New On My Nightstand

For Christmas I got two new books to add to the pile on my nightstand.


Aren't the covers alone just gorgeous!

Makes me want to get into my pajamas (oh, I am already wearing them..and I have been all day), make some tea, crank the heating blanket up and climb into bed.

If I am not reading my new books I will be working on an on-line art class I am taking from the super talented Misty Mawn.


I do not have a lot of extra time to take classes like this and I have been really looking forward to it.

Anyone else taking this class?

I have to admit that I am already behind on day two but I am ok with that!

What are you reading?

    oh I just read the comment above. I checked out cleopatra’s daughter. Haven’t read it yet though. I’m supposed to read The Poisonwood Bible for bookclub. I haven’t started it yet though. I’m doing the brave girls class. 🙂 Enjoy your class and your books!

    Looks great! I LOVE to read as well. Unlike some people, I buy alot of books, and reread them over and over again. Do you do that? I’m also a magazine junkie. I get them, tear out the ideas that spark my creativity, and put them into one large binder of ideas. How do you hold onto your creative muses?

    Oh, I love For the Love Of Old…. such a beauty of a book! Right now, I’m rereading the Coconut Oil Miracle… there’s so much jammed into that little book and Lucia Lucia. It’s nice to get lost inside the pages…

    I have 7 books waiting for me on my nightstand! And I think it’s a good day to stay in one’s pajamas:) Happy reading to you!

    I am at home in bed with my heated blanket, but I have the flu 🙁 I wish I felt like reading, but at least I feel like I can go blogging, alittle 🙂
    Enjoy your class and your books!

    You’ll have to post pictures of some of your art – it sounds like a really amazing class! I’m doing the brave girls class right now as well and really enjoying the “art” time!

    I am reading Sandra Lee’s Bio called “Made From Scratch”(She is a cook on Food Network) and I am reading “Blogging for Dummies” since I am new to the blogging world.
    Happy Reading to you. Those books look interesting.

  10. My next book purchase is You Had me at Woof ~ I have a gift card I am just itching to use. No courses for me ~ I will be busy at the sewing machine making curtains as I am itching to start our master b/r makeover.

    Love your nightstand reading choice, what a great Christmas gift. For the love of pld is great!! enjoy it as much as I do 🙂
    Enjoy your art class Jeanne, although I am not sure you need the class, your work stands alone and needs no improvement.
    Altering your own style with passion.

  12. Lara

    I should be taking this class…I just love her. JUST read about her last night in Somerset—she is a “family first” girl like us ladies and I appreciate that. Can’t wait to hear how it goes for you!
    I finished “The Happiness Project” and even emailed Gretchen for the resolutions chart..umm..not doing well (obviously) on the going to bed early one 🙂

  13. Dearest sweet Jeanne, those books look soo interesting! Awww im a bit late in discovering sweet inspiring misty! Her e-course sounds so interesting and too bad im a little late and it’s full! I hope you enjoy your e-course and have a lovely merry inspiring time! Love to you!

    Oh, I would love to take Misty’s e-course, but just have no time (or energy :). I would love to take a course with her in person someday, which would be even better. Well, a girl can dream, right? p.s. do tell us all about it and show, show, show…

  15. Amy

    I would love to take her class.She is amazing. Right now I’m doing Soul Restoration and loving the creative piece.

    I am reading too many books to mention really….but the more exciting thing is that I am taking the on line Brave Girls class!!!! I am feeling overwhelmed by it and challenged by setting aside time just for me but I am BRAVE and I WILL do it!!! Your blog feels like an old friend and I am always so happy to return no matter how much time I have been away. xoxo

  17. Good for you! Trying to decide between 3 online adventures: Misty’s class, Dina Wakley’s class/es, and Brave Girl. Not sure yet what I want to do….Brave Girl sounds great, but I really want something art-driven.
    Though I normally don’t comment, I do love your blog. Keep us updated on your experience in Misty’s class 🙂
