Sorry I haven't contacted you! My laptop decided to go into a coma on Thursday and I just got to the store today to purchase a new computer. I'm ready for the send out, I'll be messaging Riley in just a few :)
Again, sorry about that!
Tried to send a message to both Heather and Riley and it didn't work. It just gave me a message saying that page did not exist :/ either way, I'm still ready for the send out
As a self taught crocheter I have to say that figuring out how to control my tension (wrapping the yarn around my fingers to control the flow of yarn) was the hardest thing. Once I got that down, it was smooth sailing for me!
I used two resources, The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller and the website http://www.hookandneedles.com/ for tutorials/explanations.
Also, it would probably be handy if you had a foot or leg injury that causes you to be bed ridden. I know that it did wonders for keeping me from running away from my beginners projects XD
We initially spoke, because I had a cold and was going to send out a bit late. We also exchanged info in the same message. I sent another message last Monday saying her package should be there soon, but I haven't heard anything since.
I've taken the test a few times and usually get sorted into Ravenclaw. I've also gotten Hufflepuff too :)
Whenever I dress up for HP events, I'm almost always Ravenclaw. Although at times I have been a death eater :)
Anyone in the US, specifically Southern California, been to Whimsic Alley in Santa Monica? SO FUN!
COK Name: Sedna
Newbie/vet: Newbie-ish (I've done one swap, Lo's tiny plush swap)
Country: USA (California)
what you would like your envelope to include/not to include:
Hedgehogs, stickers, retro pictures, owls, things from nature (pressed flowers/leaves, sea glass, pebbles), ribbons, ethnic things, small journals, soft yarn. I'm not too picky :)
What makes you happy: the smell after rain, reading a really good book, visiting museums, being with friends, drinking tea, going for walks, and crocheting.
Oh! Oh! Me please :D
I've never done a swap, but I looove making and receiving plushies! So if someone wouldn't mind taking a newbie like me under their wing, I'd be honored :)
Name: Danielle aka Sedna
Location: Orange County, California
Likes: Most things! I especially love hedgehogs, birds, peacock feathers, coral, elephants, bicycles, and ponies. I love all plushies though, from cube bunnies to sandwiches to zombies. Adorable plush zombies are so funny!
Dislikes: Nothing really, I'm a lover of all things :)
Anybody else read this series?
I'm obsessed with it XD I work in a bookstore and recommend it daily to customers and coworkers. I've also gotten my mom, sisters, and somewhere around 20 friends/friends of friends/ friends of parents hooked.
Suzanne Collins has created an amazingly horrible future dystopia reminiscent of 1984 and The Handmaids Tale, except for teens! And her cliff hangs- geez do I hate her! I threw the book at the wall for the conclusion of the second book, Catching Fire, yelling "Where is the rest of the book?!?!?!" hehehe
Too bad the series got so big, because Scholastic decided not to release an Advanced Readers Copy for Mockingjay. August 24 seems soooo far away!
Cassandra Clare is writing a new series too, a prequel to the Mortal Instuments (City of Bones, Ash, and Glass) called the Infernal Devices. The first book, Clockwork Angel, will be coming out August 24 (same day as the new Hunger Games, ahhhh). The series takes place in London during the 1800. When City of Glass came out, Clare came to the book store I work at and read us an exert and it sounded AMAZING. Needless to say I'm super excited! The other two books, Clockwork Prince and Clockwork Princess, will be out over the next 2 years
Huh, what do you know, my form of doodling has a name, LOL
Drawing these kind of intricate doodles have always relaxed me, I've recently been getting back into them
Here are some of my older drawings:
ALL of them are heavily influenced/ripped off of a hodgepodge of different sources. I can only claim that I indeed drew them, although I was was not the original creator :)
Guess I will now be able to google a ton more inspiration now that I have a term for my favorite form of art :D
I used to get wicked optical migraines every evening between 7 and 8. They were super debilitating, my head felt like it was too "full", my eyeballs felt like the were being pushed outta my head, and I had sensitivity to light. I was about to go get drugs from the doc to fix me up, and I just happened to mention my headaches to a friend. She told me that she had the same migraines and a coworker suggested vitamin B-12, since it promotes healthy brain activity and stuff. She said her migraines disappeared after a few days of taking it . She said she didn't care if it was a placebo affect or if it was actually working, but her migraines disappeared.
I started taking it a few days later and mine have gone away too. Like she said, whether it is a placebo affect or this stuff is actually working, but I don't care. I got mine from Sprouts, it kind of looks like a smartie hehehe.
My story may be biased because of my lifestyle and health, but since this is just a vitamin I thought I'd share. A few factors that I would guess this worked so well for me are: I'm a vegetarian, so I already lack in B vitamins already. I wear glasses (although I recently had a check up, so this reeeally shouldn't matter). I also have some pretty horrible allergies to dust and pollen with reactions varying from horrible sneezing fits, to chronic red-eye, to headaches.
Hope this was helpful :)
PS I agree that lavender makes me feel better when I have minor headaches. I bought a really wonderful sleep mask full of lavender and it is wonderful :)
I'm very frustrated with my life- I'm 23 and have NO idea what I want from life. Its depressing to think that at the young age of 23, I feel like such a failure and like I can get nothing done. I took a few years off of college to figure out what I wanted, yet it did me no good. Now I'm behind in my education and have no motivation to finish off what I started. I love my job, working in a large chain bookstore in the states, but could not possibly support myself continuing to work in retail. I'm considering joining the US Navy, for their nursing program, since nursing has been on the back burner for a few years. I'm afraid that by joining the military that I will lose a part of myself, and that I don't have stamina for it. I live with my mom and have a pretty sweet set up- stay in school and get good grades, do all the cooking/ food shopping and I get to live for free. However, my mom and I have been butting heads recently about many things. The only solution I can see is moving out, but I don't have the money blah blah blah...
Also, this BITCH that I used to be friends with has moved back into town. I decided to end the relationship because it was border-line emotionally abusive, and now our mutual friends are giving me a hard time about not wanting to be around her. I understand being selfish- I'm the one that put my friends out and put them in the middle of all this by deciding that my emotional happiness is more important. I have told them that when it comes down to it, invite her over me to any social gatherings. I understand that I am the one that has made this awkward, but they will not stfu about me "forgiving" her. It is not about forgiveness. I know me, and I am easily sway-able. I can see myself being sucked back into that friendship (which she has tried to re instigate) that made me not me. I cannot believe that my friends will not let it go that I am not comfortable being around someone who was so horrible and cannot see what she did wrong.. *sigh*
And last but not least.... my parents, especially my mom, are driving me nuts. My worst attribute is indecision. I don't know what I want to do or how to get to it. And yet my sister, who used to have so much potential, royal screwed herself. And I mean big time. She dabbled in drugs, which ended up in a few prison sentences, making her BA in accounting useless. She is getting back on the straight and narrow, but my mom still acts like I am the fuck up of the family. Really? Cause I'm not the convicted felon, I'm just the one without my AA... I wish that they would be more understanding about my desperation to find some niche that I could happily make money in.
I'm usually a glass-half-full girl, but all the stress about the future/bitchy friends putting stupid high school drama pressure/ the bs with my sister is really wearing me down. The navy is looking better and better every day XD
