Madison, I need to talk with you on ag4eva.
MADI! i’m not eligible for aghmb. Why not? I MUST DO IT! I just HAVE to! :(
I TRIED ALL OF THEM AND I’M NOT ELIGIBLE! why ME?
I think you have to put in a fake age. Make your-year-you-were-born-in “2000” and it will allow you to register. Make sure your verification image and email are typed correctly, also.
How can I interview you?
I got your email! I’ll reply with my answers to your questions ASAP. :)
I am registered, I am not approved. When I am, I will figure out how to PM you, okay?
Also, could you please refer to me as a crazy AG/Jesus/Cat lover? XD
HOW MANY CRAZY PEOPLE ARE THERE?!
I am on AG avenue too. PLEASE PM me!
Whats Ur name on G4J madi?
let me rephrase that: What is the link for G4J madi? and ur Name?
I pmed you on agforeva! :)
Would you like to do a guest post on your blog? I can do a guest post for yours.
Is a guest post where other people post on the blog or something? I’m not sure. I’ll have to ask my dad about it. :)
I PMed you on AG4eva again ;) this time it is kind of urgent, and wanted to talk :)
Madi, a guest post is where they send you email or something, and you post it.
oh ok. Thanks. Well I can’t do guest posts on this site. So sorry Dollsondablog! :(
I guess you could post on my blog and do it that way…. I can just add you as a writer and when you’re done I can remove you.
me and my family were going on a electronic fast for the last month, which means no computer, so when i tried to get on the american girl fan message board this morning, it said that it was disabled. can you tell me what in the world i missed????? i am soooo confused right now. Thanks,
Some people got hacked and they made a post about it and they cursed and stuff. It was awful. I wasn’t there, but Madcat told me. I think Liz is either fixing or getting rid of it. :(
hi this is piper
I hate the fact that on ag4eva you have to provide your email. I registered with my email but will delete it as soon as possible.(delete email)

WordPress won’t let me post this until now because “it looks like you already said that” and I didn’t.
Yay it posted!
The owner of AG4Eva is super nice. (Jackie) If you ask her, I’m sure she can make an account for you because I know a lot of girls Either don’t have emails or aren’t allowed to use theirs for that kinda stuff. :)
aghomeschool.boardhost.com can be out up there too. :D I give permission. :)
Hi I haven’t talked to you in FOREVER! I miss all of you ( AGFMB ) but now I’m on”agig” ( american girl Instagram ) I was hoping sometime we could email each other soon…. I’m still in touch with homeschoolgirl21dolls and have gotten one new doll since the message bord was shut down…. Bye….
Ok here I an since I can’t post on the I’m sick thread! Sorry it turned into a debate. I was trying to share what I know but I guess I got a little bossy. Sorry.
I’m sorry if I started to get a little too much about the dolls coming back thing. I just get a little excited and stressed out sometimes :P
So, yeah, I’m really sorry :?
Super duper sorry madi and jaclynn. And natkaya.
I’m the oldest sister and help with my brother and sisters homeschooling and stuff and so I get a little bossy sometimes.
It’s okay :) And I’m also sorry to you, if I annoyed you or something. I hope I didn’t :?
And I don’t think you sounded bossy :)
No. You were perfectly sweet. Oh ok. Good! :D
Update – OOPS! I said to PM the member MadCat when you’re on AG Homeschool and Girls 4 Jesus. I forgot that my username on Girls 4 Jesus is God’sGirl. Sorry if anyone got confused. LOL! I’m fixing that right now.
And even though the topic is a month old, (I never saw these comments lol) I just wanted to say it’s really no problemo on the “Blahh, sick day” post comments! :)
Yeah, same on the comment thing :) (idk how I missed those :P)
do you have a email address?
Do you have a gmail or yahoo, or hgmail? As you can see I have a gmail.
I do have a gmail account as I needed to have a Google+ to have my youtube however I am not allowed to e-mail just for fun unfortunately. :(
that stinks. :(
I am registered, I am not approved yet, (on ag homeschool). I’m new to this so it may take a while to PM you. :) ~Leah
I am a moderator on AG Homeschool so I approved you!
I can’t do either of those :( But I was wondering: do you have any tips for beginning bloggers?
Oh :( I might add a contact form soon so everybody can contact me, even without an e-mail or extra signing up or stuff.
My #1 tip is to be yourself! You are blogging because you like it. Commenters will give you suggestions, and that’s great if you listen to them and then end up doing a post a lot of people like! But remember your blog is YOURS and YOU post what you want on it. Welcome constructive criticism to make your blog better for other people, but remember to be yourself! :) Wishing you lots of commenters and readers for you awesome blog!
