Update on My Litsy Obsession (shhh . . . it may involve a giveaway)

Litsy main crop

In yesterday’s post, I wrote about my new bookish obsession—Litsy.

Well this morning, I just happened to notice that my Litsy stats showed I hit 500 followers and 1500 litfluence at the same time. I, of course, immediately took a screenshot because that’s what one does when one is a geek. Continue reading

My New Fave Bookish Addiction

If you hadn’t already figured it out, I love books. (See here, here, and here—there are more examples, but I didn’t feel like digging them up and I figured these were enough.)

I read a lot. And I always have at least one book on me at all times. Even when I’m not carrying a physical book, I have both the Kindle and Audible apps on my phone (although I prefer physical books).

Ever feel like this?

That was my day yesterday. Continue reading

Arts & Crafts Sunday

I love arts & crafts. Ever since childhood, I have always enjoyed doing crafty things—from popsicle stick houses and construction paper garland to cross-stitching and drawing. Arts have always been a large part of my life.

Even though I didn’t go into an art career, I still enjoy making arts & crafts. And Sundays tend to be my crafts day. Continue reading
