How I Got Started

stuffie-adventures-first-post-snip
First ever post on SA…

 

I met my friend Light4TheLord quite a few years ago at a competition, but lost contact. ย ๐Ÿ˜ฆ While stalking her on Google+ (hehe), however, I saw her link to a post on her doll blog, Dolls N’ All.ย Naturally,ย I had to click it. XD

It was from that I learned that doll blogs existed. I adored (and binge read…) the posts over at Dolls N’ All and soon discovered that they weren’t the only ones out there. I realized that toy blogging was what I had been looking for for a long time. Ever since I was little, my sister and I had made up (rather silly) pretend games with them…and I had always wanted a way to share their stories with others. I had a feeling my little obsession could turn into something pretty amazing.

So in December of 2016, I created my own little corner of the web on WordPress. It was a private blog all about our two favorite teddy bears: Polby and Dwuff. I had a blast with it!ย After that, though, we had problems with our accounts. I decided to create a new blog featuring ALL of our stuffed animals instead of just those two – Stuffie Adventures! The rest, I guess, is history.

My Advice

  1. Don’t compare yourself.ย #cliche. It’s true though! Don’t try to be THIS blogger or THAT blogger…and don’t be afraid to put your own creative and unique twist on things. I can struggle with this sometimes, since stuffies are so much different than dolls, and there are practically no stuffed animal blogs on the web. The thing is, though, that YOU can do this however YOU like. Try to develop the right balance between what you like to do and what your readers like you to do.
  2. It’s quality, not quantity.ย #clicheagain. It’s awesome if you have the ability to post every single day or something close, but are those posts the best quality you can manage?

Okay. That’s done. Now…how am I supposed to nominate 15 bloggers?? *dies*

If you can’t live without chocolate you are nominated.

Wellย that solves all my problems.

sunshine-blogger-graphic-original

Questions:

  1. Do you have a pet?

Hmm, nope! My siblings and I have always wanted a puppy…but my mom doesn’t like animals in the house. ๐Ÿ˜€

2. What would you tell your younger self if you could go into the past?

Ugh! To be less cringey! (Grammarly, stop, cringey is a word).

3. If you could a get a unicorn what would you name it and what would it look like?

It’s name would be Candy. It would have a mane and tail spun out of cotton candy, and it’s eyes and nose would be candy hearts. It would also have a horn made solely out of crystallized sugar, covered with coconut shreds. XD

4. What is your favorite book series?

Oh, totally the Chronicles Of Narnia by C.S. Lewis!

5. ย Whatโ€™s your hair color?

It’s brownish-black. ๐Ÿ™‚

6. What is your favorite show/movie?

I haven’t watched that many, actually. I prefer YouTube videos and documentaries.

7. If you could be rich for a day what would you buy?

As in, spend as much money as you want in one day and not go bankrupt? Oh. I would buy a trampoline, a sewing machine, acryllic paints, an X-acto knife, polymer clay, craft plywood, popsicle molds, popsicle sticks,ย Z Yang’s scooter set,ย Maryellen’s Fridge And Food Set, and a new camera so my sister and I don’t have to share. ๐Ÿ˜€ And then I’d get my family some nice gifts and donate some. YES I’M DONE.

8. Whatโ€™s your favorite food?

*gasps* How could you do this to me?

Either croissants…or ice cream…or chocolate.

9. Whoโ€™s your favorite Disney princess?

I don’t really watch Disney…

10.Whatโ€™s your favorite social media thing, pinterest, tumblr, facebook etc.

PINTEREST!!!!!! *squeals*

11. What is your biggest dream?

To be a legacy remembered long after my death!

***

Thanks to Dolls By The Dozen, we’ve been nominated a second time for the Sunshine Blogger Award!

1. Whatโ€™s your favorite post youโ€™ve ever done on your blog?

IMG_6639
favorite picture I’ve ever taken…hands down.

