artist. I must tell you she is nothing short of awesome. The work and craftsman ship is over and beyond..... I love my new couple, but have not decided on any names yet. Any suggestions?
This morning marks a significant day for me as a professional doll collector. I think I just acquired the most unique doll in my collection. I noticed the dolls about a month ago while researching voodoo dolls on Ebay. Since learning I am a descendant from the Benin and Togo area of Africa I have been researching about their religion and trying to understand it more. I have also learned that my line of work has exposed me to homes where families may openly practice Voodoo or Santeria.. Much to my surprise, I came across this very creepy yet, familiar looking doll set. At first I could not put my finger on it but, after reading the caption .. I quickly remember this 90s Horror flick that eventually became a Urban Hit and today.. considered a horror classic.. produced by non other than Spike Lee the 90s horror flick TALES FROM THE HOOD... WAS A CREEPY RENDITION OF TALES FROM THE CREEP.. And Me, Yes Me, I have just acquired this awesome doll set! I was so luck to run across an O…
I hope you had a chance to experience Luciana first hand January 1st in American Girl Stores. The weather kept a lot of fans at home. Me being the curious one and always wanting to experience the AG madness I trekked my way out in 30 degree weather and picked up a few goodies for myself.
Whenever AG does a doll release they give out the coolest items in the store... Luciana Vegas debut was no different. I was able to snag a very cool tee and a few Phases of the Moon Trackers.
Any of the items will become instant "to haves" for the collection because they where only given out that day.
I decided to do a Give A Way since many of our American Girl Addy Fans were note able to get out and get one..... I think the poster would be cool to laminated and display with your doll. I promised a video response this evening/night announcing the winner... Check it out below.
Drum Roll Please.............................................…
