Hi, my name

Chatterbox: In This Month's Issue

Hi, my name

Hi, my name is Julia!
I am new to Chatterbox.

I am in 6th grade and I love reading books. My favorite hobby is to make dollhouses. I made a large Victorian dollhouse out of wood boxes. I made all of the furniture out of wood and I am forever stepping on the scraps that I drop on the floor while I glue the furniture together!

My favorite subject at school is Language? History? Art? It's really hard to choose!

I hope spring FINALLY comes. There are a lot of early crocuses around where I live. They are purple and they are so pretty!

I love Cricket magazine! I look forward to it every time that it comes in the mail! I got a subscription as a Christmas present.


Welcome, Julia. We're pleased to meet you.

Hi Julia and welcome to the Chatterbox! I'm Leo and it's wonderful to meet you. 

It's insanely cool that you build dollhouses. That's so awesome. I'm also really excited for spring because there are crocuses outside my house too. 

I'm looking forward to seeing you around the Chatterbox.

Hi Julia! My name is Eulalia, and I have a friend named Julia who is also eleven! Here is the link to the Ultimate Guide to the CB, which explains a lot. I can't wait to see you around!

Hello and welcome to the CB, Julia! The Ultimate Guide that Star Princess linked can be really useful for new CBers, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask; we don't bite. :)

Oop, wait, I just saw that the link Star Princess shared is to the old ultimate guide. The new one can be found here: http://www.cricketmagkids.com/chatterbox/chirpatcricket/node/443573

They have much of the same information, but I'd like to think the new one is easier to understand (then again, I did make it, so I may be biased lol)

Hi Julia!

Nice to meet you! I'm pangolin. I'm in sixth grade too. It's really cool that you make dollhouses! I'm new to the CB too and it's pretty confusing at first. Reading the Ultimate Guides really helps; check out the ones Star Princess and Kitten linked. 

See you around!

P.S. My CAPTCHA (that's the little spam box at the bottom of the page when you submit a post that checks that you're human) named Knight says "yneon". Why neon? I don't know, Knight.

Hey Julia! I'm Princess Juniper AKA Juni! I'm ten and in fourth grade! Some people linked the ultimate guide which is good! (Our NaNowrimo young writers program classroom was shut down so don't try the code for that) I don't bite as Kitten said so feel free to ask questions! I am fairly new though. I joined November 11 2020. I would love love love to see a picture of you dollhouse! Fact about me: I am obsessed with Percy Jackson and Heroes of olympus so I make weird references a lot. I am full of dam schist. That was a perfect example. @Admins google dam schist Rick Riordan I promise I'm not swearing

Hi Princess Juniper!

I make a lot of references to books I read, too!

A lot of people in my class like Percy Jackson, too. I have always wanted to check the series out!

Hi Julia, and welcome to the CB! I'm also in 6th grade and looking forward to spring (and seeing a few flowers). I like to read, like you, draw, and write. I have a weird obsession with tiny things, so it's so amazing that you make dollhouses! Hope to see you around!