 

Can I have a list? XD

2. Whatโ€™s your favorite photography tip?

Okey…I think the most important one would be to get lots of good natural lighting. Nobody likes a dark, shadowy image, after all! Of course, though, I’m definitely no expert. *sobs*

3. What season is your favorite? (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall)

Must you??? I’ll have to go with fall, since winter is too cold, summer is too hot, and spring is too rainy and muddy…autumn is really beautiful!

4. Do you play an instrument? Which one?

I play the piano! ๐Ÿ˜€

5. Do you like to cook or bake? Whatโ€™s your favorite thing to make?

I’m awful at cooking, but I LOVE baking! My favorite thing to make is…probably muffins. They’re so quick and easy, and I love the end result!

6. Whatโ€™s your dream doll? (Custom, retired, available, leaked are options)

Hmm, I’m not that into dolls…but most likely Z Yang (seriously. her camera set and outfits are all so a.d.o.r.a.b.l.e.). Rebecca Rubin comes in a close second. I can imagine she would be extremely photogenic!

OH WAIT NO TRULY ME #23 IS THE CUTEST THING IN THE WORLD.

7. Where would you like to go if you could go anywhere?

ISRAELLLLL.

Yassss.

Israellllll.

8. What do you want to do when you grow up?

I know this sounds far-fetched, and not many people know this…but I kinda want to go into filmmaking or digital design…I’m pretty obsessed already ๐Ÿ˜›

9. Do you prefer things you craft or things you save up to buy?

IMG_5877

I’m a huge crafter and most of my stuffie things are DIY…but I do imagine store-bought products would be much neater, responsive, and professional. *laughs at self* *guffaws at my awful crafting skills*

10. Whatโ€™s your favorite bible verse?

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,ย nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ~Romans 8:38-39

11. Whatโ€™s your favorite school subject?

Hmm…probably history! Writing comes in a close second, understandably. ๐Ÿ™‚

***

And yes, the last one. XD But certainly not the least! Thanks to Life Put Simple for nominating us for the Sunshine Blogger Award!

The Questions:

Whatโ€™s your current obsession(s)?

VideoPad Capture.PNG

I have so many!! XD

  1. Handlettering
  2. Graphic design
  3. Making videos — I need to stop using Movie Maker and get more advanced tho *fails to find the laughing until crying emoji*
  4. Photography
  5. Baking

Whatโ€™s something you really regret from your past?

Sigh. These questions. They make me think pretty hard.

Um, wasting more time than I should have? Oh wait I waste even more time now

Or not even being observant about other people? I still don’t

If you were any food, what food would you be? (idk anymore. that was extrememly random๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚)

No, that wasn’t random! XD Um…waffles? Don’t ask.

If you could choose your age forever, what age would you choose and why?

I WOULD CHOOSE THE AGE I AM RIGHT NOW. CUZ I WANNA STAY A KID FOREVER AND I DON’T WANNA GROW UP AHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Would you rather travel a century into the future or a century into the past? Why?

Oh, the past. Totally the past. Wait, what was going on in 1917? Oh yeah, WWI.

Oh well, I have a feeling WWI was milder than the future WWIII…which would probably be happening a century from now…

Whatโ€™s your favorite flavor of icecream?

Oreo! Yum! Sooo goood!!!

Whatโ€™s one of your biggest pet peeves?

When people think THEIR way to do things is the ONLY way to do things. Like, they’re not God??

Also, an HTML table with no margins or padding.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

If you changed your name, what would you change it to? Or would you keep you original name?

Hmm…I don’t think I’d want to go through the confusion of changing my name. If I did change it, however…I have a couple names that I like (Clara, Katie, Grace, Sophia, etc.) but none of them go well with my last nameย ๐Ÿ˜‚

Unlimited money or unlimited fame/friends?

…Unlimited money.

I don’t even want to be famous, and I’m not a social person so I don’t want that many friends. But if I had unlimited money I could literally do whatever I want (??)

Cats or dogs?

DOGGIES!!! *squeals*

Whatโ€™s your ideal weather?

70 degrees, big fat fluffy white clouds in a blue sky, a light and cool breeze. Perfect.

