Hazel spent some time drawing a decorative vase at Christmas and wanted it displayed here.
Hazel has been busy making things for Christmas presents. She made Leo a comic: The Best Of Leo. It came with a free gift, a bubble grenade.
She made mummy a Cyberpet (made in tech at school). When you press the button it plays a tune and the eyes light up alternately.
And finally, she made daddy a clay box of aboriginal design (in her school art class).
Here's another song: "Why?" Hazel is still using the pre-loaded sounds with her voice and lyrics. We fancy this is more of a Kate Bush sort of style.
Hazel has spent a day playing with Magix Music Maker. She's only got the pre-loaded sounds and her voice/lyrics in this experiment. Next to get her guitar and piano on-board...
Hazel's presents for mummy's birthday this year had a vampire theme. First there was a Morph with fangs and a cloak...
...then a necklace of fire and garlic with a gold chain (mummy had wanted a chunky (but not too chunky) gold necklace with a red pendant for a while)...
...and finally a leaflet (written in crayon and scrap paper while we were away in Germany) describing how to use the vampire slaying necklace.
Hazel doodled a quite complicated picture in her notebook at the pub this evening. She calls it Midnight Owl. The writing is mirror writing, it's not a fault in the scanning.
Knowing of his recent problems with multiple hard disk failures, Hazel decided to give daddy the answer to all his problems for his birthday: the perfect hard disk. It comes with a complete and very professional sales brochure and it is not only shiny but made of Strongonium with protective luminous stickers (see the brochure to understand why these are necessary).
Hazel and Leo have made their next film, Strictly Ballcox.
started after Hazel found an interesting tango tune on the piano.
The plot: Leo and Hazel are on a posh Strictly Ballroom show and are performing their special dance but Hazel gets really annoyed with Leo as he's spitting out the special rose they are meant to use; Hazel flounces off. She finds a ballcock and returns with it, then they do the dancing they enjoy instead, which ends up with Hazel attempting to balance a rose on Leo, him pushing it away, then Hazel attacking him with it at the end in annoyance. The judges, unsurprisingly, think this is all rubbish. The End.

Hazel and Leo made "costumes" out of old cardboard boxes today. Hazel chose to be Candice from Phineas & Ferb.
Hazel decided on a new project on Monday: modelling the downstairs of our house. She found a large cardboard box and spent the day completing the model in smaller cardboard boxes that Alice has always saved for this sort of thing. I recognised the model immediately, though Hazel says she has yet to put in many of the finishing touches. Here is a fuzzy video tour of the model; note the lovingly constructed toilet seat (one of the finishing touches are the walls surrounding the toilet, left off for the moment so that she can move around the model more easily).
Hazel did a cartoon of daddy as a superhero named Mr Electrician for Father's Day. You need to bear in mind when reading it that mice and rats are the same thing.
Hazel and Leo spent Friday and Saturday making a film. It's called Boomerang Gun (modified from "Dagger" 'cos we couldn't find a dagger). It's their first film with a proper go at editing and a sound track made up by both mummy and Hazel this morning. Click on the YouTube link below to see it.
Hazel got bored again and this time sketched the lounge.
Hazel and Leo have been watching lots of Red Dwarf this holiday. While watching Hazel has occupied herself with Red Dwarf and psychedelic doodles, each covering an entire sheet of A4 paper.
Hazel has composed her first piece for the piano. Entitled First Sight, it's also her first love song. Click on the triangle in the middle of the image below to hear it. The style is a mixture of Alanis Morissette and Adele.
Hazel decided to make a comic strip for Mother's Day. It took her most of yesterday to draw it. Here it is.
While at the deli yesterday Hazel and Leo drew pictures of each other in a tiny notebook Hazel carries with her.
Hazel was given a butterfly-shaped notebook a little while ago and has been slowly filling if full of colourful butterflies.
During half term week Hazel went to an event at the local museum themed around Time. There she made both a normal(ish) clock and a grandfather clock with mouse.
