I spent most of last week working on some small projects. My afghans were not even touched last week. I really need to get working on them again. But, I did finish a felt project, my first cross-stitch project of the year, and a little crocheted mushroom.
I used to sell these mushrooms in my Etsy shop when I first started selling my handmade crafts. They were a huge hit, especially with cats! I can't remember why I stopped selling them, but I think I'll make some more and put them back in my shop. I am in the process of switching over to Storenvy instead of Etsy, though. In my opinion, Etsy is getting way too big. Anyone else feel the same way? My little shop is just getting lost in the mix. :(
I hate to admit it, but I haven't picked up my Nook since last year. I just really prefer reading an actual book, but when free ebooks are available you just can't say no!
Y'all probably already know this, but on the B&N Nook site if you search under "free" you can find all of the free ebooks available. Unfortunately, from what I could tell from my few minutes of searching, many are erotic fiction. That is really not my thing. Plus, it really concerns me just how easy it is for children to get their hands on these free books.
Anyway. . . I found a new YA book that I downloaded for free, UnEnchanted.
The overview on B&N was what got me hooked:
Mina Grime is unlucky, unpopular and uncoordinated, but it all changes when she learns she is descended from the Brothers Grimm and has inherited all of their fairytale unfinished business. To break the storybook curse on her family, Mina must relive all of the fairy tales..until the very Grimm end.
This is soooo my kind of book. I love twists on the classics, so I can't wait to start reading this book. As of Monday, it was still free if you have a Nook!
Linking to Yarn Along and WIP Wednesday.
