American Girl Valentine's Day Releases! Molly's Archival News?

When I think about an American Girl Valentine's Day, I think back to Samantha's Pastimes Craft Book and the handmade valentines, hand-sewn potpourri pillows, and pasted wooden keepsake box. My family wasn't big on Valentine's Day, but I always wanted to try those crafts out. This year,
I not only want to make homemade valentine cards, but I want to make valentines day cupcakes. If you've read this and my other blogs, you should know by now that I have an obsession with food. That being said, I am going to throw in a picture of the best looking, drool worthy, chocolate covered strawberries I've ever seen. People, it doesn't take $60 to dip strawberries in some chocolate. Walmart, here I come!
On to the dolly business. Yay for new releases! And nay for Molly's archival! Good news first, no, we'll go with the bad. The rumors surrounding Molly and Emily's archival are old news. While no one knows 100% that it will be them next, from my own deductions I am betting that they will be. Out of the original four dolls (Samantha, Kirsten, Felicity, and Molly), Molly is the only one left. Although it did surprise me when they archived Felicity before they archived Molly. Anyway, Molly gets a new set of pajamas and a new bedset in the new release and get this: both are marked as being available for "limited time". Could they scream "next one to be archived" any louder?

Now for the good news. There are so many new releases! I'm really liking the direction American Girl is taking, especially with the MyAG line. Yes, I'm one of those collectors who wishes that the quality of their products was better, like in the Pleasant Company days, but when it comes to being on trend, AG is spot on. Here are a few of my faves:
Sweet Spring Dress for Dolls

Plaid Party Dress for Dolls
Now this is a first; I've never been so excited for spring so i can start wearing spring dresses. Getting excited over wearing dresses is so unlike me, but I'm really feeling it right now. The lace Sweet Spring dress is definitely my favorite out of the bunch. I go off now to do some virtual online window shopping for lace dresses as I simultaneously look at pictures of cupcakes. I need help.
