The One Line Drawing Challenge *Collaboration w/ Housemom322*





HELLO WONDERFUL PEOPLE ON THE PLANET EARTH! My apologies for not posting last Friday, I was just really overwhelmed with just stuff, that I really did not feel like posting at all! But today, I am back! I'm really excited to do this blog post today, because I think it will be very interesting, to see the comparison between my sister and I! Just a little bit of information before we start this blog post, I do not use drawing tablets often, I prefer mouse, so it will be cool to see how the tools make a difference! So, let's get started!
1. Tree
This was a pretty simple round! (Yes, I did do this with only one line... I know you guys are probably thinking, HOW DID SHE DRAW THOSE STICKS? Just trace it all the way up.) Anyway, I think it turned out half decent... It's a dead tree but... That's okay!
Moving onto the next one, which will be a horse!
2. Horse
(aka a horse that looks like a donkey)
SO THIS IS MY DONKEY.
HIS NAME IS HORSE.
I ORIGINALLY THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO BE A HORSE.
BUT HE TURNED OUT TO BE A DONKEY.
SO THAT BEING SAID...
He's a donkey that's name is a horse! :D
Honestly, this was a really hard round! Like how are you even able to make a horse without letting go of your mouse??? I don't know???
Anyway, onto the final one, which is probably going to be the second easiest.
3. House
So, this is my house... I think I did okay with it. Basically the circle is a little road that just tracks around the house, and then at the back of the house the road goes on so. Uhm, I think my sister did better for sure. I decided to go for black because I thought black would be kinda cool for a house... maybe... maybe not? :D
So, I guess that's it for today guys!
I hope you guys enjoyed watching me fail horribly! 🤣🤣🤣
Here's today's bible verse!
Job 12:9 (KJV)
Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?
BYE! :D

What You Can Learn About People On AJ In Just One Trip To Jamaa Township And Bee Wild Weekend 8/15/19 And This Is A Very Long Title

HEYYYY JAM JAMS! I'm currently bored out of my mind so I figured I might as well post, cuz it's kinda my day to post after all. We were gonna go grocery shopping today, but my mom is feeling really sick today. So please keep her in your prayers! I get super stressed whenever a family member is sick, so uh...

I know I seem to apologize every time I do a post for some reason or another, but I really did want to apologize for the wonky posting schedule lately. I know I haven't been posting on Sunday's, and I've said this before, but I am just so exhausted on Sunday's that it makes it super difficult to come out with a decent post. I would love to see daily blog posts on here again, so I'm going to try to make that possible! I would really like to find another blogger to post for me on Sunday's, but it seems like AJ blogging has really declined, and there really aren't many people that can commit to blogging. So, we shall see. My goal is to keep this blog going as long as Animal Jam is around. So I'm definitely hoping that some young and aspiring writers will want to join the blogging world soon!

Okay that's enough rambling, let's get started with today's post. (:

---

I've been wanting to do this blog post for a while, and I got the pictures for this post weeks ago! I'm calling this segment... "What you can learn about people on AJ in just one trip to Jamaa Township. Long title, I know. It's pretty interesting the things you can know about this game as soon as you go into Jamaa Township...


First of all, Jamaa Township is full. Like all the time. Especially Aldan. Sometimes all the other lands are open, except for Jamaa Township, which is basically trading central.


People host weird roleplays in there den that 99% of the time end in drama.


I think to a new player, this alone would be confusing. "trade me flower crown member no yellow" "SWAP MY PHANTOM CLOTHES ON TRADE TO BLACK PLS."


People always beg for rares.


People make 0 sense.

And that's what Animal Jam is aaaaaaaaalllllllll about. :D

---

Anywho, on another note, today is the start of this week's Wild Weekend! Let's take a look at that, as it's rather interesting...


Now for sale in the Diamond Shop is the Royal Bee Armor! In this set is the royal bee armor, and supposedly den items, but I can't find any den items which is strange... If you know where they are please comment below so I can update this post!

These new items are to celebrate National Honeybee Day, which is this Saturday! Let's take a look at the armor.


