What’s My Crochet Personality? Doing a Quiz

Hello everyone! How are you guys doing? I’d love to hear about what you’ve been up to lately in the comments! πŸ˜ƒ

For today’s post, I am doing a quiz! I saw Gelina do a few quizzes recently on her blog, and that kind of gave me the inspiration for this post, so thanks Gelina!

I looked up a crochet quiz, and found this one: “Crochet personality – which one are you? Take our quiz and find out!” I thought it sounded fun, so I’m going to be doing that for today’s post.

This is a really fun quiz!! Here’s the link to the quiz from Happily Hooked, so if you want to do it, go ahead! I’d love to hear what you get in the comments!
I normally finish 2-4 projects per week. Sometimes it’s more if I make more small things, like keychains, and sometimes it’s less if I’m working on something bigger like a blanket. But on average, probably 2-4!
I buy the most acrylic, but cotton’s my favorite overall!
I actually don’t have that much yarn (maybe because I don’t have enough money to buy much yarnπŸ˜†) but I do loooove it!!
I’ve had a few family members and friends buy things from me, but I don’t really have a business or anything.
I love making granny squares, and have actually thought of making a whole bunch and doing a blanket! I just wouldn’t use the colors in the picture. Maybe I’d do different shades of blue! That would look so nice!
I usually just buy my yarn from Walmart! πŸ˜‚
I didn’t know what that was until I looked it up just now. The definition is: “Yarn bombing is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fiber rather than paint or chalk.” (From Wikipedia.)
I follow a few crocheters and designers, yes, so I chose the second one!

And I got……

I actually think that this kind of is like me. I love photographing my crocheted projects and I love blogging about crochet!!

Thank you so much for reading! I’d love to hear what you got in the comments, or what your answers would have been to the different questions!! Again, here is the link to the quiz I did today! Okay, well, see you on Wednesday! Bye!! ☺


Celebrating 50 Followers: A Q&A Post! (Part two)

I can’t believe I haven’t posted for two weeks! But, anyways, I’m here with part two of the Q&A! Here’s part one, if you haven’t read it yet. I’ll be answering the rest of the questions from this post. Okay, here we go!

────── β™‘ ──────

Rajonya’s questions

If you could be an animal or mythical creature what would you be?

Hmmm… πŸ€” maybe a cat, but I don’t really know. Cats can be social sometimes, but are also pretty independent.

Dogs or cats?

I’d go with cats, but I don’t hate dogs or anything!

Favorite series?

What??? How do you expect me to answer this!?!? Okay, I have a lot…I guess I’ll choose one from each genre I read πŸ˜…. Contemporary: “To all the Boys I’ve Loved Before” series by Jenny Han. πŸ’Œ Fantasy: “An Ember in the Ashes” series by Sabaa Tahir. Dystopian: “The Hunger Games” series by Suzanne Collins. I don’t really know any for historical fiction, because most of them are just standalones!

Cookies or cupcakes?

I guess it would depend on the type of cookie or cupcake. Overall, I’d go with cookies though. But, I like to bake cupcakes better; they are so fun to decorate!!

Wanna collab?

Sure, I’d love to!!

Heidi’s questions

What is your favorite part about blogging?

I love getting to know different people, who share my interests! I think that that’s a very big part of blogging. I also really love sharing posts with others. And, reading other people’s awesome posts is so fun too!

What is your favorite thing you have crocheted?

I love to make so many things!! Maybe I would choose the crocheted pumpkins I made last fall. I just really love how the pattern turned out! It was definitely my favorite pattern I designed. I also like making amigurumi dolls (this is my favorite pattern!) because they’re so fun to customize, and I love making different clothing and hair colors for each of them! ❀

Are you an animal person?

I like animals a lot, but I’m not super into them. I do absolutely love my cat, Luna, though.

Addie’s questions

When is your birthday?

I don’t know if I feel comfortable answering that, so I’m not going to.

Favorite thing about 2021?

I liked blogging; this was my first year with a blog, so that was a pretty big thing! I also liked that I got to visit family more than usual, too! 😊

What is the first thing you look for in a person?

Well, I think that a friend should be nice and kind, but I think that being trustworthy is a really good trait for everyone to have.

What would a perfect day look like for you?

I guess I’d wake up early, then go for a run by the lake. After that, I’d eat breakfast, and then write a little by the lake. Then, I’d probably go shopping and maybe go out to lunch with some friends. Maybe go to the library then, and pick up some ice cream. When I got home, I would probably go for a walk, spend some time with family, and then maybe watch a movie and eat some ice cream!!

pertsfarms questions:

What is your favorite piece of furniture?

