High Summer Read-a-Thon Update (End of Day 2)

We're still trucking along with our concurrent read-a-thons. Today we're posting progress for the High Summer Read-a-Thon hosted by Seasons Reading.

I continue to totally suck it up and Darian is tromping all over me. Of course, he has the advantage of reading for between four and six hours while he hangs out at either my or Collin's office while we work. I miss that summer freedom.

In fact, he was doing so well with his reading while at my office today that he decided to do nothing but play with LEGOs when we got home. He bought himself a couple of new LEGO movie sets with his birthday money, so he was in the nice, cool basement building away for a few hours.

As for me, it was an interesting day. I had a small Facebook explosion with interest in my Custom Toddler Memory Quilt. I spent some time messaging some potential clients and giving out some quotes. I may have a few new projects line up here shortly. I'm very excited about that possibility. (Along those lines, if you're wanting something I made here on the blog, feel free to contact me. I am able to custom make just about everything you see on here and I would love to do it.) It would be lovely to be able to do more crafting at home.

This week though, I should probably focus a little more on my reading if I have any intention of making my goals. Ready to see my pathetic stats?

  1. How exciting to see your crafting business take off! I am the most uncrafty person, and I'm in awe of people who can create things :) And we're huge Lego fans over here-today's my husband's birthday and he's getting Legos, lol.That is THE gift that's given for birthdays and Christmas over here :D

    1. I'm really hoping that it keeps increasing. I love doing the crafts quite a bit. I was initially concerned that he might be growing out of the LEGO phase, but it seems to be alive and kicking. He spent a few days holed up in the basement last week.