I think you should put a contact form on this page cause I don’t think anyone is allowed to do either of those options… Like me :)
-Does a happy dance- Your blog is so awesome! :) I’d love to interview you on my blog, thatssomebysophia.blogspot.com. Do you email? If so, shoot me one at email@example.com. :) Keep up the WONDERFUL work!
Thanks!! Unfortunately, I don’t e-mail. :( Sorry! :( Thanks, I’m so glad you like my blog! :D
How do I follow you?
I contacted you on GIRLS4Jesus. SOS!
I replied to you and fixed the thing on AGH!
Thank you sooooo much! Why did that happen? I am on my mom’s tablet so I can’t log on.
I don’t know why that’s happening to you, I’m still looking into it. Have you tried re-booting your computer?
Hi! I have a question about making doll stopmotion videos. In your videos your dolls are able to nod their heads and blink. How do you do that because I would like to try it too. Also how do you put music in the background of the video?
Hi! To make my dolls nod, I make sure their neck strings are loosened a little. That makes their head able to turn more easily and can nod a little. To make them blink, is a little tricky, but you stick part of their eyelash and put it into their eye socket. Here’s a few links to some example photos:
And here’s a link to a video.
Basically, with your thumb you take your eyelash and stick it down. Hopefully that makes sense.
And, to put music and add stuff to your video you need some form of a movie editor. Good luck!
Thank you for the tips. I already have a movie editor so I will add music. I will try what you said about nodding the head and blinking. bye!
Ok I tried the nodding and blinking it worked.Yay! I can’t wait to make more stopmotions. Bye!
I am SO glad it worked for you! Hope you have tons of fun making more stop motions! ^_^
I made my stopmotion about April fools day. I love making stopmotions. I can’t wait to make more!
That is awesome! I know it turned out great! Is t AGSMing fun?? :D
Hi Madi. So anyway I was looking at your inner star university thing. I lost the codes for my look alike doll and it said I could ask you how you got full access even though you don’t have a look alike doll. I would like to know how you did that because I lost my codes :(
Aw, that stinks you lost the code! :( On Christmas morning 2011, I had just opened Molly and was hoping I’d get an ISU with her. My dad and I didn’t know only the modern dolls got the ISU code, so we called American Girl and they e-mailed us an ISU code for free and sent the charm necklace in the mail later.
Ok thanks! I’ll ask if we can call the AG store.
I asked my mom and she said yes. But she said she would call another day because we’re busy right now. I am so excited. The day I got my look alike I went on the website and it was fun so I am very excited.
That’s awesome! Good luck on your call, I really hope AG gives you the codes!! :D
You’re welcome! Good luck!
Hi how did you get the music you had in your I love dancing AGSM? I liked the music and I want to use it for a doll stopmotion.
Hi Emily! It is by Kim Clement, part of his Instrumental Psalm’s album. The two songs in the I love Dancing AGSM are ‘Eternity’ and ‘Song of Hope.’ It costs money to buy it on iTunes, but I haven’t gotten any copyright issues with it so I think it’s OK to use.
Oops I typed my question twice!
That’s OK! I’ll delete the extra ;)
Hi Madison. I was wondering if I could put one of your doll stopmotion videos on my website.
Hi, Emily! Of course you can – just be sure to give me credit for them where you can. Thanks so much for asking! :D
Ok thanks. Bye.
Do you recommend Saige? I’m thinking of getting her. I might get Isabelle or GOTY 2007. What doll would be best. I like them all the same.
Yes, I recommend Saige! She is a lovely doll. The choice is really up to you, but if I didn’t already have Saige I would choose her. She is wonderful! Either her, or GOTY 2007 (SHE IS SO CUTE! I don’t have her…but I wish I did ;)).
Ok I think I have decided. I’ll het saige. Also can you pray for me because my grandma is in the hospital. She had a heart attack. She is doing better but I hope she will be okay.
I’m glad you decided on the perfect doll for you! :-) I prayed for your grandma, let me know who she is doing. <3
She is doing a lot better! she is home from the hospital and we are going to visit her after church on Sunday.
I am so glad that she’s doing a lot better! Have fun visiting her!
Hi I just wanted to say thank you for making this awesome website. I go on it almost everyday. My mom saw two of your stopmotions. She saw deeper than any dolls gone before and the dance. She loved them. You are very good at making them. They are all super cute and they are all clean! I can always trust you because all the videos are clean. I wish we could be friends in real life. That would be super cool! We could play dolls together! Bye and thanks for creating this awesome doll website and YouTube channel.
Aw! Reading this comment made my day. You are so sweet, Emily. Thanks so much! I’m so glad you can trust this site and my videos – I do work hard to make them clena and safe! I wish we could meet in real life too – I know it would be so fun! <3
I’m glad my comment made your day! bye!