Probably a really comfortable chair that I could read or crochet in!!

Favorite species of wood?

Uh, I’ve never really thought of this.

Hannah’s questions:

What is your favorite stories of saints and favorite book(s) of the Bible?

Great questions! I love Saint Gianna’s story because she was just an ordinary person–a wife, mother, and a physician–but she was really brave to sacrifice her life for her child’s. Click here to read more about her.

As for my favorite book of the bible, I’d probably choose the book of Psalms or Genesis.

Lydia’s questions:

What are some things you are looking forward to this year?

I’m looking forward to a nice year of blogging, but besides that, I’m looking forward to just having a fun year with family! πŸ˜ƒ

What’s something interesting or uncommon that you like about yourself?

I don’t really know. Maybe that I crochet, because I don’t really know any other teenagers who like crocheting.

If you had three wishes, what would they be?

Some people might think I’m crazy, but I don’t think I would actually want three wishes. Think about how much one wish could change everything…or, maybe I’d use one wish and if it made a good impact on everything I would keep it, but if it turned out to make everything worse, I’d use one of my other wishes to reverse it.

────── β™‘ ──────

Okay, so thank you for reading! I’d love to know what you would have answered to some of these questions, in the comments!!

Again, thanks for all the questions you guys asked! This was a really fun post to write up!! I’m going to have a fun crochet-related post on Saturday, which I’m looking forward to doing. Okay, well, see you guys then!!

Celebrating 50 Followers: A Q&A Post! (Part one)

Hello, welcome or welcome back to my blog! 😊

Today’s post is the Q&A post I’m doing to celebrate 50 followers!! Last Wednesday, I did a post labeled “Thank You For 50 Followers”! Thank you so much for all the questions!!

Because I got so many questions, I am going to split it into two separate parts. This is part one, and I’ll publish the second part on Saturday!!

So, if you have any more questions, this is your last chance to ask them on this post!!

Okay, here are the questions:

────── β™‘ ──────

Lydia’s question

What are some of your favourite memories?

This is a hard one! There are so many good memories I have!! I loved the time last summer when I went and visited relatives for a few weeks!! It was so fun! But, there are many more amazing memories I have; that’s just the first one that came to mind. πŸ™‚

Raegan’s questions

What is your favorite thing to do with your free time?

I have a lot of hobbies–reading, writing, crocheting, photography, running, soccer–and I usually do one of those when I have nothing else to do!! I also like to go outside, go on walks, and I love to play with my cat, Luna.

If you could have any animal as a pet, what animal would you choose?

Ooh! I don’t know! I like bigger dogs, but cats are also just…so perfect!!! I think that I’d have to go with a cat!

What is your favorite holiday?

I love Christmas!

Rylie’s questions

Standalones or series?

I like both! Standalones are just great quicker reads that don’t require much dedication. But I love series because there’s so much that goes on during them! You get to follow the characters through a lot. I think that if I had to choose my favorite, I’d pick series, but I like both.

Do you listen to music a lot?

Yes! I love listening to music while writing, reading, and running! I think that it’s also a really good stress-reliever! I listen to a lot of Taylor Swift (I’m actually listening to her 1989 playlist while I write this!) and I also listen to Christian music!

Favorite age group of kids?

I like babies, but they can sometimes be…a little too much to handle. I like kids that I can play with, and talk to, but I don’t like when they’re too old. I think that I like the 2-5 age range best!

Gelina’s questions

All time favorite dessert?

I love ice cream!! It’s just sooo good!

Who is your favorite musical artist?

Like I said earlier, I listen to a lot of Taylor Swift! My favorite albums of hers are the 1989 album and Red, as well as the Fearless album!

When did you start blogging?

I started my school blog, where I post essays and other schoolwork, in January of 2021, but I don’t know if I would count that as blogging, because I was just posting essays and stuff for school. After that, I decided to start a blog for fun, and I started this blog on July 1st!!

Do you read a lot?

Yessss!!! I love to read! It’s one of my favorite hobbies.

Suhani’s questions

Favourite blog post you’ve ever written?

Ooh, this was a hard one! I really love making aesthetics, but I think that I’d choose this post as my favorite! I listed 10 small things that I loved because I think that it’s important to focus not only on the big things, but also to think of the small things that give you joy!

Worst book you’ve ever read?

