Merry Belated Christmas!

Merry belated Christmas, everyone! Sorry I didn't post earlier, I've been really tired and enjoying my new gifts.

To start: From AG I got Julie's calico dress for Sara and Cécile's Christmas dress for Kirsten. I also got a handmade outfit from my grandmother. The biggest surprise of all for my AGs was a replica of Kirsten's trunk from my mom and sister. It's beautiful! I hope to get pictures up on Picasa soon.

Other than accessories for my AGs, I got "Cooking Mama" and "Just Dance 3" for the Wii, the last two Harry Potter movies, "Rio" and "Zookeeper". My grandmother and my aunt also sent fabric for me since I can't get fabric easily or cheaply where I live. In my stocking I got colored pencils (because mine break all the time) and a really pretty blue scarf.

My MOST FAVORITE gift of all is a Nook and eBook gift card! I'm so excited to get it activated.

I hope to post pictures of the doll stuff soon!

Merry Christmas to all,

Picasa Photo Stories

Harry Christmas! (If you watch the TV show "So Random", you'll know what I'm talking about. If not just ignore it.)

I just made a HUGE mess in the kitchen. I was putting a container of leftovers in the fridge when the container caught on the shelf and exploded all over the floor and the inside of the fridge. Luckily, my mom was nice enough to help me clean everything up. :)

On a happier (and cleaner) note, I just made a couple of doll scarves! I posted the video for how to make them on my Picasa page. Please look at the video and try the craft. It's really fun and easy.
Speaking of my Picasa, I have a couple of photo stories planned since I'm on break, so make sure you check up on it regularly if you don't already follow me on Picasa.

Enjoy your break, everyone!

Harry Potter Tag

Happy Harry Potter post! I recieved a Harry Potter tag from Claire at Claire's Curiosity, so I'm going to post it here for all of you! Here we go:

1. Who is your favorite character? Hermione
2. Which is your favorite book? Um, is ALL OF THEM an option? No? Okay, fine: I love Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

3. Which is your favorite movie? Hm.... The Goblet of Fire or The Chamber of Secrets. IDK why.

4. What is one of your favorite quotes? "...Now, I'm going to bed before either of you come up with another clever idea to get us killed. Or worse, expelled." (Hermione) I quote this all the time!

5. What is your favorite place? The Great Hall

6. Which is your favorite Hogwarts house? Ravenclaw

7. Which House would you belong in (not just which house you like)? Ravenclaw. :P

8. What position do you want to play in Quidditch? Chaser. I can't keep the goal to save my life and I have bad eyesight.

9. Who is your favorite professor? McGonagall, FTW

10. What is your favorite class? Charms

I tag Jeneca and anyone else who love Harry Potter as much as I do!

Harry Potter-ness,

Good News, Bad News

Hey gals!

So, I have some good news and some bad news. Which one first? ;)

Bad news: I didn't make it into the school play. :( I'm not disappointed or anything, I didn't really think I would make it. Although, I'm quite frustrated. The same people get into all the school plays every year, and no one else does. I'm not saying they aren't talented, they are VERY good at what they do. It's just a shame that no one else gets a chance. Oh well, life isn't fair!

Good news: I'm almost finished with my last outfit for that girl, Emilia! Once I finish with that dress I'll be able to start on the coverlet and pillow. Phew, I'm not agreeing to so many pieces next time!

Until later,

Theater and Sewing

Lo and behold! I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people that read this post! ;)

First of all, I can finally say this: MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! Because December is half-way through and you can say stuff like that, even if it isn't Christmas yet.

Second, my Thanksgiving photo story and another EXTREMELY funny (at least, I think so) photo story have been posted on my Picasa. So be sure to check those out!

Now, for the title. I tried out for my school play "The Ash Girl" this afternoon! I think I did pretty well, but I won't know if I was cast until Thursday at lunch my time. Which means you will know on this blog sometime around breakfast your time. If you want to know more about the plot of the play, you should visit this link .

As for the sewing part of the title, I have been sewing quite a lot this past week! A girl at my church was really impressed with my skills, and designed three outfits for me to sew for her for Christmas. Two down, one to go!

The outfit on the left is a pair of PJs and the one on the right is what it looks like: a skirt outfit. The next outfit is an off the shoulder dress. I'll be sure to post better pictures of everything when the dress is done. So what do you think? Am I an okay seamstress?

As always, feel free to comment and follow.

Merry Christmas!
