This Saturday is the Funky Finds Spring Fling! Two of our team members will be participating at the show, Book-Inz and What's My Future.

Since she's a newer member, I think this is the first blog mention for What's My FutureWhat's my Future specializes in Stationery and Calendars. I really love this Botanical Collection

I have to admit that even though I am an avid reader, I haven't read the Hunger Games series yet. But I know a lot of people who are fans who would love this Mockingjay Book-Inz
