Life Updated

Well, the last few weekends have been pretty busy.  Being new to Washington State, I feel that it's only appropriate to explore these new lands as the weather makes a milder turn.  In other words, that Boyfriend of mine and I have taken small road trips!

Two weekends ago, we drove out to Washington's peninsula, which is the western most part of Washington.  Being close to the Olympic mountain range, afforded us beautiful views of the snowcapped peaks.  The area that we went to is known to have many waterfalls and during the spring time, as the weather warms, the waterfalls become much bigger because of the glaciers melting at the top of the mountains.  There are supposedly several waterfalls to be seen in this area.   Some were right off the road, while others we had to hike a little to reach.  Unfortunately, since we live in a modern technology world, both of us were relying on the GPS's on our phones, but we lost signal, so we could not find a few that we were hoping to see, but thankfully we were able to see 4 beautiful falls.

Love Crayon Art... Literally!

I guess I got a little tired or staring at the blank walls in my apartment, so I knew that I needed to do something to add some color!  Out came the crayons left over from my last experiment with crayon art.  Since I used most of the yellows and blues on my last project, I was left with reds, purples, pinks, etc.  After organizing them in the way that I wanted, I grabbed my handy hot glue gun and glued each crayon to the top of the canvas.

I used a box when using the hair dryer to melt the crayons.