Okay, this armor isn't horrible, but it isn't my favorite. We've definitely had worse Wild Weekends, but we've also had better. But I mean... Bee's don't have hair.
I'll leave it at that.
(:

Here's todays Bible verse!

I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.

God made you. Uniquely. Beautifully. Intentionally. Purposefully. Wonderfully.

The One Line Drawing Challenge *Collaboration w/ Housemom418*






__________________________________________________________________

Hello guys! Today I am actually kind of scared about this post, but at the same time I am really excited. I guess we'll see how this goes! Today, I am going to drawing three simple drawings, however there is a catch...

I CANNOT PICK UP MY PEN!

:GASP:

Yep, that's right it's a one line challenge. There is another catch! This is a collaboration! Yes, that's right. I am going to be doing this challenge with my sister as well! Her post will come out Friday.

I think we shall begin, but first I need to hook up my drawing tablet.

:Puts USB into computer:

Okay, we should be set!

And as I get started I realize something... I CAN'T CHANGE COLORS! Grrrrr...I am going to be having a dead tree!

1) Tree


So, I was going to add more branches, but um...I um, well, released my button. This is harder that I thought it was going to be. So um yeah, that's my treeeeeee. NEXT...


2) Horse






Umm, this is kind of embarrassing, or A LOT! I mean seriously what is this!? I can't control my pen! This um, horse has no tail! My sister even looked at it and said, "Um that looks like a nice sheep."
Yeah, I don't like it WHATSOEVER! It's um, well horrible. A two-year-old go do better than this! I really wish I could have added a tail! XD Okay, enough jabbering!


3) House

This one should be easy...so I am hoping! Let's see what we get...


Okay, not um too bad. I guess. This one I actually got to finish. I say that because on my drawing tablet, only on Animal Jam do I have to press and hold the top button on my pen. So, in the last two drawing I had let go of the button during the process of the drawing. However, it was very painful towards the end. XDD My thumb started to cramp. Oh well, I think it was absolutely worth it.

__________________________________________________________________


That's all for today. :) I hope you all enjoyed this! You should totally try it! Let me know what your favorite was, my personal favorite is the house. I am really sorry that it was so short. Next week, I'll have a longer post. Okay...bye guys!!!!!

The French Fry Noodle Camel Update - 8/8/19

HELLOOOOO JAM JAMS. How's everyone doing today?! I would of posted this sooner, but due to laziness, and the fact that I was out of the house most of the day, this post has been delayed. XD I want to apologize for not posting on Sunday! I'm pretty sure I didn't post because I was tired... I dunno. I also wanted to let you guys know that Gizmo634 is currently on a hiatus. I haven't gotten a chance to talk to her, so I'm not sure how long it will be, but as for right now there won't be any posts on Tuesday. :)

Anywhooo, let's jump into today's post, since today we have a rather interesting Animal Jam update...

---


On the first page, Animal Jam announced this week's wild weekend! I honestly am not a fan of anything Juno, but they came out with an item set based around the alpha. Let's take a look at them!


I do really like the blue theme going on here, but I just don't like Juno so uhm. XDD


Camels are here! I heard people saying before the camels came out, that they hope it's not just an edited version of a llama, since camels and llamas are pretty similar with their fur and such. And well... It is an edited version of a llama. They're currently for sale for 10 diamonds in the Diamond Shop, and here's what they look like.


Uhhhhhh... I don't like slamming AJ or criticizing them. I really don't. But this just... It's just not good. Let's see what other people are saying about the camels. I randomly walked into a conversation about them, and it was quite interesting. (BEWARE OF THE PICTURE DUMP XDD)


I kept telling the House's that the legs looked like sticks. But I guess noodles work too.


Or french fries.


Someone is unsure (like I was) of what's going on exactly with these camels.


This person was saying how the swords don't seem secure on camels.


Oh goodness. XDD


True. The armor is just gently resting atop the camel.

ANYWAYS LET'S MOVE ON.


This page is just an ad for Play Wild. I know a lot of people play Play Wild, but I honestly haven't been on Play Wild in MONTHS. By now it's probably been like a year... I used to go on there almost every night with Swirlshine!


