Through no fault of her own, my dear friend [livejournal.com profile] bnharrison, author of the as-yet-unsold but thoroughly brilliant YA novel FIND ME HERE (which some may remember me raving about on Twitter) has just found herself without a place to live for the time being.

With her characteristic wry humour, [livejournal.com profile] bnharrison is trying to make the best of the situation, remarking that it's one way of "expanding my understanding of the human experience, which is never to be sniffed at, if you’re an author." She is continuing to look for work in her field (which is working with autistic children) or any other opportunity that may come her way, and she's determined to stick it out in her current location because it really is where she feels she belongs. However, I'm sure you can imagine how scary and overwhelming it is to be without any place to live, even temporarily.

It's not in [livejournal.com profile] bnharrison's nature to take without giving, so she is offering to make thank-you dolls for anyone who cares to make a donation toward her living fund, as you can see in her public post here. If you haven't seen the delightful dolls that she's made for me in the past, here are some examples:

Click for cuteness! )

You get the idea. She's a talented lady.

So if you know [livejournal.com profile] bnharrison, or even if you don't, please consider dropping by her journal entry and showing her a little support.

ETA: Crisis averted: [livejournal.com profile] bnharrison is moving into an apartment this weekend. Thanks to all who helped out!

Got two fantastic packages in the mail today, just in time for Christmas.

First, a lovely calendar from [livejournal.com profile] avarill full of wild animal photographs, which my kids were very impressed by -- all the more so when I told them "Aunt Sylvia" took the photos herself!

Second, a ginormous box from [livejournal.com profile] cesario, which was full of FANTABULOUS BOOTY including at least three kinds of homemade fudge (NOM NOM NOM), a copy of Writing Down the Bones, a canister of fancy tea (Ginger Peach, YUM), her old CD player (since she overheard me lamenting that mine had died) and -- AND AND AND --

Cut so I don't EXPLODE all over your Friends Page with the sheer unadulterated squee of it -- oh, and because there are pics, too )

Seriously, I am overwhelmed. Thank you SO much, both of you!
She made a Knife doll.

And she is just perfect. I am flabbergasted by her brilliance. Go and see!
Thanks to the brilliant and talented [livejournal.com profile] cesario, and no thanks to Canada Post for hanging onto the package for so long --

FANDOM DOLLS ARE LOVE )

Now I just have to find the right place to display them. Thank you thank you thank you, [livejournal.com profile] cesario!
