Tea Blog: The Antrim Garden Show

My little blog has taken a decidedly green tinge this month! As a follow up to my terrarium DIY, I went to the first Antrim Garden Show a few weekends ago now and it was very fun event however in typical Irish fashion the Sunday was also a total wash out – rain rain and more rain. But rain has never stopped me from enjoying something – especially when you are walking through a marquee surrounded by beautiful floral displays and quirky little shops and food stalls.

  
I had planned on going on the Saturday when gardening guru Monty Don was speaking, however things obviously didn’t work out that way. However Sunday turned out to be a great day as all the vendors were happy to see people milling about and very interested in getting rid of product rather than drag everything back with them after the events of there were deals to be had!!   

The awards for best of show had already been given out. And the pictures included show some of the winners but mostly these are simply little displays that caught my eye! So many pretty displays and I was so sad to discover that the few pictures I took of a lovely little display full of little succulents in teapots and teacups didn’t turn out well – they were too dark to use but they have inspired some new projects so maybe soon…

    

While at the show there was a second marquee full of local produce and while I am not really a drinker (of alcohol) I discovered this little stall selling cider which was really lovely and very good value. There were two options – the medium shown below and a sweet version (red bottle in the background). Ultimately I bought three bottles (2green, 1 red) – the red was the winner but there were both really delicious.

If cider is your kind of thing definitely check them out: http://www.longmeadowcider.com

    

I also made two little purchases, these adorable initial mugs for my mum and the floral/bird handbag for myself.      

I also received a free gift from a kind shop owner, who have me this cute chair which I plan to restore either as a functioning seat or into a flower display of some kind… We shall see.

  
Sorry this post is so short and soooo late but this have been a little cray lately but things seem to be heading back to normal. So hopefully I will be back to my semi regular schedule soon.

MadeByMaebhe: Terrarium or Fairy Garden

So as seems to be the course of my life at present – I have been sent another curve ball, although this one is a little more positive, I got a new job – not exactly where i want to be career-wise yet. Its a nice progression but it has been an adjustment and the cause of my most recent leave if absence.

However during this down time i have discovered a new love….Gardening. It has been fun to get a little green fingered and create something living. And now i have a little green spot in my room which makes me ridiculously happy.

So i thought i would share my little creation with you and show you how easy it is to make one for yourself.

Here is my glorious little terrarium:

 Its quite a small terrarium on the overall scale of things, although i have already purchased the bowl for my next littl world, but it suits my room and i love it.

Here are all the things you will need to make your own:

  •   Some mini plants – The little potted succulents shown below, I purchased from a local gardening shop for a pound a plant and the little loose plants are from my parents garden (if taking plants for outdoors just make sure to wash the roots well before planting to remove any bugs etc). However there is a wide array of plants to choose from both succulents and cacti so be adventurous!
  • A glass jar or container of your choosing – glass is best and a jar with some depth is easiest.
  • Pebbles/Stones – I choose ornamental glass stones in purple. These are very important as they are necessary for drainage as your container wont have any.
  • Soil – Normal potting soil is perfect.
  • Decoration – Optional – there are some great examples online where some very talented people have used tiny doll house furniture to make miniature gardens etc so get creative.

      

 
Assembly
After you have collected everything you will need it is just a matter of assembly.

1. Gently wash your container and stones with water and a little soap. Rinse well to remove all detergents and dry before planting.
2. Place a layer of stones along the base of the container for drainage.
3. Then add your layer of soil, maybe two inches worth to create a foundation for your foliage.
4. Now the fun bit! Arrange and plant your succulents, cacti etc.I found it easiest to remove my plants from their pots and set them in my glass jar to arrange them first before planting them, so i was happy with the overall appearance.
5. My chosen stones included some large purple bubble like stones which i used as decoration. However you can be as as adventurous as you like, these little gardens are lovely just as they are.
6. And your Done!!! Spray your terrarium once a week, dont over water them as it will drown the root system. so just keep the soil moist.

A little extra gardening just to brighten up the page: I got a little distracted while shopping for my terrarium supplies and ended up buying two trays of violas which have now been distributed artfully around my parents garden.

