Holiday gift exchange in Romancelandia #4

Wow, More characters exchanging gifts this holiday. How thoughtful...


Also, I wanted to show this beautiful book thong that Jace of Jace Scribbles made. I love it so much!! That sort of magenta/pink is one of my favorite colors.

You can see this sort of thing, plus origami, on Jace's craft blog.

It was also very exciting to just have something come in the mail fr0m Malaysia! Thanks Jace.

Jace's creation is pictured on a giant fuzzy fake fur winter coat that the cats have unfortunately commandeered. You can't tell, but the cat pictured is a bit angry at being displaced.

I sort of like winter, but the worst part of winter for me is getting in cold cars and waiting for them to warm up (probably not a problem for you, Jace!) and this outrageously giant coat is perfect for that because it is like a snugly blanket. I sort of don't know what to do about the coat, because the kitties love it!

Anyway, cold cars, cat fur-covered coats. But now I have a sparkly bookmark. Maybe I will stay in and read all winter.

Oh and I just finished Dirty! I should write about it soon.

CJ you are crazy! I just love it. See what I've been missing by not doing all of my blog hopping the past couple of weeks? lol Too funny.

Jace said...

I'm pleased that you're pleased. :-D Enjoy the bookmark. I'm tickled by your kitty. When he's done feeling miffed, he'll probably swipe at the tassel - kitties and string don't mix. :-)

Tracy: Hey! Well, I know you've had your hands full!

Jace: the kitty already tried, but I made it clear that thong is NOT a kitty toy. But yes, the shiny beads are attractive to kitty too. Luckly they have millions of other toys.

LOL. So would that make Nyx like Grandma Mazur?

Pretty bookmark!

Renee said...

Ooh! I forgot to add:
Last week, I put Anne Stuart's Black Ice on my booklist. I'm interested to hear what you think about it.

Carolyn Jean said...

Renee: Ha! That was exactly what I was thinking. Yes, Black Ice I've had around forever and I'm just starting, but I'm switching around with numerous books right now, so it may be a while.

CJ - Two words for you, my friend: TUSHY WARMER. The most magical car invention EVER!

Hey! I think I actually understand that cartoon because now I read a KC book! Ha.
Though the only Stephanie Plum book I've read had a guy called Diesel.

Yes, I want details on Dirty! I know it's a little darker and after reading an excerpt, it depressed me. Is the ending totally crappy or is there some sort of uplifting moments??

Jace is very crafty! Love her bookmarks :D

I'm looking forward to your review of Dirty so glad to hear you finished it. BTW- I hate waiting for cars to warm up too :)
