Feeling Crafty

Crafting is even more fun with you make something with children based on their favorite books-   http://www.virtualbookclubforkids.com/10-book-inspired-fall-crafts-and-activities/10-lois-ehlert-fall-crafts-and-activitiesAutumn is finally here!  Oh, my gosh, I don’t know about you all, but I was so sick of summer.  To start with, I’m an Arctic Princess.  I don’t like the heat.  You can keep your beaches and palm trees.  Seriously.  To make matters worse though, we always get lots of wildfires here in the Pacific Northwest.  Since my mommy still lives out in the boonies, that really freaks me out.  Thank God that’s all over with and leaves are turning yellow, orange, and red.  Time to get crafty!CpbwU-iUkAA9CBAI love the holiday season.  I’m a Crazy Christmas Person.  Makes me want to craft and bake winterize the chicken coop and decorate the house.  My favorite place to help with that is Joann Fabrics and Crafts.  My beautiful stepmother hooked me on this place back when she really got me going with sewing and such.  At one point, I lived in walking distance to Joann’s and I spent a lot of time, and money, there!  Helped that a bookstore was only a couple of doors down too.  I miss that.  Anyway, I suggest you pop over there and check ’em out-  http://www.joann.com/

Also, Joann’s YouTube Channel is fantastic too.  https://www.youtube.com/user/Joanndotcom


Now I must research.  Pioneer Woman has some great stuff out right now, gets me going with lots of ideas.  Happy Sunday, all.

Site Changes

Good morning!  Changes are coming.  The most important one is the address, since I’ve let the domain name go.  Please note the new one-


I haven’t decided yet what to do about this.  I’ll probably leave it this way for a while.  I don’t have any new books imminent, so I think it can wait.

Otherwise, the other changes will involve new topics and scheduling.  😉

World War Z

I wrote a great book review for this one by Max Brooks, but I lost it.  Sorry.  https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/world-war-z-max-brooks/1100054305?ean=9780307346612


Suffice it to say, this is a great book to read when watching the News makes you crazy.  When you’re finished, watch the movie version.  It bears little resemblance to the book, which is much better, of course.  However, Brad Pitt was awesome in this one and I was never a Brad Pitt fan before.  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0816711/

You should be thoroughly freaked out by that point.  So, get the ZOMBIE SURVIVAL GUIDE, which preceded WORLD WAR Z.


After you’ve dug your bunker, watch ZOMBIELAND to have a good laugh about it all.


Then, put all that aside and watch something which makes you happy, like MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL does for me.  ‘Cause you’re really gonna need it by then.


Much love.
