found!

finally!

that's me trying to remain calm

look what i spotted (finally!) out at barnes & noble the other day! it's the first time that i had seen my book "out in the world", and it was pretty exciting. we walked right in and didn't even touch it, just quickly snapped the picture. i love how it's right there surrounded by books by friends. there's water paper paint, another quarry book, by heather smith jones who is also a contributor to my book. above my book, you'll see mb shaw's book, flavor for mixed media, then, to the right is kari chapin's (who is also a contributor) book the handmade marketplace. painted pages is certainly in good company on the shelf! after i did a little happy dance, i signed the copies they had in stock. to prove i was the author of the book the woman checked the author photo in the back of the book before i signed them. funny. it's certainly all pretty surreal even though i was holding painted pages in my hands!

a great big (virtual) hug and thank you to stephanie levy, a lovely friend, artist and contributor who blogged all about my book today! be sure to check it out! she posted a whole bunch of great sneak peeks and had some really sweet things to say about the book. what a treat it is for me to have her highlighted in my book! check out stephanie's gorgeous collages here.

what a nice way to wrap up this crazy month of may! thanks so much stephanie! i feel so lucky!

hope you had a nice long weekend! i am pretty tuckered out since jesse was away for a few days for work and i was on full time toddler patrol. phew! ada and i had such fun together, lots of swinging and climbing stairs, but we certainly both missed having dada around!

be sure to tune in tomorrow morning... i have some fun news to share! :)
