Merry Christmas!

Well hello everybody! I hope Santa's been nice to you all.  Santa was certainly nice to me giving me a new laptop and all. New laptop means more stories.... Anyways, I've been getting a lot of questions about my life and all (nope totally not worried about stalkers....) so I'm completely changing my stuff about my life book on wattpad and filling it with answers. I am also slowly going to add my wattpad stories to this blog for those of you who don't have a wattpad account. PDFs will be made soon for you to download!
Hugs and cookies,

New short stories coming soon!

So...for school we had to write a short story, so I am planning to upload that by Friday. I'm also looking to find a short story from last year to upload as well. I was also wondering, would you like me to upload my stories to this blog? I'm thinking about doing that as a page.
Hugs and virtual cookies for Santa,

New Story, Title Image, and More: An Update From Katniss Stone

       I haven't posted in months, and I figured it was time. A lot has happened since I last posted, one of these things being the first chapter of my romance novel was published. This novel is called If She Left. It tells the story from superstar Olivia and small town Payle's point of view. One sentence summary:
      When Olivia moved to Ambia, Indiana to prepare for her role as a small town girl in a movie, she didn't expect to meet the love of her life. (Warning: This is not a "I cannot function without my boyfriend" novels. Olivia is an independent woman who can support herself, and if you want a story where a girl cannot function without her boyfriend than please, go read Twilight.)
       In other news, my blog title picture is a little [about a year] outdated. I'm going to get some pictures taken soon and update them. New stories are in the works, but I'm mostly working on getting Selected published.
    One final thought: With Christmas approaching soon I have a few questions I would like you to answer in the comments:

  1. Would you like a twelve or maybe even five days to Christmas blog-tacular?
  2. How about a Christmas blog give-away?
  3. Any thoughts about the future of this blog, or any requests?

How to make your own shampoo and conditioner

Okay. So if you guys know anything about me, you know I'm addicted to pinterest.  (Follow me! I thinks it's either smileyfacesara or KatnissStone) So, for some odd reason I decided I wanted to learn how to make my own Shampoo and Conditioner, because let's face it. Normal shampoos have a LOT of chemicals. Anyways, I got on Pinterest and searched and found a lot of interesting things. Most of these things had coconut milk, oil (do you even realize how oily my hair is?), or some other ingredient that I would have to leave the house to buy. Then, I found the magic recipe! I took two ingredients that everybody should contain to make. Baking soda and water. Plus, it came with an adjoining conditioner recipe. So here's how to make it:

Make-It Monday: HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN MAGNETS

        Hey guys! Remember when I announced that I would post on Mondays? Then I said I would make Mondays DIY days? Yeah? Good. 'Cause that takes place now. Today I am going to show you how to make your own magnets. The examples are kind of old because I took them while making magnets for my teacher's end of the year gift. Without further ado, here is the tutorial:

SUPPLIES

  1. Modge Podge
  2. Magnets (circular )
  3. E-600 glue (I used tacky glue, but this is supposed to work better)
  4. Flat bottom glass marbles
  5. Scissors
  6. Scrapbook paper

INSTRUCTIONS


  1. Choose some cool scrapbook paper with a design you want put on your magnets. I don't know if this would work with photos or not. 
  2. Lay your marble over the design. Does it fit? Cut out the design, leaving a decent sized border. It's better to have too much paper than not enough. 
  3. Put Modge Podge on the flat side of your marble.
  4. Stick your marble onto the design you want.
  5. Wait. My magnets took about thirty minutes. Wait until you see almost no modge podge through the marble, and cannot move your marble. (The last one is important for the next step)
  6. Cut the paper around your marble. 
  7. Put glue on the magnets and add it to the marble.
  8. Let it dry and ta-da! Your magnets are done! 
(For some unknown reason I took no pictures of the finished result?!)

#SummerBreak14

        School. We all hate it. (Unless you are a mom in which case your relationship is love hate.) I realize it is an exaggeration to say ALL so I will rephrase that. Most of us hate it. But....the good news is...... My school ends in TEN days!!! YAY! We would end sooner, but I live in the great state of Indiana (SAME AS HAZEL GRACE OMG #fangirling) so we had to deal with SNOW. Not President Snow, but actual cold icky wet SNOW. So school got canceled for a week, and then a few days, and then half a week - well you get the point! So we had to make up. If you are a mom who is reading this because who knows why, I hope you enjoy your last few weeks of freedom from your children. Unless your kids go to my school, in which case sickness is going around (just missed two days) and you better watch out. If you are a teen, then yay for us because only two more weeks of suffering. Besides the last week of school is like camp. You have to go to bed on time, and wake up early, but you have fun! And.... since this year I'm a 6th grader (My school corp is k - 6 then 7 and 8 and finally 9 -12) we get to go on field trips, do color runs, promotion ceremony, et cetera. Any, enough about school because this post is about summer, and I'll blog about those things later ( my pinkie promises (or is it pinky promise?) whatever.

     SO, this summer is a busy one. I might not even have time to *GASP* read City of Heavenly Fire! Let's start off the schedule (I'm pretty much telling you what I am doing, because a. the rest of my family will be home so you cannot rob our house and b. you will know when and why I am not blogging. )
Actually, before we start the schedule, I want to start off with something about me. If you've read my book A little bit about me you should know that I am a HUGE Christian. If you follow me on pinterest you would know that as well. I like to call myself a Jesus freak, but most people don't understand that. CLICK HERE FOR THE AWESOME SONG IF YOU DON'T GET THE REFERENCE! 
Catchy isn't it? So, anyway I'm devoting most of my summer to Jesus. Now that you know that, here is the schedule.

  • June 1 -26 - Tennis camp (in the mornings Sun. - Thurs. only.)
  • June 6 - The Fault In Our Stars movie. (The review will probably be posted on COAYABW)
  • June 15 - 20 - Hanging Rock Christian Camp (All day.) *
  • June 30 - July 5 - Twin Lakes Camp :D (another Christian camp. All day.) You should totally come if you live in Indiana! Kids come there from Illinois too! Now that you know when I'm going we could have to same cabin or lodge! (email me or comment if you are actually going that week!) *
  • July 20 - 25 - Love week for my church. (Rock Point) (Depends on what I sign up for)
  • July 27 - August 2 - ST. LOUIS MISSION TRIP (All day obviously.) I'm so excited! Another mission trip! I went to St. Kitts earlier this year and it was GREAT! I can't wait to serve the lord and community of St. Louis during this mission trip! (Comment if you are going! I know multiple churches are going so I'm just curious)
So that's pretty much all. We are still working on everything. I also lead devotions a week at a time so days. I will choose a few days a week and try to stick to posting on them. I cannot post on Sundays. Thanks for taking forever to read this!
See you soon!,
Katniss Stone

What's going on on this blog?!

     Well, hello everyone! I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while. School!  So I've decided that this blog will just be about me and my life. So I will be posting about EVERYTHING! That's right, I'm going full blogger.
         See you soon!

My Trip To St. Kitts!

     Just in case you didn't know, I was in St. Kitts this previous week. I had a great time, and a long thought out post will come soon. I was there on a mission trip and hope that I will be able to stay in touch with some of the girls I met there.
                                                             So long for now,
                                                                    Katniss Stone