The Liebster Award x3

Liebster Award Button.png

I was nominated THREE TIMES (seriously??? thanks so much!!!) for the Liebster Award by the lovely Julia and Mishelle and PenelopeCrumb!

Julia is a SUPER sweet blogger, and her blog is so flowery and aesthetic, with some awesome content! Mishelleย has AMAZING crafts on her blog, and I love the fun and catchy name ๐Ÿ˜€ . And finally, PenelopeCrumb is like, legit the best blogging friend ever. EVER.

Two sets of rules added asking questions and one version didn’t. (??) Oh well. I shall post the first version of rules, since it’s more precise, but I’ll still ask and answer questions. Awards are confusing.

Rules

  1. Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog. Try to include a little promotion for the person who nominated you. They will thank you for it and those who you nominate will also help you out as well.
  2. Display the award on your blog โ€” by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a โ€œwidgetโ€ or a โ€œgadgetโ€. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
  3. Provide 10 random facts about yourself. (Optional but highly recommended!)
  4. Nominate 5 โ€“ 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have less than 200ย followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)
  5. List these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here or simply put a link to this post on your blog.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:
  6. Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post or mine if you donโ€™t have all the information so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it)!

The Questions:

What inspired you to start blogging?

Doll blogs like Delightful World Of Dolls and Dolls N’ All! They made me want to recreate the fun photo stories, photo shoots, and crafts they did with my own stuffed toys. ๐Ÿ™‚

What is one thing you do every day that makes you happy?

Um…I don’t know?

It’s funny because these questions look like they could be easily answered but they are totally not. XD

I guess I’m excited to check my WordPress reader in the mornings. But that doesn’t really make me happy…

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I think I’ve answered this already in another set of questions…Israel. The food, the culture, the Biblical locations — everything about it is amazing!

What is your favorite hobby?

Oh, hard! I have SO many!

Perhaps blogging? It keeps me pretty occupied when I’m bored.ย But other than that, probably writing! I will always have a story surfing around in my head.

IMG_3808

OH WAIT. DOES EATING COUNT? DOES IT? DOES IT?

What are your blogging goals for this coming year?

Hmm…I want to start and actually FINISH a photostory series that is actually QUALITY with actual CLIFFHANGERS. That was too many actually-s. Another goal is to hit 150 followers (impossible but we can do it right??)

I would also like to force myself to IMPROVE MY PHOTOGRAPHY (honestlyyyy), and the quality of my photo stories. ๐Ÿ™‚

How do you keep yourself inspired?

I read things (obviously). I read writings, poetry, blogs, and epic quotes (preferably from the Bible). I look at pretty graphics. I go outside and relax. I make crafts with my hands.

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Um…something yummy with optimal nutrition and EVERYTHING in it. Like…a porridge with tons of veggies smushed in? I know, unappetizing, but I’m responsible like that.

What were you doing this time last year?

Ha! How am I ever supposed to remember?

Cats or dogs?

Doggies!!! *screams and runs around with tons of dogs following her*

If you were to give any advice to other new bloggers, what would it be?

Oh, I don’t know! *sighs* I’m quite a new blogger myself. XD I think it would be quality over quantity. If you can post once a day (or whatever is your definition of often), all power to you, but be sure those posts are the absolute best you can do.

I moderate the comments on this blog, so it was just that I hadn’t approved and replied yours yet. ๐Ÿ˜€ And I’m SO sorry, but I’m not allowed to share my age online..I’m totally too young to be in college, though.

  3. Beezus da bear, in da house!!!! (Well I’m actually at Sarah’s softball game so I’m in an actual house, but anyway) I found that my human is actually a lot like you! She uses movie maker to make some of my videos that r on YouTube. Sam LOVES Oreos. But what she loves even more than plain Oreos is crumbling Oreos into tiny peices and putting them into ice cream. Me? Well I prefer crumbling cookies or brownies and putting them into ice cream. And also she has to share pretty much EVERYTHING with her sister Sarah, kinda like you!
    By the way congrats on all your awards!!!!!
    Keep up your beartastic work!!!
