I have no space, no room to move around...

and this box is getting smaller, I'm trying to get out. How did I get so far from where i was? when did I decide to lose my way? Who have I become?"...Have you heard that song? New Low by MC Rut..Great song. It is on my playlist if you wanna have a listen. Around one of the last songs.

Well I am feeling a little better. I have been losing weight again. 72 pounds so far. I have been going on walks twice a night. Once with the kids and once when hubs gets home from school. My little one grabbed a big leaf off the ground and was carrying it around. I asked him what he was going to do with it and he said he was going to take it home and jump on it so he could hear it crunch. I thought that was so cute. He did just that too. Once we hit the porch he put it down ever so gently and then jumped up in the air and landed on the leaf. He did that about 10 times till it crunched never more! HAHAHA! Silly boy.

I have almost all my stuff for the magazine done. Did I mention they are looking for talent to publish? Come on girls submit! I haven't seen any of you do it yet. I know I have a talented bunch of online friends so get on it! Make sure to put Marie Ramirez somewhere on there when you do. You have till NOV 1ST.

OHHOHOHOHOH I'm so excited Dina's class started today! YAY! I just gotta go get some gesso so I can do my "Homework". If I had that kind of homework in school I would been a straight A student hehe! Seriously all she is freakin talented beyond words. If you are taking the class let me know! Then we can sit together *wink*.

I posted the new Mojo challenge. I made something kind of weird. It is a diorama and on the sheet music is typed the legend of Bloody Mary. She was a witch that was stealing the little girls youth to make her look young again. They ended up hanging her and she cursed anyone who said her name in a dark mirror. That was one of my childhood legends/ghost stories that I was scared of. I never would say it and even to this day I wont. I don't scare easily believe me but that is some stuff you just don't mess with lol!

I bought those tiny lights at big lots one year. I didn't know what I was going to use them for but I knew it had something to do with scrappin. I also used the maya roads tin for the case. I don't think it is done yet but we will see.

TIP: For the tree I first painted it purple then let it dry. After it was dry I used ordinary white glue painted that on and then immediately painted over that with black. That's what gives it the crackle effect. CHEAP and EASY! Learned that in my crafting days for furniture and picture frames. The reason why it looks white on the trunk is i also used diamond glaze over that and it wasn't dry when I took the pic...

Ok last but not least my scary movie list.Here are the movies I have been watching this October.Based on 0-5 stars.

The cradle- Scare~ story~*
This movie was weird and well weird. If you have nothing else to watch then watch it.

Reeker- Scare~* Story~** 1/2
Now remember it takes a lot to scare me. The story was very interesting. I really liked the end. Worth watching.

Mortuary- Scare~** Story~***
I liked the story. Very different. I would watch it again.

Dark Ride- Scare~* 1/2 Story~**
The end was weird and lame. The rest was ok.

The ROOST- Scare~* Story~*
OK This was pretty lame. Not a big fan of this one. It is about bats...Yeah cgi bats.

Dead Birds- Scare~** Story~***
I really liked this movie. I would watch it again. Very very interesting and creepy. The end was pretty cool. Western setting back in the civil war era.

Wind Chill- Scare~** Story~***
This was a cool concept. In fact I haven't seen it done like this before. Really liked the story.

The Strangers- Scare~*** Story~***
I loved this movie. Something about reality scares the SH*& out of me! The people in this movie were messed up! Mental torture. Seriously a good movie.

Dead One- Scare~1/2 Story~**
This has Wilbur valderama in it. Neat story but it wasn't a strong scary movie for me. Worth watching tho if you like day of the dead stories.

Brutal- Scare~* Story~**
This one was interesting. Little cheese but interesting.

The fog- Scare~** Story~***
Again I loved this movie. It was pretty neat. The end was sooo wrong!

SAW 4- Scare~* Story~**
I like these movies for the gore factor and the genius torture devices. I mean come on you gotta hand it to the creator of these things!

I know I have watched more but I forgot to write the names down. I have a ton on my dvr to watch so there will be more. Oh yes there will be lol!

