Holiday Events

It's been a busy November! Wordstock was tons of fun, and it was also great to attend the annual conference of the Publishers Association of the West here in Portland. I saw so many people from the past (you know who you are!), I kept falling into a time warp and forgetting where I was.

There is a lot to look forward to still in December. The first couple weeks will be crazy with craft fairs and open houses. If you're in Portland, be sure to visit me at one of these great events:
