QUESTIONS:

Pancakes, waffles or French Toast as your breakfast favorite? 

Without question, waffles. I love them all mind you, but if I had to chose, it’d be waffles. I wouldn’t be able to tell you why though. I like that just that little bit more though.

Do you think a person’s name influences the person they become?

I think to some extent it does. When you think about the amount of celebrities who change their name, that we know them by. So on some level it does. I also think they we feel not a social pressure, but a certain type of pressure to be like what you were named after. Myself, I was named after Lauren Bacall. Sometimes I feel I need to be a bit more cooler…At least I’m not named Karen at this time!

Would things get better or worse if humans focused on what was going well rather than what’s going wrong?

I do believe it would go better if we focused on more things that were going well. It just does your brain good. But not like the way Trump does it. He thinks everything he does, goes well. Don’t do “going well” like Trump.

Is math(s) something that humans created or something we discovered? Is looking at reality mathematically an accurate representation of how things work?

Maybe both?lol. I think it’s kind of hard to explain, as I would not call myself “mathematical” at all,lol. It does to an extent, it also depends though…Oh god, this is complicated in my mind. I know that I think maths does accurately represent how a lot of things work, but not everything…lol. As an example, they say music and maths are very similar. So somebody who can do maths well, can also play music. HOWEVER, does that mean that someone who can do maths, also represent how and why music makes us feel how we feel when we listen to a song that makes us feel … Oh dear god, I thought…ed!lol


GRATITUDE

What are you grateful for right now?   I realize it’s difficult to be very positive right now, unless one is being positive that things are pretty awful.   Let’s spread the joy in gratitude!! 

I am honestly grateful for the Blogging community, especially the people who read mine! I had to go away and you’re all still here! Still communicating with me, although at the moment it can feel somewhat of an overabundance of communication is happening right now. It’s good and positive communication. Even this question is positive. Despite knowing that it’s not a great time, the question asks us to think of something positive and so you do. So I ask anyone who may not do the questions this week, to read this and any other blogger whose done the questions this week and think of something joyful and positive!

The Lolsy’s Library Shop Update

So I’m not sure how many of you are aware that I know have a website:

Lolsy’s Library

The major reason I started the website was because I was completely inspired  by crafts and creating something that I could sell. Something and ideas that were related to my Blog. I bought items to create candles and those little polymer clay figurines. Originally I had planned to have them all created and done by now.

However, I didn’t plan on the planning, that it wouldn’t be so easy to just up and create things. There are different types of polymer clay and of course the ones that I bought are all hard and are hard to use and mould. There is “soft polymer clay” however, which means now I am going to grab some of those, but they will still take a few days to get here. As for the candles, I need more equipment to create those. I need to go to an op shop and get some pots and pans. As well as more scents.

It’s not all going exactly to plan…Isn’t that life though!

Here’s what I need to do soon:

  • Two pans to make the candles. Ones that can be damaged.
  • Look into soft fimo…I haven’t really found any colours that excite me!
  • Have to get the warning flame labels for the candles.
  • Need to get better sculpting tools for the polymer clay. The ones I bought, half have broken already.

 

 

July Goals

This month is very much about getting things that I’ve gotten together and actually start using and creating with them!

  • Get a Yoga Schedule – Focus mainly on strengthen my sciatica.
  • Make a budget. I don’t know how but somehow even though my anxiety has lessened and I’ve been able to start catching buses again. Somehow I spent more money than when I’d caught taxis? Makes no sense!
  • Create some healthy winter recipes.

CREATE!!!

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?!

I feel good writing this and getting this out there…So i must be right?!

Something you’ve created

37. Something you’ve created

I’ve been trying to think of something that I’ve created and it’s been really hard to think of something. Whether it’s been physically made something or emotionally/mentally. I didn’t really want to ask anyone either what they thought.

I guess the closest I can say about something that I have created is positivity. I remember a couple of people in my life have said to me that I can see the positive on a lot of topics. Even when a situation in completely negative, I can see the good in the situation.

People are always saying to me that when I’m mad or upset, people should listen because there is clearly something wrong. The ironic thing about that is the first person who ever said that too me was also someone who ended up being one of the worst bullies that I have ever encountered. However, it has been said time and time again. There was also another incident, a natural disaster and people were criticising those who kept saying “Pray for … so and so”. I just pointed that sometimes that’s all people can do. They can’t afford to spend even a dollar for others. A lot of people live pay check to check, so it’s all you can do. As long as you’re trying, sometimes that’s literally all people can do.

One of my friends actually said to me that it made her really think because she’s never thought of it that way before. She’s criticising people who may genuinely not be able to do anything but Pray. How bad would she feel if someone felt so bad that they weren’t able to do anything that gave money or items that they can’t actually afford and then put themselves in a vulnerable position?

Getting started

This is for all my drawing/artist/creative type readers/Home Business followers…At the moment I have two casual jobs and while I enjoy both of them I am just not making enough money. I’m making enough to “survive” and luckily my partner and my mum charge me rent/bills on a percentage of what I make, rather than a set amount.

As I mentioned before I really do enjoy where I’m working at both places, I am really lucky that all my co-workers are lovely people and even with that one expected customer that’s always causing trouble. The work is good too, not to difficult that I just can’t do it, but keeps me busy and my mind off other things. Some weeks though I just don’t get the shifts, which when you’re a casual means, you get paid…well…nothing.

So this is where all my drawing/artist/creative type readers/Home Business followers come into play. I want to do something from home where I can make money as well. I love doing little crafty things and I would love to make a little business of bits and bobs. However, I have no idea where to start. So I was hoping that someone could give me ideas of any web pages or any sites that are good for people who want to get started, what sites are good to sell on, any legal information I may need. I was thinking of making things like:

  • Themed candles as well as just random scented
  • Handmade cards for all occasions
  • Flowery headbands
The Thinker
“The Thinker” created by Le Penseur

I am writing a couple of stories and am even writing what I call “script ideas” for a tv show for a role playing game that I used to play and I would love to be able to draw. I am a very visual person, but I am honestly also too lazy to learn how to draw properly. I can start and try, but I’d probably never get to the point where I could sell the art. The writing is mainly for myself and I’m not sure that I have to confidence to try and sell the ideas to someone either…It makes me feel kind of sad too at the same time as well. Who doesn’t want to be the next J.K. Rowling?

Winter Drinks

We are now going through the middle of Winter and it is cold and I am not very good during the cold weather and I have been looking at some lovely hot, steamy drinks…So I am going to share some of them I am planning on making this Winter, I just have to figure out the amount that these recipes makes: What are some of your favourite Winter beverage recipes? any family favourites or classics?

Living Doll

You may notice that I have a theme today, but it’s that time of year and I get all silly and nostalgic, but these dolls are just stunning! The hours it must take to create these … I think that 2016 is going to be the year that I get back into my creative side again … I definitely have gotten my confidence back, it’s time to do something with that. If you have a “thing” against Barbie, what about these ones?

… And just for something a little silly
