Valentine's Day Cherry Soda

Hey, dollies!

Chrissa Marie here. How excited are you all for Valentine's Day? I have to say, I'm crazy happy that it's just around the corner!

And what better way is there to celebrate this sweet day than to make a bright red soda?




I have to admit. I love maraschino cherries. Like, I would rather eat the cherries than the ice cream. So as you can imagine, I have no regrets buying a huge tub of them and eating them plain! But what's even better is when you put them in a soda!

Here's my version of a cherry soda.

Ingredients:

1 can of Sprite or similar soda
4 maraschino cherries - you are WELCOME to use more if you're like me :)
5 spoonfuls of the juice the maraschino cherries came in. If you want a stronger flavor, add additional spoonfuls.

All you have to do is put the soda and cherry juice in a cup, mix it together, add your cherries, and you're done! Now go share it with your BFF. I'm sure she'll appreciate it. :)

And on a side note: If you don't like Sprite, try a different soda! We used cream soda a different time, and we LOVED how it turned out!

Lots of love, dollies! Happy Valentine's Day! 

XOXO,

Chrissa Marie

Fringe Valentine DIY (video!)

As you all know, we are HUGE fans of making homemade Valentines! Don't get me wrong, store bought are great (we've used them quite often!) but there is something extra special in creating a handmade Valentine! That being said, sometimes we don't have time to create elaborate, intricate valentines, but we don't whant them to be boring! We think these simple fringe valentines find the perfect balance, easy but still manageable!



Fringe Valentine DIY from Doll Delight on Vimeo.

STEP ONE: Gather tissue paper (any valentines color!), paper (Again, preferably a valentines color) and a glue stick.

STEP TWO: Cut the paper into a heart (we wanted ours larger - but pick whichever size suits you!)

STEP THREE: Take the piece of tissue paper, and cut it into a long strip that's 2 1/4 inches long.

STEP FOUR: Fold that strip about one third of the way, make sure you crease it well.

STEP FIVE: Fold again so the edges meet.

STEP SIX: Begin snipping to make a fringe. Make sure you don't cut all the way to the top!

STEP SEVEN: Cover the heart in glue, then lay the piece of tissue paper out over it. Then, trim it.

STEP EIGHT: begin laying the fringe on, begin at the bottom and put the FOLDED end up top. Glue one on top of the other, layering upwards. Trim off the sides of the fringe to keep the shape of the heart.

STEP NINE: Decorate the heart in whatever way you want, we chose this little "Love you" heart with polka dots, simple and to the point!




 
I don't know about you, but this card kind of reminds me of a pinata! And that, in my opinion, is a very good thing! Hope you enjoyed this video tutorial!

Will YOU be making your Valentines this year?

XOXO, Mackenzie and the rest of the Valentines day loving Spicys!

A DOLL'S DAY IN PARIS

Well Friends, as you might imagine, we had an incredible time in Paris! I am so grateful that Kay brought me along. I certainly wish my sisters could have been there with me to experience the beauty (um, and the food of course!) but hopefully we can ALL go together one day and have a wonderful time exploring Paris together!

Don't let the photos fool you - it was FREEZING while we were snapping these pictures! But even in the cold and the rain and the fog, the Eiffel Tower is such a beautiful sight. It was so surreal sitting there taking in all the beauty, It was something I had only dreamed about! And it's no surprise to know that it was just as magical as every photo on Pinterest predicted.


Of course it wouldn't be a post about France without talking about THE FOOD! Seriously you guys, I've never seen (or tasted!) so many yummy treats in my life. My favorites would have to be the macaroons (so Delicious and equally adorable!) and the warm, toasty bread that is EVERYWHERE! I love me some good American food, but the French are doing something right because it's WAY better!


I am so grateful for the incredible experience! I had so much fun and this trip is one I will remember with fondness for the rest of my life. If you all have any questions, leave a comment and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks for reading about my adventure, I hope you enjoyed seeing Paris!

Much Love, Chrissa Grace.

Kay's thoughts on Isabelles outfits!

As promised, here are our thoughts on Isabelle outfits! Holly's will be up later this week - so be on the lookout. As always, feel free to chime in your thoughts!



First of all, I really love the colors of all her outfits! The muted purples and pinks mixed with the gold is really beautiful! It seems really sophisticated and more grown up than the usual hot pink and bright colors that AG normally uses.

That being said, I actually am not completely in love with her outfits. This is just a personal thing, but I really don't like the look of leggings under skirts! And sadly, almost all of her outfits include that look. That being said, I LOVE the skirts, and I'm sure without the leggings they are totally fine. And also, they fact that they all mix and match is a really cool twist, it's nice to see something different!

What are your thoughts - do you agree or disagree?

DIY Heart Headband!

Valentines day is sneaking up on us (geez, where are the days going?) and while it's shocking, we can't wait! In order to get in the holiday spirit, we though a little heart headband would set the tone! So far, we love sporting a little love wherever we go, and you might like it too!

For this craft, we just "shopped our craft closet" so to speak! We used red felt (but any scrap of pink or red fabric would work) ribbon, (about 12 inches) and some gems (optional!)

STEP ONE: Cut out 3 hearts. Either draw on the fabric or freehand! Having different sizes and shaped hearts makes for a fun and unique look.

STEP TWO: Hot glue the three hearts onto the ribbon, and make them overlap just a bit.

STEP THREE: Glue the gems onto the hearts and you are good to go!

Hope you all enjoyed this simple, easy craft! If you are feeling like your day needs a little love, make a quick headband or two and you'll feel the love in no time!

XOXO,
The Spicys

Back from Paris

Hi Friends! As you may have noticed, we are back from Paris! We had an incredible time seeing the BEAUTIFUL sights in Paris! But actually our favorite part was wandering down the cute streets (and of courese, sampling every macaroon we saw!)

The good news, Doll Delight is back in action! Ever since we got home we've been prepping for Valentines day and are getting excited about the good things that are coming. Also, we will be sharing more Paris photos soon!

How have YOU been friend? We've missed you!!

XOXO, Kay and Holly and Chrissa Grace
