(I was TOTALLY not expecting it, since I thought International orders didn't go out til yesterday. I love it, I love it, I love it! I can't wait untilt here is daylight tomorrow, so I can photograph the yarn in proper natural light! The post man dropped this off this evening, while I was giving Sean his bath. I knew it was Canada Post though, since the post man ALWAYS rings twice. I'm still expecting other stuff in the mail, so I thought it was that... Jamie answered the door, since I was bathing Sean, and all I heard Jamie say was... "You just made my wife one happy woman!" And I knew what it was. This package is ALL that I've been talking about for the last week.....!
This is Sophie Kinsella. She's the author of the Shopaholic series and a bunch of other books. She was in Montreal tonight, at the Chapters downtown, signing books. Since I didn't know about it until too late, my brother's girlfriend, picked me up a copy and got it autographed for me.
Here is her latest book autographed. How freakin' cool is that? It even says my name!
I'm just missing one, which is Can you Keep a Secret?, which I want. Did you know, taht Sophie Kinsella is not her real name, it's Madelaine Wickham, which is another name (her real name) that she writes under. I can't decide if she looks more like a Madelaine or more like a Sophie. Too hard to tell! Anyhow, Thank you Melissa for getting me one of my fave author's book signed! Another thing that made my day today! (And yes, her 2nd book is Shopaholic Takes on Manhattan but I bought my copy while I was waiting in the airport in London, England, at Heathrow, and it's the European title to her 2nd book).
These are some earrings that I made tonight. The top ones are made out of real coconut. The rainbow ones are fun, and the last 2 pairs are made from real sea shells. They're all awesome, and they will be going into my Etsy Shop tomorrow. If anyone is interested in an advance purchase, let me know, I'l send you a paypal invoice! If not, they'll be in my Etsy shop as soon as possible.
