Not The Profiler She Was Cracked Up To Be – Fanfiction

Hey Guys πŸ™‚

Who’s ready for another bank holiday weekend?! I know I am! I hope you all have a good weekend, relaxing and crafting. Just a little story that I wrote ages ago, but posting this and the one I posted a couple of weeks ago has helped me get the writing bug again which is good. πŸ™‚ No spoilers in this story, just a character who appears in the show from series two I believe.

Any mistakes are mine. πŸ™‚

Title: Not The Profiler She Was Cracked Up To Be!

Summary:Β Lori starts to reflect on her value on the team. Oneshot!

Disclaimer:Β I don’t own Hawaii 5-o sadly :(, the ideas and characters belong to their respectful owners. No infringement intended.

Lori slowly walked up to Steve’s front door, not really believing that she was about to do this. After months of pushing away her feelings, today was the day she was going to tell Steve she had the biggest school girl crush on him and to see if he wanted to go out to dinner if he felt the same – God, she hoped so.

Taking a deep breath, Lori lifted her hand to knock on the door but stopped when there was a yelp followed by a splash and the sound of laughter coming from the back of the house. Frowning, she walked round to the back to find a dripping wet Danny standing waist deep in the sea, giving Steve a murderous look who was laughing his head off. Lori’s breath hitched when she saw Steve’s half naked body, also dripping with water, with his swimming trunks riding very low on his hips.

Distracted by the view of Steve, Lori missed Danny give Steve an evil smile and next thing she knew Danny was tackling Steve into the water. Lori couldn’t help but roll her eyes. They were acting like a couple of teenaged boys – next they’ll be wrestling in the sand. She was happy that Steve and Danny seemed to be closer than most partners, acting more like brothers than work colleagues but now was not the time. She really needed to speak to Steve alone and found herself once again wishing that Danny wasn’t here – He probably wouldn’t go quietly when she asked him to.

After about a minute, both Steve and Danny came up from the water, breathing heavily and standing only about an inch from each other. Getting ready to call out, Lori stopped when Steve wrapped his arms around Danny’s waist and Danny, although still ranting, wrapped his arms around Steve’s neck.

Her heart ached when she saw the love and affection written across Steve’s face when he bent down to capture Danny’s moving mouth in a kiss. Not wanting to watch anymore in fear that her heart would break, Lori turned away and walked to the front of the house before they noticed her.

How could she have been so stupid? No wonder their partnership worked. They didn’t see each other as brothers but as lovers. Lori had been too focused on her crush on Steve to notice this. How could she be a profiler for the team if she missed what was staring her right in the face?

Lori started to reflect on her value on the team, as she drove out of Steve’s drive: wondering if she was the profiler she was cracked up to be.

The Bunny Looks Like A Bunny – WIP

Good Evening πŸ™‚

How was your Easter weekends? Mine was great, I went home to my parent’s for it and had a bit of a crafting weekend. The Bunny cross stitch is finished and made into a card, he now looks like a bunny, not too sure about the French Knots but he’s already to be given away. πŸ™‚

My mum very nicely made me a little present while I was at home, she made me a crochet purse to hold my crochet needles in. I love the flower on the back, I think my mum is so clever, I need a bit more practice me thinks.

I have started a new crochet project though, I know it doesn’t look like much now, just a green rectangle but it will hopefully be an iPad cover. πŸ™‚ Also over the weekend I treated myself to some stitch markers and my mum bought me a row counter, both of which I am using already so I feel like a proper crocheter now. xD

So slowly but surely my projects are coming along but every time I finish one theres always another to start. Do you ever find that?

Oh well its the weekend tomorrow so plenty of time to work on my projects. πŸ™‚

Snowflake And Bunny WIP

Good Evening Again πŸ™‚

Just a small update on my projects this week as I have been soooo busy with work but I have managed to finish off my snow flake ❄️ πŸ™‚ I think it looks great! The French Knots were a bit tricky as the design called for the use of six threads so it was a bit of a task to get it through the holes but I managed it. I also had a go at a new stitch, called a Rhodes Heart Stitch ❀️, which can be seen in the middle of the snowflake. I don’t think they look too bad seeing that I had never done this stitch before but I think I will be trying it again in another project. If anyone wants to have a go, this is the website I used to help me, its pretty good and it includes pictures so you know if you’re doing it right. πŸ™‚

Even though the bunny 🐰 is small, he seems to be taking longer than my other smaller projects but he’s getting there. He’s slowly starting to look like a bunny, got a couple more white stitches to put in and then I can start on the darker colours.

