Confession time. This post has nothing to do with writing or reading.

I just gotta say it: I love rings.

And not ordinary ones.

Crazy, kitschy, funky rings. Big and loud.

I’ve spent too much time trying to act my age. And why? I’m a picture book author! I should be able to wear Legos on my fingers, right? And polymer clay sushi. And dictionaries. Yes, dictionaries.

Let your inner goofball shine!

The Etsy addiction continues.

This witty “booklace” conversation piece by Etsy artisan JOYouz, otherwise known as The Quill Chick, features an inspiring Robin Williams quote.

Yep, we’re all mad here.

Before you toss that rejection letter into the fire, consider recycling it. But don’t bundle it with the newspaper and set it on the curb.

Lemons beget lemonade. Paper begets paper beads.

They say the more rejections you accumulate, the closer you are to becoming published. So show off all those “not right for our imprint” letters! Cut them up and roll them into jewelry. This tutorial from Paper University will show you how.
