DIY Halloween Wreath and Teal Pumpkin Project!

Hello! 
Today I'm going to show you how to make your own Halloween wreath for your front door, bedroom door, or on the wall in your bedroom!


You will need:
Orange and black tulle (you can find this at a craft store like Michael's or Hobby Lobby)
A wreath form (also found at craft stores)
And if you want, but of course this is optional, you can attach a fake spider or other Halloween                      decoration to it when you are finished (we added a crow)  

Ok, so here is how you make it. 







Halloween is right around the corner, and lots of kids, (including me and my sisters!) have food allergies, and can't have most Halloween candy. So FoodAllergy.org started this really cool project called the Teal Pumpkin Project. The idea is to paint a pumpkin teal to show that you have non-food-treats for allergic trick-or-treaters. Some examples are stickers, temporary tattoos, or jelly bracelets. 

That's all for today! Coming up next, DIY Last Minute Halloween Costumes!
Peace, Love, and Teal Pumpkins,

Happy Birthday Daddy! Plus Photos from Disneyland and DIYs!


Yesterday was my dad's birthday! Happy Birthday Daddy! We went to Disneyland! As you can see he got his picture taken with Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. He was a character created by Walt Disney in the 1920s. He looks a lot like Mickey, huh? 

We went on It's A Small World a few weeks ago, and it was awesome!!  Everything was handmade!!! In It's A Small World, dolls sing and dance about their native lands all around the world. It's really good, and I highly recommend it! Here are some pictures:


Thailand 


India



Can-Can Dancers in France


Under The Sea in Hawaii. Can you spot any mermaids? 

Now for some DIYs! The first one is what I call my

Happy Box 


You will need: 
Any kind of container or small box (I used a cleaned out yogurt container)
Duct tape or ribbon
Stickers
Small things that make you happy, such as drawings or notes from friends, quotes, or even little trinkets like a heart-shaped stone or a charm

Instructions: First wrap the container in duct tape or ribbon. You can use one type of tape or ribbon, or you can do a pattern. You can even have a theme! (As I hope you can tell, I decided to go with a Hello Kitty theme.) Don't forget the lid! Then if you want you can decorate it with stickers, but of course this is optional. After that all you have to do is fill it with your Happy Things! 

Whenever you are feeling low, you can just go through your Happy Box and hopefully you will feel a little better! :) 


Heart Bunting


You will need:
Hemp or string
Scrapbook paper (you can find this at craft stores such as Michael's or Hobby Lobby)
Scissors
A stapler

Instructions: First cut some hearts out of your scrapbook paper. Next cut some string or hemp, and staple the hearts to the hemp or string. Then all you have to do is hang up your Heart Bunting!

Well, that's a wrap! I will be going on a trip soon, but I will be back in time to do a Halloween post. 

Peace, Love, and Craft Supplies!

Camping!


This week we went on a spontaneous camping trip!! I've been begging my parents to go camping for months, and finally, a couple days ago they decided to go camping that very day!


We went camping in Idyllwild. It was so much fun!



Look at the size of that pine cone my mom found!!


I thought this tree stump was so perfectly doll-sized I just had to take a picture!


We had been hearing lots of music during our camping trip, and we didn't know where it was coming from. It was really mysterious! Finally me and my dad decided to go try and find out where it was coming from. It turned out to be a music camp. 



At night we made a fire and me and Ginger had fun throwing sticks and leaves into it. We couldn't roast marshmallows because our grocery store only sells mini marshmallows, but that was OK because we had cookies instead. I tried to get a photo of the fire, but it was too dark. 

Later, when we were lying in our sleeping bags in the tent, we heard coyotes howling. It was REALLY loud!!! But it was also really cool, and they soon stopped. 

I think I forgot to mention in my last post that I turned 12 recently!! Yay! Also, I have big news. We will be publishing my mystery novel, Charlotte's First Mystery, soon!!! I will write a post when we do. 

Coming up soon, some DIYs! 

Peace, Love, and Mountains!



 P.S. Comment down below where your favorite place to camp is!

Summer Reading!

Hello! 
I've added some more books to the Summer Reading list! (Also: new post coming soon!) And about the Land of Stories books, I only put in two of them because I've only read the first two so far, but there are more in the series!



The Land of Stories book 1: The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer 


The second book: The Enchantress Returns






The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney




The Hero's Guide to Being an Outlaw (But if you are going to read this I insist that you read the first two books, The Hero's Guide to Saving your Kingdom and The Hero's Guide to Storming the Castle,  before you read this one.) 




The Big Book of Spy Stuff  (I also really enjoyed his other book, The Big Book of Superheroes, but I didn't include that because I actually read that sometime around May, which doesn't count as Summer yet in my book) 








Ever After High Book 1, The Storybook of Legends


Ever After High Book 2, The Unfairest of Them All 


I am also reading all of the Diary of A Wimpy Kid books. They are very good.

I hope you enjoyed! If you are planning on reading one or more of these, or have some Summer Reading suggestions, please comment and let me know.  I will be writing more posts soon! 

Peace, Love, and Books!


P.S. I will be making a new name tag soon!

Legos!

Hello!
I'm afraid I had to cancel the Easter Holiday post this year. Sorry! But here are some cool new Lego things!
                    


My dad got me and my sisters a set from the Lego Movie! This is the cloud castle and Unikitty it came with. I rearranged the cloud castle a bit because I couldn't find some of the pieces, but I think it turned out pretty good.


One of the things the set came with was Wildstyle, but I put Wildstyle's hair on one of my mermaids instead of on Wildstyle. 


Here is a little "underwater" scene that me and my dad made.


Have you watched The Lord of The Rings? If you have, you might recognize this scene that my dad made. Isn't it cool?!


He even got some of the Lord of The Rings characters, including Legolas, my favorite character from the Lord of The Rings. Here he is with his bow and arrows. 

Bye for now!

Horse Camp and Book Reviews!


                                                 Hello! I just got back from horse camp!



We got to ride horse and ponies. This is me on Butters. And sometimes we got to ride on our own, too! 

Also, I have started a GoodReads account. Click HERE to read some of my book reviews. I'm going to be reviewing some Dragon Slayers Academy books soon, as well as some more Magic Tree House books and American Girl books. (I just finished some library books.)

Easter is coming soon! I will do a Easter post soon. 

Peace, Love, and Horses!

Legos and other Photos!

I hope you all had a good St. Patrick's Day! 

Raise your hand if you like Legos! Me, my sisters, and my dad were just making a Lego town yesterday. My dad made this Lego cottage for me as a surprise, and I decorated it and added some other things too.





 

Here is my dad's cabin:


Isn't it awesome? 

Look at this cool photo my mom took of me:

 
 The quote is from Peter Pan. 


Hey, guess who's in the new Muppet movie? Me!!!

 
 Hehe, just kidding!

What do you do when your dad's in the grocery store and you're waiting for him in the car with your sisters and mom? Take a silly photo, of course!


That's all for today!

Peace, love, and boogie boards!
