Back from my trip but am still catching up...

Painting Session at David Diaz's During Lost Weekend

Just got back from a 10 day trip to California and Texas. In California, I attended Lost Weekend: an amazing creative weekend hosted by Caldecott-winning illustrator David Diaz (see above photo). After that, I attended BoardGameGeek with my husband: a five day (yes, I said FIVE DAYS) board gaming convention.

I'll be posting more about Lost Weekend here in Inkygirl, and am posting about BGG in my board gaming blog.

Right now, however, I need to unpack and then catch up with some e-mail...
