Amy, noun; A girl who loves words.

Some words are just special, I think. They can immediately conjure up images and feelings, the right words can create just the right atmosphere.
There are some words that I absolutely love, and you can create so many wonderful titles and phrases by just combining a few.

I did a few little squiggles the other day when I was working in the shop and feeling kinda bored.



They gave me the idea to do a post about words I love. I've found that if you're trying to come up with a title (like a username, for example) it can be really help to just jot down some words you really like and see what combinations you come up with. 
I had to make a twitter account to join Pinterest and I couldn't think of a username. I employed this method and came up with the name The Quiet Kingdom, which is probably my favourite username that I've ever used. :)

Some word I love;
Kingdom
Empire
Prince
Legend
Brave
Arrow
Courage
Quiet
Enchant / Enchanting / Enchanted / Enchantment
Kaleidoscope
Intertwined
Tangle / Tangled
Sparrow
Fox
Circus
Paper
Sleep  / Sleepy
Silent / Silence
Marionette
Carousel
Uncharted
Halcyon


And some titles using them;

The Tangled Empire
The paper circus
The Brave Sparrow 
Legend of the Sleepy Fox
Silent Circus
Kaleidoscope Heart (Which is the title of a song by Sara Bareilles)
An Uncharted Empire



Also a big, giant, Happy Birthday to my lovely sister Kathryn, who turns 19 today!