If you decide to give these little terrariums a go or if you own one already i would love to see them! It truly is lovely bringing a little bit of nature inside.

Tea blog: The Publishers Revamp

In my last post, I discussed a campaign called the Dark Hunters Re-read which is being organised (to the best of my knowledge) by Sherrilyn Kenyons American publisher MacMillian & St. Martins Press. And this got myself thinking about publishers use of marketing and communications to revive a long running series such as the dark hunter series and it’s possible use for other series.

Case: Sherrilyn Kenyons, Dark Hunters Series

Sherrilyn Kenyons Dark Hunter series has 23 publications to date with 6 in the associated YA series The Chronicles  of Nick. The first book in the series, Fantasy Lover, which admittedly isn’t directly associated with the plot but is a really good book and creates a great introduction to the over all series, was first published in 2002. That’s 13 years, with over 29 books! As this figure does not include ebooks, the associated mangas or her sci-if or romance publications. So collectively that’s a whole lot of books!

I started reading her books while in high school. This means that for myself being reintroduced to the series is not such a big on taking . I already have an understanding of their series and general plot.


Discussion

However for new readers – this must be a pretty daunting series to approach. I have suffered this fear myself with other long running series with examples including George RR Martin, Terry Pratchett, and others. The idea of a organised, community lead re-read which utilises the community sites like for this series: the Offical Sanctuary (click to visit the site and find out more about the re-read and the books) – is an idea which really appeals to myself as a reader and prospective publisher!

The ability to break down a series to a single book, creating a book/reading club feel to allow new readers to discover books from long standing series with the support of established fans. While also allowing existing readers to rediscover books they love.

For the Dark Hunter Re-read I personally feel that this campaign is in need of a significantly increased social media presence. As beyond Sherrilyn Kenyons own site it is hard to find. A simple Google search brought up more of my own sites than Kenyons which is a little disappointing as this seems like such a good opportunity to interact with the digital community. I have recommended this series to numerous friends and colleagues who had never heard of Kenyons – there are always new readers to interact with. And as someone invested in the use of digital marketing and social media, I wish this community marketing campaign had been expanded upon. This might just be an international issue as it seems that this promotion is only being promoted by the U.S. publishers and hopefully this is an idea which will only continue to grow and possibly be used by other series and other authors on a bigger scale.

Thank you for listening to my little publishing rant and I would live to hear what you think about organised rereads and whether you have ever discovered a new author this way?

Dark Hunter Re-Read : Dance with the Devil

I am subscribed to Sherrilyn Kenyon’s newsletter and have been for a long time, however ive been a fan of her series for an even longer period of time! As her Dark Hunter series was one of the first urban fantasy series i discovered and represents of my biggest series collections i own.

image2 (1)

  This isn’t all of the books, its just the biggest collective image i could get & they are mostly in order 🙂 

 However as with many long series, when you discover a series in the middle it’s fun and exciting to binge! Buying books back to back and watching the series progress as your own pace -which in case was quite fast, especially in high school when i had more time and money to spend on just reading! But the series progressed and naturally got more complex, spliting apart into a number of sub plots and eventually creating a Y.A. back story which developed into an independent series for one of the main characters throughout the books, Nick Gautier. (Love him as a character and the YA series is really good.) This meant longer breaks between publications and therefore mentally a slower plot progression. I never lost any love for the series yet somehow i lost contact with the series and i am now a number of books behind.

SO! When i saw the email from Ms. Kenyon’s site discussing the Dark-Hunter Re-read it was the perfect excuse to rediscover some old loves and hopefully get back into the over plot structure. With the end goal of catching up with the publications i haven’t read, seeing what ive been missing out on and hopefully introduce some new readers to this amazingly funny and action packed, romantic urban fantasy series!

rain quote

 One of my favourite quote in life which i discovered from this series and my favourite book!

So the re-read is already a couple of books into the series. However this is exciting for me as the next book being read is Dance with the Devil (Book 3). This book is one of my absolute favourites! Zarek, our male protagonist, is one of those perfect damaged heroes who is really a marshmallow inside in need of a little love. This book also introduced me to another classic children’s novel i hadn’t heard of called The Little Prince which i just had to buy and my first time re-reading this book after reading The little Prince added even more layers to our damaged hero and made his romance with Astrid, our leading lady, all the better.

