This is my latest project and sorry for not doing posts on my blog, but we will try to do it more often. Violet is a Blythe doll that my mom gave to me and is very special. Her eyes change which is kind of creepy to some people, and I named her Violet because I love that name and also I decided to make her a dress that has a violet flower on it and some cute felt flats for her because she just came with boots and I don't have other shoes for her and I don't have a dress for her either. Now I have two dresses!
And then I used a special embroidery marker (water erases it easily) to draw the violet I wanted to embroider on the dress. I used a simple running stitch for every part of the flower, and just changed my colors for each special part of the flower. My mom blanket stitched the sleeve and neck of the dress to keep it from stretching. Later we used scalloped scissors to make a pretty hemline.

This is me with buttercups in my hair. This is my favorite flower. I pressed some of them to make a necklace. I'm supposed to bring a picture for the first day of school and the first day of school is tomorrow and I'm really excited and it's on Monday. I chose this picture because it was the most recent one that I liked the best.

Once upon a time, there was a girl who loved to play in the snow in the afternoon. The only thing she did was get snowflakes on her tongue. After she played in the snow she drank her hot chocolate. She loved the warm warm warm hot chocolate. It was so warm that she couldn't believe it. She drank until she could see the duckie head. And her mom took pictures of it.

(this is for a report in school)
The Hopi knew how to live in the desert. They traveled a long way to get wood for their ladders. They made their houses out of adobe blocks, using sand and clay from the desert. It was really hot in the morning and in the night it was really cold. The thick walls made it not too cold or hot inside. The doors were up high, to keep out the animals. They used ladders instead of stairs, so the animals couldn't get up. They ate corn, melons, squash, and beans. They don't need much water to grow.
How I made it:
I got three boxes, taped them together, and then I got sculpey to put on and then I covered it with salt dough. I mixed equal amounts of flour and salt, then added water. And then I wanted it brown so we tried to mix food coloring together to make brown. And it didn't work, so we had to get some real soil. And then I spread it on the three boxes.
The next day, I spread on another coat.
We made plants out of toothpicks, floral tape, leaves from a pretend flower, green wire, tissue paper, and clay. My sister helped me "plant" the garden. We used clay for the soil.
They planted squash, melons, corn, and beans. So did I, but I wouldn't eat them! Of course I wouldn't, because they're just made out of materials, not real food. I like beans and corn for real, but only sometimes I like corn.
I spread thin clay (slip) on the cardboard. I got the stones from the beach last weekend on my vacation.
