Fan Art Friday

January 17th, 2014

Is it Friday again already?  This past week went by in a whoosh… 

I have more great art to share with you today — this time around a lovely black-and-white line drawing by Emma.  Double-click on it for a closer look.

As always, I’m amazed and impressed!  Beautiful work, Emma!

Fan Art Friday

January 10th, 2014

It’s my favorite day of the week — the day I get to turn the spotlight on YOU!

(I’m fond of Story Starter Saturday for the same reason.)

I’m turning over a NEW LEAF for 2014, and am going to try and not only get caught up with all my mail, but stay caught up with all my mail.

We’ll see how that works out, right?

Heh.

So to those of you patiently awaiting replies to your letters and emails, hang in there a little longer. I’m diving into my pile o’ mail even as we speak…

Meanwhile, I have a treat for you.  First of all, a glorious self-portrait of Miranda and Sofia, who were 11 when they sent me these pictures LAST SUMMER, and are probably, like, 27 by now. And have grown long, gray beards waiting for me to finally, FINALLY, post their pictures!Miranda & Sofia

Could they possibly be any cuter?  I don’t think so.

Isn’t this a great picture for a cold, rainy Northwest winter day (cold and snowy where many of you are)? Such a blast of summer! I’m keeping it here on my desk to remind me that warmer days are coming…

And here’s the drawing that Sofia did for me:

Sofia's artSimply stellar, Sofia!  (stellar: of or relating to the stars; outstanding — in other words, you’re a star, Sofia!)

Thank you so much, girls — your cheerful faces, lovely letter, and delightful drawing absolutely made my day!

Stop by tomorrow as we kick of the brand-new year with a brand-new Saturday Story Starter.

 

Fan Art Friday

November 22nd, 2013

Now that I’m back in town for a while (more about my travels later), I finally have time to share with you  some of the AMAZING, INCREDIBLE fan art that has found its way to me recently!

When this particular package came in the mail a few months ago (yes, shame on me, it’s been that long since I’ve had a chance to sit down and organize my blog), I was speechless. Just. Speechless. The care and love and thought and artistry that went into making each of these lovely friendship bracelets–color coordinated to match the corresponding books–totally blew me away.

So Brianna, today’s post is ALL ABOUT YOU!  I’m sending love & hugs your way, as words are inadequate to tell you how much your beautiful gift meant to me. I’ll treasure them always, along with your letter.

These photographs don’t do Brianna’s craftsmanship justice, I’m afraid. If you click on them, though, it should enlarge them so you can see at least some of the detail.

Fan Art Friendship Bracelets

Fabulous (as Wolfgang would say), right? Here’s a closeup of the bracelets on their own:

Just had a brilliant thought:
I’m going to hang them on my Christmas tree this year!
*perfect*
