This week at Riley and Company is all about Fairy Tales! The challenge is to show us your creations with your favorite Fairy Tale!
I’m an avid reader – I read pretty much a book a day. Yes, a day! :) I have a voracious appetite for books and have since I was a little girl. Whenever we moved, which was often, the first thing I’d do was peddle my bike around town to find the library and join up! Books are truly one of the most magical gifts we can give ourselves.
Truly, my ideal Fairy Tale would be a stack of ‘to be read’ books beside me on a chaise lounge at the beach under the first palm tree I find! You can have the Castles and Prince Charmings (I already have one of those, too!) and I'll take my books! I take a weekly trip is to the library where I’ll browse through the selected titles of the books on my long list, usually from my Goodreads lists. Yes, I am OBSESSED with Goodreads and have been since I joined a few years ago :) I spend hours at the library and browsing bookstores – new and secondhand – for hours on end just getting lost in the books … some of which just happen to jump into my basket :)
Okay, I digress! For the new Riley and Company Challenge this week, the theme is Fairy Tales. I made 2 different types of bookmarks ~ one corner bookmark for the books I read in vast quantity and one kid's bookmark for my son.
I used Sophie's waiting for a prince. And my son is so crazy about Riley - he always asked me to stamp out a few extra images for him to color up as well so I created a bookmark of his very own. He loved it! We read every night without fail and it's a joy to pass on the baton of reading to my little ones (and the teenagers that aren't so little!) :) For this one, I used Riley and the beanstalk.
