The Grand Finale

Hello everyone!

So, at this very moment, I am working on the epilogue to my story Scarred Hearts. I am really happy that I am finishing it, but I am also sad. This was such a great story to write, and I loved reading the comments my readers were giving. Scarred Hearts is entered in the #Wattys2015, so I am looking forward to that. This will be the second time that I have entered. The last time was in 2013, and my story was a finalist! \o/ That is, to me, quite an accomplishment. Considering all the other stories that were entered. 

I am not going to make this a long post, I just wanted to give you guys an update. I hope you all have a goodnight/day/afternoon, wherever you are in the world. God bless, and I will see you all next time!

BlogLovin', BookTubers, Giveaways . . . Fun!

So, in case the title of this post wasn't obvious. I now have an official obsession with giveaways, blogs, and booktubers! All that jazz. I am waiting for PointlessBlog on YouTube to announce the 3 winners of the vlogging cameras(and SD memory cards)! If I were to win one, I will be set for Haddie'sHaven. I won't need to borrow my sister's camera anymore. Because when she is using it, I can't do my thing.

There is a possibility that I will be participating in some blog-book-cover reveals, or something like that. Basically, I will be helping to reveal a new book's cover, of course that is if they accept my submission. The deadline was not posted yet so. 

(ALSO, I wrote half of this post near midnight, yesterday. So, if some of that stuff above did not make sense, I apologize. I was half asleep.)

Afternoon people! I am just here with one of my younger sisters, listening to Callabro's Stars Special Edition album. xD this is just a symphony of umph! I love their voices! This album was so worth getting! I love listening to them sing. I watched their audition with my family, and it was just *sighs* the feels! seriously, it is just so awesome. Go and get yourself a copy of their album. You will love it!

Like I mentioned above, I wrote the first portion of this post last night, after 11pm. I have actually gone through it and fixed anything that looked out of context. But overall, it is word for word what I typed last night. 

Anyhow, I was going to try and film a video today, but I can't bring myself to do it. I am so nervous! \o/ I have watched so many videos for beginners yesterday, and I don't have more than half of the means to get this going. One of the pros is that I am over 21, I know how to conduct myself via INTERNET. That is the least of my worries. I just need to give myself the Brave Heart speech, at least ten more times, but then maybe I will be ready for my close up. Also, I keep getting called to watch the little brother! Dx You would not believe how many times I have gotten up while preparing this post. 

That is all for now. I have guests, and I need to see about uploading a video. God bless, and ciao!

Giveaway Entries . . .

I need a new hobby! This past month, every morning, I use my extra, free, entries to see if I can win a giveaway. I don't think it is a good thing, but if you guys saw these giveaways, you would understand. And also! I rarely win anything. Winning a Kindle version of The Girl On The Train (Paula Hawkins) was the first giveaway I ever won. Which is an amazing book, you guys should go grab a copy. I mean, I am only just finishing chapter 2, but it is really good. 

Anyways, guys, I have not been writing much. Here is why. 

Y'all know that that my dog had her puppies on Father's Day, and I have, basically, been keeping a very sharp eye on them to make sure Bella does not neglect them. Being a new mother, it was always a possibility that Bella would neglect them, but she has been such a good mother to the pups and whenever they need to nurse, there she is with them! I do have to help her out a bit, because sometimes she sits on them. Not hard, and not for longer than a few seconds. The smallest puppy, Teddy, I though would have trouble getting along, but he is doing so well. He is not a runt, and he has grown to be nearly the size as his brother Nico (which was the biggest puppy born in the litter). So, yeah, I am always in the garage with them.

Along with that, I believe I have mentioned before, that I have a commitment to my sister to let her use my laptop from 2pm-5:30pm, Monday-Saturday. So that puts me at a slight disadvantage. And when I am on my laptop, I easily forget why I got on, and what I was planning to do. Unless I have a little note on my screen, I will never remember what I was planning to do until after I let my sister on my laptop. :3

And, of course, life with a VERY LARGE family can be occupational. Not in a hazardous way, but you are always occupied. My parents are always calling me to help with something. I am the "go-to" girl. Every time someone needs something done, I am the one they call. Because everyone else either does either refuses to do it, or they are busy. 

