True & Lovely Doll Club

Launching September 8th!

Or should I say re-launching?  You may remember the club from a few years ago!  Well… it’s back, and here’s what you can expect!!!

 

Mission Statement

“…Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Philippians 4:8

 

Club Aim:

To Cultivate Playtime with a Purpose 

I want to give my girls true and lovely things to think about while they play with their favorite toys.  They love to imagine and pretend. They create worlds and stories.  I want the focus of their playtime to center on what is excellent and praiseworthy!  Based on Philippians 4:8, this is the purpose I want to give their playtime: to think about God and His Word and His creation.

 

How Does the Club Work?

You will receive a weekly email from Designs for Dolls every Tuesday (beginning Sept. 8th).

Each month the emails will follow this format:

  • Week 1 – Club Connections
  • Week 2 – Activity Adventures
  • Week 3 – Bible Buddies
  • Week 4 – Recap & Review

 

Club Connections will be a digital pdf download containing all the monthly content you will need for the club.  It is designed for girls to gather once a month with their local friends and their dolls to share a club meeting.  This option can be in-person or through an online format such as zoom.  While including friends can be fun, club meetings can also be held with parents, siblings, or just a girl and her dolls.  Instructions are in the Club Connections for holding this meeting along with suggested activities, service projects, printables, games, and encouragement from God’s Word. 

Activity Adventures will give additional ideas for at-home play centered around the monthly theme.

Bible Buddies will include encouragement from Scripture along with tips for digging into God’s Word… and a printable “Bible Buddy” for doll and me (I can’t wait for you to see these)!!!

Recap & Review will be a summary of the month plus an opportunity for you to share the blessings of playtime from your home.  You can send your pictures, comments, and encouragement to share with others and I’ll include it in the email!

A bonus for Classical Conversations families – you will notice connections to Foundations and Essentials at times!

The club is FREE!

My two oldest daughters and I are creating this club for my two youngest daughters, and we are offering the True & Lovely Doll Club content for free to any family.  We also design and create Christian and Homeschool doll accessories that can be purchased through our web store.  Club members will receive occasional shop updates and special offers only available to our Club email list.

Join now and look for your first True & Lovely Doll Club email on September 8th!

It’s a Great Time of Year!

It’s a Great Time for Learning

We are finding our groove for this new school year and enjoying the routine of our homeschool community!  We homeschool with Classical Conversations and love the accountability, fellowship, and encouragement it brings!

Many of the items we create for dolls are inspired by this classical learning and Christian community.  Whether it’s practicing times tables with a math set, diagraming a sentence with a writing set, or reviewing historical events on timeline cards in a homeschool set, we hope to give girls playtime with a purpose.

 

It’s a Great Time for Friendships

While playing alone or with siblings is beneficial and fills most of our days, my girls love the chance to invite friends over!

We have created True & Lovely Doll Club for girls to gather with their fiends, bring their dolls (or stuffed animals – I have one that prefers animals), and enjoy activities that edify one another.  The Club is designed from a biblical worldview and encourages girls to live all of life to glorify God, even as they play.

We make it easy for you to gather friends and jump right in!

You can sign up to receive a monthly issue (well, mostly monthly… you’ll see we had to combine August and September).  Each month you will receive an email with a PDF download.  The PDF is the “Club News” and intended for you to give your girl (either print or digital).  There will always be a “Doll & Me” printable project that you can copy as many times as you need for your girl and her friends.

The Club News offers direction for hands-on, practical activities as well as exhortation for daily living.

 

It’s a Great Time for Creating

Download a Doll & Me Project!  Your girl can make a doll-sized Bible verse wheel and a set of doll-and-me bookmarks.

You will also receive the True & Lovely Doll Club Start Up Guide and the current monthly issue so you can see if it’s a good fit for your family!

True and Lovely Doll Club is for girls of any age that want to use their playtime for the glory of God while they enjoy dolls or stuffed animals.  We send out monthly activities, printable pages, and ideas for your girl and her doll.  It’s also a great way to include others and build friendships!  September’s issue will help hearts focus and have fun while getting back into a routine of school.

Many Hats

When you own a business, you wear many hats!

Our summer has been fun and full! We have been creating, inventing, crafting, and traveling! We loved exhibiting at our first-ever homeschool conventions and meeting new families. We are enjoying working as a family and learning so much along the way!

 

Two Announcements

As we look to starting our next school year and decide how to balance our time and energy, we want to let you know about a couple of things:

 

1. Clearing Out Our Etsy Shop

We are clearing out our summer inventory in the Etsy shop. (Including hats!) Everything is discounted and only available while supplies last. Check out the current discounts!

2. New Shop Coming Soon

We will be focusing on a few new products in the fall. They will launch on a new storefront here on our website in October.

 

We are excited about what’s next, but in the meantime, we will continue True and Lovely Doll Club! If you haven’t already checked it out, please do so!

 

Stay Updated

Make sure you are on our email list, so you can stay updated about the store launch and Doll Club activities!

 

While we may “wear many hats” as homeschooling business owners, we want to be selective about those hats. We want to keep the ones that bless others the most as we seek to be a blessing to our neighbors.
