Hi! I'm Payton Rose Winter, and I am the new girl at American Girl Farms! I am so happy to be here, and I am making tons of new friends! I love animals, especially dogs and horses. Once I came to the American Girl Farms, I was so excited to ride horses, but my mom said no way (I disagree, but what can I do? There's no use arguing anyway...). I work with many local animal shelters, and I help dogs and cats everywhere with money I raise from my "Payton's Helpful Hats" a charity I created in the back of my dad's camping supplies store. I make all kinds of hats (caps, floppy hats, sunhats, and even bandanas, the one I'm wearing in the picture, I actually made) with the materials back there, and I put cute decorations and appliques on them. I sell them in my own little section of the store, and plenty of people buy them, and some even donate extra (which is very nice!). So far, the charity has raised $300 (that is a great start considering I've only been doing it 3 months)! Actually, I'm working on starting my own little animal shelter for stray dogs and cats that wander onto the American Girl Farms. So far I have one dog for adoption, and I have my own adopt a cat or dog blog!Besides helping animals, I love to hang out with my friends, collect dolls, and explore. I like to do adventurous things, and zip lining, rock climbing, tree climbing, and swinging through and climbing on trees are some of my outdoor hobbies. I'm a total adventurer and I love to get dirty! Rolling through mud and tramping barefoot through the dirt are things I do very often (though I hate having to take a shower afterwards). I always try to be myself, and I hate it when people try to act cool or whatever. I love candy and cake, and any sweets really!
Alright, well, enough about me, talk to you all later!! :) :)
