Here at Diva no more mega diva it’s me, we have a penchant for children’s literature and at this time of year it’s just lovely to enjoy a much loved classic…The Snowman. And if that wasn’t Christmassy enough last year he found a new little pal … The Snowdog!!!! I love them both and today Mummy and me got all crafty and made our own little versions to decorate our home with.
Here’s how you do it…. It’s lots of fun
First draw and cut out The snowman using white card.
Then make him a green hat and scarf. We used special green foam but felt, or crayons or paints would be fine
Then glue him all over and stick on cotton wool and pat
Next it’s time to make him an orange nose, and look for materials to use as his buttons and eyes…. And then make him a lovely smiley mouth by twisting black or brown crepe paper. He looks so happy… I love him But he needs a pal doesn’t he ? Let’s get to work!
Using white card again, draw and cut out the shape of the Snowdog. Glue him all over apart from his ears and then get sticky with cotton wool and pat again. He will like this especially because he is a dog
Find two tiny black eyes and an orange nose. Ours were tiny fluffy balls but you could use felt or maybe even paint if you wanted, or cut up paper and stick
Then it’s time to make him two sock ears to keep him warm and a pink glove that goes on his tummy. We copied a picture to get the colours and the patterns just right…. And then stick them down.
And then get ready for the best part…. Introduce your Snowman to your Snowdog. They will like each other and you will feel very happy
Here at diva no more mega diva it’s me I hope you are all enjoying the run up to Christmas and I will be back to wish all my lovely diva followers a very happy Christmas soon.
When I was one I had just begun
When I was two I was nearly new
When I was three I was hardly me
When I was four I was not much more
When I was five I was just alive
But now I am six, I’m as clever as clever;
So I think I’ll be six now for ever and ever.
Here at Diva no more mega diva it’s me I have finally turned six and last night when I was still five, I could not sleep for excitement. Because I knew Minion Dave was on his way!! I stayed up until nearly midnight, lost and wandering . But now I am six and Minion Dave is here I am happy happy happy I have lots of lovely new toys and I had a fabulous birthday party with two very special guests…. only Belle and Rapunzel!!!! It was a big surprise for me and everyone came. I felt very special!
William found being around the Princesses hard, he pretended not to like them at all! But I think he did. I saw his cheeks go red
Thank you for popping by here, I love all my Diva followers! I’m looking forward to Christmas and I wish you all happy December days. See you all soon
With love Lucy age SIX!!!
Greetings…. I went hiding for a while but I’m back and I’m super duper excited because soon I will be six years old!!! I can’t wait for my birthday party…. I’m so excited because I have chosen the best present ever… I’m not going to tell you… Yes I am! I can’t contain my excitement, it’s all I can think about right now because I’m getting a despicable me minion! My very own Minion! It might talk or it might be just a soft toy. I don’t know the finer details… I have to wait… It’s proving hard for me. I am collecting despicable me stickers in an album. This is a good therapy for me because I’m can’t wait to get my hands on that Minion, I’m going to love it lots. It might be Dave, it might be Stuart. I just don’t know. :). Anyway tonight I am here to tell you about JDRF and their very cool campaign to raise money for children like me who have Type 1 diabetes . Look at what they have come up with… It’s simply fabulous.. Just like me!
World Diabetes Day is marked each year on 14 November by huge numbers of people around the globe. For World Diabetes Day 2013, we are inviting you to do something fresh, fun and fabulous – be a #TypeOnesie for JDRF, the type 1 diabetes charity.
What is a #TypeOnesie?
Being a #TypeOnesie involves wearing a onesie for the day to raise funds and awareness for JDRF. We want you to wear your onesie to school or work and be sponsored for it. And why not get your classmates or colleagues doing the same?
I love being in my ladybird onesie! What a clever idea! I get too hot in my onesie sometimes! Phew! Let’s hope JDRF raise plenty of money! I’m very lucky to have my insulin pump, but they are not available to everyone and that’s not fair! Life as a small person is hard enough without diabetes but my insulin pump allows me to eat at the same time as my friends. If I fancy a snack my insulin is always there so I don’t have to have lots of injections, just one big one every few days and then I’m all done for a while. So if you see people wearing onesies on Thursday, give them a smile or donate a little money to JDRF and help little people and big people just
Here at Diva no more mega Diva it’s me, we’ve been spending a lazy Sunday at home baking cakes and listening to show tunes on radio 2. That is when we are most happy
We decided to make some Halloween cupcakes
First mix together some butter and sugar! It’s hard work with a spoon so then we used an electric whisk
Then get excited because it’s time to have a go at cracking two eggs into the mixture My favourite bit! Watch out for shell bits!
