Teaser Tuesday: blog signature and banner

I could never make anything right! At least, I tried. 🙂

Teaser Tuesday:

I’ve been trying to work on a banner for my blog for the past month or so, but I just can’t settle on the finality of it. I’m also working on a signature. I may need to redo it, but this is what I’ve got thus far:

OR…

I appreciate any form of feedback. 🙂

Books & Reviews 📚

Book #46: The Quilter’s Daughter

The second book of this three part series was the most intense yet.

Abby Miller keeps having recurring nightmares about a house on fire and a cat needing to get rescued. What she did not know was that this was a warning of things to come and those things ended up being a double tragedy.

Abby runs a quilt shop and is engaged to Lester Mast, a thoughtful, kind and compassionate man, who didn’t mind his fianceé going away to Lancaster County to care for her pregnant mother, Fannie (who is now married to Abraham Fisher). While there, however, Abby receives some very sad news: her quilt shop has burned to the ground with Lester in it. Lester had run into the shop to try and save some quilts and didn’t make it back out the second trip inside.

Dealing with a double tragedy caused Abby to question God and she eventually stopped reading the Bible and praying. It took some time in Montana to get herself in order. When she returns home, she is ready to face the world again and Matthew, who was harboring a huge crush on her like forever, finally gets around to confessing his feelings for her.

Meantime, Jim is still trying to come to terms with stealing baby Zach (named Jimmy after he was kidnapped) and is becoming more and more isolated from wife, Linda, who has learned to trust God again. Jim has some personal problems to deal with of his own, but he does not trust God as he believed that everything that he owned is his. I can’t wait to conclude this series!

Inspiration & Words

Word of the Week: Kalopsia

It was love at first sight with this attractive Greek-looking word. *sigh*

Kalopsia is a combination of the Greek roots kallos (beauty) and opsis (sight), so technically in English, it means beautiful sight. Even the word is beautiful. Let me take a moment to reflect on the beauty of this word.

I love coming across strange words! They intrigue me and I sometimes add them to my vocabulary. So here is my attempt at using this beautiful word in a sentence:

She was obviously suffering from kalopsia for she saw the world in him although he treated her harshly.

365 Days of Writing

August 22nd: Viral

 :

The New York Times is going to feature your blog on its home page, and you’ve been asked to publish a new post — it’ll be the first thing tens of thousands of new readers see. Write it.

Blogging is rewarding

When I was around eight or so (forgive me, I am bad at remembering important details), I used to find myself writing in my spare time and during classes. It’ll take a few years for me to realize that it was God who gave me this amazing gift (although I make a lot of grammatical errors). I discovered blogging when I started work at the Caribbean’s top hospitality and tourism library. At that time, I was also a HUGE football fan girl, so I started blogging about football. 

Then came La Petit Muse.

My blog is random. You’re not going to find an orderly conduct of topics, no, sir! When you read my blog, New Yorkers, you’re going to find a blend of things that make me who I am, what I am becoming, and what I left behind in order to follow in His footsteps. At one point, I wanted to start all over again with a new blog, but I’ve decided to stick with La Petit Muse as it is an insight into my life.
