Moncy3 on Etsy

My friend and pen pal Claudia, easily one of the nicest people I have the good fortune to be a part of my life, has a fun blog and a wonderful Etsy shop, Moncy3.

If you like to write letters and cards, take a look at my lovely purchases from Claudia's shop. (And my mom would tell you that *everyone* needs some cards on hand to send a quick, thoughtful note. You really can make a difference by reaching out to someone with kind words.)

This is the beautiful wrapped package I found in my mail delivery. It felt like my birthday.

This is the content. Maya received the princess stationery for her birthday, and I've already used the camoflauge stationery with my soldier pen pals letters.

Claudia also holds a monthly drawing from shoppers at her site, with the lucky winner receiving the item of his/her choice, and we won for May! I say "we" because Maya is also pen pals with Claudia's daughter, who did the drawing, and Maya and I are convinced the pen pal friendship vibe caused her to draw my name.

I'll definitely be shopping at Claudia's Etsy site in the future, and I hope you give Moncy3 a look, too!

Here's the short set of questions I e-mailed to book club members yesterday, along with my own responses.

Did you have a favorite character, or one that spoke to you the most? Who and why?
The father with the burned hands is the one who stayed with me the most after reading the book.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
