Using my #vintagebook for some #visiblemending. I love these boots so much! They've been with me all across Ireland and walked 80miles with me in Mexico. Any repairs I can do to keep them around is worth it!

Chipping away at this book. It is nothing short of amazing. Skillful storytelling, powerful moments, and subtle, deep messages that leave you thinking for days...and yes, it's a book about rabbits 😅🙃

One of the most beautiful #graphicnovels I've ever read! It's meant to be for kids, but I still loved it, and so did my 5-year-old! Fun story, great message, quirky and cute.

Ahhh, I'm so excited for my #fridaycomics read! I picked up a manga at Barnes and Noble earlier this week and have been saving it for a cozy Friday moment! Cozy Socks? ✔️ Cup of tea? ✔️ Soft couch? ✔️ I really like this series a lot and highly recommend it!

I'm pretty new to all this, so if I go about it the wrong way, please forgive me.
I'd like to start a #fridaycomics, where I read a comic book, comic strip, manga, etc on Friday. I think it's a perfect way to unwind after a busy, crazy week. If anyone is interested in joining me, tag #fridaycomics and share what you decided to read!

starlight97 Great idea! 2mo

I've made several dishes from this #cookbook-- all of them have been super delicious. The ingredients arent crazy expensive or even too hard to find. They really are easy to make. I highly recommend this dish and the yukisoba.

This is our second time making yogurt from this #cookcook and, of course, tastes amazing! Best homemade yogurt I've ever made! And, we made it from powdered milk, so that's really saying something! Next up will be homemade mustard!

I've been pondering this #bookjournal format for awhile and I'm ready to give it a try. The sections are To Remember, To Do, and Geeking Out! I read a lot of #nonfiction and have tried taking notes like I learned in school as well as marking passages-- neither methods are working for me. Hopefully this will!
If you decide to try this format, let me know how it goes! Do you have a note taking format that works well for you?

1. Not sure of it's made me cry the most, but the most recent is Little Women.
2. Fiction-- and that includes fantasy and paranormal. I like stories a lot and, after a long day, it's nice to kick back and unwind. I read a lot of non-fiction, bit it's not relaxing in the same way.
3. Well...I kind of mentioned 3 genres...so, here's 3 titles I really enjoyed...Little Women, The Powder Mage Trilogy, and The Rook

📚my books are organized by category
📚In my library! This picture isn't of all the shelves, but you get the idea (and it's messy because I'm in the middle of adding another bookcase and organizing)
📚 Physical copies with the occasional digital cookbook
that's on sale and I want to test. I actually buy about 98% of my books secondhand, so I don't have a preference between hard or soft cover

ellie_ember According to the book I'm using, I'm making a sample (?) Which seems to mean I'm making a bit of fabric for the sole purpose of learning how to make fabric 🙃😅 I'm planning on using this as a tea towel though. I think it would be fun to make Hogwarts House colored tea towels in upcoming projects! 5mo

I both really like this #diy book and find it slightly aggravating. The how-to in the beginning is super helpful and I do often turn to this book for #visiblemending and #upcycling instructions. However, the majority of the book is a photo gallery of work the author has done. While very inspiring, I would have enjoyed more stitch how-to's...or a slightly lower price tag 😅

julesG So relatable. Your trousers though: Chef's kiss! 5mo

As you can tell by the picture, my #cookbook has been lovingly used for years. I've many of the recipes and they have all turned out great and delicious--without a sugar crash afterwards 😅 also, although the treats are yummy, they I don't find them addictive like sugar packed treats, so it's easy to stop when I want to. The #cookies in the photo are the classic chocolate chip. I find they taste even better the next day (made with coconut sugar)
