Sunday Post #57 – School, Work, and Jewelry Making

Sunday Post Meme

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, post a recap for the week before, showcase books and things we have received, etc.

wp-1484481563530.jpgI have been a bit quiet on here for the past two months. I got really busy during the final weeks of my semester last year. Between a long term substitute position and being an overloaded grad student, I couldn’t keep up with my blog for a few weeks. I spent most of my winter break just trying to catch up, but I know I have a ton to catch up on. It is my hope to start participating on the weekly posts I used to do. But we’ll see how quickly I pull each of those back.

I have been trying to raise money for my trip to Zimbabwe. I have never been one of those people who felt comfortable asking for money, so I decided I would try to earn it. I have been making jewelry and selling it to pay for my trip. I’ve only been trying to sell for a few weeks now, but I’ve already raised several hundred dollars towards my once in a lifetime trip. I just pushed past my 40% mark, but I still have a long way to go. I will just keep working towards that goal!

I will be eventually posting links to my pieces on here or at least on my notepad blog. But here’s a peak of some of my favorite pieces so far:

I hope you all are having a great weekend and that you have a great week!

All book covers are linked to my personal review of the book or it’s Goodreads or Amazon page.

About Kristine

As an aspiring author, avid bookworm, fitness fanatic and dedicated mother, there just aren't enough hours in the day. I write or post about things I'm passionate about and spend my time trying to make the most of every day. Life may be a tough journey, but I have my ruby red slippers and am content on skipping along this yellow brick road until the end of the line.

  1. Oh nice! These pieces are really pretty! Wishing you luck on making your goal!

    Nice new reads too! I LOVED A Darkness Absolute! Of course it is Kelley Armstrong and I pretty much love all her books! Hope you enjoy all the new reads!

  2. Welcome back! I think your jewelry is beautiful! I would definitely promote it on your blog to help your fundraising sales. I’m sure several bloggers would share on their social media.
