Many thanks to Harper Teen, Andye, and Sarah!! 

I know, I know. I haven't been around. I said I was getting back into the hang of blogging, but then I got this HUGE order (12 totes) from author Nikki Kelly for her upcoming book Lailah, and then I did three others this week. That's 15 totes!! Crazy, huh? I'm exhausted. I haven't been able to even read this week, because all I have done is painted, but I got them all finished. I'll have a post up on Tuesday, showcasing all my recent totes so be sure to stop by then.

This is basically a two week update. Over the past two weeks, if you hadn't already guessed, I've basically been painting my life away. Paint, paint, paint. Don't get me wrong, I totally love it!! I am just struggling a bit to find time to do other things as well, on top of my normal job too! I'm trying to think of some exciting things that have happened though. Hmm. 

Oh! I did the ALS Challenge. In a Dunk Tank. On our local news station. It. Was. AWESOME. And unsurpisingly, freezing! 

I was also a Guest Judge for Adventures in YA Publishing's #PitchPlus5 contest! You can read all about that here!

I watched The Amazing Spiderman 2 and cried at the end. WTF. 

I am nearly halfway to my goal for BEA15! Whaaaat.

Ooh! I was also featured in the Heir of Fire Fan Art Trailer, er..well, Dixie, my dog, was! But now, because they chose us as one of the winners, we get our names in the Acknowledgements of the next book, AND Signed copies of all the books in the series! O.o I screamed when I found out they picked us. 

Watch it below! :) Just look for the doggy reading! 

Other than that, I cannot think of anything else happening at the moment. This weekend, I've told myself no painting totes, no matter what, so I can catch up on the blog and my reading in between breaks at work. So far, it's worked! Hopefully everyone is enjoying their Labor Day weekend. Be safe! 

That's it for me!
Did you get anything amazeballs this week?
Link me up so I can come see! :)
