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,

sewing win

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I had a super awesome blog post written and tried to upload it, but unfortunately it won't upload correctly. So I will try again some other time instead.

Today I made a super awesome dress! If I may say so myself. If you want to see pictures of it, go to my Flickr photostream, HERE.

As a preview, here is something my genius brain thought of! It's a fake magazine cover. I'm thinking about doing one every month, and you guys can print them out, if you want. :)

Enjoy the Flickr pics!

Love, Lena

personal photo challenge

Now that I have a good forum for uploading pictures, I've decided to do a one-a-week photo challenge. I'm going to take at least one good doll photo per week and upload it to Flickr. I don't know how long this will last, but my goal is 8 weeks.

I'll probably put other pictures up as well,but the challenge photos will be labeled by week.

You can see my Flickr photostream here.

new flickr

I decided to make a Flickr photostream, since so many people have them, and it looks like it will be a fun adventure!

You can find my photostream here.

I'll also make a tab for it at the top.

Enjoy the photos!

jessa gives up on humanity

Jessa decided to go back out the the beach and read for a while. It seems like that is her favorite thing to do nowadays.

She grabbed her book and towel and headed out.

When she got outside, Jessa saw Sara, supposedly laying out in the sun. That couldn't be good.

As Jessa came nearer Sara asked, "Emily, is that you coming?"

"Um, no, it's me, Jessa." She replied. "And why are you waiting for Emily?" "Oh, she's -- here she comes!"

Emily came from the house, wearing an apron and carrying a glass of pink lemonade.

"Here you go, Miss Alcott," Emily said, handing Sara the lemonade. "Thanks, Emily."

"Is there anything I can get you, Miss McConnell?" Emily asked Jessa.

"No, of course not, Emily. And you shouldn't let Sara boss you around like that."

"Okay." Emily left without another word. She seemed glad to be rid of her servant-ly duties.
After Emily left, Jessa admonished Sara. "You know, you really shouldn't boss Emily around like that. She's your sister, not your servant!"
"Uh, Jesus said to have a servant's heart. So Emily has a servant's heart for me!"
Jessa left exclaiming, "Ugh! I give up on humanity!"

"Yeah, I don't see what her problem is either."

{Sorry the pictures are so bad, I'm still trying to figure out this sun.}

agc conflict

So as you all know, I am participating in season 9 of the AGC. The theme for round 3 is "adventure". I've taken two photos, but I'm conflicted as to which one to use.

Photo op #1:

Definitely my favorite regarding quality. However, it doesn't convey creativity with the theme, which is what they are looking for.

Photo op #2:

This photo definitely conveys the creativity they are looking for (Um, I built a pyramid out of bricks!), but also lacks the quality that is also looked for in the entry photo.

Which one do you think I should submit? Please vote in the poll to the right by January 31st. I will let you know which one I submit!

Thank you for your help!

new shop + email

Hey guys! I have super-duper-extra-pooper exciting news!

I recently made a website to sell doll clothes on! I've called it "Lacopolis". There won't be any clothes or accessories on it for a while; I still have to set up a bank account, and in turn, a PayPal account. I expect it will be about a month yet. I will be sewing away for it, though, don't worry!

If you are interested in at least checking out my site or maybe bookmarking the link, here's the URL: www.lacopolis.webs.com

I also made an email address that you can contact me at (but please, no spam!): lena.lacopolis@yahoo.com

Thanks all!

lovely new header

Hello, all!

I'm sure you've noticed by now (it's been over a month) that I got my lovely new header!

My friend Fetnat from Europe drew it and sent it to me, and I love it.

She recently made a blog, so if you could please visit it and follow and comment on it, I'm sure we would both appreciate it.

Here is the link to Nat's Daydream:


Thank you!

lake beach

Jessa is really enjoying Florida's winter weather. She decided to go down to the lake today and soak in the late afternoon sunshine.

{{No dolls were harmed in the making of this photo shoot.}}
