She made this in her senior-year metal works class at Prospect Mountain High School. Very impressive. A lot of detail. She is very happy. We are treating it like a work of art. She likes metal work. This is meant to be a precursor to her going to college to pursue an engineering degree.

Another Custom ‘American Girl Doll’ Bed By Teischan (11).

From discarded shelf unit she found at our local Swap Shop yesterday. She did the painting, decorations and made the mattress! She is now going to make some blankets. I suggested she also make some linen to put in the drawer units. Did all of this, including the sewing of the mattress, on her own. She has two (2) electric sewing machines of her own and also uses her mother’s fancy Japanese one. She is only one who does much sewing around the house these days.


A previous bed she made in July last year.


The ‘American Girl Doll‘ corner of her room
— mainly with things she has made.



Teischan likes doing crafts and is good at it. Next to her electronics, crafting is her next greatest pastime.

She particularly enjoys making elaborate stuff for her two ‘American Girl Dolls‘. Check out: bathroom/shower, furniture, fireplace, Christmas, Harry Potter books etc.. She has been doing this for two years.

Today, it was this bed. She only picked it up yesterday. It is quite heavy and I have helped her a few times carrying it around. The dolls have quite few beds now, including a bunk bed.

I am very happy that she does this stuff. She could make a career out of it.

‘Harry Potter’ Books For ‘American Girl Doll’ By Teischan (10).

by Anura Guruge

As posted here Teischan, who loves doing crafts, particularly enjoys making customized stuff for her two ‘American Girl Dolls‘. Check out: bathroom/shower, furniture, fireplace, Christmas). She has been doing this for two years.

She likes to make sure that her ‘Girl Dolls’ do the same things as she does. So one of the presents she wants for Christmas is an ‘American Girl Doll’ FLUTE — and, per scale, this tiny flute costs as much as real one!

Teischan has also caught the ‘Harry Potter‘ bug. She is on her fourth book.

Today she decided she was going to make ‘Harry Potter’ books for the dolls! You can see the covers. I suggested she make the insides from styrofoam. She is not sure. She wants to try and do it out of paper. Knowing her I would not be surprised if she cuts 400 tiny pages and then tries to bind them!

I will keep you posted.

I am SURE she has violated J.K. Rowling’s copyright, BUT as fellow British authors (though of VASTLY different statures) I am SURE she will not mind and maybe even be amused. Now, I am sure ‘American Girl Doll’ will cotton on and start selling books at $30 a copy. {SMILE}

Teischan’s (10) ‘Plains Indians’ Diorama For School.

by Anura Guruge


All her own work. Didn’t want any help with anything ONCE she found a piece of wood, for the base, that satisfied her. Took it to school this morning.

As I have said/shown before, Teischan is good at doing crafts. It is her second love in life, watching videos/TV her first. Actually what she really likes to do is work on crafts while watching videos on YouTube (on her pad). Some of her other craft projects: bathroom,  furniture, fireplace, Christmas

Handcrafted Bathroom, With Shower, For ‘American Girl Doll’ By Teischan (10).

by Anura Guruge


Doing crafts is Teischan’s second love in life, watching videos/TV her first. Actually what she really likes to do is work on crafts while watching videos on YouTube (on her pad).

She likes doing large pieces. Since last fall, as I have chronicled here in pictures (i.e., furniture, fireplace, Christmas), she has been building elaborate ‘sets’ for her two American Girl Dolls.

Yesterday, i.e., Sunday, she built this bathroom — all by herself. Check out the shower — with showerhead and controls.

I am encouraging her to go into business. Make ‘sets’ on order for other kids.

As mentioned in prior posts Teischan, emulating her mother, likes to do crafts and is getting progressively good at it.

Of late she likes to make elaborate accessories and scenarios for her American Girl Doll — Isabelle.

This weekend she started doing this Christmas setup with a tree that lights up! [I need to get a picture when the lights are on.]

The fireplace that she built is in the middle picture albeit obscured quite a bit by the stockings.

At her express request she is getting another American Girl Doll and outfits for Christmas.
