Busy Busy Busy!

Hello! Soo....This week I have really gotten alot done! I love weeks like this!!! Below is my bubble gum machine. I absolutly love this thing, but after I painted my room and bed, I decided, it needed some paint to. The red just wasnt right somehow, maybe it was that I had a yellow wall...and I HATE red and yellow together. It reminds me of mustard and ketchup, and McDonalds..eww.....So I went to wally world looking for a baby blue, but they only had a primary blue. So I got this blue ocean breeze color instead. I wonder who comes up with all these names for paint? Like mellow yellow, peachy palmegranate, and such. I think I would be pretty good at it ;)
Nice huh??? I just love the color!

This color is soo cool! It looks soo much better than the red!

Thursday my Dad put up the shelf he made me Wednesday. I am very gratful to him for it. I have wanted a shelf for quiet awhile now.

It looks sooo good! It took my awhile to figure out how I wanted the books on top. But I finaly got it. I desperately need some books ends. VERY badly! I am so afraid of them all topling over me at night. These are some of my favorite books. I have read just about all of them. I'm a wierdy for books!
I also painted this wall yesterday, if it was not for the white wall it corners with, you couldn't really tell it was grey. I love gray. I did this several years ago when I was like 12, and I finaly found a spot for it! For a long time it didnt belong anywhere, but finaly it has a proper home. It pulls perfectly from the blue-ish green bubble gum machine, and my polka dot blanket on my bed.
Did I ever mention I collect river glass? And peices of pottery as well? Yeah, someday I plan to have enough to make a huge mosaic. I have a while to go yet, and I've been collecting for about 3 years. I normaly do best in the winter, cuz thats when its safe to go to the river without getting snake bit. I just love the turquoise peices, they are my favorite, of course :)
Today I plan to start on my quilt.I should realy spend some time outside today also, its soo nice out! I just LOVE fall!!!!! And hey, who knows, maybe I might even get some sketching done today! Have a great weekend everyone :)

Making always...

Today I decided to add some decorations to my room. Monday I made curtians, so today, some kirigami, glue and cute picture frames added a nice touch of quarkyness =)Ok, so I am thinking of maybe adding a border, what do you think? Maybe it will make it look more perfesional..ok, I think I will have to do that, so just picture these with borders, cuz I am not uploading more pics when I add borders to them..... ;)
Here is a flying creature of some sorts that I created yesterday, its blue, so I like it :)

And here are my curtians, they arent the best I have to say. They were the first ones I ever made and I was determined to do them without moms help, but as always, I shouldnt have. But I learned now, that you need to make them WAY wider than you would think. You are better off with a ton of ruffles instead of none.... :) Later today I AM going to start a new quilt. I am going to use 1930's material, and the pattern is more traditional than I normaly do. I cant wait to start and finish it, I just know it will be lovely! I am making it for my bed, and I am thinking of hand quilting it, that way it will be more special. I love hand quilted blankets, they are so much more cozy! <3>

Here is me and my baby! Isent she a doll?!? I just love her tons, she wasnt as happy as she looks here, that is cuz of her leash. It was the first time I took her out on a leash, and she hated it. ;)
and here beside is a nice pic of fall leaves and mossy rock, pretty huh?
Ok, leaving now, I might go do some origami, and I need to make curtians for my room, I am not looking forward to that. tootles for now :)
Ok, so finaly I figured out AGAIN how to upload pics. I had to do some re-setting stuff so get this to work. . I love all the rocks! The first one is the spring house, It used to have a roof when my mom was a kid :)

I think this is all for this post, I still havent mastered this new way of putting pics up and it does wierd things that frustrate me. So I am going to have to do my other ones of me and my dog, in another post.... :)

So, not mush has been going on lately. Just a pretty normal week of school and what not. I just got done putting a casserol in the oven and folding towels. I also bathed my Tillie dog <3
 Today, since it is so pretty out side, I decided to take a walk in the woods. I took my camera of course. The trees are not quiet done turning, but a few are very pretty. I would dearly love to uplaod pictures.......but apperantly, it wont let me, and I have NO clue what to do about it! I makes me sign into my google acount, which I didnt even want! and it wont even take my e-mail or password!!!!! OI1 This stuff makes me seriously mad!!!!!! >:( I hate computers, and technoligy, i cant even spell it right I am sure...>_< And it does not help that we have google BLOCKED!!!!!!!!! I better stop now befor I say somthing regretable, I am very unhappy right now (its the link, jones, valencia, irish, spanish blood in me)
Good bye, hopefully I can get this figured out soon.... (wish me luck!)

