Survive A Horror Film Crate

Man Crate is a company offering crates for guys, things they’d want to receive as a gift. The guy receiving the crate doesn’t have to have a crowbar to open the box, don’t worry they receive it with the box. Oh and it’s not a box, it’s a wooden crate. No lies though, I want a wooden crate that has to be opened with a crowbar.

The people at Man Crate asked me what I would want to survive a horror movie. After long thought, this post is what I want.

Horror films come in all kinds. You have the supernatural, slasher, “monster”, zombie and the list goes on.

No matter what kind of horror is your favorite you need a few things to survive the movie.

If you were in any kind of horror film, what would you want to make surviving a little easier?

Please don’t think ‘Cell phone, I would want that’. Why? Because you know within seconds of pulling out a phone something is going to happen to destroy it.

I’m going to break it down into the top five items I would want if I was trying to survive a horror film.

Everything Fall

Horror Pack

First I want to talk about something neat I came across while just randomly looking through things online. You all know I do love a great subscription box and the horror themed one I used to get just didn’t excite me. I think that’s mainly due to the fact I’m not a huge fan of current horror.

What can I say, I love what I grew up with.

If Only I Was A Star Sewn Into The Sky

Tirck Or Treating

Happy Halloween!!

Okay I know I’m a little late, but it’s never too late (or early) to celebrate Halloween. ^_^ The picture is of my niece and I before we went trick or treating. They held trick or treating in my town on the 30th – which was good because it was raining and windy on Halloween.

I was a bear, she was a cow. I’m guessing she’s never been around anyone wearing tights before because she kept rubbing them – they were warm tights so they did feel different then regular tights.

Candy Haul

This is my candy haul! Yes, MY. I originally was just going up to the houses with my niece, helping her up steps and such. In the end people was putting candy into the bag I was holding. The bag I was holding was just to dump her bucket into once it got to heavy for her to carry. I guess my height comes in handy! ^_^

Batman

On Halloween I was out with my younger brother’s girlfriend and my niece. We took her to the mall to buy my younger brother something for his birthday – she’s only two so it’s more like us picking something. Anyways we picked a pizza up to bring home and as we passed the square in town there was a guy dressed like Batman waving at cars! We went around the block so I could get my camera out and take pictures. I really wanted to get out and have a picture taken with him, but it started raining.

Does anyone have a great recipe that calls for sausage? No I haven’t gone back to eating meat. I have half a tube of vegan sausage that I need to use within the next few days. I know there’s a casserole my mom used to make when we were younger that calls for sausage and I loved it – I’m just looking for some different ideas. ^_^

The reason I have half a tube of sausage is due to the fact that today is my younger brother’s birthday. So for his birthday dinner he wanted lasagna – so I picked up vegan sausage to put in mine.  I also picked up some vegan bacon, it’s a brand I’ve never had so I’m kind of excited to try it out. Best part of all is I got a few packets of noodles I can eat – just something quick when I don’t feel like cooking.

Over the past week I’ve been working non-stop on my Sweet Lolita cosplay. I made a bonnet within a day. I’m glad to say I’m so close to being finished with the skirt, finally! The skirt has been a work in progress for months. Earlier today I finished up sewing all the lace on the skirt. The only thing that’s left is sewing on ribbon. I’m not adding a lot of ribbon so it won’t take that long. Then next week I’m hoping to get close to finishing up the top. I used a vest as a pattern, it’s all sewn together and the sleeves are on – I just have to add buttons to the front then figure out how to fix it since it’s so low cut. I’m thinking of getting a white t-shirt to wear under it and adding big ruffles to the front.

This week I’ll be adding a few things my mom has made to my Etsy Shop [LINK]. I don’t know what all she’s making or the price of the items yet. I haven’t added any new items to the shop lately because I want to kind of sell at least two things that are in the shop now.

Well I’m going to grab something to eat and get back to sewing.

It’s Just A Little Bit Of Blood

Listening To: Paper Chaser by White Wives

What a weekend!

Friday started off with having to do some running around town. Last minute things.

Nose Ring

The major thing I had to do was get a new nose ring. I still have no clue where my other one went to. I’ve searched the bathroom and my bedroom floor. But I did find this great red flower nose ring! I love it, but the jewelry is larger then the other I wore. So far I haven’t had any major problems with it. It just took me a while to get used to it. Jason only hit it once, haha.

And since I haven’t done it for a while, outfit picture!

