Colored Pencils

I now have an obsession with colored pencils. At first I loved sketching and painting but now I just tried using colored pencils and its amazinnggg. I didn't think you could do so much with colored pencils. You can blend and erase and make gorgeous pieces of artwork. Its like using regular pencils but ten times better because you get all the bright, vibrate colors.

Earring Organizer

So I don't know about you but hate losing my earrings! I lose my earrings all the time and its not like I lose both but I lose one! .... there's not much I can do with just one earring. I did find this craft though on how to make your own organizer. Its pretty easy to make actually and really cute. You pretty much use a frame and foam! How cool is that?

Soooo I have my ups and downs with photoshop. I do think its awesome but it just depends how you use it. For example, I like the fact that I can get rid of my blemishes on my face and I can do cool affects with different colors and textures. What I don't like is when the media takes pictures of celebrities and makes them skinnier, eyes bigger, skin radiant, neck longer, hair longer, legs longer, everything! They completely change the celebrity and thats one of the reasons why girls are so self consious...they feel like they have to look just as good as the people in the magazines and well you tend to realize you can't do that. But there's nothing I can do about that, right? I mean photoshop is fun, just don't use it to show the impossible.

So for my descriptive drawing class we have to draw something crazy and weird. I have to turn myself into a surrealist...Dali or Vladimir Kush. This has never been my style, I have always loved the style but I'm just not that creative. I need ideas, I honestly can't think of anything to draw that is as cool as Dali or Kush's work. Like a lion with a giraffe's neck! Then I thought of something really cool and it happened that Dali already did that, I was thinking a lion with LONG legs like a giraffe but Dali did that with the elephants...booooooo. Well help would be much appreciated..

Getting a Tattoo

I got a tattoo about two months ago. It was a crazy experience! I honestly had no idea what to expect. Im not going to lie it does hurt a bit. I did get mine on my wrist so that is a very sensitive spot since the skin is so thin and the veins are so close...so Im sure somewhere else wouldnt hurt as much. But as long as its meaningful and you really want it then the pain is nothing. The feeling once its done is so awesome! Mine was for my cousin who passed away and actually in a way helped me deal with his death....kind of weird but true. The scary part his when you have to take care of the tattoo. Moisturize it and make sure it peels and scabs. But after a week of scabbing it will never come off! YAY.

Decorate a Christmas Tree

I love decorating the Christmas tree. My brother and I would wear elf hats and our dad would put the lights up on the tree. Then all four of us would start hanging the ornaments. The best part was that they weren’t just ornaments..they all have meaning. Every where we visit we get an ornament. They are just random ornaments that look all the same. They all having meaning. Then every year my brother and I decide who gets to put the star on top of the tree. So if I did it this year, he would do it next year! Now we are a lot older..im 20 and hes 23 soooo we don’t do this anymore but I still love that fact that we did this and that Christmas just makes me happy! Good memories.
