May Favorites 2016

A collection of date books and organizers along with a few doll house miniature items.

    With April ending in a much less than desirable fashion I did not have a great deal of energy going into May.  Then I got a sinus infection.  I think I lost nine or ten days to that.  But I got better and I did get to enjoy some of the month.  I also feel like I am in a much better standing than at the start of the month.  So here are some of my favorites from the month.

Things I Love Thursday: Frogs


    We went out on errands this morning and spent a good and pleasant bit of time at the local book store.  While I was searching through the stacks I found a book that I remember Gala Darling talking about on her blog.  "Eat That Frog!"  I have already started reading it.

Things I Love Thursday: Road Trip Photos

A collection of items arranged as a collage on a small wooden table.  Words written on cut out white paper reads: Things I Love Thursday.  Assorted items in collage include: A mint and white teacup and saucer filled with crystal stones, a quartz pendulum, and a plastic macaroon.  A walnut, two (2) red hearts, a snail wearing a black beret, two (2) strands of stone beads (purple fluorite and green aventurine), a bottle of purple nail polish, a pink rose, a silver colored seven pointed star candle holder, a small tan tea pot, a note pad in summery colors with the image of a popsicle on it, and a decorative pen.

    I have been going through the photos I have taken over the years.  Especially those on trips.  Like the epic trip I took with one of my BFFs out to west Texas.  I realized I have a lot of great pictures.  So I have started posting them up on RedBubble.  I am really excited about starting this new venture.  It has given me a boost to my mood to see the great things I have created and seen.  Have you done anything lately that boosted your mood?

Things I Love Thursday: Learning to Use GIMP



    The last few days have been slow going.  I got a sinus infection.  I am already feeling better though; just exhausted.  I have spent a good bit of time at the computer learning to work with GIMP.  I am pretty happy with what I have learned so far.  Take a look at my signature at the end of this post for an example.  Nothing amazing, but I am happy with it.

Things I Love Thursday: Hair Cut!

A collection of items arranged as a collage on a small wooden table.  Words written on cut out white paper reads: Things I Love Thursday.  Assorted items in collage include: A mint and white teacup and saucer filled with crystal stones, a quartz pendulum, and a plastic macaroon.  A walnut, two (2) red hearts, a snail wearing a black beret, two (2) strands of stone beads (purple fluorite and green aventurine), a bottle of purple nail polish, a pink rose, a silver colored seven pointed star candle holder, a small tan tea pot, a note pad in summery colors with the image of a popsicle on it, and a decorative pen.

    Some of my friends decided to cover the cost of me getting a haircut this week after the rough weekend.  I am super grateful for them doing that.  My hair is now super short and versatile.  I can make it look feminine or masculine.  Here is a look at it!  Onward to the good list.

May 2016 Try-Its

    So what are my goals for this month?

    Well first and foremost I want to make a good chunk of progress on my novel.  If I can work on one scene a day I think I can do a good bit of work.

    After that I want to study even more than I did in April.  Both astronomy and French.  I have been using DuoLingo, which is a great resource, but I'd like to start using other resources too.  Like Easy Languages.

    Then there is Fairy Oasis and all the creativity that has to offer.  I want to create more beautiful things to put in the shop.  I already have a few items that should be up soon.  It does take some time to fill out the information for each listing.  But I want to create many more whimsical things to bring happiness to others.

April is Over, May has Begun

    April ended with good things and bad thing.  But the bad things were really bad.  So I have not been completely on my game the last few days.  There was no favorites post for April.  I have yet to even decided what I am doing in May.  But it is all cool.  My family has been super supportive and I am finding my focus again.
