Crayon Pendant Necklace

One of the things I love to make is weird jewelry. This is definitely something people might view as weird. But they are easy and cheap to make and can be great for kids, as well. They are crayon pendant necklaces. They look like little marbled pendants of whatever colors you want.

What you’ll need:

Box of crayons

Medal pendant

Chain of your choice

Hair dryer

Knife or grater

Top Coat

 

Instructions:

  1. Pick the colors you want to use, I suggest using up to three.
  2. Shave pieces of the crayons with either the knife or the grater. Depending on the size of your pendant, you can have a small amount or a large amount of shaving. You don’t want too many though because they will over flow.
  3. I suggest heating the pendant before placing the shavings on it to keep them in place. The blowing of the hair dryer will blow them around.
  4. Place the shavings how you would like and heat them with the hair dryer on low.
  5. The melted wax will move around and create a marbled look.
  6. When the wax is cooled and the pendant is cool, use a clear top coat, whether it be nail polish, mod podge, or whatever you choose, I simply use nail polish.
  7. Lastly hang it on a chain and you’re all set.

If you have kids who would like to do this activity, I suggest an adult do the shaving part.

The Red Eyes

The scariest thing someone could experience is living in a haunted house, but not just any haunted house, a demonic haunting. So it’s not just someone falling of the shelf, or feeling someone sitting next to you, it’s things being thrown across the room, cuts on your body, and feeling like you’re literally going to die. I’m going to tell you a story about a demonic haunted from when I was a child.

I used to live in an old ranch style home that had a basement with my parents and my little sister. It was a nice house, a little creepy to the unknowing eye. But to me, it was hell. The basement was the worst part. The stairs down were cold and concrete and there was one small light that only lit up the top part of the staircase. The actual basement wasn’t much different. The floor was always cold and the only natural light was from one or two small windows in the corners of the room. I distinctly remember there being an old rusty bed set up with a night stand next to it. It looked old and creepy.

Unfortunately, we often had to go down there to do laundry and get our toys, so if I had to go down, I would run to the middle of the room that had the hanging light bulb and pull it on as fast as I could. All the while feeling his eyes glaring at me.

The way I remember seeing him, he was much taller than I was. The only way I could tell was from the bright red eyes in the darkest corner of the room. They would constantly stare at me and his breathing would get deeper and louder until it turned into a growl. I can still hear it to this day and it’s why I’m terrified of the dark.

For some reason my parents couldn’t see him the way I could which bothered me a lot but now I know that kids often are able to see the paranormal world better than adults can.

One of the scariest moments of my life happened in that basement. I had gone down to grab some toys and rather than his breathing turning into growling, I immediately heard a deep growling a lot closer than it usually was. I ran back up the stairs but felt something grab my leg and trip me on my way up.

When I got to the top I, of course, started crying and telling my mom that something attacked me and grabbed my leg. So we look at my leg and there were freaking claw marks around my ankle. They weren’t really bleeding but they were bright red, swollen, and the top layer was scratched up. Of course my mom started freaking out and might have actually believed me.

There were a few other events that I remember but they weren’t as bad as that one. From doors opening and the pots in the kitchen banging against each other. Another moment I specifically remember is one night, I was in my room getting ready to sleep. I was in bed with my eyes closed and halfway there. Now in my room I had a large sliding closet with a mirror on the front. It was a little squeaky when it opened.

I was laying in bed and out of nowhere, I hear my closet squeak open. Now being a child, I always thought I could open my eyes just a little bit, just enough to see but still look like I was sleeping, so that’s what I did. I could see my closet door open and something actually on the mirror, I didn’t know what but it looked like something was touching it. I quickly put the covers over my head and held them down.

I could hear breathing getting closer to me and my heart was racing. The breathing ended up right above my head and I could feel the heat coming through the blanket. I was shaking and crying and the breathing kept getting louder.

It stopped eventually but I did not sleep the rest of the night.

That house has definitely scarred me for the rest of my life. I can’t sleep unless I have a desk lamp on and music playing. We moved out of there when I was about seven and would go to visit every now and then. Every time we drive past the house, I can feel those red eyes glaring at me, daring me to come back.

The Kissing Booth Review

The Kissing Booth

If you are on Netflix and love cheesy teen movies, highly suggest watching “The Kissing Booth.” I have personally watched this movie at least a hundred times. It’s slightly cringey and funny as hell.

This movie starring Joey King, Jacob Elordi, and Joel Courtney follows two very best friends Lee and Elle and their high school experience. Their dance group has to come up with an idea for their school’s fair and, as you can guess from the title, it’s a kissing booth. Now through all this, we’re also looking at the main problem of Elle being totally into Lee’s older brother Noah. Big no no.

It’s full of laughs, tears, betrayal, sex, coming of age, and pretty much anything else you’d expect from a “dramatic” teen movie, including Molly Ringwald who plays Lee and Noah’s mom.

The movie is actually based off a book that was written on a site called Wattpad, which is a place anyone can post their work and every now and then, someone gets published and gets a movie deal. It is a really good book, though and the movie follows the book very well.

Another thing I like about the movie is that the actors are actually young enough to play teenagers. Joey being 18 and Jacob and Joel being 21 makes it actually seem like they’re teenagers. The acting is pretty good for the cheesiness of the film.

I don’t recommend the movie for smaller crowds because there is a bit of sexiness in the movie and language but that’s up to you.

Let me know what you guys think of the movie and thanks for reading!
