The Sweetest Little Stranger


Happy hot sticky Thursday!
This picture is very special to me. It might look quite random to be on my blog, but there's more to it. She is not my grandma, aunt or even a family friend. This little lady is Romie. I meet her at the bus stop at school at the beginning of the year. It was one of the days that i decided that i was going to finally take pictures of my 100 people.

As we started talking she was the sweetest thing, and she was dressed super awesome. She had on a blue jump suit on with leopard sunglasses and a flowered purse. When I asked her if i could take a picture of her she just smiled and asked if i was an art student and that she would love to. Before i left she gave me her address and phone number and asked if i would be willing to send it to her.

It was one of the greatest experience. Not just because she was a lovely person, but also i finally asked someone if i could take there picture. That is huge for me. I usually don't even talk to anyone, because i'm afraid i will look dumb. This was insane and huge for me!

Have you ever meet a sweet stranger?

Moon hunting

On Sunday evening the moon was suppose to make her appearance as the biggest and brightest out of the year. A friend and i were supper excited, so we thought we would go on a mission and go out and admire all her glory. In the beginning the plan was go to the country so we can see it better. But low and behold and hour latter we were at a place in the mountains called Three Rivers. It was so beautiful up there, and the weather was great. We got there about 8 and waited for the moons dramatic arrival at about 9. It was so incredible. As is came behind the mountains it looked as thought they were on fire. It was the biggest and brightest i have ever see it. It was such a great experience to be able to just throw everything down and just look up at the sky and admire all God made. Its crazy!

Bug jewelry

About a year ago i found a really big wasp nest, and it still had wasps in it about to hatch. So i wanted to make jewelry out of them. Finally after a year i took a swing at resigning bugs, and i have fell head over heels. It is the funnest thing, and the out come is remarkable. I just borrowed a friends dremel, so these bad boys are going to make beautiful jewelry.
If you have been thing about using resign, I say go for it you will not be disappointed. And the awesome things is that you can put anything into it.

100th Post

Hallelujah! I finally made it to my 100th post! I am over the moon right now. It might sound small because some people have blogs that create 100 post in 2 months, but this is such a celebration for me. I'm pretty sure i would have been on a lot more post then 100, but last year i decided that i wanted to start fresh so i deleted a lot of post. I remember deleting them and feeling so heart broken after about 10, and felt that i was trying to delete days. Even if they weren't perfect they were mine.

When I started my blog in 2010 i went into it thinking that i wanted to make friends and show people my d.i.y's and the way i dress. But after hours of reading blogs i wanted to do i the way these "successful bloggers" were doing it. I felt discouraged and thought i had to be a certain type of blogger. I struggled with that for a while. But after years of blogging, even if i didn't feel worthy and some of my stuff wasn't perfect, I grew and figured out that i was able to say what i wanted to say and be because this is my space.

I'm celebrating the years that changed me, growth, not giving up, and finally doing things how i want to!

Here are some of my favorite post that I've  done.

1. Purple Dance moves - outfit
2. Woods and mountain - adventures
3. Potting necklace - D.I.Y
4. 40 before 20
5. Road Trip - 40 before 20
6. 12 random things - Daily life
7. art journal - creative living
8. 52 portraits 

Thanks for reading, and here's to celebrating every post!

Animal filled cups

01 02 03 04 05

Happy Tuesday!
One of my assignments for my ceramic class was to choose a set of things such as cups or something figurative. Basically something that you wanted to focus on for the rest of the semester. At this point of the semester i wasn't great at either, but i knew i liked both. So seen cups on mod-cloth and on other places where they had mugs with little critters in them. I thought i would take a stab at it and i went for it.

I made the cup on the wheel, and sculpted the little critters. The plates i made last minute just cause i had extra clay, and i just used slabs of clay. The glazes i used on the cups was some from school, just a white, and the blue glaze called red rum. It is amazing because you can either get a red or a pretty blue or some times spots of purple. But when you put it into an electric kiln you get this. The animals and the plates have different under glazes on them, and sprayed with a clear glaze.

I'm over the moon with how they came out. My favorite would have to be the giraffe and the bunny. They were the ones i put the most detail and loved on them the longest.
