Oh boy, you guys are not quite ready for this week’s wrap. Mostly because it has fun announcements that I’ve been sitting on FOREVER. But you can try to be ready! And even better, you can just charge ahead and find out what’s up!
Life Beyond the Blog
So, let’s do the biggest news first, since I can’t sit on this any longer: THE WORDS GREMLIN IS MOVING!
Not today, not next week, but soon! Self-hosting is on the horizon, and with that, a brand new blog design, and a new name! I’ll post more specifics once I have further news, and once the turn-over is at hand, but it’s happening! We’re going self-hosted, we’re rebranding, and it’s going to be an absolute blast! I’m so excited for this, and I hope you’ll be along to share the journey. ❤️
And in equally big news, as part of the shift to self-hosting and the rebranding, I’ll be opening an Etsy store! At the moment, the plan is to sell booksleeves and bookmarks, something I’ve recently learned how to do and have taken SO MUCH JOY in doing. Who knew I’d take to sewing this well? I mean, look how cute the sleeve I made for myself is!
But for real, watch this space for the self-hosting announcement, because details about the Etsy store will go up in that post, particularly details like links, prices, and available products. (Spoiler: I have some GREAT fabrics for sleeves…which are lots of adorable flannels, because scratchy and not-soft booksleeve drive me bonkers.)
I’ve been sitting on this info for what feels like A THOUSAND YEARS, and it’s so nice to be able to finally explain it all! Again, I really hope you’ll stick around for the ride, because I think it’s going to be an incredible experience. ❤️

The Week Ahead
Hopefully, next week will be all about putting together more sleeves (seriously, I find a lot of peace in sewing these things), and about prepping for the blog move. Somewhere in there, I’ll also be reading, since I want to have as much time as possible in October to devote to NaNoWriMo prep (IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR!!), and hopefully, I’ll also get a chance to play Untitled Goose Game. Which is a delightful looking game where it is a lovely morning in the village, and you are a horrible goose.
Altogether, it’s looking like a busy week, but in a good way. Can’t wait to see it unfold!
So, that’s it for this week, and I’ll see you around in the week to come! ❤️
