This Edgar Allen Poe oil painting is amazing.

A men's watch box would be a perfect gift for that certain mister.

I know I would love this quartz crystal bracelet as a gift.

A Week From Today

Next Tuesday will be one year blogiversary. I can't believe it's going to be a year already. It's been a very long year tho. I'm still learning about blogging and how much work it takes. I know when I started, I wanted to have all this great content and post like 4 - 5 times a week. Have a DIY every week or maybe two.

I soon realized it was just so much work and I completely burned myself out when I did 25 Days of Crafts. It wasn't my first 25 Days of Crafts, but it was my first to take pictures of the whole process. There are so many post I would love to redo and retake the pictures. Here are some of my favorite post I've done this past year:

*What I Wore
*Braided Necklace
*Getting Started
*The Worst Parts of Being A Crafter
*DIY Initial Necklace
*My Little Family
*Wednesday Favorites: TV Edition
*Birthday Snap Shots
*DIY Doctor Who Banner
*Last Week...
*A Rare Moment
*DIY Framed Pressed Flowers
*Surprise Harry Potter Costume Party Part 1
*DIY Ice Cream Corkboard
*I Think I'm Watching Pokemon Wrong

I like to go through my old post sometimes and see what I wrote. Keeping a blog is pretty much a journal, but for everyone to see. I've always tried keeping a diary/journal, but I would forget to write in it. Luckily, I can't forget about you guys. Making things and posting them up on here was pretty much the reason why I wanted to start blogging. I'm going to try to have more DIY's for you guys. What kind of stuff do you guys want to see more of this year? More DIY's? Geeky stuff? Personal? Comment down below. xoxo Alyssa

P.S. Next week I'll be having a giveaway for my blogiversary so stay tuned.

Trivia Crack

Recently a friend of mine told me to download the game Trivia Crack to my phone. After a month I finally downloaded it and now I'm addicted. I regret nothing! Trivia Crack is a trivia game with six different categories and it's a total of 25 rounds. You have to collect the characters that correspond to each one of the categories. Spin the wheel and chance will decide which category you will have to answer. You can play against your friends or random opponents. Whoever collects all the characters before the 25th round wins or whoever has the most characters by the time the 25th round ends, wins.

My addiction got to the point where I told Alex to download the game, so I can keep playing. Now, he's addicted as well. My sister and my 8yr old nephew are addicted too. My nephew Aiden doesn't know any of the answers to the questions, so he guesses on each question. I feel so bad, because everybody beats him. If any of you out there that knows of a game similar trivia crack, but for kids let me know. We want to download a game that he'll have more of a chance on winning. If you like trivia games you should download this game. Comment down below if you download it and we can play against each other. xoxo Alyssa

Ghost Of Halloween Past

Over the years most Halloween's we tend to make our own costumes or just put things together from our closet. If our costumes need to be made, my mother sews them and we make the props. Here are some of the costumes we've DIYed over the years:
Max from Where the Wild Things Are

Hermes, Hippie, and Max

 Sonic the Hedgehog


Indian and Witch

 Corey Mason from Empire Records

Pete Burns from DeadorAlive

Michael Myers
