The holiday season has pretty much arrived and I thought I would find myself with loads of free time on my hands like last year. I imagined myself gaining inspiration for and writing in my work-in-progress novel, swinging outside while listening to music, sipping hot cocoa while reading a book by the Christmas tree, and getting together as many presents as I can possibly buy or make for my family and friends just because it’s so fun to give things away. I also envisioned myself not spending too much time on my blog.

Unfortunately, that just doesn’t seem to be the case this year. It’s the craziest thing, guys!


*not my official work calendar

In the midst of all the hustle and bustle, I look at the calendar on my computer one day and happen to notice that Christmas is in less than two weeks and I haven’t bought or even made a single Christmas present for my family or friends.

Heh, heh.


That’s what I get for trying to pack so much stuff in this December. ;) But I can’t help it! I have big plans for DWOD, and time just seems to have fun escaping from me. ;)

It’s times like these when I’m glad I have tons of photoshoots stored up. I do have posts planned; many of them. ;) But they are multiple, completely different quality-over-quantity posts and projects in the makings – and none of them are finished yet. :P

Thus, the first Monday of the month rolled around and I found myself two days later realizing I hadn’t published a mini doll post even though I had planned on one. WHOOPS AGAIN! I hope you don’t mind this Mini Doll Monday a week late. :P


I also hope you enjoy this photoshoot! I grabbed my camera and Emma for a quick photoshoot when it was getting pretty late one day this past November. I thought the photos wouldn’t turn out very well, but I liked the shoot so much that Emma has a new profile picture from it! (Many of the other dolls have new profile pictures, too!)

Now, enough of my rambling and onto the photoshoot. ;) Don’t worry, there aren’t a bunch of random photos – I edited down to eleven of my filtered favorites. ;) I hope you like ’em!

e1She looks like she’s in the jungle!

e2Even more jungle-y! :P

e3She is absolutely gorgeous! I actually have a little confession to make about her…

e4I had wanted her for a very long time, and when I finally got her last year from my little brother, I realized she wasn’t everything I had hoped for her to be. :P Her hair wasn’t very style-able and would get messy fast. Because it was so short, it was hard to do much with it at all.

e5But when I took these photos on November 19th, I realized that all you need to spark your interest in a doll again is a new hairstyle!

e6(SHE IS SO PRETTY! AHH!) You can work with any doll’s hair. This particular style took a bit of work with her short hair even though it was so simple, but the finished result was SO. CUTE! :D

e7This picture represents Emma perfectly! Emma is a thoughtful dreamer. Doesn’t she look so dreamy? :D

e8I love this one! I should’ve made this her new profile picture. :P

e9She looks so calm and relaxed and… thoughtful. And serene.

e10I made this her new profile picture, but it was so hard to pick one! Emma’s first photoshoot turned out really well in my opinion. I can’t wait to take the other minis out and snap new photos for their profiles, too! It was fun to experiment with the different lighting. If you’re curious, these pictures were taken from 6:36 PM to 6:53 PM.

e11Emma wishes you all a very Merry Christmas! :D

Before you go… I have a few boring announcements that nobody reads anyway. ;)








Did you have a favorite picture? Are you excited for any of the things coming up next?
