Hello...Are You Still There?

Hey everyone!  I hope all of you in the US are staying warm. Has it really been that long since I have been here?  My last post was November 7, 2014.  I have been crazy busy with the Storybook Felts side of things.  If you would like to see what I have been up to please visit the Storybook Felts blog.  I would love for you to follow me there. Not sure how much I will be posting here other than reviews and such.  Here is a little peek at some of the items I have been working on though.

These are all new Book Buddies animal bookmarks. 

With Easter coming up these would make great basket stuffers! You can find the finished items as well as the patterns in the Storybook Felts Shops. To see what else I have been working on please stop by Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook.  I would love for you to follow me at all these places also.

At Bluebonnet Lake - Book Review.

I received this book from the Revell book reviewer program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

From the back cover...

Her life is set to warp speed. His is slowing to a crawl.
But love has its own timing.

Marketing maven Kate Sherwood's wold is fast-paced, challenging, and always changing. The last thing she wants to do is grind to a halt at Rainbow's End, a dilapidated resort in the Texas Hill Country.  Still, she cannot deny her ailing grandmother's request to visit the place where she and her deceased husband spent on glorious week fifty years ago. There, Kate meets Greg, who appears to be the resort's unassuming handyman.  But there's more to Greg than meets the eye-billions more, in fact.

Kate isn't looking for romance, but she can't deny the sparks of attraction that fly every time she and Greg are together. Could there be a future there? Or will Kate's long-sought promotion take her back to the big city?

Amanda Cabot invites you to step into a place away from the pressures of the day. You might be surprised by what you find at Rainbow's End.
At Bluebonnet Lake is the first book in Amanda Cabot's Texas Crossroads series.  

I fell in love with this book and its character right away.  There is more than one romance going on in this book.  Kate's grandmother wanted to go back to Rainbow's End one more time but never imagined meeting a wonderful man while she is there. The book is written from not only Kate's perspective but Greg's, Sally's -Kate's grandmother, and Roy's as well. She and Kate also did not imagine it would look as rundown as it does.  It is no longer the Christian family getaway that it once was and the brochure didn't quite depict it correctly either.

Rainbow's End is the kind of place that my family would love to visit.  Because Rainbow's End is located just outside a small town named Dupree in the Texas Hill Country, there is no cell service. There are also no televisions or phones in the cabins, and no Wi-Fi.  Dupree is one of those small towns where everyone knows everyone else and has fantastic little shops and a cafe.

Kate and Greg both find themselves falling in love with Rainbow's End and wanting to do something to bring it back to life.  Neither of them can imagine doing it alone however. Things happen along the way that force them to change the way they think and feel about the life they think they want.  Both come to realize that God's idea for their life sometimes differs from their own. 

I can't wait for the next book to come out in Spring of 2015 so I can find out what happens to Rainbow's End and it's staff, including Carmen-the cook, and the KOB trio.

Back For Now

Hello everyone! I can't believe how long I have been away.  I did post a book review this month but that has been it.  A lot has happened since I last posted.  Mr. Boo broke his arm AGAIN.  Same arm different place. We were camping the week before school started and we had just bought him a new foot powered Razor scooter.  He was scooting along when all of a sudden he went down.  He hit his arm and leg on the pavement.  Then the bad part happened...the scooter came down and hit his arm and snap.

He had to have another long arm cast.

Of course he had to start school with a cast one his arm.  Here are Mr.Boo and Lulu on their first day back.  Boo is now a 4th Grader and Lulu...GULP...started high school this year in the 10th grade.

He now has a short arm cast on that will hopefully come off this Wednesday.

I have also been working on loads of new things for the Storybook Felts Etsy shop. You can stop by the Storybook Felts blog everyday this week for a peek at all the new items that have been added.
Here is a little peek at just one of the new items.

 I have also been busy changing things up in the shop.  Taking new pictures to update the items and combining some of the items to make them easier to list and order.  

I'm not sure when I will be back with Monday Funday. Right now I am trying to focus all my time on Storybook Felts.  I will be back off and on with updates and book reviews and such. I would love for you to follow my Storybook Felts blog so that we can keep in touch. Come visit me on Facebook as Storybook Felts.  While you are there, stop by my Storybook Felts Facebook Page and give me a like. Storybook Felts is also in Intagram.
