Bracelets Made by Me

Yes, it has been a long time since I made those bracelets!  But, since some viewers were asking about them, I thought I'd better make a video.  Soon to follow, a tutorial about how to make a memory wire bracelet similar to those shown in the vid.  

When I first started putting this video together, I thought I'd give a more detailed description of them here, along with a price list.  After more thinking on the matter, I decided not to show a price list.  haha!  Pretty much chickening out on finally getting rid of these one-of-a-kind pieces.  Maybe some day.

In the meantime, enjoy the vid!  (^.^)v

#DearMe My Advice to Me! StarCat70

I've finally finished a #DearMe vid!

And of course, me being me, I picked it apart after I made it and thought about not posting it.  It seemed a little shallow in some places and maybe a little disorganized.  Still, I think the basic message is there.  Pretty much, just be yourself, be proud of who you are, be kind to people and the earth, and learn to face life fearlessly and enjoy it!

My younger years were a bit tumultuous.  I truly did not have many good friends.  And, like so many, I was teased about my weirdness.  Often after being called crazy, I'd say, "Thank you!"  It was kind of a compliment to me, because it meant I was interesting in some way.  haha!

For me, my best times were roaming around the fields near our house, or vacations with my family.  Having adventure!  

I suppose I'll just leave it at that for now.

Enjoy the vid!  (^.^)v

Updates! | Spring Break | Blender | Perfect World International

There are adventures to be had around here that don't involve a footstep out the door!

It's been spring break this week, which is almost over, sadly.  And since there has been a bit of rain, our fun had to be had inside the house.  Which is perfectly fine, because there's entertainment to be had in here!

As for me, I decided to revisit some software I hadn't used in a couple of years.  One such application, Blender, I hadn't used because I just didn't know how.  But I found some excellent tutorials, showing step-by-step, how to make things!  How cool is that?!  The tutorials are found on the YouTube channel tutor4u .

Also, I revisited Perfect World International.  This has to be one of my favorite MMORPGs.  I've been playing the game off and on for years.  I include a glimpse of it in the vid.  Such a lovely game.

Soon, we'll be getting back to the school schedule.  I hope we can wake up in the morning!  (O.o)

Enjoy the vid!

Take care out there!  (^.^)v

A Short Drive | Rain, Ice & Finally SNOW! | Allen TX March 4, 2015

Surely, I'm not alone in thinking Texas weather can be a little wacky at times.  These past two weeks are no exception to the wackiness.

We'd all been coasting along, finally enjoying some near-80 degree temps, when suddenly a blast of cold and ice happened, with a little dusting of snow.  Then, a week after that, a repeat.  Warm weather, rain, ice, snow.  All of this just a couple of weeks before spring break (that should probably be capitalized. . . all of it!. . .SPRING BREAK!!).  It's sort of like winter was pretending to happen, right up until spring was due to arrive.  Surprise!  And welcome to Texas. haha!

This short video gives an example of a day of weather transitions.

Enjoy~~ (^.^)v
