Writing Poetry

      Have you ever got inspired to write poetry as soon as you finished reading it? If you answered yes, then your just like me! Just recently I noticed, while going through my old songs that I have written. That not only was I songwriting, but I was also writing poetry without thinking!! It hit me so hard, the idea of writing poetry, that I have read and watched so much info on poetry writing and inspiration. And I can honestly say, I am hooked on it! 


These are a few of the books that have been very helpful to me (of course one of them isn't a poetry writing help book. It's a folk song book for guitars, that I just had to check out). On top of all that, I have doubled my poem reading, and have been checking out poem books from different poets, and getting inspired by their work!


And this my friends, is my songwriting/ poetry book. it contains some of my songs and a few of my poems. One day if I ever get the courage, I'll show it to you all here! But yeah it's kinda private. 
I can't wait to fill it up with ideas, songs and more poems! 

Another thing, this is my last Saturday before I begin college. I'm just excited and nervous at the moment! But so thankful! ^^

Clothing And College Diy's


Hello my lovelies!! Today I bring you some of my most recent Diy projects! 
Just in case you are looking for something cool to make this week! 
I was going to include a Lookbook, but I didn't have time. 
So here we go! 



I just adore the character Professor Zundapp from the movie Cars 2! He's so sly and not to mention German! (I love germany). But being able to find a shirt with him on it, is impossible! So I decided, enough is enough! I'm going to draw my own! I used a white t-shirt and fabric markers to create this. 

 

Awhile ago, I had made this thing called a hippie vest. I posted it up on my Instagram, but since then have added new patches onto my vest. Just wanted you to see my recent additions to it.


Moving onto my last Diy. This is one of the notebooks I intend to take to college and use for my history of rock class. I used some of my old sketches to cover up a notebook that I thought needed some Lynn flair to it! I have this thing, that when I see something familiar in a different place, it helps me relax a bit. That's what my sketches do for me. Of course I Mod Podged the entire cover of the notebook, to keep my creations safe! 

I hope you liked my Diy's! I'll be posting more of them later on! ^^

College, Ribbons and Bananas

Hi guys! Sorry I took so long to get here, but I was busy all this week and couldn't find the time to post anything. But now I'm here! and I have great news to tell!!


As of yesterday, I am now officially a college student! And I have my ID to prove it! Can't believe this is actually happening to me! After all that trouble college sign ups gave me last year, I thought I'd never get in school. But here I'm and thanks to God, I can now study music! 


This is totally random, but I had to show you guys this notebook. It's made from recycled paper and banana fibers?! What are banana fibers exactly? Are they those stringy things that come off a banana when you peel it? Weird, but I thought it was pretty cool that this brand of notebooks, doesn't use trees when they make their paper. Because the world needs all the trees it's got! 


And last but not least! Here is my fair entry that won 3rd place! This choker necklace took me about 3 weeks to make and it was nothing but loooooooong strands of hemp string, hundreds of beads and a lot of knotting for 3 weeks. But it was fun! I got to see it on display along with other amazing entries from other talented people! I'm so happy to have won 3rd place! And I look forward to creating another piece for the fair next year!

Unleash The Curls


  Ever since I started growing out my hair, I've noticed that I keep trying to tie back my hair in ponytails, pigtails and braids. Not that I don't like those hairstyles........it's just that, It feels like a way to keep my hair in check and hide the natural flow of my hair.  Back in the day, I used to straighten my whole head, which I can tell you, it always took forever! It was always the same thing: wash, put hair oils, blow dry, flat iron sprays, flat iron it and then put more products to keep my hair from frizzing up! All together that took about 3 hours! 
       Well that got old fast and that's when I decided to cut my hair into a faux hawk, which I loved! But it still required a lot of maintenance and product to keep it up all day. So I decided to grow it out, which is the state I am in at the moment! Only this time, I hardly do anything to my hair: only one product, no blow drying, a quick use of the flat iron on my bangs only and no brushing! But going back into the topic. I have to learn to accepted my curly hair and be proud of what God has given me! Even if my hair gets big and frizzy sometimes! 

Do you have curly hair? :D

Pirates And Presents

(Sorry about the poor picture) 

   So my little sister's birthday is coming up soon. And she had been wanting a pirate fairy doll for awhile now. And me being the good big sister that I am, got her the doll! But she 's not the only one who really wants this doll, I do as well! Back when Disney came out with the Pirate Fairy film, I began to take notice of the main character. Because who doesn't love a fairy/ pirate/ tough girl/ with great clothes and awesome hair?! Anyway I can't keep the doll from my sister, so thats's too bad for me. But seeing my little sister's happy face when she gets the doll, will make up for it.

Do any of you guys like fairies? :)

Snake Bites And Books



So a couple weeks ago my ear piercings finally healed! 
And now I could start wearing other post style earrings. I took a trip to my local Claire's shop and purchased 2 pairs of post earrings. One is a pair of silver and white stars and the other is a pair of goofy looking snakes (I was looking for shark earrings but they didn't carry them). 
Changing my starter stud earrings was nerve wrecking, because I was scared that I was going to get an infection. But surprisingly I didn't. The bad thing about the snake earrings,  is that they are too heavy for me to be wearing at the moment, I only plan on wearing one at a time with another mismatched earring.


Nevertheless they are still pretty cool! 


I also finally spent the money on my Barnes and Noble birthday gift card. I used it to buy a diy crafting book. This book is one of my favorite craft books ever! Even though I hardly ever follow directions when it comes to crafting, I like to look at the pictures and in my mind start creating something that matches my style, which at the moment I don't know what it is! Sort of a hippie meets elven viking thing........ah I don't know! 


Ta da!!!! These are my star studs! I've been wearing these for about a week, 
and my ears are not getting irritated because of the sterling silver metal that these earrings are made from. It's a sad thing being sensitive to so many earrings, because the ones that are not for sensitive ears are always the ones I want to wear! 


How about you? Do you have sensitive ears? Or whats your favorite craft book?