Well, that is all for now. May God bless you, and I will see you next time!! :D

Exhaustion Has Commenced


click the title to see video

Hiya peeps! Hey every-buggy!

Well, I am making quite a big list of books on my Kindle app, and I thought I would post the link to my list for you guys to see - GoodReads

Puppies are all alive and well, they made it through their first night. :D

I need a mobile device!! I can't read my Kindle books if I don't have one. I have tried in many ways to get one, but I am failing miserably. 

Well, I am going to keep this post short. I have a lot to do today. Ciao!

Happy Father's Day! = PUPPIES!!!!

Yes! the pups were born this morning and the th pup came just a little while ago
(at the time I wrote this post, because I waited for the video to upload before posting, and an 8th puppy was born after I had everything ready to post!!!! I had already started to upload to Youtube, which took all day.)  
The puppies are completely black. Except there are three that have been born with a tan head (and white toes! xD), and one of those looks just like his mama! He definitely inherited the German Shepherd looks from Bella. Look at the video below, enjoy!

Puppy Delivery?

Bella has not left her box all day. And just a short while ago she started to growl at Spike and Bruno for wanting to drink out of the water dish I was giving her. So, I think it's started! \o/ The long awaited day is finally beginning, erm. . . . The night is beginning. I am planning to try and stay up with my brother (who is actually Bella closer owner, because she was given to him as a present). I have been taking little notes, and I have a camera to record the action, if it happens tonight. That will possibly be my next video on my channel (Haddie's Haven), so keep an eye out for that, if it happens tonight. 

Also, everyone in my house is eating mangoes and coconuts at the moment. Because, we just got a bunch of both, so yeah. Tropical dinner tonight! Not really, because I did not eat dinner tonight. I usually have a snack before and after dinner. Well, that is all for now (took me 40 mins. to write this because I keep getting up and all that. So, God bless you. I will update again soon. Ciao!

Puppy Kicks! (3rd post attempt)

Okay, this is LITERALLY the third time that I am trying to post this. 3rd time is the charm.

My dog Bella is due to have her puppies this week (give or take) and so they have finally started to move around! Bella was sitting almost on top of my foot the other day, and they were just kicking my foot so much! I cannot wait for them to arrive. I am going to try and not get attached to them, but I am SUPER EXCITED! I have done kittens with my sisters cat, but puppies/dogs are my kind of pet.

Well, that is all for now. I just wanted to GET THIS OUT THERE. My laptop turned off the first time, and the second time it froze and  my blog page shut down on me. So yeah. God bless and I hope you are having a good day/night. Ciao!

Haddie's Haven - Introduction To Me

Filming Today?

So my dad is planning to take a bunch of the family on a hike right after lunch, which is in a little while. Would this be the opportunity I was looking for? Possibly. I am just still stuck on what I should do for my first video, and I am still quite nervous to just talk out loud about random crap stuff in my haven. I will probably just be introducing myself and maybe talk about some things I am doing, or share my top favorites, I don't know. 

Of course, this is all assuming I am not needed to watch the little brother, which I most likely am. Maybe he can "be in the video". . . IDK, still nervously freaking out.

Haddie'sHaven - First Video Ideas

I have been thinking, if I am ever going to get the Haddie'sHaven Channel going, I am gonna need to at least have some ideas ready. So I thought I would just bounce a few ideas at you, and see which one strikes best. Which means, if anyone reads this post, please comment your thoughts. I would appreciate it.

Idea #1 - An introduction to Haddie's Haven, where I tell a little bit about me, what I like to do, etc.

Idea #2 - An Unboxing? I have entered quite a few giveaways, and they all involve me opening a box. There are no results for the one(s) I am keeping my eye on, not yet, so I hope to see them soon. Which brings me to my next idea . . .

Idea #3 - A giveaway, which would probably help get viewers, but I don't want people to feel that they have to watch my channel because they are gonna get something. I want people to watch because they want to. 

Idea #4 - Puppies Birth! Well, that would be a long and tiring video. I do not have a camera, but that would be an interesting way to start off Haddie'sHaven.

