Blogging with Chelsea

Cheers, new friend, and welcome to blogging with Chelsea. Some of my many hobbies center around cocktails and cobwebs. I have been blogging for longer than I would care to admit. I have never been good at keeping a diary or journal, but blogging turned out to be up my alley. I’m still not one might call a frequent poster, but I get excited sharing my passions when creativity calls.

What’s with Halloween?

I discovered the Cryptkeeper’s Countdown to Halloween in 2010 thanks to Dave Lowe’s ParaAbnormal web comic. I was already sharing daily posts at this point and decided to join in the following year. My blogging motivation shot up. I love to celebrate all variety of holidays and so choose not to embrace Halloween all year round, but I sneak it in here and there through my love of spiders.

My family has always been big on Halloween. More specifically, my mother has always made it a big deal for my siblings and me. She was the first person to introduce us to the quirkiness of Elvira and her music, our first horror films (and horror comedies which still tend to be my preferred selection), and minding the details of Halloween decorating. Happily, the Halloween spirit has continued to haunt me all my life. These days, I do my best to work all the things that I grew up loving about Halloween into my celebrations with my two littles.

The Things I Dabble In

As for my interests, I always have the next big project or idea brewing before I even sit down to bring the first one to life. This mindset often gives me the feeling that I am running behind. However, I have really been trying to refocus on the joy on the process over the demand for content supply. I pulled this off when it came to Arachnid Astrology, Monster and Boo’s weekly October 2020 cosplays (Gravity Falls, Traditional Ghosts, Over the Garden Wall, & Hocus Pocus), and Be Kind to Spiders Week 2021. I just need to keep reminding myself of what my headspace was like when throwing those together for future projects.

It is impossible to ask me to narrow my interests down to just one topic. However, if you take a moment to gander around my blog, you’ll find I love dressing up, drinking tasty cocktails and wines, discovering fun places with fun cocktails and planning themed parties. As of late, I greatly enjoy spinning my fashion sense into my webdrobe.

I love to dabble in a little bit of everything. Sewing, singing, dancing, photography, videography, sketching, movie marathoning, I could go on! Honest truth? I love crafting, but I HATE documenting the process. When I am in the zone, I am so motivated to finish the product and loving that creativity flowing through me, that the documentation for it is often neglected.

Celebrating Little Moments

When I am not lost within my creative mind, I am sharing mine and my family’s adventures both big and small. We’ve done everything from simple home entertainment to convention weekends and fancy vacations. I wouldn’t say we travel as often as we might like, but we find lots of amazing places. We try to plan trips that don’t require us to pack much, because kids definitely don’t pair with packing light.

Meet Momvira with Her Littles

Speaking of my littles, I am a full-time mother to a six-year-old inquisitive minded monster and her three-year-old spook of a brother. These two keep my days rather full in the best of ways. Honestly? I would not change a single moment of it. I have to say I really love playing up the spooky mom aspect of motherhood, even giving them adorable nicknames that suit their personalities. Luckily for me, they seem to love the scares as much as I do. My son is obsessed with skeletons and my daughter adores helping me with decorating for all seasons.

A Toast!

I think this might be a little overwhelming summary of me. However, if you’ve made it this far, pour yourself a glass! It is time to toast along with me as I finish off this introduction. Thank you for reading all about me. I look forward to keeping you caught up in my cobwebs.
