What a great day! Authors, books and crafting all in the same day. It can't get much better than that. Oh, I did have some great food too :)
This morning a co-worker and I went to the annual Pfeiffer Univ. Friends of the Library author luncheon. The author was Beth Webb Hart who has written two books - Grace at Low Tide and Adelaide Piper. Beth gave a great presentation about writing and getting published. She said she wants to write a literary coming of age southern novel that is faith based. I got autographed copies of both of her books, and I'm really looking forward to reading them. Beth is from the SC Low Country, so we had a delicious Low Country lunch - She Crab soup, butter beans, collard greens, hoppin' john and pecan crusted chicken with some bread pudding for desert.
This evening I came home and finished up a fun little craft project. One of my SCS online friends had an online craft class last night to make a great artists canvas clock. I painted my artists canvas with some Sahara Sand colored acyclic paint. Then used some pretty Spring Showers paper from SU. I added a very nice black and white photo of my parents from our trip to Bodie Island Lighthouse in February. A few shells for embellishment and a clock - and viola - a great birthday present for my dad. Happy Birthday Dad :)
