{ May time for something new }

Just thought I would pop in to say hi. No...nothing new in the creation world for me. Or at least no paper crafting creations. I have been busy with my crocheting. I will be posting some new photos on my other blog later. Quite honestly? I really have lost my mojo for paper crafting. I am not sure why exactly. I think mostly, it was a stale feeling I was having. It just stopped being fun and was more of a pressure to create and that is not what it should be all about. So I my paper crafting will only materialize when I truly feel it. Ya know? Sorry folks. I will still be popping in...this will still continue to be my HappyPlace, but not necessarily paper craft or crafty related. As some of you know, reading has become another passion of mine, so this may become more of a reading/book and just general place of babbling for me. If you decide to stick around...thanks...but if not? I totally understand.

If anyone is interested...on my sidebar I have a list of books I have read for the month. In that list is Book 1 and Book 2 of the Mortal Instruments Series. I must admit, there have only been a few series that can claim 'Obsession' status with me. First being Harry Potter. I was lucky enough not to catch onto the Harry Potter buzz until after all the books were out. This enabled me to read all the books back to back and not have to wait a year in between each one. Then there was the Twilight Series. Again I did not find the series until just before the final book was released. Unfortunately, my new Obsession, I am not that lucky. However? I am not complaining! The Mortal Instruments Series is definitely an Obsession for me. It is always in the back of my mind. I can not exactly explain it. It is a personal thing for me. Something going back to my childhood. Lets just say...this world created my Cassandra Clare? It is my world. Those of you who know me, probably won't get it? Then again, you may. ;0) And yes, even though I am old enough to be his Mom? Jace? Oh Jace...;0) If you have not read this series? I would HIGHLY recommend you do. It has EVERYTHING in it. You can read all the reviews over at Goodreads and see what everyone else has to say too...not just my very obsessive voice! Although, I don't really care what everyone else has to say about this one...I am very content with my obsession, thank you very much! ;0)

I haven't craft for a week now and I'm too busy reading too!! I'm reading Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter Novel. Total of 17 books and I have read 7 so far.

Mortal Instruments is one of my favorite series... love them and totally agree with you about Jace ;) I actually bought all three books for my daughter awhile back... they sat on the book shelf for months, she just wasn't interested and finally I decided I was going to read them. Well, they are now MY books! I may have to read the series over before the 4th book comes out... I hate waiting!

I just picked up Clockwork Angel last night and so far I LOVE it!