So those are my four ideas. I do not feel so bad that I do not have a fancy video editor. Reason: charlieissocoolike used WMM when he first started out, so . . . I'm a go for it. Also, he is an introvert just like me. And his video quality was not the best either. *British Accent* Charlie, your inspo for me. Please do not change who you :)

*normal voice* There is still the slight setback of finding a quiet place to film myself talking to absolutely nobody :3 I'll work it out. Sundays are the days I am most active, so my thought process will work better tomorrow . . . I think. . . :p I am such a dork, and I am happy to be extraordinarily optimistic about it. 

So, yeah, that is all for now. Thank you, everyone, who have taken a moment of their day to read this post. I basically was rambling, but thank you. :) God bless you all ♥

Wattpad Magazines You Should Check Out

So, as most of you already know, I am in a few magazines on Wattpad.com, and I thought I would share them with you guys. I mean, you should totally check them out. It's free, and you do not need to make an account to read. 

The first magazine is called BelleMagazine - In this magazine, I write the Celebrity Spills column, which is known as Harper's Happenings. I also make the cover(s) for the issues, when the other designer does not get to it, or if they say I can do it.


Another magazine I am with is ChristianReaderMagazine - This is a Christian magazine, and it only has one issue out at the present moment, but we are working on the next issue.

MonochromeMagazine - We are just getting started with this magazine, working out final details and such. I am the cover designer, as well as Art Director/Executive. Yes, I am one of the head-honchos in this one. I am basically in charge of all the graphics designers that participate in this magazine.

And last, but not least, #HashtagMagazine - I created this magazine myself to gain a bit more experience as an editor, and I thought it would be fun. 

On another note, I won my first giveaway today! \o/ Yes, it was a giveaway from one of my fave. authors (Anne-Lae Vasquez) and I won a free copy of the Kindle version of The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins. I am so happy about that, because I was actually looking at the book the other day in the store, and I almost bought it, but I was not sure because I did not have any $$ with me, which stinks. But anyways, that was awesome. I cannot wait to start reading it. I hope to get some sort of device that will allow me to read all my Kindle books (331 books as of The Girl On The Train) and I forget they are there. So, yeah, I need to look for either a Kindle reader or maybe even an iPod Touch. Maybe then I can get my YouTube channel going. Because I think it is going to be revolving around what I do in my haven, which would include all the books I am reading.

Well, that is all for now. Thank you for stopping by, and may God bless you. ♥

New Updates

Good morning! Well, for this post I just wanted to let you guys know what is going on. 

As you know, I recently create a self-website, with a bunch of fun stuff and info about my stories, and my new youtube channel (Haddie'sHaven). I have several new chapters coming for some of my stories. The chapter that you can expect to be up ASAP will be chapter 18 of Scarred Hearts. I love where this story is going and I am loving writing it. I was planning to have this chapter ready over the weekend, but I was so busy, I did not have much time to work on it. 

I a planning my first video for Haddie'sHaven, but I am so nervous that I don't know if I will get around to it. Mainly because I was planning to do a giveaway, but of course I do not have the means to do a giveaway, so I am ditching that idea for now. I don't have a camera either, just the one on my laptop, so I don't know how good it would come out. AND I don't have a place to go to film the video, without being disturbed by everyone in my house. 

My lovely dog, Bella, is going to be giving birth to her puppies within the next week or so, and I am SO EXCITED! I have been getting things ready for her to whelp; I have a big box for her, and she is already used to going in it to lie down and stuff. Because Bella is a German Shepherd/Pit-bull mix, she could have a minimum of five pups in the litter. So there is a 50/50% chance that she could have more. Either way, I have a home ready for them to go to when they are weaned, and I am studying up. I will be prepped for anything! 

Well, that is all for now. I hope you all have a splendid day. May God bless you and protect you. :) ♥

So, the link above is my new website, which I have been working on since Friday. I am so happy with it, and I love how it came out. 

I also want to take the time to thank all the people who follow this blog. I truly appreciate it. I am going to try and make an effort to post most consistently, and perhaps more weekly or daily, IDK. I will work it out :)
