Winning! A break

Nope. That's not a fun title for a Perfect Picture Book Friday post.

I'm going to be realistic and call "Break!" right now. You know that's like calling "Shotgun!" or "Last piece." Well, maybe not. See, I'm not making sense. "Break!"

I'm in the middle of final projects — two complete websites — at this very minute. When I was testing a link, I realized I hadn't posted my Perfect Picture Book Friday. 

Instead, I'll just share this:


Yep. I'm a winner!

I wrote 97 picture book ideas in November. This badge is a great prize, plus all those ideas.

Once my projects are complete, I will write my 12x draft, write a little holiday contest story, and write my goals for 2013. If all goes well with my final projects, I'll have a real website and can mark that off my list. Of course, I'll enjoy Christmas (we visit Santa on Saturday), family, and holiday treats.

Have a wonderful December and holiday season!

  5. Congratulations! I was a winner, too. I've been busy posting about a Christmas PB each day this month until Dec. 24th. It's been fun and really getting me in the mood for Christmas. If anyone wants, come over to my blog and take a look.

  6. 97 wow! That's fantastic! And I can't wait to see your new website. That's something I ought to think about or at least buying my domain name. Where did you buy yours if you don't mind me asking?

    1. Catherine, I bought my names through GoDaddy, because it was easy. I found a good article comparing all the companies recently. When I find it, I'll send you a link.

    1. I'm still needing the force as I type this note — my break in between problem solving.

  9. Smart to take a break! How do you create a real website?? I want to revamp mine, but I'm technologically challenged. So, I just play with changing theme appearances. Am afraid I'll loose everything. You're brave.
