Have you been spooned by love? *grin*
In preparation for a conference next week (if you’re in Atlanta, stop by! There’s a public book signing Saturday afternoon, and I’ll be giving these one-of-a-kind spoons to fans), I’ve been decorating 260 wooden spoons. That’s right. 260 wooden spoons. How many wooden spoons does an Ana need? MORE! 😀
The lovely Heather Fortman gave me the suggestion for personalizing the spoons, and I picked up a simple woodburning (pyrography if we want to be fancy) kit. I was terrified of ruining good wooden spoons (a spanking offense, for sure!), so it took me a while to plug in the iron and apply it to wood. The above picture shows my very first marks. You can tell on the side where I had trouble getting an “A” and then where the tip wobbled throughout the entire name. (Why do I have such a long name? Argh!)
120 spoons later, this was my favorite of the bunch:
It’s a quote, of course, from Talia in Taliasman. (Still don’t have a release date, but we’re just waiting on the cover art.) “Yes, my queen,” says Talia as she mocks Vina’s authority. And then, ahh…yes, then we have the fun times.
