Hello everyone, here I am again bringing you another post because of course I have to write when the weather's like this! (it's so gorgeous out!) and I'm all fall leaves and brisk breeze XD 

Yep the fall is quite obvious right now, and as I'm feeling particularly nice right now I've decided to follow the string of bloggers and write a "Currently" post :) kind of like what Kelli Taylor of Blimey Cow does, so without further ado!


Listening to: 
Lost and Found by Tessa Rose Jackson 

The eighth book of the Rangers Apprentice series

About stories and art options (since me and Samantha are going to do the knight fighting a dragon drawing I need to figure out the movements)

The quietness of having the house to myself 

For sisters to get back (I miss the noise now) 

Why the dogs haven't been going crazy (because they always go crazy when Liz and Ani are gone)

Wanting to Read:
Crazy Busy, Wordsmithy

Pumpkin spiced latte's and pies 

Crazy adventurous stuff! (my dreams are very enjoyable of late)

My lovely friends who have been so encouraging in their comments :) (thanks guys)

Sweaters, pants, and carmel colored boots boots.

Annnnd that's all for now be assured I have more interesting posts coming later I think I need more poetry, stories, and creativity on here so let's see if it can be acquired shall we?

More Updates :)

Hey Guys, here I am with more updates for you :) 
these will be abstract updates meaning they'll be small, random and fun for me to write :) 

We recently watched Chitty Bang Bang which is one of my all time favorite movies movies and one I'd hadn't seen since I was 10 and that was sooo long ago *sigh* memories, Me and Liz had fun reminiscing about our favorite parts and were surprised to find that we shared a favorite among the songs, the song being, "Doll on a Music Box" "scene posted below"

Yesterday I ordered my 'iPod Touch, after some searching my brother recommended a very nice refurbished one :) thanks Josh. 

And also yesterday I finished my entry to me and Samantha's latest challenge :) 
we were doing Mermaids next is elves I believe (The Lord of the Rings Kind) 
(Guys if you have a challenge for me and Samantha to do next please put it in comments and I'll post both mine and hers on here and also on The Artistic Writer, noting who challenged us)

I used another of Mark Crilley's tutorial videos to do this mermaid and than personalized her :) 

And today I was designing the wallpaper for my iPod :) 

I had a lot of fun I made a bunch of others but I figured I'd just show one :) 
(I can make you guys some too if you want) 

Aaaand here's a special Challies post that got me thinking about how much I 'Humblebrag'

That's all guys please drop me a comment and let me know what you think and how you've all been doing it's been awhile since I had a good chat with you guys :)

Yay Updates!

(picture by me)

Nothing can be said now that hasn't been said or written or before and so I’ll try to change the way I approach this particular piece of typed singularity.

BUT let me just say….Hey, how you doing?

Translation: What can I say about not posting in a really long time that other bloggers haven’t already said so I guess I’ll just say something totally unrelated, How are you?

  That’s right it’s me, I’m back and hopefully to stay for awhile.

So you guys remember how this Summer all throughout this very day I've been saying that the reason for my not writing has to do with the fact that I've either been busy or been uninspired because of not being able to leave the house very much because of house renovations and stuff. Well I'm happy to say that today we finally finished applying the primer and the first coat of paint to the house! Though we might apply the second coat to the front of the house this year...the rest of the painting should be left until sometime next Spring or that means for now we can have a time of rest and somewhat normality :) I'm still happy about all of this upgrading and such I'm just not so ecstatic about all the time it's taken to complete these long do renovations it really felt like we were moving not just fixing up some things... so much more than just painting…um…so yeah we’re done and I can no longer bore you with updates on progress so I’ll just end work updates here and save you the annoyingness of having to deal with more of my rather uneventful Summer…don’t get me wrong we had a lot of great things happening and I’ll love this Summer forever I just well yeah you get the picture.