The humour in this book has already brought back so many memories of why i loved this series and this writer. Her dry wit has me in stitches but it also provides an insight into the characters that other writers can’t often capture. I am about two thirds of the way through and another rediscover was the historical undertones in this series –  as the fantasy element in this series is inspired from Greek Mythology – which as a history graduate with a love for ancient history just pushes all the right buttons for me!

If Sherrilyn Kenyon is a new author to you, i would highly recommend getting involved in the re-read or even just picking up one of her books they are truly amazing. She also writes an awesome Sci-Fi series. But i will be back on this book soon with a short review – don’t want to spoil anything.

But if you do give these books a chance or you already love the Dark Hunter series let me know your thoughts below!

Tea Blog: #DearMe

My various social media sites have been taken over by the Hashtag #DearMe – originally an academic study and a book supported by a number of famous individuals including J. k. Rowling, created to fuel the discussion on what advice you would give your younger (16 year old) self regarding life, work and self confidence. The tag has been revitalised by a the queens of YouTube stars including Felicia Day and Grace Helbig through to Bunny Meyer and many others.

The stories these amazing women have shared so far have all been amazing, promoting self acceptance, confidence in both body and mind and general positivity when it comes to looking on life. It is simply inspiring to hear women who I aspire to, share stories about their own inadequcies and the struggles that they have overcome in life, so I decided to throw in my thoughts.

Young Maebhe was an incredibly awkward individual. Following an equally awkward start in primary school, the girl who spent most of her life lost inside her own mind, drifting out off windows or with her nose buried in a book (most likely a Harry Potter novel) I had a hard time making new friends. While I had friends and wasn’t bullied in high school, I struggled to adapt to social situations and had the pleasure of being the only member of the Library club in my first year. Growing up my greatest fear was a sense of social invisibility and the lose of self. I wanted to challenge my social anxiety, make more friends and become a more outgoing individual without having to lose myself to fit in. I loved my pink hair, I loved my books and my many other nerdy interests.

Now 22, I am a graduate, job hunting and I still have my pink hair, adore my books and have found many more nerdy loves. However I have grown as a person, I am much more confident in the person I am and my passions. Developing a thick skin against those who would drag me down to their level or encourage us to settle for “little town ambitions”.

#DearMe : I would want to tell younger me to hold strong to my dreams. Don’t let the doubts and differing opinions of others threaten your ambitions so much or discourage you. You will meet your best friends at university. People who will stick with you throughout life, who understand and love you for your bookiness!

As for romantic love – that will come later- stop stressing!


  

  However this is just the beginning we will continue to meet new people and take on more adventures – so I’m sure I’ll be back in a few years time with an update. We will hold on to our favourite mantras;
 Carpe Diem, Thrive & “Life isn’t finding shelter in the storm. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” (From Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Acheron- small hint about my next post)!

  Share your #DearMe story on Twitter on your own blog or below!!

I would love to hear your stories and your advice and ambitions 😄

Samantha Ellis’ Top 5 Literary Heroines

I need to get this book! Truly sounds amazing. A very feminist review of the women in classical novels (& I love that she agrees with my views on Cathy from Wuthering Heights!)

Penguin Blog

Samantha Ellis, author of How to be a Heroine, is fully aware of the importance of strong female role-models within the literary canon. So much so, that she’s written a book on the subject. Here she talks us through five of her favourites, from Anne of Green Gables to Scarlett O’Hara.

When I felt like I wanted to change, I used to read about the good-girl heroines of Victorian novels, but as Jane Austen rightly said, ‘Pictures of perfection…make me sick and wicked’, and now, if I try reading What Katy Did, Little Women or (aarghh) Pollyanna, I’m liable to get so mutinous that I throw down the books, drink all the whisky, put on my best dress and go rampaging. But here are some heroines I still reach for when I need inspiration.

Made by Maebhe: Crotchet Creations

All this crafting inspiration has inspired me to start a new series: Made by Maebhe.

