Hello everyone- Happy Easter Sunday to you all 🙂 🙂
So I took the plunge 13 days late and joined camp nano to help finish off my fairytale story (or at least nearly finish it) I have set a word count of 5k so fingers crossed will get near to that this time as not as tough as nanowrimo limit :s
Also I have unpacked my big A2 paper and drew a tiara shopkin for Jess to put on her wall (she drew cookie while I was drawing tiara was a nice crafty session) – Anyone else have a lil shopkin fan?
Here is the drawing- took roughly an hour 🙂
Now to type up a book cover reveal party to post on here tomorrow!
Thanks for reading!

Gosh blink and its April! Good job fairytale deadline has moved to July as had no time really with going back to work- moving-bsl exams and wedding prep! phew…. also didnt have my laptop to hand for a while 😦
So talking of moving when I unpacked a box my very first story I wrote when I was a teenager was hidden inside a book :s brought back many memories of one day possibly selling a book and doing author signings (lol for signings but glimmer of hope for selling one) I called it ” The diary of Lisa Jones” and its written in diary entry form! Might put few snippets of it later in the year for a laugh and to compare my writing style now….
Also found was an old “bucket list”
We are nearly all unpacked and settled- becoming more like home everyday 🙂 Because I have not had laptop I have not been able to complete the author life month on my facebook page :s But im back on blog (again) and have lined up a few things in the next few weeks 🙂 They are:- 3 author interviews, a cover reveal party and snippets for some writing 🙂
I also have an idea for a childrens book but that will be some point down the line 🙂
Right now for a cuppa before some BSL revision….
Thanks for reading and following- say hello and let me know how your week has been! 😛

This morning I thought I would show you the balloons that I have twisted so far (I began last year in June for Jess birthday- I wanted to make her a dog and a giraffe) and its quite addictive and so much fun!
Here are my collection so far:
We have a giraffe, a monkey, a dog, a poodle and a bunny 🙂
Going to try some more animals and maybe a flower (two balloons) lots of ideas on instagram and pinterest! So many amazing ones that one day I hope to be able to do 🙂

So recently I caught the sickness bug and then a cold hence quite around here- but I have also made the decision to merge my blogs together into one creative blog 😀 yay
This week I have been getting back into drawing mode 🙂 here are my latest drawings:
I really enjoyed going back to drawing and getting creative again! These pictures didnt take long to draw either so I am hoping to do one a day 🙂
Many thanks for being patient and following
Remove the Last Obstacle to Ultimate Success
In The Big Leap, New York Times bestselling author Gay Hendricks reveals a simple yet comprehensive program for overcoming our one barrier to happiness and fulfillment, providing a clear path for achieving our true potential and attaining not only financial success but also success in love and life. (Amazon)
It took me months to get into this book and took alot of motivation to finish it! It had some (and mean only few) good points but felt the book dragged on and it got very boring- and for a self help book that is not good. The upper limit problem was interesting but could not relate to the case studys and was not much detail in a practical sense of what you can do to solve it. Dissapointing read for me but I know it has worked and been enjoyed by others.
So today I am back writing for the fairytale competition as deadline is April!
Also I am doing the Author life month challenge 🙂 (pop over to my facebook page to have a look https://www.facebook.com/writingandpiccys )
Things have been hectic (always is though) what with BSL exam looming and another mock presentation to learn and practise not had much time or energy to write as well as trying to enjoy the last of my maternity leave as back in April! Oh and the impending move house!! Brain=frazzled! Not to mention wedding planning!!!! :O
But do have a few Author interviews lined up and a book review (or two) for you all and maybe even a few snippets 😛
Right time to drink my tea before it gets cold (again)
