INTRODUCING….

That’s right, my friends! Your dear spend-a-holic Hope has bought another doll. She’s not an AG Doll, and I bought her at Michaels with the last of my Christmas money! As some of you may know, I’ve been wanting to get an African American Doll, preferably TM #58. But when I was shopping in Michaels, this girl caught my eye, and I decided she would do. So, here she is!!!

HERE SHE IS!!!! … just kidding! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Silly Chrissa! This is Mandy Brinlie Flood!!!!! Welcome, Mandy!!!!!! She’s a Creatology Doll, and in my opinion they look younger than AG dolls, so that worked great, because Mandy is 10! Her hair is SUPER curly, and I’ll probably keep it up most of the time. If y’all have any tips for keeping curly haired dolls’ hair nice, I’d love to here them!!! Also, I’m keeping my doll family at 5 for now, unless I find an AG Doll at goodwill or something… in my dreams XD That’s all for now!

Nothing To Hide~Season One Part One~

Hello, all!!!! Here is the season premiere of my new photoseries, Nothing To Hide, or NTH. Basically, Chrissa is acting kinda strange, and the two “detectives”, Detective Merriman (Bethany) and Lealani (Lea), are gonna get to the bottom of it. It’s kinda like a follow-up for the mystery started in this post. I’m really sorry it took me so long, as I said before, WordPress wasn’t cooperating with me. πŸ˜‘ So, let’s get on with it!!!


Lealani’s POV<<<<<<<<
's what it said!" I had just finished explaining the strange postcard to Bethany. "HMMMM…. INTERESTING!" She had a strange look on her face. "I think it's time for a little detective work! I'll be right back!"<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
ff in a flash. I sat there waiting… and waiting… and waiting…. until finally she came back.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
ve you-" My mouth dropped open. "What on earth are you wearing, Mommy!?!?!?" She looked at me sharply. "It's my detective outfit, young Lea. And please, while I'm on the job, call me Detective Merriman." I rolled my eyes. "Fine. So what are we supposed to do, Detective Merriman?" I asked.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
We need to go spy on Suspect Number 1!" "Umm… who's that?" I was confused. "It's Chrissa!" She whispered, and started walking away. I sighed and followed her.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
d slowly up to Chrissa and Raven's room. Chrissa was still unpacking all her stuff. Evidently she couldn't decide where to put what. "Hey, Chrissa!" I said cheerfully. "Leee-aaaa! You just blew our cover!" Bethany scolded. I shrugged. "Oh, well…" she muttered. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<
looked up. "Oh, hi Bethany! Hi Lealani! Sorry for the mess! I was just tidying my room!" She smiled kindly. "Cool! Sooo, uhh…" Bethany started. Just then, Felicity yelled from upstairs. "Chrissa! Raven!!! Mami says we can go outside now!!" <<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Lissie!" Chrissa shouted back. "Sorry, guys! I have to go!" And with that, she grabbed her headphones and left.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
ur chance! We can look through her stuff now!" Bethany grinned. "Look through her stuff!?!? Why would we want to do that!?!?" I whined. I was starting to think that this wasn't such a good idea.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
vidence!" Bethany rolled her eyes and grabbed a bag, then plunked down on the bed. I reluctantly climbed up next to her. <<<<<<<<
ng.." <<<<<<<<
ship poster…" <<<<<<<<
hat is this strange thing?" Bethany wondered. "I don't know! Can we get out of here now? I feel like a trespasser!" I complained. "No, we need to-" Bethany started to say. But then, a harsh voice came from the doorway. <<<<<<<<
the world do you think you're doing!?!?" It was Chrissa.


DUN DUN DUN. YOU ARE GONNA GET WHATS COMIN TO YA BETHANY! JK πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ TO BE CONTINUED…

Sisters- Words by ME

So how did you guys like it? I LOVED taking pictures of Chrissa, and Raven’s hair was awesome in that bun!!! It was worth the cold weather. πŸ˜€ WordPress has been acting up lately, so I was going to post the first part of the new series, which will be titled Nothing To Hide, a few days ago, but it will be up as soon as possible! I’m also working on a post on the collab blog. πŸ˜ƒ

That’s all for now! Aka Hope πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

Hello, 2018

I wrote this on the collab blog, so I’m reposting it here!!! Happy new year, everyone!!!!!!!!!

Happy New Year, everyone!!!!

Here’s a poem I wrote:

Goodbyes and Hellos

Farewell

Goodbye

The year of 2017

Is gone

Forever

Never again will be

The hopes

The pain

The loss

The gain

Everything

But alas

The new year comes

So fast

We didn’t see it coming

It came too quick

But now

Ahead

Is a Year that’s full

Of fun

Of laughter

Of joy

And also

Trials

Tears

And sorrow

But through the year to come

Jesus is still king!

He reigns over everything!

He’s in control

Welcome 2018

Have a happy new year, everyone!!!!!

-Hope πŸ’–πŸ˜„πŸ˜

Decision

Hello, everyone! So I was sitting here thinking about my photoseries, The Girl In The Snow, and about how everyone was so intrigued by the little mystery that happened upon Chrissa’s arrival, and I came to a decision.

The Girl In The Snow is to be postponed.

Yep, you read that right. I hope that soon I get it up again, it is not gone forever! I will be putting the Chrissa mystery first, however, and it will be made into an unnamed photoseries. Once I am done with it, I will continue The Girl In The Snow.

I would like to know what y’all think about this.

Thank you guys so much for your input!

AND HAPPY ALMOST 2018!!!! What are you doing tonight?

Aka Hope πŸ˜‰πŸ’–
