The Worry Doll// Part Two

The sun shone brightly. All the birds began tweeting away, at their own pace. Ella yawned. Stretching her arms out, she slowly rolled out of bed, with her Worry Doll clutched tightly in her palm.Ella got ready for Camp. She was rather fast-paced indeed. She had a quick shower to freshen up, and ate her breakfast swiftly. She packed all of her bags that she needed for Camp. After all, she was going to be away from her parents for one night and two days.

Ella felt optimistic this time. She WAS ready to face what was waiting for her. And she knew what was awaiting. An adventure. An exciting one.

It was eight o’ clock in the morning, which meant that it was time to go to the school gates, to catch the bus which would take them to the Camp. Ella hugged her parents and her grandmother, and she checked that she did have everything. She did in fact, have all that she needed. She waved goodbye, and sprinted to school. Her heart was pumping as loud as a snare drum, but her heart pumped in full excitement.

Ella was just in time for the bus, which waited patiently outside the school gates. Ella hopped onto the vast bus, and her best friend Harriet joined her. They both greeted the bus driver, and clambered onto the seats at the front of the bus. Vroom, Vroom! The bus sped off. Harriet and Ella chatted away, about what was going on in school, as well as the new stationery set Harriet received on her birthday.

All of a sudden, Ella could feel a tingling sensation. This sensation was a bad one. She wasn’t able to sit still on the bus, and Harriet looked concerned.
‘What happened Ella? Are you okay?’ asked Harriet. Her pale face depicted the way she felt. Ella didn’t reply to Harriet.
‘I’ve forgotten it, I’ve forgotten it!’ Ella moaned.
‘Forgotten WHAT?’ questioned Harriet, bewildered.

Ella had forgotten to bring her defence, her saviour, her life- saver. She’d forgotten her Worry Doll, which sat on Ella’s bed at home. Ella panicked, She was just terrified and extremely anxious. What would she do at Camp? How would she abseil? How would she climb the high ropes? How would she do all these nerve-racking activities, all by herself?

Hey friends! I hope like part two! All the loose strings will be tied in Part 3, the final chapter.

See you all soon!

Mandala Captures//a collab with the awesome Angela @AWritingRose

Hello there! Angela and I have been drawing our own versions of mandalas at free time in school! Now get ready to get a glimpse of our artwork.

image one

The image above includes five mandalas! To be honest, drawing the five mandalas with Angela took us around twenty minutes. Going over the mandalas with fineliner did take us longer than we expected, though.

Keep scrolling to have a look at the mandalas close up!

Now onto the next set of mandala images- the pocket mandalas! These images will be put in collage form.

 

And now, last but not least, the MANDALA DREAMCATCHER!!!

Koala Sanctuary Photo Dump

Hey friends! I visited the Koala Sanctuary with my parents yesterday and we had an awesome time 😀 The sanctuary did have different types of animals in it, not JUST koalas. Now, let’s get on with the photos! Also, apologies for the awful photo clarity. The sanctuary was VERY VERY crowded, and they kept pushing and shoving when I was taking pictures.

Feel (a poem inspired by Danielle)

You can feel a ton of things
Some put a huge smile on your face
While others make your eyes water
Or make your brain to rush with fury
You might feel excited to do something
Or feel terrified thinking about what’s next
But shame might kick in at the same time
You might feel victory
Like punching your fists into the air
Or you might feel
Very needy
And ask someone for a hug
The big truth is that, though
Each person will feel different
Yet the same
All you need to do
Is respect others’ feelings.

See you soon!

Words

Hey there friends! I truly apologise, my last post was six days ago! I’ll try my best to post, once these assessments are out of my head. I’ve been overloaded with piles of homework and tests. Okay, let’s forget the randomness and get on with the post!

When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking

When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw you stick my first picture on the fridge with a magnet and I wanted to paint another one straightaway.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw you feed a stray cat, and I then learned that it was a good thing to be kind and friendly to animals.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw you make my favourite cake for me, and I then learned that little tings in life were big indeed.

When I thought you wasn’t looking I saw you chanting a prayer to God, and I learned to trust in God.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw you make a meal for a sick friend, and I learned that it was good to help those in need.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw you care for our house and everyone in it, and I learned that we have to take care of what we have.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw you handle responsibilities even when you felt down, and I then learned that I have to be responsible when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw tears running out of your eyes, and I then learned that it’s alright to cry sometimes.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw that you cared, and that I wanted everything that I could be.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I learned most of life’s lessons that I need to know to be a good and very productive person when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn’t looking I looked at you and wanted to say- “Thanks for all the things you did for me when you thought I wasn’t looking.”

~Mary Rita Schilke Korazan.

Thanks for being inspirational role-models to me, Mum and Dad. I can’t thank you enough for all the things you’ve done for me.  ❤