Outfit

This is what I wore Friday night. ^_^

The other thing I had to do was to grab some double sided tape for my Halloween costume. And finally – Halloween costume pictures!

Halloween Costume

So the costume was suppose to be a belly dancer, though I realized when my hair dyed it was more like The Little Mermaid. =_= Oh well, in the end I think it was a great costume no matter what people thought I was. So much work went into that top though – I have to find a reason to wear it again.

Friday night Jason picked me up and we went back to his place to make a little shopping list for what we needed because we were planning on making a couple things for the Halloween party Saturday. So we made the list and went shopping to grab what we needed.

We spent Friday night baking vegan cupcakes and making the sugar candy for the top of the cupcakes. We didn’t mess with the topping for the cupcakes until Saturday afternoon. The cupcakes weren’t finished until around 2am. So we were both tired and just wanted to go to bed.

Saturday shortly after we woke up we had to run to a few stores to grab a few things. I grabbed almost two yards of sheer green fabric to finish my costume off. They also had their Halloween items already 70% off so I grabbed a candy mold. I was looking for the ones you put pretzel rods in and couldn’t find one around here, with the 70% off I spent $1.19 on the one I grabbed.

We did stop at a smoothie place too. Yum! I got a soy peach smoothie. So good.

When we got back to his place we started working on the topping for the cupcakes, well he did that while I made lunch.

Cupcakes

Here’s the cupcakes we made! Chocolate cupcakes with a basic icing, cherry “blood” and a piece of “glass” – 100% vegan. These were a load of fun to make with him, as always I loved sharing that time with him.

The party was a lot of fun, though near the end I started feeling like crap.

Sunday was spent sleeping and watching movies. ^_^

As always, I’m bummed the weekend is over. I was just enjoying being with Jason, it’s always a good time. I just keep finding more and more reasons I like him as much as I do.

Today was spent sleeping in, and watching movies. I haven’t felt that great all day. I don’t know what’s going on. Ugh. Just hoping I feel better tomorrow. Tomorrow I’m hoping to get a couple new items in my shop.

I was going to write a bit about a film I watched today, but eh, I’ll write about it and rate it tomorrow. I just want to get in bed.

Got Me Twisted All Out Inside

New Hair Color

First: New hair color! ^_^ Okay so it’s not a new hair color for me to use, but it’s new considering how long it’s been since I’ve had it this color. I have to say it feels amazing to have this color back. ^_^ Tomorrow I’m going to have the sides shaved and maybe a little length taken off.

Oh and I have to buy a new nose ring. I have a nose ring in but it’s an old one. See I guess it got stuck on my shirt when I took it off…no idea where it went to.

Since the weekend I’ve been sick with a dang cold. It was like just within minutes I was sick. I am feeling better then I had been though. My nose and throat are the two main issues. My nose is just stuffy, my throat hurts.

Yesterday when I went out to get the hair dye and something else I did pick up some lemon green tea bags. So I’ve been having hot tea every day.

Apple Pie Cookies

Saturday I made apple pie cookies. The picture above is an example of what the ones I made look like. The following picture is the two my niece made.

Apple Pie Cookies

Even though I’ve been sick this week I’ve still been hard at work on a few things.

I did finally get something like a closet! Okay so really it’s a bookcase, but at least I have a place to put my clothes. So I started working on that over the weekend. I pretty much have all my clothing in the bookcase, now I just have to finish cleaning where my clothing was. I was also forced to get rid of a lot of clothing because of lack of space – but it was a good thing.

I’ve also been sewing on my Halloween costume. Today I finished the skirt and belt. Tomorrow I’m going to finish my top – which is just adding an additional strap to it. ^_^

And the major thing I’ve been looking forward to for months…MY ETSY SHOP! Right now I don’t really have a lot on there. A few tote bags, earrings, nothing major. I’ve just waiting to get some business going before I fill the shop with more items. If there’s anything you’d like to see in my shop, let me know! ^_^

I do have a side order of a set of navy earrings, patriotic scarf and patriotic tote bag to finish getting together. The Scarf is finished, but the earrings I messed up. I kind of forgot they were in the oven and well…they look dead. Haha. I’m going to do them tomorrow while I’m cutting out the pieces to the tote bag.

And if you want a custom tote bag, it does cost more then the ones I already have finished – because I have to buy the fabric and some cotton is $10/yard. For a custom tote bag I’ll have to charge $25 to $35 (shipping included).