I’m not sure exactly how regular (regularity being an issue that i already need to work on) a contribution this series will be to my blog. However i wanted an opportunity to share my creations and share new skills i am learning.

The discovery of  my current favourite magazines, Mollie Makes and Simply Crotchet, has truly been sources of inspiration, fueling the need to buy some new wool so i can try out some of the new skills they talk about and replicate some of their ideas.

However before i get too ambitious i thought i would share some of my little creations to date. So far i haven’t taken on many large projects, however below you will be able to see two blankets i have made – however the first (red & white) took a ridiculously long time to complete since these big projects are something i tend to start and when i put it away for the evening i can forget to pull out again for quite sometime.

Giant Granny Square Blanket with scalloped edge

I am embarrassed to admit that this blanket has to be one of the slowest creations i have ever worked on. My Granny taught me how to crotchet when i was about 11 years old and this was one of the first projects i ever took on. I never liked joining the little squares together so for my first blanket i would just make a GIANT square. Simple but time consuming and therefore made it a lot less appealing a project to pull out whenever the crotchet cravings kicked in.

However 11 years later it is finally finished although i probably should have made it a little bigger if i wanted it to be a true blanket. I think its just a throw more than anything now, prettily adorning the end of my bed.

Crotchet Bows

This is one of my favourite little projects to make and i now have them in an assortment of colours and sizes. Below i have two examples in turquoise. I love putting them on clips for my hair or safety pins for coats etc. Can be made in about an 20 mins, really satisfying little project.Granny Squares and Hexagons

I crocheted these while living in Edinburgh completing my Masters. I have a box full of granny squares – many of which are a little funny as i have some difficulty with maintaining the same level of tension. There were many evenings after uni- or work when it was too abysmal to go outside or i was simply too tired to deal with people, i would turn to netflix and crotchet to pass the time and relax.

The hexagons i saw on my favourite crotchet blog – Attic24. Lucy, the crafter and creator of this blog makes some amazing and beautiful things with crotchet. I really cant recommend her blog enough! she is one of the few written tutorial i can easily understand and follow and she really has some beautiful tutorials. The rest of this post are all projects i learnt how to do from her site.

She made a beautiful Hexagon Blanket and i was in love. So i spent an evening learning how to make them. I didn’t have enough wool or colours to do them justice, however i have ambitions to return to this project with some good quality and brightly coloured wool.

Hearts and Roses

These last little projects are a few of the ones i had at hand but like my granny squares i have more in storage, especially the flowers which i can now make a couple of different kinds of flowers.

These are really cute little projects which can be added to clothing or other projects. I also made a number of bow headbands at Christmas for friends and family so i can find my own at the moment. However i made a few plain straight headbands and added these little flowers to decorate.—————————————————————————————————————————

I really hope to expand my skills this year and take on a number of new projects. I have already learned how to make a magic circle as a start for most amigurumi which is my most resent love and i am trying to learn.

Thank you for taking the time to read my little post and i would love to hear about your crafting ambitions or any useful learning resources.

Tea Blog: Crafting Resolutions

Since the start of the new year I have been so invested in trying to get a new job i .e. Leave my student stage behind and start a ‘career’ – without much success so far. As this can have a rather negative affect on your mental health and attitude. These effects are exasperated by the month joy of hormones.

When my mood is negatively impacted by life I always return to my crafting loves, especially my love of crotchet. I’m not sure if this is something I have ever really discussed on here but I was taught to crotchet by my granny when I was wee, as she looked after me a lot when my parents were working. And since then, following the growth of the Internet & the discovery of a wealth of tutorials and blogs on the topic I have expanded my crotcheting abilities beyond the simple granny squares to include everything from roses to bow headbands (which became quite popular Christmas presents last year).

I know it is late to be discussing resolutions beyond my usual reading resolutions to expand my reading pool & tackle my TBR pile. However I have decided that with the desire to maintain a positive outlook that I will continue to expand upon my crafting skills through the creation of unique and fun items.

