Giveaway: Ends Monday, August 30th

So I've kept it on the DL for a little bit but it's time....I've opened a second shop on Etsy, TesoroArt!!! I just added enough items to put my total items to a whopping 6 - yay! I have big hopes for this shop - I want to have photography prints, fine art paintings and drawings, and custom artwork. I am so so excited. 

In more Etsy news, I was so excited to see tonight that I had 2 items featured in Treasuries AND 1 of the items was from my second shop. How cool is that?

August Blog Carnival Post

What was your favorite BOOK, MOVIE or GETAWAY SPOT over the summer?

If only this question was about the Spring because I would have a lot to say (see the 20+ posts from April & May about our Europalooza). Oh well.

Sadly, I did not get a chance to read as much as I would have liked to this summer BUT we did see a tonnnn of movies: Grown ups, Eat Pray Love, Inception, Expendables, Eclipse, Despicable Me, The Other Guys, Salt. I think that's it. Whew, that's an embarrassing list.

Out of all of them, I'd have to say my favorite was Inception. I loved the concept and how it all played out. I love Ellen Paige and Leo de Cap so that helped. It was a tid bit long but I walked out of that movie not having any questions and just replaying it in my head - which never happens! I don't remember liking a movie that much since Avatar.

What was your favorite movie this summer?
