Songs + Cats

Aloha my friends, I hope you are all well.
I don't have much to say, as I have not been well lately.
Well the other night I chopped my hair off, so it's much shorter in some places. I'm thinkin' of making some bright royal blue streaks in it somewhere...

I found this cute little idea for doing a canvas:
They are so easy to do, and look so pretty.

Also, my rosette tutorial was featured on Jordan's blog. Go and check it out, she has lots of craft, food, hair, and game ideas, sent in from girls all around the planet.

The following are a few of my Youtube favourites. They are all covers of classic songs...

'The Climb'

These guys are amazing; I just LOVE their smooth, perfect voices.


The most beautiful version of the most beautiful song. I wish I had a voice like the second girl that sings.

"I'm Yours"

The most adorable boy goin' around. Love his itchy nose!

Sam Tsui

This guy is amazing- so clever, and has an amazing voice!!

At the moment, I'm so clucky. I WANT A BABY. But it's not just tiny humans I'm craving. 
I want a cat.

So much.
So I cant take photos like these.
Have someone always on my side.
Someone who gazes at me and doesn't care what I look like.
Someone to make me smile.
Someone to snuggle up with.
Someone who needs me!

{P.s. Not saying that I don't have someone to make me smile and who needs me etc; I just want a cat!!}

beautiful instrumental music and what i wore once

As I sit here, wearing a scarf on my head {like this},and chewing on my gnocci and fried zuchinni, onion and garlic, these topics take over my mind:
-Thank God for these amazing heat packs
-Music jamming this arvo with peeps from church {violin for me}
-Gotta wash those dishes
-Ooohh!! A new blog I found whose posts I must scour for awesome ideas {Fabric Bows and More}
-That canvas I'm planning, inspired by Rachael from Talk 2 the Trees. Oh her work just stuns me; look at this one:

Colorful Tree Painting - Mixed Media - Explore - 8x10 Original Painting - Bright - Happy - Colors

and this amazingly beautiful one...

Mixed Media - Big Eye Art - Sunshine - Quote Painting - Large - Original Painting - Girl with bird

I also thought that I would share with you some of my favourite pieces of music without voices. These are great for background music, or when you need to relax. They'd also be great for a slideshow of your photos, or somethin' like that.

'Goodbye Forever'

'Friend (Lover)'
{i just love this one; it's great background music}

'Falling Blue'
{this my most favouritest EVER piece of music on the internet. the chords just penetrate right through me, as i close my eyes and sway...}

'The Milky Way'
{also beautiful. i love how you can see how the music is created...}

'You Got The Love'
Florence and the Machine
{i love hearing the backing tracks for well known songs}

# # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # #

And that concludes our music for the day.
Next up, we have an outfit. 
One of a kind.
{When I felt like being emo, but not too emo.}

{this one wasn't posed but when I saw it, I saw that
I was doing a face that some girls sometimes use in photos. So I used this pic}

*Hair colour: Raspberry Beret PaintBox Fudge

*Flannie: Coles (on sale for $2.75!!)
*Shirt: Retrostar (on sale)
*Leggings: I dunno, they're just black leggings
*Boot: Mens construction boots (bought for   going to Cambodia with Teen Missions)
*SHOELACES: Retrostar. Again.

Well so long my friends, enjoy the rest of your weekend,

In The Light Of A Lamp

a corn cob on string
a vintage frock show that i forgot to go to
