I hope the new year is bringing you the best of things. I haven’t done an update post in forever and 2017 seemed like the best place to start.
I’ve been doing a spot of creating and baking. With the holidays gone, I thought I’d remember some of the things I’ve done and how I spent the precious days of freedom. I’d also like to see how my 2017 resolutions are going, a few days into the new year.
First off, I’d like to talk about the incredibly cute mini notebooks I made. When I say mini, I MEAN MINI! These were so tiny and adorable, that there was only space for the squishiest handwriting in the world or very small notes. I absolutely love my notebooks which I made in no time, using this tutorial and printable.
Next, up, I got out my chef hat out (not really), searched up a good recipe, and voila! I was back into the baking groove. The recipe was slightly confusing and I made my own adjustments to the measurements to create less (I know!) yummy biscuits! They were quite big biscuits (oops) but I downed 3 without a second thought and a splash of milk! Here’s how the big giants looked:
Just before the holidays had slipped away, I visited some shops! Of course, there were many books I had my eyes on, but I chose to pick up an Anthony Horowitz book collection filled with the Diamond Brother series and other juicy books. I’ve already read 2 books for the collection. Here’s how the box set looks!
Also, the new episode of BBC Sherlock? WHO WATCHED IT? GAH, it was SO GOOD!
The rest of the holidays were just relaxing, reading, and eating! Though 2 days back into school, I’m not getting as much time to do those things, but hey, it’s SCHOOL?! Of course, you’re going to get busy! Homework have already started to pile up… *sigh*
BUT, I’d like to say thank you to all the amazing bloggers out there.
Shania made a WHOLE post about me(link), thanking me, talking about how ‘great’ I am!? LIKE WHAT? I feel on top of the world right now.
ALSO, i got nominated for the Best looking blog @ 2016 Blogger AWARDS! HEY, sorry? Me, best-looking blog! You guys are kidding me… ANYWAYS, thanks to anybody who nominated me.
I also got nominated/tagged for so many things which I really hope I can get around to this 2017. Would You Rather Book Tag, 2016-2017 tag and many others. I promise I will do them!
I’ve also been thinking about improving my blog. I know a lot of you have given me the best compliments ever that make me smile, but there is always room for improvement. I’m nearly at 500, but I’m aiming for 1k followers this year and I hope this survey can help. Anyways, my blog better be awesome this 2017 and to make sure of that, I’d love if you just took this quick survey and fill it in. PLEASE be honest. Like, if my blog is rubbish for some reason, then tell me. Don’t think you are going to offend me. Here’s what happens to me when I fill in a survey
Blogger: PLEASE be honest with me in the survey. I won’t get offended!
Me: Yeah, sure! I will be so truthful
Blogger: Here’s the link
Me: Boring Stuff. Name, email, gender
Survey: What do you think of my blog content?
Me *thinking*: Some of the content is awesome but I think she could post more discussion posts.
Me: I can’t write that down! That is SO negative! And she/he knows my name, he/she’ll probably hate me forever and think I criticise too much and…
Blogger’s voice echoes: Please be honest with me *dramatic music*
Me: I…I…I LOVE ALL YOUR POSTS!!!!!!!!
Blogger: YAY, great feedback, but I can’t do anything to improve!
Me: Guilty, but at least their happy?
So, please, don’t be ME and be honest when filling it out! I don’t mean spam me with hate but constructive criticism is always appreciated!

Some Other Thoughts
Another thing I’d like to ask you about is well, I’m thinking of starting a Writing Series consisting of contests, prompts, short stories etc… I want it to be called Word Wars but I want to know if you are interested? Let me know below in the comments.
I still need to create my 365 Jar (now 368 or something) so I’m a little behind but I will start.
And that’s pretty much all. I didn’t do a December Wrap since it was the end of the year so I guess this was a little replacement!
How were your holidays? What did you do over the break? Already failing your resolutions? How is 2017 going so far? What books have you read and what have you done? Tell me about 2017!