I have a question about making ag doll stop motions. The stop motions I make always take up a lot of space on my iPad and I have to keep on deleting my old stop motions. My parents might buy more space. If I ever got a YouTube channel could I delete my stop motions on my iPad and still be able to watch them on YouTube?
Yes, once you upload them you can delete them, and will still be able to watch them on YouTube. To help maximize your space, you could consider getting an app and making the AGSM’s in there – it helps me with my space a little better on my iPad mini. The app is called iMotion HD (I might have told you or someone else this already, bust just in case) :-).
Thank you so much! I have actually been wondering that question for awhile now. I am going to try Imotion. HD. Thank you!
No problem! I hope you have fun making AGSM’s! :D
All my friends think it’s annoying when I talk about AG dolls and when I talk about your awesome YouTube and your blog. They think I’m to obsessed with AG dolls. Is it ok to like AG dolls? Most girls at my age don’t really play with ther dolls anymore. I use to think a lot of people still played with them because I still go to elementary school. I still love dolls is it ok to play with them?
I’m 12, and I still LOVE AG! Don’t let them bother you…you do what you love, and play with dolls all you want. If nobody else at your school plays with dolls, hey, you always have us here at DWOD… <3
(P.S. That makes me smile to know you share my blog and youtube with others! :-) )
Thanks! Also I do love your blog and YouTube! I never thought that there would be a Christian who loves AG dolls as much as I do! Thankyou I will continue to play with dolls!
YW, and I’m so glad you like my blog and channel! <3
My mom has a camera that I can use for stopmotions and videos and my dad found a tripod that fits the camera but I don’t have any editing systems on our computer because we have windows 7 i think. Would an apple computer or laptop have a free editing software on it? I don’t have an apple computer but maybe I can get one for Christmas or a birthday.
I think so – I don’t remember whether my dad had to pay for iMovie or whether it just came with the Apple program computer thingy… Would you be able to get/buy Windows Live Movie Maker? I don’t know how much it costs, though, but it’s probably worked with your computer (if its Windows.)
Thankyou for the help! I am not sure if I can buy windows live movie maker on our computer but I will see.
No problem! I hope you can get a movie editing program. Have fun with the AGSM’s! :D
Hi! I was wondering if you would like to apply to see if you could get a spot as a blogger on my joint blog. The blog will be about fashion, writing, photography, and strength in faith. You can choose which subject you would like to do. This is totally up to you! I am just looking for more people to apply so I can find the perfect 3-4 bloggers to help me with my joint blog. :)
Here is the link to the survey to apply : https://allie32.typeform.com/to/BK10xJ
Hi Allie! I’ll have to pass on this one, but I hope your joint blog turns out spectacular!
I can’t use those things.:( :( :(
Do you have like an email or something we can use to chat to each other with?
I am going to set up a contact box soon where you can send me a message right from Delightful World of Dolls, so hopefully I’ll have it up soon and we can talk through there! :D
I just wanted to tell you about a GIFT SWAP that I’m having on my blog Spreading My Joy. I would love it if you could be a participant! :)
Hi, Allie! The idea sounds really cool. I hope you get a lot of enterees (like you said in your post, that’s not a word. LOL!). Unfortunately, I won’t be able to do it, but wishing you the best of luck and hoping it turns out amazing!
Hi! My name is Maddison too except with one more d! Could you check out my blog? It’s http://www.godsbrightlight.wordpress.com. I love your blog!
Hi! I’ll check out your blog as soon as I can when I get back in town. Thanks for visiting my blog!
Hi!! I’m not allowed to join any forums, but I was wondering if I could ask you a quick question right here? So, Loren from Happy House of AG says that you are wonderful at iPhone photography. I was wondering if you could give me any tips? Thank you! :)
Hi, Bella! Sure, I’ll be glad to give you some tips. :)
1. If your iPhone has focus, be sure to tap whatever-you-want-the-photo-to-be-focused-on on the iPhone screen. That way, it will be clearer.
2. Whatever camera you have, you can experiment with angles. They’re fun to play around with and can add depth to a picture.
3. If you have an editting software, or if your iPhone is newer enough to have an edit option on the photo, enhance your photo before posting it. It will be automatically more saturated and lighter/darker, depnding on the photo. Whenever I use an iPhone to take my pictures, I always enhance it before posting it – it makes the photo look tons better!
4. A tripod that fits your iPhone helps to keep it steady. The picture will be blurry if the iPhone isn’t held very still. If you don’t have a tripod, you can hold it on a stack of books or a box, or whatever fits your needs for that picture. I usually just rest my elbows on my knees or the floor when I’m crouching down to take pictures of my dolls and that keeps it steady.
5. Practice makes progress! The more you experiment and play around and the more photos you snap the more and more experienced you become. You’ll find out what works best for you and what other tips you discover.
