Skrink and Curl

For my birthday I got a Certificate of Creativity, enabling me to a trip to Hobby Lobby, a Klutz Kit, and something I chose. I recently ordered the Klutz Kit off of It is called Shrink Art Jewelry, and you make jewelry out of shrinkydinks! For those of you who don't know, shrinkydinks are pieces of plastic. So you have sheet of shrink plastic, and you draw something on it. Then you cut it out, stick it in the oven, and, voila, you have a tiny piece of decorated plastic. They shrink down a LOT, about a third of the size of the plastic you cut out.

So anyway, yesterday, it arrived in the mail- YAY YAY YAY! Today, after I finished all of my schoolwork, I started working. Now, also in this kit there are a ton of patterns, suck as flowers and animals and all. There is a really cute squirrel in there, and as you may know, I am fond of squirrels. So... I traced it and colored it. I was going to make a pendant necklace, and so I did.

I have now made... a pair of earrings- a star and a moon, colored yellow and black, a pendant with a yellow and red plaid background with an outline of an ADORABLE rabbit, a tear-shaped pendant with an A on it, for Anna.... I will post pictures in a minute!

Artemis Fowl The Time Paradox

This book is the last one out so far, but Eoin Colfer is writng another. The sixth in the Artemis Fowl series wouldn't lead the rest, but it is in my top 15 favorite books. (Duh, all of the Artemis Fowl books are in that list). It is seriously a life saving book.

Deffinately consider reading this book. Mr. Colfer's great work is getting bigger and bigger, and so should his fans be. This book is great. This book is awesome. This book is supertasticallyamazingfabulisticallyperfectlytotallyandcompletelyawesomely superduperduperduperduper!!!!! I love that word, haha, I just made it up.

Artemis Fowl The Lost Colony

Yet another of Eoin Colfer's books are great... this one is by far my totally and completely FAVORITE of all the Artemis Fowl books. With another species of fairy to add to the excitment, the Artemis Fowl books have been made–how shall I put it-, if possible, more exciting.

The brains of Mr. Colfer's main character shoot through the book like a rocket through space. What makes this book my favorite of all Artemis Fowl books is that the plans, the way everything works, is so spectacularly brilliant. If you wanted to read a great book, this is the one to go for. DEFFINATELY read it.

Artemis Fowl The Opal Deception

The Opal Deception is the fourth in the Artemis Fowl series, by Eoin Colfer, author of The Supernaturalist, The Wish List, and Airman. With an evil Fairy back at large, but staying hidden, Artemis Fowl and all of the others have to work hard to stay alive. And with a stolen painting in the story line as well, the book couldn't be more action-packed. With a criminal mastermind, however, it is hard to not be involved in everything interesting.

This book is so good! Mr. Colfer has once again done great things with words. If you haven't read this book yet, you totally should. And if you have read it but have forgotten it, read it again.

Artemis Fowl The Eternity Code

The third in the series by Eoin Colfer, author of The Supernaturalist, The Wish List, and Airman, increases my love of these books immensely. With a great deal of action, the Fairy People an Artemis Fowl, the criminal mastermind who is only thirteen, get involved in a plan of which I would never have been able to carry out, if my life depended on it, which it would. And with added in humor, what could be better?

Mr. Colfer has added another great book to his works. If I were to write an Artemis Fowl book, it would be so boring and all of the plans which Artemis whips up would be so simple an earthworm could have thought them. That's how great this book is. If you read it, you will not regret it. Ever. I promise.

Artemis Fowl The Arctic Incident

The second book in the series Artemis Fowl, by Eoin Colfer, author of The Supernaturalist, The Wish List, Airman, and the Artemis Fowl series, is indeed one of my favorites. With Artemis Fowl, the criminal mastermind, aged thirteen, wanting to go on a rescue mission, and the LEP (Lower Elements Police) having trouble with a few of the Fairy People, the story gives twists and turns, while they all help each other in getting what they want, or need.

This book is amazingly written. Mr. Colfer has shown a great deal of skill in this novel, and I am sure it would satisfy anybody who laid their eyes on it. I completely encourage you to read it.

