Why did I start my blog? Well, a few of my friends and classmates were blogging and I thought it would fun to start too. I also wanted to share my art and thoughts with the whole wide world. Fun fact: I started my small business “quaint & darling” in 2013 and I sell handmade bracelets, felt keychains, ornaments, and lettering envelopes. Etsy shop may be coming soon…who knows?

I was a teensy tiny bit confused about the rules and questions, so I answered all the ones Syd did plus the ones she gave me.

  • if you could be any book character, who would you be?
    • Not fair, perhaps Jo March from Little Women or Kendra Sorenson from Fablehaven by Brandon Mull. Anyone know Fablehaven??? I love the books (check out my post)!

    • Harry Potter! I’m not sure what house I’m in though. *in a dignified and highy and mighty voice* Percy Jackson messes up the true Greek and Roman mythology .
  • what is your fondest memory?
    • That’s hard. . .maybe hiking on the Shirley Lake Trail at Northstar Resort in Lake Tahoe. The lake turned out to be a mucky pond and we ended up hiking all the way to the top and we got a free tram ride down. Such fun (and frustration)!