Share some scary movies with me that you think are worth watching. To me all scary movies are worth watching so share away!

I also watched other movies this weekend. Don't mess with the Zohan...FUNNY! Lake View Terrace- AWESOME! Loved this movie. Iron Man- Ok I'm sure you all have seen it but it was wicked great! I hope they do another one. I have Love Guru waiting, Run Fat Boy Run, forgetting Sarah Marshall, Grace is gone and What happens IN Vegas...Oh did I mention I seen Baby's mama? OMG that was sooo good. Ok enough with the movies lol!

Hope you all are enjoying fall and its fabulous colors!

Jane says have you seen my wig around?

So I am finally gonna blog my RVK creations. I just haven't been feeling like blogging. That roller coaster is still going strong. BLAH! Oh well on with life. Here is what I did with the fab kit Rachel put together. Did I mention I ♥ her? Well I do. hehehe!

I have tons of pics of the banner on my Flickr if you want to see close ups and what not. I love the skull beads and the plastic Halloween rings I used on the tail.

Me and my cousin Lisa (who passed away about 6 years ago) on Halloween. Another one of my mom's awesome handmade costumes for me (belly dancer). Lisa is wonder woman. My mom is holding the camera in the background. I actually remember that costume.

My son and daughter hiding in the small pantry cabinet. So silly! It was a huge pic but i cut the bottom part off.

This is me about 2ish. I'm sure you all have seen one of these pics. I think I am gonna give this one to my mom.

This page has me my dad and my two cousins. I don't have many pics of my dad and I together. He was and is one of those dads that comes around (if your lucky) once a year. I'm not bitter... LOL!

We went to the pumpkin patch on fri. It was good fun I must say. My calves still hurt from all the walking. Stupid camera battery went dead half way thru the day. GRRRR! Oh well such is life I guess. We walked thru the pumpkin maze and made it to the end. I made the kids do a silly pose.

I love that pic. While walking along we seen some fungus growing on the corn. They use it in some Mexican dishes. I hear it tastes like corn...Go figure.

We shot pumpkins out of a "gun". Kids really enjoyed that.

Went through the haunted house. That was really cool. My two sons were scared (4 and 8) but my daughters loved it (6 and 12) hehehe! We went through about 4 times.

We went on a hay ride and a train ride around the grounds and through the corn. That's when I didn't have my camera. I posted some of the pics on flickr but I haven't finished editing them yet so more to come.

Halloween is only 15 days away! I'm watching tons of scary movies and next time I post I'll give you some reviews on them. Have a great roller coaster ride!

I dont wish you hurt

I feel sad...Just sad. Have you ever had one of those weeks? Those months? Those years? Well I've been having one of those for awhile now and I just want it to stop.
Jane let me off this crazy thing! Something wonderful will happen then 10 terrible things. I mean is there no balance? Ugh sometimes I feel like Eeyore! Glum gloomy doom! How can I not...

This song sums up my feelings right now.

by smashing pumpkins

hug me, hug me again
hug me, hug me again
when will it start to sway
when will it start to
almost break you

hug me, hug me again
hug me, hug me again

i'll miss you
i don't wish you hurt
i forgive you
i don't wish you away,
away, away

it'll almost break you
almost take you
almost break you
almost break you up

Anyway the new Mojo is up. My page I threw together real quick like. I made it with the RVK I just got on sat.

That is me at about 4. My mom made that Halloween costume. She made a lot of my costumes. Most kids probably woulda hated that but not me...It is a memory that i hold near to my heart. I wish I had every one of those costumes. Although the face paint is a little weird! Who ever seen a red faced clown? lmao!

I made a Halloween banner last night with the kit and another page. I should be done with everything by tmw. Theresa has her stuff done and Jen. I posted both their works. Lovely lovely stuff.

Going to the pumpkin patch on fri with the kids and Crystal (cousin) and her gang. Haunted house and corn maze here we come! I hope it isn't to hot. BLAH! Ginger yes the one off I-5. :)
