  1. I loved illustrating your poem for Ladybug. It was so whimsical and fun!
    Best of luck in your writing ventures.

  2. Michele,

    Thanks for your words and for stopping by. You did a great job on the illustrations! I'd love to work with you again. Wouldn't it be great to talk about the poetry beforehand too? I imagine it could help the process. Just a thought.

  3. Congratulations on the poem. Carrus publications are a great credit to have on your writing resume.

  4. Shannon,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm impressed with your publishing credentials.

    I've tried to get published in Highlights, but it's been hard. I've even entered their fiction contest every year since 2005.
