On my nightstand: Spooky reads


Hello Everyone,

I thought I would share with you what’s currently on my nightstand. I want to join in the fun and find a book in my possession that would fall under spooky reads. I haven’t read a thriller since I was in high school. I am pretty much a chicken when it comes to horror. But I thought since Halloween is this month, a spooky read might be fun. It’s time to leave my comfort zone and go exploring.  I had bought, “Daughters of Gods and Shadows” by Jayde Brooks a long while back and thought it would work nicely. I am also excited to read a debut black author in the genre of Fantasy. This is book one in a trilogy and lucky me, the second book in the trilogy is coming out November 17 and it is called, “City of Dark Creatures”. So I could marathon through book two once I finish.


This book is about:

Eden Reid is not interested in prophesy. The problem is that a doozy of a prophesy is bearing down on her. Such is the case when you’re a twenty-four-year-old from Brooklyn, New York who is about to discover she is an ancient god. A truly powerful one. And with power comes problems.
A truly formidable demon is gunning for her; a zombie-like pandemic is spreading across the country, creating creatures who are hungry for flesh, fast on their feet and clever; and there is the mysterious, handsome stranger with powers of his own who claims to have been her lover from a time and a life that Eden cannot remember. He promises to help awaken her powers for the upcoming war. A war where there is only one prize: survival…in Daughter of Gods and Shadows from debut author Jayde Brooks.

If I finish it quickly, I will read, “Hollywood Witch Hunter” by Valerie Tejeda  which is an ebook on my Kindle.


This book is about:

From the moment she first learned the truth about witches…she knew she was born to fight them.
Now, at sixteen, Iris is the lone girl on the Witch Hunters Special Ops Team.
But when Iris meets a boy named Arlo, he might just be the key to preventing an evil uprising in Southern California.
Together they’re ready to protect the human race at all costs. Because that’s what witch hunters do.
Welcome to Hollywood.

This one is suppose to be a fast-paced fun book. It is only 99 cents on Amazon right now if you need another spooky read.

Happy Spooky Reading!!


Happy World Cardmaking Day!

anniversaryHappy World Cardmaking Day! I thought I would share with you a card I made for my sister’s anniversary.  I used the amazing Mo Manning’s digi of this lovely bride and groom and colored them up with my Copics.  I love the fall color of the envelop I used from Paper Source.

anniversary2I have quite a lot of embossing plates (many unused) so I pulled out one that I thought looked elegant and embossed a white piece of cardstock that I attached to the front of the card.

anniversary3Again the beauty of using digital stamps is that you can resize he images. So I decided to make them companion bookmarks. I used an MFT bookmark die to cut the bookmarks. anniversary4Then I used a really great hemp cord to attach these beautiful vintage soaring bird charms from Maya Roads that I bought years ago. I get so happy when I actually use up my supplies!

anniversary5I hope you all have a great day and maybe find time to make a little card today for World Cardmaking Day!
