****************************************************

All set and ready to go except for number 7. For the Hooked on Books Fall read a thon my theme is series. So I can start or continue any one of the books on my list. 🙂

As you can see Ive already completed #2 🙂 It was a great little intro to Ella and Micha. ❤

I’m going to start reading The Drowned girls this weekend. Its a thick book. 524 pages. I borrowed it from the library and its due on the 15th but I can renew it 2 more times.. I think thats an extra month . It wont take me that long to read. It is on kindle unlimited, along with the other two books. I can’t get The Lullaby Girls from the library since they don’t have it so my free kindle unlimited subscription this month will come in handy 🙂

I have until December 31 to complete this challenge .

If you’ve read any of these books please let me know.

Autumn Reading List

Confession: Goodreads is like porn to me …( I dont watch porn , I’m just saying..lol ) . Books have been my new love. I still love yarn, I would rather read more. I will post new projects soon.

I am in a group called Hooked On Books on Goodreads. Its mainly read a thon challenges, 24 hr, weekend, week long and seasonal. Summer has ended ( last week ) and I have already finished one book in to my Autumn reading list.

I finished the summer with 29 books 🙂 Gotta love the library.  I fell in love with so many books and so many characters. More on them later so I can gather my thoughts. I am still a wreck from reading Me before You! ( I never cried so much!!)

On with the list… A good chunk of my summer reads were suspense/thriller. So this season I want books that are  light, with some humor and romance that wont make me cry for 200 pages. (Yup, thats what Me before You did to me…lol)

Crochet A Longs, Good Ideas, Sharing my life

25 in five : Yarn addition

I recently saw a reading challenge called #25infive on instagram. The participants read what they can for 25 hours in 5 days.

My yarn obsessed brain got to thinking about how I can use this with my yarn balls. I still have a ton. Here is what I was thinking , use 25 balls of yarn , any size, any weight, in 5 days. Make whatever I want.

Its Friday so I will take the weekend to look through my stash and pick my 25 and post again on monday, day 1.

This could be a fun monthly crochet/knit/loom a long 🙂

If you play along , leave your post link in the comments.

Off Topic, Sharing my life

Blogging about something new

I usually stare at my computer screen hoping that words will just magically appear.  Sometimes only half a thought comes out and the post is left in my drafts for eternity .

I want to blog about something other than crochet, knitting, any thing yarn related. But i need a little push, a topic to talk about. nothing serious like politics or religion, or parenting, ( since I dont have kids) . And my life is pretty boring. I can probably fill a tweet more than a blog post.

Today I remembered Blogher and the writing prompts they use to have. I use to post when they did their #NaBloPoMo .The last one was September 2016. It seems they are more occupied with the conferences. But their prompts are still around.

Anyway a lot of the prompts “spoke to me” lol . So if you see a post about the one appliance I cant live with out.. Dont worry, its just me and I have not lost my mind 🙂

The first theme I may tackle is their august prompts, TALES.

Sharing my life

Thanks Etsy?

So yesterday Etsy suspended my shop over $11. Its the end of the month and I am broke baby. My shop is my only income. My fiance has a job but we live just about pay check to pay check. I know what you are thinking… ‘its only $11 , anyone can afford $11. ‘

Yeah I could pay it but this is my shop’s downtime. During this time ( March through August ) I am collecting $$ from Craftsy from the few patterns I have there. ( btw , it isnt much). So instead of running up another bill for relisting fees , I am taking a break from etsy. Regroup and focus on personal projects.

Is etsy the only place that has relisting fees? Last time I was on Artfire they only took their cut from items you sold. I just checked and its subscription based now.  It ranges from  $4.95 a month to $40. Oi! i cant win.

Ive been thinking about this for along time… I need to make new patterns. I WANT to make new patterns. I haven’t yet because when I think of something someone already did it, or close to it.

So maybe this suspension is a good thing ( not money wise) but time wise. There is so much I can do now with out having to make someones order or make new items for my shop. I feel free…lol

Things I can do now…

Make more soap. so much fun.

Read more. I committed to reading 50 books this year on Goodreads.  I’ve read one.

De-clutter my craft area.

Finish some personal projects.. Grease C2C blanket, FRIENDS C2C blanket, and the Sophie blanket.

Design some new patterns.

Don’t worry people I will pay my bill within a few weeks. I can feel the judgement…. “just pay the bill. Etsy is owed that money. ” … blah blah…lol They over price for everything..lol
