I’m back from Ohio and my dad’s 91st Birthday celebration. I had a great time and I was given more embarrassing pictures from my childhood!
And now it’s back to work.
Unique LA looms on my horizon and I’m designing the booth and new projects and had planned to share those with you but something dropped in my mailbox yesterday that cannot be ignored.
OK, some backstory.
True confession: when I was about 8 I discovered and went crazy for Star Trek (original recipe). I watched it every day after school, built models, and had detailed plans for my future in space.
But tragedy struck when the local TV station decided to switch to showing it late at night, way past my bedtime, once a week on a school night.
I was outraged! I wrote a protest letter (probably in crayon) but my pleas fell on deaf ears.
I was doomed, DOOMED! to never see Star Trek again.
This is how cool my mom was/is.
She would send me to bed at my regular time and then come up and get me and we’d go back downstairs and sit in the dark, on the sofa and watch Star Trek together.
It is one of my favorite childhood memories.
So, given this history you can imagine that when I was contacted a while ago to provide a Star Trek Themed project for an upcoming book I didn’t think twice and boldly went for it!
I made my little project (a Star Trek Party Table Centerpiece) –sent off the materials and text and, well, kinda forgot about it.
But yesterday the book arrived in my mailbox and I discovered that I have been published!!!!
It’s a really cool book – full of fun, clever projects and beautifully laid out.
(Yes, those are Star Trek jeans with little Enterprises all over them. Yes that’s a Star Trek shirt. Yes, I am holding a sparkler. Yes, I was very popular in school – why would you ask?)
OH! and don’t forget today is the last day to win the Ipad mini via Amy at Mod Podge Rocks! I want one of you to win it so that I have bragging rights over my fellow contributors (like the guy who owns the 7-11 where the winning lottery ticket was purchased).
OK, gotta get to work. Lots to do and lots to share in the next week or so.
