Journal || Christmas

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

I just got this is the mail from a friend of mine! (I didn't even know that you got mail on Christmas Eve..that's me for ya).
Isn't the journal adorable!! I just LOVE the necklace! 
 It is just so cute! I have been really wanting something like this. :)

  I just recently got some new shoes too! They are so cute! 
Sorry for some blurry pictures, my camera likes to shake. :P 

Merry CHRISTmas!!!

"And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn." 
Luke 2:7

Then the angel said to them, "Do you be afraid, for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord." 
Luke 2:10-11

On Christmas Eve we enjoy:
  • Watching the Nativity story
  • Playing card games
  • Cooking food for Christmas
  • Eating snacks
  • Decorating the tree and listening to Christmas music
  • Opening one gift
  • Bringing down our gifts on Christmas Eve night

Merry CHRISTmas all!! 

                                                                 What is your favorite part about Christmas?
                                                                          Do you like necklaces?
                                                                                 Do you have a journal, if so what does it look like?

FAILURE || Chexmix

Monday, December 22, 2014

 Okay, okay, I started out making a paperclip bracelet and made this instead. Yup. That's me, but I did get to the bracelet later only I don't have a picture.. :P 

I tried taking a picture of Christmas lights, in the car..while driving..welll, I suppose that could be expected. But hey, a pretty neat failure if I do say so myself.  

 Today I crocheted some fingerless gloves, or mitts whatever you call them, the things that don't have fingers. ;)
 I was taking this picture, and while I was doing it I was like "*gasp* did I actually get my camera that close to water?!" I was just like, "ooh that would be a neat picture." ;)
My and I made chexmix today! Mmmm..yeahh, I wasn't that hungry later from all that snacking. ;) 


                                                             Do you like making chexmix?   
                                                                        Do you like taking pictures of Christmas lights?
                                                                                     Have you ever made something out of a paperclip?

"Tick tock" || Messenger bag

Tuesday, December 9, 2014

 I just got a new messenger bag!! :D I really love it, I am using it to keep my writing in so I can take it where ever I am. :) It is 13x10 so it's the perfect size to carry around. :) There are lots of pockets, I wish I could have gotten better photos but sometimes my camera wants to play around too much and gets out of focus. :P

I got this adorable clock from a friend for my birthday. I just love the colors and the sound it makes. :) I am one for soothing sounds I suppose. :)

It just SO goes with my blog! :) I just love it!

                            What are your favorite colors?
                                            Do you have a clock like the one above (were there aren't any numbers)?                                                                                      Do you have a messenger bag?

Flakes Falling

Saturday, December 6, 2014

Snow flakes falling, 
The air, seems stalling.

Stick out your tongue,
Breathe through your lungs.

The roads get blocked,
So seems the clocks.

The images I see,
Fade when snow covers trees.

Snow flake falling,
Breath in, keep yawning.

I love writing, it's just something I enjoy, let your mind soar. I am actually writing a novel, or whatever you want to call it. So far I have around 10,000 words and going. It is the most I have never written before, usually I give up before, but not this time! :) 

                                    Do you enjoy writing? 
                                           If so, poetry and/or stories?
                                                 Is there a post that you would like me write about? (comment below)

*this is written by me (Sarah) please be kind and do not steal*

I. can't. stop!

Saturday, November 29, 2014

Oh dear. I am so tired. Today we went rollerblading/skating with our friends. It was AWESOME! It was so fast and fun! We skated for two whole hours, by the time it was done we were so tired, it was a lot of fun! The last time I did that was when I was five or six I think.. I didn't like how slick it was and I was worried it would be slick again for me, thankfully it was fine! It was hard on the turns at first but after going around a hundred times or so it was better.. I fell down two times, one time I kind of slid down, then I did a spin to avoid landing on someone else! :)

They had some games too, but I didn't win anything. I tried the limbo, but..failed.. there was also another game where you chose a corner and they called out a number if you had that number you were out. I think I was out of the 2nd or 3rd round. My older sister won though! :D I love skating, I can't wait to do it again sometime!

                                                           Have you gone skating/blading before?
                                                                     If not, would you want to?
                                                                               Would you play limbo on your skates?