Hope those might’ve helped you! :D
Mom PMed you, madcat, on the doll dwelling!
Madi, your inbox is full @ AGH. How do I know this? I signed up there. I’m Amazing Taylor there. ;)
Whoops! Sorry, that happens a lot. XD. You signed up? AWESOME! I haven’t been online lately (been traveling at preaching at churches, so that took up a lot of my week) so that’s why there aren’t many recent posts from me. XD I’ll get on soon though :D .
Hello, Dancer! :D
Do you wanna go do roleplay on AGH?
Now’s not a convenient time, but yeah, ASAP! It’s getting really funny. ?
Hi Madison, I was wondering: can I still send letters to your P.O box? I wasn’t sure, because it isn’t on your contact page. Thanks! :)
Oh yes, of course! :D I keep forgetting to put the P.O. box address on the contact page… :P
Hey Madi! I have never commented on your blog before, but I read it a lot. I just made my own blog called Dolls by the Dozen. Would you check it out and comment?
Thank you so much for commenting, Christina! I just checked out your blog and followed — it’s awesome!
MADI! YOU LIVE AN HOUR AWAY FROM ME! *DIES* We could meet up at AGP Orlando sometime!
OH MY GOODNESS REALLY?! *also dies* That is SO cool! We should totally do that! :D :D :D
Hi Madison! How do you keep the curly hair on your dolls curly?
Ooh, I should do a tutorial on that, shouldn’t I? But here are my tips!
• I don’t brush out the hair of my curly-haired dolls; I try to be as gentle as possible with an AG hair pick and spritzer.
• I don’t leave their hair in non-curly hairstyles for long. I try to revert their hair back to full and original curls as soon as possible.
I hope that helps!
Hi guys I posted a video on my channel you check out camp lakeveiw on Dolls in God’s world. There is going to be a part 2 soon.
Madi, I sent you an email last week that’s called “Picture from A long time ago”. Its pretty old. I can’t believe how long it was… have a great day!
Sorry I never replied to this comment, Vicky! Did I reply to your email?
Hi Madi! My mom and i are so happy to hear you back again! She always said to me that God is Good all the time. Thats why i am so happy to hear that you are back and if only i could meet you in person but i couldnt ,for now, since i am all the way back here in Manila,philippines. Im just happy you are back!!!! Jamie,9yo
Jamie, I’m so sorry I never saw this! I’m so glad you like my blog and I’m so grateful you enjoy it. God is so good!!! It’s always awesome to hear from you! <3
So I am making my website on WordPress right now and I need to know how to put pictures of my dolls on it and when I try to it says no data supplied so can you give me some tips? And also can I have comments on my site for free?
What kind of computer do you have? I upload my photos like this:
1. I plug in my phone, or the memory card of my camera, into my computer.
2. The app Photos on my computer pops up and I select the photos I want to upload and hit Upload.
3. I drag the photos to a folder I’ve made on my desktop.
4. Once I’ve started a blog post, I hit “Media” and then “Upload” and I click the folder I made. Then I select the photos and upload them!
And yes, comments on your WordPress site are free!
Hello Madi, I have a question for you
What do you think on the new AG book “Body Image“ my parents stoped buying from AG because of this, (look at some of the reviews) it’s basically saying you can be a girl or a boy or a cat or dog. My mom says it’s not how God created us, and I agree AG isn’t the same as it used to be, what are your thoughts on this?
Hey Sofia! I just saw photos of those pages in the book this morning. It’s so sad! I’m a little surprised, but I figured this would eventually come. AG’s CEOs have changed many times in the last few years, and their decisions and content have become more and more ungodly. I agree, AG isn’t the same as it used to be. I haven’t been buying many recent things from AG as the quality, historical accuracy, and general charm just isn’t the same. For my collection I’m focusing on buying nostalgic things from AG’s older collection, like Pleasant Company or early Mattel, from secondhand sites. You’re right, the ideology they’re promoting is not how God created us, and it’s very sad that they are pushing it onto young girls! It’s just not the same old AG I know and love.
Yes, I am only buying stuff from AG on eBay from older stuff, I am hoping to get some stuff for Julie. It’s so sad that it’s American Girl that’s doing this! And yes not the same AG I know, I even grew up knowing the “Beforever” and “Mattel” AG but I love the Pleasent Company better. It’s so sad it’s the not real American girl anymore, and they’ve never been Christian anyways but this is just not how God created us! We were made to be girl or boy! We can’t change that! I just am so sad today!
Same here! It’s just not the same. And me too — I grew up knowing the Mattel era and then BeForever, but I really like Pleasant Company and early Mattel era better. You’re completely right! They were never a Christian company, but I miss when their products were more God-honoring, or at least not so outrightly against Christian values. Probably because when AG first started, our culture was more God-honoring than it is nowadays!
