My Kramer Picture

Look what my girlfriend made for me.  Isn’t it awesome??

See how it says “Kramer”?

I had seen something seen something similar at a local decorating shop but there were always more expensive than I was willing to spend even though I really liked them.

Silly me-I never thought of making one…but my girlfriend did.  She made it herself.  The thing I love best about it is that it’s personal to us.  The “K” is made from bricks.  Goodness knows that we pulled LOTS of bricks from the chimney we took out of the house.

The “R” is wine corks.  We drink wine together quite regularly.

The “A” is a step ladder.  Goodness knows we’ve spent LOTS of time a ladder.

The “M” was a tough one…she just found the “M”.

The “E” is made from fabric.

The “R” is from a fireman sign her husband has….my Hubby is a volunteer fireman too.

Aren’t you impressed??  I sure am.  I asked her about the frame and she said she bought this frame Malden International Designs Berkeley Matted Black Wood 4 x 6″ Collage Picture Frame.  It’s available with a variety of different number of picture openings.

The idea is so neat…I sure wish I’d have thought of it.  I do have to say it’s one favorite gifts.

What I’m Reading: Busted

I just finished up listening to the audio book Busted: A Novella (Will Trent series) (The Will Trent Series) by Karin Slaughter….well I really shouldn’t say book…it was just a novella-or short book.  –sigh–

Don’t get me wrong, the “book” wasn’t bad.  Just short.  I was hoping for a long book..one with lots of plot and lots of the wonderful stuff Karin Slaughter puts into her full length books…I wanted to spend a couple days lost in the book but this I just listened to in an afternoon….and worst, Sara wasn’t in the book.  Wait-wait, I am getting ahead of myself.

I’ll start at the beginning.  I am Karin Slaughter fan.  It all started a few years back when I read Triptych (Will Trent).  Before then I didn’t read or listen to a lot of crime novels…after I read Triptych, I started reading lots more.  The character is Will Trent and I really like him and  his stories.  Triptych hooked me and I’ve been hooked ever since.

In fact, that book had me going back and reading all of her previous books and I’ve listened or read all of the ones since.  That has to say a lot for the books for me to have been through all of them.

When I checked out Busted I didn’t realize it was a novella.  I thought is was a long book…no such luck.  That doesn’t mean it was bad..just not what I was hoping for.  The story was still okay but not quite as good as her other books as there isn’t enough time for the detailed plots that I love.

Amazon readers say 4.2 stars.  I’ll just stick with 4 stars.  I did notice that she has a new book out.  I was over and checked to see if my online library has…no such luck.  The second I am done writing this blog post I am heading over to their request page and request that get it though…it’s a request I hope they take!
