On Guard: A Halloween Dummy

Halloween is just around the corner. I bet my friend, Marcy, is super excited for the event. And I am looking forward to see her costume. For the past two years, she totally nailed her Halloween get-up.

Since we don’t wear costumes, we are celebrating Halloween through décor.


Halloween Dummy



This guy on guard has been serving us for several years already. It was actually my sister’s boyfriend who put it up.  At distance it looks real and many people were duped with it. One time a policeman dropped by to check the dummy thinking it was a real drunk man who passed out in a freezing weather with snow few inches high.

Making this dummy is cheap: you only need to buy the mask and you can just get the rest of the materials out from your closet for the outfit, and props from your garage.

Happy Halloween everyone…

Expressing Feelings Through Drawing

Financial blessings are pouring as month of October starts. But on the other hand, I am emotionally down. On the very first day of this month, I had an argument with my co-worker. She was in rage over simple things that can be solve if only she is open-minded. But there’s no point of having an argument with that kind of person thus leaving the situation unsolved.

And then bf made me so upset with his messages. We’ve been in a long distance relationship for a decade already and you can’t express much when you have an argument through text messaging. I almost gave up and honestly I do not know if there is still a bright future that awaits for us.

I tried to get rid of the negative emotions through relaxation, blogging, listening to music, reading and anything that could divert my thoughts but none of these help. Not until I flip one page of an old book and start sketching a woman with a sad face and tears rolling on her cheek. It was a perfect definition of my emotions and I totally feel a relief from a heavy baggage that was kept in my heart.



That book is now my sketch book… my special diary.


P.S. I bought that book from a local thrift store. I was attracted with it because it was about angel. But never read it because there are pages that were  and repeated. Apparently there are defects probably from manufacturing that book. However, it is a book that help me deal my emotions. Indeed an Angel sent it to me.


My Drawing Version of Mr. B’s Kindergarten Photo

I am glad that Mr. B, my boyfie, has his own place now. It was his big dream and finally realized this year. He is so elated to decorate his place and requested me to do some abstract painting in a canvass. But the requested size is too big and will cost me money for shipping. Besides painting isn’t really my forte. Although abstract sounds easy to do but I want to do it perfectly for his house.

Another request is to draw our kindergarten, elementary, high school and college photos. That’s like lots if he knows but I am willing to draw. Thanks to my bestie who kept her copy of our yearbook from kindergarten to high school. She sent me the copies of our photos through email.


Mr. B

This drawing is just a sample copy and needs approval from Mr. B. He likes but jokingly said that I distorted some parts of his face and I responded that he even look better in my drawing. Hahaha….
