Taking Care of Business

I'm so excited...things are started to come together for the two new stores. I just ordered some stamps to use for packaging purposes for both new stores ( and from a GREAT store who have used several times now for all my personalized stamping needs. Check out they have great screen-printed t-shirts, along with their custom stamps!

I'll post some pictures as soon as the stamps come in the mail...I'm so EXCITED!

Picks of the Week - Week of 7/27 to 8/3

Forgive my lateness for this blog, I guess the addition of sunshine in our forecast has muddled my brain a bit! So here are the picks of this week!

This cute Yellow and Red Sundress is perfect for summer days! The yellow print, features varying sizes and styles of circles in orange, reds, and greens and the solid red top and hem completes it perfectly. I wasn't sure if the yellow and red would actually work, because I'm not a fan of that color combination, but now I'm convinced and it has become a favorite of mine! And to top of this outfit, a coordinating necklace is included with complimentary colors to the dress, made by my not-so-silent partner. You can find this outfit at

Since the opening of my store, my mom has become a bit jealous of all of my fun and has decided to join me. This Blue Daisy Jumper is so cute, perfect for all the adventures a doll can go in during the summer. Plus there is a glimmer! All over the blue print, there are pretty silver sequins sewn into the fabric. The yellow rick rack that decorates the faux pockets, hem and bodice matches perfectly with the yellow shirt that can actually be a mix and match piece. And on those REALLY hot summer days, this jumper could be worn by itself! You can find this outfit at

The last pick of this week is SOOO adorable! This outfit has it all: a shrug, a tank top, a skirt, a necklace, and a hair doo-dad. Oh yeah, and it's pink! What more could a doll ask for? To me, the thing that pushes the outfit over the top, is the cute little shrug. The shrug is made out of the same pink floral print the skirt is, HOWEVER it has a pretty hot pink ruffling around the neckline which makes it the piece to be had. What great mix and match this outfit has! Wouldn't the shrug look great with a comfortable pair of jeans, or the skirt with a pretty flowy blouse? We think so. You can check out this outfit at

That's it for this week; be sure to check in next Tuesday (which I promise it will be there this time!) for the new picks of the week!

Hair Doo-dad galore!

Today, we recieved our "custom ordered" hair doo-dads for Mallory's cute little pixie cut. And they are so CUTE! Mallory was so excited, she had to try all of them on, and can't figure out which is her favorite. Thanks goes out to Drea Carbone-Kubacki at for a great experience. She was so great, that she even got cute little boxes perfect sized for little hair baubles and jewelry from What a great handmade world we live in!

New Invoices...helping environment

In attempt to help Mother Earth, Camelot's Treasures has "gone green" the best way we can. We recycle packages that we will ship our product in, our packaging material is eco-friendly, our invoices are printed on recycled paper, and now we have reduced the size of our invoices to half sheet of paper. Our plan is to be around for a VERY long time, so we encourage anyone and everyone to reduce, reuse and recycle when they can!

New Stores opening soon!

August is going to be a busy month for us! I have decided to branch out from just American Girl Doll Clothes and start making and selling other things that I enjoy just as much - holiday treasures. And Mallory has been begging me to open up a store for her, ever since I recieved my custom stamps from for Camelot's Treasures. So here's the lowdown.

Christmas in Camelot ( is planning on opening it's "doors" the middle of August. There will be loads of different holiday items, including stockings, ornaments, cards, placemats, etc...the list could go on forever. And the great thing about this new store will be the fact it will help my mom's recovery from double knee surgery go a bit faster - she has to take a break from the sewing pedal, and start working with her hands more. Mallory, my mom (Mary), and myself will be continously adding new things throughout the next few months, so keep an eye out for our new creations!

Mallory Alisabeth ( will be opening it's "doors" as soon as Mallory, my 7-year old daughter, gets her butt into gear and finishes some of her projects. She is planning on including jewelry for little girls, notecards, gift bags, gift boxes, year-long ornaments, and whatever may please her for that moment. Of course, she will have the help of myself, and if she asks nicely her dad, but all of her creations will be her solely her design. What a great way to help learn about economics and saving money, methinks!

Anyway, so that's the jist of the what is soon to come. All three stores will be using this same blog as means to communicate - mainly because it will be easier for me to keep up with - and any news and updates for any of the stores, you should be able to find here.

Picks of the Week - Week 7/21 to 7/27

This week the favorites were chosen by my daughter, Mallory, who is 7 years old and the proud owner of one of the Camelot's Treasures' models, Angelica.

The cute Heart Cut-Out Tank outfit is a great versatile year-round ensemble any doll could pull off. The white tank top is fully-lined and features a pretty cut-out of a pink heart in the center to "jazz it up" a bit. The wide leg jeans are a great wardrobe essential, ready to pair up with any shirt in your doll's closet! And the pretty beaded necklace completes the look with a silver heart pendant! Check out this fashion at

The next featured outfit was made by my mother, who has now decided that I shouldn't get all the fun of making doll outfits. This cute white and blue polka dot outfit is perfect for any summertime endeavor, but what it reminds me most of is camping. The cute sleeveless shirt has pin tucks, but doesn't button up for a nice cool feel. The coordinating wrap skirt is perfect for modest, but is also a fun way to keep cool on those hot summer days. And the turqouise tank is a perfect staple, mix and match it with any other outfit in your doll's wardrobe! Check out this fashion at

Our combined all-time favorite outfit though, is this last outfit. This cute strawberry dress screams summer treats in the summer heat! The dress features pretty puff sleeves and an a-line hem that allows ample playtime while still looking pretty. And the pretty white, green, and red ribbon adornments just make this dress completely finished! Check out this fashion at

Picks of the Week - Week 7/7 to 7/13

With the onslaught of Thunderstorms and generally gloomy days of the past few weeks, I've been pretty busy finishing up some new outfits that I'm excited about.

Of course the first outfit is the one inspired by the rain. Ruthie looks great in her raincoat, hat, and boots - ready to jump in the puddles at her whim! Cute little girls carrying pink and brown umbrellas avoiding the little raindrops all over the coat and hat, with contrasting bands of pink and brown flowers on the cuffs, brim and boots. It features a print by Alexander Henry in the Kitchen Collection including April Showers and May Flowers. You can purchase this adorable outfit at

Another great outfit featured in my store this week is this cute Cowgirl outfit inspired by my childhood visits to my Grandmother's house. My grandmother has lived by a small ranch, and everytime I would visit her I was able to check out the horses, and watch a rodeo or too! And sometimes, if I was lucky, I was able to attend a small town country dance, where the girls wore denim and lace, and the boys wore cowboy boots and hats! This outfit features a cowboy-themed tiered skirt, a pretty white peasant blouse with flutter sleeves, and a coordinating "red bandana" sash perfect for any country dance Angelica wants to attend! You can purchase this outfit at

I don't know about you, but when I think of summer, I think of SWIMMING! So every doll, like every girl, needs a cute ensemble to wear to the beach or the local community pool. This cute number features a triangle wrap top that ties in the back at the neck and the mid-back and cute surfer-like board shorts. The print is a ivy green tropical scene, with hibiscus flowers and palm trees, reminiscent of an island retreats. And this outfit wouldn't be complete without a floral lei! You can purchase this outfit at
