  1. Sandi--I love that you love the Toby Daye series. It is pretty awesome! I would be curious to discuss with the series with you as well. Granted, my MA thesis was on Adolescent Literature and Transmedia Narratives--and I didn't do much with gender roles/theory, I think it is safe to say that we both love to learn! In fact, I think with this abundance of extra time that I find myself with, I'm going to go back and re-read the Toby Daye books again!
  2. Hi Liliy! *waves!* I was wondering if you read any of Seamus McGuire's October Daye series. It is urban fantasy with some chick lit thrown in. The first book is Rosemary and Rue and there are thirteen or fourteen in the series so far. I love listening to them, but they are a great read as well. (Just a recommendation!) I'm currently reading The Bookish Life of Nina Hill and I know that Kim has read it recently too--I'm looking forward to hearing thoughts on the book and how the second book is going as well. Thanks for joining in and sharing what you've been reading!
  3. Sorry that I'm late to the party, but I did do Morning Pages awhile ago. I cannot remember why I stopped...which may in and of itself be a reason why I stopped! I couldn't do mine digitally. There's something about the pen/pencil (usually pencil) to paper that really helps me get some sort of flow. Mine tended to be stream of consciousness too. What do your writing goals look like? I'm trying to do more personal and not-so-personal writing, but I get stuck. I'm not sure if having the occupation of a teacher makes it hard because it feels like "work" (both types). How do you overcome that and get it done?
  4. Kim, that's how I first started to learn how to Knit--I read Debbie Macomber's Blossom Street series and thought to myself, I want to be in a group with knitters! So I started to knit but couldn't find a group...so I made a Meetup group where we created different things and met up a lot. It was loads of fun. I decided though, that I preferred crocheting--but I had only made things with big thick yarn and it was heavy. Maybe at some point I'll have to try again!
  5. I'd love to see here some creative projects that have been inspired by what you have read/are reading etc. If you haven't made anything like that yet--what are some ideas that you might have from what you are reading (that includes patterns, prompts, whatever) that you might consider creating with?
  6. Take some time to tell us what you're reading--what you genres you like, what's currently by your nightstand or on your TBR shelf!
  7. Hi everyone! I'm kinda new at this, but I am really looking forward to discussing what we're reading both on the forums and perhaps once or so a month via video chat. Thanks in advance for your patience! I'm really looking forward to chatting with everyone!
  8. Thanks for what you are doing! I am going to go check it out!
  9. Daisy, Your post made me LOL! I'm thinking about all of the times I look at instructions and think, welp--SOMEBODY failed Tech Writing! I hope that you got it fixed to your liking. Is it alright if I plan on using the materials I'm comfortable with using/already have? I'm thinking I may be more adventurous later but for now, that's my plan.
  10. Not at all! I am pretty proud of it!
  11. It is finished! I am making at least one more as they will be going to a friend and her daughter in Pakistan.
  12. I am half way (I think). I am trying to decide between 6, 8, or 10. I have no idea how tall it should be. I hope everyone is doing well!
  13. This is AWESOME! I've always wanted to do something like this! @daisywreath I think that early January goes well with the initial gumption of wanting to be creative, etc--especially since in the past few years @Kim Werker has the Year of Making going. This would be a good outlet for that since the idea is to create/make a bit every day. If you are worried about it being busy--I have a feeling for most of us it is busy any time of the year. Those are my thoughts, though--I hope it helps! Looking forward to this!
  14. Wow! That is amazing! Good luck! I used to love Lion Brand but some of it was really hard to work with. Can't wait to see the photo opp!
  15. And likely quite warm! What type of yarn are you using and such?
