We are back from our whirlwind trek to northern California and we had so much fun. And we ate so much. And we slept so little. It was a perfect adventure! In the days to come (when we've recovered) we'll share some pictures and stories from the last few days. We really appreciate everyone who came out to meet us at My Daughter's Wish in Walnut Creek on Saturday. It's always an added bonus when we get to meet other bloggers like Catherine from Happy Day Art who had great stories and wisdom and who was great at convincing me that wearing jewelry I made from Precious Metal Clay was not the cause of my bad luck even though it was the common denominator when bad luck happened. And then there is Mary Mary. We finally got to meet Mary Mary who drove a very long way to meet us. We love Mary Mary. Mary Mary had a blog but now she doesn't and soon she will again. Mary Mary probably hates being called Mary Mary but we know a lot of Marys, so...yeah. Mary Mary is the baker of all things good and she has the prettiest eyes you'll ever see and the hair cut I was supposed to have but didn't get, even though I paid a pretty penny for it. But I am happy knowing and seeing that Mary Mary got hair intended for me. You'll have to take our word on those things because though there is a photo of the three of us, as usual, my seester did not tell me that my lipstick was not dark enough and that my hair was flat...that happens as often as one of our names being spelled wrong on book promotion stuff. Awe, you didn't really think we'd have a week of book signing where both our names were spelled right, did you? No, we didn't think so either. The nice folks at My Daughter's Wish made this cute little sign to announce our book signing:
This one is not even a typo, it's a totally different name. Too funny.
If you are in the Bay Area, you can purchase signed copies of Visual Chronicles at Borders (Union Square) in San Francisco and at My Daughter's Wish in Walnut Creek (or at their online shop).
We will be teaching a workshop at Art Unraveled in Phoenix on August 17th and there are only a couple spaces still available. Go here to reserve your spot. We are so excited to be part of a BIG book signing gathering at Barnes & Noble in Phoenix on August 19th at 7:00 PM. What makes it so big is that we'll be joined by Carol Wingert and Tena Sprenger of Artful Memories, Josie Cirincione of Collage Lost and Found, and by Tonia Davenport of Frame It! (and soon to be a craft show tv star). Barnes & Noble will never be the same after a night with all of our combined creative energy!