Just a small post tonight but hopefully next week I’ll have more to show you. πŸ™‚ I hope you all have a good Easter weekend whether you celebrate it, have a four day weekend or have to work it, I hope its a good one. πŸ™‚

Not Forever – Fanfiction

Good Evening πŸ™‚

I have a few stories in the works at the moment but I feel like I’ve lost the writing bug so I thought that maybe posting a story may help me find it again. πŸ™‚ Plus I haven’t posted a story in a while so why not kill two birds with one stone? πŸ™‚ It’s quite a short story, there’s no spoilers, i just borrowed the characters. xD

Any mistakes made are mine as I haven’t had it proof read so sorry about that, hope you enjoy. πŸ™‚

Title:Β Not Forever

Summary: ‘People may think the reason Steve and Danny didn’t get along at first was because of Steve stealing Danny’s case. But they’re wrong. People may think them meeting in the garage was the first time. But they’re wrong.’ Oneshot!

‘People may think the reason Steve and Danny didn’t get along at first was because of Steve stealing Danny’s case. But they’re wrong. People may think them meeting in the garage was the first time. But they’re wrong.’

Steve looked around their new headquarters, it was only him and Danny – the cousins had left after finishing their third beers. He didn’t know how he was feeling; it had been a long time since he last saw Danny. He was still handsome, still short tempered and a loud mouth, still managed to talk with his hands but Steve couldn’t help the smile on his face as he thought about the other things those hands could do.

“What you smiling at?” Danny asked, taking a last swig of his beer.

“Do you remember the last time we danced?” Steve countered back, standing up from where he was leaning on the table.

“In the middle of Military Park, the summer after high school had finished.” Danny answered with the hint of a smile on his lips.

“You were on your way to Newark International to catch a plane to England.” Steve slowly started to walk towards to where Danny was sitting.

“You were supposed to follow me.” The smile was gone from Danny’s lips as he stood up.

“You said you needed space.” Steve said quietly, stopping in front of Danny, who sighed before he looked up at the taller man

“I didn’t mean forever.” Came his reply shaking his head a little.

Steve didn’t know what to say; all those years he could’ve saved wondering what his life would’ve been like if he had followed Danny like he wanted to. All of the time they could’ve saved if Steve didn’t listen for once in his life. Steve looked down at Danny, they were so close all he needed to do was lean a little closer and they would be kissing. He wanted too so much but before he could, Danny’s phone began to ring and Steve was brought back to reality with a “Hey monkey!” coming from Danny’s smiling face. Of course Danny didn’t wait forever, how could Steve ever forget that? Danny now was a family man with a daughter and an ex wife.

Steve’s heart broke as he watched the one that got away walk out of the glass doors, laughing on his phone at something Grace had said.

Cards, A Snowflake and A New Hobby

Good Evening πŸ™‚

How is everyone? Hope you all had a good week. πŸ™‚ I’m loving the fact that the sun is trying to shine and is hopefully here to stay for a little while.

First of I wanted to show you guys what the cards looked like of the stitches I finished and posted about last week. πŸ™‚ I’m thinking of giving the cat card as a birthday card, there are quite a few birthdays coming up in the next month. And the boat steering wheel I have to wait a few months as I’m thinking of giving it to my dad for Father’s Day. πŸ™‚ I love the little stickers that I’ve decorated the card with. πŸ™‚

I’ve almost finished all the backstitch of the snowflake and I think it looks great. πŸ™‚ Next will be the French knots, which I’m not a bit fan of as I’m not very good at them but I know the detail of them will look great around the snowflake. πŸ™‚ The other small project I have also started is a freebie from a magazine and will be, when its finished, a bunny rabbit. Doesn’t look like one right now but I promise you it will be and then it will be made into a card that it came with. πŸ™‚ The shades of the colours are quite similar so its been a bit difficult to stitch but I don’t think it looks too bad. πŸ™‚

I have also started a new hobby, the art of crochet. πŸ™‚ You can never have too many hobbies I think. xD A couple of people in my family do crochet and there are some amazing bloggers I follow that also do the craft and it inspired me to give it a go. I have tried to do it in the past but I wasn’t very good so I gave up but this time I’m determined to stick to it. I don’t I’ve done too bad for a beginner, its a bit wonky but practice will make perfect. πŸ™‚

I’m hoping the sun stays out over the weekend and that you all have a good weekend. πŸ™‚ I’ve not got much planned so I may have time to do be a bit of crafting which should be good. πŸ™‚

The Liebster Award

Good Evening Again πŸ™‚

So I got a nice surprise on Sunday (5th) morning when I got a nomination from Jessica for the Liebster Award. You can check out her blog over atΒ EverthecrafterΒ – you really should, her projects are amazing. πŸ˜‰ Her question were great, took me some time to answer some of them but I had fun doing it. πŸ™‚

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and answer the 11 questions they’ve written for you.
  • Nominate 11 people and give them 11 different questions to answer.

