first. the good news. there is a scrapbooking store opening up in my own little town. a scrapbook store in ripon? yes. it's true. i saw the storefront with my very own two little eyes. how will it stay in business, you ask? oh...because i will shop there. and that is all that little store will need. scary. i know.
now. the bad news. one of my favorite authors passed away last week. madeleine l'engle. seriously. i am so sad. she and her books shaped my childhood.
i'm off to go read "a ring of endless light" in mourning.
