TeaChat: I Opened a Bookish Sticker Etsy Shop!


For those of you who are new around here, TeaChats are a monthly post that I do in which I pretend that you and I are going out and grabbing a cup of tea (or coffee or wine) and we’re chatting about what we’ve been up to lately.

Let’s chat!

It has been an exciting past couple of weeks!

For my birthday/Mother’s Day I got a Cricut and my dreams of opening a sticker shop came true!

I’ve always loved designing Fandom items and the ability to turn them into stickers that I get to make myself (while listening to audiobooks) has been SO MUCH FUN!

You can check out my Etsy Shop here!

Here are some of the bookish/fandom stickers I have in my shop!

At Present I Am…

Reading

Black Sheep

Black Sheep by Tabatha Vargo

I’m spending the week reading all the KU books that I have downloaded on my Kindle to clear it out for new ones and I’ve read SO MANY GREAT KU BOOKS! I can’t wait to share them all with you.

This is just one of them. It’s a SUPER dark (lots of trigger warnings) forbidden romance filled with so much longing and angst and slow-burn goodness!

 

Watching

I WILL be watching Hamilton tomorrow!!!!

 

Consuming

I randomly put together this recipe for AIP Salsbury Meatballs that is SO delicious! I don’t measure anything, but I’ll try to give approximate measurements.

I love to make this with mashed sweet potatoes with avocado oil, salt, garlic powder, and onion powder and roasted veggies.

Ingredients

  • 1lb local, organic ground beef
  • 1/4 cup of Nutritional Yeast
  • 3 tablespoons of Coconut Aminos
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Chives
  • Tiny pinch of dried basil
  • 2-3 cups of homemade organic bone broth
  • 2 packages organic sliced baby portabello mushrooms
  • 1 whole sweet onion
  • 4 cloves of minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Arrowroot powder (enough to thicken)

Mix in nutritional yeast, coconut aminos, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, chives, and basil into the ground beef and form meatballs. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a pot. Add meatballs to pot and brown. Add in the onion and garlic to the pan until tender. Add mushrooms and heat through until tender. Add bone broth. Thicken with arrowroot powder. Serve over garlic mashed sweet potatoes and add roasted veggies as a side!

 

Listening to

The Hamilton Soundtrack on repeat anytime I’m not listening to an audiobook!

 

Obsessing over

I know, I’m a broken record.

Hamilton.

 

What’s Next

Would you kill me if I said Hamilton? LOL!

I’ll be adding new products to my Etsy shop and perfecting things there. I’m working from home for the foreseeable future – until COVID-19 isn’t as scary.

I am so eternally grateful that I work somewhere where this is possible, especially since both myself and my husband are considered high risk.

Other than that? No plans. I don’t ever really leave my house. I go to the Post Office during off-hours (I’m literally the only person there aside from the two people working) so I can check my PO box and buy stamps. I wear a mask and the workers are behind plastic.

I also occasionally run into the library and pick up books I have on hold and do self-checkout while wearing a mask and gloves.

I sometimes go to Target or Walmart, but I don’t leave my car. I have been a big fan of Drive Up!

I’m hosting a #RomanceBooktubers Readalong Live on my channel on Tuesday (July 7) at 7:30pm EST. Me and my fellow Romance Booktubers are rotating channels to host these weekly! Come and read with us for 40 mins, then chat about what we read! You can read however you feel comfortable – if you’re listening to audio, maybe join us in knitting/crocheting/stitching/crafting and tell us about your book and your project! Any and all types of reading welcome!

I’m also hosting a Romance Booktuber Ask Us Anything liveshow with a bunch of awesome Romance Booktubers where we will all be answering and asking questions both bookish and non-bookish on July 23 at 7:30pm EST.

 

Tell me… what have you been up to lately? What’s up next?

  1. You already know I love your stickers. I want to get more but I need to figure out what to do with the ones I already got lol. I watched Hamilton this morning and loved it. Now I want to watch it over and over again. I’m currently behind on 2 buddy reads which is kind of stressing me out a little and making me feel bad and I think I’m going to be sent 2 different books to beta read for authors so yeah busy busy busy here.

      1. I want to watch it again so bad but so far I have held back. I want to to get a little caught up before I watch it again.

        Normally it doesn’t get to me but I started falling behind and everything got to where I was trying to do it all at once so it was bound to get to me eventually.
