j-flamingo reflections

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

Readathon Cheering: Give Me a B - O - O - K!

Today, I'll be cheerleading those 24 hr. readers on while they read, read, read. I'm looking forward to this opportunity to cheer on their love of reading.
I'm also excited to hear about what they are reading(more for my TBR list), read cool book blogs (purely selfish reason to cheer) and see photo's about their snacks(yummy!) and other things around them (so interesting).

Go, Go, Go Readers! Whip out those books and read!

I'll be thinking of you all day (I really, really mean that) as I continue doing all those busy things that I've committed to today as well. Hard to believe, you're 11 hrs. in and I'm just getting this down (sorry I'm slow about this) since I've been up since about 7 a.m. (like all of you) trying to do just that and be a part of it all. I love Readathon's!

Anyway, here's a few of the things I've done today while you've been reading away:

Sent my son on a 5 mile hike early this morning.

Taught a card making class plus some adorable tags at the Super Saturday craft day at our church.

Made Potato Cheese Soup for the luncheon at Super Sat.

Drove my oldest daughter to a Service Project.

Finished shopping to get my daughter ready for Science Camp on Mon.

Pumpkin Carving with my children.

Now, off to craft some more.

I'd like to make some bookish papercraft things as well today like a bookmark or two.

I'll also make sure to read a few chapters of a book today as well.

That's why I can only cheer you on. Oh, how I'd love to be reading with you. Someday, I will.

About this blog

Welcome Readers~to my blog! A tiny extension of myself and my life. Here, I'll share this journey through my top passions in my life - reading, writing, and creating. You can expect to read poetry, view my papercrafts and read design related posts. Every once in a while, I hope you'll grasp an honest feel of my heart. If you haven't noticed, I love flamingos! I think they are beautiful birds. *Thanks for your attention.*
She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
