new poem

ears are for hearing,
mouths for sneering,
eyes are for winking,
eyes for blinking,
fingers for snapping,
toes for tapping,

put them together for things to happen!

This is my very own shrunken head! Isn't he awesome? Or it might be a she, I'm not sure. I got him from Marsh's free museum in Long Beach WA. That was the most interesting place I have ever been to. It's jam packed with dried animals, two headed sheep,old dime machines, and skulls! And the main attraction is ... Jake the alligator Man! Oh I almost forgot, greeting you at the front door is a fortune teller, I forget his name unfortunately.

Paper Cranes

I read the book Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes by Eleanor Coerr a couple of months ago for school. I really liked it and thought that making all those cranes sounded really cool. I was going to start making cranes asap, but I forgot all about it. A couple days ago I saw something that jogged my memory so I started! I have made 31 so far. I'll have to make five a day 'till my b-day to do it but I'm being positive!

Wish me luck!

Here's a link that will explain the history of the cranes more thoroughly . It has some pretty pictures of other people who have already folded a thousand cranes .

new flamingos

These are my new additions to my flamingo collection. I have been looking for plastic classic flamingos for a long time. I have lots of almost right flamingos, but these are the ones!

I was going to name them but since they are identical I though it would be a bad idea. They might get offended or something. The missing legs are a mystery. The packaging said three pieces but only the bodies were in the bag. I'll have to find them new legs. I'll get different coloured wire so I can name them. I think George and Sue would be appropriate.
