The Post of Shameless Self-Promotion

Uh-huh. This post is all about my amazing cake decorating abilities and my new team cooking blog with my mom. Oh yeah!

Below is the ice cream cake my mom and I baked, and I decorated, for a friend's baby shower. She used to baby sit me sometimes before she moved to Arizona! Very far from where I live, I can tell ya' that!
Here's the cake. It had already been in the freezer for a while, so it was starting to droop a bit.
The cake was chocolate chip with mint chocolate chip ice cream. The icing was home-made whipped cream and the colored icing was just sugar, water, and coloring (So, more sugar.)

It was based off the napkins below.

I even put a monkey on!
Isn't he cute?! :-)
Now, the blog my mom and I are doing is called Once Upon a Cookie Pan. I named it! You should check it out. Once I finish this post (So, it will already be up once you've read this.) I'll be writing a cookie recipe post. And tomorrow morning/afternoon we'll put up a recipe for the ice cream cake and the whipped cream. So, probably ditto to the above in parenthesis.

Well, that's enough of my ego for one night, then!

Watch out for tomorrow's birthday post!

Cheerio, peeps!

Stick Figures

A figure made of sticks and stones,
has no bones to break.

A figure made of sticks is wood
but not flesh and blood.

A person can't be made of sticks
but what if the answer is

If a stick figure is a person
what is the answer to that?

I haven't the faintest clue what that was. But I got inspiration from this poem.

Cheerio, peeps.

DISCLAIMER!!! Sorry, for all my weird cynicism/craziness tonight. I'm frickin' tired and I hit my arm on the kitchen table, got blisters from new shoes, cut myself shaving, and got clawed up by my cat, all within less than 24 hours of each other.
Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
'Night, all!

Cheerio, peeps!

Friday the 13th

Hooray! :-)

Screw the superstitions and let the curses begin! LOL.
I laugh at superstitions. I will gladly walk under ladders and I love black cats. Friday the 13th is fun. AND in the same month as my birthday!
Although, it would have been cool if Friday the 13th had been last August, when I turned 13. Oh, well.
And now you know how old I am.

And I found more of those Hogwarts blogs. (And my STUPID computer didn't think Hogwarts was a real word!!!!!!)

Slytherin House (Again. And still my favorite... God, I feel GUILTY!)

Cheerio, peeps!

P.S. 8 days till my birthday! Now I'm off to write more of my new manuscript. :-)

Alice in Wonderland and Slytherin House-The Marauders' Generation

Since I didn't want to use new shoes as my first design test, I'm going to use an old pair of purple Converse that I don't wear very often. I'm making them Alice in Wonderland themed.
Like the books, not any of the movies.

I'll have the daisy and wildflower, "We're all mad here" and the Cheshire cat, white and black chess pieces, "Curiouser and curiouser", a mirror, a rabbit, and some other stuff. If you don't know what some of that has to do with A in W, then read the books!

Surprisingly entertaining. Even though I previously (And still kind of do...) hate pretty much everyone, I really like it. It's making them seem like people!
My favorite is HBP (Snape) and Regulus Black, but I've always loved him (Well, ever since I figured out AT THE END OF BOOK 6 that Regulus had destroyed Voldy's horcrux, anyway. I'm smarter than the characters-I figured it out RIGHT when I saw the initials! *Smirk*). Regulus' post are really kind of cute. :-)

Cheerio, peeps!

P.S. Birthday in 10 days!
And I did pretty good in yesterday's audition. Keep you fingers crossed!! :-)

Monday, 9 August 2010


Yes, I did just call this post shoes.

But that is because I'll be making my own! :-D
When we were on our road trip, we went to Toronto. And in Toronto is one of the coolest museums ever. It's all about the history of shoes. So I got this REALLY, REALLY awesome book about people making designs on their own shoes and stuff.
As a birthday present to myself, I've decided to make a pair.
Today my mom and I are going to some craft stores to buy the stuff I'll need. And then later today, or sometime this week, we'll go find a pair of white Converse, and I'll possibly buy some different color laces, because just white would be boring!
And I'll wear them FOREVER! :-)
I'm also hoping that at school, people will like them. Maybe I can get some money out of it...?
I won't count on it, but I'll keep my fingers crossed.
It might work better when I'm in high school, though.
But I'm starting to need the money... O.O

Once I'm done, I'll post pictures, but I'll give you my ideas right now.

Right shoe: Kind of piratey/Goth/punk. (Yes, I DO mean pirates. They ROCK and invented the original skull and crossed bones, which will be on it.) There'll be music notes and lots of black and skulls and some cool stuff like that.

Left shoe: The other one is sort of fairy tale like. It will, of course, be minimal pink. I don't really like pink much... But there'll be purple and some flower doodles and some trees, maybe a crown. BUT the words 'once upon a time' will be on it, because they rock! :-)

Ooooh!!! Good idea!!!! I am brilliant! LOL.
Because I love to write, the other shoe will be central around 'it was a dark and stormy night!'
I am so smart!!!!!!
They will be the ultimate teen, punk, author shoes!
And they will be MINE!! ALL MINE!!!

LOL! :-D

I'm happy, and, for no reason I can think of, slightly hyper!

Some time in September, I'm going to have a pre-Halloween party, with monster movies. Dracula and possibly Frankenstein, and MAYBE even Young Frankenstein.
My parents have some friends with this really big, blow up movie screen, that makes it sorta like a drive-in movie theater, so that is AWESOME. Gotta love the classics.
And for Halloween itself, even though it's on a Sunday, I'll invite some people over for a double sleep over. We can stay up really late on Saturday, and then we'll be tired after walking around all Sunday night, so we'll sleep, and then go to school in the morning.
Perfect plan!

My neighborhood ROCKS because Trick-Or-Treating is ALWAYS on Halloween NIGHT!!!
Most places just go on a weekend afternoon. We are so cool!

I ♥ Halloween!

And I am so hyper!

12 days until my birthday!

Tomorrow, I'm trying out for some plays with a monologue I wrote and "No Good Deed" from Wicked, which I saw last Wednesday for the THRID time. And I L-O-V-E it!!!!

I'm starting at 'What good is this chanting...' and end with the chorus, which is really fun to sing.
The monologue is from a previous camp, about a vampire with some problems controlling her charge, Benedict.
If I get published, look out for the second book! You'll meet Illiana and Benedict then!

Well, that's pretty much everything, then...

Cheerio, peeps!
