Monday Muse (11)

Hey fam! Happy Monday! Or something - are Mondays ever really happy? Let's change that! Today I'm sharing another Monday Muse post, which features my hobbies other than reading.

I have slowly colored another page in my 17-18 Johanna Basford planner! Here it is:

I love how this one turned out, except the shed. I ran out of the light brown. Oh well! The yellow leaves look fantastic.

I am suuuuuper excited about this castle. I love orchid and I think the castle will end up being really pretty!

SO you may recall, in Monday Muse #9, that I was planning to dress up as Dorothy for Halloween. My plan was to make the outfit. My mom sewed the dress from the pattern I showed in Monday Muse #9, and I painted a pair of shoes with red glitter, and voila!

(I think I looked pretty good! My mom did great with the dress. Check out my personal Instagram for more pictures.)

Now that Halloween is over, I am in full Christmas mode. Don't get me wrong - I LOVE Thanksgiving. And Black Friday. And Cyber Monday. But I adore Christmas and the holly jolly holiday feeling that the holidays bring. So I'm ready!

On that note, I encourage anyone who is interested and committed to participate in #TBTBSanta! This year will be the 5th year I've participated. I love sending a box of personalized goodies to another participant. It's very fun and getting a package is great too!

In other semi-bookish news, Read Me Romance has launched and the first audiobook novella will be available this week! Subscribe to the podcast and you'll get the novella in chunks throughout the week, with a HEA on Friday. Repeat next week!

AND for romance fans, one of my favorite historical romance novels ever is on sale for $1.99!

That's it for now! Tomorrow is Election Day in the USA so GO VOTE if you can!

    Your Halloween costume looks great! I am trying to do NaNoWriMo so I don't know how much time I will have to listen to that new podcast but I have subscribed so hopefully I will listen when I have some free time.

  2. It's been a long time since I've done any coloring.
