Rachel's Presents

This is what I made for my sister's Christmas present. These are very different from my other finger puppets because none of these are original characters.

This is Perry the Platypus, the pet from the cartoon show, Phineas and Ferb. His expression is supposed to look blank and dumb because he doesn't do much.
I made a hat so that he can become Agent P, a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action.

This is Max from the classic children's picture book, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. I really tried to add personality to his face, but it doesn't show. I can't manipulate the needle well enough to get all the details right.

He comes with a crown that's a little bit big for him.

I am least satisfied with Harry Potter. It's upsetting because I really like this character.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
I have more free time now that I got accepted into a college, and that means that I can use more time to do the things I want, like making finger puppets. My dad said that I should really use this time well because I probably wont have this much free time for years. It's true. Once I get into college, I will be busy until I graduate. Once I get a job, unless I have a kind of job that gives me sabbaticals, I am won't have this kind of free time. So here is how I plan to use my time:
1. Read the books on my must-read list
2. practice my cello and my accordion
3. get a job
4. write!
5. make more puppets and stuff
6. go out more
7. find and listen to music
8. a big scale project that will bring change or awareness in my community

What else should I do with my precious time? Do you have an suggestions? What would you do if you had a few months to dedicate to whatever you wanted?

Anyway, expect a post with some serious writing soon.

  1. Your plans reminds me of reading more books during free time this year. I haven't really read a book since last year, all the school works destroyed my mood of reading. (maybe it is an excuse..LOL)...ah seems like I need to come up with a plan of 2011 soon.
