A Dream Realized!

I got a trade book assignment today!! Yipeeee! The story is absolutely adorable too - written in such fantastic verse you want to sing along as you read. I have no idea how much info I'm allowed to release so I'll just keep the details a secret for now.

So... this is what it's like when all the hard work pays off! I'm going to go celebrate by um...well....reading the last half of the last Harry Potter book (you know, since I'm such a party animal) ;-)

Or maybe I'm too excited to concentrate on reading a book? Ha!

Paige - fantastic! You have worked so hard to get to this point and I swear, girl, it is all downhill from here. You are going to be one of those artists that we see over and over again as we buy books for our kids, our grandkids, our great-grandkids...
