7 Quick Takes

ONE I was sick pretty much all of last week, so I didn't post any quick takes.  Being sick is never any fun, but neither is the aftermath.  All the dishes, laundry, cleaning, and everything else that has been abandoned are quite a bit overwhelming once you feel well enough to do more than simply exist.

TWO This article is fantastic.  

THREE Has anyone ever done any Kindle book lending?  When looking for an inexpensive way to get my hands on a book earlier this week I came across a couple of Facebook groups for such sharing and was very curious about it.

FOUR Earlier this week I picked up the Hunger Games.  Finally!  I had been waiting to get my hands on a copy for a while.  It was a super quick read and by Wednesday I couldn't wait to get the second book. (Hence my curiousness about Kindle lending!)  My library totally came through and I was able to pick up both Catching Fire and Mockingjay yesterday at the library.  I'm already more than three fourths of the way through Catching fire . . .

FIVE Here's a little shameless self-promotion!  I added some note cards to my Etsy shop this week.  I am going to add some Christmas cards shortly as well.  I'm also hoping to add a variety of crochet projects that are in my craft fair boxes.

I am open to custom orders!  Wouldn't you rather your money go to support a SAHM than some giant faceless corporation?

SIX I'm all signed up for another craft fair!  This one is the local one that I did pretty well at last year.  Hopefully it will be another good experience and not a bust like that other one.  

SEVEN Play Doh is fantastic, it gives Mommy more time to read!  


  1. oooo welcome to the Hunger Games craze!!! You'll have to post if you ever watch the movie. Some people hated it but I liked it!

    Off to go check out your shop now!!

    1. Oh. My. Goodness. I finished the trilogy this morning. I thought it was an awesome read. I couldn't put it down! I am super curious to watch the movie now; of which I've also heard mixed reviews... I'll just have to see it for myself!

  2. I also loved the Hunger Games, although the first was definitely my favorite. I am also the proud owner of the movie which you are welcome to borrow if you ever happen by my house... say this weekend??? :)

    1. I agree, the first was the best--but I really enjoyed the trilogy as a whole. I'd LOVE to borrow the movie! And I am hoping to see you this weekend! :-)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love reading each and every one!
