Hey, great to see you!

This was my little corner of the world last night, at Edmonds Bookshop, where I was selling my signed copies of Mixed-Media Dollhouses. And guess who came to see me? My friends Tonnie Wolfe, her daughter and brand-new granddaughter!
I know Tonnie from church, but I hadn't realized she's also a mixed-media artist. She's also going to hook me up with a local group of artists who organize a four-day art show every year.
It seems my most interested audience is women who think their arty granddaughters and nieces would love the book and my art...
... arty girls... the occasional arty boy or guy. I was too busy talking to the kids to take pictures of them, but a teacher brought her kids in to talk to me, and my last customer was a ten-year-old who convinced her mom she needed the book.

And guess who else stopped by?
Nancy Leson, food writer for the Seattle Times -- I know her a little because she and The Husband read their food writing at an event a few years ago. (He's really good. See?)

And I'd highly recommend Supporting Your Local Bookshop -- and by that I mean Edmonds Bookshop. If it weren't for the fact that I was boosting my own book, I'd've been burrowing through the fabulous selections. Thanks, Mary Kay!
