A change

•January 4, 2013 • Leave a Comment

I’m of the thought I only have one follower.

So I’ve moved this blog. and I’m not posting here anymore.

However if I actually do have more then one follower and you actually care to keep reading my blog (and want to go through all this hassle) Send me an e-mail to Owlet.Creations@Gmail.com with a request and I will send you the link to my blog (I’ve just spent all day moving posts to the new one).

Other wise thanks for your support and I’m sorry but I have enough nonsense and stressful things to deal with in my life from people I don’t even know then to have to add to it from people who should be on my side.

This will be the last post on this blog however the new one will continue where this one left off.

Hugs, Kisses, and Blessed Be

The new year.

•January 2, 2013 • Leave a Comment

So as many do I’ll be making my new years resolution.

Over all goals:

  • Learn Yoga
  • Be counted as a Body Rocker.
  • Be close to if not fluent in Korean
  • have my blogs be successful
  • have Anya able to read and maybe start piano lessons
  • To finally have my craft room organized!! LOL
  • To save between $100-$500 to put towards a trip to South Korea.
  • Read a lot more.
  • Media Database finished and perfected
  • ART!

So to break it down and fill it out:

  • Yoga

I’ve gotten my self a very Journal made of 100% recycled cotton (cool huh)  and I’m going to be making a study of the different Asanas and how to preform them correctly. There is a very large amount of Asanas and so Instead of my goal being to do them all it’s more like I’ll do 2-3 a day and see where I end up. I already have a nice Yoga mat however I really want a Spoonk mat from whole foods (the larger one made from Hemp in the color green).

  • Body Rock!

There is a web site; http://www.bodyrock.tv/   That I’ve taken part in before but stopped because I tried to do to much to quick. This time around I’m going to take it easy so after a week my knee don’t start screaming at me to shut up and sit down LOL. Hopefully by the end of the year I’ll be able to do the daily routines.

  • Korean!!

It’s part of my life and there is going to be no changing that ever! So it’s about time I know the language (way freaking past time truthfully). I’ll be doing 2 lessons a day from Talk to me in Korean and hopefully at some point down the road this year I’ll be able to get the workbooks from their shop and work on them as well. It makes me so happy now that I’ve gotten to the point that any time I type or say a word in English that I know the Korean equivalent to that’s what I hear in my head. Ex. Water (I’m thinking Mul not water), Cat (I’m thinking goyang-i) and so on. I know the alphabet (so how to read and write/type it) it’s sentence structure and translation I need to work on. I wonder though if the way I think about it in my head will help me to sound more like a native speaker then just some over involved English fan girl LOL

  • Blogs!

As always I want to get my blogs updated on a regular basis I have quite a few of them and as I’m going to be putting almost all my crafting away for the year I might be able to finally get the blogs going (I have enough finished back log of crafts to not have to worry about material for the craft blogs) So here’s hoping!

  • Anya

Brian wants to Home school Anya which if we do that means I’m the teacher lol. So This year I’m going to focus in our reading sessions on actually teaching her to read. She is already starting on some math and I’ve found great online vids and lessons (free) to teach you how to play the piano and they are directed towards kids, However she has a grandma that plays the piano and who I’m sure would be happy to help teach Anya (if she hasn’t been hinting at Anya already). She already shows more interest in the Green Brothers crash courses then in cartoons which in my opinion is wonderful.  She is certainly past the blocks stage (she hasn’t touched all the blocks she has here in almost 6 months)

  • My Room

Is a Huge mess, honestly it always is. Total battle to keep the damn thing clean. However this year I’m taking a break (as I eye my yarn and crochet hook with ideas of another pillow course through my head) from my crafts (at least most them , that the plan anyway) and that means %90 of all the crap in my room can and will be packed away into boxes WOOT!! With that much stuff not cluttering up every horizontal surface in sight I might be able to keep it clean (I seriously hope so) and accomplish other things in my life besides just wising to be able to use my desk and bed side table and top of my dresser and the big square table at the foot of my bed and top of the two books shelves and and and and *cry* LOL

  • Korean Trip $$

So I’ll be still selling things even though I won’t be making a ton of new things. I have tons sitting in bags in boxes to be sold. I’ll be getting them photographed and posted on my etsy over the next several months (I’m not even caring about holiday deadlines) and any money I get from etsy sales will be added to my trip to Korea fund. Even though I refuse to go till I’m fluent in the language (or can at least hold my own while I’m there) I’d like to go in 2014 or 2015 (maybe for my 30th b-day I can go on a real trip for once) and I’m certainly going to need some spending money because once I get there I’m never coming back! LOL J/K but there are tons of places I want to go and food I want to try as well and other things I want to do (maybe go to a concert ^_~). I also hope to make it a worth while trip which means I’ll be there for at least 2 weeks but would love to make it more like 2 months. (oie it would be nice if we could just move over there)

  • Read!!!

