All the beaches are closed because of stinkin’ quarantine so my toca life person, Calista decided to do a photo shoot in her huge backyard.
Which Quarantine Character are You?
Hey everyone! Sorry I haven’t wrote in a while. My laptop broke and we had to fix it. Don’t worry! I’ll be trying to post at least once a week. Maybe more! Anyways, our life has been kind of crazy lately with the coronavirus shutdown. This is going to be a famous moment in history someday so that’s why a lot of people are journaling right now.
Types of Quarantine Characters:
The Quarantine Gala is showing off her looks for the coronavirus like stylish masks.
The Tik Toker is making a lot of tik toks of her dancing in her free time. My parents don’t let me have a phone or social media, sadly 😦 .
The Gamer is buying and playing games before they are sold out. In fact my family bought one of the last Nintendo Switches in stores because my little brother, Eiv, age 3, threw our old one on the floor because he was angry.
The Snacker is always hoarding snacks and relaxing because they don’t have to wrk or go to school.
The Business Casual is always working for their job even though almost everyone else is freaking out right now.
Post in the comments which one you are. I think I would be the gamer but my parents only let me blog, not play video games, on the weekdays.
Thanks for reading!
Taking some cats to the vet
Today we are taking two cats to the vet: Moonshadow and Hattie. We are taking Moonshadow to the vet for a checkup so she can go to her new home today. We are taking Hattie to the vet because she’s sick. I’ll update this post later to tell you what happens.
Lemon-Glazed Sugar Cookies
So remember I promised you I’d give you a couple recipes from the cookies I like? Well here’s on of them:
Servings: 36 Makes: 3 dozen Active Time: 40 min Total Time: 1 hour 10 min
For the Cookies
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 2/3 cup granulated sugar 1 large egg 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
For the Glaze
2 cups confectioners’ sugar 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons lemon juice (or water) 1 teaspoon finely grated zest
1. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper. 2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Mix in the egg and vanilla. Reduce mixer speed to low and add flour mixture, mixing until fully combined. 3. Shape the dough into a disk then roll in between two sheets of parchment paper until 1/4-inch thick. Cut out shapes and use a small offset spatula to transfer to prepared cookie sheets. Reroll scraps and cut out. chill cut-out shapes on baking sheets until firm or for 20 minutes. 4. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 11 to 15 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through. Let cool on baking sheets. 5. Once cool, make the glaze. In a small bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and lemon zest. Add rest of lemon juice, a little at a time, to make the glaze. 6. Set up a wire rack over a baking sheet. Working one at a time, dip one side of a cookie into the glaze, and gently shake off the excess then place on the rack. Sprinkle over the desired toppings. Let dry completely. You can store glazed cookies at room temperature up to 3 days or unglazed cookies in the freezer up to three months.
TIPS There’s no wrong way to decorate cookies! My siblings like to stamp out and decorate the cookies we make. You can stamp out the cookies with different cookie cutters.

AG Advent Calendars
Okay. I know it’s not Christmas anymore but I had this idea for a while now and forgot to post it on my blog. Besides, if you’re reading this around Christmas or are pretending it’s Christmas for your dolls, then I guess this post is fine. Samantha is “writing” this post today.
Hello, this is Samantha! Today, I’m going to tell you what we did for advent calendars! These will definitely keep you and your doll excited for the holidays!
1. Colorful Envelopes (I used this one)
Gather up some AG-sized colorful envelopes/envelopes colored on, washi tape, stickers, pom-poms, and stamps, and use mini push-pins to stick them onto a piece of corkboard. Number each envelope and place a small treat or a slip of paper with a fun holiday-themed to-do inside. Save the candy for the last few days, because otherwise, if it’s not candy, your doll might be disappointed if they got candy before then.
2. Stacked Up (Blaire and Emerson used this one)
Convert small old boxes, wooden drawers, and small tins into a fun count-down calendar. Fill each can and box with a Christmas treat, and then paint them with red, orange, and with stripes. Use number stickers to attach to each of the boxes and cans, then stack on your doll’s desk.
3. Countdown Calendar (Melody and Julie used this one)
Recycle some toilet-paper tubes into this snowy Christmas countdown.
What you’ll need: 12 cardboard tubes, paint, snowflake stickers, piece of corkboard, tape, mini clothespins, yarn, marker
Make it: Cut each toilet-paper tube in half. Tape one end of your tubes shut. Then paint your tubes white and let dry. Put a snowflake sticker on each tube. Write numbers on your tubes with a blue marker. Wrap yarn around the corkboard and tape the ends in place—-make rows to fit all the days. Using mini clothespins, hang all the tubes onto the yarn.

I also like American Girl doll things. I made a whole entire school set for her from scratch. The doll I have is Samantha Parkington.
I also like dollhouses and miniatures. I like making tiny things too.
For some odd reason I also like Barbies and Play-Doh.
