Where Treetops Glisten

I just finished reading Where Treetops Glisten by Tricia Goyer, Cara utman, and Sarah Sundin.  Here is my review on this book.

Where Treetops Glisten is a delightful book.  It contains three romantic, Christian Christmas stories about the Turner family siblings and is set during World War II.  The prologue sets the stage for the story.  Starts out with the Grandmother getting the family house ready for Christmas.  In the Turner family is the grandmother, mother, father, and their three children.  Each story revolves around a different sibling.  There is then a epilogue at the end of the book that wraps up all the stories.  I really enjoyed the first two stories in the book.  They were sweet and romantic with a lovely Christmas spirit.  The third book was more religious and had more serious overtones.  Overall, I really enjoyed this book.  It was an easy book to read and can easily be finished in a couple of hours.  I will look into reading more stories by Tricia Goyer, Cara Putman, and Sarah Sundin.  If you like romantic Christmas stories, you will enjoy this book.  It will definitely put you into the Christmas spirit.  I received a free copy of this book from Blogging For Books in exchange for an honest review.

I also just finished reading Mr. Miracle by Debbie Macomber.  It was a cute story, but I found that the ending was too quick.  It left the story a little unfinished.  I hope that she will write another story with some of the same characters so that their story lines will be finished.  I would like to know what happens with veteran and the young man who just got out of jail. 

So many wonderful books came out this week. I think I purchased ten new books.  My favorite so far is One Potion in the Grave by Heather Blake.  Delightful cozy mystery series with magic. 

How did everyone enjoy craft day on HSN?  So many wonderful new products on the market.    The Cricut Explore looks interesting.  I have a Silhouette machine, though, and I am not sure if I need another cutting machine (though I have a lot of Cricut cartridges).  I like that you do not have to use the overlays or cartridges anymore.  My favorite new gadget on the market is the Craftwell eBrush Airbrush System with Accessories.  It uses your markers to airbrush with stencils, die cuts, or just to color a page.  It is like the Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer Tool only on steroids!  Check out this tool if you get a chance on  If you like to purchase to purchase the latest craft supplies (especially Tim Holtz products) and want a great price, please check out Molly's Square.  They get some of the latest products and have a great prices.  Molly's Square is based out of Florida.  The shipping is also reasonable. 

I am trying to find time to work in my studio.  We had to rearrange our house recently and my studio is a little bit of a mess.  I am trying to get everything organized.  The room I got is bigger, but some of the old furniture is still in it.  So I have a bigger room but with less space!  I hope that makes sense.

Keep crafting and reading!  Have a great weekend.