Ever since I was a little kid I’ve listened to Audiobooks. Now I used to read all the time but once I got into high school and definitely after high school I’ve barely read anything. Now I listen to hundreds of audio books a year but it wasn’t till Nov 2012 that I started reading books again. I came across the first book of Twilight in the salvation army and picked it up for 20 cents. I took it home and said heck why not try, well I finished it 2 days later and went to the library to get the other three books. I got through all 4 books in a total of 11 days which I think might be a record for reading 4 books in a row in my life. So I decided to take on Harry Potter next as I’ve never gotten past the 2nd book (or 3rd movie) I was going to borrow them from the in-laws because I seriously don’t want to go back to the library, however they only have the first 4 in soft covers that felt like they would fall apart if I tried to read them. So I got the first few on e-book format on my crappy android, and you know what I LOVE READING EBOOKS! now page turning no having to be careful not to ripe the book cover, no arms getting tired from hold a 800-1500 page book (I have some books that are 1500+ pages TT_TT you try to hold that for hours at a go).

I love my crappy android 7in screen and the weight are perfect I think if I ever got a tablet I would still use my Cruz reader for reading. it’s about the size of the ipad mini though 2-3 times as think and maybe 4-5 times as heavy but you know what? In my opinion thinner and lighter isn’t always better. (Plus I would never get an iPad mini unless it was only going to be a reader) So this year I’m going t keep up with the reading though its more likely going to be digital then hard copy. next after Harry Potter (half way through book 3 btw) might be Tolkien books, or maybe Steven Erikson’s Malazan Book of the Fallen series or even possibly Twilight again lol J/K (or am I …)

  • My Media Database

I’ve been using Microsofts One Note to pretty much record everything. It’s a digital version of my book of everything just more organized and I’ll never run out of room. I have my favorite authors listed by genre with all their book listed and indicators on weather I have that book in soft cover, hard cover, audiobook, or/and ebook. Same with music (though listed by country) tv shows (also by country) movies, and other likes. I have list of food Brian and I like, recipes,  web sites, actors, actresses, Narrators (as in Audiobooks), lyrics, blog stuff, and even a spot for random crap to check out and go through later.

So I hope to at least get the author/book and Music sections up to date this year in hopes that I can finally get all my music organized and actually put on my iPod. The same with books for my reading pursuits this year

  • Art!

I am putting the fiber art, and jewelry junk away but I’ve decided to let myself have some time to work on my drawing and to work on my fractals I’d Like to try and make at least 10-20 fractals a month this year. Maybe I’ll do a zen tangle per month as well.

So that’s it. I know I’ll get some of it done and some of it will most likely be given up on but I’m going to try my hardest to get though the year.

OMG there is nothing worse (at least for me) then having to get up at any time between 6-10 am in the morning. Seriously Brian has to go to work at 8am tomorrow it’s 4.30 am right now and as usual I’m still up (like I’d be able to sleep even if I tried oie). My best bet now is to stay up and take a nap when Anya does then sleep when Brian gets home tomorrow XD. Thank the Goddess that this is the last morning shift of his for a long while. He loves getting up in the morning and I think he is crazy, He can have it, it’s great bonding time with Anya who loves to be up at day break too, I’ll take all afternoon and evening and if she decides to get up at night. Thats just fine with me.

 

On the plus side Brian’s new job says they don’t mind at all if he grows his hair out long again YA!! Can’t wait he looks awful with short hair, and he goes on and on how he wish he didn’t cut it this last time. Men who can pull off the long hair look a million times better with long hair then short hair. I’ve also found a shop that sells Korean mens fashion for a decent price so I think this next spring we are going to get him an outfit or two and get him to finally have a style other then work and grunge. If it isn’t dress clothes it’s really hard to find decent looking and decent priced clothes for men in America there seems to be no style there at all except for the disgusting wanna be gangster look where their clothes are falling off them as they walk.
Some actual nice styled fitted jeans or Khakis a few shirts and this really snazzy black coat

Or maybe in red

 

and a few other things.

Red, black, purple, green, look good on him while Grey, white, and blues don’t look that good. He is still looking at getting a kilt (for daily wear) and it’s called the Spirit of Scotland Green, black and purple with just a little blue.

 

Just finished watching Faith and oie that was a good drama but I think I watched it to fast lol. Great story, ton of cute/hot guys and WoW the elemental fighting and the Sword play O.O

Now that’s a guy who looks good in grey and blue

And here is case in point for the long hair argument:

And major kudos for getting his hair that white and his deadly magic flute playing :).

 

And last but not least You HAVE to LOVE a man on horse back.

