Booklr Questions – Do you watch any booktubers?

Do you watch any booktubers? I can honestly say that I don’t really watch any booktubers.  I know it’s a big thing, but I can’t seem to get interested in the idea. On occasion, someone I follow on Tumblr will post a video that I decide to watch because it’s from their YouTube channel and…

Booklr Questions – Do you like to write reviews?

Do you like to write reviews when you finish a book? I love writing reviews about the things I’ve read.  It’s a great way to tell more people that they should be reading the book too.  That’s the biggest reason, besides holding myself to my reading challenge, that I started my Book It posts this…

Waiting for 10AM

If you love quilting, or just hoarding fabric as much as I do, I’m sure you know about the Fat Quarter Shop.  Because of their amazing selection, it’s one of my favorite places to order fabric online. The best part is their Flash Sale page, which gets updated at 10AM every day.  That means I…

September has been a busy month, with a family reunion, and a wedding, but I seem to have gotten back into my reading groove. The 10 hours I spent in the car to and from the wedding might have had something to do with it.  And I’m also happy to have caught up with the…

Mike & Molly Got Married

Matt’s cousin Mike got married on Sept. 19th, so we headed up to Chicago for the wedding.  It was great to get to see everyone and welcome Molly into the family. I’m sure that she’ll fit right in. All of the Matt’s family made it up, so we made sure to take a photo with…

Bowden Exhibit at Dunn Art Gallery

One of my favorite jobs at work is taking photos of the exhibits at the Dunn Art Gallery.  The current exhibit is by artists Gene and Bill Bowden.  The interesting thing about exhibits with multiple artists, like this one, is how the different artists’ artwork interacts. Bill Bowden’s exhibits focus on pottery, but also include…
