I just want to thank everyone for sticking with me in starting up this blog. Thank you to everyone for following me here on Blogger!

It really makes me feel justified in posting when I know you guys are reading and appreciating what I'm posting.

In the future - what kind of things would you like me to post? Do you like the free stationery or do you prefer me posting images of the mail I receive and the mail I send out? Please, your comments really make my day and I would love to know more about what YOU, my loyal followers, would like to see on this blog. I am happy to accomodate :)

What are your thoughts on doing contests and give-aways on this blog? I've tried it before and no one signs up for them, so I never end up giving anyone anything - and I'd REALLY love to be able to send a special person, a winner a great snail mail package.

Do you have a blog you could post my give-aways on? Let me know!

Also - is anyone interested in doing a banner exchange? Either from one blog to another or from this blog to your website. Leave comments and let me know, or you can e-mail me at:    OR you can send me a letter at:

I'm still alive!

Just a post to let you guys know I'm still alive - it's been wicked hot here in Southern Ontario and I've had about a weeks worth of sun stroke and let me tell you - it's not fun.

I'm behind on my letters, behind on my scanning for Arachneas Attic - behind on everything, that is, except reading.

I've been pollishing off about a book a day. I'm re-reading some old favourites from highschool. Last night I "re-finished" Hunters Moon by O.R. Melling. The perfect book for a Canadian girl with an Irish heritage. Being taken away by the Fairie folk and getting married to the King of Fairies himself! I love O.R. Mellings writing and definately recommend any and all of her books. I've found two of them, and am on the lookout in the used bookstores for more of them. Not the easiest books to find.

I also finished reading an old classic - Madeleine L'Engle's Wrinkle in Time - very good book, but a bit slow in parts. I dragged myself through the second book - A Wind in the Door - a very slow read and not much of anything actually happens in the book - a little disappointing. We'll see what happens in the next one.

I'm also breezing through the Series of Unfortunate Events books - I'm on to book 8 out of 13 now. Very silly books, but a good read none the less. I enjoyed the movie that came out a long while back - Jim Carey did an excellent job as Count Olaf.

What else? Oh - I just started the Pendragon Series by D.J. MacHale - and by just started I'm only a chapter or two in at the moment. I've got to get used to the letter-like-first-person writing. Not used to it, but not bad so far.

What are you guys reading right now? I would love recommendations!