Book Reviews

I have decided to start doing book reviews on my blog. I have never done a book review before, so they will not be very high class. But oh well.


Artemis Fowl, the first book in the series Artemis Fowl, is by far one of the best books I have ever read, of which there are thirteen. They are written by Eoin Colfer, author of The Supernaturalist, The Wish List, and Airman (none of which I have read).

Mr. Colfer, in my opinion, does an amazing job expressing the feelings of the characters. I have always thought it stupid when books show the story from only one person's point of view, but this book is unlike that. From criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl to Captain Holly Short of the LEP (Lower Elements Police) and back again, all fitting into one fabulous story of unending surprises. This book is terrific, and I highly recommend it.

Drip, drop, drip

Snow is melting. Fun is ending. Boredom is coming.

Or is it? No, not for me. Because I am going to my grandparent's house today, I wouldn't be going if I weren't going to have fun!

My girlfriend cousins are going up there today, and so am I! I don't see them often, so it will be nice. That last time I saw them was Thanksgiving.

This is probably the shortest post I've ever written. No, it IS the shortest post I've ever written. It's just so boring! Nothing happens, it seems, after something big, like a snowstorm in Texas (OKAY, not snowstorm) which includes losing electricity. But something, at at last, will be interesting after another interesting thing that is over.

OK, end. Time to go read some other weirdo's blog! You, not me.

Snow? In Texas? I must be going zany!

It has been snowing all day long, nonstop. Yes David, it may be lame in words, but actually, it is so cool! Half a foot of snow in Texas? I mean, we rarely get snow AT ALL, so six inches is a lot. In fact, it is probably way more by now.

Thomas and some of our neighbors made a HUGE, and when I say huge, I mean HUGE, as in HUMONGOUS, snowman on the corner of the street. I believe that I am correct in saying that they were planning on hanging a sign around its neck that read, "Are you fat too?" Sooo funny.

Me and my friend Rose made a snowman each–only hers kept falling apart. Mine stayed together, but got covered in snow and so I have to destroy him, because you couldn't see his adorable features.

Snowball fights went on all day, as well, my fave was of me and Rose against Thomas, he's really good. We could barely hit him four times. I only got hit by him twice, though, because I dodged REALLY well! Yay me!

I had to put all of my clothes in the dryer after the first couple of hours, and then I had to change back out of them AGAIN and where something different, because they got so soaked with snow! It was so amazing!

Well, I have run out of snow stories. So, bye until my next post.

A little of my life... or smaller amounts.

Woah! Long time since I've written. But there is such a thing as busy, as most of you would know!(if not all)

So, let's catch up. I started taking ice skating lessons again! Last year I did it, too, in the fall. They are at The Plaza Of The Americas. It has an amazing rink! There are eight lessons, one every Tuesday. You rent skates, and then there is a half hour session when we LEARN. I am OK at it, but not as good as our teacher! Last year we had someone different and she wasn't a very good teacher. Our teacher this year is SUPERB! I, of course, had a lesson yesterday. But enough of that.

Mary Margaret, my sister, and perhaps yours too, and Benjamin, my brother, got home from a week long trip to the Big Apple last night! I enjoyed myself so much while she was gone. I slept in Rebecca's room, and Homer with me! I quite enjoyed having a room to myself.

Since only Thomas, my Mom and Dad, and me were home, we went out to eat a lot. The first time we went to Potbelly's. Nate works there. I had a pizza sandwich, yum yum!

Then we tried to go to a place called Rudy's, but we couldn't find it. So we went to a Mexican Diner called Taco Diner. It was way too expensive. I had a cheeseburger. Huh? A CHEESEBURGER? In a Mexican Restaurant? Well, too bad. It was good anyway.

We went to Angelo's on the last night, Monday. It is a pizza and spaghetti place. I had a ten inch Meatlover's Pizza. It had bacon, sausage, pepperoni, and Canadian bacon on it! It was delicious! (though I had to take some home)

OK, I have things to attend to, and you probably do to. So-Bye!
