The Mystery Blogger Award was created by Okoto Oke Enigma

I was not nominated for this award, but I thought that An Upturned Souls questions and answers were so beautiful, that I was completely inspired to answer the questions.

An Upturned Soul 5 Questions

#1 – What is the best compliment you could get or have received for one of your creations?

I haven’t honestly created anything yet, everything I am creating is in the middle of it’s creation. I feel like this is the year where all my creations are going to finally come together. I think one of the best compliments you can give someone is just to tell them how their creations moved you, honestly. Did their creation inspire you? Did it move you, what feelings did it make you feel. I don’t mean “It sucked” That is neither constructive or helpful.

#2 – Which creative person has had the most influence on you and your creativity?

I have to say it is my Grandmother (the one I wrote about in my previous post) You know how sometimes you are lucky enough to connect with a person, especially from your own family? Well my Gran is “my person” and she’s probably the biggest cheerleader for all her children and grandchildren. That’s why it’s been upsetting me, I feel like we had to take care of her, instead of her watching over our dog.

#3 – Which work of art, literature, invention, song, film, etc, which has already been created do you wish you could have created?

I think if you read my posts a lot, you will know of my complete love for the world of J.R.R Tolkien. That’s my jive!

#4 – Do you have a creative muse, someone who or something which never fails to get your creativity flowing? Do you want to share your muse or keep them a secret?

My Muse is a “something”. It’s a music something. For some reason whenever I listen to Celtic music, but more specifically Celtic Women…Whenever I hear the music, I want too either jig, if I’m walking, or write, if I’m at home…I even have a video clip for each one of their songs that I really enjoy.

#5 – You find a book and begin to read only to discover that it is your life. You get to the point that you are at now, do you turn the page knowing that you will not be able to change the events to come? (weird-funny question from Mantelligence: 83 Hypothetical Questions)

No! Oh my goodness…As tempted as I would definitely would be, I would never be able too. I don’t want to know. It’s just too much pressure, whether it’s something good or bad. Even if it’s something good, the pressure to wait for it too happen, would be just as unbearable.

My 5 Questions for anyone who would like to answer them:

#1 What is something you have always wanted to started to do? Still have yet to do it.

#2 Like Homer Simpson, he sold his soul for a doughnut. What would you sell yours for?

#3 Would you want to have good magic or dark magic…Why and what responsibilities would come along with it? (Inspired by Doctor Strange)

#4 What is the wisest thing you have heard someone say?

#5 What would make you feel more worthy?

I need to find a good, but yet cheap photo-shop type program. I want to create some bookmarks (and some other ideas) and the programs that I have, are not very flexible. I need a program where I can create more patterns, just do more.

Good Week Wrap-up

Although I feel like I’ve been quiet this week on the Blogging front. The quality of the Blogging has been good. Not only that though, on Monday was I not looking forward to this week. Although physically I am so tired because of different reasons of lack of sleep…Everything that I feared is…

I got swapped when I wanted too and I didn’t even have to deal with the person who’ve been giving me trouble. I got to speak with the regional manager and binga banger boom…Got swapped =D I found some things that shall be simple and still lovely for my Lolsy’s Library Shop…Exciting!!! I also have an interview for a course that I’m interested in doing. I got more work for next week…

I cannot wait for next week! I am so busy every day next week. Not including all the fun stuff I will be doing after the busy stuff.

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.

 

 

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!

 

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?

Stuff and Things

So since my post last week about “Little Nooks” for your reading areas. I have found so many more amazing things that you can just have in your room. I’ve listed a few of my new favourite sites (where I’ll look for hours, but never buy anything). I’m always trying to find “things and stuff” for that day I win the lotto and can have my dream house.

I found this amazing page on PinInterest. The page is called “Cool Stuff for Teens” but it’s really a bunch of amazing reading chairs that you can have in any reading room. To the very extravagant chairs, to many different variations of the ‘bean bag’.

Now personally when I’m reading a book, I tend to drink warm drinks with my book. Don’t know why, but I just find it so much more relaxing. However, I found these amazing USB mini fridges where you can put in a can or two, or even a bottle and keep it nice and cool. You can probably even put a nice glass of wine in it, to keep to cool. These products can range from about $30.00 – $60.00, depending on the brand, type and size.

Then as well there is always the little bits and pieces that go into your room. D.I.Y Ready Now I know a lot of these are for “teenage girls” BUT just your creativity to suit it to your needs (or wants…Should stop looking at these sites, they make really want to win the lottery,lol)
