My Life Has Changed

Wow. It has been over two years since I last posted on this blog. Needless to say, my life has changed in incredible ways in the last two years.

First of all, my name is not Lena. It's actually Elena. I chose a "pseudonym" for internet safety when I was 12 years old, and I guess it stuck. My middle name is actually Grace though.

I am now 17 years old, and look like this:

I have grown up in so many ways since I first joined the American Girl Picasa realm and delved into this blog. In fact, you could say I'm not even the same person anymore.

Life is a journey, and the journey of this blog is definitely over.

American Girl still holds a dear place in my heart, and is definitely a tradition that I will carry on with my own daughters when I grow up. I still make doll clothes for my younger sisters, and enjoy playing dolls with them.

This blog was a huge part of my life, but it isn't anymore. To those who still care, I will leave the blog up as a memento to my childhood. If you are still interested in keeping up with my life, I've started a new blog at:

It is about my life, and what has been going on in the last year or so.

Thank you to all who supported me in my younger years. You changed my life in a way that you will never know.

So from the bottom of my heart, thank you, and God bless you.

blog revamp

Hello friend! I'm glad to see you came back, I was wondering if you might. I was afraid I might have disappointed you yet again.

As you can see, I've revamped my blog. It's now going to be about my adventures in sewing doll clothes. You might sew, and maybe you want to learn from my mistakes. I hope I can do that for you, and perhaps entertain you in the process.

I sew quite frequently, and the last outfit I sewed was the following, for the Doll Wardrobe Fashion Design Contest for summer 2013. It isn't posted on the site yet, but I'll let you know when it is so perhaps you can vote for my outfit. If you like it, that is. There are so many talented seamstresses out there!

 I hope to see you back at my blog soon, friend.

taking a break

I think I need a break.

I hate to say it, I really do. But I feel like I'm letting you all down. My posts are few and far between, and when I do post, they are short and boring. I think of when I first started blogging and everything was new and exciting. Now, I think, I'm in a little bit of a schlump.

Perhaps I am losing interest in my dolls.

Maybe I have a little depression going on from being away from all of my friends in Europe and Indiana.

But maybe I really just need to find my style, and how I need to write and run this blog.


I will be going on vacation in July and my best friend from Europe will be vising for 3 weeks until the middle of August. So until then I will be re-vamping my blog: changing up the design, working on my writing style, and perfecting my photography so that this can become something new and fresh that will bring the life back to myself, and more enjoyment to you, my readers.

Until that time, you can follow me on my Flickr, as I will be documenting my summer there.

Adios, au revoir, goodbye.

Love always,
