    I am an adult collector and love to make the more sophisticated of your items for my scenarios. I’d like to make a suggestion for your printables. It would be more efficient and less wasteful if you put items that are to be printed on different types of media on separate pages of your pdf. For instance, a box (which is to be printed on cardstock) on a separate page from the packages for the items inside. Which by the way I print on the glossy paper that’s used for brochures. It is glossy, thin, and flexible. It’s perfect for granola bar wrappers for instance. I get it from my local Staples. Anyway love your stuff.

    hi i have an idea for a doll of the year.. make a doll that isn’t a stereo typical girly girl. I think a girl that plays hockey would be a great idea. this girl is more tomboy ish but yet she can still be emotional at times. maybe also bring in a mental health aspect like she has anxiety. maybe even a learning disability like dyslexia. just some ideas

    Hi. Love your website and ideas! I bought Maryellen couple of months ago beautiful doll. But I noticed that your doll and other sites that received free dolls from American girl for review and giveaways have more hair than my store bought Maryellen! Your doll in photo shoot looks like she’s wearing ag ponytail hairpiece. Even ag website photo looks longer. I lower my dolls ponytail stretch it out, comes nowhere near yours. I emailed pictures of my doll yours and another one. My doll has 9.5 ponytail. I might be just imagining, but thanks for any info on length of your doll hair.

    Hi! I love your website-you have some fun things! I wondered what your policy is for using your ideas/plans on making things for sale on an Etsy site. For instance, I am making lunch pieces out of polymer clay and would like to include some fruit snacks from your idea.
    Thanks so much!

      You are more than welcome to use my ideas. I just ask that the website get credit somewhere. Thanks 🙂
