I really like wearing beanies but the only problem is that it costs a lot (or well in my opinion). In my opinion I'd rather spend my twenty-ish dollars on something else like food. So I invested in a crocheting needle and some yarn and created these! The designs are simple now but with practice and more expensive yarn I could surely create masterpieces. The yarns were only three dollars (the blue unfortunately was five due to the higher quality [it was worth it though - it turned out to be my favorite beanie and beret]). In the long term, the crocheting needle and yarn saved me money while giving me something fun to do. [:

Well... okay I admit it's not perfect, but hey! I think there was definite improvement. Yeah things may not go as you want it to but keep trying and success will come your way. Or well that's how I feel.
So I guess the moral of this post is to not give up! I am feeling a bit cheesy right now. [;
|So as you can tell this is my first one. Not very good. It's pretty much awkward...|
|This is my second try. MUCH better. Far from perfect, but hey I gotta love it.|

So today I thought I'd talk about my broken xbox. It's been quite a while since it's been broken. Almost a year now (I think?). So one day (way long ago in the past) I had the urged to play some games (Halo I - if you are curious). I was playing the snow level (on easy - because I'm actually really bad at video games) (oh and the snow level is my favorite level in Halo I) and all of a sudden I was attacking a ferocious yellow alien (that's uber hard to kill) and then all of a sudden my xbox started to spazz out from my spazzing out at the ferocious yellow alien. Ever since then my xbox has been broken. The disk tray went wild. I guess my xbox had enough of the yellow alien. Unfortunately, I would still like to play against the mass amount of aliens and save the human world. So if you have any suggestions as to why my xbox is being so unfair please tell me! Much appreciated! If you have no clue why (like me) you can giggle about my unfortunate dilemma.

Today is a day to celebrate. It's been a while since everyone in my family has been able to meet up and spend time with each other. So my sisters and I decided to make carrot cake from a recipe found on SF Gate. [ Carrot Cake Link ] This was our first time ever making carrot cake and I must say, it was pretty darn good. There were a few edits in the carrot cake we made though. Ours contained less sugar (for we don't have huge sweet tooths) and more carrots. Definitely worth the time and effort. Bon appetit!
|Home grown carrots [:|
I think food tastes better when it's grown naturally. No chemicals! That's the way it should. It makes life just that much sweeter! To me, I think the home grown veggies are much more delicious. I bet it'll even make kids enjoy their broccoli if it was home grown! I guess that's my advice for the day? Hm...
So my eggs have quite the personality! However, we kinda had a disagreement (hence their facial expressions)

So perspective is something I certainly lack. Thus, I devoted today to perspective. Yay! Did I happen to get any better? Well... I think so. I still have loads to learn, but I sure did learn a lot. Now my pictures will make more sense. Ah drawing straight lines is a challenge... even with a ruler!

I can't control it. No matter what I say or do, I keep watching Bleach. If you don't know, Bleach is an anime. A very long one actually. So I sit and watch and watch and watch until my eyes are sore. Then I take a break and curiosity drives me back to the screen. Sigh* curiosity sure did kill the cat (and my eyes as well). Anyways, I decided to draw Rukia from Bleach. She is definitely not one of my favorite characters (actually she makes it on my least favorite character list) but somehow she inspired me. Odd isn't it? I guess it's a love hate relationship. Anyways, it's not perfect but for a noob I wouldn't say it's too shabby. [: Well below is the picture. It took me forever. Maybe four plus hours... (if you are wondering why it took me so long - note* I am a beginner). Anyways enjoy. (Tips are always helpful ;] )
