Save the Date - Camy's Patreon launch

My Patreon will launch in 2 weeks! I took all the results of the poll and I have hopefully created fun and appealing tiers. About my Patreon: I'm trying something new for the next 6-7 months. If it works, I'll continue, but if I end up not liking it, I'll stop it in September or October. I will be starting a monthly subscription membership on a new Patreon account. I will be posting the chapters of my current book ( Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 7 ) so you can read ahead of when the ebook will be edited and published. My current plan is to post 1-2 chapters weekly. One reason I’m switching things up is that I want to get closer to my readers and build a tighter, more intimate community with you. You can comment on each chapter of my book, give a reaction, ask a question, or even correct mistakes. My books will become a dialogue with you. If you subscribe to my Patreon, you'll be charged monthly and have access to all the benefits for the tier you subscribe to. Th

Sunday Prayer

Captain’s Log, Stardate 02.05.2006

Leave any prayer requests in the comments and I’ll be praying this week. You don’t have to be Christian to leave a prayer request. If you’d rather not advertise to everyone on the blogosphere, just leave an unspoken prayer request or email me.

If you don’t see yourself and you want to, email me or leave a comment. Not to be mean or anything, but if you don't email me or comment to update your prayer request, I'm only going to pray 3 Sundays.

Lord, in your wisdom, give us light. You are God of all the earth.

Lord, please give Heather wisdom about whether she should get a new computer. I pray everything works out for her. Thank you for healing her from her cold.

Please be with Pammer and help her to overcome her fear and doubts. Give her strength so that she will no longer be paralyzed by them. Please help her to finish her rewrites by the end of February. Be with Jules, also, and heal her.

Please heal Squirl. Give the doctors wisdom to know how to treat her, and I pray the surgery can be scheduled quickly.

Lord, I pray the SW series will be picked up, although we bow to your will.

Help Sharon in her writing—give her wisdom, grace, affirmation, strength.

Give Charise direction and guidance in her job search.

Please continue to help Amber to heal.

Be with Gina and help her to know your will for her. Help her as she waits for responses, and direct her to the agent you want for her.

Continue to be with Crystal and give her affirmation in her writing.

Please help MaryG’s daughter’s eye heal quickly.

Help Paula to continue to lean on you. Give her wisdom to prioritize and a heart able to relinquish it all to you.

I pray you will heal Malia’s knee without the need for surgery. Please work everything out with her insurance, too.

Please be with Darlene’s friend Val and her daughter. Help them to know what to do so that her daughter can find wholeness in you. Cover them both.

Be with Mok in her work, her writing, and her career direction. Be with her as she waits for the March 1st crossover date.

Lead and guide LaShaunda as she starts to send her stuff out.

Father, thank you so much for Christina and all you are doing in her and through her in Japan. Please empower her to reach out to others for your glory. Be with her and give her confidence at her open class in March.

Continue to keep Audra in good health, and I pray for a smooth delivery.

Continue to bless Margo’s Bible study and speak to each of the women about who they are in you.

Prepare Lynette for Mt. Hermon and give her wisdom and energy for her new projects.

Please continue to help Tiff in her new job, and be leading her as she writes.

Father, thank you for Tina’s request from that publishing house. Please help her as she prepares her house for sale, and anoint her manuscript as she adds words and revises.

Father, I lift up Missy to you and ask you to hold her close. Lead her and guide her in what she needs to do. Give her strength for what you ask of her, and assurance of your presence with her. Please provide for her family and her writing.

Father, please heal Dream from this icky cold and help her in all the things she needs to do with work and writing and family. Give her strength and energy and assurance that you got her back.

Our holy and loving Father, I lift up Mariah to you. Thank you for bringing her to Ruthy's church. She is in so much pain, Lord. Please touch her and hold her and heal her. God, help her to realize that she can fall completely in your arms and find forgiveness, strength, peace, and a brand new start. Lord God, please keep your hand over her and bring her out of the bad situations she's in. Rescue this beautiful daughter, Lord. Thank you for loving her so much.

Lord, I lift up my friends married to non-believers. We pray for their salvation, and I ask for hope for them this week.

Lord, bless your persecuted church, give them power and strength.

Please continue to help me heal from surgery, Lord. Please also help me to be more disciplined in all aspects of my life.

Holy God, we are your people and we praise you. Amen.

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

What are you reading? A Thousand Li

At the moment, I’m reading the Chinese fantasy series, A Thousand Li by Tao Wong, set in a version of historical China. It’s what’s called a “Cultivation” novel where the character does some woo-woo stuff and moves energy around in his body and eventually is able to do some cool magic. I didn’t expect to like this series so much! The first book is a little weaker compared to the next several volumes, but it’s still very enjoyable, and I was hooked pretty easily. I’m listening to it on audiobook, and the narrator, Travis Baldree, is AMAZING! He does the Chinese names really well, and the different voices are fantastic. What are you reading today?

What are you crafting today?

I’m not making anything special, just a ribbed top to match my ribbed skirt. It’s based off of a vintage pattern from the 1940s, but altered for my size. What are you making today? Post a comment!

Earthquake in San Jose

Captain's Log, Supplemental Some of you might have heard about the 5.2 earthquake in San Jose last night. Just to let you know, we’re okay. The house started shaking, and after 17 years in California, I know by now to run for a doorway. The shaking was over in a few seconds. No big deal. Not even a broken plate or glass. A couple CDs fell off my shelf, nothing else. Even before the shaking completely stopped, I’m standing in the doorway to my office like a good Californian, and I see Captain Caffeine walk into the foyer! “What are you doing? You’re supposed to be under a desk!” “Uh ... I was keeping the cabinets from falling.” (Translation: he was holding the cabinets closed so the glasses wouldn’t rain on the kitchen floor, which in hindsight was thoughtful of him, but I’d rather have glass over the floor instead of a ceiling tile falling on his head!) My friend Dineen lives closer to the epicenter, so I called to see how she was. Everything was fine at her house. “In fact,” she s

Irrational loves

Captain's Log, Stardate 10.09.2007 Today I went to lunch with my friend Dineen, and afterwards, we headed into Borders just to browse. Borders has this section full of cute little notebooks. Small ones, big ones, colored paper ones, you name it. They also have pens and wallets and zippered bags and iPod cases. I must have spent at least thirty minutes just going ga-ga over the stupid little notebooks! What is it with notebooks and me? I can count the number of them that I’ve actually filled on the fingers of one hand. I have them all over the house, most with only a page or two written on, and an entire BOX of new ones in my closet. And I keep coveting more! This thing with notebooks is completely irrational. I cannot understand it, and I cannot stop it. I also cannot seem to fill them with any speed. And considering how much I like to talk, that’s pathetic. I should at least be able to spout nothings enough to fill a few. But when I open it to write inside, a part of my brain sud

Grace Livingston Hill romances free to read online

I wanted to update my old post on Grace Livingston Hill romances because now there are tons more options for you to be able to read her books for free online! I’m a huge Grace Livingston Hill fan. Granted, not all her books resonate with me, but there are a few that I absolutely love, like The Enchanted Barn and Crimson Roses . And the best part is that she wrote over 100 books and I haven’t yet read them all! When I have time, I like to dive into a new GLH novel. I like the fact that most of them are romances, and I especially appreciate that they all have strong Christian themes. Occasionally the Christian content is a little heavy-handed for my taste, but it’s so interesting to see what the Christian faith was like in the early part of the 20th century. These books are often Cinderella-type stories or A Little Princess (Frances Hodgson Burnett) type stories, which I love. And the best part is that they’re all set in the early 1900s, so the time period is absolutely fasci
