52 Weeks Of Swatches: Pumpkin Swatches – Week 10

Today I will be sharing pumpkin swatches that came about after seeing this colorful photo of pumpkins and squashes. That blue pumpkin? That was a real surprise for me and what draw me to the photo. As always, photo is courtesy of Freestock. HEX color codes are noted on the circles so feel free to use the colors in your own projects.

Share Your World 2014 Week 13

It’s time for another Share Your World Monday where Cee picks our brain and delivers great and entertaining questions for the rest us of bloggers. I have a question for Cee though, I am curious whether or not she was a fly on my wall last week and spied on me while I indulged myself in some TV shows.

Do you believe in extraterrestrials or life on other planets?
I believe there is life on other planets, simply because the universe is too big, too unknown, and in my opinion it’s highly improbable (nothing is impossible) that we are alone. I usually watch the UFO shows on History Channel as well as Ancient Aliens. That says something about my answer no?

What type of pet or pets do not want to have?
I would have to draw the line at snakes/spiders/scorpions. My husband is deeply saddened because he would like a snake but I kind of, sort of, batted my eyelashes at him and he gave up on that idea. At least for now. Now he wants a monkey. Sigh….


If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
Why blue of course.

What type of transportation would you be? Why?
A plane. Soaring high among the clouds, nothing but birds next to me. Total contradiction since I am afraid of heights.


March Updates

This is going to be a short post, mainly because I don’t really like talking about myself much without feeling like I’m bragging but I am super excited that I had to share this with the world (or.. you know, those who read my crazy ramblings)!

As most of you know, I am a web designer by trade but my second love has always been writing. I love writing, however I was always afraid to call myself “a writer”, “an author”, or god forbid add any adjectives to it like “aspiring writer”, “author wannabe” (word of note: don’t do that-it seriously kills the professional image you are trying to portray). I only had one poem published and that was in a local teen magazine-not much of an accomplishment.

For years, I wanted to add writer to my bio, or an author, but it wasn’t until I started blogging publicly that I had allowed myself to even classify me as such. It looks like the blog I am running with my husband is starting to pick up some traction. We have been interviewed for a couple of other blogs: one of them is Adventure in Croatia and you can read the interview here. The others are yet to be published so I am not linking to them.

I have guest posted for Chasing The Donkey and shared some secrets about my place of residence.

The biggest deal about March is being invited to be a contributor for Morsels and Juices, a new portal for women writers. They caught my post in one of the Facebook groups and liked it so much that they wanted me to be a contributor on their portal. I am excited about this because I am not tied into a particular topic and I get to connect with other women who are pursuing creative writing!

I can honestly say that I am delighted like a little girl who’s been brought to a candy store! This gives me the courage to see what else is out there for me when it comes to writing and maybe even get brave enough to make a pitch for a guest post on a few other sites I had my eyes on!

I think I will wrap this up for now before I get all awkward because I am putting myself out there!

Share Your World Week 12 2014

I am jumping straight in, had lot of things happen last week and am working on updating you guys with everything that’s been going on!

What is your most favorite smell/scent?

Rose. And coconut. Depends on which scent we are discussing. I prefer my lotions to smell like coconut. Anything else, I’ll take the rose scent.

How do you write: computer, longhand or other?

Depends on the occasions. Sometimes computer, sometimes notebook/longhand.

Your favorite blog post that you have written? (add link)

A post I wrote on Our Blended Marriage about the things I want to teach my daughter.

What’s one of your favorite books from childhood?

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Still is.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am grateful all of us finally got over the flu, and my very first guest post!  I don’t know yet what I am looking forward to in the upcoming week, maybe the fact that I have been asked to be a contributor to a relatively new site for women writers (details coming later this week!); or the fact that I will get a chance to work with Genesis for a client. Can’t make up my mind between the two!


52 Weeks Of Swatches: Misty Swatches – Week 8

This image caught my eye for week 8 of 52 weeks of swatches, which resulted in some misty swatches. The image looks mysterious and intriguing so I had to play with it and see what I can come up with. As usual, image is courtesy of Freestock. The HEX codes have been noted on the color circles and you are more than welcome to use them in your own projects. Feel free to leave any thoughts in the comments or even a link to a project if you used one the of the swatches.
