My Highlights still hasn't arrived, but a sweet neighbor dropped her copy off last night. My girls jumped around screaming and squealing, begging me to let them take it to camp. I can't even imagine what they'll do when I finally have a book published.

Highlights is such a wonderful magazine, I'm thrilled to be a small part of it. I actually hadn't considered writing crafts or code puzzles before I went to Chautauqua last summer. After meeting several Highlights editors, I couldn't wait to send some submissions. I don't know how the Highlights Foundation found such a fabulous faculty. Chautauqua was full of the most down to earth, generous, and talented people--and I feel so lucky that I was able to spend a week with them.

I'm thrilled for my friends who are experiencing that magical week now, and can't wait to hear all about it. And I'm missing Chautauqua and all the wonderful friends I made there. It was one of the most inspirational experiences I have ever had--if you ever get a chance to attend, go for it!