Hmm… I don’t really know. I’ve never really read any books that I’ve hated. Most books are at least okay. Okay, so I looked at some of the lists of books I have, and I guess I’d choose Just Listen by Sarah Dessen. (This isn’t counting any of the books I’ve read for school.) I don’t know if this is the worst, but I didn’t really like it.

Favourite social media app?

I use Instagram a lot. I just have a private account where I can look at my friend’s and family’s posts, to see what they’re up to!

────── ♑──────

That’s all for today’s post!! Again, I’ll be posting part two soon, so keep an eye out for that!!

Okay, so I hope you have a great day, and I’ll see you guys on Saturday!! Bye!

“The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak Book Review (Spoiler Free)

Hey guys! I hope your weekend is going good so far! Anyways, on Thursday, I finished re-reading “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak, and let me tell you: it was just as great (if not better) than I remember it being.

Anyways, here’s the review:

This is a young adult historical fiction book set during WW2 with 550 pages. Like I said earlier, I already read this book last February, so I thought I would re-read it and do a review! Also, this will be a spoiler free review, so even if you haven’t read the book you can read this. I’ll just give my thoughts on the characters, plot, writing, and stuff.

The synopsys from Goodreads:

It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will be busier still.

By her brother’s graveside, Liesel’s life is changed when she picks up a single object, partially hidden in the snow. It is The Gravedigger’s Handbook, left behind there by accident, and it is her first act of book thievery. So begins a love affair with books and words, as Liesel, with the help of her accordian-playing foster father, learns to read. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor’s wife’s library, wherever there are books to be found.

But these are dangerous times. When Liesel’s foster family hides a Jew in their basement, Liesel’s world is both opened up, and closed down.

In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.


β€œA snowball in the face is surely the perfect beginning to a lasting friendship.”

— Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

I think that the characters in this book were really well developed. I love how you get to see Liesel through all five years, and you witness how much she changes through that time. I love Rudy’s character too, as well as Max, Hans Huberman, and Rosa Huberman, and basically just all the characters. This book had such a great cast of characters that felt alive and real.

β€œThe only thing worse than a boy who hates you: a boy that loves you.”

— Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

One of my favorite things about this book is the intriguing narration. This novel is narrated by death, and it’s very interesting how Zusak portrayed it. I absolutely loved it, because it was really different than a lot of other books, and it really makes you think

β€œLike most misery, it started with apparent happiness.”

— Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

The plot of this book is also really good. I enjoyed how the book is set through five years, so there’s a lot that happens. It’s a story about how books can be a light even in the darkest of times, like during WW2.

Overall, I would totally recommend reading this. It’s a very thought-provoking, heartbreaking, and inspiring piece of literature. It’s one of my favorite books, and there’s also a movie of it, so if you’re not really a reader, you could do that. I didn’t like it as much as the book, but it was still really well done.

β€œI have hated words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right.”

— Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

β™‘ β™‘ β™‘

Okay, so thanks for reading! Also, thank you so much for all of the comments and questions on my last post! I am so excited to answer them! I’ll probably do the Q&A post on Wednesday, or next Saturday! Thanks again, and have an awesome day!!

Monthly Wrap-Up: December 2021

I feel like I always start out my monthly wrap-ups by saying something like this: “Oh my gosh, I can’t believe it’s already this month”. So today I’m going to say: Happy New Year!! But, anyway, I can’t believe it’s 2022 already! πŸ˜†

Also, it’s already been six months that I’ve had this blog! I can’t believe that I’ve already been blogging for half a year!

Okay, well here’s the wrap-up:


Any sequels will most likely contain spoilers for the first book(s) in the series.

