Happy Canada Day!!!

This post won't be a " About the weekend" post, because this is a long weekend, I will do that post tomorrow. Happy Canada day!!! What are you going to do today? Or What did you do today? Are you going to see the fire crackers? After Disneyland, I don't ever want to see any other fireworks. The fireworks  at Disneyland were AMAZING!! I am doing this post in the morning, and we still MIGHT see fireworks, but I don't really want to. In the afternoon one of my friends and her family and my family are going to go somewhere for a BBQ! But, not all my family are going. Esther won't be going. WHY? Because, she is at a camp being a cook for two weeks. She phoned up today, after being there for three days, and she only had three bars on her phone! When I tried to talk to her, I had to hang up because I couldn't hear her. And I never got to finish talking to her. :( She said there  is lots of bugs, and her cabin door doesn't close all the way so there is lots of mosquitoes, and that bugs get in her clothes. She is on a Island, so she can't escape!!! Eva REALLY misses her, it is so sad. We all miss her too. The house is so quite without her! The only half good thing about Esther being good is.. 1. No one is singing in my ear. 2. I can steal all her clothes. ~ Abby ca.K.e

Crafty Wednesday: Photo shoot!

 For a contest  I'm entering I needed to do a Littlest Pet Shop photo shoot with Daisy!!! The theme was spring, so I went with Carnival games. In Canada, the only times amusement parks are open are in spring and summer. That's why Daisy is playing a carnival game. You can only play them in Summer. So yesterday I went outside and did a photo shoot. I took about 17 pictures, and had to chose less than five. I chose three photos, I'm only going to show you one. It's not finished yet, I need to finish editing the photo and put works on it, then it will be done. I'm going to show you the difference of an edited photo and just a normal photo.

This is a photo that has been edited. I use a editing system to make everything look more colorful and bright.

You might be thinking " Wait this photo doesn't have that hippo in the background!". Yes I know that, this was a photo that was without the hippo in the background because I was seeing what looked better. This is what the photo would look like if it wasn't edited, everything looks a little grey right? 
What do you like better? The edited photo or non edited photo? ~ Abby ca.K.e 

I know I left you for two weeks... + Esther was home on the weekend!

I know,that I left you for two weeks. That I didn't do any blog posts, and that I didn't even tell you I was going to leave you. Two weeks ago, Esther left to volunteer at a camp as a cook, this camp is on a island, and the only way to get there is by boat!!! I didn't do blog posts because I was getting my tooth pulled that week and I wasn't in the mood for blogging. Why didn't Eva do the posts? She missed Esther.
 Last week I was at a gymnastics day camp Monday to Friday, 9:00 AM- 4:00 PM. In the morning I had no time to blog, and when I came home I was too tried. But this week we will get back to blogging!
 On Saturday we went strawberry picking with some friends!! I took some pictures, ( As in two) I didn't take any other picture because while picking the berries my hands were red and I didn't want to get the camera dirty.
On Sunday, we went to pick up Esther from her camp!!!  It was a nice place, very beautiful! Esther wants to go back, but because this is a volunteer job, she might not be able to do it again because she needs to work. Why does she need to work? To save money for collage! Here are the photos:
                         A random chair on a rock looking out from the Island.
    Isn't the water beautiful? Oh yeah ,I guess the rest of the family looks nice too.

                 Esther with Delilah. Yes, they do name their bowls and freezers and fridges names.
                                         They store the sugars and flours in garbage bins!
This is Samson, he worked a long time ago, now he is broken. ~ Abby ca.K.e

Canada day party on the weekend!

On Saturday, I went to a friend's house who had a pool. We had fun! On Sunday, my family went on a picnic. Remember, Esther is still not here, so it was only dad, mom and me. I climbed a tree!
                                         I'm up in a tree..

                                          Climbing the tree...
                                              I'm down from the tree! We did other stuff, like get stuck in the mud, the mud was so hard to get out of, that we all almost lost our shoes! ~ Abby ca.K.e

Ten Craft ideas to do when your bored

Crafters sometimes get " Crafting block"" then they can't think up of anything to do crafting wise. SO here are ten craft ideas to do!
1. Make a comic with characters wearing costumes you made!
2. Make a card for your grandparents!
3.Paint a picture of a cupcake
4. Learn how to do a craft you have never heard of, like Deco-den, ( Click me To see an example of deco-den!) Polymer clay, ( Click me to lean more about Polymer clay) ect!
5. After learning about those new crafts, try'em out!
6. Cook something healthy like healthy cookies or ice cream. ( Best ice cream recipe on earth, take one banana peel it, chop it up, put it in a container and put it in a freezer, wait.... And wait... Until almost frozen/frozen and then put it in a blender, if it is having trouble blending put a little bit of almond milk or normal milk into it and blend more, then eat it with a spoon! I am addicted to this recipe.)
7. Try to make something out of nature, like pine cones and stick and grass or rocks!
8. Speaking of rocks, paint a rock!
9. Try to make a craft protect inspired by your favorite book, movie  or TV show.
10. Join a craft club. ~ Abby ca.K.e
