Here’s what I’ve been browsing this week.

I like these Spool of Thread pins from Courtney Watson’s shop TwIsTeD. Very cute.

I love the idea of giving a funky clipboard to a teacher or nurse or someone who’d use it. I want one of these for myself, Kute Klipboards by Amy has lots of fun designs like this one.

This book creeped me out. It was riveting, and the first person narration was perfect for this story. Teenage Claudine wakes one morning to find her alcoholic mother has disappeared…again. Claudine tells everyone her mother finally checked herself into rehab, and over time she convinces herself until a really freaky ending reveals everything. Claudine’s struggle to keep her life together while living alone in her mother’s trailer is destroying her. She is slowly drowning in her attempts to keep everything clean and perfect until her mother returns. Buried by Robin Merrow MacCready is a fantastic read.
