Happy Good Friday and WHATS WITH THE WEATHER?!?!?!

Honestly! The weather has been the craziest it's ever been this month.
At the beginning of the month it is still snowing and still not consistently over zero. The snow melts before the morning it through, but it still snowed. The weather was like that over this entire month. That means that up on the mountains it is still snowing, making the wind cold. This past week, has been different.It has gotten quite sunny and the temperature has gotten to a high of fifteen (degrees Celsius). By now the temperature should be about 20 degrees, but it got to at a high of 11.  The temperature is ok for where I live, not great, but ok.
The only catch is that it will be a bluebird day early in the morning than by 1 pm it will have become overcast. Than the clouds will suddenly break and it will start...hailing. Blowing. And snowing. All with the sun shining. After that random 5-minute-madness it will clear up and be a normal day.

Today, on the other hand, was kind of hazy. Sunny but there being a thin layer of clouds covering most of the sky. Warm but with that cool breeze.
Our church group gathered at a park near the beach for our Good Friday get-together. Our church is small, only about 30-40 people in total, so it wasn't like we were taking up the entire park. Our 'pastor' did a thing on the seven last words (I think it was words) of Jesus. After we did that, whoever wanted to play whatever sports could do that. Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, Football, you name it. We did it. (well, not really)
But being in the sun for 4 1/2 hours straight will give you a sunburn. Particularly since the UV is so strong at this time of year. At least where I live it is. That is why I got my FIRST SUNBURN OF THE SEASON!!!
I'm not sure if that's supposed to be a good thing or not. My face feels like it is on fire but it is warming to say the least.

Well that is all I have to blabber about right now so cya
Don't forget the real reason of Good Friday and Easter

The Stylish Award/Tag

Eldra on her blog A Day on Daremo tagged me with the Stylish Blogger award. I thank ye Eldra :) But there are some things I have to do to 'offically receive it'. First...

1. Thank the person who awarded me!
Uhh, see the top of the post. JK. Thanks Eldra!

2. Write seven thins about myself.

- I enjoy snowboarding but don't like winter. Love summer but don't like the heat (meaning over 30 degrees Celsius)

- I am the only person in my family who is a middle child. My mom and dad are both oldest in their family's. Eldra is the oldest female and the oldest of three and Goose is the oldest - and only - male. That makes ME the only middle child!

- I am a hockey fan. The Calgary Flames ALL THE WAY! Pittsburgh Penguins ar tied with Calgary for my favorite team though. Teams like Vancouver Knuckle Heads, Detroit Lame Wings, and Toronto Fail Leafs are all in my worst team box. Don't get me started on Vancouver though...:)
 
- I want to try surfing even if I'm not an athletic person

- I am a Hoodie, T-shirt and Jeans type girl. But if I had places to wear them, I would LOVE to wear really fancy dresses! Super fancy or Casual :)

- I have ALWAYS wanted to fly. Just jump off of the ground and soar with the birds...or Pegasus..or dragons...

Delays...annoying things

Hi y'all, this goes out to the winners of our contest (Eldras and mine)
I am sorry to announce that I will not be able to do your drawings right away. I broke the fingernail on my first finger of my right hand. I bent the nail about half way up and it broke apart a third of the way in.
It's my main drawing finger. The one that leads all my drawings. WHY NOW! Stupid dishwasher
My mom said it would take a few weeks to heal, but hopefully I will be able to do something about that.
I am soooooooo sorry for the delay. I promised that this time I would get your drawings to you sooner but it looks like it is not to be :(
As soon as I am able to draw I will get them done!

Sorry, sorry, sorry

Just thought it was worth taking a picture of to share it with you guys.

What A Way To Start The Day

This is just a quick post

I wake up, go upstairs and get a glass of water. Lo-and-behold I see this leaf in the sink. To my surprise it looks just like a dragon! Goose said it looks like a swan but it TOTALLY looks like a dragon!
Doesn't it?
I HAD to take a picture of it.

Top Ten Things on My Mind - A Tag

I am finally getting onto the TTTOMM tag (don't ask me why I only did the initials)
Here we go!

1. TRON: Legacy
 We just got our confirmation email that TRON: Legacy was being shipped to us! *Squeals*  SO EXCITED!

2. Celtic Woman
A band with WONDERFUL voices. Nice Celtic music :) LOVE THEM


3. Tangled
We rented Tangled and it is just as funny as they say. GO RENT IT! Hilarious but sweet




4. Digital Art School
I CAN'T WAIT TO GO TO COLLAGE! 'Nuf said

5. Wacom Tablets
Just something I'm saving up for. It's like a GIANT track pad only you have a stylist with it. Kind of a digital sketch book. Tried it, now I'm hooked on it :)


6. LOLZ Cat Pictures
LOL I am in love with this picture

Rubber Ducky, you're the one. Rubber Ducky, you're so fun. Haha so CUTE!