 

1. If you had to pick one, what would you say is the achievement you’re most proud of?

The biggest achievement I am most proud of would be…well I have two options but seeing that I had to pick oneΒ it would be getting a graduate job so soon after graduating.Β 

2. What was your favourite book you read last year?

Inferno by Darren Brown, so much better than the film, I love his stories. I’m a bit of a history geek so I love all the facts and theories he puts in his books. It makes me want to travel and find all these places that he talks about in his books. The ending of the book I also didn’t see coming and I thought was very clever.

3. If you could visit one place and live there for a month where would you go?

For a third year module I had the opportunity to travel to Guatemala and I had such an amazing time! I was only there for a short while but it really sparked a want to travel and see new cultures. I would love to go back for a longer period and explore the country more and go back to some of the places I visited on my university trip.

4. What’s one thing you want to be able to look back on this year and say I did that?

Okay so maybe this is cheating but I’m stealing my second options from question one and I’m going to say graduating from University with a 2:1. There were times where I felt like giving up but I did it and I’m so proud of myself that I did. πŸ™‚

5.Β Favourite book with an animal in it?

This is a tough question believe it or not. xD I can’t remember the last time a read a book that had an animal in it. My boyfriend suggested the Jungle Book but I realised I’ve never read it, I’ve only seen the films, how bad is that? xD So the only other book I can think of is the Harry Potter series and that counts right?

6. Where did your blog name come from?

How I got my blog name isn’t very exciting xD Emz I got from a website that generates random user names and its a nickname that just stuck. Crafty Creations is just because I wanted to showcase the crafts I was creating. xD Not very imaginative I know but it seems to work. πŸ™‚

7. If you could pick one craft to be suddenly proficient in/have all the supplies for, what would you pick?

Knitting, my aunt knits and she’s amazing at it! She use to make me clothes when I was younger and its just pretty cool that she can make pretty much anything out of some wool and a couple of needles.Β 

8. What would be your top three places to visit?

  • 1. Japan/Asia in general – my Dad travels for work and he says Japan is such a crazy and fun place to visit.
  • 2. Australia – have Christmas on the beach. xD
  • 3. California – to see my aunt and uncle. Β 

9. What’s your favourite word?

I seem to be saying the word ‘sweet’ a lot recently. xD Not sure why but when someone answers a question for me or someone agrees with me, I answer sweet for some reason. xD

10. What would be in a bouquet of your favourite flowers? Or would it all be one? Or anything of a particular colour?

Chrysanthemums and roses are my favourite flowers. Chrysanthemum mean fidelity and longlife, whereas depending on the colour of the rose it can mean something else, I love red roses which mean love. Around valentines day I saw some multi coloured roses and roses that had red glitter on the petals, now these are obvious not naturally this colour but I just thought they were so pretty.

11. What’s your favourite song right now?

My favourite song right now is Castle on The Hill by Ed Sheeran, I especially love the line ‘When we did not know the answers’. Although the song is about his life and growing up, I feel like I can relate to it and it reminds me of when I was younger. When life seemed simpler and I didn’t have to worry about the troubles of adult life.Β 

My questions are:

  1. What is your favourite type of music?
  2. Why did you start blogging?
  3. If you could be in any TV show or film what would it be and why?
  4. Wheres the most exciting place you visited?
  5. Whats the one thing you can’t live without?
  6. Whats your favourite food?
  7. If you could change places with anyone for the day who would it be and why?
  8. Whats your dream job?
  9. Can you speak more than one language?
  10. Whats the one skill you wish you could master?
  11. Whats your spirt animal?

