Yay and congrats to you Vic. I'm sure you'll do a spiffing job.
So....the theme for this week is "What I'm Reading".
What are you reading right now…? Is it a book? A magazine? A blog? What do you wish you were reading? Where do you wish you were reading it? Is it a library book? Was it a gift? Are you enjoying it or persevering?
Your take on this theme can be whatever you want it to be, and I want to see it! You can take a quickie photo without getting up, you can draw a picture (…that gives me an idea… I’d love to see a diorama. Go on. Make a diorama!), you can trek to the library and take covert snaps, whatever, wherever, you’ve got time!Right at this moment I'm getting a LOT of mileage out of these two mags below.
Anything published by Stampington is just brilliant in my little world! Oh my but these make my heart sing, as I'm so fond of saying. Only problem is the cost. It certainly adds up, but still it doesn't stop me buying them! :)
The book below is by the author of Chocolat (loved the movie and book) and Five Quarters of the Orange (don't remember a lot about this one, but I did enjoy the read).
I haven't actually started this yet, apart from the little bit inside the cover. Joolz and I bought it between us last year some time, and now that she's done with it, it's my turn.
I used to read quite a LOT, but decided one day, some years back, that I needed to stop reading for a while, cos when I started reading a good book there was no way I would put it down, and consequently nothing else got done!! So for the sake of the housework (yeah sure!) and my craft, it was goodbye to books (well big ones anyhoo) for a while until I could learn to discipline myself a tad! :)
When Joolz handed this book over to me, I thought I'd give it a go and see how much of a good girl I can be. Love, love the cover! So "me" don't you think? lolol. All that mixed media, so to speak. That's a good start, yes?
Stay tuned! Hope to start it in the next couple of days.
