Happy November

nablopomo

Ahhh November…. One of my favorite months. Its hoodie weather. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love hoodies!

I lived in Florida off and on for a few years. Every November I was still in shorts and t shirts. Too warm for a hoodie. I hated it. I moved back to New England 6 years ago and I am so happy I get to wear my comfy hoodie and not look silly.

I’ve had my red hoodie for about 9 years now… it still fits and I love it.

Okay enough of the weird stuff… Back to November. Leaves changing color, My oldest brother , younger cousin and little sister and middle niece were born in November and my second favorite holiday resides in this month.. Thanksgiving ( Halloween being my 1st.) . I’m not a big fan of turkey but on this occasion I’ll eat it until I explode. My grandmother’s stuffing was amazing. And its a family secret.. hehe. I mastered it last year. I think my gram would be proud.

For the past 5 Turkey day years ,my boyfriend and I have made our own Thanksgiving dinners. Mostly Italian food. ย This years dinner is still up in the air. ย Maybe Chinese or something gluten – free. ( evil smirk ) . Any suggestions?

One thing is for sure… we will make a mess and I will be the one who cleans it up. grrrr. But the dinner will be made with love… too sappy?

I hope you liked my first post for NaBloPoMo.

I can’t believe I wrote about my hoodie. (face palm).

Blog Challenges, My Writings, NaBloPoMo14

NaBloPoMo

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ย Wish me luck!

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. ย I have to send in my 3rd exam, oh and payment..lol 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+ ๐Ÿ™‚ ย fingers and toes crossed. A good way to practice my writing is with National Novel Writing Month. ย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ย nanowrimo1

Crochet stuff, My Writings, WIPS

WIP Wednesday

My work in progress for this Wednesday ย is craft and non craft related.ย My work in progess for this Wednesday ย is craft and non craft related.
My craft related WIP is something for the Halloween season. When ย I first saw these sugar skulls, ย I fell inlove. They’re awesome. And for some reason I am into skulls this year. I’m not sure where I will hang this project when its finished at this moment but I will find a spot.ย Candy skulls

what do you think so far? ๐Ÿ™‚

Now for the non craft related WIP. I recently enrolled in Writing Stories for Children through Stratford Career Institute. I passed my first 2 tests, now I have to write ย a scene using what I learned from my reading. I’ve been putting this off for a month.How hard can writing one little scene be?

HARD!

I got nothing!

It doesn’t have to be a masterpiece, but I want to get an A for it. ย Lets start with an age range…. hows middle schoolers? now place…. gym class?

I’ll need about 500 words. Wish me luck!
