Good things come to those who wait...

I was beginning to think I would never get to read Francesca Lia Block's new book Quakeland, but Friday night I received a call from Books-a-Million saying my order had come in. I really wasn't thinking they'd get it. I don't know why. The unseen forces of the universe tend to keep FLB's stuff away from me for long periods of time. ANYwhichway, I started jumping up and down while the message played and the beau just kind of looked on in confusion. I haven't read many pages yet, but what I've read is wonderful, as always! I noticed the picture of her on the back flap is a picture she took of herself at a party. I saw it on Myspace!

I also found this cute coffee mug at Cracker Barrel. I hadn't been there in years and was overjoyed at all the delicious candy they had on stock. So of course I picked up these coconut bon bons!

In other news...I've been crafting away - making a lot of ATCs and receiving some really amazing ones too! I'll post soon enough. I don't like the way my own art photographs though. It seems so lackluster. The colors don't come through and yadda yadda.

Oh, how I wish I had those bon bons here with me now!

That's great news! Of course it's great so far...I just finished Guarding the Moon (the autobiography she wrote after her first baby was born)...what a powerful little trinket of a book that is!

I think you are doing a great job with your atc's, I was checking them out on flickr the other day.
