Fishtail Braid

Yay! My first hair tutorial!'s not that much a tutorial but I tell you how to do a hairstyle so I guess it is a mini tutorial. ;-)

All you do is gather only the top part of your hair and start fishtail braiding. Fishtail braiding is where you part your hair in 2 equal pieces and take a tiny section of hair from 1 side and bring it to the other side,then take a tiny piece of hair from that side and cross it over to the other side. Keep repeating that and pretty soon you will have completed the braid. If this doesn't make since to you,you can check out YouTube for some great tutorials. 

Happy Braiding! ;-)

My Hunger Games Party

For my 18th birthday this year,I had a Hunger Games themed party. I made oragami cranes for Mockingjays,parachutes out of foil and tissue paper,my sister and I made some Hunger Games scrapbook-type posters,we got fire colors for the plates,table cloth,and cups(red,orange,yeallow),and my mom made some awesome food! We looked at recipes from the Hunger Games cookbook and from online to get ideas on what to make. I decided to have a brunch party(mmm...brunch!) so everything was breakfast food. We had fruit tray,cinamon rolls,apple squares,quishes,and a breakfast casserole,complete with Hunger Games inspired names. My mom also made a punch and a cookie cake and strawberry poke cake(also adorned with Hunger Games-ness). My mom always does a great job with parties. This one was lots of fun! May the odds be ever in your favor!

Ron's Animal Cracker Hat

Here is yet another Harry Potter related crocheted creation. This one is Ron's Animal Cracker hat that he wore in the third movie. I used this pattern for the hat. Now I can feel like a Weasley! :-)
