Happy Runaways

"Well," said Frances, "things are not very good 
around here anymore. 
No clothes to wear. No raisins for the oatmeal. 
I think maybe I'll run away."
"Finish your breakfast," said Mother. "It is almost time for the school bus."
"What time will dinner be tonight?" said Frances.
"Half past six," said Mother.
"Then I will have plenty of time to run away after dinner," said Frances
and she kissed her mother good-bye and went to school.

Sugar Snack's already getting the hang of Frances' warbles.


Off to the SCBWI WWA conference! 
Coming? I can't wait to meet you!
Staying?  I will load up on writing tips and bring them back for you. 

And guess who gets to smuggle along...

hello Faith, I think I spent a bit more time with your little bundle of joy than I did you, but I'm so happy to have met you ever so briefly : ) let's stay in touch!

Blog friends, you are lovely. I've returned with much matter to process and share.
To my newfound designer, writer and artist friends, what a pleasure to meet you!

OK Faithy, these are officially cute. I like the little blues traveler. Just needs some shades. But then no twinkle. Also love the littlest member of the Bolshoi.
