Cups • When I’m Gone
I have to admit that ever since Grace Thomas joined our doll family we have been busy! She is so much fun to play with! From her baking to her outfits, everything is relatable and we absolutely love her. Does anyone else feel the same way about this GOTY? I mean, we have crafted for this doll every day! And it started before she even arrived! Her collection is just too cute for words, and the ideas just keep flowing. We can’t stop them!
My oldest daughter and I decided to have a little stop motion fun today. Stop motion is a lot of work so I knew when we started that I had to push through and finish. An entire day and a few cups of coffee later, it is complete. Since Grace is a baker and she has the travel theme, I felt that the song Cups with its music video was the best fit for Grace. The Cups music video displays a baker who has bigger dreams to travel and even shows a postcard of Paris. Perfect right?! Well, it’s not a perfect replica of the music video, and a large part of that is due to the fact that it’s hard to get an American Girls hands to cooperate with the props! But, we did the best we could and we love the results. The beautiful voice you hear in the video is my daughter’s. I thought it would be best for her to sing it since Grace is just a little girl herself. Also, the cups rhythm was also recorded by my daughter. We practiced that for a long time before we got it down to perfection. Can I say dedication?! My Launa rocks!