  1. Girl Online by Zoe Sugg is the first book in the girl online series. It’s about Penny, who has an anonymous blog where she talks about the things going on in her life: school, her family, boys, and the panic attacks she’s beginning to have. For the holidays, her family travels to New York, where she meets Noah. I absolutely loved this book, and I read the series very quickly. I’d rate it 5/5 stars!
  2. Girl Online: On Tour by Zoe Sugg. This is the second book in the series, and it follows more of Penny’s adventures as she is going on tour with Noah, her boyfriend now. But she’s struggling with her life on tour: she’s missing her best friend and her family, Noah seems to always be busy, and most of his bandmates are unwelcoming. I loved this just as much as the first one, so it’s 5/5 stars!
  3. Girl Online: Going Solo by Zoe Sugg is the third and final book in the girl online series. Penny’s life is looking more normal now, but nobody knows where Noah is, after he mysteriously vanished after the band tour. So, she agrees to go to Megan’s school; maybe she can make some more friends. I loved this one too, and I just think it is a great ending to the series. 5/5 stars!
  4. The Story Of My Life by Helen Keller is Helen Keller’s autobiography. I had to read this for my English class, and I actually ended up really enjoying it. It follows Helen Keller through all of her struggles, talking about how she went bling and deaf at nineteen months, and it follows all of her accomplishments afterwards. I think that it was a really inspirational book. 5/5 stars!
  5. The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien. This is the second book in the Lord of the rings series. It follows the members of the fellowship, who are now split apart, and after they have lost Gandalf in the Mines of Moria. I am enjoying the series so far, even if the books are a little slow, and I hope to read both The Return of the King and The Hobbit this year. I rated this book 5/5 stars!
  6. A Cloud of Outrageous Blue by Vesper Stamper. This is a book set in 1348, and it was a very different one than any I’d read before. The historical fiction books I read are usually set in the 1900’s, so this was different, but good. It follows Edyth, who’s has lost her family. She then goes to live in a priory. 5/5 stars!
  7. A Thief Among the Trees by Sabaa Tahir is a companion graphic novel to the Ember in the Ashes series. It’s about Elias and Helene when they were younger, and they are sent on a dangerous mission to steal poison. 5/5 stars!
  8. Messenger by Lois Lowry is the the third book in the giver quartet. It’s about Matty, who now lives in the Village with the blind man. The village is starting to change, with darkness creeping in. When the villagers vote to close down the village to outsiders, Matty knows he must make one last message. 5/5 stars!
  9. Son by Lois Lowry. This is the last book in the Giver quartet. It follows Claire, a birthmother in the community, who has a son, which is taken from her. When she is reassigned, she strives to learn more about the son she had. 5/5 stars!
  10. Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith. This book is about Alice, who gets a lottery ticket for her friend Teddy for his birthday. He wins, and he starts to get too absorbed in the money, and everything. Instead of a windfall, they think this might just make them grow more apart. 4.5/5 stars.
  11. Listen to Your Heart by Kasie West is the final book I read this year. Just like all other Kasie West books, I loved it! It’s about Kate, who doesn’t like talking to people. So when her best friend, Alana, gets her to do the high school’s podcast, she ends up being the host. But she actually finds out that she kind of likes it. 5/5 stars!


In December, I got a good amount of writing done. I got to chapter five in my contemporary novel, and I’m on the sixteenth chapter in the fantasy novel. I’m on chapter fifty-seven in my dystopian novel, too. I’m going to try and make up a good writing schedule, so I can write more effectively.

I’m going to try and finish the first draft of my dystopian novel, and the first draft of the contemporary novel!


The main crochet projects I got done were last-minute Christmas presents, and some ornaments, and Christmas-related decor!


I didn’t really get any running done this month, but I’m going to try to start running again in January! I also got a bike for Christmas, so I’ve been biking a little bit, too!

Other stuff

The main thing I had going on this month was getting ready for Christmas! I’ve also been on Christmas break for two weeks, so I’m actually kind of looking forward to starting again on Monday! My dad also re-did the floor in our living room, so it was kind of chaotic, but it looks really nice now!

I’m not going to do a whole “New Years Resolutions” blog post, but here are a few things I want to accomplish this year:

β™‘ Blogging-related β™‘

  • Get 100 followers
  • Plan and scedual more posts
  • Do a few collabs
  • But, just have fun with it

β™‘ Writing-related β™‘

  • Finish the first draft of my contemporary novel
  • Finish the first draft of my dystopian novel
  • Write at least 1,000 words a day

β™‘ Reading-related β™‘

  • Read at least 60 books
  • Finish the LOTR series

β™‘ Running-related β™‘

  • Enter another race
  • Run at least 200 miles
  • Just have fun with it

β™‘ Life-related β™‘

  • Start waking up earlier
  • Make a better scedual
  • Write in my journal everyday



I really like how this pic turned out! I love the green sweater, and how the sun is on the page! The book is “The Two Towers” by the way!
My sister took this picture of the macarons I made!
Homemade rice crispies are the best!
Peppermint bark!!!!
My dad re-did the floor in our house, and now it looks so nice!
Christmas colored book spines!
Candy cane books!
And, our Christmas tree this year!
Also, this year, my sister and I are going to try and do a display thing on top of our bookshelf each month. This was December’s, and it was just Christmas-colored books!

Again, I can’t believe it’s already 2022! It seems like it was just 2020 a little while ago…

Okay, so I guess that’s all for today’s post! I hope you have a great weekend!!
