Bridget Zinn's Silent Auction was Friday 5/29
It was a great night. Bridget looked beautiful standing here with Jone.
And I finally got a chance to sit down and chat with Suzanne Young, who I met at a conference a year ago but have never been lucky enough to spend any time with. She's a bubbly bundle of energy and she ran around selling raffle tickets for the cause.
I also got a chance to sit between the two wonderful writers who both go by the same name: Lisa, Schroeder and Madigan.
Plus, the great illustrater Matt Holme from Baby Mouse was there.
My husband and I were checking out the items up for bid, when I pointed out a pet message that I thought would be fun to bid on.
He said, "Are you crazy? If anyone's getting a message, it's going to be me."
So we ended up winning a Thai message for my hubby. It sounds heavenly.
I was lucky enough to win a critique from Margot Finke. There were other great prizes and other great people there. Check out the links to read more.
A special Thank-You! to Jone MacCulloch for all her hard work putting the event together and Lisa Nowak!!!
(Two of these photos were taken by Suzanne Young - I only had my cellphone with me - so I'm sure you can guess which ones those are. ;-)
