I owe photographer Bob Cross a huge apology for not properly crediting his amazing Peas and Honey photo below. I'm ashamed that I did not realize what I was doing. I have contacted Bob with an apology and he has now given me permission to keep this image in my post. I will be much more careful in the future and encourage all other bloggers to do the same.
Today is March 24th. Yesterday, the 23rd I was reminded that 23 is my lucky number and has been ever since I was in Mrs. Holstrom's 3rd grade classroom (#23) My lucky number has served me well and helped me win no less than two "guess a number between 1 and 100" contests.Yesterday was a CRAZY, BUSY, GOOD and LUCKY day — as are all days! I feel very lucky when I wake up and realize that I am still here and still breathing!
Today does not look anything like spring out my window. It is sleeting (is that a word?) In any case, I hope it is fleeting. I am ready for spring!
Today I am packing and preparing myself to leave for Toronto, Canada (very early in the morning) to spend time with and speak to a group of Canadian retailers. I always look forward to these kinds of events.
Today I have appointments for two parent/teacher conferences and will be making good on a promise to visit the book fair. Do you remember the absolute excitement of your grade school book fair day? I do. I once saved up and purchased a book of funny poems, titled A Big Fat Ugly Man Came Up and Tied his Horse to Me. I just searched for it and can't find it anywhere — but I will never forget this book. It made me laugh so hard and I read it over and over again. One of the poems inside went like this:
but it keeps them on my knife.
Today I had the HUGE opportunity of being interviewed by Michelle Hainer, a freelance author for InStyle magazine. InStyle has a new column called "Got An Hour" and we chatted about how to deal with hoards of photographs in short chunks of time. Hello — this is my reality and the only way I can do what I do.
Michelle btw, is the author of what looks like two really great QUIZ books for teen girls.
Today I'm going to attempt to catch up on posting 365 photos and updating my Creativity Project. I got my computer back Friday and got back online yesterday — thanks Erik!
TOMORROW (I promise) I'm giving away THREE copies of Photo Play, the NEW Special Issue from Simple Scrapbooks!
