Romancing the Holidays
Hour Three — Getting Crafty
I bet some of you folks make your own gifts for the holidays – wonderful knitted scarves or sweaters, or perhaps Christmas ornaments or other crafts. Well, I have a confession to make. I absolutely suck at crafts or that kind of imaginative handiwork. But I was craftily inspired several weeks ago by one of my co-conspirators today, Theresa Romain. When Theresa gets her author copies from the publisher she constructs some kind of book edifice, usually a replica of a famous building. Here’s the one she did of the Eiffel Tower from her copies of Season For Surrender.
Not to outdone, I decided to build a Tower of London model from my author copies of His Mistletoe Bride.
Building on our artistic successes, Theresa and I decided to see if we could make a Christmas tree out of our books, for today’s gala. Alas, I failed miserably. Theresa, as you can see from her previous post, did not although a little bird told me that she had an engineering consultant assist her in the build, although you didn’t hear that from me.
Not to be outdone, I decided to go for something a bit different. I made a Christmas wreath out of the cover flats of my books. Sadly, I only had one flat for Sex And The Single Earl, but it is there if you look for it.
And here’s a close up of my wreath.
I think you’ll agree that my wreath looks FABULOUS. I mean, who needs a Christmas tree when you have something like that?! Not that I’m competitive, or anything. Really, I’m not.
What about you, readers? Do you make some of your own holiday gifts or crafts? Tell us all how talented you truly are!
