Secrets & Scandals: Sneak Peek #1

And it's Light4theLord here today, ready to give a few more secrets away on my newest project that was announced in the Looking Ahead post! Essentially, you're getting a promo photoshoot in here as well, so enjoy.

Allow me to introduce to you one of our stars of this upcoming show. Welcome Elly Cole as she plays the co-starring role of... Her highness...

Princess Jacquelyn Sophania Carales of the fair but torn land of Nuvoria. I have Miss Elizabeth here today for a few questions about her new role - and make sure to ask questions in the comments for the stopmotion interview!
Elizabeth, what do you like best about the character of Jacquelyn? Well, the character herself... absolutely nothing! laughs But I have to admit I absolutely loved dressing up. Her gowns are so insanely fancy - the wardrobe designers have done an amazing job! And the jewelry and hairstyles and everything is just... stunning. Plus, who doesn't like doing tons of photoshoots? hehe... you'll see anot…

Paisley's Guide to Surviving Second Grade V-day - DOTM special

Valentine’s Day is a MESS in 2nd grade!  So I came up with some tips on surviving the worst of times while the horror is being presented to you….

Tip #1-  Your bag

In my class, we get handed out brown paper bags to decorate and put your valentines in.  But the thing about this is that at the end of the day, the bottom just blows up.  
Boom, Kerplooee.
All your precious cards and candy will fall out all over the sidewalk as your walking home from school, and it’s absolutely horrific.  
You need a card from one of your peers.  Preferably a cardstock one, but a paper one will do.  Just fold up a piece of wide ruled paper, and stick about 3 cards in one of the folds to reinforce it.  Then, push it on the bottom of your bag, and you are set!

Tip #2- Candy TIMING

The thing is, there is no way your teacher is going to let 30 something second graders eat 50 something pieces of fun dip.  Absolutely no way.  So the key is timing.
You need to be sneaky as a ninja.  Stuff a small pocket of your backpack FULL of candy.  You need almost 20 pieces in there,  Follow the rules, and when your teacher says you can eat 2 pieces, eat 2 pieces.  Just eat 2 pieces PER minute.  If you explain this to your teacher, she will most likely be a tad angry, but... The candy in your backpack can be consumed at home…

Tip #3-handing out valentines

There is an art to correctly handing out your valentines to your fellow students.
To prevent ridicule from boys and friends who like to tease you, just hand everything out the EXACT same way.
Just grab, smack.  Grab smack.   Grab from the bag, smack on the desk.  Grab, smack!

I hope everyone enjoyed my infinite second grade wisdom, be sure to leave a comment, and I hope you got lots of fun dip and chocolate on Valentine’s day!


  1. I like the idea of reinforcing the bottom of the bag.
