Craft Fair and Fall Pictures

Hello again. Today I have some pictures of things to show you.
Firstly, I went to a craft fair last weekend. I got three pairs of earrings and Ali got a doll dress. It looks totally adorable on Rileigh!
But anyway. I did take pictures of everything, as well as some other cute fall stuff.
Halloween earrings! These are so cute and I should wear them a lot this week. That is my hair in case you were wondering.

Do these scream "dragons" to anyone else, or is it just me?

I think these teal ones are my favorites. They go with more than the other two pairs, and I love the color.

Here's Rileigh with her beautiful ringlets! And the dress. Isn't the dress so cute?

heh... I took a lot of these.

Now on to the fall pictures!

Mr. Turtle picked out the CUTEST PUMPKIN EVER!! EEE!

And to finish this post, Amber. She wouldn't get out of my chair.
Until later,

So apparently...

I got a confused comment a few minutes ago and realized that apparently, I never actually explained what NaNoWriMo was. Well then. <-- That is the NaNo site, it has more details and lets you sign up and stuff. I'm just here to tell you the basics.
NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, but we usually shorten it to NaNoWriMo or just NaNo. It takes place in November, every year, and it's just a thing where tons and tons of writers from around the world write novels at the same time.
The NaNo definition of a "novel" is a "lengthy work of fiction." By lengthy they mean 50,000 words long, or longer if you're ambitious.
To be doing NaNo "by the book" you start with a new idea and write what would be published as a novel, counting only words written in November. However, there is no rule against writing poem collections or a recipe book or whatever. That just makes you a rebel, and that is not discouraged. They even get t…

NaNoWriMo 2016

Have you noticed the thing on my sidebar? Maybe? It's probably obvious now that I'm doing NaNoWriMo this November! That gives me about 9 days, less than two weeks, until Halloween, NaNo, and my birthday. Yikes.
My novel is...
Shadowed (Working title, I need to find one that fits a little better. Any suggestions would be appreciated.)

So, synopsis, main characters? Yeah?
Two years ago, Grace Lewis's older sister, Fara, disappeared. There was no trail, no struggle, and no victory to the searches. Now, after a series of strange dreams, Grace sets out alone to find her sister.  Her search can only go so far, and what Grace needs most is a friend. When an accident turns the tables and sends Grace headfirst into an unfamiliar land, who really needs to be found? Interesting? I hope so. I may post some of it during NaNo, but I will probably not post the whole thing. This is a novel that I may try to publish or post on a different site. I will work that out after November.
Now: Mai…

Everything in my sketchbook

I'm wearing jeans today for the first time in six months. I can't believe it's so cold already! Ahhh! NaNo/my birthday is only three weeks away!
So today I'm going to be showing you all the drawings in my sketchbook that I filled this past week. Well, not really everything. Out of a fifty page sketchbook, this is about half of it. Some of it was doodles that I don't need to show, other parts you have already seen. I tried to keep it all new stuff, but I can't remember everything. Hold on tight, because this is going to be a long post.
To start us off, we have this lovely drawing of Elsa! I drew this Christmas morning when I got the sketchbook, so it was the very first thing I drew in it.

Item four in my sketchbook is this picture of an eyeless ballerina. I'm not sure why exactly she has no eyes, or if they're closed or what. Drawing the hand on this was SO HARD. Hands in general are hard to draw.

The Element Guardians! This was the second design of thei…

Random Pictures

Today I have some random photography to share. It doesn't follow a particular theme.
The math problem is unimportant, as well as the fact that 4500 does not equal 120. Really I'm just proud of my handwriting.

I'm not sure where I took these pictures, but I uploaded them for something.

I took this picture last night. This is the outside wall of my ballet studio, right by the door. I like this style and I think I'm going to try the same subject in daylight. 
That's all the pictures, but I'm working on another post and some drawings. I filled one of my sketchbooks, so I think I'm going to share all the art in it.


I just have this piece of art. And I'm really proud of it because I have never drawn a sunset before. That's all.
Here it is.

That's everything.
