Off the Blog:
Well things are back to “normal.” School is officially 3 weeks in, all back to school nights have been accomplished and now it’s time to enjoy the fall.
Happy October 1st!
I plan to go to a Octoberfest today in the next town over and also might put up my halloween decorations,
that is if I have finished my daughters room. I AM FINISHED! She below!
I took a big step two weeks ago, as most of you know I am the owner of Limabean Designs, I have been doing Graphic Design for 21 years and my full time job is a graphic designer. I started LD about 2 years ago and it’s been going ok, not a lot of business but enough to keep me happy because I love doing it. I was pushed to do this by an awesome friend/co-blogger because I has self esteem issues and she insisted that I should take the step and I did. Well, I took another step two weeks ago, I started a group and will now sell Pre-made Covers. I have worked so hard on this and this is also a reason I have not been around a lot. I started this 3 months ago and with everything that has happened I thought It would never be real but now it is and I am so excited. It’s exactly what I have always wanted to do. If you have a moment to help me out and could share my post on your page I would be forever grateful! You can find a link to the post, pinned to the top of the page, HERE. This will be the only time I ever ask and Thank you in advance! I totally understand if you can’t, there are a lot of designers in this world we all have our favorites! 🙂
As I said before I cleaned my daughters
nightmare room. I never saw such a mess and I honestly not only blame her but also myself for avoiding the room like the plague. This will, however, be the LAST time the room looks like this, I will not do this again!
Paper, tiny pieces of cut up paper EVERYWHERE! She loves to do crafts and make stuff for her Littlest Pet Shop characters but she doesn’t like to pick it up! Even after we tell her a million times she still doesnt do it. It’s out fault for not putting out foot down but now it ends. She is now aware that I will only put half of the room back. So she has to say goodbye to a lot of stuff. She might be a closet hoarder and I need to get that fixed before she moves out! We plan to donate a lot of stuff but I promised her I will get rid of it after a year, just incase she really wants something back. This applies to stuffed animals only.
The room now looks like this! 🙂 The images are in order of the ones above you it’s like a before and after! 🙂
I am proud of her, she got rid of a lot and now it’s completely clean. Lets hope she can keep it like this. My next project is to get a bookcase for the living room and work on saving up some money to get new furniture because I want to make the living room as cozy as possible. 🙂
Blogging News and Updates:
The dewey 24 hour readathon is on October 21st. I have already informed the family I plan to do nothing that day and I am not to be bothered. I might have an update or two on the blog but I might just stick to social media this time around and not clutter the blog with posts. I figured I would do a kick off, update, halfway point and end post. Maybe. I will see how it goes since I really want to just read the entire day and enjoy the posts on Twitter and Instagram, that is always my favorite part. Plus I love doing reading sprints so if you plan to join make sure to follow me on Twitter so we can do them together! 🙂
The Can you read a series in a Month Challenge sign ups will start this month. I have failed this challenge twice already but I am so going to do this! I have the perfect three books to read, I refuse to fail again…at a challenge, I MADE UP!!!! 🙂

Bookish News and What I grabbed
I am still reading these, it’s a little slow going with reading. Now that the room is complete and we are 3 weeks into the school year I can FINALLY get back to my normal reading schedule! 🙂 I didn’t grab anything which is really odd that I have gone so long without getting anything. Just not finding anything that really grabs me at the moment. I’ll do better next week! 😉
So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?
Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!
