Has anyone else read any good books? Or seen any good movies? I really didn't watch nearly enough of them in March. It's embarrassing really.


  1. I'm re-reading Jane Eyre right now and totally loving it. One of my all-time faves is A Prayer for Owen good.

    Watch Michael Clayton...loved it! I also loved Nirgendwo in Afrika and Les Choristes, but you may have already seen them. I'm a little behind in the movie department.

    I love your goals...that's a fun thing to do!

  2. oh no, tizz, what's wrong with your health? :(

    by the way, 'no country for old men' is an excellent movie that you should see!

    and i like the idea of pointing out your goals each month! i think i'll do something similar on my blog :).

    take care, and thanks for adding me to your blogroll!

  3. Last night I watched "The Big Lebowski" and absolutely loved it! Soooo funny!!!

    Good luck with your April goals. I had posted my goals on the forum somewhere but I already forgot them lol.

  4. Hi Tizz,
    By accident I stumbled upon your blog, and I'm happy I did. I checked your profile and saw that we actually have a lot in common. I'm from the Netherlands as well, I'll be studying Illustration next year in Zwolle. I make jewelry, I crochet, knit, spin, sew (actually I do quite a lot). Nice to meet you :)
    Good luck with your april goals. (I hope to start selling on etsy someday as well..)
    Byebye, :)
    Dorien (a.k.a. Do)

  5. Congratulations having a great March month. I'm sorry to hear about your crazy health though. :( I hope you feel better!!!

    I can't believe you've read that many books! I'm so jealous. I'm not sure if I read ANY books in March. :(

  6. Yay for a great March! I hope your health improves :( and April turns out to be even better!!

    I am actually reading Eat, Pray, Love right now and loving it. I agree your list is spectacular compared to mine! I'm lucky to get one book read in a month, let alone 4 or 5!

  7. Congrats on your shop doing so well! I hope you surpass your April goals as well! I need to work on my promotion more, so I guess that's my main goal for April. Good luck!

  8. I am glad you are doing so well in Etsy. I love to read your blog, it inspires me to think of myself, my next goals. I have idea what to do for the next month, but I haven't got the chance to put them together by actions! I should write them down and check them from time to time to motivate myself to do better!!
    I think most importantly, I hope your health getting better and better!! :)


  9. Good job with your goals this month! We definitely need to talk books. I've been holding off on Eat, Pray, Love. Did you like it? I'm not sure what you've read other than these five. Let's see...Have you read Water for Elephants yet? I LOVED that one! And Moloka'i, What is the What, and The Road. There's a good variety there depending one what you like...

  10. Congrats on your shop doing so well.
    A good book I read just recently was Water for Elephants:A Novel.
    You've probably seen the movie Amelie but if not you should.
    Good luck on your April goals.

  11. I just went to an Elizbeth Gilbert event this evening...wonderful! Must be nice to be a goal setter, us fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants-gals (slackers) really look up to you folks!

  12. Congrats on your March sales. Cool! & I hope you achieve all of your April goals & that your health improves.

    PS - LOVED your 'Wall Feature' on Pulp Sushi's blog the other day. So incredibly cute :)

  13. congratulations! that's awesome... I wish I could reach those kind of sales levels!!

  14. Great goals! And congrats on surpassing your March goals as well...I'm impressed!!!

    BTW-LOVE reading your blog!!

  15. Yay for making your goals!

    Eat, Pray, Love is one of the books I am currently reading. What did you think of it?

  16. I'll definitely add Eat, Pray, Love to my list then! Oh, another one I just noticed on my bookshelf that I loved was Time Traveler's Wife. Did you read that one yet? I thought it was excellent!

  17. Tizzie! If you like modern fairytale types of movie you should watch Penelope! I'm sure you'll love it! And if you haven't already watch, you should definitely see Amelie (french movie)! Oh and The Darjeeling Limited!

    I love those kind of movies!
