I'm just a little upset right now...

with Jodi Picoult who wrote this book...I finished it today and well...ok have you ever read a book or seen a movie that just "HAUNTS" you? A good example for me I think would be "Schindler's List" or "Saving Private Ryan"...This book kept me up the past two nights, I cried, I was scared, I was angry... Jodi has this incredible ability to paint a story, I really felt like I was there....and just when I thought I was at peace with how it was going to end, I mean Iknew it would be sad but I didn't expect to be blown over with it...it was completely unexpected...It I think would be impossible to read this book and not put yourself in Sara's place...I can't get it out of my head and yet I want to tell everyone to read it because it was so good...I can't wait to get my hands on everything else she's written...especially "The Plain Truth" for Lain's book club...I devour books...sometimes I read them too fast like I found myself doing with this one, so I made myself take more time... If you haven't read it go get it, because it's going to be a movie by next year...really I just read on Jodi's website that Cameron Diaz is going to play Sara, and the Fanning sisters are playing Kate and Anna....so go read it.....


Landon stayed home from school today he's got that nasty respiratory bug that seems to be going around, while we watched a Star Wars marathon, I got some cropping done...hey I can multi task...

I made this Star Album...another thing I've been wanting to try...I wanted to do something Christmasy so I turned it into a sort of story about decorating for Christmas and what signficance some of decorations have to me....like my hallmark snowman collection, and the musical frosty that was made for me when I was 2...






it's kind of hard to tell from the pics but when you open it up and tie the front and back covers together it's in the shape of a star....



Then I did this layout for pencil lines this week sketch #59





I just got back from getting my eyebrows waxed, so I look really surprised right now...the girl who did it (I'm sorry I don't know her name I go where I sometimes get my nails done and it's always someone different) anyway she did an awesome job, but she kept asking me if I wanted my chin done well not really my chin just under my lower lip...wth? is this some kind of reverse mustache? when did I get hair under my bottom lip? so as soon as I got home I ran into the bathroom, and there it is...are you kidding me? like I don't have enough things to wax already....

Isn't that amazing how books can affect you--at least the good ones? Thanks for the review.

And that pencil lines layout is simply gorgeous!