Then add some self raising flour and a little milk. Then mix mix mix! It’s very hard to not lick the bowl at this point. I kept licking it. But don’t ever pick up a handful of unmixed flour and shovel it in like I did. It tastes nothing like sugar and it made me choke and cough. It was very dry and horrible, I needed a drink! Phew!
Once you have spooned the mixture into cases pop them in the oven until they are golden brown and smelling delicious.
Make some delicious buttercream with icing sugar and butter. Mix it all up and then use food colouring to make it look bright. We chose orange because that is the colour of pumpkins!
Once the cakes are out of the oven and all cooled down, decorate them with the buttercream and your halloween treats! Ours were foil wrapped chocolates. Silly Grandad started to eat his treat without removing the foil. Trick or treat…. But it was his own fault!
Here at Diva no More Mega Diva it’s me, we have just realised that we should have celebrated our first birthday last week! Yes, that’s right, one whole year has passed since I began telling all about tantrums and Type 1 diabetes. So, as if you needed telling, I am officially a queen, I have two birthdays! One to mark me turning six in November and another one right now to celebrate my site being one year old!!! We have had thousands of hits across the world from countries as far flung as Australia to China and all the way home to England! So I would like to say a huge thank-you to all my Lovely Diva followers! I love you all so much and I hope you have had fun reading my ups and downs as I paint the world 50 shades of Pink and raise awareness and money for children just like me who bravely live with Type 1diabetes 24/7 Here at Diva no More Mega Diva it’s me…… All you need is faith, trust and Pixie dust…… Good night x
Here at Diva no More Mega Diva it’s me,, I’ve just hopped back from Italy. Where I had the most fabulous time. Italy is almost as fabulous as me and I know that’s not easy…..
Well I was busy being my adorable self!
I was treated to a Venetian Mask, which I love because it is Pink and has feathers! And you cannot go wrong with that!
Like a bee to honey I found a Disney store and bagged myself another treat…. Thank you uncle Stevie and Aunty Chris
And now for my last trick…… I had a magical moment…. It was dusk in St Marks Square… People were everywhere and I was having fun. An older Venetian couple handed Mummy three red roses… She didn’t want to take them at first but they insisted. Then Mummy had the idea to pass on this kindness… And sent me off to hand out two of the roses to beautiful ladies sat right by us. They were most delighted and wanted to have pictures with me… It was all so beautiful and special…
Thank you for visiting me here at Diva no more Mega Diva it’s me….. I just love all my followers… And do you know I did not have any Diva moments…. Although I did rock a nasty hypo in the middle of Lake Garda on a pedalo but you have to keep them on their toes…. And that’s the most glamorous place I’ve ever gone low….
Here at Diva no more Mega Diva it’s me, staying amused over the six week holiday is not easy! (Unless you are a money bags) Costly days out are fine here and there, but fear not Diva followers, I’m here to show you how to make some fun with a few crafty items and odd bits from the kitchen!
Here is how to make yourself a little alien friend, should you so wish
1, Get twisty with some pipe cleaners for the body, arms and legs!
2, For the helmet use a top off some sort of washing liquid. (Ariel actilift works best) cut a hole and thread!
3, Make a jacket for your alien, using card or paper! Decorate with tinsel or glitter or paint
4, Make him some boots and gloves!
5, and then…… Stick on the googly eyes!
Here’s one I made earlier
Now you have your Alien he needs transportation! So make him a rocket by drawing and sticking! Use tissue paper or felt tips! We used tin foil from the drawer to make the windows Don’t forget the flames out of the bottom, so it looks like its blasting off!
Then make yourself a planet or a moon! We made the moon out of card and foil! We had fun making the craters!
Then choose somewhere to stick it up high!
Thankyou for visiting me here at Diva no more Mega Diva it’s me. I love all my happy followers
