A Pillow Book is a diary of sorts. It doesn't just talk about the day's events, but contains lists, observations, conversations, musings, anything the writer feels like writing about really. 21st Century is because this is a modern pillow book, since it's done on a computer.
This is me. This is what my life is all about. I will let you into my head a bit... feel what I'm feeling, see what I'm creating, understand what I'm learning. Enjoy my journey right along with me!

So last week on TTIC, the question was asked if reading Twilight has gotten you into reading (again). I added my 2 cents to the inquiry and then resumed reading Betrayed from the House of Night Series by PC Cast and Kristen Cast. More about these books another time... Anywho, I was reading a bit this morning, as I was nursing The Girl (as we affectionately call Rhiannon), and I was reading about a girl in the book (I'm now up to Haunted) who writes poetry. I thought, "Hmmm, I haven't written a poem in, like, years." And put it out of my head. Shortly thereafter, I was eating my delicious Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal (mmmmmmmmm...) and pop! A poem bubbled up from wherever my creative thoughts come from. It's about rediscovering my love of reading. Enjoy!
I turn the pages -awakened. I lose myself -elated. I longed for this -forgotten. I turn again -revived.

Greetings, Guys & Ghouls! It's Day 2 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Today I have a card that uses a very appropriate stamp for Halloween...it's called Candy Grab and it's from Stampendous. I'm not sure if the skeleton threw them up in the air with joy, or they just fell out of a pinata. But either way, it's a fun stamp! My full instructions on how to recreate this card are below.
