News Update

Hello everyone! I have been ridiculously busy lately! I guess that's a good thing, but unfortunately the first thing I have to give up when I'm busy is my blog. :( Poor blog, it's been lonely without me. ;)

What have I been up to? Well aside from chasing my kids around for longer periods of time (they just stopped taking naps) and trying to get my house to stay clean for longer then two minutes, I've also been getting ready for a craft show I'm doing this Saturday! More on that after today's mini treasury.

What is today's mini treasury you ask? Well it oddly enough is themed after the second thing that's been keeping me insanely busy for the last couple of weeks: NaNoWriMo. For those of you that don't know, November is National Novel Writing Month. In honor of this occasion, thousands of writers across the country participate in an event called NaNoWriMo. It is a thirty day event, where in you attempt to write a 50,000 word novel, starting on Nov. 1 and ending on Nov. 30.

Yes that does sound crazy, I'm glad you agree. :) However be that as it may, for some reason, this year I decided it would be a fun idea to try it. Now I'm not a writer, in that I've never written or attempted to write a book, but I had a crazy dream that I just had to write down, and it has so far turned into a 30,000 word novel! As you may have noticed from reading this blog, my spelling and grammar leave something to be desired, but my husband has agreed to proofread it when I'm done writing, and this has been way more fun then I could have imagined! I'm not sure if I'm comfortable with telling you what I'm writing yet, but if you guys are interested, I'll tell you about it when it's finished. :)

Anyway, here is today's treasury: a homage to National Novel Writing Month! Enjoy! :)

And of course, please check out the big treasury for even more writing inspired goodness! :)

Now about the craft show I mentioned earlier. It is going to be at St. Gregory the Great School in Hamilton Square, NJ. It runs from 9am to 3pm. Here's a map, if you're not sure where it is.

I'm not sure where my table is going to be yet, but I'll know tonight and post an update at the bottom of this post when I find out. And since I love you all so much, I'll even give you a coupon to print out and bring with you to the show! Just click on the picture to open it in a new window. :)

Alright, that's all for now! I promise I'll start posting more regularly starting next week. Hope you all have a great weekend! :)


  1. I hear you about slowing down on blog posts. Hope the craft show goes well and the novel is a huge success with movie rights that keep your great grand kids in new socks for years to come.

  2. Good Luck at the craft show!

    Love the typewriter T-shirt!! Way cool!!

    Happy Weekend!

  3. Thanks everybody! The craft show went pretty well! :)

    KClark Photography - lol Thanks! I guess even if it ends up being terrible, at least I'm having fun. ;)

    Meeling - Isn't that shirt cool? They have a lot more neat ones too! :)
