10 things about Moi

Hey Hey Hey...Long time no blog!

I have been CRAZILY painting canvases and sewing flowers for an upcoming local markets, thus having next to none bloggy time. I'm sooooo excited about all the new flowers I'm little shop will be closed over the christmas break....and then back in the new year with lot's of new "prettier, Blingier, more adult styles" as well as my usual funky bright designs!

So awhile ago I mentioned I'm not just wanting to blog about scrapping. 1: Because, while I LOVE scrapping, I really don't have nearly as much time as I used to to dedicate to it. 2: I am passionate about so many other things 3: A blog is as good a place as any to ramble on.....good therapy I think ; )

So today I thought I would do a blog post about me......I always wonder,WHO is the person behind the blog post, I love getting to know more about you?

10 Things about MOI!

  • You probably already know this, but I'm a LOVER not a fighter. I absolutely try my best to not judge and see the best side of everyone. I do NOT like those silly pinterest quotes I'm always seeing on Facebook about "Karma being a bitch and getting people back" and stuff like that....I respect others rights to say/do what they want, I just think there's far to much negativity and passive aggressiveness out there!  WE ALL HAVE FAULTS, so therefore we REALLY need to cut each other some slack. Oh and don't get me wrong.....I struggle big time sometimes with not judging and seeing the light in people, BUT I make an effort, and really thats all we can do! Love and Peace xox

  • I don't drive. SHOCK HORROR!!! People DO NOT understand this. I am constantly having to justify myself. Quite often I have been in tears because someone has told me how "lazy & pathetic" I am. Or I get "What happens if Elijah really needed to go to the hospital, you couldn't drive him" Ummmm I would call an most would in an emergency......My phobia is driving, maybe I will get over it one day, maybe I won't. I'm still me : )

  • I'm a bit of a geek. I love comics, Star Wars, computer games, transformers. I had a misspent youth and can name pretty much every x-files episode there ever was. I love british humour.......Red dwarf, The young Ones, Bottom, Men behaving badly. The only american comedy I heart is the big bang theory....Sheldon is redonkulously HILARIOUS. 

  • Jesus is my homeboy! Thats right, you heard me, I have a faith and it's what keeps me going on this planet! I believe having a faith is an intensely personal thing, and while I believe Loving God is FREAKIN AWESOME, I would NEVER EVER dream of forcing it down someones throat. It's all about Love and Peace  man xox

  • My FAVE band in the whole wide world is Linkin Park. I do not care if they cool/dorky or too mainstream (yeah talking to the HIPSTERS out there) or whatever......I LOVE them and they can do no wrong in my eyes.

  • I only eat free range meat & eggs. If it's not free range....I just go without. Each to their own with this one. I'm just a guilt tripper and hate the thought of animals going through unnecessary pain/stress. 

  • When I was a teenager I was a metal head. I used to have pictures of bands on my wall that would now give me nightmares. I rocked all different colours of hair.....purple, red, pink, bright blue & dark blue (Note: Blue is cool...until you wash it and it starts fading and turning a lovely mouldy green colour) I had my eyebrow, tongue, lip & many parts of my ears pierced. I used to wear army print shorts and Korn t-shirts. I thought I was all that was cool, I'm pretty sure I just looked like the very definition of teenage angst. I think I speak for my self (and my mother) when I say that era is most definitely OVER.

  • I've always been arty. I did TEE art at school and have taken so many different classes over the years. I have always felt at home with paints and a canvas. I cannot draw to save myself!

  • I'm awkward. I get nervous in social situations and word vomit. I say odd things and get lots of raised eyebrows. I've grown to be ok with just means I have character......right???

  • I hate sports. Don't mind watching the footy on tv....just HATE playing sports. Would much rather be reading a book or painting or having my teeth ripped out.......I'm far to awkward and clumsy for sports. Inpromtu  game of beach cricket at a family/friend for most......nightmare for me : )
OK well there you you know how ODD I am : )
I understand if you decide to never read my blog again LOL

Would love to know more about all my readers...why don't you post 10 random things about you??

Love and Peace xox

great post Jess...enjoyed reading all about you! We have a few things in common...
1.Jesus...Yay Sister!
and 2. Driving. Well, i have my licence and can drive...but i can not drive in the city! It freaks me out. Which means hubby always drives if we're in Perth. And even then he tells me to pull out a book and read...and just don't look!! Stupid, i know :):)
