Something a little different this time around — a peek at a Mother-Daughter Book Club themed birthday party! Ingredients include:
1. Friends (of course)
2. Fun table decorations (I love this idea!)
4. A fun party game (MDBC trivia — I want to play!)
And finally, a gorgeous thank you card for the author, who provided a brief video greeting and autographed bookmarks for the guests…
(The photo did double duty on the party invitations, too — cute, right?)
Thank you, Katie, for sharing this with us all! And once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
This always makes me sad, because I know you’re eagerly awaiting a response, and there’s no way I can send you one.
So, if you see your name here on this list, please leave a comment and I’ll get in touch with you for your correct address, OK?

Whew! Long list this time. Moral of the story: check and double-check that you’ve included a return address on your snail mail, and that the email addresses you provide when you contact me are 100% accurate!
Over the past few days, Portland was finally treated to a blast of the winter that everyone else has been having. My husband and I have been snowed in here at home, which is so unusual for this part of Oregon, and SO FUN! Especially with the Olympics to watch on TV, and lots of hot chocolate to keep us warm.
Thanks to the weather, I decided that today is the perfect time to reveal the cover for the second book I have coming out later this year. (Click here to read about the other one.) Are you ready?
It’s so beautiful I want to cry! Bagram Ibatoulline is an amazing artist, an INCREDIBLE artist, and Simon & Schuster has given me an enormous gift by choosing him as the illustrator for this picture book.
Wait until you see his artwork–the pages look like they’re lit from within. I truly can’t wait until this one hits the shelves next fall!
