Been Feeling Crafty

I was feeling crafty tonight.
I'm pretty freaking proud of myself.

Just so you know :)

Just in case you aren't aware of what's going on, this is a picture frame with some cute scrapbook paper in it. Then you just take some dry-erase markers and have at it. I decided to make it a to-do list! Let me know what you think!

Displaying Photos: Here's Some Ideas

I love it when I find new ways to display photos. It's creative, exciting and SOOO EASY! I absolutely love pinterest just for the spark of ideas. :)

I love pinterest. It sparks so many lovely and creative ideas :) I think I will be going and purchasing some clothes pins in bulk now, just so I have them for the future. :)

does not play well with stupid people.

I hate it when people have nothing intelligent to say. I mean, I make my fair share of stupid, unintelligent, and sarcastic comments, but there's a time and a place for them. I seriously get mad at people that are just plain STUPID. I'm sorry if that's not okay with you, but in all seriousness, I'll tell you if you bug me, especially if you ask and if you want the answer to a question, I'll answer truthfully and honestly; maybe even a bit too blunt for your liking. But the upside is, if you want my opinion, you'll get it. Sometimes I come across as rude and ignorant, but that's not the case. Get to know me, and then you'll understand.

On the other hand... I need to get me one of these pins!

Exploding Spider

The past couple of times that I've been at Alex's house (which is becoming few and far between because we never have time to hang out anymore...), we've found a spider. Guess who killed them? Nope, not Alex. Not the boy. It was me. The first time it was on the wall. Being brave, as soon as I spotted the spider crawling towards the ceiling, I immediately removed my shoe and smashed it with ease. Last night Alex and I were sitting on the couch. He spotted another spider, (on the hard wood floor) but this time it was scurrying across the ground. Here's some dialogue:

Alex: (pretty calmly) Hey, there's a spider on the floor. I'm surprised that it's in such an open place. Usually they hide in corners or something.

Sav: (After spotting the spider) Oh yeah, that is a pretty ugly looking spider. I smashed the spider last time. It's your turn.

Alex: Um... no thanks.

I rolled my eyes, got off the couch, grabbed my shoe that was next to the couch and went around it in hopes of sneaking up on said spider. I skillfully succeeded in approaching it without it moving. (I have many experiences in the art of smashing spiders. Been doing it my whole life cause my dad never would.) I slowly lifted up my purple shoe, aimed carefully and threw it down on the spider. My eyes widened and to my amazement, the spider EXPLODED. Or at least that was my initial thought. It didn't make sense because the spider wasn't even that big. It wasn't your ordinary house spider, but it wasn't pretty by any means. Gross black bits were everywhere. I then realized that what had "exploded" was the bottom of my shoe. Being worn quite often, to work and everywhere else, the bottom of my shoes have gathered many miscellaneous items within the crevices of its sole (mostly including sesame seeds that have gathered from working at a sandwich shop). After realizing that the spider's death wasn't as brutal as I thought, I took my shoe, put it back next to the couch and sat down.

Then I made Alex clean it up.

Tagging in a Blog? Okay.

So this whole tagging thing is going around. Okay, I'll play. But I'm determined to give you 7 random facts that you may not particularly know, or aren't the usual facts that are shared on things like this. My goal is to hopefully share with you information that may entertain you.

  1. I had braces on for two years, one month and two days and I can honestly say that I seriously cannot really remember ever having them. Even after three oral surgeries. (Those I remember though... haha.) 
  2. Alex and I are starting to say the same things at the same time. We've even started making the same facial expressions when Mo says something silly at work. It's freaking hilarious. Especially since it's just starting and we've been good friends for about 3 years now. I can't help but laugh.
  3. I love back rubs. They're wonderful. Especially when they last for half an hour. (I have some really big knots in my back... just in case you needed to know)
  4. I own a dagger. And I bought another one and it's on its way to my house via snail mail. Don't worry, it's only a fascination so far. It isn't an obsession.... yet...
  5. I have a pen pal. But do I write her? Hardly never because I'm so terrible. This next letter is going to be terribly long. I can feel it.
  6. I don't mind cleaning and organizing things. I just have to be in the mood to do it. I find it productive and stress-relieving.
  7. Star Trek is my all-time favorite movie and it has been since I first saw it in theaters in May of 2009. Genius piece of work; from the actors to the script to the plot. Brilliance.
Done and done.
I tag... Marissa, Lauren and Chelsea (random, I know, but it works...)

Just in case you didn't know...

I LOVE photography.
I love photographing people:

  • Families

  • Couples e.g. engagements, married people, friends (even though I haven't had the opportunity yet, I'm sure I will)
  • Seniors (or any individual for that matter)

  • Children (harder, yet doable)
  • Brides

  • Dance Groups (date dances, dancing groups, singing groups, groups, I love working with a large amount of people)

To be perfectly honest, it's just flat out the best time of my life.
I've even started considering University of Utah.
If I read correctly (and I'm not being fed false information),
then they offer a Masters Degree in Photography.
Which is EXACTLY what I want.
Now don't start hating me if you're a die-hard BYU fan.
The Y is in my options too.
Just need to do a bit more researching.
It's only a matter of time when I'll have to finally decide where I'm going to go to school for the next 4-6 years. No big deal or anything.

I love what I do and I love capturing moments,
It's kind of like capturing life as you know it and then watching yourself change by comparing yourself to that moment.
I don't know about you, but either way, it fascinates me.
Anyways, if you need your pictures taken, let's have a photo shoot. :)
