Monday... R U Ready?!

There's only 7 shopping days left 'til Christmas... are you ready?!  Lol. 

I'm up to my elbows in crafting. I started making these book swag boxes and I love 'em. All my relatives are getting one. (If you are related to me, cover your eyes!)

One has bits of Pride & Prejudice in my handwriting on the inside. They're all one-of-a-kind. I hoard crafting supplies, so who knows where'd I'd find duplicate materials. *snort* No worries... I have lots more supplies, (You were worried, were you not?) in case you want one. $15 in the US, $20 INT.

I really want to post a How-To about these... I just decoupage 'em and I had only heard of the technique before I whipped out my first one a year ago. It's not complicated, just messy... and me -n- messy seem to get along swell.

What are they? You ask. *humph* Swag boxes, of course!!!  Somewhere you can hide your awesome stashes of signed bookmarks and stuff. You gotta have a secret safe beautiful place for them. You do keep your swag in a special place, right?  These are shaped like a book so they can hide on your bookshelf. (Like you have spare room on a bookshelf. That's funny.)

3It's Monday! What are you reading?!  Thx for askin', Sheila!

This week I finished Starflower, The Escape of Princess Madeline, & The Iron Queen. Hopefully I'll get those two reviews posted in the next few days.

Now I'm reading Splintered. I've only just got going, but what fun. I hope to start A Cast of Stones this week, too.