Being Domestic

Oh dear, I just got done writing a very long post on microtsoft word, and then I tryed to copy and past..and lost it all :( Here is goes, 2nd time around!

So this week has been good. Monday, school was a wreck cuz I had to catch up on alot of school from the previous week when I was sick. Nothing significant happend, it was a beautiful day as I recall, and I spent all of it indoors. I worked on my room, I re-painted one wall yellow. It is nice, I finished it on tuesday, I think... I have bad memory. Here is it, nice huh???
Mom hates it :) She really does not like the yellow. It used to be a gray wall, and a red bed....But I grew to hate it. I love this much more.

Then on tuesday I made supper, cuz mom had to take a freind to the doctor, so she wasnt home till late. I made chicken and dumplings, and unfortunaly, I dont have a picture of them. Which is a bummer. I also finished my shawl, but I think it needs to be bigger....what do you think? I think its pretty

Wednnesday brought new things for me. I learned how to make pastry pop tarts. Without a recipe. Of course I had one for the pie crust, that was easy. They turned out pretty good I think. Looked nice to, kinda like a real old fashioned homemade look about them. I like it :)
And below is my working area.

Nice too, I had pictures of other things, like more pastrys, but the batteries were low in the camera and they didnt save or somthing. I also made my favorite mexican meal, it was as good as when mom makes it, she told me herself :)
Wednesday evening me, dad and Ezra went to church. It was good as usual.

Thurday we went to "gym day". It just a church who opens up their gym to all the homeschoolers in the area. THey also have pool, air hockey, ping pong and a work out area. I hadnt gone all school year yet, and I am glad I went. I normaly dont go cuz all the kids do is play sports..and I HATE sports! So from now on, if we go, I wil just play pool...I LOVE pool...alot...and I am realy bad at it :)I wish we had a pool table so I could get good at it. After gym, we went to a nearby thrift shop and I foun amazing deals. I got 3 seriously cute name brand tank tops for under8 dolors all together , a pair of much needed work pants, and some Chuck Taylor, black high tops, for 2 dollars! I was sooo happy!!!! Still am! My shoes are hanging out on the line right now drying, I washed em' :) I just need to wash the laces now. Now I have red, black, gray, and cream colored Chuck Taylor Converse, and I am getting yellow ones with my x-mas moneys :D
When we came home, mom made us burritos and we went and picked up walnuts. That was entertianing and boring at the same time. My brother kept asking how to say things in spanish, and he learned things like "Cow suck blood"...oh dear... :) That was the entertaining part, the boring part was the walnuts. Then on our way home, dad got the truck stuck over a stump. But it wasnt a long walk home, just a hop over the fence, a short walk to the lane, and down the lane to the house. I then chated with my bestest freind in the whole wide world, my brother in-laws sister, Rachel.<3<3<3<3 Then after that I re-learned some fiddle tunes I had forgotten on my Irish penny whistle. It brought back early years of playing on stage and being nervouse as all get out. But nice memories as well :)

Today has been normal. I did school out on the picnic table, english and math testest today..did good on both :) I was relieved. I thought I would also share, what my view looked like from where I did school..... :) enjoy. I sure did

Frist, is the picnik table, unfortunatly, I didnt get in the stone floor we are putting in, it looks soo nice!

This is the veiw. The yard looks sorry, the epa took all our soil away...darn government! There was supposedly lead poisening in it. (wat ev!) So they took it away, and brought SAND! So now, all those patches of green you see, is crab grass...!!! >:(

Here are more, theres my grammar book, a shot of the rock floor I didnt relize I got, and my pitty pat Lulu...She loved coming out with me <3 Oh, and yes, that is the grading book on top of my grammar book, I started to grade it..and then, since it was a test, and they take forever to grade! I let mom do it for me :)

Last night as I was laying in bed, I got in the mood to do some I think, that after I do my bible verses for school, I will work on some portriats, and then paint some!Sounds good to me. I also need to be thinking of somthing to make for my sister and brother in-law for x-mas, I drew their name for christmas. Well tecnicaly, my sister did it for every one, cousins and all, cuz we forgot to the last time we were together. I had better go now :) Ttyl til next time, and who knows when that will be. Tommorow I am going fishing with my dad, brother (maybe both if my big one gets back from college in time!) and my pastor and his son. Oh, and the youth leader from church as well :) Happy days!
goodbye freinds!
