SUNDAY FUNDAY on MONDAY!

The lovely Cristina over at Girl in the Pages started Sunday Funday as a way to recap the bookish (and not-so-bookish) things that have happened that week.

So yeah. I’m really bad at doing these on Sunday, as I’m sure you’ve all become aware of. Sundays are pretty much the only day when I just relax and by the time I think about it, it’s too late to do this post or I’m just too lazy to turn my computer on. Oh well.

Today’s Sunday Funday on Monday is all about crafts, pretty much. Saturday I finished making up a bunch of these mustache pillows, which I sell, for someone who is giving them away as Christmas presents. I’ve never done ones with such pretty colors (usually red and green mustaches are ordered), so I had to take a rainbow picture!

Yesterday, Sunday, I made a blanket and a bracelet, both of which I think turned out pretty well. What do you think? 🙂

 

Other than that, I didn’t do much but read and work this week.

Books read: I finished and reviewed Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld and started Stephen Graham Jones’ Floating Boy and the Girl Who Couldn’t Fly, which is interesting so far. I plan on finishing and reviewing that one later today. I also finished the audiobook of Doll Bones by Holly Black, which was pretty cool. I plan on reviewing that one soon.

TBR: I’ve been adding a ton of 2015 books to my TBR over on Goodreads. I also got approved for an excerpt of V.E. Schwab’s A Darker Shade of Magic and Josh Sundquist’s We Should Hang Out Sometime so I’m looking forward to digging into those soon. I also had a really awesome comic book haul yesterday with a bunch of new series that look awesome.

Non-bookish things I’m excited about:

I’ll be going to New Orleans for the first time this weekend to visit my friend Annette (aka Booknerderie). Yes, for the first time. I live in MS and I’ve never been to New Orleans. I’ll be remedying that though! Yay!

In less than two weeks I’ll be seeing The 1975 for the first time with my friend Georgie! Seriously looking forward to this show!

What about you? Did you make anything fun this week? Read some good books? Tell me about your week!

Seize the Tuesday [4] – Getting crafty

seizethetuesdaybanner_zpsf766e20a

Seize the Tuesday is a book blogger meme created by Adi Alsaid and the Let’s Get Lost Buddies Street Team, to share stories about how we’ve seized the Tuesday, with a special focus on the particular book we’re reading. We’ll share our posts online with the hashtag:#LetsAllGetLost.The idea is to share little ways in which you may have embraced Bree’s motto of seizing the Tuesday. To relate it to books, you can talk about what book you’re reading, and how you stole some moments from the day to enjoy reading. It doesn’t have to be about reading, but we all know that a well-read day is a day seized. The idea is not just to help spread the word on LGL, but also to remind people to live fully, even/especially if that means spending a part of your reading.

You ever have one of those days when you have a lot you should be doing but you don’t want to do any of it so you don’t? Yeah, I had one of those days. Instead of doing some things I probably should have done, I got crafty. I haven’t really done any artsy stuff recently and that’s what I needed to do today. So I made a scarf, decorated a mug for a friend, and drew on a bowl for myself. Want to see?

The scarf and bowl are for me, but the mug is for a friend of mine. I am not a fan of whiskey. What do you think of what I made?

I had a lot of fun! It was a nice, relaxing day. I kind of regret it now because I might be stressed for the rest of the week trying to do stuff I should’ve done today before and after work, but you know what? I seized the Tuesday and it was wonderful.

Hope you had a great Tuesday too!
