Fall colors

I was looking at the fall colors outside today. They put me in a crafty mood so I decided to make a little plush doll and draw a creepy cat. Days like this are the best days to do arts and crafts!!

I got sunshine on a cloudy day

Sometimes life can be pretty tough. There is always something standing there to crush you and if you constantly think about these crushing things, then your going to be a pretty sad person. Normally if you look on the bright side of things (I know this is a cliche, but it's true), nothing can crush you. When you start having a bad day, think of all the things you have done. Ask yourself questions like, "Did i say/think something bad about another person?", "Was I mean to anyone?", "Was I inconsiderate and too worried about my time to help out another?".  If you answered yes to any of these questions, then that is more than likely why your day is going bad. Thinking positive thoughts and not saying bad things about people will make your life 100% better.  This video will take 15 minutes of your time and highly recommend watching it.  If you don't have time to watch it right now, you should some other day. After watching this video, you will see the 7 day challenge.  Try to do it! Go 7 days without saying negative things to/about people or thinking negatively towards them. If you mess up, tell them you are sorry or if you think something negative, just think something positive about them instead. The Scary Guy in this video is inspirational and is trying his hardest to change the way the world is today.
If your having a bad day and can't answer yes to any of those questions, then go drink a cup of coffee because coffee is the medicine to everything. 

Almost Halloween!!!

Halloween is my favorite part of the year...well actually I say that at Christmas too, but thats not the point...the point is that Halloween is in a week! I majorly slacked on getting my costume this year and did and emergency Goodwill run last night to find something Austin and I could be. After looking for an hour and going through at least five outfits, we finally found the one! I am not going to say what it is until Halloween because surprises are always the best! Ironically enough, there was a car parked in Goodwill's parking lot with a hand hanging out of the trunk and a Freddy Krueger mannequin in the passenger seat (yes, there was a man who got kicked to the back seat so dear Freddy could stretch those legs out). Luckily, the car was in front of us when we left!

After we left goodwill, we were starving so we quickly ate at Buffalo Wings so we could continue our search for costume accessories.  We got everything else at Hobby Lobby and Walmart!  Now all we have left is to make our costume!  Happy almost Trick-or-Treat!

A look behind the lens

Pictures hold the meaning to life stories; stories most of us will never be able to live. When looking at pictures back during in older times, you see things such as a woman with tons of wrinkles. Behind every wrinkle is a story. Looking at her in the photo tells her life story and makes you feel as if you have a personal connection to her. The life that people had to live back then seems impossible to many of us today. Some look at pictures like this and just see a picture, I try to see the story. Imagine finding a picture and being able to jump inside of it for just five minutes and get a glimpse into the life of another human. Never judge someone before walking where they have walked because you never know where the wrinkles came from.
