I totally got sucked into Seanan McGuire's Toby Dane series. I finished up the fifth book yesterday and instantly downloaded the next. Binge reading a series is one of my favorite things ever, especially if there are a lot of the books already released! The first one is currently $1.99 and I admit, I struggled with it. It has a lot of world building, slow moving, characters with similar names and fae hierarchy that was a little tricky for me to get into. Everyone said the series gets stronger and I agree! I'm now totally hooked. My favorite part is Spike, he's a creature called a Rose Goblin and I won't spoil what it is but if you are interested, the author has a cute illustration on her website. I sometimes struggle with books when the main character just goes through SO MUCH that you want them to just catch a break, I feel that way with this but the lighthearted bits keep me coming back! Also, there is a complicated relationship between two of the characters that I'm enjoying watching progress.
My husband, Ashleigh & I are heading to Arizona for the Creativation Show. Ashleigh designed a collection of super cute Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery stamps for Waffle Flower! We are super excited to work with them, it's really awesome to take something Ashleigh & I both love as a hobby (journaling, planners, etc!) and be able to create products for it with a special company. I've been playing around with the cactus stamps in my Happy Planner. I'm going to do a whole post on my planner because I *love* this thing a ton! I don't love the ink pads I have so I'm hoping to pick some new ones up while we are in Arizona or at least learn about different options!
If I can take some photos while we are there I'm sure I'll do a blog post about the show once I get home. :)
