DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL DIY-er

First up! wall hanging!

things you need:

  • Card stocks
  • markers and a pencil
  • scissors
  • glue
  • 2 colored papers
  • thread

My table is a bit messy, dont mind that.

On the card stock, draw a cloud.

did you read the disclaimer?

then, cut it out. Trace it on another card and now you should have two clouds..

a lot of paint was spilled, so.. the table looks very messy.

then, you’re gonna glue the clouds together.

yes, I stapled them together . then, you paint it with white.

now, cut the thread into 4 equal … strips?

and then, I taped them to the back of the cloud.

it’s upside down. ughh.

then, with the colored paper, cut out lots of hearts,

then, glue the hearts to the attached thread like this:

I had to glue the strings, they kept coming off. this is how yours should look like. add two pieces of double sided tape.

I tried to write my name.. but in the end.. I just smudged it all together.

Stick it in a corner of your room!

Sock Bunny!

things you need:

  • An orphan sock.
  • two cups of rice.
  • Permanent markers.
  • elastic bands.
  • scissors.

Fill the sock with rice.

tie it up with an elastic on the top and in the middle.

then, cut the top into a V shape [for the ears] like this:

are we forgetting something? yes! the tail!! bunch up and tighten with an elastic!

grab your markers and draw a cute face!

A peek in my school journal👀📖……. TLWOF Day 5.

today, after I finished my chemistry Biology class, I found my old school journal. I mean not an OLD SCHOOL. an old JOURNAL that I used in school last year. Sixth grade. First year of Middle school. It was amazing!☺️ I like to keep track of all the things, so later when I look back at it later, a lot of memories come flooding [like today *sobs*]

I flipped thru the pages and I found a fun celebration/event. I thought of doing something different for today’s post. [you probably know by the title]. I’ll be giving you a peek in my journal! My handwriting is terrible. Only I can understand what I’ve written.🤪 . I had to buy a new journal becoz I finished my first one 😝. Anyway, here’s a snap. You probably won’t understand any of it, but that’s why I’m here . To explain! this was written on the Christmas Celebration at my school:😍🎉

Clientmoji
me, being a potato. literally.

By the first lines,”we didn’t rehearse” I meant that we didn’t practice singing Carols [I was in the choir] We have a place called “Amphitheater” that’s where we have all of our assemblies, gatherings and special events and celebrations. The cafeteria is right behind the AT [Amphitheater].

when we went on stage to sing Carols. I got the Mic [I wrote the spelling as ”MIKE” 😂] But it didn’t work. Then there was a dance performance [ I mentioned that it was “astounding”]

Then there was Santa! [a.k.a one of my teachers] SANTA threw out chocolates! i found one near me, so I shared it with my friend! [ K.P is one of my friends]

We came to class, [ joys and I are close friends she made cards for everyone in our class and we sneakily kept all the cards under the Christmas tree in our class So it would look like someone left these cards for our class] Near all those cards, I left a note saying ‘MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! HO HO HO! [ To look like it was from Santa.] A while after everyone came to class, they were all so excited to see the cards. Even our teacher didn’t know that it was actually us! But then they figured it out! by my handwriting! but it was so nice surprising my mates :)🤗. the rest of the day, we had stack classes [which is just advanced science and math] but behind us, there was a ‘know it all’ who kept shouting out the answers throughout the class! it was so annoying! 🙄🙄

Clientmoji

alright! hope you had a fun time in my shoes! I did this post because I miss going to school a lot and I’m happy I did this!😛

I hate bananas. but this one’s nice.

My blogging experience (so far…..) TLWOF, Day 4.

hello🤗!

This post is all about my blog, why I started it and my evolution 😺.

Why did I start blogging? And why did I name my blog Thoughts and Dashes?

I’ve already written about why I started blogging, click here to read more: and this is why this blog is called Thoughts and Dashes…

Well, I always have thoughts on my mind and I am a daydreamer.
But, when my mom asked me what to name my blog, I suddenly thought of “Dots and Dashes”.
So then, I was like ” why not name it Thoughts and Dashes??

about my blogger blog.

I started my blog in Blogger on the 14th of April. My blog readers were mostly my family, or my friends. My dad told about moving my blog to WordPress, but by that time, I really liked blogger. (Because I didn’t know what WordPress was😂)

After a month of blogging, I decided to maybe shift my blog to WordPress. I did some research and I looked up some WordPress blogs. They were really good! It looked very professional and there are thousands of themes to choose from! So, on the beginning of June, I started working on redirecting my blog to WordPress. after a couple of day, I started designing my template and my theme. on the 16th of June, I launched My blog in WP. I’m so glad I moved to WP, because Now It looks professional and I made a lot of new friends and met some new people! also, WP has a small bell icon on the right top corner, whenever there are new comments or likes or follows, I get notified! but the notifications are terrible in blogger. [my honest opinion] i have to log in to blogger and check for new comments or follows, by MYSELF.

Adding contact forms or just any form in general is very easy in WP . the block editor in WP is something I find reaalllyy useful. So. that’s it …. What about my “blogging evolution”? to be honest, I don’t really know…

but. I still have my Blogger blog’s link if you want to check it out: https://itzevinhere.blogspot.com/

what do you think is better?

Blogger or WordPress?

So.. that is it! But now about the shout-outs

Shout-outs!

By the end of this week, I’ll be giving out 5 shout-outs to the “Liveliest people”

all you need to do is follow this blog (if you are already following, thanx🤗) and comment on TLWOF! [yes,that’s it]

Also, as you may know, my blog is in the top 100 blogs in feedspot, here’s a link https://blog.feedspot.com/kids_blogs/

Did you read my new post @ my travel blog? If not what are you waiting for?😂

Life has changed.. A lot. + Announcement!

So.. getting through this time can be pretty hard.. and this post is all about that!

I miss going to school.. (to meet up with my friends, not for any other reason I know…)

Also, going to class IN school is way better than online classes.

I couldn’t even visit my best friend on her birthday! And, even if I COULD visit her, we have to be social distancing (I know it’s for “safety measures,” but still!!!!)

it’s like we’re strangers!

Anyways, I’m not sure if I want to go back to school yet.

Here is a list of reasons why..

  • I have to wake up early. My sleep schedule has totally changed. I go to sleep at midnight (I’m writing this at 11:00 pm😂😂) and I wake up really late. So I don’t wanna wake up early…
  • I have to wear a uniform. No more learning in comfy clothes. Or eating breakfast in bed while listening to classes.
  • I have to carry a heavy load of books. Not that I can’t but.. books are so heavy!!
  • 7th grade is hard.

Yup.

My mom told me about this thing called ” Zero education year”.

It’s like this.. we learn through online services until the end of this pandemic. We won’t be graded. But.. we also won’t be promoted to the next year, so I have to study 7th grade for another year (Yikes!!). But, I like to learn new things, but still!

The announcement;

I got selected by feedspot for top 100 blogs !!!! That is so exciting 🤩.

Also.. here is a short story of my life.

Not the baby of the house anymore..lol

The baby of the house is the youngest of a family. For 11 whole years, I was that. Until the 19th of October, 2019. The day my totally adorable cousin baby brother was born.

Not that I’m jealous or anything.. but I’m not the baby of the house anymore!!!

P.S I ❤️ my baby bro.

The end
