(Do not fret if you don't make it through all this. I wrote a lot!)
Grow your blog!! It sounds wonderful. I follow many people, but I don't have too many following me in return. I honestly feel like I am always talking to myself! As long as I am entertaining someone I suppose. :P
Well, this is something I didn't officially do for my blog, so in some ways that is a relief. I wouldn't want to repeat myself-- boring! My name is Petra (Peh-trah NOT pee-trah), and I am a proud Aries (and a monkey!) That makes me stubborn and hardheaded, easily distracted by new projects, overly critical of myself, optimistic, and a bit of a chatterbox! (Though not in person. I'm incredibly shy.) There is of course much more to me, but I believe those will be the most prominent aspects about myself you will notice.
I love reading, though I do not read often enough these days; a video game junkie; reality show stalker; and the most important thing-- the creation of this blog-- MY CROSS STITCHES. Though I am still pretty fresh with this hobby, I adore stitching to pieces. It makes me relaxed and happy, and I think I may even be focusing a little better. (Just a tad.) I mainly cross stitch video game related items, since there are so many free patterns available, but don't let that chase away any non-gamers! Every piece is beautiful, whether or not you know what it's about, no?
I spend the other half of my time when not stitching, writing. I do hope to be some kind of published author one day, and I really do not hesitate to think of myself as the next Twilight saga! (NOT meaning vampire novels; just the amount of adoration and publicity it received.) Dreaming never hurt anyone, right? If it weren't for my dreams, I wouldn't be half the person I am today.
My home is full of ANIMALS. I adore them all to bits, and they make the house so lively. When I go over to others' places that don't have any pets, it's so quiet and still and... Lifeless. It's horrible! I like the noise, and the activity, and their endless amounts of love and happiness really fuel me! I have fallen in love with rabbits, ever since my first boy, Peter! Currently there is my little chocolate dwarf Ciel, and whom I believe is a Netherland, Elizabeth (Beth for short)! She is such a pig, my first female, and makes me regret not picking out a boy. LOL! Ciel is so behaved, well mannered, and clean, while she is a complete rebel. Though I don't love her any less.
Puss Puss (or Cira, the name no one ever uses) is my cat! He's a redhead, which makes him really feisty! When he was a kitten, all he did was attack people's ankles! Two years later, and he hasn't quite calmed down yet. There is also Sebastian and Zorro, the family cats. Then there is my mom's hamster, Teddy, whom only uses me for food, and our 3 budgies, Mercury (female), Comet (female), and Pisces (male)!
They're supposed to be the family's pets as well, but as most animals will do, THEY choose who they love. Comet is a chatterbox and loves everyone; Pisces appears to only love Mercury; and Mercury loves me. She's the eldest, being about probably 8-10 years old. She sure doesn't look it though!
Look at me-- I lived up to the chatterbox trait! I'll end my rant now, and if you read all the way through, well then, thank you very much. I appreciate that you took the time. I hope this "Grow Your Blog" event turns out well, so till next time!
