Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 02/17/19

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Well guys, I can finally tell you about my side project that I've been working on since September. I've opened an Etsy shop selling original design, hand-drawn stickers. I don't have as many sets available as I'd like, but I basically only have an hour and a half a day (semi-uninterrupted) to work on drawing and each drawing takes several hours for me to complete. It may not be as efficient as creating them digitally but the hand-drawn look is what I'm going for. Anyway, I started working on the shop in September when fall was coming on so that's why pumpkins are one of my first completed sets even though it's February. So yeah, that's what I've been doing any spare moment I have. As far as books go, I'm deeply hooked into the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones, and this is the first week I've had a children's book to review.
