QUESTIONS:

What’s the closest thing you’ve experienced to real magic?

I honestly, this is going to sound SO lame. I think seeing baby animals, any kind honestly, is magical. Even spiders and reptiles…Except for maggots. Baby animals are so magical. I could watch them for hours. I was actually nearly late for work the other day because as I walked to to work, I stopped and filmed some new baby duckling.

 

Who is the messiest person you know? And why? 

Honestly? It’d have to be between my partner and myself. I know, it’s terrible! We are actually getting better. That’s mainly because though the cat is sick, so we don’t want to leave him in a messy house all day. With it being so warm lately too, it’s not fair to leave him in a stinky warm house. My partner would probably say it’s me, but it’s both of us really.


If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask?

Is there a way to stop people from believing and supporting Donald Trump?


What benefits does art provide society? Does art hurt society in any way?

I think it just depends on the Art and the Society, it’s trying to provide. Take the Covington Boys situation. You have young teenagers who are wearing red hats that have no healing proprieties what so ever. Thinking that somehow Nathan Phillips banging a drum is supposed to be him intimidating them? Yet everyone who knows, knows that Phillips was banging a healing drum and chanting a healing chant. It’s the same situation with Art. The people who get it, will get it and there will always be those that don’t and those that do.


What’s something positive you’d like to share?  Can be a smile, a joke, or music..anything that gave you a lift this week!

Honestly, it’s been the support of the others who hate Trump as much as we all seem too,lol…This week has seemingly been particularly rough.

QUESTIONS FOR THIS WEEK:

Name two books that have influenced you and share how.  (Credit for this question goes to Teresa of The Haunted Wordsmith.   She asked for TEN books, in her challenge, so the SYW folks got off a bit easy..) 

The first one that kept popping into my head “Playing Beatie Bow“. It’s a very famous Australian book, so I wouldn’t be surprised if most of my readers have not heard about it. It inspired me to use my imagination more. At the same time I was reading the book, I was going through a similar situation, so to be able to escape to another time. There was just a great escape to it.

The other book is, pretty much, all of the Tolkien books. For extremely similar reasons. Funny how neither of the books that have influenced me are about now,lol


In your opinion, where is the line between art and not art? 

Beyonce – Art … Kim Kardashian – Not art…Hahahahaha


Trivia for Halloween:   What item is banned only during Halloween from 12am October 31st to 12pm November 1st in Hollywood California?   (I know the answer, but I do not have any idea WHY)..c’mon…hazard a guess!  

Oh wow, as an Australian, I literally cannot think of anything. Trying to think of what might be a possibility. Since you said “Hazard”….The only thing I can think of is a fire extinguisher, but why would they ban that? I’m sure that would be illegal. Is it the sale of toilet paper?


What is something that really annoys you but doesn’t bother most people? 

I am not actually sure. A year or so ago I might have had an answer for this, but in the last year. I have been more and more surrounded by people who think similarly to myself. I honestly just can’t think of anything.


Instead of our usual gratitude question, I’m posing this one for this week:

What or who in your life brings you the most joy?

This is so funny because I have decided to make a list for New Years of not goals, but why I am grateful to be alive. Do I post what I’ve already got?

St George Day

(I’m English and I love Anne Stokes)

St George’s Day in England remembers St George, England’s patron saint. The anniversary of his death, which is on April 23, is seen as England’s national day. According to legend, he was a soldier in the Roman army who killed a dragon and saved a princess.

Loyal Company

I’m going to do it!

So this is how this works right, I let you know what I’m want to do…This way I cannot back out!

For YEARS now I have wanted to learn how to start drawing. In my head I am such a visual person and I LOVE to start getting some of my ides onto paper. Instead of getting someone else to draw them for me. As beaitiful as the drawings are, it would save me so much more money if I did it myself,lol

The other thing that did occur to myself over the weekend was this. I LOVE the little creations that Little Fat Dragons, Plush Like Creatures etc 

They make the cutest little creatures, but they are all overseas and a lot of the time not only are the expensive (but totally worth it)…but sometimes I miss the sales because of the time differences. I think they are mostly in the America areas…Why don’t I just start making my own?!

