Leaves set free – poem 

The air so cool and leaves set free,

Swooshing to a place id like to see, 

With animals hiding to keep themselves warm, 

Birds are fleeing away fast like a bee swarm,

The fox and owl find food to eat, 

And the red breast Robin finally lands his feet, 

The air so cool and the leaves set free, 

Each is an animal I’d love to be.

Crochet catch up and stuff

DSCN0407Image source: Mine lol

 

So, i was going to start this week off with another Make up Monday post, but then i got distracted by the fact that today, the 12th is my birthday and i am now 27. Which depressed me, plus i had shit to do okay?

God almighty, why is it when your doing blankets they take forever? Seriously, don’t feel like they are growing especially this one that i posted a picture of. The pattern i am following is here in case you are wondering. I’m pretty sure people interact with me on instagram and then i forget lol!
So, i think i mentioned i have two more mini unicorns to make which is for the two blankets order. Which all need to be done by the end of October, so pray for me guys because you know me and my mind gets distracted. I’ve had a new game for my birthday, and i’ve got shit loads of ideas in my head for writing AND makeup releases.
MAKE SURE I STAY ON TRACK GET ORDERS DONE.

Already have two more orders to do right after these little buggers are done 😦 When will it end? One being a custom doll, and a bloody mermaid tail. YEP they are creeping back…. Also need to get in the festive mood, bah humbug. I found this awesome pattern for gonk’s and an add on pattern for outfits and because my stall in December is going to be at the fire station i am going to make some mini fire men.
Also need to make poppies, but don’t think i’ll have time. I might make a poppy wreath and do a little auction or something on Ebay so you guys and anyone else can get involved and get the money raised sent to the British legion.
My lead for my camera has arrived so i can link it up to my laptop and use it as a live view screen whilst filming, so tomorrow i am going to film my first beauty video and then go straight into filming a little crochet tutorial 😀
and because my Youtube channel is going to be Lifestyle, i need your help in what type of videos i could do other than crochet/craft and beauty. ????????????

I had this awesome story idea, and i am going to write it up over the weekend. I’ve stored it in my brain so i  hope its all in tact as i hateeeeeeeeeee jotting stuff down.
It might be longer than usual, but i am really kind of excited about this.

My mum bought me a new bullet journal and some water colour brush pens for my birthday. I am going to do a post about my gifts not because i want to brag but it will give me an excuse to post about this scarf i’ve kind of started for myself.. You see, swaying off track with my orders.
Oh yeah, bullet journal. So i aren’t going to use the new one until January, which means i can take the full on piss with the one i currently have. As it has LOTS of pages left and was thinking of carrying it over for next year, but i think i will crack on with it and i haven’t used it this month, i think i will start it this weekend for October. I have been using it more for lists and getting organised with stuff i have.

Example, i have over 700 DVDs, which isn’t alot i know but i want to write down every single one i have, and if i have collections that aren’t completed i need to note down what i need etc.

I did a point to this post, i’ve gotten lost. HELP HELP HELP!!! OH yeah i am writing another post for tomorrow as i am reviewing an eyeshadow palette.

Tomorrow, in the morning because i love the morning time in Autumn and winter, i am heading down the road to my park and take some pictures. Hopefully nobody will think i am a freak, pervert or will try and steal my camera.

Just looked at the picture above and I’ve already thought of another story, fml.

OKAY so i learned a fact today, Kim Kardashian is a Libran like me. I think i know why i kind of like her? But bitch my birthday is before yours ner ner ner ner. But then you have the one up because your are older and look younger than me. Now i am more depressed.
No seriously, today has been actually depressing for a birthday i got about 4 cards, a phone call from my dad who i’ve never had a relationship with and i had a good old cry earlier when i went to sit on the crapper.
27 and i feel like i’ve achieved nothing. Still in debt, no money, blah blah! I need to change things and i need to do the things i said i would do years ago.
-Write my novel.

Before we wrap this up, here is some things about my star sign. OH and i’ve been keeping an eye on the lunar calender is it? Ever since i took a picture of the moon and got really close, i got these feelings back from when i was a kid in science class. I’ve always loved the universe, and i think i am going to relive some of my old interests again. Go back to my roots and be happy with the things i used to love. We easily forget about stuff we were once passionate about or cared for because life gets in the way.
So being a science geek once again, and listening to Tupac everyday. I know what a mixture?

Crochet conker – RE-BLOG

 

I saw this post as i am trying to catch up with blogs, and this just filled me up with happy memories as a child.

My grandad would take me on a weekend, usually a Sunday and we would go and find conkers 🙂 I remember use wrapped up warm and rummaging the floor and through leaves for them.
It makes me laugh because i’d have lots and my mum would make comments about washing them because a dog might of peed on them.
Then i would get a hole put in and string attached and play the  conker game.

As i got a bit older, i remember with my street friends (childhood friends, usually my bestie) we would sneak in over the gates of our primary school and play on the playground and then head for the horse chestnut tree and fill our pockets of conkers. We would even find ones not open.

