V Neck T-Shirt

To make this awesome shirt just follow these simple steps!

1. Lie your shirt on a flat surface

2. Decide how far away from the collar you want your new neckline, and mark that distance around the edge using a ruler. Connect your marks to make one solid line.

3. Find the middle of your shirt and make a mark where you want the V-neck to come down. Use tailor's chalk or a washable marker

4. Then using sharp scissors*, cut carefully along the line (* if you aren't allowed to use sharp scissors, ask an adult to help you)

5. Trim any rough edges, and you're ready to go!

No Plans for the Summer? Look No Further!!!

Do you love magazines?

Do you want to be on TV?

Are you looking for something fun and different to do this summer?

Do you want to have an impact on Girl Scouts in your council?

If you are entering 10th grade or up, then I have the perfect opportunity for you!

The Marketing and Communications (MarComm) department of GSHCC is now hiring interns for the summer!

As an intern, you would produce our council's fabulous magazine, Hear & Now, which is designed by girls just like you, for girls just like you!

You can work in photography, writing, design, fashion, editing, or interviewing, working with other girls to make Hear & Now just the way you want it.

You can also be on TV!! As an intern you will be trained to be a representative for the council on TV during cookie sales (did you see me on Sacramento & Co.??)

Not only is it a lot of fun, but you get to learn a lot and meet some really great girls from around the council too!

There are 3 sessions, and you can do one, two or all of them:

Session 1: June 14 - July 9, 2010

Session 2: July 12 - August 6, 2010

Session 3: July 26 - August 20, 2010

Applications are due May 17th, click here for more details, and check out pictures from this year's internship.

Good luck, girls!! :D

Make Cool T-shirts

Spring is in the air, which means it's shorts and t-shirt weather, yay!!

Now, if you're like me, you hate the way some t-shirts look: boring and uninteresting. But I have a solution for you! Starting this month I will be posting a new way to modify a regular t-shirt into something snazzy and original that all your friends will be asking about.

Check back soon to see the first design.

Happy Spring everyone!!!

CAMP is Here!!

It's almost that time of the year...when school ends and we have plenty of time to sit and do nothing... and go to Camp Menzies!

This year is going to be a great summer up at camp. It will be full of fun, water fights, s'mores, and lots and lots of songs!

There are loads of different programs focusing on art, the environment, water, the solar system and so much more!! You can also go with your troop, family or with your mom or dad. There are lots of choices, so head on over here to check them out!

And for you older Girl Scouts, don't forget to check out the leadership programs available! Stay at camp longer and have 10 times the fun!!

Maybe I'll see you there?

Leader Appreciation Day

Leader Appreciation Day is April 22, so make sure you do something nice for your leader!

Sing her (or him) a song, make a gift, or check out these great gift ideas in the Girl Scout Shop:

Tote bag to carry all their GS stuff

Wooden picture frame- put a picture of your troop in it before you give it to them.

A keep sake box- have each member of the troop put an object in the box symbolizing or describing a memory from your time as a troop, and put it in the boxd before giving it to your leader.

If you have any other ideas, leave a comment!
