15. OC Book Festival!

Had a great time at the OC Children's Book Festival! Here's a picture of the authors and illustrators at the JacketFlap booth. I sat in between Erik Brooks and Dan Santat. What beautiful books they both had. And, they were very helpful when my posters and things started blowing away! It was very windy! :&) Had a ton of girls making Princess Crowns. So fun! Sold all my books I brought too! Other author/illustrators in this pic are Merrily Kutner, Susan Lendoth, and Ashley Wolf. Great day, but I sure was tired when I finished!

22. A Sneek Peek!

Here's what I've been keeping under wraps all year! My new little princess ornaments for Kurt Adler!!! I am thrilled! Only thing that's a bummer is that they won't be in stores until 2010. Still, it's been a lot of fun on my part creating these little girls! I'll show better images soon.

I just love it!!! And, with PRINCESS PARTY, my new book from Putnam debuting August 20th, I am thrilled. I hope you enjoy as well!
