Kellie Falconer of the lovely blog, Accordion to Kellie, is throwing a magnificent blog party! Up until a couple of weeks ago, I had no idea how a blog party worked. Though I'm still very much a novice in the whole "blog party" business, I am quite enjoying my very first introduction to it! It's … Continue reading The Literary Heroine Blog Party
Making book covers is one of my favorite hobbies. I love embroidering them with my initials or an iconic image from the story itself. The only problem with these beautiful covers is that they only fit hardback books. I've thought through various ideas for my paperback books, but until now I have never come up … Continue reading Homemade Book Case

I would drive my sister crazy asking questions like, "If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?" or "If you had to listen to … Continue reading Tag, I’m it!
Over the past few months, I've noticed a trend in the stories I've come across. I found, to my surprise, that it is in almost every story ever made. Think over all the movies you've watched, and books you've read. If they're good stories, they are almost guaranteed to have this theme at some level. … Continue reading No Greater Love
Last night, I was watching the special features for The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn. Jamie Bell, the actor who played Tintin in the show, was saying how honored he was to be playing a role loved by so many people for generations. He said that Tintin has been his hero for years. … Continue reading Hero
