November News...

(Picture by Monica Zuniga )
I cannot believe it is November already! I usually love fall but we have all been sick on and off here so I haven't really been enjoying it so far. I want to share with you what I have been doing though. I am over halfway in the third book of the Twilight series . I started the first one when I was sick this week and I haven't been able to put them down . The story is a nice escape from reality . I also am taking a keepsake journal workshop called "EVE to EVE" . It began Halloween eve and runs through to New years eve. It covers lots of things . Klair is a wonderful teacher. I love listening to her voice and the class is just soothing. I also took a Coptic book binding class with her and I loved it but I still need to sew my pages together. I also am seriously considering taking this class with Monica called Winter Goddess . I cannot say enough about Monica . She is so kind and so talented and I love her classes . It is also Art everyday month here . You can participate however you would like as long as you are doing something creative.Oh and if that wasn't enough how about NaNJouMo? A daily journaling prompt for the month . Day 1 is today and the prompt is "Freedom" . I have been wanting to journal so I will think about how I would like to use this .

What are you up to for this month ?

I am off to watch "The proposal " and just relax . It seems that's all I have been doing but I have been so drained since I have been sick . Hope you had a Happy Halloween .

  4. Jackie feel better soon dear friend.

    Thank you for your offers, there is nothing right now, but she will read your comment and will appreciate you.

    Jackie I only read the first twilight book for a bookclub and one of my sisters was in it and said I don't get it. Like what would happen if she had her period? I replied 'That is what you would call a win/win.'

    I thought I was funny.

    Love Renee xoxo
