The Disadvantages Of Santa!

When I was little, I always thought being Santa would be the greatest job ever. I mean, your elves would be able to make anything, there’s magic all around and you get to fly in a sleigh all night long if you want to! Those points are valid, but what are some of the disadvantages? Here are a few I thought about! 😀

Here’s a comic I drew with some of the disadvantages of being Santa! (P.S, there’s a lot more disadvantages than this, I just didn’t draw them!)

Did you think of any other disadvantages? Anyway, have a great day!

Drawing Challenge!

If you read my About Me post, you would know I love ♥ all types of art ♥ , but especially drawing and sketching. I got the idea to try to make my own drawing challenge! I thought I should post it so if anyone else loves to draw and sketch, or even if they don’t like to, they can try it!

Pretty much what it is is a list of a whole bunch of drawing prompts. There is one for every day of the month, (any month) and the goal is to draw something, even if it is a tiny little doodle, of the first thing that comes to mind when you read the prompt. It could be a piece Van Gogh would be proud of or something so bad the dog wouldn’t even WANT to eat it, it doesn’t matter! You don’t have to be good at art to do this challenge. In fact, this could be how you get better!

After the month is over, even if you missed a couple days, I can bet your mind will be blown when you see how much your artwork has gotten better. I’ve also included a picture of what came to my mind when I read the first prompt!

Would You Rather…? Part 2

A little while ago, I made 15 Would You Rather’s in a part one and said another 15 would be coming soon. Well, here they are!

Image result for would you rather

  1. Would you rather have a snake as a pet or a tarantula?
  2. Would you rather live in space or underwater? (In both places you have unlimited oxygen!)
  3. Would you rather shoot wet noodles out of your fingers or sneeze meatballs?
  4. Would you rather have a head twice as big or half as small?
  5. Would you rather always have to enter rooms backwards or always have to somersault out of the room?
  6. Would you rather be totally covered in hair, head to toe or always be completely bald?
  7. Would you rather have a unicorn horn or a squirrel tail? (I would pick a squirrel tail in a heartbeat!)
  8. Would you rather be able to shoot hot sauce from your eyes (it doesn’t burn you, only others) or be able to jump 20 meters high?
  9. Would you rather be able to fly or be telepathic? (You can read minds, transmit thoughts and lift things without touching them!)
  10. Would you rather have a pet dragon or be someone’s pet dragon?
  11. Would you rather find a dragon or a unicorn?
  12. Would you rather have an extra leg or an extra arm?
  13. Would you rather only ever be able to shout or whisper everything you say out loud?
  14. Would you rather be guaranteed heath or wealth for the rest of your life?
  15. Would you rather quack like a duck for 1 minute after every sentence or do the chicken dance 3 times after every sentence?

There we go! Is there one that stood out to you? What did you choose and why?

Have a great day!

Would You Rather…? Part 1

Have you ever done a would you rather? I think most of us have. It’s a great game to play in the car, or literally anywhere. If you have never played, it’s simple. Someone gives you a choice between 2 scenarios. The scenarios can be funny, disgusting or awesome. It’s up to you! Here is a list I compiled of 15 would you rather’s. Another 15 will be coming out soon in a part 2!

What would you choose?

  • Would you rather always be 10 minutes late or 20 minutes early?
  • Would you rather be thrown in jail for 4 years for something you didn’t do or do something horrible, never get caught but live in fear of being discovered for the rest of your life?
  • Would you rather the general public think you are a horrible person but your family be very proud of you or your family think you are a horrible person but the general public be very proud of you?
  • Would you rather drink a cup (by cup I mean the measurement) of cat pee everyday for a week or have to wear high heels everyday for 2 weeks?
  • Would you rather be alone for the rest of your life or always be surrounded by annoying people?
  • Would you rather drive a beautiful, sleek sports car that is very unreliable or drive a rattling rust bucket that never broke down?
  • Would you rather be in a pool of marshmallows or M&M’s?
  • Would you rather it rain root beer or snow cotton candy?
  • Would you rather live in a place that is always too hot or always too cold?
  • Would you rather always wear your shoes on the wrong feet or always wear your pants backwards?
  • Would you rather everything you eat be too salty or not salty enough no matter how much salt you add?
  • Would you rather have unlimited sushi or tacos? (Can be any type you want!)
  • Would you rather sweat melted cheese or always smell skunk?
  • Would you rather be the best player on a losing team or the worst player on a winning team? (Can be any sport!)
  • Would you rather sleep in a bed of peanut butter every night or have your air conditioning spit out rather large spiders every 2 hours?

That’s all 15 would you rather’s! Hope you liked them. These are also a great thing to ask friends or family! I love asking my family these, so if you have a good one I didn’t include, I would love to hear it!

Have a great day!

How to Cross a Piranha-Filled River

Hello people! Have you ever done a Mad Lib? Pretty much, it’s where someone gives you a whole bunch of blanks and the type of word that should fill it in. Once you have filled in all the blanks, (in this case I recommend writing them down), you read the following story and where the blanks are, you insert the word that you used to fill it in! Since you didn’t read the story before you filled in the blanks, it turns into a short, quirky story that probably doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Have fun with it! Just remember, fill in the blanks BEFORE you read the story. If you are like me and you forgot what each type of words means, I’ve included a cheat sheet. (P.S, the story I’ve chosen is online but has been re-written by me to avoid plagiarism.)

Adjective; A describing word, such as blue, small, beautiful.

Noun; A person, place or thing.

Verb; An action. ( i.e. running, cutting, smiling). Does not have to end in -ing.

Interjection; An exclamation! Something you would yell out when you are excited, or happy. (i.e.  Woo! Bazinga! Hallelujah! Cool cheese!)

Plural; More than one. (So, like, instead of “Taco” it would be “Tacos”)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(1) Adjective          (2) Adjective          (3) Foreign country          (4) Part of body          (5) Adjective

(6) Type of food plural         (7) Same food but not plural          (8) Verb        (9) Noun
