Crafting and Reading!

Well, mainly crafting; I don’t count all the Nancy Drew books I have been going through as heavy reading, as I can read one in a couple hours.

New Christmas ornaments are going into my store; slowly but surely. Yes: I said the naughty “C” word, and believe-you-me, I could wait about 11 1/2 more months for it to get here if it were up to me.

I will have some baby onesies (bookish-themed, of course), in the next couple of days, as well as personalized book boxes for anniversaries and other gift ideas.

If I had more patience with my Cricut machine, I would be a lot farther along than I am. Luckily, my 17 year old is awesome at weeding vinyl letters πŸ˜‰Β  I am also working on some more book bags, with a variety of images available.

There is not much in it at the moment, but you can find my Etsy store here:Β Books and Opinions Etsy Store

What is keeping you from reading at the moment?

    Is Nancy Drew as much fun as it seemed as a child. I’ve been contemplating rereading them.

      I love them, and I never read them growing up! I am in book 26. I was too busy reading Encyclopedia Brown as well as The Three Investigators!

    Is there any way to order by snail mail. Like when you get my check you would send me my order? We don’t order by credit card on line. Do you have a paper catalog? If so, send to me at 4870 Somerset Court, Alvin, Tex 77511. As you can tell, I’ve never heard of Etsy.

    I used to binge read Nancy Drew growing up. And Hardy Boys too πŸ™‚ What’s keeping me away from reading right now is creating new comic book covers for my old, almost falling apart comics.

    • Angela November 16, 2018 / 6:35 am

      New covers is a brilliant idea! My youngest likes to draw anime and people and animals. I never read Nancy Drew or the Hardy Boys growing up, but I am loving them now. I can read two or three on a good day when my cats are occupied and my kids are playing Fortnite! Thanks for sharing!
