TVD S1, S2 and S3 Bloopers

Video

Video by (MCRdeathGod)

So I was fidgeting my phone hours ago looking what am I going to write today for Fashion-Friday (Different topics for different days so that i have a guide what to write. hehehe) Anyways, while i was looking any interesting fashion videos on You Tube, I stumbled on this video. Since I am a great fan of the very talked about “The Vampire Diaries” I was very curious what the actors would look like when they’re caught off guard or make some small mistakes during their takes. Since the Vampire Diaries shows a lot of emotion like love, anger, revenge and resentment, I’d like to see them in a whole another side which is them, being just their self on set.

I have a few favorite parts of the video. One was where Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) accidentally pulled the Statue over that led to Paul Wesley (Stefan Salvatore) saying “Oh my God!”. Second one was when Nina Dobrev (playing the role of Katherine Petrova) accidentally stepped on her own dress and fell to the ground while she was trying to let Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) chase her. This part Ian was laughing so hard. But my favorite part of the video was the last part. Where Ian Introduced himself to Taylor Kinney (Mason Lockwood) as Ian. They were all laughing so hard! They sure know have to have fun in the set but at the end, they deliver their lines and acting so well that they can really capture the hearts and emotions of their viewers.

Light moments guys! hope you guys enjoy the Video!

Don’t be afraid of your past

“Don’t let your past dictate who you are, but let it be part of who you will become.” -My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)

Saw this reposted on twitter, and I agree on what it says. For me,I chose to look at life in a very positive way. The things that happened in the past, the mistakes I made are Life’s greatest lesson to me. If I hadn’t done those things, I wouldnt have what I have right now. Everyone, I think has that one mistake that you wish you could undo. That one mistake that made you wish that you could have done something. I believe that everything happens for a reason.I may not have known it before, but I know today that I learned many valuable lessons. Sometimes, some people think negatively of the past. It’s as if as something that’s chasing you. For me, my past is a reminder to me of how human I am. That I make mistakes, I learn from it, and it made me a better person that I am today. I have always asked myself before, why do people leave and hurt me so much? At that time I would always doubt myself if I have been a good person or not. Then, I came to realize that those persons who came and left me or those people who have hurt me in the past, or those that led me to make bad decisions before are just instruments to make me be thankful for what I have today.

I beleive that you create your own destiny, this day will become your past, make the most of it. Life is what you make it. Dont be afraid or be ashamed of your past, because if you look inside yourself, you know deep down that somewhere in your past, you learned great leasons in life. Think positive always, you control your life. Don’t bother listening to people who are constantly bringing you down because of the things that you did in the past. Rise up and prove to them that you are now a better person because you survived the hardships and trials that went your way.

I can say, that I am a living proof that the past does not define you. It is what molds you into a better person for others! It made me realize that I should value life and love myself more. That’s why today I feel so blessed to have my husband and son with me. Other people may judge me, but as long as I have faith in God that I can do better and rise up above all the trials and hardships, there’s no use of being afraid of the past!

Think positive, all is not lost. Always remember that Life is a journey, not a problem to be solved. Enjoy every bit of it, have fun today, for tommorw is uncertain. All we can do is just pray that the Lord will guide us through our everyday decisions.

Good vibes to all of you my dear readers! =)

DIY Door-Name-Hanger

Standard

A few weeks ago, I posted my DIY crates as shelf and is now being used in our newly built cabin for rent. Over the long weekend i was looking around the house for any other recyclable materials that i may use to make te door name hangers for our room for rent also. I realized That we had a lot of old dvds. I thought of creating something out of them as they are taking a huge space over our tv. With a little help from my mom and my husband, I am very proud to have made this!

20120822-082620.jpg
my finished product! yay!!

So this is how I made this.I hope you could bare with me on this DIY post of mine. hehehe

20120822-082959.jpg
These are the materials that you will be needing

First, I printed out letters to the name of the rooms that I will be making. Then my mom helped me buy cutting the letters one by one. Make sure that the letters are large enough to be read. I used georgia for the font and the size of the font as 200.

Next is that I traced the dvds on the scrap cloth that I had. That scrap cloth was a trimming of our buntings that we made for our coffee shop. I traced the number of dvds according to the number of letters for the room. Then, I let my husband cut out the cloth carefully as to follow the lines that were made.

I hope you could bare with me on the next steps. I havent taken any pictures further because my phone’s battery got drained. But don’t worry, the next fee steps are very easy!

After all the circles were cut out, I used the shiney part of the DVD (the part of the dvd opposite the label) and placed glue all over it. I used an average amount just to cover the whole dvd. Then i carefully placed the cloth over it. Wait for 10-15 minutes for it to dry. Then I placed the cut out letters in the center od the dvd. Continue doong that till all of the letters can now be read. Then I made small roses using the crepe paper and placed it somewhere that it can be recognized. I also use the scrap bias tape to make a rose.

Then I cut small pieces of the crepe paper made it into a small paper mache circle then outlined the dvds.It is very important that you measure first the dvds to the door so that you’ll know what design to use to make it fit. After measuring, I used the glue gun to put the dvds together then i let my husband put more hot glue at the back of the dvds before i could place them on the door.

Now you can sit back and enjoy your creation! I hope you guys enjoy it and I promise, the next time I make a tutorial, I post more detailed photos! hehehe thank you!

Walk off the Earth

Standard
A few weeks ago, I posted a video on my WordPress blog about The Piano Guys. I love their cover of what makes you beautiful by one direction. Their video was fun and very wholesome and nice to hear. Great voice, and very talented guys!
The very first time I saw the video of the group “walk of the earth” was when I was looking for a cover of Somebody that I used to know by Gotye. When I saw their cover of it, I was mesmerized to see that they just had 1 guitar and there were 5 of them playing it. yes, you read that right, 5 people playing one guitar. I was watching it with my husband, and immediately we started to watch more of their videos. Their original compositions are very good also. I have also seen them guesting in the Ellen DeGeneres show showcasing them for reaching 35 million views in 2 weeks! Yes that’s right 35 MILLION views on YouTube in 2 weeks. hehehe
They are cool guys and gal living in Ontario, Canada. I admire how much they could play the guitars and drums! Great voices also, not to mention they are all handsome and very pretty. Their videos are very light with a touch of humor. When watching their video it makes you feel that you are also there with them having fun! Very spontaneous and very innovative. By innovative i can see that they improvise some household things as musical instruments After I saw their cover of Somebody that I used to know by Gotye, I immediately subscribed to their YouTube account. And now they have a new cover of Payphone sang by  our (my husband and I) favorite band Maroon 5!
I hope you guys could visit their You Tube page and also their website! Walk off the Earth! you guys rock!

DIY Crate-Shelf

Standard

We just opened our new addition to our house for rent in Dahilayan, Bukidnon. My mom wants us to think of nice ideas to decorate our new house. Since we’re kind of on a tight budget I thought of a plan to recycle some old materials from our farm. I made our carpenter nail together some crates from our farm. Bought some plastic flowers for a cheap price and then reused some old Styrofoam. I made the carpenter varnished the creates,but not too much, only to give it a rustic look. Actually I was pretty happy how it turned out to be! I also used some old beer bottles and covered them with twine. placed old books and magazines! and some frames to give it a little light. hehehe thinking of making more DIY soon. Might be selling some too.

I love the idea of recycling things! It’s also saving the earth one step at a time and also earning from it.
