About Me, the Girl Inside the Pointe Shoes

 
Hey there! I'm Katie, a teen ballerina who loves American Girl, and just about any 18" doll! I started my blog to share the crazy adventures my dolls have and make friends with people who love dolls as much a I do. And I truly believe that you should never give up your love for dolls to fit in the crowd.
 
Here are some random facts about me so you can get to know me better,
 
I'm the youngest of four kids

 
I love Lego as well, my favorite Lego movie is The Lego Movie 2 and my favorite Minifigs I own are Nya and Lloyd (The Lego Ninjago Movie high school version). I actually run a Lego Instagram as well where I share my Lego photography! You can check it out HERE
 
 
I've been dancing since I was 6, I love it so much and I'm currently dancing en pointe. I hope to someday follow this passion and become a professional dancer, but if life ends up going in another direction, I'd love to become a writer :)
 
I enjoy writing fiction stories, most of my characters are actually inspired by my dolls!
 
Comic book characters are awesome! I like both DC and Marvel, but DC is my favorite, Batman is my favorite from DC (The original Batman, who wasn't super dark and creepy), and Spider-Man from Marvel is pretty amazing too!
 
Oh my goodness Illumination movies! SING!!! DESPICABLE ME 3!!!
 
I run a knitting/crocheting and doll restoration business. I find dolls at thrift stores, and fix them up to sell, and I crochet Spider-Man, Groot, Chewbacca, and ect :)
 
Do we have anything in common? Any questions? Let me know in the comments below! I love talking to you guys <3 thanks so much for checking out my blog, I hope to see you around. Have an awesome day!
 
- Katie :)

  1. Awesome "About" page, Katie! I hope you can become an excellent professional dancer, but of course writing is not bad at all either. ;) You've crocheted a Chewbacca?! That's awesome! Also your the youngest of 4 kids and I'm the oldest of 4! How cool!

    1. Thank you so much Jewel! Aww thanks, that's so sweet of you to say :) ballet is a hard industry to get into, so I'm just trusting God that if it's where He wants to place me then it will happen. But if not, there's a back-up plan that I love doing too :) YES! Chewbacca is one of my favorites to crochet, I want to try crocheting Captain America this year as well. LOL I know right? And you have two brothers and one sister right? I have two sisters and one brother XD

  2. Cool "about me" page! You really run your own business? That is awesome!!
    I love writing fiction stories! Most of the time I wish I had more dolls so that I could create the characters that I have in my stories! I've just started a book that I wish I had a doll for. I'm not going to give you any spoilers though, cause I might write about this book on my blog.
    Do you ever find AG dolls at thrift stores? Where do you sell your dolls (like, do you have a website, a store, or just on eBay?) I really want to start collecting dolls, other than AG dolls, and I all ready have started collecting paper dolls. What I really want is antique dollhouse dolls. Perhaps you could tell me if you sell any of those?
    Great job on the page!

    1. Thank you! I hope it was fun and interesting to read :) Yes! It's pretty small right now, but it's super fun.
      Nice! Me too. Yeah, it's funny because my characters always seem to be my dolls with different names. I actually considered renaming Carter after a character that was based off of him XD oh cool! I can't wait to read more about it, and I hope you find a doll you can create into your character! No, sadly. I've only found Parker, who I ended up keeping because I had always wanted to make a custom, and it would have become too expensive after buying the wig and everything to sell her. Right now I mainly sell through craft shows in my area, but if you're interested in buying from my business i believe there is a way we could work that out. Oh cool! There's such an awesome array of dolls outside of AG that are so cool to collect! And paper dolls are so awesome! I don't currently have any Antique dolls, but I can always be on the lookout if you'd like. Thank you so much for taking an interest in my doll business, and thank you for reading my new page as well!

    2. Please do look for Antique dolls! I don't really have money to buy right now, but if you'd be on the lookout for some that would be great! If you do find something, just let me know! ;)
      If you do find something could you maybe send me pictures via email, and maybe also the size of the doll. I'd really like dollhouse size if possible, but really I'd like any doll. Oh, also, I'd like to know if the clothes are removable or sewn on.
      Sorry, I'm being a bit picky, I guess I'd just like to know what I'm getting. :)
      Thanks,
      Haley

    3. Ok then! I'll definitely be on the lookout for you! I will totally email you pictures, size, and any other information on the doll(s) once I find some :) oh no don't be sorry! Your comment is really helpful in finding the dolls you're looking for :)

  3. I enjoy writing fiction stories, too and I love comic books. I don't do ballet but I used to and I love watching it. I am a part of many sports and musical theater, though.

    1. Awesome! WritIng is so much fun! Oh cool! I love doing ballet, and watching it is so much fun :D That's epic! I've always thought musical theater would be so cool to try, I'm not very good at singing though so I'm not sure if I ever will XD what kind of sports do you play?

  4. Writing is a lot of fun! Musical theater is a lot of fun. I'm not an amazing singer, either but when everyone's doing the chorus harmony is more important, and you don't hear individual voices very well. I'm not currently on any sports teams (because my family moved very recently and it was the middle of the spring sports season so I'll do some in the fall, and I used to do a lot, and there are plenty of sports lovers in my family so we play a lot at home. I've done soccer and basketball and at home I played (and play) badmitton, basketball, baseball and football. I also go running and swimming as often as I can. I've done a lot of bike-riding, riding my scooter and a lot of dance (I did ballet and hip hop before we moved). That's all I can think of but I'd like to try karate.

    1. It is! Oh cool! That sounds like it'd be really fun to try someday :D Nice! My family loves sports, but I'm so uncoordinated when it comes to that sort of thing it's not even funny XD I do like playing basketball at home though! That's awesome! I love watching hip hop, I took summer Jazz/hip hop classes several years back and it was really fun! Oooooo!!! You should totally try karate! My sister used to do it and it always looked like it would be really cool to try :D

  5. Yeah, it looks like a lot of fun. Basketball at home is a lot of fun. Yeah, I used to be super uncoordinated but then I found some sports that I'm actually good at. I'm still really bad at gymnastics. Hip hop is a lot of fun. And fun to watch.

    1. It does! I've played it at home, but I'm not sure if we play it right XD Yes it is! Yeah, for me I just can't catch to save my life XD Aw man, I'm awful at gymnastics! It is! I always enjoy seeing the advanced hip hop dance at recitals :)
