THE VOTES ARE IN!
Dollies and Gents, hello and welcome to the 2016 PAISLEY AWARD CEREMONY! *applause*
We asked YOU who YOU thought should WIN one of the 6 categories and the prizes that go along with them!
We wanted to tell you that even if your didn’t win, you are STILL AWESOME.
So don’t worry ’bout anything, be happy with your blog, and feel free to post your blog link in the comments to get the word out on THIS POST!
Just a quick refresh, the Paisley awards is an awards program for AG WordPress bloggers who don’t want to spend a lot of time filling out some form. We make it quick and easy. There are 6 categories, and now all you have to do is sit back and see who wins!
In case you are wondering, I’m wearing some random pair of AG tights, an AG tiara, and on Our Generation dress!
Let’s get started! One more thing, these awards exploded! You guys reacted better than we could ever expected! We got over 20 nomination comments, and even more votes! So thank you.
Category #1-Best Photo Series
For this award, the winner will receive a card from us, and a Paisley award poster pack! This person REALLY deserved it, we enjoyed reading their series ourselves! Please welcome to the stage…
Avelynn from Clara’s Craft Corner, actress in THE SMALLONES!
And she is looking awesome in this gemstone purple dress! Avelynn, do you have anything to say?
My name is Avelyn, but you can call me Ava. I’m one of the dolls that you’ve probably seen over at Clara’s Craft Corner
Today, I’m here to share something exciting with you all. I’m not very good at speeches, but I’m gonna give this my best shot!
When Samantha told us that our photostory The Smallones
had won Best Series in the Paisley Awards, we were so excited! I’m one of the ‘actors’ in that series, along with my sisters. The series tells the story of a girl named Ava (sound familiar?) who quite literally stumbles upon a tiny village of people called Smallones. What happens next is quite the adventure! If you’d like to read more, visit our blog,clarascraftcorner.com
We’d like to give a big thank you to all the people who voted for us! It means a lot that you enjoy our story. Clara has worked very hard to produce it… she spends hours stuffing us into uncomfortable costumes, waving reflectors in our faces, and writing out long and complicated scripts we have to memorize. Sounds like fun, right?
Seriously, though, thank you all so much! We’re very glad you enjoy The Smallones. ❤ We love reading all of your blogs, and we’re so happy you enjoy ours!”

*bows* Thank you, thank you!
No, seriously, though, thank you so much to everyone who voted for us. It means a lot to me that so many of you appreciate my fashion sense (Ha! That’ll show Ruthie and Brooke a thing or two about my”tacky outfits”!)
Here are a few links to our best outfits/lookbooks:

Alright, excellent! I agree Saige!
Category #4-Best photo Stories
Yeah, we all read them, and LOVE them, a worthy winner, please cheer on:
Emily from Happy House Of AG!
“Hello, wonderful dolls of the world! I’m Emily Bennett. When I heard that the dolls of Happy House of AG had won the Best Photo Stories award in the Paisley Awards, I became so excited that I smacked my dear sister Molly in the face with a laptop. We’re all so grateful to everyone who voted for us. I would like to thank myself for being such a a wonderful actress. Without my skills, our photostories would be trash, I must say. My sisters can be kind of difficult to work with, but I suppose I should thank them for being OK actresses. And I guess Loren deserves a bit of credit . . . she did write the stories, after all.
Again, thank you for voting for us! I’ll try not to let the fame go to my head. This is Emily, signing off.”

Yay! We love ya’ Loren and Emily!
Category #5- Best AG Photography
This person is NO DOUBT, one of the best we’ve seen! Here is:
Samantha from Small Dolls In A Big World!
“Thank you so much to everyone you voted for me. I feel really honored and grateful. Second, thank you Agdollawesome for hosting such fun awards. You can count on her to bring creativity to the AG blogosphere.
When I first started my blog, let’s just say my photography was not the best. My photos were noisy and had dark lighting. I used a small point and shoot camera for 6-7 months before my mom bought a Nikon 7.100. It came with 35 and 50mm lens. At first I didn’t really know how to use it with all the features, but over time, I figured out things and read the manual. It began to make a lot more sense. And then I did the only thing you can do when looking to improve – I practiced. Skill doesn’t come quickly, and I have a lot of photoshoots I can say are NOT my best. But I kept trying. If you’re looking to improve your own photography, don’t be afraid to take out your camera and shoot. Don’t be afraid of how bad it will turn out; you will most definitely have bad photos. But you will most definitely have good ones as time goes on. The important thing is that you keep trying. “
Aww, great tips!
AND NOW… The moment you’ve all been waiting for, THE WINNER, of the Best Overall AG WP Blog… Please welcome with honor…
MOLLY FROM DELIGHTFUL WORLD OF DOLLS!
And Molly is in a BEAUTIFUL white gown today! Let’s hear what she has to say:
“First of all, a huge thank you to AG Doll Awesome for hosting these super fun awards! It was a blast to pick nominees and vote on the choices.

You guys are all so indescribably sweet and amazing, and it means so much to us that you think our blog is deserving of this award and to be nominated along with so many incredible blogs. Never in my wildest dreams would I have ever imagined that you guys would like Delightful World of Dolls so much, and on behalf of the dolls of DWOD as well as the owner, Madi, thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts!”
And last but not least, a HUGE congrats to those who won, and an even bigger one to the whole AG Community! You are all amazeballs. (we’re so cheesy) XD