Hot cocoa || Shocked

Friday, November 28, 2014

My friend, Hannah gave me this for me birthday (there were some more as well) and I can't wait to try this one! They all have been/look delicious! You should really check out her blog!
 Hannah also gave me this canvas art! Isn't is beautiful?

I love white Christmas lights! I used to like the colored ones, but I think these ones look more simple.
I like the green cord kind too, you know why? They look better on the tree...and...while decorating the tree I got shocked with the white cord kind! :P Let me tell you, I know why they call it a shock. Finally, something they named right! ;)


I had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Every year seems to be the best. There are so many things to be thankful for, and every 
and year
there are more things to be thankful for.               



                          Do you like colored lights, or white?
                                                                  What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving? 
                                                                Do you like hot cocoa?

Thanksgiving = fooooddddd.........

I'm hungry now, time for some chips and salsa!!

It's my birthday!

Sunday, November 23, 2014

Yup. Today is my birthday. I'm a year older!
For my birthday I went out with my parents for breakfast. I had my favorite: eggs over-easy, toast, and bacon. mmmmm...
 We also went thrift shopping! I got TWO new outfits!! :D
 I am reading Little Men for the second time; I love it!

This is one of my new shirts. It is really neat because it has a hood in the back but from the front it doesn't look like it. It is really comfy. I will have to take pictures of my outfits for you all! 

...I used the oven mitt!

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

 Today, I made mint cookies. Yes, with mint and pinkish red frosting. but I added mint flavoring. 
They are chewy brownie mint, yum!

I did it.
I don't know how, I USED THE OVEN MITT!
In fact, I used one of our best ones,
I was planning on crocheting after making the cookies, buuuut that would have been a challenge. ;) 
 After making cookies, holding my fingers under freezing water for a few minutes, bandaging my fingers, and then putting aloe on them, I went to go get my camera that was charging (but, it had been unplugged from the cord and was completly dead!) So, I waited a while longer for it to charge, then took some pictures, this was on the window, it was like a blizzard today... 
 It's wayyyyy deeper than this now; I went out a little while ago. It's like really deep. 
 I went outside this evening to take some pictures, snow is crazy to take fun  pictures of!

                                                       Have you ever gotten burned? 
                                                                 Do you like taking pictures of snow?
                                                                           Do you have any snow right now; if so, how much?

I updated my "About" page; check it out! :) 

Big flakes..wait. what?

Friday, November 14, 2014

Yep. It has snowed. A couple of times actually!... I don't know whether to be excited or not.. ;) You see, I like snow. But when it gets into January, February, March, April, and sometimes May...well you know. 
So, let's stick to the positive, shall we?

  • Sweaters + blankets + cold = coziness
  • Christmas music 
  • Crocheting in the evenings..
  • Having snowball fights *take cover!*
  • Sledding..
  • Hot cocoa + melted marshmallows = the. best. thing. ever.
  • Decorating your room with Christmas lights = awesome!
  • Christmas shopping!
  • 2015 a whole new year, filled with NO mistakes. yet. 
  • The warmth of the Christmas tree in the evenings
  • The Christmas cheer
  • and more things that will come to my mind later...

That's life...

Well, somehow, I embarked on this adventure. It's probably not the kind of adventure you are thinking of at this moment, outdoors, trees, ect. But, it may be an adventure for you crocheted out there, so onto it.


I am embarking in the journey of crocheting a sweater... Somehow, I just decided to do it, that's not usually like me, I usually plan.. So anywho, I had some purple yarn, and decided to start! 

I just bought two more skeins of yarn yesterday, and today, I finished the back part, now I have the front, and sleeves. 

Sorry for the horrible pic, I just thought you would like to see... I have to make another one of these, and two long sleeves. They took me about, one and a half days, (not crocheting the whole time!) I found the pattern in a book, (which name escapes me at the moment...) The purple it lighter, it is really pretty. 
I am now working on the second part, the front. It's going pretty good! :) 
This is how it should turn is how I'm hoping it will turn out.. ;) I will show it to you when I finish it! (Hopefully with better pictures, it's a gloomy day today..) 

                                            Do you like sweaters? 
                                                      Have you ever made something like this?
