Caving into social media

seeing this picture makes me smile every time 
So I have caved in, I have gotten a tumblr...another blog! I am still trying to figure out how to use it, but by Christmas break I will have perfected it! I promise!

It is so important to be plugged into so many social medias. So I decided to get plugged into another one. Apparently it is a good thing to get plugged into. I am going to try my best to keep up with everything I have and school, haha!

I titled it, "it's the small things in life," because I believe that the small things make everyone happy and happiness is the best thing and a key to a good life. Kinda cheesy, but really! So I feel like by having this tumblr it is positive and will be happy! Who couldn't enjoy a mix of happy things and dreams?

DIY Easy Masterpiece, That Can Never Be Messed Up- Crayon Melted Canvas

Crayon Melted Canvas Art.
My boyfriend's manly colored masterpiece

Best date/girl's night idea! (my boyfriend thought this project was so fun!) This could even be a birthday party idea. Or maybe just because. You don't need a reason to craft! Seriously, it is so fun and super easy to do! It takes as little or as much time as you want it to take! It took me about 30 minutes to perfect my canvas just the way I wanted it too. I could have easily finished it quicker or even taken my time. There is no way you can mess this art project up. You only need a few simple things and to follow a few simple steps!

Crayons (We used 120 crayons for about 2 canvases)
Hot glue gun
Hot glue
Blow dryer

My girly colored masterpiece

  1. Set up the crayons at the top of the canvas they way you would like it
  2. Hot glue the crayons to the top edge of the canvas
  3. Once they are hot glued down, turn your blow dryer on high heat and watch the crayons melt their colors down the canvas
  4. Tilt the canvas to have your colors run down the way you'd like them to (even use the blow dryer to help)
  5. Once you have it the way you like, you need to let it dry for a few minutes and it is ready to hang!

The nice thing about this project is that even if the next day you don't like the way the colors ran down the canvas, you can always plug the hair dryer back in and blow the colors they way you like them. This project can never be messed up! It is impossible and always looks good! Enjoy this fun and easy project!

Hate Miley or Team Miley?

 I am writing a Facebook Hate paper on Miley Cyrus, what is your personal opinion on Miley Cyrus. There are so many Facebook "hate" groups about her. What is your personal opinion? Do you have a personal opinion? If you don't like her, why? Do you have 7 reasons you hate her? (just playing off the song haha) I would love your feedback. I know we all have our personal opinions on everything. But should we post public things about this stuff? It can be hurtful and bring people down. Just things to think about! But please share your personal opinions, it would help me write this is a final for my college Journalism course!
