American Girl Grace’s Pastry Cart I finally got around to opening Grace’s Pastry Cart.  It has been so busy around my house with the new year and the kids and I have been having so much fun with Grace and her accessories, that we actually forgot about it.  Somehow, since it’s packaged in a brown box and not the GOTY purple, it got stuck in a corner...

American Girl Grace Thomas Collection Since I have the entire Collection of Grace Thomas, I thought it would be fun to do a review on each item!  I did a separate video review for each item.  That way, if you are only interested in seeing one or so items, you don’t have to watch a long review of everything!  I always like to see an item up close before I...

Grace’s Bakery Bags Printable I made a few printables that resemble Grace’s Bakery Bags.  There are four items so far, two different bag sizes and two different box sizes.  Keep in mind they are not identical to Grace’s bakery bags.  I tried to make them as similar as possible.  I still might play around with the colors and designs, but I wanted...

Grace’s Bistro Set One of the new really cute pieces to the GOTY 2015 collection is Grace’s Bistro Set.  From the moment I saw it I knew I had to make a replica.  This set is meant to be used with the Bakery, as a sidewalk table so Grace can sit down and enjoy her freshly baked pastries.  The picture shows Isabelle on the left on the homemade Bistro...

American Girl Grace Thomas Bakery I just got back from the American Girl store in L.A.  It was CRAZY!   I got there two hours early and I still wasn’t even close to the front.  Details about the line later, right now it’s time to talk about the fun stuff.  Like the Grace Thomas Bakery!  My store said they only had eight and they didn’t even...

American Girl Doll Dresser I have been making an entire bedroom just for Grace Thomas.  When she joins our doll family, she will be able to enjoy having her own space.  Since her bed is done, the dresser was next.  I grabbed a cute wooden dresser from Hobby Lobby.  I sanded it down until it was completely smooth, and then painted it the same color I painted the...

Grace Thomas Hairbow Grace Thomas will be here tomorrow so I thought my daughter would love to give her a welcoming gift.  I did a hairbow tutorial a few weeks ago, but this one is different since it has the Grace Thomas Paris theme.  Don’t get me started on hairbows, I can make so many different styles and I love it!  But that’s for another day....