(the house after painting. It still has some green tape on it but doesn't it look nice)
(picture also by me)

To paint our home, we did endeavor 
Though it did seem like forever
We kept hard at it until it was done
Till the completion was won 
(poem requested by my dad)

So yesterday after we’d finished we went out to eat and celebrated our completion of the long “Never Ending Adventure” as I called it.
We were happy it was done but….then it started to rain and paint can’t dry when it’s raining we could only hope that the paint had, had enough time to dry before the rain came…and today we found out that we still had more days of endless rain coming...we were worried it would never have a chance to dry if it hadn't had enough time…but then while we were worrying I happened to notice I was a little hungry so I picked up a fortune cookie from the night before that was lying close by, I cracked it open and pulled out the little slip of paper it read, “The job is well done.” If ever there was a time we needed to hear that it was then…and wow I showed mom and she was just all smiles, thanking God for this strange way of letting us know it was okay we didn't have to worry, my stomach was in knots and was just thanking God over and over again sooo happy…cause you know how amazing it feels when you know God’s spoken two you I've only felt that a few times is my life and it’s so special! :D

Now to less amazing topics, you guys who follow The Artistic Writer know I’ve been drawing a lot recently in fact I’ve been doing a back to back series of Challenging with my friend Samantha…who might I add is Awesome!
And as a result I’ve been pumping more and more creativeness into my drawings…yes this distracts from my writings but I hope with time I’ll be able to refuel that little part of my life that’s still running on empty haha yes I’m writing despite a severe case of writers block, I feel like lately my life has been taking a different turn art is becoming more and more my favorite hobby and it’s very distracting though my character creations do help replenish idea’s for my already in progress stories…even so please bare with me I don’t usually have writers block this bad…please help if you can, maybe provide some idea’s or something how do you guys work with this I keep writing but yeah, it isn’t going so well.

Schools been fine but sleeping hasn’t, I stay up waaaaaay to late. I know I need to remedy that and I have been working on it but still if you guys could please pray I would appreciate it a lot, I’m really moody when I don’t get enough sleep and as a result I’m rude to my sisters and parents and I hate it, also it doesn’t help with school. I’m starting to worry about that….I really care about how much I pay attention and learn I want to take things in, I’m going to need to remember these things if I ever want to be a writer or even to just make it through day to day life so please pray for that too, pray that I am a diligent scholar and take in what I learn J right now I’m enjoying it but I want to be able to remember too.

Sooooo thanks for reading J

(Awesome Pic by Liz) 

I'll stand there,
No place else is nowhere,
I'll retreat into my mind
I want to see what I'll find 

And I'd like to sit in my thinking spot
To ponder, why else, why not?

I'd like to cling to memories 
Reclaim my imagination 
And write into my world of stories 

And I'd like to sit in my thinking spot
To ponder, why else, why not?

I'd like to color my minds creations
To add to the formations 
Build upon a dream, higher and higher
Creating something to inspire 

I want to plant them so they grow,
Into something pretty I can show
I'll frame them with little careful thoughts
And tie it with a bow of my best story plots

And I'd like to sit in my thinking spot
To ponder, why else, why not?

Yes I had to retreat to the land of nowhere and scrounge around till I found this for you guys, see what I do for you...haha just kidding but I had a small spurt of inspiration which was discouraged when I had to struggle for rhymes...which happened three times...but I had fun with it anyways...but I thought you guys should know the best and most natural parts of the poem is the first three stanza's :)

Tirz - Music

Hey guys today we have some poetry from my friend a young poet, Tirz. She's going to send me some of her poems and I'm going to post them on here for her :) 

What is this sound,
That I have found?
This beautiful melody,
Of perfect harmony.
It is music!

Whether a deep drum,
Or a calm harp strum.
Whether a bird that sings,
Or violin strings.
It is music!

What is this the stars sing all day,
And the whales hum in the ocean bay.
Perhaps a huge orchestra?
Something with almost no flaw.
It is music!

All the music in the world is like a symphony.
I could listen to it for an eternity.
It can pull you into a musical dream,
And like a whole new world it will seem.
It is music!

It can go up and down.
It can make you smile and frown
It can go on and on and on,
And never seem to be gone.
It is music!

There are thousands of tunes.
Every time music starts, it blooms.
It even comes from the crickets that chirp.
Whatever the  happy sound is, it gives us a jolly, new perk.
It is music!

It is merry and bright.
Sometimes it seems to shed a kind and warm light.
It cheers us up lots of times,
With it's cheery chimes.
It is music!

I love to listen to it,
Whether I lay or sit.
It can be peaceful.
It can be graceful.
It is music!

You know you have to write when...

Stories keep building up inside your head until their spilling out
Rhymes start popping into your speech unbidden 
You start talking to yourself and/or your story characters 
Thinking spots become your favorite place 

{Anyone else experiencing these symptoms?}
