The Power of Positive Thinking & Big Hugs!

Thursday, October 31, 2013

Hey all you Ghouls and Goblins! Hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween! 

This post is going to be for all you people out there who may be having a rough time in their life at the moment. Perhaps you’re feeling like bad luck has been making too many appearances in your life, perhaps bad news has come your way, perhaps you’re feeling a lack of motivation or inspiration or perhaps you’re just feeling blue and aren’t quite sure why. Well, I’m here to give you a great big virtual hug and tell you better times will come your way! ;) The main thing is to just keep positive; don’t let negativity into your brain and if it tries to creep in there without you noticing, just shove it away. As soon as you notice your brain taking you in that direction, just say “NO! I will not let myself think that way… I can’t!”, and try to set your thinking on something else! It does take a lot of practice; truthfully, it won’t be easy at first. But, I know you can do it and it will get easier! I believe in you! :) Not only will great things start to happen for you, but you’ll start to feel better, happier and liberated from all that negativity. 

Halloween, Zombies & Decorated Glass Results

Thursday, October 24, 2013

Mwaahaahaa!! Hello all my likers, followers, watchers, newcomers… and anyone else who I may have forgotten! I’ve broken from my schedule of videos every second week to bring you this extra special post! In preparation for Halloween I’ve done a costume tutorial! Yay! I’m breaking away from the typical girlie costumes I normally do, and doing a gross, scabby, Zombie-Hobo instead. Sssexy!

Crafty Tutorial - Decorative Vase

Friday, October 18, 2013

Hey, Y’all!!

So, my second video went alright. I'm still working on getting the lighting right and I did have to re-record the end part of my video (you’ll notice I’m dressed different at the end, well that’s why) because I forgot to turn the TV off and you can hear it in the background which can be quite distracting, and I couldn’t have that. ;)

For this tutorial I decided to show you all how to create a nice decorative vase from an existing plain ol’, clear glass vase. It’s sort of like a decoupage technique only there aren’t as many layers of varnish or paper. What you’re going to do is use decorative napkins to create a neat sort of mosaic frosted glass look. It’s really neat! This is something I learned how to do about…wow, 12 years ago. Hopefully you’ll all enjoy it and want to try to create a masterpiece of your own! :)

My Art Room, Décor Ideas & Thanksgiving

Thursday, October 10, 2013

Hey, Everybody!!! It’s Thursday, again, and today I've decided to blog about my new Art Room to be! We're moving to a new place (since our landlord has offered our current place to his sister effective next month). Due to the fact we'd rather not run into the possibility of moving when it's snowing (I've experienced it several times in the past...not fun!), we're moving at the end of this month aaannnnddd with this move we decided to get a place with 2 bedrooms so that I can have my own space rather than my drawing table and all my art supplies being set up in the living room area. Now that I'll have that, I can decorate it to my heart's content and to my liking! Yay!! I am so excited about this!!
So, this week, I visited Target to look at some of the décor pieces they have that I might like. I did find a couple things I like that fit within my vision of my art room. I have found a few sample photos online that show the style that I am going for but I am unable to post other people’s photos on my blog due to copyright issues. If you’d like to see a few examples I have included some links to those sites which, I think, so be ok. What I am thinking is a vintage looking color combination like this:

I’ll add a modern touch to it by having an animal print piece somewhere. I do have a Zebra print bean bag seat that I’ll probably stick in the corner. But just one piece of animal print because too much pattern can be overwhelming in such a small space. I also love the look of vases with big, poufy flowers.

First Video - Messy Side Bun & Beautiful Aurora

Friday, October 4, 2013

Hello again, Everyone! :D Soooo today I am really excited because I’ve got 2 things to blog about. First, my video. Well, the whole thing, from beginning to end, was an experience. Ha Ha. Over the time it took me to set everything up I knocked over my background panels several times and knocked over one floor lamp, spilled 2 different drinks and cleared anything that was on my coffee table. :) But, it’s all in the fun of doing something for the first time. I learned a lot so I can do it better and more efficient next time.

So for this video, I decided to do a hairstyle tutorial. I’ve had a lot of strangers compliment this hairstyle and ask how I’ve done it which was the inspiration for starting my blog, and so, it’s only fitting for my first video. But, if you’re following my blog and you’re not into hair and makeup and maybe more interested in Art/Design/Crafts rather than beauty tutorials, don’t worry, there will be plenty of those in the future as well and, in fact, I plan on having something more crafty for my next video. It’s all about being creative here and I like to express that in many ways! ;)
