Cell Phone Cozy

This is what i made today, thanks to THIS brilliant tutorial. Anything fits in there, i could use it for either my phone or iPod, and it's not that hard to make. ;)

I also tried something a little more challenging today from 150 Crochet Trims book, the "Elegant Petals" motif, i was pretty proud of myself when i finished it, because it drove me a bit cray with picots.
I really need to go shopping, i don't have one ball of yarn big enough to make anything but motifs, and you need something to put the motif on. We're going to Jerash today for BBQ, can't wait, because i didn't have breakfast yet, and i'm so hungry.

Crochet Love ♥

This was a craft suggested in my school, to sort of finish off the year, i got addicted. I made this because i was bored, i really had no project in mind at all. I started off with motifs and braids, and really enjoyed it.
I learned nothing about crochet in school, i learned from a book called 150 Crochet Trims, it's REALLY awesome, it has practically everything for a beginner, there's a refresher course for the basic stitches and skills.

For the month that's left from summer, i'm taking on all kinds of crafts that i can finish, the things that i can actually get something useful out of, so i discovered Craft Gawker, i don't know if it's a website that has an iPhone app, or an iPhone app that has a website, but it's REALLY awesome. It sort of gets you to DIY tutorials for many different awesome things. I'll post anything i achieve here, i hope i do.

So far I've only made covers for phones and iPods and books, and small teeny-tiny bags, some gifts for my mom and friends and bookmarks, believe it or not, that was the thing i was excited about most, bookmarks, i love this whole crafts thing.

Haven't been here in a while, maybe because i feel like my summer is turning into a big pointless ball of crap, i barely do anything but read. It's just sad, it's not boredom anymore, it's the whole idea of doing nothing different everyday. Next year the vacation is going to be tormented with books and school, which makes things worse this year.
I recently finished reading Memoirs of a Geisha two days ago, and watched the movie  after finishing it. It was sad to finish the book, the whole two weeks of reading it was a nice break, there was at least something to look forward to. Now i'm reading Julie and Julia, i haven't ever watched the movie, but the book is really funny, and filled with food.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II World Premiere!!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥

It was AMAZING, even though i watched the whole thing live (the red carpet thing not the movie), i was crying at the end. I love J.K. Rowling, and i would really love for her to write another book, that was another reason to cry, but we know it's never going to end. After all, she did say "No story lives unless someone wants to listen..." J.K. Rowling has really changed lives, those three, Daniel, Rupert and Emma changed lives. i wanted to be there SO BAD!!! that was partly the reason i was crying, because i wasn't there, but i  am going to watch the damn movie in the cinema when it comes, i don't care how, I HAVE TO. Even DARREN CRISS was at the premiere!
Emma: I’m going to voice what I think everyone in the crowd is already thinking which is that Dan, you didn’t get lucky. You were, and are, the perfect Harry. And will be forever.
Dan: Thank-you. (goes and hugs her)

Everyone looked perfect, including Helena Bonham Carter and Evanna Lynch, Emma Watson was pretty much the best, she wore a gorgeous dress by Oscar De La Renta, and wore Ellie Saab for the after-party.
Yeah, all the pictures are from tumblr.

Back to Writing

I am re-writing the story I wrote for the first competition almost five months ago. The story was really bad, it has some sort of mystery, but it was too long, I mean it was 22 pages. I re-read it, and found in almost every paragraph something wrong and sort of out of place. Hope the new one turns out well.