Share Your World … Nov, Week 4

Share Your World … November 27th 2017

Would you prefer a reading nook or an art, craft, photography studio?

If I could I would have both a reading nook and a art and craft studio. I like taking photos, but I’m not really interested in it to make it a whole room. I am more of a “phone photo taker”. I would love to have a reading nook though, I have seen so many pictures of people’s reading nooks and I just love them! I play “The Sims” and pretty much all of my houses have a “reading room”.

Tell how you are feeling today in the form of a weather report. (For example, partly cloudy, sunny with a chance for showers, etc.)

I love this! It’s a little bit cloudy, but there is a sun and some light peeking out and hopefully there’ll just be a lot of light soon!

If you could witness or physically attend any event past, present or future, what would it be?

I would love to attend a Bruno Mars concert. At the moment I can’t really go to concerts, I don’t want to spend a lot of money just to have an anxiety attack. I keep telling myself though Bruno Mars is young, I’m getting better…One day this will happen!

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

Why I really like Beyonce

Other than the obvious, that she is just WAY cooler than I ever will be,lol

I just love her art and how she expresses herself. I know that she gets a lot of slack for how she sometimes her portray herself…But I love it! You take the 2017 Grammy Awards and how she got a lot of flack because some people were asking “Does she think she’s a God” … Clearly Beyonce doesn’t think she’s a “God” It’s called creativity you dingle berries Do you ask Pablo Picasso “Does he think he’s a cube?”

Too me Beyonce is just a Queen of Creativity, everything she does is creative and not the set standard creativity either. She does things out of the box…Which is why I love Beyonce, I love waiting to see what she’ll do next!

 

Little Wings

I have spent this entire last week completely sick, it’s been horrible! Usually, when I get a cold or flu it lasts for a couple of days and then it’s over, sometimes I might have a cough, but usually I’m not sick for long. I’ve had this thing for like 5 days, and it’s only just starting to get a little better.

However, one of the things that has gotten me through is my own little plush Dragon from the awesome Dragon Lady Art, and you have only a few days left to get make sure that you can get your own! I try really hard not to “advertise” but everyone who knows me, knows that I love Dragons and I loooooooooove projects like these! I am so disappointed that I can’t really justify getting another one at this point, and being a little selfish here too. I want to be able to get another later on,lol.

Share Your World … Week 36

List 2 things you have to be happy about?

My furbabies, they were honestly the first thing that popped into my head. The other thing that popped straight into my head is just those who I am very close to. So my family, my partner, my good friends. I honestly don’t know sometimes how I got so lucky. I’ve been losing and getting rid of “unnecessary” people from my life. It’s been great!lol

If you could take a photograph, paint a picture or write a story of any place in the world, what and where would it be?

There is something about beautiful and powerful a sun poking through the clouds. I would love to be paint something like the below picture:

Sunset

The other thing is when I see a gorgeous image like this, it inspires me to want to write about fantastical places.

Should children be seen and not heard?

My mum always takes pride in the fact that myself and my brother were well behaved children. We knew our inside voices, we knew how to behave in restaurants etc. It sounds like though she might have just been very lucky. So I’m not 100% sure, there are some terrors out there. Wooo, what a sensitive subject! I don’t want to answer,lol

List at least five of your favorite first names.

  1. Lilliana
  2. Morgana
  3. Jasmine
  4. Joseph
  5. Anthony or Antony … Which the first name of my Dad and one of my Grandfathers. Which I don’t know if that has anything to do with it, but they sound like strong names to me? Jospeh is my Great Grandfathers names…I’m starting to see a pattern here,lol

Throwback…Right to the childhood

I have just always presumed that people always read http://www.peterrabbit.com/about-beatrix-potter/ as children (and “older” children as well) but not everyone has! Can you believe it?!

Beatrix Potter is probably known as the creator of characters such as:

Peter Rabbit
Mrs Tiggy-Wiggle
Jemima Puddle-Duck

Peter Rabbit – The 23 Original Tales

I found reading through the Guardian and I found an article of “Unseen Beatrix Potter illustrations discovered in stately home” and there are some gorgeous drawings.
