Waiting On Wednesday #145: THE IRON WARRIOR (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #3) by Julie Kagawa (YA)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This is where we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released!!! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night!!!
And, quite possibly, to make our shelves look pretty too :) 

What I'm currently waiting for... 

The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #3
by Julie Kagawa
Release date: October 27th, 2015
Published by Harlequin Teen
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Format: Paperback, eBook


The Iron Prince - my nephew - betrayed us all. 

He killed me. 

Then, I woke up.

Waking after a month on the brink of death, Ethan Chase is stunned to learn that the Veil that conceals the fey from human sight was temporarily torn away. Although humankind's glimpse of the world of Faery lasted just a brief moment, the human world has been cast into chaos, and the emotion and glamour produced by fear and wonder has renewed the tremendous power of the Forgotten Queen. 
Now, she is at the forefront of an uprising against the courts of Summer and Winter - a reckoning that will have cataclysmic effects on the Nevernever. 

Leading the Lady's Forgotten Army is Keirran himself: Ethan's nephew, and the traitor son of the Iron Queen, Meghan Chase. 
To stop Keirran, Ethan must disobey his sister once again as he and his girlfriend, Kenzie, search for answers long forgotten. In the face of unprecedented evil and unfathomable power, Ethan's enemies must become his allies, and the world of the fey will be changed forevermore. 

Why I'm waiting for THE IRON WARRIOR... 

I've been waiting, and waiting, and anxiously waiting for this book!!!

Book 2 had one of the biggest cliffhangers I have ever read!!!

I NEEEEEEEEEED this book the minute it is set wild and free into the world!!!

I don't even care that my ramblings right now don't make any sense at all... 
so sorry if you have no idea what I am talking about! BUT... If you haven't read this series.
I don't know if we can be friends. You're missing out on some of the most epic characters to have ever been brought to life!!!

For the love of all fae!!!!... 

SO, what are you anxiously waiting for???!!!

"Girl Talk" Planner Fun with Brimbles Planner Box

Hello there, friends! 
I'm popping in today to share the things I created using my September Brimbles Personal Ring Planner Box!

Please be sure to swing by Mrs. Brimble's blog for more details and links to products :) 

I was inspired by all the pretty colors in the October Afternoon "Girl Talk" Vintage Paper Pack to create new dashboard and 5 dividers for my personal ring planner... 

For my dashboard, I used the Dear Lizzy "Documentary" Stamp Set

... and added an October Afternoon "Girl Talk" Vintage Badge to embellish one of my punched flowers; and I just love how my dashboard greets me every time I open my planner :) 

I also added in Mrs. Brimble's "The Mix Tape of My Life" laminated dashboard as a second dashboard... 

... because who doesn't need TWO dashboards?! lol
It's laminated and perfect for extra sticky notes, etc.
Also, this mixtape image just brings back so many memories from my childhood, I was a lucky girl to be able to grow up in the '80s :) 

For my dividers, I used the project life and 2x2 sized cutouts in the paperback as my main focus...
as well as adding in the washi tape that came in the box... 

I'm always afraid of cutting down my pretty papers and patterns, but once I get going I am motivated to use it all! Never be afraid to try something new or add in new elements! 

Mrs. Brimbles boxes always comes with a special note from Anna herself, which is such a sweet personal touch that makes me feel like she's a dear friend of mine for ages! 

I love the typewriter watercolor that she had done for her card this month, so much so, that I had to borrow fellow designer Geraldine's idea and framed it so I can add it to my craft room's window shelf! I adore how it looks!  

And here is a peek at my precious leftover scraps! 

I will be incorporating these little bits into my monthly/weekly pages... and I have special plans for the October Afternoon "Saturday Morning" sticker sheet that came too - reminds me of my Saturday cartoon mornings with great big bowls of cereal, lol! 
But, I will share those projects another time ;) 

I hope something here inspires you to get creative today!
Thank you for letting me share my projects... Margie :)
