BLOBS #34 RESULTS

Happy Friday! Thanks for checking in.  What a  big week it has been, all thanks to - a very special delivery.  If you are a friend on my FB page feel free to skip ahead to BLOB designs.  If not, please read along.  My picture book proofs for THE LADYBUG RACE arrived for approval!   I think I broke all ripping-box-open speeds.   There was jumping,  high pitches were hit, then quiet reflection as I flipped through the bright pages.  What a journey this story has put me on. I am truly grateful for the diligent team at PomegranateKids and the incredible care THE LADYBUG RACE has received (a special thanks to Carey Hall!).

Yes - paper can be hugged.  THE LADYBUG RACE will be released in September 2015.  Updates and news will be announced via FB and Twitter.

On to BLOBS #34 results!  With less than a month now to a spring SCBWI conference, it is shift-into-high-gear mode to get my MUST DO's completed.  This means pencil sketches only for designs...enjoy.
