Strawberries anyone?

I made this quick little card tonight while Darren is building his General Lee car model. We love our new craft room.

Thanks for stopping by. :)

Two birthday cards

I have a new craftroom! Darren,  my love,  got it all set up for me.  He is so wonderful!  It is so nice to be able to craft again without having to bring everything out and pack it again once I am done.

Here at two cards I made with the same image:

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-TimeThe Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A beautifully weird book; beautiful nonetheless. I loved it!! Loved how the author narrated the entire book in Christopher's point of view and in his words. Mark Haddon kept the reader (in this case, me!) interested from start to end. The story was very touching and had many tender moments. Although Christopher warned us that his book was not going to be funny, it was at times (which made it fun to read). How he views the world might seem extreme, but totally normal for someone with autism. I loved all the little facts and the mathematical equations. It was a fun and quick read and recommend it to all. This is a little jewel of a book!

Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

Hollow City (Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, # 2)Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. I couldn't wait to read this book and waited patiently for its release. I was not disappointed!!! What a fantastic and fabulous story. Lot of action; a roller coaster of emotions, lots of bad bad guys and lots of super awesome peculiars. The concept of this book is unique (to me it is anyway). I love the old pictures scattered throughout the book which makes the story come alive.

Ransom Riggs' writing is superb. Each scene is described with the right amount of details and transports you in the area where they take place. There is no dull moment in this book and I have to admit that he totally got me in the end. I did not see this coming. What an ending!!! Now the wait starts until the next book. Patience! Patience! I just can't wait!!!

The Silver Chain by Primula Bond

The Silver Chain (Unbreakable Trilogy, Book 1)The Silver Chain by Primula Bond
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Silver Chain was interesting and unique as far as an erotica book. Gustav and Serena have their ups and downs and sometime it feels a bit redundant. I sometime felt that the story was dragged longer than needed. Primula Bond's writing is good and her landscape descriptions are awesome. Her characters are not perfect and have different dimensions. I was particular surprised by the ending and it makes me curious to read the next book. Overall, I think it was a good erotica book; not over the top; well balanced between an interesting story and the right amount of erotica.
