What is your favorite fairy tale and why?

The theme of the next few posts are Tales.

Today’s writing prompt is: What is your favorite fairy tale and why?

I don’t want to be corny and say the Little Mermaid, Snow White, or Cinderella. I had to look up a list of fairy tales to refresh my memory . A few I remember , The Princess and the Pea, Thumbelina, Hansel and Gretel , Rumpelstiltskin( not to be confused with the character on Once Upon a Time, a show I love. He also played Belle’s Beast, and Captain Hook’s Crocodile.)

Also A Christmas Carol was on the fairy tale list. A story I love. A movie I watch every year around Christmas. I love the characters in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland but not much of the story. While the Princess and the Pea and Thumbelina are cute, Hansel and Gretel is a bit dark, and Rumpelstiltskin makes me smirk at the end but the one I love most is Snow White and Rose Red .Β 

I remember reading it as a child.Β  I remember liking the story because no one got hurt , except the dwarf. ( but he deserved it)Β  And both girls were happy. They didn’t have to compete against each other.Β  As a little girl I wanted the little girls in my story books to be happy.

Crochet A Longs, Good Ideas, Sharing my life

25 in five : Yarn addition

I recently saw a reading challenge called #25infive on instagram. The participants read what they can for 25 hours in 5 days.

My yarn obsessed brain got to thinking about how I can use this with my yarn balls. I still have a ton. Here is what I was thinking , use 25 balls of yarn , any size, any weight, in 5 days. Make whatever I want.

Its Friday so I will take the weekend to look through my stash and pick my 25 and post again on monday, day 1.

This could be a fun monthly crochet/knit/loom a long πŸ™‚

Off Topic, Sharing my life

Blogging about something new

I usually stare at my computer screen hoping that words will just magically appear.Β  Sometimes only half a thought comes out and the post is left in my drafts for eternity .

I want to blog about something other than crochet, knitting, any thing yarn related. But i need a little push, a topic to talk about. nothing serious like politics or religion, or parenting, ( since I dont have kids) . And my life is pretty boring. I can probably fill a tweet more than a blog post.

Today I remembered Blogher and the writing prompts they use to have. I use to post when they did their #NaBloPoMo .The last one was September 2016. It seems they are more occupied with the conferences. But their prompts are still around.

Anyway a lot of the prompts “spoke to me” lol . So if you see a post about the one appliance I cant live with out.. Dont worry, its just me and I have not lost my mind πŸ™‚

The first theme I may tackle is their august prompts, TALES.