Cosmo's Tree House is back! This den is pretty big, so big that I think it took me quite a while to actually take the time to finish decorating it. It's for sale in the Diamond Shop for 7 diamonds!



It's almost National Honeybee Day, which means pet honeybee's are back! I always forget to buy one, so I'll have to try and remember to buy one this year. They're just so stinkin' adorable that I gotta have one. You can adopt one by clicking on one of the honeybee signs around Jamaa! I love that when you click on the sign, you not only can adopt a pet honeybee, but you can also read a fact about honeybee's too!


Even the sign is adorable, oh my goodness. :o


The seasonal adventure, Tiki Trouble is back! I remember this adventure is pretty fun, and it's great because you can win pineapple plants. And pineapples are amazing. (:


New "frolicking foxes" will soon be coming to Jamaa! I know Animal Jam has been doing this a lot, using old animals and sticking patterns on them, but I honestly think that's really cool! I think these new foxes are going to be really beautiful, since they're going to have flowers on them. I'm excited to see what these animals look like!


The Schoolhouse Party is back! I think the Schoolhouse Party is so cute, and I love the items that they sell in it. Also, there's a new den item set that will be coming to Jamaa soon, with bird feather items. The couch is already for sale in the Diamond Shop for 1 diamond.

O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive, so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.

Edit/P.S.:

Are any of you bloggers out there having the same problem as I am? When I click on my Blogger reading list, it won't show me the newest posts from me and Housemom322. I dunno if the reading list feature is going to be going away, or if this is just a glitch I'm having. Let me know!
Never mind, Blogger fixed it. XD

God Sees Your Heart

HELLO GUYS!

Today's post is going to be a Christian post for once! I feel like I have really strayed away from doing the Christian posts, for whatever reason. I guess, I felt I've been talking about the same things over and over again, maybe just in different ways. However, I think this post is going to be different.

The title really says it all, but I'll go more in depth to what I mean by that statement. You see, God knows your heart behind everything that you do. Nothing is hidden from Him. Sometimes, I think we can forget about that, (or at least I do). We can't hide the fear that we feel about our future. We can't hide that sin that's eating us alive, but no one knows about it. We can't hide the fact that we're not okay, when we act like we are. Yes, you may hide it from the people around you, but it's all before God. Just as 1 Samuel 16:7, states.

But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.

I personally love the fact that God sees my heart, because I know that I can't follow my own heart for it can be deceitful and wicked, as Jeremiah 17:9-10 says,

9) The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

10) I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

and Proverbs 18:2

A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.  

I also love the fact that He knows it, because sometimes I don't know my own heart. Sometimes, I can't explain why I feel the way I do, or why I do what I do. However, I know, by the Holy Spirit that He'll guide me in the Truth. He searches, knows, and tries my heart, as Psalms 139:23-24 says. 

23) Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:

24) And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Which makes me want to seek Him more. I know that I am protected in His care, when trouble arises. Yes, I may be sad, or even cry, but I still know He is there to comfort me and protect me. I know He'll never leave me, especially when the clouds roll over my head, and the thunder crashes all around me. 

29) But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.

30) When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;

31) (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.

It's great to know, that when my heart is broken, He still sees me. He understands when my heart breaks, for whatever the reason may be. It's a huge blessing to know that He'll heal up that place in my heart.

He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds. - Psalms 147:3 

The things that we do for God do not go unseen, it can even be in the littlest things, such as the giving of your time. God is pleased with those who give cheerfully, whether that be monetary things, or of your time like I said. You should be able to rejoice that God knows what you're doing! You should be happy that He's writing it all down, for He will reward and bless you in ways that you didn't see coming. 

Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto. - Deuteronomy 15:10 

Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. - 2 Corinthians 9:7


When we choose to obey His voice and His word, we have the opportunity of having a "perfect" heart before Him. Now, this doesn't mean that we are going to be perfect people, but it does mean that God will be pleased with us, as he was with David, even though he messed up in life. 

Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day. - 1 Kings 8:61

For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father. - 1 Kings 11:4

__________________________________________________________________

Looks like that's all for today. I would like to ask you all for prayer, I am not going to say what is going on right now, but I just ask for prayer. God knows what is going on and who I am. Thank you all!
