What I am Reading when I am not EATING! (ugh)


 Greetings everyone! I am off on the first leg of my Christmas vacation.  The last few weeks have been exciting and exhausting as I have been fortunate enough to participate in a number of holiday shows in addition to increasing my inventory at the boutique.  I am taking a little break to enjoy my family and, it would appear, to eat, eat, eat.  There are too many dang good cooks in this family.  BUT, since I have already committed to my new workout schedule for the end of this year beginning of next year I am giving myself permission to enjoy myself within limits.  

On to the point of this post: My absolute favorite thing to do when I am not In the Studio is to read.  I often have to force myself to back away from the sewing machine and to put the paintbrushes down so that I can recharge.  So, without further delay here are a few of the books I am currently enjoying.  Feel free to send titles of some of your favorite reads.  Wishing you peace and blessings during this holiday season and in the coming new year!   More dolls coming in 2008!     the urban wildflower.
