I’m just popping in to say hello. Just enough time for a little game of peek-a-boo. 🙂
I have so much to tell you… SO MUCH! But that will have to wait for a week or two, since I am currently on vacation with my family and will not be spending much time on a computer.
I just had to stop by for a few minutes though, because I’m showing up in lots of fun places online and I wanted you to know about them.
1. I am very happy and excited that I had a chance to be interviewed by the amazing, creative, and warm-hearted Jamie Ridler! Though the interview took place a few weeks ago, I’m today’s guest on her Creative Living podcast. I have long been a fan of Jamie’s, so I’m tickled pink to be her guest. Listen to the podcast, and you’ll hear a little secret about something I’ll be working on this summer – for a Fall launch!
2. Another one of my favourite people online is Christine, a.k.a. Blisschick. Christine recently honoured me with the WarriorChick award! Christine has been a source of strength for me in some really tough times, so when she honours the strength in me with this award, I can’t help but feel humbled by it.
3. And last but not least, I’m also rather fond of Jane Steen, a fellow writer who I had the pleasure of hanging out with in Chicago back in the Spring. We had a wonderful visit to the Art Institute, followed by a photo op at the giant Bean and then a glass of wine. Jane honoured me with a “Versatile Blogger” award this week, and once again, I’m honoured! Blushing, in fact.
Once I’m back to more regular blogging, I’ll try to pass on these awards, but this little game of peek-a-boo is over for now and I have to go back to hanging out with my family now. I hope you’re all enjoying the summer!
p.s. The delightful model for the above photos is my nephew Jack. We had lots of fun together at this year’s Folk Festival, playing with one of my Indian scarves. Just for fun, here are a few more photos from the Folk Festival.
