Song in my head….  
Beautiful, beautiful by Francesca Battistelli

In my window… my Halloween lights are glowing
I am thinking… of new things to draw
I am thankful… all the opportunities that I have been givin
One of my favourite things… music
From the kitchen… are clean dishes waiting to be put away
I am wearing… pj’s

I am creating… a sketch
I am going… to be sleeping soon, hopefully
I am wondering… why I stay up to late
I am reading… lyrics to songs I like
I am hoping… a new day full of fun
I am looking forward to… thursday
I am hearing… music playing in my ears
Around the house… there are clean towels and laundry
I am pondering… when my art angel will return
Plans for the week… edit photos and order Christmas cards

Remember THIS POST ?

Well I finally finished the painting. After I finished painting it, I didn't like it that much. I also didn't use watercolour paper and the paper got all warped :( forgot about that I guess.

But today I realized something while I was doing another sketch, I am not perfect and I don't have to be. A lovely lady that I have never meet told me this, her blog has helped me with not only my art but with my soul too.
Here is the final product....

it says...
Nature is something to behold if only given the chance to grow.

I think this means more to me then I ever knew it would. I just needed time to grow before I was ready to finish it. I rather fancy it now.

I was decorating my house and getting ready for Halloween this week, so I decided that I should start counting down my favorites. I love Halloween and I love Halloween movies!! Here are a few of my favs. I will be counting down to my number one favorite as we get closer to the 31st!

Corpse Bride - Tim Burton combines wholesome comedy and creepy horror with this tale of a mild-mannered Victorian gentleman, Victor, who accidentally marries a mysterious corpse bride instead of his intended, Victoria. Victor soon discovers that the Land of the Dead holds more fun than frights and begins to fall in love with his innocent bride. Meanwhile, Victoria has been drawn into a scam of a marriage and may not escape with her life.
I loved this movie it was so well done, Tim Burton is a master mind and I just love all of his movies. This one puts a fun spin on the afterlife, its full of colour and laughter and the world of the living is gray and bleak. Very good movie and family friendly.

Wallace and Gromit and the curse of the were-rabbit - English inventor Wallace and his trusted canine companion, Gromit, have a thriving varmint-elimination service. Wallace has a potential paramour in wealthy client Lady Tottington. Unfortunately, the slick-talking hunter Victor Quartermaine also has designs on the lady, and he’s not giving up easily. When a giant rabbit terrorizes the townsfolk, another dimension is added to the existing competition between Wallace and Victor, and the outcome will be the talk of the town! 
Wallace and Gromit are classic favourites of mine, we own everyone! This is by far my favourite one. Full of laughs and interesting twist, this one will keep you coming back again and again.

Mickey’s House of Villains - Mickey Mouse must do battle with Disney's entire pantheon of villains in this feature length adventure. The nefarious Jafar has teamed up with Cruella, Hades, Ursula, Captain Hook, and Maleficent to take over the House of Mouse and turn it into the House of Villains. With help from Minnie, Pluto, Donald, and Goofy, Mickey must stop these malevolent malcontents. Within the context of the overall plot, Mickey plays some of the fun classic Halloween shorts from Disney. 
This one is a must see, me and my sisters used to watch it every year on the Disney channel. It has all the Disney characters in it full of old cartoons and new laughs. This is a must see if you have kids.

Starting our countdown  is my number 5 movie!

Casper - Steven Spielberg produced this feature starring the friendly ghost created in 1940 by Joe Orolio. A greedy heiress inherits the haunted Whipstaff Manor and discovers that the house contains a treasure, which is guarded by three nasty ghosts. Ghost therapist Dr. James Harvey, and his daughter Kat, move into the mansion to get rid of the supernatural creatures. Kat makes friends with a ghost named Casper, the nephew of the 3 nasty ghosts. Rated PG for mild language, thematic elements.
Caper the friendly ghost is the best known ghost around! This movie is full of pranks, laughs and even love…all mixed together with the love of Halloween. This movie is a classic choice to me and I watch it every year. I love the ending where Casper gets to come alive again, good guys do get the girl too, well for a little while anyway. Great acting and beautifully done!

Before we get started I am going to tell you how I will be rating movies
1 Star – Really? don’t waist your time
2 Stars – Meh!  I am glad I only spent $5
3 Stars – Ok! But a little boring in places
4 Stars – Good! Will watch it again
5 Stars – Awesome! Will watch over and over and over again

Today’s movie is called Scoop
Here is what the back says:

When and inquistive college journalist stumbles upon new clues to a string of murders, her investigation leads directly to a handsome businessman, who draws her in with his mysterious charm. Could a whirlwind romance with the subject of her search also become the most dangerous scoop of a lifetime?

I wanted to start with a movie that I havent seen, just to spice things up. I bought this movie for $3 at liqudation world, so of course I couldn’t pass it up.
I give this movie a 3 star rating, only because it was kind of slow, for me. It was very funny and my fav person in it is Sid Waterman, played by Woody Allen. In the movie he plays a magician named Splendini and he is very funny, throughout the whole movie. Woody Allen actually wrote, directed and starred in this movie, isn’t that amazing!
Scarlett Johansson and Hugh Jackman. Both ever good actors in my books, I will watch anything with Huge Jackman in it these days ;) These are both very amazing actors and they did a very good job in this movie as well.
Scarlett plays a wanna be journalist student that gets handed the case of a life time. Its kindof funny how she gets that information but I wont say for the people that will be watching it. It come by the phrase “a reporter will do anything for the next big story” That explains it pretty good ;)
Huge Jackman plays a very handsom business man that has it all, wealth, looks and title. He is very contages and even I feel for his charm but as the peaces fall into place he looks more and more guilty. The movie was to planned out I think with not enough of the surprise element that I like in movies. Although Huge does try to lur you off the trail with that acent of his.
All in all it was a good movie but I am glad that I only paid $3

A young man named John received a parrot as a gift.

The parrot has a bad attitude and even worse vocabulary. Every word out of the bird’s mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity.

John tried and tried to change the bird’s attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else he could think of to “clean up” the bird’s vocabulary. Finally, john was fed up and he yelled at the parrot.

The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even ruder.

John, in desperation, threw up his hand, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer. For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed.

Then suddenly there was total quite. Not a peep was heard for over a minute. Fearing that he’d hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the door to the freezer. The parrot calmly stepped out onto John’s outstretched arm and said,

“I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I’m sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behaviour.”

John was stunned at the change in the bird’s attitude. And he was about to as the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behaviour, the bird continued,

“May I ask what the turkey did?”
