Thunder Storm

The sound sent me
Flying from my skin

The booming of
A thousand mad

Men or ELEPHANTS
Stampeding across

The mountainside
I run inside

From the unknown
Safely to hide

Then the shock hits
All I can do is twitch

The smell is awful
As it begins to burn

The clouds wash me
With their tears

But there’s no savior
For my deafened ears

I hope you all are having a marvelous day. I love fall thunderstorms. Do you enjoy a good thunderstorm???

Hello my lovely friends. Enjoy today’s poem and illustration.

Little Brother

I am older than you
There’s nothing you can do
To change this fact
Besides maybe a fatal act…
But you never would
My ideas are far too good
Like that time we
Were making up a story
About ninja spies
With beautiful butterflies
Who become heroes
Because they invented bows…
Maybe I do need
Your help— my imagination, indeed…
I’m the seer of stars
And you’re the inventor of cars
I love you
I always shall, nothing you do
Will ever change that!

I hope you having a wonderful day. Don’t forget to love your brother today. [=

#19 NaPoWriMo, Washing…

Hello my lovely friends. Today’s challenge is to write a didactic. (A how to poem.) Upon reading this I knew my subject immediately. Enjoy.

Washing

When you are shopping.
Look closely at tags.
For when you’re washing,
You might need mesh bags.

It’s wiser to look,
And not need to know…
Than to be mistook,
Overcome with woe.

Because you didn’t read,
The washing info.
One simple wise deed,
Helping you to grow.

Never shrinking
The $70 dollar dress.
An act of thinking,
Equals no big mess.

I hope you are having a wonderful day. Keep smiling, awesome sauce!!!

Questions from Owly

1. Who is your biggest role model?

My parents. Their are the strongest people I know. They have gone through things that would have broken me and yet somehow they are stronger for it. If I stop long enough to think about it… my brain just becomes overwhelmingly awed. They are the best parents ever!!! I love my family. ❤

2. Favorite Author?

Okay so this may seem odd. My favorite author isn’t the author of my top 5 favorite books. I know strange. My favorite author is Ally Carter. She is amazing. Every time I read one of her books it’s like being able to go back into my childhood. (Gallagher Girl series. It’s for middle grade, around 11-13 and up. Subjects include spies, boarding school, all girls academy, coming of age, honor, sisterhood, teamwork. Etc.) But honestly if I keep thinking about this question I’m going to have like 20 author names listed here. Oooh a close second is Anne Blankman. I love her Prisoner of night and Fog series. (More mature books just fyi like 15 and up. Subjects include mental illness, Hitler, WW2, war, spies, journalism etc.)

3. What is your favorite song?


I have no earthly idea… IT IS SO HARD TO CHOOSE ONLY ONE!!! If I could only sing one song for the rest of my life I would choose It is well by Philip P. Bliss… but if we are talking the song that’s my jam right now… Pocketful of poetry by Mindy Gledhill. I love both of these songs. I’m not choosing one favorite… I just can’t… *softly plays Kiss the rain by Yiruma* I simple can’t choose one song… _-_

4. Favorite Candy?

Cotton candy. I also like chocolate and marshmallows but right now cotton candy is my favorite. ❤

5. If you had to choose only 5 books you could read for the rest of your life, which would they be? (hard…I know)


You really do like to ask hard questions!!! For the rest of my life…? The Bible (KJV), The magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis, The Book thief by Markus Zusak, Our Town by Thronton Wilder and The invisible heart by Russell Roberts. Dude that was so hard!!! I’m already not someone who likes to read books more than once… Only 5 books for the rest of my life?!?!? These are solid choices that I think will carry me all the way until the end of my life. ^_^

6. Favorite animal?


I feel as though I have already kinda answer this question but Frogs are my favorite. ^_^ They are so cute!!! Sadly I was never allowed to have a dolphin or shark pet growing up… =_[ So frogs became my favorite. (I have had a few pet frogs over the years of my life. They are awesome!!!)

7. Pizza or Ice cream?


Well (all the hate is about to come) I don’t really like either. Part of it is I am gluten free and dairy free. And part of it is I am a bit of a picky eater. I prefer to eat lots of different fruits and veggies. So… Ice cream I guess. There are actually quite a few really good dairy free ice creams. =]

8. Where do you wish you could live?


LONDON ENGLAND!!! I would love to live there it’s so beautiful!!! I would love to be a makeup artist in London. And I would love to photograph all over the whole city!!! I’m dying to be able to go!!!

9. Fiction or Non-Fiction? Why?


I like both but I love realistic fiction. It’s so cool to imagine what the world could be or what we could do in the world. *sigh* But I also love nonfiction. I really enjoy business books, self help books and biographies.

10. Book you recommend to anyone?


Hahaha I have been recommending books left and right all through this post!!! 😉 But a book for all. A few come to mind but the one book (other than the bible) I would recommend to anyone is Oh, the places you’ll go by Dr. Seuss. Everyone should read that book!!! Young, old, boy or girl!!!

Day 2…

Hello again my lovely friends. I hope you are having a wonderful day! I hope you all find today’s quote as inspiring as I have. ❤

 

Confidence is the best makeup a woman can wear. ~Unknown

Confidence is truly the key to beauty. If you don’t like what you’re wearing then why are you wearing it? Life is too short to dress for other people. They don’t pay for your clothing or makeup, so why do they get a say in what you wear? Dress in appropriate attire but still dress like yourself.

 

Thank you, my lovely readers! ❤ I hope you are all having a wonderful day full of laughter and joy. Keep working that confidence!!! 😉

Until we meet again,

Socks

Today’s inspiration comes from my sock draw. Yes you read that right. It’s Saturday so I thought it would be fitting to write something more funny and laid back!

My Socks

My socks come from all over the world.
I have socks from China, Italy and my home land.
I hate walking around in sock on sand!
I have socks that will blind you.
And I have a black pair or two.
I have mismatch socks,
I have socks with minion eyes.
I still want those socks with the little fox!
I have socks with little bowties.
I have socks covered in hearts,
And socks with musical parts.
I wish I had a sock that glowed in the dark!
Or maybe ones from hallmark!
But I have socks will bells,
And none from jail cells!
I have girly socks, silly socks,
I have lots and lots of socks!
I love my socks that keep my feet warm!
Fluffy socks, cozy socks, little toe socks!
Those little unsung hero’s Socks,
Keeping my feet dye in the rain storm!

Now I’m curious what kind of socks you have in jail cells!!! ^_^ Anyway I hope you enjoyed the poem and thank you so much for reading. Have a wonderful Saturday. I’ll see you tomorrow with another post!

Revamp an old hat DIY

Today I would like to share a DIY. Let’s get started!!!

You’ll need.

  • An old hat that needs a facelift.
  • Fabric paint of your choice. (I used black and red.)
  • Paint brushes.
  • A paper plate or palette.
  • Mod podge.
  • Glitter.
  •  Paper cup. (I used an old egg carton.)
Start DIY

  1. Start by getting all your supplies together.
  2. Paint the front of the hat.

  4. Paint the brim of the hat.
  5. Let it dry.

    Before glitter

  6. Mix the mod podge and glitter. (I used 1/3 glitter to 2/3 mod podge but if you want more or less glitter you can modify this accordingly.)
  7. Paint hat with glitter mixture.
  8. Let it dry. (Mod podge takes longer to dry, around two hours or so.)
  9. Paint the hat with a coat of plain mod podge to seal in the glitter. (You can skip this step but you may end up leaving glitter behind without this coat.)
  10. Let it dry over night.
  11. Style and wear the hat!!!
