The Story So Far

My doll adventure wraps through the stories of four dolls – Daisy, Camellia, Rosie, and Lily.

On Mondays, I publish new installments. Here’s the story so far:

rosie-starts-to-fall Rosie’s Adventure Begins: Rosie is my one “kid” doll, and she’ll have more kid-like adventures than my other dolls. That means both that I won’t put her in danger (no ocean journeys for Rosie) and that many of her adventures are pure flights of fancy. This one, though, is just a little moment in her life – a fledgling attempt to be a “big girl” and a big hairy dog to rescue her when that attempt fails.
