This book was just tremendous! I loved it, and I never would have chosen it on my own: weird title, and it's basically a compilation of letters, which I thought would be annoying, but for some reason worked really well. This is a definite must-read!!!
Next up is a series I got into by accident: The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare.I don't mind admitting that I frequently choose books by their cover. When I picked up City of Bones last week, I didn't realize the target audience is teen girls, and I normally don't even go for urban fantasies, but for whatever reason, I bought it. After the first few pages, I realized it was probably going to be something like Twilight, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but again, not really what I was expecting. Well, I whipped through it in a couple of days, then bought City of Ashes and whipped through that one (it was even better!) and now I can't wait to get my hands on City of Glass. These books are not classic literature by any means, but are still a lot of fun, even if you're not into demons, vampires and werewolves.

So this photo is one of Nolan playing in our big fresh snowfall last year. I used lyrics from "Frosty Returns" on this page - Ailis was watching it on Saturday, and I had the song in my head all weekend! Seemed appropriate. I misted over a felt snowflake to make the circle accent, did some random stamping for the little flags, and used a background stamp and brayer to make the houndstooth strip. That's right, every piece of paper (except the black) started out white!
