I really loved some of the images that Gayle over at www.littlebirddesign.blogspot had on her blog. She is from Scotland. I mentioned how much I loved them and where could I get them. Well she just stamped me some and sent them to me with some extras in a really cute folder. That was so so nice of her. Merci Gayle!!!!

Well we attended the debut book signing of the book of Acheron, for the year of "Acheron". It was at the Parthenon,in Nashville, TN, a replica, of the one in Greece. Inside is a huge statue of Artemis, a main character in the DarkHunter series. There were about 500 fans there. Some with horns, wings and vampire teeth, it was very interesting. We waited in line about an hour, and we got a lanyard and three buttons, one that said "bite me", it was cute. We finally got inside to see Sherrilyn. She was dressed in a black lace dress with her vampire teeth in, you would not have known her as the all american mom.
After we saw Sherrilyn we met the characters, Ash (who did not look like I thought he should), Zerek (he did look like I thought he would, Rafeal, he looked right , Nick Gautier (looked ok) and Sundance (I somehow missed his story, so I didn't know what he should have looked like. They were very nice and signed our books and let us take pictures. I have included the pics. It was fun!
Well school has started for the teachers and the students come in this Wednesday. I am not ready. My room is, but I'm not. I wanted to make so much this summer, but have really done nothing. So I have entered myself into 5 swaps, so that I would have to make something. They are not due until mid August so I will have time to do them.
One exciting thing, after school tomorrow, my friend and I will be going to Nashville, TN to see one of our favorite writers, Sherrilyn Kenyon. She has a book signing of her new book, Asheron(sp wrong). If any of you read her, you know he is the Main Guy in the Dark Hunter series. He will be there in person, along with his friends, we are not sure which, but Simi, his demon tattoo who comes to life will be there. She is really cool. We are hoping to get pics and I will post them. This should be exciting! She also writes as Kinley MacGregor if any of you read historical romances. She's cool, she has three little boys and lives just outside of Nashville. She looks just like a regular Mom, but has a wonderful imagination and plenty of energy. If you are interested in vampires and were creatures, not scary but romantic and funny, she is the one to read. Her books are in the romance section under paranormal. If you have never read paranormal, check her out. They are very entertaining, and not scary.
I have always loved France and the French language since I was in kindergarten and learned all of my numbers and colors in French. It was no suprise that I became a French teacher. I love everything that's vintage, pretty, girlie, frenchie, etc.
