Cinderella's dream

Yesterday, today, and tomorrow Holly is in her high school play. All told she acts in nine performances. She plays the Evil Stepmother in the retelling of Cinderella, titled Cinderella's dream. Basically it's a comedy, with the two stepsisters being played by boys and lots of funny stuff like setting skirts on fire. It's hard for Holly to play her part; she has to yell the entire 2+ hours of the play, and because she is shorter than most of the other actors she has to wear really high stiletto shoes. She has blisters and bloody spots all over her feet, and the first night she yelled herself hoarse. But the play was so good I went to see it again.

The Evil Step-family and Cinderella. Holly's the one in burgundy, playing Lady Nervosa Pigmentosa, also known as the Evil step-witch.

Pumpkin Amigurumi

You can't see it, but the other stepsister just did something stupid. With names like Ecxema and Euphoria what did you expect? Also, I made the pumpkin, the most important prop^^

Tiny Pumpkin Amigurumi

Speaking of crochet pumpkins, I made this for Holly. She can wear it as a necklace or a bracelet charm.


  1. Sounds very enjoyable. My daughters like a book of Cinderella. It's written in Japanese but I bet the content is same.

    1. Probably. Cinderella is a very popular story, especially with little girls^^
