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!
