I’m probably gonna lose a follower as soon as I post this, but thanks for 200 followers! I’m happy to see so many folks get something out of this blog, and I’m happy that nearly 2 years later, there’s a lot more AG blogs to find on tumblr :)
someday i’m going to own all the books for all the american girl dolls
just the books tho i don’t really want the dolls
except some of them have been discontinued (like samantha who was like my second favorite)
but someday i’ll own them all
You know that even if the doll is retired, their main book series and mysteries are still around, right? So even though Sam, Kirsten, Felicity and (soon) Molly are retired, you can still get their meet/lesson/holiday/birthday/summer/changes books and whatever mysteries they had published. Hell, AG even wrote another mystery book for Sam even though she’s retired!
Only books that’ll take some extra effort in getting are the short stories, older versions of the main books if you want the original illustrations, and their cook/craft/play/scrap books since they’re out of print.
Happy 118th Birthday, Nellie O’Malley!
Hey, looks like I share the same Birthday as Nellie! (●´∀｀●)
If you’re seeing this message, that means the queue is empty! I’m back in college at the moment so posts are going to be a bit more sparse again. I’ll update when I can (local library has some short stories I’ve yet to scan), but I won’t be able to post any more magazine scans until winter break.
If anyone ever wants to submit something, be it scans of something or fanworks, feel free to do so!
Oh hey someone read my tags >w<
Caroline: Somewhat. I think I’m good with facing my fears if I’m scared about something that needs to be done, but I don’t know how I’d react to a more serious life-or-death situation. The bravest thing I think I did was go to the grocery store (and off campus) on my own for the very first time in my freshmen year of college despite my rampant paranoia at the time (I’m not from the area and I had a hard time judging to what extent student’s warnings about the neighborhood were true). Rather lame, I know.
Rebecca: I have a bunch, but I really enjoyed the 2011 Tintin movie. It was a good adaptation of the original comics and a great adventure movie. The scene where they chase after the three papers through out the city was especially awesome.
I’m in the process of stuffing the queue to the brim with posts, most of them being magazine crafts as requested by a previous anon, though I do also have a bunch of non-craft articles/historical character stuff that’ll be put in-between craft articles to break up the monotony.
If you’re not a fan of the AG magazine content, then you may want to block the AG magazine tag for a while…..
He had a portfolio site, and I admit I was initially annoyed by this message since I’ve googled his name and found the site immediately in the past before, but it seems the domain ran out so the site’s down :’(
I did find this interview that shows off some of his other drawings, though (and who knew he was also an actor?)
Aw man, that sucks about your old magazines :’(
I’m traveling right now so I can’t do scans of anything atm, but I’ll add in the craft articles to my list of ‘things I need to scan in and post when I get back’!
Hey everyone! Sorry I haven’t uploaded anything in a while. There are some old AG magazine articles I’d like to share and I have another batch of short story illustrations to share, I just need to get my butt over to the scanner :P
In the meantime, I thought I’d share an old screen shoot I took a while ago that I found amusing.
I felt these two posts capture the two main types of adult fans of American Girl stuff: those who feel awkward about wanting to buy AG dolls (either due to cost, ‘it’s meant for kids/girls’, etc.), and those who stopped caring about that long ago.
1. Can’t share what I don’t have, sorry! :( If anyone who follows this blog have some of the old AG magazine paper dolls, it would be super cool if you could scan them in and share it!
2. How should I know? If they do end up having illustrations, I wouldn’t scan them in because a) not interested and b) this blog is dedicated to American Girl stuff. Even though Valerie Tripp is involved in it, its not related in any way to the AG company.
