About Me

Hello! My name is Amaya, and welcome to my blog! Here is a little about me so you can get to know me better:

 My favorite colors are black and blue
I love to cook
I want to be an astronomer someday
I love animals
I have two pets (dog and hamster)
I like to clean
I love tea (hot or cold)
I have braces

Here is a brief story about how I got into blogging:

 One day I decided to look up: "American girl doll craft ideas" on Google.
Thousands of results came up. I clicked on this one blog, and thought it was amazing. She had crafts, recipes, and more. she also happened to be into AG, and so she would post really nice pictures of her dolls. I decided that I wanted to make a blog too! In March of 2013, I asked my parents if I could make a blog. They said it would be a lot of responsibility, and it was. I was up to the challenge, and so that very night I made a blog. My mom and I made a banner for my blog using photoshop, and I was really having fun playing around with my new blog. After one week, I decided to make my first post. After a few weeks of posting, I got my first follower....my second follower.....my third follower.......and so on! I started visiting some great blogs, and I was super motivated to post! After a few months, I had 25 followers! I decided to host my first giveaway, I was so excited! I posted crafts, photoshoots, and more. I loved blogging. I really enjoy posting different doll-related posts for you all to see. I want to thank whoever is reading this, because you guys are awesome! :)

  2. Hi! It's Silver. I like the way you re decorated your blog! That wicker chair is so cute! I hope I can find one this summer. You and I are very alike! I like to sew, play Minecraft, I love decorating and re modeling, and I can't live without the same things! I also collect something weird. Kleenex boxes, and fuzzy socks. FUZZY!!!! Lol :) -Silver

    5. I like gymnastics,I can do cartwheels and summer salts and other stuff!I used to take gymnastics!I can't anymore,according to the chiropractor.

      Delete
    6. Wow! More gymnastics fans! I LOVE gymnastics! I had to wait two years until my dream came true and I finally found a gym that was cheap enough for me and my family. The wait paid off though, because during that time, I trained and practiced what I knew at home. Right know I am at Girl's Silver Level and can't wait until the day after tomorrow 'cause then it's GYM TIME!

  11. Could u put up some doll blogs that u like?????

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi! That's a good idea, I might not be doing it though. Some people might get their feeling hurt if they don't see their blog because I read a BUNCH of doll blogs and I like all of them! :) So it would be a little too hard for me to keep up with all the doll blogs I read! Thanks for commenting though!

      Delete
    2. OK, that makes sense. I like it when people don't want to hurt other people's feelings! ;)

  16. Hi! Just make sure you are logged into your gmail then go to your blogger dashboard. And just click on the little pencil icon like you normally would to make a post. Under the title box, there are some tools. There is one icon that looks like one of those black and white clap thingies that they use in the movies, then next to it is a little picture. Click on the picture icon then just make sure you have your pictures you would like to use downloaded on your computer then look through your files and select the pictures you want. Hope this helps! You can email me at amayapaes at gmail dot com
    if you have any other questions. :)

  40. I just came across your blog and you are so talented. I have a 6 yr old daughter and she is starting to get into AG dolls. I have several that I had when I was a kid that I have passed on to her. We really enjoy looking at your blog and trying the crafts you do. I might be an adult but I love dolls and making crafts. I love to repurpose things and your blog gives me great ideas. Good luck in the future, it sounds like you are a great young lady and have a bright future ahead of you. Thanks for everything! Oh yea I have that same retired desk you featured in your doll bedroom, I think it's at least 20 yrs old!! Do you have the computer that goes with it?
