This week I will be sharing a more personal side of my character Fiery the Dragon. She has chosen to share her pets, her favorite season/ holiday and a few make – up tips. You will discover that she is just your average dragon. Lets get started. Below you will find some videos of her favorite things.

Pupper Appreciation      2 Stars

This is one of Fireys pets, Taco. He is a small dog full of fun and loves to listen to her stories. He follows Firey around wherever she goes. He is a good companion and keep her company when she is alone. There are so many good photos of Taco, it was hard to pick just a few for this video. Also, Taco has learned how to stay away from Fireys uncontrollable fires. Below you will find the short video of Taco, enjoy.

A Word… A Picture… A Story      4 stars

This is one of Fireys favorite times of the year. She loves the winter months full of snow. Her favorite holiday is Christmas because that is when all the family has come home to celebrate the season. This is also when she tells story after story about Christmas gatherings from the past.

Im A Girl       2 1/2  Stars

Make- up, a girls best friend. Firey is all girl when it comes to her make – up. She has a different look for every occasion. She loves trying new styles as well as using older techniques. So if you ever see a dragon with wild make up on, you will know it is Firey. This video show a few of her favorite looks.

Firey also has a pet cat named Smokey, he is a rescue cat. She got Smokey when he was 2 maybe 3 days old. He had to be bottle fed, his eyes were not opened yet, he was all white and she didn’t know if he was a boy or a girl. Smokey loves to roll around on Fireys bed every morning. This cat is full of energy and runs around and plays with Taco all day. They make a mess but Firey loves watching them play together. 

What Do You Love       2 Stars

Quilts. You can never have to many quilts. These are just a few that she keeps around for story time. Her friends and family can use them to curl up in while she tells stories. The quilts are also used by the campfire for campfire stories.  Quilts keep you warm and surround you with love and that’s what makes them perfect for listening to one of Fireys stories.

I hope you have enjoyed getting to know Firey the Dragon a little better.

Week 10 Video Assignments

Video Assignments    12 Stars                                           4 Stars

The assignment: You probably have watched at least one arts and crafts video in your life. Now is your chance to make your own! Record yourself making a fun arts and crafts project tutorial.

I did a tutorial on English Paper Piecing, it is my portable hand sewing project. It is easy to carry around with me because I keep it in a pencil box. This is just a small way for me to stay creative and it helps me to relax. Unfortunately , my school work keeps me from sewing as much as I would like to.

#SixSecondArt                             2 Stars

The assignment:ix word stories, six word quotes, and six word poetry are all the rage. So why not six second art? Using any method of video, stop motion, or other visual medium, produce a six second video of you creating art. It could be digital art, physical art, or performance art, just create a six second video of you making it happen! Vine, Youtube, Vimeo, are all great places to host, although Vine happens to a great natural place for this type of work.

I made a video of my Accuquilt Go. It cuts fabric all the same size, I use the different shapes to create quilts and other various projects. This machine cuts the shapes all the same and makes it easier to piece together. I cute out the apple core shape for a future quilt.

Second Film(Kids Joke)                       4 Stars

The assignment: Make a super short, 5-second film; basically enough time for one gag, bit, or joke. See examples (ALERT: Not G-rated, generally) at http://5secondfilms.com/. Or alternatively, try your hand at creating a 5 second version of a major movie.

I made my 5-second film G-rated because I am going to be a teacher and I don’t want my students to find something on the web that is no appropriate for children. Students these days are into technology and do searches on their teachers to see what they can find. Also, I shot this outside on a nice, fall, breezy day which was appropriate for my silly little joke.


My Favorite Thing To Do (Machine Embroidery)  2 Stars

In this assignment, make a video of yourself doing your favorite hobby for 30 seconds to 1 minutes. Post it to your blog and then describe what you are doing in the video and what makes this hobby your favorite thing to do in your spare time.

My spare time is very limited these days. Every chance I get, you can find me in my sewing room making something with my embroidery machine. This happens to be a key chain with a music note on it. Both of my girls play in the orchestra so music has a special place in our home.
