Yep Judy, I read a lot. I love Fern Michaels, Sandra Brown, Nora Roberts. I will have to check out Debbie Macomber, sounds interesting.

Also, I have read "Lets Sew Many Designs" from cover to cover. Its really good. and new pages are added daily. flower

Someone on here(LSMD) recommended to me the book "The Shack" oh my I can not tell you how wonderful it is! I read it in 3 days only because I was sick other wise I'd of read it in 1 and a half or two days at the most. If you are a christian you must read this book and if you are not a believer then you must read this book too. I was touched and changed I recommend that you read the forward of the book before reading chapter one.
Also has anyone seen the movie "Fire Proof"? It is a christian movie. I have had many people tell me it is a must see and some have seen it twice.
Anyway I love to read christian romance. One of the last ones I read was called "scraps of love" one book with 4 novellas inner twined stories about a hand made quilt. I have a used book store less than 5 minutes away from my house.
I buy my stuff there. By the way I seen my Secret Pal listed a favorite Arthur do any of you mind used books? thinking I could pick some up there for my S/P and maybe get 2 for the price of one. What do you think?

I think that is a great idea Mel!! We have several bookstores around, I am going have to go check them out and see if I can find any of the ones you guys have recommended.
We also have an Ollies. Does anyone else have one near them. They carry lots and lots of books and most are Christian books. And they sell at very reasonable prices, and are brand new. http://www.olliesbargainoutlet.com/ I have been there for awhile may need to go see what they have.

I love to get reused,secondhand useful books. I don't have a used book store here but checkout most of my books from the library and occosionally they have paperbacks for sale cheap and I check them out to see if I find one I like. I look at garage sales also. I'm going to have to look for "the shack" and "scraps of love" they sound good. Judy

I had the most pleasant surprise yesterday. I received from my Secret Pal a wonderful birthday gift of a beaufiul glass vase filled with spicy fall smelling poperri{can't spell it but love it} It has little lights in it to light it up and enhance the smell. Then she cover the top with a beautiful linen top with embroidery and wonderful crochet edging.
Thank you Secret Pal. Your the greatest and I so appreciate your thoughtfullness. Will try to get a picture to post soon. I'm still trying Rolling Eyes to be good and make the Santa good list for a new camera for christmas but until then I have to rely on DD to help me out.
Thanks again SP. Judy

Okay everyone, as I have said in the past. I have the most WONDERFUL SECRET PAL in the world !!!!!!!!! Well, she has outdone herself again. I have received 2 of the cutest things you have ever seen. and she had them ordered and made by different people in different parts of the US. too cool. I received them both on the same day. One is the cutest handmade wooden pumpkin that is actually made in 2 pieces that fit together to make it. The other is a handemade chalk board, complete with a tiny eraser. I was sooo surprised and excited. I LOVE both of them, and have put them both to use already. I can tell you it felt like rendeer at my house. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you Secret Pal. flower
I have attached a picture for All to see.

Wow, the strangest thing just happened. MY DH came in with the mail and he dropped a package at Tobys (my cat) feet, and said "this is for you" !!! My mind was blown, so I opened it, and sure enough, it is the cutest fish made out of felt. It must have catnip in it, as he went nuts (never had any before) and will not let me have it even long enough to take a picture. I can only imagine that it had to come from MY Secret Pal, as it said (Secret Buddy) on the back of the envelope. I don't have a way to figure out if i this is true until Dec when we reveal who we are, so all I can do is say if it was you.... THANK YOU. That was the sweetest thing anyone has done in a long time. He loves it.

When I unpack the Christmas stuff I will try to remember to post a picture. There was like 5 pieces....2 legs, 1 body, 1 head and the antlers. DH made them for Christmas presents for all the siblings. You put a big red pom pom on for the nose and wiggley eyes.

I guess since this swap is over we can reveal our secret pals names. Mine was Becky. Becky I sure enjoyed having you for my secret pal even if it did get mixed up and was revealed to you earlier with the gift certificate idea. Sorry about that but it was fun. Judy

Hmmm, guess we can reveal now, huh? My Secret Pal was Margie (froggie31). I had a great time making special frog items for her.
I think my Secret Pal was Duan (madeforyoubyme) I am waiting to see if I was right. lol!
This was fun and I do look forward to the next round.
