Wow! It has been quite some time since I updated, but I had to check in because I’m getting so excited for the SCBWI conference! It is just under two weeks away at this point, and things are getting very real.
Shortly after my last post, I shared a creation I made with my #kidlitart folks on Twitter.
At some point each Thursday, our conversation always seems to come back to sweets. Everyone loved it! I ended up ordering a batch of pins with the design on them to take with me to the conference in L.A. The arrived in the mail a couple weeks ago!
I also managed to get my postcards ordered, and they arrived on this past Thursday! I’m pretty happy with my design, and so excited to have the cards in hand.
My portfolio is still not completely assembled. I have all 12 pieces prepped and ready for printing for my portfolio. Getting those printed and mounted is next on my to-do list. I’m hoping to have that done by the end of this week.
I’ve been in my new job for three full weeks now, and I’m very happy with it so far. The people have all been nice, but we stay so busy that we don’t get to socialize a whole lot. The plus side to that is I love being busy since it makes the day fly by. I did get to chat with some people at the company’s “Christmas in July” party this past Friday. Apparently December is such a busy time there that there is no time for parties then, so they celebrate during the summer. It was nice to get to know people a little better!
Speaking of getting to know people, my 10 year high school reunion was yesterday and it was great getting to get reacquainted with some of my old classmates. The best part of it all was that all three of my best friends from way back when came back into town for the reunion! My mother-in-law came and watched my kids so my husband and I could spend several hours with everyone. We went to the reunion and then out for dinner. It was wonderful!
I’m going into the coming week excited for my conference, happy with my work, and somewhat rested. It looks to be a good week!
