Tuesday 30th December, 2014

My brand spanking new Youtube channel is ready to rock 'n' roll !!
I'm not sure if it 'exists' when you search for it yet, as I am yet to upload any vids yet, but for those interested my channel's name is TotalleeTelly!
Cute eh ?!
The first video will be uploaded on the first of January and it will be abysmal! Yay positive energy! Hopefully I will get the hang of things (aka. the editing software) and will hopefully make some content of use !
Nothing I post will be as fan-tas-ma-gorical as that of Bananajamana Oh my goodness this girl's work, be it painting, cake decorating, anything-creative, flaws me every freaking time she posts a new vid !
Check out her latest piece !


Absolutely Brilliant.

Counting Down!
Monday 29th December, 2014

3 and a bit days to go guys!!!!
In extra-exciting news...I finished a new portrait last night ! High fives all round sexy people!
I won't say too much to spoil the surprise, but it features someone who 6 year old me thought was THE BOMB! ( and judging by my less than natural hair colour, she clearly had some influence in that department too!)
Now to don some appropriate threads and do the famous pose-on-the-floor-next-to-the-finished-article thang
I also better get cracking on deciding on a Youtube channel name !!
Then it is on to uploading some content !!

Mucho exciting guys!!!!

I hope everyone had/is having a wonderful chrissy day! I myself don't ever want to see sugar, or salt, EVER. AGAIN!!!!!
I am still hearing unnerving sound effects from my stomach....
Probably will do till new year....

Man that is just so wrong....
But on the other hand, so right! If there are any death eaters out there struggling in the christmas gift department... the amazing ASHLEY has created a Voldemort panel that fits right with the other Hogwarts Bunch panels and guess what....
Check the evil bugger out!!

Many thanks for the head's up Ashley
If you would like to get your hook into the Dark Lord, log in to Ravelry (seriously, if you are not on there, what are you doing?! Get on there man!! Spit Spot!!) and check out the free pattern right hereeeeeeee !!

A reprieve!!
Wednesday 17th December, 2014

Trust me I haven't!!! I have been scared witless that I wouldn't make the deadline for entries on the 19th of December, but guess what, this is one of those rare occasions where being a complete and utter DUNDERBRAIN works in one's favour !!
I have been suffering from a *cough* 'Levator Scapular Spasm' since Friday. I may or may not have heard "LeviOsa scapular spasm"..I shall let you ponder that one...
Anywho, it has left me with a neck/shoulder/back that is throbbing, sore and stiff as a board. Fun fun fun !!
So naturally panic set in as I remembered with dread that my rainbow lorikeet had to be done and dusted by the 19th December!!! AGGHH!!
Turns out I needn't of gotten my knickers in a twist because i'm a total twit brain . The APPLICATION form has to be in by the 19th December! The ACTUAL PIECE doesn't have to be anywhere near them till the day before the show! End of February!!!
Excuse me while I...

THANK FRIG for mistaking deadlines!!!
The rush of panic I felt beforehand did lead me to get my feathered friend up to 70%! Before my shoulder completely gave way though! Yay silver linings!

Happy, but still a bit bummed that the poor bugger STILL can't see anything!!! Hopefully I can give him an eyeball next update

In website news, my folks are now moving back into their place which means I should get access to their fast PC and their reliable internet connection as early as THIS WEEKEND!!!

BURSTING to show it off!!!

Just before signing off....

Sydney Siege
Monday 15th December, 2014

My thoughts and prayers are with the hostages of the cafe siege in Sydney. My heart goes out to you at this unbelieveably surreal time. I pray this ends peacefully and you all remain safe and well
My heart also goes out the the hundreds of police and emergency service men and women on scene. Words cannot describe how grateful we are to you and for your service

I hereby declare..oh nevermind!
Wednesday 10th December, 2014

Three weeks ago I got a lovely letter from the lovely folks at the Supreme Court!
First reaction = OMG i'm being SUED?!?!...
Reaction upon opening the letter = Jury duty?! *nerd snort* "Ah sweet!".
Yes. I was pretty excited at the prospect of jury duty. It is in fact HIP TO BE THAT PATHETICALLY SQUARE PEOPLE!! I order you to take a 5min time out to go and listen to Huey L. & The News if you doubt me!!
I'll wait.....
.... told you
Anywho, after being summoned, the trial was put off, then back on, then off, on, off, on, off I was starting to develop a tick..
Finally I was told that my services were definitely not required! Major bummer! I've only ever been in a court room once and that was on a school excursion when I was about 10-ish (again, it's hip to be square people. Press repeat on Huey ). So I was kinda getting amped up about attending a real court room situation!
Ahh well, maybe next year!
In OMG-about-time news,

I know!! I know!! I'm a gazillion years behind the times on these things, but I have finally joined! Please feel free to add me (or whatever the term is..I have no friggin idea what any of it means yet) by clicking on the banner there
Now on to the bubbly-popping crochet news!!!

My word he's a surly little bastard isn't he?!?
The junior dark lord marks the final panel of the truly magical one known as LouAnne's Hogwarts Bunch Blanket!!! !!
Thank you for taking us on your journey matie!!! Can't WAIT to see them all stitched up and looking monumentally AMAZING !!!
Whoa, whoa, WHOA!!! You didn't think that was all now did you?!?
Crochet Queen Liz has sent in a snapshot of her FIRST ATTEMPT AT HER OWN PATTERN!!

Now I owe you an apology here Liz. As previously stated, I am behind the times when it comes to pretty much anything that has come out in the last 5-10 years, so I have no idea who this lady is, who her character is, or anything about the show she is on...
However, EVERY OTHER HUMAN ON THE PLANET will know that this is of course Alanna Masterson, who plays 'Tara' on the hit show 'The Walking Dead'!
For a first attempt this BLOWS MY BRAIN!!! Seriously, my first attempt at a pattern was complete and utter giraffe crap. Bobbly bits everywhere, tails hanging out all over the place! I used a weird shitty brown and that ended up making me wanna puke every time I looked at it (TMI Lee ), in short, it was a freaking mess!
A whole bunch of hats off to you Liz, because she looks fantastic!!!
So many talented people...I can't even...

Man I don't know what the hell they've put in the water lately but I am reading like nobodys business lately!! I do believe I qualify for bookworm staus!
November saw me plough through a total of 5 BOOKS! Which felt fantastic! So this month i'm aiming for six!
Little amibitous considering this month is hectic as bat crap (that makes no sense) but what is life without goals people ?!?
Today I managed to score 3 of the books i'm hoping to divulge this month and i'm so stoked because they are three that I have been meaning to read for yonkies!!

I think i'm going to have to dive in to 'Jane Eyre' first because I have never had so many people say "you haven't read Jane Eyre?! OH MY GOD WHAT THE HELL LEE!! WHAT THE HELL?!?!" to me in my life.
So clearly I am meant to enjoy this book! I hope so because now i'm all hyped up about it
For those fellow readers out there I am also on Goodreads ! Please feel free to add me (by clicking the banner below) because i'm nosy and would love to see what you are reading and then prolly add it to my ever-growing TBR (to-be-read) list!

In frig-me-people-are-awesome news, LouAnne, the FANTASTICAL LouAnne has been at it again

I wish I had your speed man!!! Bloody terrific work LouAnne you champion you

Can't wait to see who is on the way next !!
