Poll Results

Posted on

Now that I have come to the end of my ’31 day gratitude experiment’, it’s freed up a little thinking time in my over-active brain. So from the POLL I put up a few posts back (which wasn’t as successful as I had hoped) I decided to work on the two chosen categories ‘poetry’ and ‘personal ramblings’. I’m going to try to base my poetry on the art of ‘Consuelo Parra’ as I have found her work quite inspirational. The idea popped into my head during a quiet moment at work (I don’t get many of those), and once I have an idea I tend to stick with it.

As for personal ramblings, this will be a challenge in itself as I find it very difficult to open up and I didn’t realise this until fairly recently. On a different blogging note, I’ve finally passed 2000 views on sheryl’s bloggy blog, received over 200 likes and now also have over 50 followers. This may not seem like a big deal to most bloggers but it is to me.

I’ve said it before and I say it again ‘Thank you’! I appreciate any kind of acknowledgement, it really does mean a lot to me. Just knowing that my little blog is being noticed makes me happy. It’s still not too late to vote on my poll, I would love your opinion.

My 2012 Highlights

Posted on

2012 has been yet another great year for me overall and I’m extremely grateful for that. I have had great fun with many good friends along the way. I have managed to do a little travelling with Spain and Barcelona being my main holiday this year which included lots of great excursions. Disneyland Paris was somewhere I’ve always wanted to go and it certainly made me feel like a kid again… everyone needs a little magic in their lives. My long weekend to Devon was a welcomed break from the norm and left me feeling refreshed.

I attended three fantastic conventions with this year being my first experience of conventions too. Bitten 3 weekend, the Entertainment Media show and the London Film and Comic con all had some brilliant guests. Other highlights included seeing Michael McIntyre at the o2, The Harry Potter studio tour and the amazing annual West End Live which I will no doubt be at again next year.

Obviously my brother’s wedding has to be one of the biggest highlights of this year. It was a lovely occasion and one that I will remember for a long time to come. Meeting the coolest couple on YouTube Charles and Ali Trippy at the Contiki meetup in London with my niece was exciting and I hope to meet more of the YouTubers that I watch next year. Seeing one of my favourite bands Evanescence was long-awaited and I’m pleased to say that I have actually finally seen them live.

I tried my hand at poetry and really enjoyed it so I plan to submit more poetry into any online magazines that will accept them and see where I get. I completely failed on my other blogs for reviews and art but I’ve decided to just add everything I do to this blog in the future. Oh, and that book I bought back in January is still unfinished… what am I like!

New Blog

Posted on

So as you know I’ve been working on a bit of poetry recently and I have now made a new blog to accommodate my creative works. My first poem is called ‘The Gathering’ and it can be found here http://sherylscreativecuriosities.wordpress.com/

I would appreciate any feedback and constructive criticism. As its my first displayed poem, I’d like to know if it’s any good but as I said in a previous post it won’t be to everyone’s taste.

I will also begin to display art work once I have some completed pieces. I still need to go shopping for some new materials and equipment so I don’t know how long this could take but I’ll keep you posted. I’m excited by the fact that I can share my creative side with everyone in Blogsville, I just hope people like it.

It’s not very often I get a weekend to myself and since this was the case I managed to do a lot of thinking. I seemed to have abandoned my creative side after the last few hectic years of my life and seeing as things are not slowing down at all I might as well try to fit it in somewhere. It’s always something I have enjoyed doing since I was a small child. I was never any good at maths or anything technical at school… my brain just didn’t work that way; but give me a piece of paper and I would spend hours perfecting a sketch. I can’t sit back and watch my skills go to waste so once I have the materials I am going to begin painting again. I like to work with acrylic on canvas using bold colours in an alternative fashion.

Something else I haven’t tried my hand at since I was… a teenager (crikey! I didn’t think it was that long) is writing poetry and I started this yesterday. One I finished and another is on its way to completion. Again, this isn’t a style that some people would find appealing… I’m very much into my horror/fiction. I have already submitted my completed poem into an e-zine in hope that it will be published there but as its my first poem in such a long time I’m not sure whether it will be any good or not so fingers crossed.

I thought that it may be a good idea to create a separate blog for all things arty farty. But I shall update you about that nearer the time. Anyway I’m off to try and finish this poem which has presented me with writer’s block… toodle-pip!
