Blogger Recognition Award!

Blogger Recognition Award!

So todays post was going to be behind the scenes of my recent photoshoot but then I found a comment in my inbox telling me that I had been nominated for the Blogger Recognititon Award!

blogger-recognition-award-logo-2017

The rules that coincide with this award:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  2. Make a post about the award – I mean…. Who wouldnt???
  3. Give a brief recap of how your blog began
  4. Give two pieces of advice for new bloggers
  5. Select 15 other bloggers you wish to give the award to
  6. Comment on each blog, letting them know of their nomination and providing a link to the post.

I was nominated by the lovely filliefanatic at TinyHorseTalk.wordpress.com. Thankyou so much fillie!

If you like miniatures and model horses you should so go check her blog out. She also does a lot of crochet 🙂

StableStoreys started about two years ago when I realised that I was spending too much time playing virtual horse games instead of using the internet to let my creativity and love of horses big and mini be known to the world.

I started out with mostly model horses and now and then some real horses but now I kind of add little bits of other craft and life stuff in there.

StableStoreys has led me to make quite a few internet friends and also to get into YouTube.

Now for some advice: (Warning: My advise may be a bit crap)

  1. It’s a good idea to really try to make your blog or website name relate to your content. If you are blogging about craft don’t name your blog something like ”Fishnets and camping” Sorry bad example 🙂
  2. Try to use any social media you use to your advantage. Post links to your blog and put up sneak peeks.

I might not actually be following fifteen blogs but lets see:

 

cedarwoodstables at CWS Stables & Studio

Nichelle at Desktop Stables

Tricia at TriciaBookerPhotography

Karen at Draw and Shoot

Leah at shoestringstable

Roxanne at the Magical Canopy

Clock Work Dragons at Clockwork Dragon Designs

Inky at InkyOcean

Scroll Vault at ScrollVault

Scroll Quest at ScrollQuests

Lorrie at The Eff Stop

Rebekah at HorsFeathersBlog

Any hoo…

I can’t express how pleased I am to have received two blogging awards for this blog. I never thought I’d get noticed that much XD

Seeya!

Two Year Anniversary

\(○^ω^○)/

Soooooo….

Yesterday I managed miss a notification stating that it was StableStoreys two year anniversary.

I didn’t get an overveiw this year which is sad 😦 and I’m not doing a big ‘birthday post’ (mainly cause I feel like I only just did that :/) 

So I’m just gonna say that I have some big plans coming up for this blog. And that it is possible that I may branch out a bit.  Or I might just make another blog :3

Anyways….

You lucky people! Two posts in two days running!  XD

Seeya!

Colouring Crazy

Hello!

Not a horse related post today… thought I’d add some difference =)

So I LOVE colouring and throughout my childhood I’ve had millions of colouring books. Recently I have gone a bit colouring crazy. I discovered a colouring magazine for adults called Simply Colour. I love the pictures and patterns in it and will sit for hours thinking up colour schemes.

Sadly I only managed to get three copies before they decided to discontinue it 😦

Also my mum bought me the Harry Potter colouring book by studio press. It was meant to be my birthday present but she gave to me early. Sqweeee!!!!

And I also bought myself some new colouring pencils. Faber-Castell Special Edition for £14.99. It has 60 different colours and includes Pastel, Metallic and Neon colours. Soooo good!!!!!

Changes

I am thinking of ‘redecorating’ the blog.

I’m actually thinking of looking into buying my own domain for it. No promises! It’s just something I’ve wanted to do for a while now.

I don’t quite know what I want to make it look like or how I’ll go about doing it but you may see some changes over the next few weeks.

I am also nearing 100 posts!!!!!!!!!! I think I might try to save some major change of how this place looks for when I do eventually reach 100.

If you have any ideas of what I could change round here please do tell me, I’m open to suggestions.

Also I am looking for a chance to possibly collaborate with another blogger. So if there is anyone up for it… hint hint 🙂

Anywayssss…

Sorry for the slightly boring, short, unimaginative post. I’ve got a lot on my mind ATM.

A Fresh Start

So. It’s 2017, Christmas is over and it’s time to start again.

Last year was… chaotic. So many things happened both good and bad.  And it went by in a flash.

I really hope that 2017 goes slower. Last year I felt like my life was slipping away and I couldn’t catch it.

I have quite a lot happening in the first few months of this year. It’s Hull 2017 festival, I have several workshops to attend which are part of Network Narratives which is a that I have been a part of for almost two years now.

Also in May I have two GCSEs; Art and Biology. So I’m pretty nervous about that…

I don’t normally make new years resolutions But this year I have quite a few.

  1. Be The Best Version Of You (or rather me) baisically love myself a bit more and try to become more confidant.
  2. Be far more organised and keep both my rooms tidy
  3. Really get my blog out there
  4. Obtain some more dolls
  5. Pass my GCSEs 😀

I don’t know if I’m going to keep to them very well XD

I’m so thankful to everyone who has followed my blog, who likes a post and everyone who takes the time to write a comment. Two years is a long time and I’m slightly shocked at myself for sticking at this.

What are you resolutions, if you have any, and how did you feel about 2016?

Aswell as all that, I have devised a new schedule for the blog. I now post every saturday at 6 PM. Unless I have nothing to post about.

I also now have a Pinterest account wich is tied to this blog so go check that out, the link is below ⇓

Pinterest!

Soooooo, A lot is happening for me. Anyways, seeyall next week!

Happy New Year!
