Blog Challenges · My Writings · NaBloPoMo14


I just added my awesome blog to BlogHer’s National Blog Post Month blogroll. Its like National Novel Writers Month but with NaBloPoMo bloggers write a post for every day in November.

Why did I choose to do this as well? Punishment? No. I want to write more. I like to write. My life is pretty boring so I hope I can find things to write about all month long and work on my novel for NaNoWriMo.

I plan to not mention anything regarding politics or religion. I don’t want to make any of my readers angry. I plan to use this month to look deep into myself and find the amazing writer I know I can be. Maybe inspire people in some way. Work on my poetry. Work on my vocabulary 🙂

I hope you will follow along with me . I set up a NaBloPoMo category that can be found on the left side of this blog.  Wish me luck!


My Writings

On to my next adventure

10649093_10152652554704299_1892699931611470474_o With Halloween orders done and shipped out I can get back to something I love just as much as crocheting.. writing. Its time to continue my journey to be a children’s author. I haven’t touched my book for my second lesson in over a month. My correspondence school ( SCI- Stratford Career Institute ) is “worried ” since they haven’t heard from me in a while.  I have to send in my 3rd exam, oh and I wrote my writing exam in just under 10 minutes and haven’t touched it since. I was very busy with hats. Now I have to find the notebook my scene is in and type it up and send it out,and get my A+ 🙂  fingers and toes crossed. A good way to practice my writing is with National Novel Writing Month.  I plan on finishing a story for the past few years and get disappointed when I am unable to finish. In no way do I expect I will be able to write 50,000 words in one months but I an sure try for half 🙂 nanowrimo1

Crochet stuff

I can see it!

I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. My customers have me over worked 🙂 Since about mid- September I’ve been making hats … alot of hats. Its Halloween season and people want their little one ( or themselves) to look like Edith from Despicable me, a Minion, Anna or Elsa from Frozen, a Lego guy and even a Cabbage Pat Kid . And I love making them! But it takes a lot of yarn… I mean A LOT of yarn. I have placed about 4 medium orders with for yarn. (note to self: Next year order early).

One person can only make so many hats in one day. I’ve been averaging 3-5 hats in one day. Depending on the type. with less than 20 hats to make, my nerves are finally starting to relax. I want all orders to arrive in plenty of time for Halloween since most if not all these hats are going to be toppers for Halloween costumes. ( I really hope I get pictures 🙂 )

Another note to self… Make hats for Halloween in JUNE!! lol Halloween season ( Sept – Oct) is the most busiest time for me. I wish that would continue through Christmas, maybe someday it will. ( fingers crossed) .  Soon I will be able to make other fall items and decor for Thanksgiving and get an early start on Christmas ornaments . I am planning on selling my stuff at a local craft fair this Dec. I missed it last year , I hope I don’t miss it again. I also have to make some seasonal items for a local artisan gift consignment shop. Ive had spring items there since

Enough chatting for now… back to the hats… I wish they could make themselves , hehe

Something I have been working on. its a potholder.. another one is in the making along with a Hot pad.

WIP Wednesday: Infinity Scarf

I haven’t played with my looms in months. I was putting more yarn in my yarn cabinet and I couldn’t fit a few skeins. I spotted 2 50 gram skeins and thought these would make a cute infinity scarf! So I grabbed them and put them with my loom and I started the scarf that night.. Sunday. I am half way done. 🙂  The yarn is Bergere de France  from the Arlequin collection ( now discontinued ) color: Muscari ❤
