Butterfly Absorption

Ahhh! It’s been a while since I’ve posted… But here is a new piece!

The colors I wanted to use for the picture were very deep and vibrant. I’m not done with golding it up yet! But, I wanted to post it anyway. 🙂

It started from this:

To this:

And then, of course, to the top picture you saw… 🙂

I ask myself if maybe I should have kept it solid white, but I like the gold on the bits of it. Hmm..

Well, things are getting better around here! I’ve been busier than usual…job searching and all. 😉 (I didn’t mention that to you yet)

I’ve worked for my dad for about a year now, but now its time to move on to even greener pastures. I think it will be better this way anyway, ya know? It’ll give us more fun bonding time and less work mind set since we won’t be working together. All is good. All is good.

I’ll part ways for now! I’ll be back.*

Have a good Wednesday!

Casual Monday’s

Monday, June 26th 2017

Today was a Monday, for sure. Slow yet accurately completed. Today I did a lot of physical work to prepare two cars we have to sell.  The summer heat wasn’t too bad today but the bullets still came in sweats.

I got one photo of a car I washed and was pretty excited with the finished shine… Look at the cloud reflection! <3

Tomorrow I will be waxing both and then I’ll be done. D O N E. *whew*

Earlier I also went to the dentist for the regular cleaning and in the waiting room I stumbled upon a magazine with a really FREAKING GORGEOUS shoe photo. JUST LOOK AT THIS. It’s totally my style guys. Golden rococo swirls with black velvet and bling bling. Come. to. mama.

Anyways, hope you’ve all had a nice Monday! I’ll be doing some art hopefully tomorrow. 😉 I’ll keep up to date~

A Bounty of Burleson

I took these on Sunday, June 18th 2017

This is a late post since some of my family is in town visiting from California! It’s been off the wall a bit around here~

For fathers day we went to an amazing chicken place in Burleson called Babes. The inside of the restaurant was too dark for me to take any good photos, though. Basically, its themed inside as a little, hometown, country village. My fave part was when we went dawdling around the town while we waited for them to call us to be seated.

Here are some photos of the architecture and art I got:

I loved these walls wayyyy too much. And they were actually little lofts…

 

This town is so cute and cozy. If it were a little bit bigger I might consider moving there.

Hope you all had a grand fathers day.’ Tood-loo!

Trip to Dublin

I can’t even begin with how much fun I had in Dublin with my mom and cousins… It was about 95 degrees and so worth it. <3

Also, a few new additions to my plant children happened…

The whitest one you see is called “Silverdust”. I thought it was so gorgeous and it made me think of puppy chow with how it looks like it has powdered sugar dusted on top.

The bottom greener ones are two different types of Ivy. One is English and the other is Californian.

The one at the very top didn’t come with a tab name, but I couldn’t resist. Then you have a succulent… which are just, adorable.

The store we went into reminded me a lot of Best Buy… but I forget the name of the place. They had so many amazing deals!! I’m actually wearing the shirt I got yesterday right now… Let me snap a pic!

You know, I also met Jar Jar. I was really surprised. But, he acted as if he were a bit tongue tied or something. Maybe he was nervous?

The rest you will see were art pieces and decor that I took pics of that really caught my eye..

And this antique home, that was remodeled into a chocolate house, had very cute bathroom decor. I just had to share~

😀 I so loved this mirror frame. My cousin told me that the wall plug in that bathroom was gilted and I had no idea what that meant… But I was so happy to find out that it was another word for stucco or rococo style, which I adore. Yay for vocabulary! Hehe~

Look at this adorable little mouse. <3

This was in the front of the building.

And this is a wall painting that caught my eye as we were driving fast… Sorry for the photo quality~

Have a lovely Friday all! Hope you enjoyed these pictures.*

Finding What Was Lost

Tuesday, June 13th 2017

Just a small post to announce something amazing that happened today:

This is literally a miracle, from The Lord Himself, to me. My purse was lost for a full month. I set my mind to believe that it was stolen. My ID was even in it as well and I can’t tell you how worried I was at first that my identity would be stolen. I decided to just hand it fully over to G-d. If I ever found it, wonderful. If I never did, wonderful. Either way I made sure to know that it would be alright and that I would just patiently wait for it to turn up. This morning I got a call, but I was asleep and couldn’t answer. They left a voicemail saying that they had found it on the back of a bathroom door in the veterinarian clinic I had been training at. Such a thrill came over me and I was speechless to hear it. <3

G-d is good, all the time. Even when we may be going through hard times. Even very hard times, He is always faithful if we continue to follow Him and trust in Him.

P.S. Here is what the purse looks like… I love the gold tiger. How would you have figured I like the gold part? 😉

Have a grand Tuesday!

Waterpark Adventures!

Monday, June 12th 2017

Monday, Monday, Monday… Today I’ll be going to the waterpark with friends around 3pm! ~

As for now I’ll be working on some tasks for my part time job. On the side, I do administrative assistant work for my dad and his business! I won’t tell you too much about it since it may bore you, but basically I clean servers, calculate numbers for blogs, call in to schedule meeting rooms for dad, pick up and drop off certain business things, ect… I do enjoy it. <3

Here is the Queen Duchess sitting with me while I work. She knows whats up. She’s the smartest chihuahua in the world. 😉

Finally back from the waterpark! Sadly, I didn’t take any photos…

So for that, I went outside and snapped a pic of the cute pretzel float my mom got! It may not look very large in this photo, but its pretty huge.

Today I added some tabs to the diary page in the menu to better organize my posts and life in general, hehe.

If I haven’t mentioned yet, I recently was in a fender bender. (About 2-3 weeks ago) Sooo thankful that I wasn’t injured. It was one of the scariest things that’s happened in a long time. Ever since then I was told that my car is totaled and that I need to be looking for another vehicle. We know a lady thats one of the best car searchers out there. She’s been finding a few, but some are out of my price range. Having no car can be hectic now and then but, I know it’ll all work out. 😉

As for now, I’ll bid you all a good rest of your day~ Tahtah!
