Summer lends so well to...

doing copious amounts of nothing on some days and reading all the books I've hoarded throughout the year on other days. I finished "The Birth House" and it was amazing. I read it so fast! I was literally consumed by the characters and the evolution of their lives. I'm always riveted by a well-written tale of a woman's right to choose what she wants for her body, birth and baby. Now, I'm almost done another book called The Knitting Circle which has engulfed me equally. It's a story of the healing journey of a mother who has lost her young daughter to meningitis and the relationships she develops throughout that process. Sounds dark and grim, but it is surprisingly light and easy to read. Trust me, I read 3/4 of the book in one day!

On a slightly more creative and lighthearted note, I received a few boxes of wonderful things yesterday that I invite any of you who need some new scrap supplies to c'mon over and take a look. I have a few Cricut blades and cutting mats, lots of Thickers (which I love) in black & white, and HEAPS of Maya Road chipboard and mini albums!!! You have GOT to see these little flower books, they are the cutest thing EVER!!! I also have a bunch of new ribbons also from Maya Road. There are still a few kits left from Daisy D's (family, mother and baby boy) and a few sampler packs of the Beacon Hill paper collection. Just drop me an email or give a call to make sure we're around to help ya (for those of you who don't know, the store is in my home and accessible by appointment)

Hope your week is rolling along easily and that you have a marvelous day!

Well, mine's currently on loan to a pal in Comox but when she's done, you can have a turn if you like...unless the wait is too much for ya, then you might need to go buy it!! LOL I got mine at Cole's in Driftwood Mall. It was soooooooooooo good!!! I finished The Knitting Circle today too. Such a lovely story. I almost cried near the end. You know a story is good when it brings you to tears!

Gotta love those books that invoke strong emotion! The Birth house and any books about Midwifery I find especially interesting as both of my kids were brought into the world by Midwives. There is a great book by Chris Bohjalian called "Midwives" (could have a more original title don't ya think) that I recommend.
