Most of the time when people say Hawaii, I think of red Hibiscus'. In fact, I think that it is my favorite flower. This summer when my family went to Hawaii, Mom and my Grandma both said," The hibiscus is so pretty, Dana." Then they would take one that fell onto the ground and put it on the hat or in the hair. I now like hibiscus' because they remind me of Hawaii.
Before I was born, my Mom and Dad climbed this mountain. It was called Mount Dana. My Mom and Dad were thinking of a name for me at the time, and then my Mom suggested to my Dad to name me after this mountain. And then after I was born, they named me Dana.
This Darth Vader is made out of origami paper. this is just one of the many possible creations that can be used with paper. When I was around 4 years old, my uncle bought some origami paper and some instruction books. And soon I became obsessed with it to the point I was doing it in class.
Lucky Stars: To me, I think that these don't count as origami because they use strips of paper, not sheets of paper. It all one day in Hong Kong because we were visiting my grand ma and grand pa. Then in a store, I saw these strips of paper. I asked my mom on what the strips of paper were for. She said," These strips of paper are for making luck stars, Dana." So we bought some of the paper strips, and I followed the instructions on the back of the package. Soon I was a master at it, and I made jars' worth of lucky stars.
This creation uses wool, and if you get the correct shape, you can make something like the octopus above. (That is, if you don't stab your fingers- people actually use real needles.) It all started at a Talbot toy land in San Mateo where I saw a station where there was a lady point something that looked like felt. Mom and I both went to the station, and we both made 2 little bunnies, although mine looked like a ball of dust. Mom enjoyed it, so she said," Isn't this fun? Dana, why don't we get a box and do some at home?" I agreed, but I haven't been doing it lately.
