This scarf is made from acrylic yarn and is 45 inches long and 3 inches wide. It’s long enough to wrap around your neck several times or be left to drape down.
Next week a new one will be up! :D
I am very pleased with the sunscreen since it’s all hot now and I’m doing my level best to wear as little clothing as possible. It’s not thick and gross on my skin and even though I could do without the smell, it’s not terrible. I’m more likely to pass it on to the kiddo who likes perfumey stuff like that.
The rest I have not tried yet but I like the idea behind the adventure box. It’s a cool theme! I hope they keep doing cool themes like that because just when I think of cancelling, they send something like this. :)
I’ve been diligent about my stash busting so it’s time to start posting what I’ve finished! :D
This pink cammo scarf is 55in long and 8in wide. It’s crocheted with acrylic yarn. I’m enjoying using up all the yarn I bought. It’s such a shame that it’s so easy to see pretty yarn and buy it without even a project in mind. So, expect to see a lot of scarves and washcloths being posted here in the future. Since those work up really fast and are easy for me to do, it’s my sure fire way to bust my yarn stash for good. :)
Holy crap, I have been so busy I really did just hunker down and work. In addition to regular library work, I’ve been pretty darn popular over at Otakus and Geeks. I have so many books to review, I can barely keep up! On top of those, I actually filled my kindle! I didn’t know you could a do that but yes, I have found to many free books that interest me, there’s so little space left, the kindle glitches out and can barely run sometimes.
This… Has done little to keep me from buying more though. XD
I’ve been making it a point to clear off the shorter stories and novellas to make room. It’s not easy with all the books to review but hey, it’s not like I don’t enjoy reading!
I have also posted another VERY short story on Amazon. In fact, it’s so short, I posted it for free at first, but Amazon won’t let me price it any lower than $0.99. It’s a quick little lesbian erotica I wrote that did not get accepted to an anthology. I figure I have it, its there, why waste it? But keep in mind, it’s smutty and very short. A cute little slice of life thing for grownups only. I am impressed with how much it’s sold but hey, when the words “erotica,” “lesbian,” and “free” are all in the same product description, people click pretty fast. Ah, the almighty power of porn. And I am not above taking advantage of that to pay the bills, people.
The story I’m working on now is a short fantasy story with slightly less smut and a heterosexual couple. This one I fiddled with too long and missed the deadline for the anthology I was writing it for. :p It’s a sweet story but longer so when I post it, it will be slightly more expensive. But I look forward to finishing it and expanding my finished works. Once all my short stories are finished, I will get back to the First Brood series. I promise. It is just really bothering me to have so many unfinished projects just sitting there when they could be finished so quickly.
I will try and update the blog more often. LootCrate and Birchbox updates will resume this month, I’ve been tapped for a possible geek girl themed podcast, I’ll be going to Book Expo, and I’m already applying for my professional pass to NYCC. And yes, I have still been keeping up with my workouts for the cosplay plans I have. They are epic. :D I am slowly building up a new shop for my needlework (hopefully will open this summer).
Things are really coming together! I can hardly believe the good fortune I’ve had so far but hey, I’ve worked my ass off for this shit! Look forward to seeing more! :D
I was poking around the interwebz (as I am wont to do) and I found this:
And you know how Lenni finds it hard to turn down a challenge. I don’t expect to look like the lady in the picture (nor do I want to, honestly) but when I read this and my first thought was “Shit, I can’t even do one pushup” I didn’t like that I thought that way. I want to be able to lift my own body weight if I’m being chased by zombies or warewolves or fangirls or whatever.
Since there’s no time like the present, I’ll be starting this today. Game on, bitches! >D
When the opportunity presented itself to have a geek/nerd box delivered to my house every month, I JUMPED at the chance. These are so cool, I can’t even. I’m even scared to open most of this stuff!
The novel in there is Ready Player One, which I will admit I have never heard of but I’m excited to read and I will be reviewing it.
I am undecided on whether or not to give the doll to my kid to draw on or draw on it myself. The robot I will try and I’m not into dice games so if anyone out there wants them, feel free! I love sharing things from the boxes I get. :)
Next time I will get a better picture since I snapped this with my phone for Instagram. I’ll even try to pick it all apart and show you everything in it. They have awesome stuff.
I’m not to impressed with the perfume but I am VERY picky about what scents I put on. Chances are they will never send me a perfume I fall madly in love with again because of that. As for the rest, I’m pleased! Lip gloss is my go to lip product (over lipstick) and I am a stickler for having soft, moisturized hands. Blemishes aren’t really a big deal for me (knock on wood it stays that way) so I may give away the cleanser and mask. You never know who can use them. :)
