For some time Hazel has been doing a PowerPoint presentation about a group of gods: the Gods Of Peace.  Click on the picture below to view it.  You will need Microsoft PowerPoint to view the show (we tried many different web converters but none of them worked satisfactorily).

This weekend we visited some friends who live beside The Medway in Rochester.  While Leo drew his Horror James series, Hazel decided to draw The Medway (as she had forgotten to take her camera).

This week Hazel got a full-size guitar with all metal strings to replace her old three-quarter-size guitar.  Click the image below to hear here playing a song she created many months ago (at one of her friend Robyn's clubs) on the new instrument.

Hazel & Leo's Comic Adventures
25 October 2007

For the last two months Hazel has been slowly working on an A5-size comic: Hazel & Leo's Comic Adventures.  She only works on it when we go out to a pub or a meal or something: it keeps her occupied in the boring bits.  She finished it today.  It features Leo The Capturer, Princess Hazel and a host of baddies in the five stories then ends with a puzzle page.

Welcome Back
4 August 2007

Daddy has been on a two-week trip to Austin Texas with work.  Hazel and Leo both made welcome cards for him on his return, which he very much appreciated.  Hazel's card features a crashing plane from which daddy is escaping via parachute.

Slower Tempo
21 July 2007

Daddy had not quite realised how many songs Hazel's been generating.  Here are another three, all of a slower tempo.  We will update this entry with song sheets later.

More Songs
2 July 2007

Hazel has written four songs since we last updated this page.  Here they are behind their original composition-sheet (possibly a little out of date with respect to the words sung in each case).  Click on a song sheet to hear a recording of the song.  Hazel got to perform Unlucky in her year five school concert.

Father's Day
17 June 2007

Hazel made daddy a rather nice game of Wii tennis for Father's Day.  On the one side of the TV it shows the old daddy (with beard and glasses) and, on the other side of the TV, in front of the couch, the new-look daddy (no beard, no glasses, stripy shirt).  A most poetic representation.

Midnight Murder
31 March 2007

Working with friends Kaelan and Ashwyn Spicer, Hazel has set up Meades & Spicer Productions.  Together they have produced three episodes of Midnight Murder.  Each episode is about one minute long and they are very much what it says on the tin.  Click on the logo below to view them

Circle Of Life
10 March 2007

Hazel has a plan for a song called Circle Of Life.  So far it's just a piano tune, but she plans to add words (to be sung with Charlotte) and a guitar accompaniment.  Here's just the tune for now.

Camping In The Dark
9 March 2007

Hazel has begun creating small (5 cm by 3 cm),  rather intricate picture books with various of her friends.  They share the creation of the book, taking it home on alternate days with each person adding a page or two.  She has completed her first with Charlotte and continues to create books with Lucy and Robyn. Charlotte and Hazel have spent just under 4 months working on this tome, so it has also become a little battered in the process.  It is about a girl who gets lost in the woods while camping in the dark after losing her map.  Click on the image below for the complete story.

Puppy Power, The Movie
21 February 2007

Following-on from the hit TV series Puppy Power, Hazel has made her first full length Puppy Power film.  It's just under 19 minutes long, so not for the faint hearted.  Click on the picture below if you'd like to see it.

Puppy Power - The Movie

12 February 2007

Hazel was inspired by the brochures we had used in Disney World and a session at school on brochure design.  She decided to make a brochure of her own for Horrorville, all foldable and everything.

28 January 2007

Hazel has been accumulating songs over the last several months, three of which we thought worth publishing here.  The first uses the words of Sarah's Love Poem, the others are various of Hazel's earlier poems set to music.
