So, I was sitting in the car-rider line today and decided to do a video because…well, because I could. I was reading Death at the Midnight Dragonfly (STILL because I have mentioned before how slow of a reader I am) and noticed that I read aloud. This might have something to do with the reason I read so slow. I have to get the character’s accents right. It’s a thing of mine. If I can’t get into them, I can’t get into the books. I think that’s why I love audio books so much. The person has already done all the work for me. HA!
So, sitting in car rider’s, reading out loud to myself…yep. I do the same once a week with kids in my daughter’s class. I sometimes get WAY too loud when I read It can’t be helped though. I really get into it. How do you read? Do you go lightning fast in your head or do you read aloud in different voices as the people in your life stare at you strangely?
You should buy Death At the Midnight Dragonfly and read it to me too! Just click on the book and go buy you a copy. Then, tell me what you think.
I love a good mystery of course and mystery parties just seem like the next step. My daughter’s upcoming birthday inspired my craft for this week as well as my good author friend, Vicki Vass and her amazingly titled book, “Key To A Murder.”
So, today you’ll need key charms that you can get at any hobby or craft store. Do make sure to see if they have a coupon….that’s the KEY to a good bargain. I got mine for 40% off. You’ll also need a good craft glue, paint brush and enough toothpicks for whatever you plan to stick these in.
Tiny Key Charms
Good Music (might I suggest Pearl Jam?)
You can use these as cupcake picks, picks for a cheese and fruit trays at your book club gatherings and whatever else you can think of to stick these in; as the possibilities are endless. The KEY is to have fun!
I hope you enjoy the video, try this craft, check out Vicki’s book and enter my contest. I’m giving away a set of my keys I used and Vicki is throwing in her book “Key To A Murder.” WOW!