He better win some awards for this drama he was great.

Well It’s ow 5.20 am, Going to do a Korean lesson then work on F4Angels and Marapets Archive for awhile while listening to one of my books.

 

 

Whats been happening.

•November 6, 2012 • Leave a Comment

Been doing tons lately (except sleeping XD)

Playing WoW (not a ton but love being a kaboomkin and a healing monk)

Playing Marapets (more then WoW lol)

Working on my newest blog Marapets Archive (as fun as playing the game)

Watching tons of vids on youtube edu learning about tons of things (usually while playing mara or working on blogging)

Watching Korean Dramas (I love them so much) and doing daily lessons on Talk to me in Korean :D

Working on a John Green Thought bubble amigurumi doll

Learning to make electronic music with Audio Tool (totally crazy and any music I actually make I have all the rights to)

Reading the Bhagavad Gita, The Black Whole War, and thinking of getting some of John Green’s books.

Packing up a ton of stuff I’m not fussing with or don’t plan on fussing with for the next 6 months (goodbye jewelry junk at least for now)

 

That’s about it but it’s keeping me going a lot

 

She is Evil!

•October 4, 2012 • Leave a Comment

For those of you who don’t believe me when I say she is evil I HAVE PROOF!!

 

she is actually on the verge of laughing maniacally. I had just told her to smile before I took that picture and she said NO and made that face instead. LOL

I think she kinda reminds me of Helena Bonham Carter with the crazy hair

It’s starting and I Love it! Been working on getting the house in order and cleaning up things and packing away some things I don’t use a lot.
We got a new kitty in June he is 8 months old now and is as big as Star (who is 3 years). We named him Sova which is Russian for Owl, and like Star he is a Maine coon mix. At first Star did NOT like the idea at ALL. As I write this however they are both sitting next to each other at my feet (on my new Chase lounge). We decided to get him for a few reasons, The #1 reason was so Star would have a playmate and wouldn’t be alone when we would be gone all day at moms or shopping. the other reason is that when I saw his picture I just had to have him. He was rescued from the pound and put up for adoption he is the sweetest cat I have ever had the pleasure to meet he is even more loveable then Star, We thing we lucked out and got two perfect kitties.
However Sova has long hair then Star I’m not sure if it’s baby fur and will grow in shorter but he loses A LOT of it on his own and when the two of them play around so we have been cleaning a lot more lately.

 

I’ve taken up friendship bracelets which is a lot of fun, and Zen Tangle (if you want to call it that) which has been getting me into drawing a lot more. I’m also working on jewelry, amigurumi, fractals, and writing my scifi books.

Brian is working on learning photography mainly because I SUCK at it! He asked me if there was something he could help me with when it came to my art, blogs, sites, shop ect.. and I told him to learn to take good pictures and I’d be set lol. I haven’t posted a lot because I really don’t like blogging without pictures to share and I really hate trying to sell my things when the pictures I have for them are horrible.  Once he can help with that a lot more will be happening.

 

I’ve been watching some really good Korean dramas and playing Marapets which has been rolling out new stuff a lot lately, when I’m not working on my art. I’ve found some new sites I love too, and unfortunately I’ve been sucked into reading about what is really happening in our country and government and I really wish I hadn’t it makes me want to get out of America more then ever I really wish it was easy to move out of this country and it is to more into it. In any case Brian is looking for jobs both here and in Canada since it sounds like his hours will be cut with all the health care stuff going on so they don’t have to give him benefits or whatever.

 

I’ll be posting on F4 in the next few days about a great new music site and some bands I’ve gotten into as well as a new Korean drama site and the dramas I’ve been watching. I’m also thinking of picking my Marasite back up and turning it into a blog I wouldn’t have to take picture for it and I think I’ve got a lot of info to share with others.

 

I’ve also been trying a lot of new foods lately trying to give myself variety while trying to keep healthy veg (I’ve stayed veg but pasta and rice while good and filling are not going to help me). my biggest problem is I could eat raw veggies all day (and Love it) but would still be hungry, I like quinoa but I need to figure out something to do with it as I can’t eat very much of it plain.

 

In 2 weeks we are going to Ren fest and that will be lots of fun, we are taking my sister who has been working all summer to make money for it. I’m getting some special mead I get only once every 3-4 years, some burnables (herbs and such) for my cauldron, possibly another Goddess necklace from the collection I buy from every year, and thats about it. There are some really wonderful things there I would love to have but not this year (I’ve been saying that every year for the last 10) I hope by next year I have my blogs shop, and other sites under way and my health/weight are in a much better condition.

 

Ah one last thing I now know I want to live in a bus! A decked out remodeled very large school bus. Crazy I know but I’ll make another post about it later.
