Travels with my Kindle....

Even though I am an avid book fan (meaning, not just an avid reader; I love the physical book), my wonderful sons bought me a Kindle and I love it!!!
I find it so much easier (and quicker) to read because of being able to make the print larger and I love the fact that I have a built in dictionary! I read a lot of classics and older novels and there are so many wonderful words that are not used anymore, so, not only can I look up the meaning of the word, but I can list it for ease of reference at a later date!
I am in awe of this wonderful gadget.

So, I am going to blog about the books that I have been reading and show you photos of the Travels of my Kindle, on a regular basis.

This photo is under the shade of a majestic old pine, in a park in the Riverina where I love to sit and read :)

I have just done a quick course in PMC (Precious Metal Clay).  Wonderful stuff!
I will be (attempting - if time permits) to do more advanced courses and start producing some creative results from it all.
We are all creative in some way :)
Even if you think you're not, you are!  You just have to find your niche.  Being creative doesn't mean you have to make a future collectors item, it just means you have to make something with your own hands! It could be writing, sewing, knitting, woodwork, painting, metalwork, jewellery, sculpting or even making

coffee mugs. Try it.  It's a lot of fun and it's good for the soul.  Besides, who knows,  you just might create the next future "must have" collectable item!

Whether you think you can, or whether you think you can't...
either way, you are right.
