Best. Hubby. Ever! I asked Greg a while ago to make some murrine of the image on the cover of my book. He did make it and it’s been sitting on the work bench waiting for me to get time to make something with it. I did of course ask him to make a marble,but he balked and sort of ignored my request.
Okay. No problem.
So, imagine my surprise when he pulled this out of the kiln this morning:
I love it! It is pretty much exactly what I was hoping for when I asked him to make me one a month ago. One side has the silhouette image and the other side has houses with silhouette ghost people. The bottom has skulls and flowers.
And on the top: The word Bourbon.
Again, I have to say, I love it! Thanks, Greg.
I’ve put it on eBay with the other marbles and have included a signed copy of the book in the listing. You can check it out here.
Mondays are always super busy and for that reason alone, I usually find myself with the dreaded Monday blues. So, over the weekend I decided I’d have Mondays be Favorite Things day on the blog. You know. A place to talk about things that make me warm and fuzzy or squeal with glee.
Of course, I found myself swamped yesterday with stuff and I didn’t get the post written. (Please. I’m not organized enough to do my posts in advance and that would defeat the purpose of Favorite Things Monday anyway. The whole point is to take a few moments to focus on something that makes me smile). Obviously I failed at my first cheerful Monday post.
That means I have two things for Tuesday. Or three really.
First up: My boys. Little balls of energy and kisses.
Someone should really gives these scrubs a haircut.
Next up. The finished manuscript. My editor sent the word file back while I was at Bead and Button. Last night I finished my edits and revisions. I’ll be doing one more read through, then it’s off for a final copy edit on the changes I made. Holy Crap. Almost there!
