  1. I think you’re doing amazingly well, Michelle! And I have to tell you that I’m really envious of your NG rating! 😉 I think your personal goals will come. Especially with summer coming…the school year makes it hard to get a lot accomplished because school/kids take time. 😉 Hopefully you and your daughter will do some great crafts over the summer! Keep up the great work, my dear!

  2. Love how you set out your post, very clear. Need to re-organise mine! Oh well the crafts will fall into place at some point!

    • Lol, I have been trying to read as many Netgalley as I can. Also avoiding grabbing any but I’m sure that will change when the next season books are up. 🙂