As a start of this new resolution I purchased two magazines as inspiration;

2015/01/img_0056.jpg

Magazine One: Simply Crotchet

Magazine Two: Mollie Makes

I believe that these magazines are published by the same publisher and there is a range of magazines involved including Simply Sew and other crafting magazines. However I think I’ll stick with my crotchet for now…. Although I do have plans to buy a sewing machine because I love my vintage finds and would love to be able to alter them myself therefore widening my options (despite as serious loss in the number of vintage fairs in Northern Ireland compared to Scotland).

What drew my attention to both these magazines was their beautiful design and simply layout. But most importantly their crotchet designs were also extremely exciting and already i have been inspired and have started learning a new skill called Amigurumi – taken from the Japanese terms for cute (Kawaii) and yarn. They are little projects made using continuous circle chains rather than rows. And from what I have seen online the options and creations are endless! I can’t wait to learn more.

These magazines both also came with little craft projects! A little needle holder & like heart crotchet pack (they can be made to look like old school American tattoos).

I am excited to see where I can go with this- what I can learn, what I will create and how it will make me feel. I hope you will share your creative outlets and hopefully a new series will come out of my new crafting resolutions.

Review: BBC Radio4 adaptation of Good Omens

I have mentioned in recent posts about my new found love of audiobooks. Their convenience has allowed me to diversify my reading as well as rediscover old literary loves, from the Harry Potter novels through to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

This has resulted in a new discovery- the radio adaptation! My best buddy & literary adviser Sio, knowing my long running love of Neil Gaiman & my recent investigation into Terry Pratchett’s books (specifically Mort), recommended I listen to BBC Radio4’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s & Terry Pratchett’s collaborative publication Good Omens.

2015/01/img_0053.jpg

And as always she was correct! I can honestly say that I have listened to this series (all 6 episodes) three times now & I am devastated that I will no longer be able to listen to them on my iPad – as to date they’ve been available on the BBC radio iPlayer but have just recently been removed. I had heard via Neil Gaiman’s Facebook that the book was being adapted for the radio however I missed it on the radio & didn’t think to search for it online- therefore I only discovered the series a week before it is removed from the online app.

Back to the Review: The adaptation was wonderfully done and is simply hilarious. I also own the paperback book however previously I had struggled to invest any interest in the topic or genre of this book, despite the written quality naturally imbedded by the very nature of its authors. A book on the apocalypse of Earth, control of which is in the hands of an eleven year old boy is simply not something I am interested in reading – although I do love the Supernatural series. But I have been completely converted! In a brief summary – the anti Christ has been sent to earth & is destined to bring about Armageddon- however the Angels and Demons who inhabit the earth don’t particularly want to leave & are rather comfortable. Therefore two very unlikely friends, the demon Crowley & the Angel Aziraphale join together in an attempt to stop the apocalypse from happening – during which much hilarity ensues. There are also some deep lessons hidden behind sarcasm & innuendo- from devil worshiping nuns who coo & count the “toesie-woesies” of the anti Christ through to Pollution replacing Pestilence as one of the Horsemen (Sorry…Horse-people, as War is a woman! And a seriously kick ass b***h,) of the Apocalypse after the invention of antibiotics.

One of my favourite quotes, although it’s minuscule in the overall plot, however Crowleys tone at being handed the anti Christ has had me in stitches;

Eternal….. Tool

The quality of this adaptation is even better than the audiobooks I have listened to, to date. The actors are all amazing & I may have a small crush on Crowley for his voice alone. The music (which includes a lot of Queen) & sound affects are also perfect for example the torturous screams we can hear in the background anytime Crowley rings Hell. Another of my favourite aspects of the adaptation is the overlays from the BBC radio presenters to talking about apocalyptic events in completely average conversation. From Gardens question Time discussing the consequences of Fish falling from the sky….

Well, I’m a keen rose grower, but my prize-winning Molly McGuire lost a
couple of blossoms yesterday in a rain of what were apparently fish. What
does the team recommend for this, other than place netting over the garden?”
— R.P.Tyler on Gardeners’ Question Time, Good Omens

Or those pesky Tibetans digging tunnels all the way through the earth,

“…now as keen gardeners know, it goes without sayin’ that he’s a cunnin’
little devil, your Tibetan. Tunnelin’ straight through your begonias like
it was nobody’s business. A cup of tea’ll shift him, with rancid yak butter
for preference…” — Gardeners’ Question Time, Good Omens

And finally this adaptation was made extra special cameo appearance of Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman in the first episode as policemen, who sadly come to a tragic end soon after (eaten but a hellish creature from the sound of things).