Since I have my bank account all worked out this means I have a paypal – so I’m totally willing to do orders beyond the etsy shop. ^_^ Shipping is just going to cost a lot if you’re outside the US.

Also I should have my photo gallery finished up by the end of the week, so I’ll be posting that link. It’s just a photo gallery of all my concert pictures and so far all the pictures I’ve taken this year.

And You Look Into My Eyes

Well, I know I had a great weekend. Except for Friday.

Friday was spent driving around the county because my brother doesn’t think things through. Which has come to be normal. Ugh.

Saturday though Jason and I went to a benefit a couple of his friends (and one of their girlfriends) was working at. It was fun. ^_^

After the benefit we went to downtown Kent to look at some of the shops. All I can say is I hope we have a chance to go back when I have some money on me so I can grab a couple things for Christmas.

The one shop is called Off The Wagon [LINK]. It’s this great little place that has…a little of everything. I seen a lot of things that would make great Christmas gifts. Not to mention I seen a few things that I wouldn’t mind having.

We had to grab something to drink, so we went to Tree City Coffee [LINK]. They have cases of sweets that all looked so good. But we were just there to get drinks. I got a small black tea – so good.

Then we stopped at this place that only sold alcohol. I’m not a big drinker, but it was just cool to look at all the bottles. That was until I seen pumpkin wine. I’m kind of kicking myself for not getting  a bottle. I want to look around here to see if I can find any.

We then met his friends at one of their homes, then went out for dinner with them. We went to The Winking Lizard Tavern [LINK]. Great food! Though their menu is kind of small if you’re looking for vegetarian (or vegan). I got a roasted veggie wrap and could only eat half.

After dinner we went back to his friends place and played a card game. We were there until about 1:30am or so and we went back to Jason’s.

Today we watched Escape From Planet Earth [LINK]. It was a cute movie, but I wish it was funnier then it was.

Before he brought me home he put some ice cream in a container. We stopped at a fast food place and for two large root beers, no ice & half food. Then we put the ice cream in our cups and have root beer floats! ^_^ It was the cutest thing ever.

Tonight I worked a bit on my Halloween costume. I figure tomorrow I’ll be totally finished with the sequins. My goal is to get it totally finished with the costume by the end of the week. Which I should be able to do. It just takes a while to get the sequins done since you’re doing them one at a time. Plus the ones I’m using now I have to sit and pick out of a pile of mixed colors…so that just adds even more time.

This week is going to be a headache for me…I’m pretty sure of it. If all goes well I’ll finally be able to open my Etsy shop mid-week. Well that’s my goal anyways. Right now though I’m just mainly going to have earrings and keychains. I’m not sure what I should put up for sale right off the bat…any ideas?

I was thinking about doing up a few scarves, even some that are two sided.

I have a headache, so I think that means I should lay down.

Sundowner

On the 26th I went to Cleveland to see Sundowner [LINK] with Jason and a few of his friends. When Jason had first mentioned I did take a listen to a song, what can I say I’m a sucker for acoustic music – as long as it’s good acoustic. And the show was at a venue I had never been to – Now That’s Class [LINK].

I had an awesome time at the song, even though I really only knew one song by heart. As usual I took a load of pictures so I had to share a few. I have the rest uploaded at my photo gallery, which is still under construction.

Yep, photo gallery. It will be so much easier to upload pictures on there and keep them up to date then it is the way I have pictures uploaded on here. My only question is what categories should I have? Right now I only have the Concert section up and done. I was considering making the main categories: Concerts, Nature, City, Countryside, Animals. There will be subcategories within those.

Aside from working quietly on the photo gallery I’ve also been busting my ass on my Halloween costume. Oh yeah! And I can finally share what I’m going to be. I’m going to be a belly dancer! ^_^ The idea sounded fun so I figured why not. I’ve made everything for my costume as well. Right now I’m in the middle of doing all the beading on the top. The colors are two shades of green and then blue. Right now I’m adding the blue beads to the top, then I have some clear ones I’m going to add on…and last of all is finishing/fixing the sequin work on the top. The other headache is the belt. On accident I put the hooks too close tot he edge so it doesn’t fit as it should.

I also have an apron I’ve been working on. The color combo is black, white & hot pink. It’s super cute and I think the person I’m making it for is going to love it. I have leftover fabric from the apron so I’m going to either make something like a tote bag or matching pot holders to go along with it all. I’m just not sure. I do have to re-cut one piece of the apron, but it won’t take that much fabric at all to re-cut what I messed up. I just didn’t measure the length right, but considering where I was cutting the fabric I’m surprised I wasn’t further off then I was.

