i picked up the newest issue of artful blogging this weekend. it is a beautiful issue and features a few artists i already heard of.. such fun!
also got these cute vintage fabrics from thrifty goodness on etsy. http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5125179 i think they are really pretty..not sure what will be made from them..yet!
i have been reading staphen king books lately.. i have become bored with romance type novels.. so i thought i'd try stephen king. so far i've read cujo, fire starter and i just finished rose madder..which was very good. next i'm starting dolores claiborne.
as you can see i have a few more to read after that.. pet sematary, the dark half and misery..
any book suggestions welcomed here!..please nothing too scary! i am prone to nightmares lol!