I honestly couldn’t recommend this book/audio adaptation any more – full 10 out of 10. So If you get a chance to listen to this adaptation, the cd of which is available on Amazon or you could possibly find it elsewhere online, It is totally worth the time invested to listen. It’s also a great opportunity to investigate a new author or genre if you’re new to Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman.

Have you ever listened to this or any other radio adaptation? I would love to hear what you think!

Top 5 Wednesday: Series I Want to Start This Year

So as part of my renewed writing ambitions for 2015 i have joined the ‘Top 5 Wednesday‘ family – which generates top 5 topics every week, assisting in the creative flow and uniting a lot of book bloggers/youtubers. However as I am sure you can tell – unless you havent got a calender, your phone is broke & for some reason the electronic device you are reading this on has no calender – this is not wednesday….So a minor fail at starting this series on time. However i was really interested in this weeks topic so i decided to blog about it anyway!

This weeks topic is the Top 5 Series i want to start reading this year – so i have decided to use this the attack some of my To-Be-Read list some of which i have been meaning to read for years, which is a little embarrassing to think about. But also the first book in series i already own and have attempted to read before but something didn’t click first go so this is the perfect excuse to try again.LoLL

1. Gentlemen Bastard Series Scott Lynch Book One: The Lies of Locke Lamora

This is the first book which i have been meaning to read for so long. Sio, who will become a recurring individual in this post – introduced me to this book. A book which combines Robin Hood – but one who keeps all the riches for himself and his Band of Gentlemen Bastards – who doesn’t
love a thief! But i finally bought a copy of this book so hopefully this will be the year to take on the challenge of this book!

 

 

2. KingKiller Chronicles  Patrick Rothfuss Book One: Name of the WindNotW

This is a series/book that i have been meaning to read for at least two years! My fabulous friend Sio if full of booky knowledge and recommendations and has introduced me to many of my favourite reads like Naomi Novak series. However she introduced me to this book while at university together and i am currently in possession of her copy of this book. So i am determined that this is my year to read this book, especially since i don’t have the workload looming overhead like i have previously.

A Crime, Magic, High Fantasy combo which induces images of an adult Harry Potter in a medieval setting – I can’t wait!

 

3. Mistborn Trilogy Brandon Sanderson Book One: The Final EmpireMB

Another Sio recommendation – Sanderson manages to combine magic, intrigue and revolution to create his high fantasy series with a strong female lead! Something which makes a book a little extra special for me.

This series also introduces a new magic from any other series i have read so far – Allomancy – the use of different metals to generate magic power which has strictly controlled by the rich and powerful. They were clearly asking for revolution – so i can’t wait to see what our heroes get up to.

 

 

4. The Farseer Trilogy Robin Hobb Book One: Assassins ApprenticeAA

Can we tell yet that Sio is the person i go to for High Fantasy recommendations? 🙂 This book a little bit of a cheat as i have started this book before but a sad part in the plot made me put it down for a long time and i struggled to pick it back up. However i recently rediscovered and continued reading and i am loving the plot so far.

Plot wise this book is a little difficult to explain as it is a medieval tale with a little bit of magic thrown in. However most of the plot surrounds our main character Fitz and his training as- title gives it away -an assassins apprentice. With royalty, plots and danger it is thrilling a nice change from the urban fantasy books i usually read.

 

5. Arcana Chronicles Kresley Cole Book: Poison PrincessPP

Moving away from the high fantasy books and Sio’s recommendations – Poison Princess is a YA urban fantasy dystopia, and the series is plotted around the Arcana or Fortune telling card characters or their personification, for lack of a better word. Basically to me it seems like Xmen meets the apocalypse – the end of our world causes 22 teenagers to gain magical powers and a battle between good and evil ensues.

With 22 characters im not a 100% sure how this series will progress as there are only three books published so far. However i am a huge fan of Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series so i can’t wait to give this book a go!
