A friend started the tagged book a day ahead of me and had mostly bad things to say about it, but I like it a lot so far. I think it‘s gonna be a harrowing and insightful read.

In a less harrowing mode, here‘s a preview of my Greek street with the third wall attached and the lights hooked up! It‘s hard to tell in the photo, but the mirror against the back wall means you can see all the bookstore‘s angles. #audiocrafting

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks So cute 💙🤍 5d
tpixie I loved the book! An amazing woman and story. It is a hard read at times so I can see why not everyone would like it. I‘m amazed by your workmanship!!! 5d
dabbe Amazing! 🤩🤩🤩 5d

Traci1 That is lovely. 5d

xicanti @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @dabbe @Traci1 @AlaMich it makes me happy every time I peer into it! 5d
xicanti @tpixie my friend‘s big complaint is that she finds Elizabeth unbelievably naive about her situation, which isn‘t an issue for me because I think it makes sense that someone living in 1860 wouldn‘t be as informed about wrongful asylum incarcerations and patriarchal abuses as we are here in 2024. She says she does find the book interesting in general, though. 5d
tpixie @xicanti 👍🏻 they were so much more isolated then- no TV, internet, radio… (edited) 5d

And now, a tiny bookstore for my little Greek street; which, I‘ve realized, has all its signage in either Turkish or English, so maybe it‘s not Greek at all? Or maybe it‘s on an island that caters mostly to Turkish- or English-speaking tourists?

Anyways, I‘m still here for the tagged book‘s stories and still all *DRAMATIC SIGH* over the huge number of similes and metaphors. #audiocrafting

I loved Zeyn Joukhadar‘s second novel very much, but their first is trying my patience with its purple prose. It‘s a good example of what I mean by performative purpleness; something that‘s less “how can I convey my characters‘ emotional reality?” and more “look at my ability to cram similes and metaphors into every nook and cranny.”

I‘ll stick with it because I do want the story. The historical bits are much less florid, too. #audiocrafting

Deblovestoread That is adorable! 💜 2w
xicanti @Deblovestoread thanks! It‘s the first half of a little Greek street. Tomorrow, I start the other side. 2w
CoffeeAndABook Great review!! And that little Greek street is delightful 👏🏼👏🏼 it makes me so happy to just look at it ☀️ is it a set? If so, where can it find it?? 1w

xicanti @CoffeeAndABook yes, it‘s a kit I found on Amazon! There are a whole bunch of them along the same lines, but with different themes. I‘ve already done the little French canal, and I hope to do the firefly forest and the undersea trolley someday. Litsy won‘t let me post the link, but if you search for “Spilay sea breeze book nook” it should come up. 1w
BookmarkTavern That looks so cute! Looks like it‘s right off of Santorini! 💙 1w
xicanti @BookmarkTavern I fell in love with that Santorini vibe the moment I saw it. 1w
CoffeeAndABook @xicanti Thank you so much! I found it 😊😊😊 1w

Great progress on the fair isle tank top. While listening to tagged book. I've never read this classic German children's story before.

I painted and decorated this nutcracker as a Christmas gift for my partner to go with his collection. I think it turned out great!

Needle felted the world‘s tiniest amanita while finishing up this audiobook. I enjoyed it a lot - the intertwining stories of all the characters came to a good ending, which I liked all the more because it wasn‘t “perfect.” Solid Pick. #audiocrafting

LeahBergen So cute! 2mo
Tamra Adorbs! 2mo
Aimeesue @LeahBergen @Tamra Thanks! Practice run for an ornament for my daughter the Park Ranger who loves all things woodsy and mushroomy 🍄 2mo

willaful Adorable! Do you mind if I share the photo with a friend? We both love tiny things.

(Coincidentally, I just bought my mom a set of tiny mushrooms, because she loves little toys.)

Aimeesue @willaful By all means, feel free to share it with your friend! Tiny things are so much better than regular sized things 🍄 2mo
willaful So much better! 2mo

#audiocrafting to a book set on Christmas Eve Eve, which has been a gritty, melancholy pleasure.

#Audiocrafting. Ye gods, I make a mess 😂 Enjoying the audiobook. Story‘s easy enough to follow on audio and the narration is well done.

LeahBergen Whatcha making? 3mo
Aimeesue @LeahBergen Labels for the jams I made as gifts (chocolate cherry, holiday jam (strawberry cranberry) and jalapeño) and a lid cover for the paint can (unused!) that I‘m gifting some of them in. Can‘s been sitting in my house for umpteen years awaiting its fate, and I‘ve decided it‘s time ? 3mo
LeahBergen Ooo, they sound like lovely gifts! 3mo
Aimeesue @LeahBergen I hope the recipients enjoy them! They‘re fun to make! 3mo

#audiocrafting I clearly have some Victorian holiday decoration sensibilities.
Also: I am now able to crack walnuts cleanly in half. Not sure when I‘ll ever use this talent again, but I‘m sure it will come in handy someday, hopefully in an Owen Meany sort of way. 😋

IndoorDame I‘m impressed! That kind of precision is tricky! 3mo
Ruthiella The EMT looked desperately around the crowd at the scene of the accident. “Does anyone know how to perfectly split a walnut shell? It‘s a matter of life or death!” A murmur coursed through the observers as they made way for a woman, a woman with courage in her eyes and a nutcracker gripped in her hand… (edited) 3mo
LeahBergen @Ruthiella 😆😆 3mo

Aimeesue @IndoorDame The trick is to use a knife and go in at the stem end. Then you just sort of wedge it open. Most of them crack pretty neatly that way! 3mo
Aimeesue @Ruthiella Now THAT made me laugh! 🌰 🤣 🤣🤣 3mo
mabell @Ruthiella 😂😂 3mo
mabell Those look lovely by the way! 3mo
Aimeesue @mabell Aww, thanks! They are super shiny! 3mo
