My day to day life!

Sorry, I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been SUPER busy! Anndd because I don’t have a topic picked on to post out today I thought I would just tell you a bit about what I’ve been up to! Costume designing – So I’m not one to sew a lot, but I thought I might as well help with costumes for The Christmas Carol I’m in. So far I’ve made Marley’s costume (pictures to come later), and several skirts (photos to come later). I’m having a lot of fun making costumes!

The Christmas Carol – I’m one of the Charity worker’s “Grace.” I’m also a caroler and a townsperson (picture of me in my costume to come later). I’m having a lot of fun working with all 58 cast members and soon getting to know the stage crew. 

Piano – I do play the piano! It’s enjoyable…I may not be professional, and I may never be professional, but it’s still fun to play around on it. The last couple of months I’ve been playing piano of a nursing home ministry which is fun but is taking up to much of my time, so I’m quitting next month 😦 This year I’m playing “Deck the Halls” Arr. By Martha Mier, it’s really cool! Hopefully, I have it finished in time for my Christmas recital.

Church – Some of the teenagers at my church do “Talents For Christ” every year. It’s fun (most of the time). We’re memorizing  1 & 2 Timothy KJV this year. I’m also entering a stained glass heart with a rose in the middle, and my sister and I are going to sing something for TFC probably. I also make coffee and hot water for morning church (sometimes I make muffins or cookies)! Also, my siblings and I are involved in a Club for the kids at our church.

School – School is pretty simple this year! Teaching Texts books Algebra  1, “Exploring World History” by Ray Notgrass (Bible and English are included with History), Science, and music lessons. Plus my mom reads Lamplighter Books sometimes for History! Currently, we’re reading The Cross Triumphant by Florence M. Kingsley.

Sorry about the quality of these photos (notice all the fabric and costumes in the background).

Also this past week we went to a college to rent some period costumes for the play (here are some photos from that). Though sadly we didn’t rent any dresses just coats for the guys.

My Sister

Later today I’ll be working on more costumes! So wish my luck!! (also I will take a few photos of the costumes my sister and I made).

​See you next time!

It dumped about 12 inches of snow on us Thursday! So pretty and fun…but a pain to clear off the roads!

Thanksgiving name card craft!

Today I’m going to show you guys this cute pilgrims hat I made for Thanksgiving and how you guys can make it (I know its early, but I LOVE Thanksgiving)!!!

Let’s get started!

Take a dixie cup and hot glue a piece of black construction paper to it.
Cut out a round circle a little bigger then the cup and glue it over the opening of the cup to seal it up! 
Cut out a long strip of black, a little more than a 1/2 inch wide and long enough to fit around the bottom of the hat. Also, take a yellow piece of construction paper and cut out a piece about 1 inch wide and 1 inch long. Fold it in half and cut it in two places though don’t cut it all the way through.
Weave the black strip through the yellow paper and attach them both to the hat – make sure the seams line up in the back.
Take a tooth-pick and stick it through the top of the hat making a hole – take hot glue and secure the tooth-pick. Then take a strip of brown construction paper and fold it into a sign, add the person’s name to the brown paper and attach it to the toothpick and you’re done!!
I hope you guys had a fun time reading this. I made 11 for everyone coming over…notice the picture below has two hats that have feather-like objects instead of signs – take red and yellow construction paper and cut five pieces of each color out and attach them to the tooth-pick. Then take yellow construction paper and cut out 1-inch square and write the person’s name on it.

Note: two of the names are covered up for privacy reasons. 

Comment and let me know if you would consider doing this for Thanksgiving!

See you guys soon!
