One VERY good week

Think bright pink exclamation point. 200 pt Nueva:

That is me this week. I am an exclamation mark because 3 great things occurred in my life this week:

1. I toured and have a studio space on reserve for me at Western Avenue Studios in Lowell, Massachusetts. This not only puts a rocket launcher into my part time freelance illustration career, but it's getting me out of the house so that I can interact with an inspiring community. I sign my lease later this week and there will most likely be many studio set-up photos to follow over the next month.

2. Did you know I wrote a macrame book? Did write/illustrate... now sifting through the draft. I got to see my Book Baby for the first time Tuesday. I'm pretty sure followers on Twitter could hear my scream from delight. Here is the official book announcement sent by Fox Chapel Publishing:

Hello! Macramé should be landing in crafty stores April/May.

3. Though we were threatened with a foot of snow this Wednesday, clearing my car required only a couple swipes from the wiper blades to clear. Whew!

Fixed with a giant smile, yours
