That's the main website for Cassandra Clare; if you haven't read this series... I strongly advise you too! Seriously though, it's awesome.
Now all they need is Alex Pettyfer for the role of Jace and it would be complete. I'm actually a little nervous for who they are going to choose for Jace Wayland. They cannot mess this up!! Everyone agrees how perfect Alex is for it though -- he looks exactly as the author describes. I have to do two pictures because he's that hot. It's amusing too, because I usually am more attracted to the dark-hair kind of guys. But he has that raw sex appeal that makes me squeal!! Maybe it's because Jace, the character, looks so much like him in my mind and his character is so hot - just the way he acts will have you dying.
2. Next is the pictures from Claudia - phatpuppyart. http://phatpuppy.deviantart.com/ She has facebook, and other sources. The name is kind of weird, but she is honestly amazing. Her work is beyond beautiful and it blows me away every single time! She makes a lot of cover art for books, recently for an author named Amanda Hocking who is a self-publishing author and is making so much money just from selling her books on kindle! It's amazing really. Anyways, Claudia is very talented, and I've actually contacted her and the exciting news is she said she would be more than happy to make cover art for my first novel!! I've already picked a few of her pieces already - but for my debut novel I think she is going to make one just for me. It's so exciting and it makes the process real. So go check out her work if you haven't already! Because these small pictures I have placed on this post, doesn't do her justice in the slightest.
3. This one is kind of silly but I love: Snowmen. I think snowmen are so cute!! We have them all over our house and anything to do with them I simply love!!
Another silly thing I love is crayons. Seriously, how much fun is coloring? Maybe that's another reason I want to be a kindergarten teacher - because then I get to color all day and express my creativity! There is nothing like a fresh box of crayons - all the colors... yup obsessed with them :) I always watch on TV how things are made, and one day I saw a special on crayons; it truly is amazing how they make things. Mesmerizing if you ask my opinion.
4. My latest book I'm reading is:
This book is actually really informative and just a positive reminder that you can do anything you put your heart and mind to. Writing Fiction for Dummies, is the first "dummies" book I've ever read. I actually really like it and like how it's simple yet it really is helping me!! Already my writing skills have gotten better. But I still am probably going to take a creative writing class Spring semester just because... I really want to just worry because my schedule is already so action-packed with stupid math 4020 (it never ends) and student teaching which I'm thrilled about. But sometimes you need to fit in things that you love; that's the point of college is it not? Anyways, fantastic book and an easy read. I recommend to anyone who is thinking of getting published someday.
5. And last but certaintly not least is this picture and the idea of HOPE:
I found it the other day and just had to put it somewhere on my blog!! Recently talking so much about hope, I thought it went perfectly. It isn't the picture I desperately love, it's the "idea." Hope is so powerful and everyone should have hope in their daily lives. Without it can be a very scary thing... with it can make all the differences in the world. So I hope you find your little jar of hope and make your dreams come true.
