Hello and Welcome to the 2017 Paisley Awards!
I’m your host, Paisley Penelope Parker, and I am SO excited to be here today to present some of our fellow AG Bloggers with their prizes as they have caught the eye of the community with their talent.
I want to award every winner with this one of a kind PAISLEY TROPHY!
A purple and glittery award, just like my personality!
Every winner also gets a signed copy of the posters behind me! They also receive a little note from Sam and I, as well as another special surprise.
In case you weren’t familiar, The Paisley Awards is a fair award program for doll bloggers! All doll bloggers have a shot of winning one of the 6 categories!
But before we get started, I wanted to make sure you all know that your blog is worth something, and that even if you didn’t get an award, you are still fabulous, and you should never stop doing what you love! ❤ ❤
The first category is BEST DOLL PHOTOGRAPHY! So give it up for Teddie from Reverie Dolls!
Congratulations Teddie! Here is your very own Paisley Trophy!
“Wow what an honor to be standing here. I’m glad I have my notes with me! When we first heard about the Paisley Awards, we never expected to be nominated, let alone be a recipient! On behalf of everyone at Reverie Dolls, I want to thank all of you for your continuing support and kind words!”
And here are a few of my favorite photo shoots of mine 🙂
Yay! Give another round of applause for our first winner!!
The winner of our next category is certainly well deserved! For best Photo Series, Please welcome Molly From Delightful World Of Dolls
to the stage!
“WE WON AN AWARD? YAY! That’s so cool! I mean, hey guys! It’s Molly from Delightful World of Dolls! I just wanted to say thanks a lot for nominating and voting for us! When I first started DWOD (no, not Madison, she stole my blog from me), I never dreamed people would like it enough to vote for it! You guys are the best. Thanks to Paisley for hosting the awards, too! She’s the coolest. Hehe.
Okay, here are three links to my favorite posts!
Thanks again to the incredible people who voted for us! I’m off to squeal about it foreverrr!
Love, Olly Molly”
Awesome! Congratulations once again!!
Our third category is Best Dressed! Please give a big round of applause for Raven Sky McKay from The Doll Notebook!
Oh, and just look at her stunning ensemble! You look wonderful, Raven!
“Um. Hello everyone. I… uh… I’m… I’m not used to giving speeches… but… here it goes. *deep breath* I’m sorry…….. I’m shaking right now because I’m facing one of my greatest fears: large crowds.
Can… can I have a glass of water? No? Oh… ok…
Ahem. Well… I am Raven Sky Mckay, and our blog won “Best Dressed AG Doll Family” in the Paisley Awards… Wow. Thank You! That’s pretty big. I am EXTREMELY grateful to all of you for voting for us! It… It really means a lot. We try and be creative with how we dress because truthfully, we don’t have the largest wardrobe ever (though still pretty sizable). Me and my family like to dress in everything from pretty, flowy dresses (my favorite) to sweatshirts and sunglasses (mostly worn by Kit, who likes to look “cool”). One of my favorite things is the Cinderella dress we just bought! Tenney (one of my sisters) will be wearing it in our Photo Series that has just started. It is true that we dress in historical and modern clothes because, well I guess… why not? It really brings a great variety to the way we dress. Being a modern doll myself, I still find myself preferring some… old-fashioned things. Umm… well, I hope you’ll check us out at Doll Notebook
! We’d really love
to have you! Thank you so much, again.
I think that is all… I’m starting to feel a little faint… I probably really need that glass of water now… *nervous laugh* “
Our next winner is from All Doll’d Up By Kat
, accepting the award for best Photo Stories!! Congratulations, Emily!
“Thank you so much Paisley! Wow, I can’t even begin to tell you all how much this means to me and my sisters. I mean, Molly got so excited that she started screaming and running around the room until she hit the wall, and Jasmine fainted. But, it really meant a lot of to Katie, every comment, follow, and kind word of encouragement is just so special to us. So thank you to everyone who voted and nominated us, you guys are so awesome and we’re so blessed to have you all as our friends 🙂 “

This next winner is the one, the only winner of BEST OVERALL doll blog. It is the best and most honorable award in the entire show. Drumroll Please…..
Here is Kitrina Rose Kittredge From the Outstanding doll blog, Dolls N’ All!
Greetings and salutations! I, Kitrina – representing Dolls N’ All, would like to express my deepest and sincerest gratitude to all of you who voted for us. You may speculate as much as you’d like but I can entirely and positively state that you have no idea how much this means to us at Dolls N’ All – especially Light4theLord (who, despite trying to achieve ‘professional’ status) squealed and did a rather unprofessional celebratory… something. I don’t think it classifies as ‘dance’ in the least bit. In addition, when Madi was told, she also joined Light4theLord in the unprofessional celebratory thing, since it was her birthday. She said it was one of her favorite gifts this year! You made our day, and we love you all SO much and are extremely grateful for all of the amazing support you have all given us! We really didn’t imagine ourselves even getting on the nomination post this year, but you all seem to like our blog a lot, which means even more to us! And then, when we moved past the nomination stage and made it to the top five – it was incredible! And this is the highest possible honor Dolls N’ All could ever receive, and for that… we are speechless! (and yet, somehow, I’ve been giving a speech. Hmmm…. logically unsound) For the sake of trying to not sound redundant, I will refrain from repeating myself even more so out of extreme excitement.
So, thank you, thank you, thank you!”
Thank You To Every Single One of you! You are absolutely amazing, and we all love you! Have a fabulous day, and thanks for voting and nominating! And Of Course, Congrats to the winners! Our Show is coming to a close, be sure to tune in next year to vote and nominate! ❤
