Etsy Shop of Interest *LIZZY BLEU*

While I was ill, there was one author in particular that always checked in on me and sent me some really sweet things to make me smile, cards and called as well. As I started to get better, I really wanted to send her something back for her genuine interest in my well being.

I wanted something that was definitely from *ME*, but would be appropriate for an author! I found the cutest store on Etsy that sells bracelets and other jewelry made from vintage typewriter keys and they are absolutely adorable! The artist's name is Lizzy and she is amazingly talented! I just wanted to share her store with you just in case you might want one of these cute little bracelets (or other items) for yourself.

I do have a few other ideas, but I'm thinking of giving one away for my blog-a-versary. I'm such a shop-a-holic! I already got one for myself as well! LOL Maybe I should post a picture of mine here. I LOVE it!

OK...some other information you might need...

How about the name of her Etsy Shop? It's Lizzy Bleu and here's the link to one of the examples! Very cute!

She also accepts CUSTOM ORDERS as well!! I'm sure I can go on and on... It would probably be best if you just go and check it out for yourself! Although, I MUST say that the packaging is beautiful as well and she is a VERY wonderful person to work with!

So, this is my little way of thanking her!! THANK YOU LIZZY!!

I hope you all enjoy her work! This one is the one she made for me....

Here's another one that she has had in her shop in the past and I thought some of you might find it just as cute as I did!
That's all I have for you today!!

I know...I've made it sound like a new twist to an old dance. Sure up there in the heading, it even sounds FUN! But, OK...and maybe it's just me....you know what? I'm SURE it IS just ME. I can NOT for the life of me figure this thing out!! (just like all of you trying to figure out my punctuation in that last sentence...)

What is it FOR? What is it? I mean, I'm not SUPER computer savvy and I'll admit that right now and up FRONT. I do MySpace, Face Book, Library Thing... My Blog. Why Oh Why can't I figure out TWITTER.

I'm like a little kid when it comes to this sort of thing.... "I WANNA' TWITTER TOO!!"

EVERYONE and I mean EVERYONE can and is Twittering!! (Is that a word??) They all have the bug and now I've been bitten too! But it's like symptoms with NO COLD! How do I catch it? And I'm sitting right here until someone offers this *Princess* up some help! I want to follow you all on Twitter. But HOW...HOW do I?
Anyone who's Anyone is on Twitter, Right? (Seriously, this is what I'm being told) And another question... If I can't figure this out, does it make me a *twit*? (That I just threw in there to make myself laugh... You didn't know I was so witty... did you?)

OK...I'll stop whining like a child now. (*For the moment...but I swear I can't promise anything) After all, I'm sure you've gotten my point! And in case you haven't...

What's wrong with me? Why can't I just Twitter Too?

That's all I've got for ya'

....I'll figure this out. Just you wait and see! (Of course, someone already has MY name!)

A New Beginning!

Hi All!

Well, I'm finally home...

You have NO idea how good this feels! I can start reviewing again on a daily basis and I can hold contests and see all of my friends again.

But, I can't lie, there have been many changes made in my life. Permanent changes that have affected me greatly. I'm not ready to talk about all of them yet, but I will...in time. You've all been wonderful and to the authors and publishers "THANK YOU"! Can you hear me yelling?? See me waving *Waving Madly*!! Cancer is a horrible thing. It doesn't pick and choose. It's equally terrible to everyone! It doesn't care what you do, how old you are, what color you are, if you have a family or if you don't...

My choice...to fight back. And that I did. Did I win? To me, somewhat...and I know you all don't understand what I mean yet, but you will. I'm just not ready to talk about it yet and when I am, you'll be the first to know. A few closer friends online do know. I chose to tell them through private emails that they've sent to me. But enough about *C*...and more about BLOGGING, BLOGGERS and BOOKS!! YAY!!

I've received some really great books to review recently and I will get those posted! And today, I received a friend request on Face Book from my favorite Thriller writer Rick R. Reed! He now has ten (10) published Novels and I couldn't be happier for him! Continued success to you Rick! I was extremely surprised and honored that he was looking for me and wondering how I was doing. It made me *blush* a little... Anyway, he has a great post on the blog entitled "In Cold Blog" about his real life stalker experience and it's quite scary...you should check it out!

Another great thing...I've been book blogging over a year! It seems like yesterday! I can't believe it .... SO, in honor of that, I'm thinking up a great GIVE-A-WAY while we speak (or AS I TYPE!). Going through the blogs, I see just how much I've missed and some of it was quite a shock...

Dewey...I don't know what to say. I couldn't believe what I was reading and my prayers and heart go out to her and her family! I was sad I missed the read-a-thon. I missed so much. Those things made me sad and mad. It made me think of my own family and friends...my friends on line and what cancer "took away" from ME! I have been reading all of your blogs, just not posting on many! I've been lurking for a bit...Nymeth? Congrats on your "Dangerous Alphabet Book"... how cool is that?? Trish, I missed you greatly! And so many of you I tried to contact personally in a letter. J.Kaye? Your BLOG looks AMAZING! I promise to catch up on everyone and what they are doing...I also hope to have many of you stopping by here to catch up with me as well! So stop by and pass my blog on!

There are other things to "ME" besides reading and I think that I might let you all in on those things in between reviews as well...just in case...you never know. I don't want you to think ALL I do is READ. I love FASHION, PINK, CHOCOLATE and SATC...SHOES....SHOES AND SHOES! This year I think I'm going to let it all out. I have to. And not for you...for ME! So, if you want to learn about new authors, favorites, books and ME....the PRINCESS behind the BLOG, PLEASE stay tuned!

*PHEW!* I am SOOOO Glad to be back!! Unfortunately, that's all for now! Until then...
