The Weekend means Wedding Planning and Homework

If I don't post very much this week, it's due to the fact that I'm swamped with end of semester projects for my MLS (yay-my first semester in is almost finished!) Plus, I'm working full time and my wedding is THREE WEEKS AWAY!!! I'm really excited, even if I am a little stressed too. I can't wait to share with you all the ways I'm incorporating books in the wedding. Take a look at these awesome flowers my mom made (I helped a little!)

I'm almost finished with The Amaranth Enchantment by Julie Berry, so expect a review to come soon. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!


  1. The flowers look awesome!

    Congrats and just remember the stress will end soon!

  2. BTW: How long ago did you start planning? I'm just in the beginning stages and have no clue what I'm doing!

  3. Oooh...the Amaranth Enchantment sounds AMAZING, lucky you! And I'm sure your wedding will be gorgeous! Those flowers are super-pretty!

  4. Oh how exciting! I love weddings. Those flowers are lovely.

  5. Only 3 weeks wow, time goes by so quickly.
    Love the flowers we made a lot of flower stuff for our own wedding, so i know how much it all helps.


  6. Amazing! I hope your wedding plans fall into place and that you enjoy your day!

  7. Three weeks! EXCITING! I hope all goes smoothly and you dazzle all your guests :)

    Those flowers are pretty - are some of them made out of pages???

  8. The flowers are beautiful! Good luck with your school projects and the wedding plans!

  9. Congrats and the flowers look amazing!! I love the colors!

  10. Congrats! I had no idea you were planning a wedding I loved planning ours. I love the flowers, too!!

    Best wishes to you both and enjoy the day! I hate to say it, but it will fly by. :-)

  11. Love the flowers. Oh, a bunny left ya a little something @

  12. the flowers are gorgeous! I can't wait to see pics of the wedding.

  13. Wow, didn't know it was so soon! That's so exciting! Try not to stress too much. Just remember that it can't all go perfectly so don't let the little things get to you. Try to relax, enjoy and go with the flow. It's the little unpredictable moments that give your wedding personality and that you will laugh about later. Have a wonderful day and enjoy it all. It does go so very fast.

    Would also love to chat with you sometime about help for the childrens librarian at our public library. She wants to get more involved with the internet and possibly blogging. When I told her about ways to make contact with other librarians, authors, publishers, etc., she was thrilled and wanted to know more. I mentioned you and all of the neat things that you do on your blog. She is especially interested now that the budget has been cut further and she can't order as many books. Thanks so much!

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
