TBC Crafters 71 – Make Up Set for Dolly

My daughter Miss Porky really falls into making stuffs for her dolls these days. During the summer vacation when she has no summer camp, she discovered some channels in Youtube and watched how these Youtubers made things for their Barbie or Bythe or High School Monster dolls. I am kind of concerned and not concerned – she is mature/well-behaved enough to watch videos in Youtube. We have mutual understanding what can be watched and what cannot. I also monitor what they have watched by checking the watch history. Both of my children understand and know that their privileges would be taken away if they violate the rules.

What I concerned is that Miss Little Porky has made a whole bunch of crafts that I just cannot stand for her making the home a mess. She has paper scraps, cut pipe cleaners, beads, ribbon strips everywhere and glue stick on my computer table (which is also used as our craft table). Every night after I get off from work and open the front door, Miss Porky jumped out and has 2 sparkling eyes on her face, all excited and eager to show me what she has made. I am really happy that Miss Little Porky finds something that she likes, possibly she would be just like me – love crafting for the whole entire life!

Let me show you one piece of the dolly “project” that she has made a few weeks ago. (I know, I have been lazy and this should be posted earlier…) It contains 2 items- the eye-shadow palette and the nail polish bottles.

TBC Crafters 70 : Alien Pencils Family

 

Miss Porky time again this week! She actually has completed this piece last week and I saved it for this week’s TBC Crafters post. Miss Porky is attending summer camp just like other children all over United States. Her summer camp emphasizes on arts and crafts. The children would work on arts and crafts, cooking, tinkering… everything that involves children’s participation in the afternoon. Miss Porky particularly likes the afternoon session and looks for it everyday.

According to Miss Porky, she learnt how to make Alien Pencil in the summer camp. However, the idea of making a family was her originality. This week, Miss Porky demonstrated the steps and I took pictures. Unfortunately, my camera was damaged (stupid me dropped it into a bucket of waste oil and I could see the disguising oil appeared on the LED screen when I turned the camera on) and I would be using my cellphone before I can find a good camera in an affordable price.
