Writing (Typewriter)

Introducing the yalit100!

yalit100 yalit100 yalit100 yalit100 yalit100

Love YA lit? Love writing fic?  Love writing fic for YA lit and wondering why there doesn’t seem to be very much for most books?

Join the YAlit100 challenge!

  • You MAY claim more than one table at a time.
  • You MAY do crossovers, fusions, and AU fic! If you intend to write crossovers and/or fusions, claim the table for the MAIN WORK (so, for example, if you want to write 100 godly-parent-fusion fics, your claim would be “Percy Jackson,” unless all 100 fics would star characters from Anna and the French Kiss or something. SOME ASPECT of all 100 fics must be constant for the book/table you choose!)
  • Fics can be ANY LENGTH. You may write 3-sentence fics, drabbles, one-shots, six-word-ficfests, whatever. The whole point is just to encourage more YA lit fic! :)

So far, there are just the first few tables up, but I will be adding my usual amount of ALL THE YA BOOKS.  :P  Join and/or Watch the
comm on LJ for updates, and make sure to suggest any book(s) that you may think I’ll miss or that you want to see sooner!


The Bean Stalk!

There's a LOT, too! Let's do this.

First up, hot off the press, there's a Pictionary update: click HERE! I've gotten the stuff to add to the entries for #6, #13, #27 and #50.

As always, feel free to send me more pictures for the Pictionary. You know I'll always credit you. I need, well, anything and everything, but if you've got Marie Grace and Cecile pictures, that's even better!

Then, I've updated the sewing table with two finished projects: one and two. I don't want to take up too much space on the page, but I'll at the least put up a picture of my favorite:

Oh, and! I was sick today, and also quite a bit bored, so I sat and made Monster High icons. Here's 16 fresh icons from Season 2, Episode 27. It's the latest one, the one with Spectra. Go check them out! I'll post a few teasers:

Hey! Don't forget that you can grab super fast updates by following @beanstalktweets! I always try to follow you back.

I'd love it if you followed The Bean Stalk Blog!

AG Items for Sale!

Hello again! It's been awhile since I've posted here. But I'm back because I'm trying to pass on my old American Girl things to new, loving owners. I just don't have the space and need to cut it down a lot.

This isn't everything I want to sell, so there will be more in time. But I wanted to offer things here first, before resorting to Ebay. Most of the things I have to sell are about 10 years old and retired. So please check these items out. Thank you so much! :)

Nine-year-old expert on American Girl dolls to would-be collector: Oh, no, not Sarah, you won't get her, she's retired. (about another doll) Good luck finding her, Lindsay retired too!
Would-be collector: Wow, I can't believe all these dolls are retiring!

Dolls Up for Auction!

Hi everyone!  I hope this is okay to post here.  I'm selling off my American Girl doll collection and, since they were a huge part of my childhood, I'm hoping they will go to good homes!

I have 5 American Girl dolls posted:  Samantha, Felicity, Josefina, Addy, and Kirsten.  They are from 1993/1994, are visibly Pre-Mattel, and are in excellent used condition!

The auctions can be found on this page (all have a $49.99 start price):

I have great feedback on eBay and have had some bad experience buying and selling on LJ, so I prefer to sell through eBay.

I also have some Marian Yu dolls, a Dianna Effner Goldilocks doll, and a Brinn's 1989 doll up for auction as well.

Thanks for looking!

Bean Stalk Boutique

I'm pleased and proud to invite you to the grand opening of:


My Etsy Shop!

I have time in the summer, so I'm trying this out. My plan is to produce doll clothes that your dolls want to wear. I'm going to be adding new stock every week, and I would love it if you stopped by and bookmarked or favorited my shop. If I don't have what you want, check back, because I could soon!

(I have yarn wigs for Pullips and Blythes if that also interests you.)

Also! If you follow @beanstalktweets on Twitter, I'll be giving out special promotion codes through there.

For sale items...

My for sale album has been updated. I've added more official AG items and more random 80s toys and various collectibles. AG wise I've still got mostly Kirsten and Samantha items plus handmade items. I'm heading down to my mom's in Florida for a couple weeks on Monday, so if you want things shipped before then, I need everything ready prior. Reply or message me if you're interested.

X-posting wherever I can think of (because I've got bills to pay before vacation).

Selling American Girl Outfits etc.

Hello all!
It had been forever since I have used LiveJournal and I am not sure if this post is appropriate for this community, but I have a question for everyone.

I collected American Girl merchandise years and years ago. I find myself in a situation where I, unfortunately, need to clear out some of my things. So, my question to everyone here is: Is there anyone out there who is even interested in items that are older (10 to 15 years ago)? I am more than willing to take pictures and post them if anyone is interested.

Thank you all for your time and responses. Please also feel free to ask any questions!
