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 talesto 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 .
I remember reading it as a child. I remember liking the story because no one got hurt , except the dwarf. ( but he deserved it) And both girls were happy. They didn’t have to compete against each other. As a little girl I wanted the little girls in my story books to be happy.
Your turn… Click on the link above to see the list and tell me your favorite fairy tale . 🙂
I usually stare at my computer screen hoping that words will just magically appear. 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 🙂
The first theme I may tackle is their august prompts, TALES.
Theres been a few projects that have been on my hooks and needles this past week. No FOs though. April is my birth month (the 9th is my birthday) so most of the projects I make this month will be for me 🙂 I noticed the dragonfly pattern trend on ravelry . So I decided to make the Radiating Dragonfly throw by Pattern Paradise . I want to add one more section but I am unsure of what color. So far I have light raspberry, paradise, amethyst, delft blue and bright orchid. I need 241 yards to for section F . that’s less than a skein of yarn of red heart super saver. I was thinking about using cranberry which is a red heart accent and I would have to use a little more than a skein of it since it is a smaller skein. I suck with color.
But before I make a decision I have to finish a Magickarp hat for a friend. Her daughter is a pokemon go player and collects these hats . I am almost done I just need to do some sewing.
My 3rd project of the week… I just wanted to do something with this yarn.
Yarn: Red Heart with Love , Lemon Drop. Project: A hat.
I am so far behind on my blogher posts. I always say I want to write more and I don’t. well I actually have something to write about. the writing prompt for May 11 .( yeah I know it was last week.. better late than never) was What is something you’ve recently replaced in your home? How do you feel about the new item?
How do I feel ? Extatic? For about 5 months our computer chair has been a bit broke. the back of it just about gave out. We’ve had it for almost 2 years (?) Last month my fiance really put the last nail its coffin. The back was almost off the seat I think. If someone sat back on it , it would probably tip over. So what did Jon do? He wrapped electrical tape around it. It held for a day. But electrical tape stretches so he had to buy some clothes line rope.. ( you can laugh if you want) He wrapped the rope around the chair and it seemed to be okay. but the back still leaned back too much.
Why did we wait so long to get a new chair? Taxes. Jon wanted to use the money he was getting back from the state to buy the chair and some other stuff and not spend the federal since he got more back from them. Well its the middle of May and nothing from the state so he had to dip into his savings and buy a new chair. It was time. Past due actually. That chair really needed to be put out of its misery.
So last weekend we went to Walmart and bought a new chair. YAY!!!We put it together in about 10 minutes. The old chair came out and the new chair went in. It’s very comfortable and we don’t have to worry about tipping over if we sit back 🙂
Now the old chair sits on the porch. I took the wheels part off the seat. Jon just needs to unscrew the arms and back so we can put it in the trash.
For the next 12 months I plan to follow all the info I have pinned and bookmarked on how to be a better blogger.
Now to find my niche. Most of my posts are about my crochet business, cooking, my upcoming wedding and I think I have a few diet posts. I am not a mom and I don’t understand fashion. Two very popular topics. I love to garden and organizing. I am a wanna be gamer and I have a cat. Looks like Lifestyle wins. Maybe a Tips, Tricks and How to blog?
There are so many people blogging about the same thing. So why do I want to I want to be a blogger? I love words, typing and sharing. I don’t want to be famous. Too much attention makes me nervous. I hope I can help someone with what I ramble about.
Over the next week I plan to set some goals for this blog and myself. I just read a post from one of the ladies in my fb blog groups.She talked about goal setting and made a lot good points. Please check out her post.
12 months seems like a long time. Just enough time to understand all I need to know. Meet new people. Learn new things, get things organized!
My first task before I get started… Work on my about page.
