All of those proceeds go back into the mission work Carson and Holly are doing, specifically to a film project called Mbegu Films. The mission of Mbegu Films is to create short films that will be distributed in Tanzania for educational purposes, on topics such as malaria, AIDS & HIV, road safety, and cooking safety. Carson has created an inspiration video for Mbegu Films, which can be seen here. If you're interested in finding ways to help, be sure to visit them on Facebook and send them a message.
|My book wreath|
People asked over and over which book I used; I had to admit that I used a book I didn't love that I had received for free. Although I think it would be cool to make a wreath out of a book you love, I also can't imagine tearing apart a book I like a lot. So, for now, no deep meaning from the book wreaths I make. Just pages. Yard sale finds would be perfect, as would old books that are falling apart. My mom wants a children's book version for her classroom, so I'll be working on that next.

Even through all the excitement that the past few weeks have brought, I've still managed to find some reading time.
I'm currently reading an ARC for the paperback release of Ellen Meister's The Other Life, which is unique and interesting. The Office's Mindy Kaling's new book of humorous essays/ memoir stories was my latest purchase from Audible. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) is read by the author, and I can hardly turn it off when I start listening. So funny. Look for reviews of both of them coming soon, as well as a giveaway the first week of December for The Other Life.
