This post is a day late due to some technical difficulties!
As an update, I submitted my short story for the Kindle UK contest and am now awaiting for it to be reviewed. It’s called: Dear Diary, Today I Woke Up A Werewolf. I’m pretty excited, it’s my first fantasy diary format I’ve done. I’m hopeful it will do well! I’ll let you know once it’s up on Amazon 🙂
On another note, Today I visited the Intercultural Senior Center in Omaha and volunteered to teach an art class June 8th at 12:00 p.m. =^.^= It will be my first time teaching at a senior center, so I’m a little nervous yet excited! I will be teaching them how to make tissue paper flowers (carnations to be exact).
To add to it, I’ve attended several meetings this past week (including the weekend!) and worked at the Veterinary Clinic as well – Busy! Busy! Oh, and also happy belated Mother’s Day to Mom’s (both the Fuzzy animal kind and little people kind!)
Have a great evening! Thanks for reading!
Tick’s are bad near the water right now, I’m still finding them from my shoes on my Sunday hike! (Little rascals!)
Twas a beautiful weekend here in Nebraska! On Sunday went to Fontenelle Forest with my dad, which was amazing! Caught some sun, breathed in fresh air, and even walked around barefoot on the hiking trails for some grounding. I love being out in nature! Climbing tree’s, taking in the scenery, listening to the wild life, smelling the flowers, feeling the cool earth and plants beneath my feet… Such a wonderful and beautiful thing to me.
Working on my next eBook 🙂 It’s going to be a short read – Journal style – and about a girl who realizes she’s a werewolf =^.^= I’m going to have it done by May 15th 2017! So exciting! I’ll keep everyone updated when I publish it!
My first step is to finish writing it, which I already have about 10 book pages worth so far. Then I need to type it up and create a good book cover for it, which I enjoy doing. After that making sure the formatting is correct, then publishing it! Okay there may be a few steps I’m combining in there, but that’s the gist of it!
Well unto my writing! Going to work on it some before I head off to bed.
I created some green items for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. A little delayed being it’s tomorrow x.x Though they are still pretty even after the day for wearing green.
Shamrock Green Scorpion
Green/Gold Turtle Set
Green Lizard Set
In addition, I created a new pattern: the Cockatrice. It is my depiction of the mythical beast, having bat like wings, scattered feathers, and an unkempt/uneven tail. Depending on which mythology and area, these creatures use petrification or poisonous breath, bite, and/or even a death glare (no really, one look could kill). Despite these deadly tales, the cockatrice’s I make are more guardian’s and watchers than death bringers.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! And a happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Testing out new coloration’s of my beaded patterns. I shall take photos as I complete them ^.^ As a little spoiler, it’s in celebration for June 17th – 24th 🙂 I shall have a longer post later this week with pictures!
Hope you have a great evening! Thanks for reading!
One of my other patterns I made up while in Washington ^.^
The chimera in mythology generally has three heads: Dragon, Lion, and Goat – with a lion’s body and either a snakes tail or a scorpion tail. My version has a snake tail, which fits well with the end of the wire because I made a tongue out of it 🙂 Also the snake tail seems to keep the front from being too top heavy (which I found to be a little bit of an issue with Cerberus – he’s top heavy). I set a quarter next to the finished prototype to show how small the seed beads are I work with. The chimera is barely twice as big as the quarter! LOL I might make my next Chimera with a scorpion tail just to see how it comes out, which it might look similar to the manticore except with three heads.
Hope everyone had a great weekend! Have A Goodnight ❤ And thank you for reading 🙂