I still have the goal of at least having an Etsy shop open by the end of the month. I haven’t given up on that yet, it’s just taking me a while to do it because I want to make sure the pictures for it are all great and everything runs smoothly with it. I also want to have a few envelopes on hand before I start selling so I don’t have to run out to stores to try to hunt them down.

This weekend started off with watching Jason and his friends play Magic [LINK]. People think I’m telling a lie when I say I like watching people play (even video games). I’ve always been a people watcher though.

After the gathering was over we cuddled and he had me watch the first episode of Continuum [LINK]. Yeah, it was new to me since I don’t really watch any channel side from Food Network [LINK] anymore. But it was a good show, I’m just not really into shows with that kind of storyline I guess.

Sunday afternoon we watched ABC’s Of Death [LINK]. Loved it! It was the first time we both had seen it. I really can’t wait for 2 to come out…but that’s not until next year! =_=

We went out for a late lunch after, then he brought me home. I’m always bummed when I know it’s time for me to come home, but it just makes me excited to see him when I see him the next time. I do think it’s good that we don’t see each other every day. It makes the time we’re together even more special.

Taking A Risk For The First Time

Listening To: Sweet Nothings by Truth Be Told

Thursday was loads of fun! Seriously, it was the best thing I’ve had out in a long time. Who knew dressing up like pirates and doing a basic pub (well bar) crawl could be as much fun as it was!

I did tell Jason before it all started that the idea of the whole night took me so far outside of my comfort zone it wasn’t even funny. But I’m glad he took me out of my comfort zone.

When it comes down to it every time he pushes me outside of my comfort zone I’m glad he does.

Friday was just as much fun…well for me it was.

Friday was just spent cuddling together. ^_^

All of last week though I was super boring while I was finishing up the last bits of my pirate costume. My computer was on the whole time so I could catch up on Supernatural episodes. I’ve finally made it to season 8, but the video I have for episode 5 won’t play on my computer for some reason!!! =_= Which means…I don’t know. It just bums me out.

Though the good thing is I enjoyed season 7 a lot more then I did season 6. Season 6 just seemed like it was the “okay we have to do this” season.

I do know I won’t be able to catch up totally by the time the new season starts, which is going to suck for me because I was planning on starting to watch it again.

Since I guess I’ve run out of Supernatural episodes to watch I’m going to hopefully watch The Raven at some point this week. I’ve had it for so long but I just haven’t felt like watching it.

So this week I’m back to costume working. This time it’s for my Halloween costume. I’m not going to say what I’m going to be until I finish the costume. I did have to sit and rework a skirt pattern for this costume due to the layers and such. Ugh. It was a headache. Good thing is the top of the costume I have my mom willing to help me at least do the major parts to do and I’ll have to do all the small pieces, which are the pieces that will take the longest – that’s why I’m starting on it this week.

I won’t totally be working on it nonstop though because I will be fitting in time to work on an apron a friend ordered from me. I have to have it mailed by the first week of November – which I should have no problem with doing it. I am kind of excited to do the fabric shopping for it.

I know Cherry Delights has been a very slow process when it comes to being able to do online ordering and such, but we’re almost there! ^_^ It’s been a lot of hard work and by the end of October – or sooner – it will all be ready! I re-took pictures of some of the first items that will be offered too – mainly earrings, hair ties and custom purses. I sat working on the logo last night and I know a lot of people won’t like it, but I freaking love it.

Talking about logo, I changed the layout! I’m sure it will be a 50/50 shot of people like it due to the fact that there’s a graphic of myself on the header. I think it’s more of me then the last layout was. I know a lot of people have a “tag line” for their blogs…I’ve been trying to think of one but I just can’t think of one that really fits me or my blog.

Tonight seems like a hot tea and hand sewing kind of night. ^_^

The weather has turned to fall and I’m not ready for it. I won’t have my quilt on my bed so I’m a little cold at night. I plan to get it on my bed tomorrow though.

I guess the only good thing about fall is the fact that it’s okay to lay in bed, watch TV (or movies) and work on little things. ^_^ During the summer if you say that’s how you’re spending a night people think you’re odd, but during cold nights it’s perfectly fine.

Today I did cut out like 100 bows to sew…I’m pretty sure it’s not 100 but it looks like it when they’re all laying in pieces. I only have six finished.
