Good bye November

Thought I should get one more post in before the calender changes. Can't believe December is already here. I have been enjoying the Christmas shopping and because I rule at it, I am almost done. There are always those little gifts that you have to do some real hunting for.
In ref. to my last post I did finally get to see Harry Potter!!! Yay!
I was a little sad there wasn't more Luna in it but at least she was somewhat. The way she says things is just so cute.
Also there are a couple happy new items in the shop so please feel free to take a gander!
I will leave you and November with a couple books that I recently finished reading: Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr was wicked good, Paranormalcy by Kiersten White was filled to the brim with supernatural creatures and happenings, The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff just look at the cover and you will want to read it, and Extraordinary by Nancy Werlin. I don't know how it happened but November was the month of fairies for my book choices some way or another they made their way in.
Stay warm!

Not at Harry Potter

There is a midnight showing of the new Harry Potter but I am not at it. Some of us have to work in the morning. I do plan on seeing it sometime soon hopefully and I plan on wearing my customary shirt that I have worn to most the movies if not all. I think it looks awesome and can't wait to go. Instead I am at home feeling stuck in a rut. I haven't crocheted anything new in awhile, just have been doing random sketches in the sketchbook. Not much of anything. Just a whole lot of blah... Hopefully this will pass soon...

Warm days cold nights.

I can hardly believe it is November already. How time is flying past. Soon there will be snow on the ground and Christmas time. Which also means some vacation days but I am getting ahead of myself. As usual I have been trolling around the interweb and have found some really great sites and artists. I must say my new favorite site is Super Punch. They update all the time and it is always something interesting. Dull moments at work you can find me flipping over there for a little pick me up. Another similar site but not updated as much is Share Some Candy. It is filled with creative goodies.
Now to the awesome artists that I have stumbled upon. The first is JAW Cooper. What I like about her site is that she often shows you the process her pieces take, so you get to see something from sketch to finished product. Artist two is Katie Cook. She does a bunch of comic art, stuff relating to Star Wars, superheroes, etc. Really fun and cute. Last artist for now is Caia Koopman. She paints some really lovely ladies. Her blog isn't much but definitely check out her gallery. Pretty.
Random book recommendation: I am Number Four. It was awesome sci-fic. Not usually my forte but could hardly put it done. But that's just me. (It is being made into a movie)
So there it is folks. Sorry about the wait. Hopefully more goodies to found.