So i hereby declare that i will make it my mission this month, as well as taking my new camera on a journey to collect conkers. I might even make something and put it on my grandads grave in memory.

Happy saturday folks.

 

 

 

I do love Autumn… just when I think I’m going to dread the dark evenings and cold weather, nature gives its autumnal burst of gorgeous colours and each year I find myself falling in love with Autumn all over again! My creativity gets a boost from all that renewed inspiration too. From mushrooms which I […]

Bye Bye August – Random chit chat

DSC_0021

 

Well, as far as crocheting is concerned i am working away at orders and don’t have many finished NEW and exciting WIPs – Except the hat. I have however managed to get back into my bullet journal and now my life is becoming before busier than usual i feel like i need to set routine for my crocheting, especially now i need things to get done.

I aren’t the greatest artist, but i actually took some time with what i’ve put into this month and started a new bullet journal book because i fucked up the last one. And by that i mean i got pissed off with how scruffy it was and threw it out. I have this OCD thing where if a notepad or in this case my bullet journal has too much scruff in it or doesn’t look nice inside i have to have brand new. Which i think related to my hoarding issues because i have ALOT of notebooks that all has the same stuff in it but it’s all been re-written because a few pages in the old one was bit messy.

I have around 6 weeks for my first stall and i have jack shit made, do you also want to know something else about me? Okay, so i have tried all my life to plan etc and i even am trying now but i just cannot plan ahead – I am a last minute person, i always will be. I can’t even plan what i am going to do at the weekend, even though i know i will be doing the same thing like relaxing and gaming but i want to go our Monkey forest but i can’t tell you if i will or what time.

When we wen to Liverpool, i got an open return ticket which means you can catch anytime to and from – But i had planned in my head the exact time i want to arrive so i got the train times and guess what? I got the next one because i was running late.
I think when it comes to the morning and just waking up, it takes me a long time to function. We are talking an hour before i start to move, i tend to relax with a cup of tea check emails, messages watch pointless conspiracy theory videos and then i will have a second cup of tea. I thought this would change since i quit smoking, because that would be in the routine but it hasn’t – So i am fucking lazy basically.
When it comes to over all planning and what time, or what time to meet people its a kind of ‘hey mum lets meet at noonish’ and remember the ISH part, because that then gives me my excuse for if i am running late. ‘Why you so late, you said noon?’ NO mate i said noonish.

And we have swayed way off track, so what were are learning right now is that i have some mental issues – I hoard, i can’t plan, I have weird OCD things.

If i can’t fascinate you with my life and babbling’s how will i ever get people to read my book when and if it surfaces – Again this is where the i can’t plan thing comes into play.
How the foook, am i going to keep track of my bullet journal LOL

So the picture above is my habit trackers for September, Writing being the main one which Crochet should be bigger but the reason i made the writing one bigger is because of the space next to each date. – So the purpose of the habit tracker is to track each day something you do etc, so i will highlight on the day i do these things and with the writing one next to the day i am just going to jot down how many words i do.
I am aiming for the min of 1,000 because sometimes when i write not alot comes out and i don’t want to force too much and then sometimes lots and lots comes out. Hopefully with this i can gauge the average word count and what days i do write for next month and then i will hopefully set a writing routine.

This is actually not a monthly collection/list but this is part of the collections before you start your actually diary/month – I am in the works to do a video, i really fucking promise i’ll do it. I just can’t PLAN when. Have you noticed when i’ve planned to do something and show you guys on my blog i don’t do it – TOLD YOU, planning problems.
I just thought i would create a two page spread of recipes i want to try, one side for me and my boyfriend and the second side solely for me as i am more open minded to trying to new things. OR i could use it for healthy recipes because i am getting more fatter. I need someone to throw salad at me.

I am a free bird, i do what i want when i want.

 

And that is about it, i felt like i need to blog because i was in a chatty mood! Hopefully next week i will post some pictures of what i am working on order wise. I just don’t want to right now because i like to get so far in an order before showing a preview as it keeps that kind of element of surprise! Plus two are blankets and are looooooooooooooooooong.

 

OH OH OH – British bake off has started, i really enjoyed it even though its been taken over by shitty Channel 4 – ADVERTS OMG i can’t cope, sooo i might have to watch it on catch up because at least with BBC one you didn’t have to watch people badly mime a fucking script for tooth paste.

Also started watching the TV series The Vikings, obsessed! Just finished season 1, i believe season 5 starts in a few months so i need to go out and get the rest.

 

OH OH, i haven’t done much in the way of practising my calligraphy or handwriting but it’s my birthday in October and made a list of a few things to get me so i can actually have some kind of guidance/exercise books which i saw on amazon.

 

Book reviews LOLOLOL ok i haven’t finished my current read, i got busy. And now it’s been a few weeks i cant be arsed with that story though it will bug me if i don’t finish it. 

byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! I hope everyone is fine and dandy 😀
