I am absolutely not over it yet, I've been on cloud nine all evening and I had to just tell someone. I love meeting authors, going to book events and all that jazz, but when it's an author I really admire...well, I get so excited I almost burst...and that is sort of how today went.
So, reasons today rocked? Let me count the ways...
1. My hair stayed in Cybelle ringlets all day and didn't even fall out (a small victory, but a victory nonetheless). I got to wear my Cybelle dress once more, and I am very flattered how many compliments I received on it! Ahh, all that swearing at the godawful satin being swallowed by my sewing machine was not in vain!
2. I got to spend the day with my wonderful other half who shares my love for the Shadowhunters series.
3. At my third attempt, I have made a hand sculpted replica of Tessa's clockwork angel necklace from the Infernal Devices.

|A new treasure for my collection.|
6. Against the odds, I managed to get the perfect present for a good friend of mine...
I think I shall be in my element for at least the next two weeks. But I am feeling newly inspired, which is exactly what I needed! I do believe my writers block has been cured and my motivation restored.
Though with a bit of luck....I will still have time to make a Tessa cosplay to go with that clockwork angel......
Love and tea,
I. I Laverick