7. YouTube
I recently got a YouTube account and have posted quite a few of my music videos and some speed drawings.



8. Thousand Foot Krutch DVD
I JUST LEARNED THAT ON JUNE 7TH TFK IS RELEASING THEIR DVD. THE COOL PART ABOUT THAT IS THAT ELDRA AND I ARE IN THE DVD! Well, sort of. I know we are in the crowd but you probably won't even see us...I'm mumbling again arnt I?


9. Teaching Art
I am going to start teaching art. Once I get some students that is...

10. Adobe Photoshop CS5
If I had the cash I would buy it. That (and about 500 other things)

Music Tag. I finally DID IT!

This tag's been making its rounds the past week, and I think I've been tagged at least twice. Or more.
List 10 artists you love, in no particular order (before looking at the questions below).


1. Thousand Foot Krutch
2. Celtic Woman
3. Jesse Cook
4. Skillet
5. Deviations Project
6. Disciple
7. RED
8. Daft Punk
9. tobyMac
10. Pillar




1. What was the first song you ever heard by 6?
Probably 'The Wait is Over'...not sure though

2. What's your favorite song by 8?
There is many I like but my favorite has to be Derezzed

 3. What's the impact 1 has left on your life?
WOW! They have left quite a big impact on my life. I met them and they really enjoyed the artwork I did. It was AWESOME! :)

4. What is your favorite lyric of 5's?
It is an instrumental band. No lyrics

5. How many times have you seen 4 live?
Just once. I wish it was more than once but they don't come often enough near to where I live

6. What is your favorite song of 7?
Ohhhh, that is hard...I have a three way tie....na it is too hard to decide.

7. Is there any song of 3 that makes you sad?
Probably 'Down Like Rain'

8. What's your favorite song by 9?
Ooooo that is also a hard one...Probably 'Extreme Days' or 'Tonight'

9. How did you first get into 2?
I have always LOVED Celtic music but haven't found a band that does nice Celtic music (My name is Celtic) But it was Daddyscowgirl94 that got me hooked. I saw that she put Celtic Woman in her favorites list. I had heard of them before that but hadn't looked into them.

10. How did you first get into 3?
My mom and dad really liked Jesse Cook and I have always listened to his stuff ever since I was little. He does really neat songs.

11. Whats your favorite song by 4?
ARGH! SO HARD TO CHOOSE! No, currently Hero (The Legion of Doom Remix) has to be my favorite song by them right now.

12. How many times have you seen 9 live?
None actually. I wish I could have seen him back on his album 'Momentum'. That would have been cool.

13. What is a good memory concerning 10?
Hmmm, the only memory that I can remember is back 3 years ago at Christmas time I learned about 'Turn it Up'. It even now gives me tingly feelings when I listen to it. But I don't particularly love the song O_o

14. Are there any songs from 8 that makes you sad?
YES! Tron Legacy: End Titles. It means that the movie's OVER!

15. What is your favorite song of 1's?
Again, another hard decision but I'll have to say 'The Invitation - Welcome to the Masqerade'

16. How did you become a fan of 10?
I don't really know. I just have always listened to them.

If you have read this and not already done the tag, I tag you!

THE WINNERS HAVE BEEN DECIDED....DA-DA-DA-DA

Check out Eldra's post on who the winners are or if you have just come from there than don't go back. Well go back meaning don't go there to see...oh never mind :) You get what I mean...I hope

I know, kinda of a let down as you were expecting me to announce the winners :) MWA-HA-HA-HA-HA -_- It is not so...

But I personally want to thank all of you who entered into the contest. It has been quite a month, adding up the votes and such. I thank ye.
Now here comes the hard part. You (the winners, even thought you don't know if you have won yet or not) have to decide on what you want me to draw!
Unlike last time, I will be quicker to get you're pieces done.
Last contest it took me quite a long time to complete Whisper's winning piece. It was of two full bodied people, of a woman with a rapier standing over a ranger girl with her sword point resting on the ranger-girl's neck. It took me a long time because I am quite terrible at doing full bodied people. The drawing I created from a section of a story she and her friends wrote (If I am correct). A wonderful description that she gave me, but I was at fault. But I have learned since then.
So if it is possible, please no full bodied people for me to draw unless there is nothing else you want done. It will probably take me quite a while for me to get it done if that is what you want.
I am sorry to say that I will not be sending the original pieces to you. For the moment it is out of my budget range. That may change but for the moment it is not so.

Again, thanks for entering and I am looking forward to getting you're ideas.
