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?

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!!!

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!

 

Recipe Magic

Sometimes you just find a awesome bunch of recipes that just make you want to try them all in THAT moment! I came accross these amazing recipes through Buzzfeed.:

21 Technicolor Treats That Will Make Your Mouth Water (Article written by:Krista Torres). These just look amazing, I have been trying to experiment this year with more different recipes and trying new thing. My mind is over imploding with all these new recipes, I can’t wait to try them.

There’s a couple I am really looking forward to making:

Homemade galaxy ice-cream (Maybe during summer, it’s Winter here).

D.I.Y Tie-Dye Smores

Please let me know if you try any of these!

Blog Block!

I have been really struggling to find, at least, anything interesting to blog about today! So what better way to try unblock myself than to talk about Blog Block!

What do you like to do to unblock yourselves? In the writing sense of course! Or creative block!

I like to listen to music, but when I have a block and I determined to write, I have to listen to a certain type of music. Usually it’ll be something Celtic or “mystical” I love Enya. Taking me to another place, even if it’s just in my mind, can really get my creative juices flowing. Some people think it’s weird that because I love to play games, I don’t just play some computer games to unblock myself? It is weird, I don’t use games to unblock my writers block because when I play games, my brain tends to be thinking differently when I play games. I think playing games is a different kind of relaxation. Sometimes it’s not relaxing to play computer games at all, it can be intense!

One of my favourite performers of all time and she is great when I really need my “mind to get away” (if that makes sense) is Enya (you might all know her best from the Lord of the Rings as the singer of “May it Be”. My very favourite of hers though and one I really love to listen to when I am in a particular bind is “Wild Child”.

 

My sweet Oasis: The Daily Post

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/oasis/

A sanctuary is a place you can escape to, to catch your breath and remember who you are. Write about the place you go to when everything is a bit too much.

This would definitely have to be my bedroom, my place of sanctuary and safety. Especially now with my new t.v. and awesome partner getting me a chromecast, I just need a little fridge in there and I could hide there for days (although staying in a caravan I know that can be just as dangerous!). I love the nights were I just take my computer, put my television on in the background and just read my book, while I have DJuma Cam – Ustream on in the background. It is such bliss! It’s amazing how much creativity happens on those nights too! lol

My River Song Journal

2015-12-25 18.57.17

I was completely inspired to write this post after reading this post: http://ceenphotography.com/2015/12/27/finding-myself/

So I strongly believe that every girl needs diary or a journal and what better way for the new year than a River Song Journal after all “You have to have something scandalous to read on long journeys”. I consider myself incredibly lucky that this year for Christmas I was able to score myself a River Song Journal and I am so excited for next year! I can just feel that it’s going to be full of creativity … I wonder what scandalous things will be happening for me next year! What are you excited for next year? What will be your scandalous story be for the year?

That time of year

One of the problems about this time of year and being an introvert, you feel this total feeling of needing to catch up with everybody, yet you don’t want to see anyone…Luckily though I combat with this with being creative, even if it means just writing my Christmas Cards in multiple colours.

Here’s to the freaking weekend

long weekend

It’s another long weekend here in Australia! What do you like to do with your long weekends? Do you like to do some gardening, shopping, get your creative juices flowing, go on a short holiday perhaps? My family is all coming from interstate this weekend to celebrate my Aunt’s birthday…So I may not be posting or replying as fast this weekend.

So raise your glasses!

Celestial

A little while ago I purchased a Dragon baby from the incredibly talented Little Fat Dragons (Facebook page). Below is a picture of the little Dragon I “adopted” and I finally thought of a name for her!

The reason that I making this post today is because I want to create a little home for her (with more brothers and sisters coming along) I have no idea where to start to make a home for her! Do I make a cage, do I make a nest?
