    Today I accessed your website to look for some new AG crafts for my granddaughters and noticed that you no longer have printed instructions for the crafts. Have you switched your format to being YouTube videos only? (I’ve been recovering from major surgery and have been out of the loop for awhile I am the type that uses written instructions – I refer to the videos when I get “stuck” on a step. I really enjoy doing your crafts with my granddaughters. Best Regards, Nancy

    • Rudy October 3, 2019 at 5:55 am - Reply

      I only have printed instructions for large projects that are usually foam board or wood. Everything else is just the YouTube video and if there are printables those will be listed in the blog post. So glad you enjoy crafting with your granddaughters! It’s such a special experience.

    Do you use elmer’s foam board? I want to buy the cutting tools but not if you have to have special foam. I buy elmers foam board. PLEASE ANSWER!!!!!! thankyou!!!!

    • Rudy September 18, 2019 at 10:31 am - Reply

      You can use any brand foam board! Elmers is my favorite. Some foam board like from the Dollar store is slightly thinner making the measurements I give slightly off.

I love all of the different characters and monsters and how creative they all are! (my favorite has to be either Batsy Cloro or Elissabat AKA: Veronica VonVamp). Could you also do a video on fixing and customizing and old AG doll please? I wouldn’t want you to spend to much money on paint, so probably not customizing to look like monster high characters.

    Rudy, do you think you could do a video about all the AG Dolls your girls have? My sister and I want to know all their names 🙂 This is just a suggestion for a fun video that even your girls could help with 🙂 For example, they could each show their own dolls and say what their names are. (Or, if they share all the dolls, they could just switch off between each doll. Unless they don’t want to, of course.) Again, this is just a suggestion, and I understand that filming all the dolls could be overwhelming and could take a lot of work. IF you use this idea, could you put a Shout-out to my channel in the video? Just search “Olivia Wilson” to find my channel! Thanks!~Olivia Wilson
