GoodReads 2013 Reading Challenge - June Reading List

I'm still chugging along with my Goodreads reading challenge. Here is what I have read in the month of June.

Rainbow Rowell

Prince Caspian
(Chronicles of Narnia)
C.S. Lewis

Not it might not look like I've read that much this month. But I started reading the first book in the  Game of Thrones series on June 9. That book is a chunky, 850+ page book. And I'm 68% done with it. I'm going to try and finish it before the end of the month. But we will see.

I have read 22 books toward my goal of 30 books. I'm 73% done with my goal!

Hooray!!! Off to read!

Half done!!

I can officially say I'm half done with this book! Even though it's 720+ pages, it's worth the read. I plan on reading the rest of the series. Well written, and I love the characters. Do yourself a favor, and READ this book!

Another Etsy Update...




Wednesday, June 19, 2013


Here are some updates for you....


I'm 7 sales away from 900!!! I would love to make this goal by the end of the month. It's going to be close!


I'm 33% done with Game of Thrones. Very good so far.


I'm back to my pre-pregnancy weight! Let's see if I can lose about 10 more lbs! I can't believe how skinny I am even after having 2 kids. Well... skinny isn't the right word. I say skinny because I've never been at this weight in my entire adult life. 

That is all.

Currently reading...

I've decided to jump on the band wagon and start to read the game of thrones series. So far, so good. But man, are these books LONG. Also, I feel like I need to take notes. There are so many characters to keep straight. But I'm sure it will be worth the read. 

After I'm done reading this book, I will start watching the series on HBO. Or shall I say, rent the discs from Netflix.

So far I'm 6% done. I really wish the version I bought for my kindle had page numbers.

Current Project...

Since my etsy shop has been slow this year, I've decided to make some blankets for charity. I will be donating some blankets to the Project Linus foundation in my area. It feels good to use my crafty skills for those that are in need. Plus, I have WAY too many blankets in my house, and I have run out of people to make them for gifts. So this is a win-win situation. Here are a couple pictures of some blankets that I have finished/ are working on. 

The blue blanket is the one I'm working on now. I'm over half done. I would love to finish it this weekend. The green on is done and ready to go! I would like to make one more blanket before I ship it to it's destination!

Conversations with Chloe...

Here is a conversation I had with my 2 year old daughter this morning.

Chloe: "Go to post office?"

Me: "Nope, Not today."

Chloe: "Mommy didn't sell anything."

This was so funny and sad at the same time.

Can I reach 900 sales by the end of the month??? I hope the answer is YES! 

Also, I love return buyers. They make me soooo happy.