My nominees are:

  1. Wicked StitcherΒ 
  2. Sophie
  3. ivyjade234
  4. Michelle
  5. eikenin
  6. Mrs Craft
  7. BloominBootiful
  8. lockhart2016
  9. Once Upon a Thong
  10. Puddleside Musings
  11. Purple Butterfly

So there are my answers to the questions, some were easier than others so answer. The people I’ve nominated are people who follow my blog or I follow theirs and I think they’re amazing bloggers! Of course there is no pressure to take part and answer my amazing(?) questions but it would be interesting to see some of people’s answers. πŸ™‚ Thank you again to Jessica for the nomination, sorry it took me so long to post my answers. xD

WIP – I’ve Been Busy

Gooooddddd evening! πŸ˜€

How are you all? I’m not too bad myself but I cannot believe that not only have I not posted in over two weeks but I haven’t posted at all in March! Time has just gotten away with me recently, that doesn’t mean though I haven’t been busy with my projects. πŸ™‚

To start off I finished off the Christmas present my boyfriend got me and its nicely presented in the hoop it came with. πŸ™‚ I just need now to find somewhere to hang it up. Its quite simple in the fact its only three colours but I love it!

I’ve also finished the boat steering wheel and the cat with the flowers, they just need to be made into cards. πŸ™‚ I think I know who I’m going to give each card to, can’t wait! I can’t believe how quickly I finished the cat cross stitch, love these little mini kits. πŸ™‚ I think it only took me a few hours to complete it all.

And last but not least I’ve made a start on the snowflake cross stitch I got for Christmas, perhaps its a bit too late or early to be stitching a snowflake but I just love the red aida. Beginning of the week it started off as just a blank piece of red aida and now its about half way done. πŸ™‚ I’ve finished all the the cross stitches, just started on the back stitch and then I think there are some French Knots. πŸ™‚

I hope you are all having a good week so far, mines not going too badly. Sorry again for being ‘radio silent’ as it were. xD I should hopefully be back to the regular weekly updates. πŸ™‚

Cards Everywhere!

Good Afternoon πŸ™‚

Hope you’re all having a good weekend. πŸ™‚ Today I had to do all the adult jobs that no one wants to do but has to such as food shopping and cleaning. But now those jobs are all done I can relax this evening and all of tomorrow. πŸ˜€

This week I finished the little camper van with the Christmas tree on top and made it into a cute little Christmas card. πŸ™‚ I also added some patterned tape along the bottom as you can see as I felt it needed a little something to make it extra festive! Who doesn’t love little dogs in coats? πŸ™‚

After finishing the van I started two new projects, one to work on while at work and a slightly bigger one to work on while at home. The one I’m stitching at work is the ship wheel, not done much but I’ve got quite a few months before it needs to be finished. I know already how I’m going to mount it and who to give it to. πŸ™‚

The bigger one that I’m working on at home is the project kit that I got for Christmas from my boyfriend. I thought I had better start it seeing that its such a nice present. πŸ™‚ Although its a simple design I’m really enjoying it as I’ve never done a project thats just wording so its fun to see it come to life. πŸ™‚

Yesterday was my mum’s birthday so I made the cocktail cross stitch into a card and gave it to her. I don’t think it looks too bad and she enjoyed receiving the card as much as I liked making it. I quite like this card making business, I think it brings a new spin on the finished projects and who can resist gold glitter?! xD I think I will be making more cards and adding to them in the future. πŸ™‚

Hope you all have a nice relaxing Sunday, hopefully it will be nice and relaxing for me as I work on more of my projects. πŸ™‚

Too Early or Too Late?

Good Afternoon πŸ™‚

Wooo it’s almost Friday! 😊 I seem to be on fire with this crafting business. πŸ˜‚ Monday I started on the campervan cross stitch and it’s almost finished already! Just need some wheels, windows and snow, add in some backstitch and it’ll be ready to be made into a card. 

img_5375

Last night I finally made these guys into cards, they’ve just being sitting in my craft box for a few months so I thought it’s about time I did something with them. I think they look pretty great but perhaps I’m being a bit late with making all these Christmas themed stitches. Or am I being too early as it is onky February. πŸ˜‚

I haven’t worked on Cookie Bear this past week so no update there but I will an update next week. 😊

Hope you all have a good end of the week. 😊

Hobby Weekend :)

Good evening πŸ™‚

How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was pretty good, quite busy hobby wise. πŸ™‚ As you can see I have finished the baby elephant stitch and made him into a card, I can’t believe how quickly I stitched him. How cute does he look?

Not only did I do some stitching over the weekend but I also did some baking! I had some left over ingredients so I decided to use them and make some yummy treats in the process. πŸ™‚ I made some flapjacks, brownies and coconut cupcake, they’re all super tasty! xD I shall be taking them to work tomorrow to get rid of the monday blues, thats if they make to work. πŸ˜‰

What did you all do this weekend? Did any of you play in the snow? We got snow but sadly not enough for it to settle.

I hope you all have a good remainder of the evening. πŸ™‚
