Pyramid Power!

I finished the April story today. It only took me six months to make this one work. SIX months!

I'm attributing my accomplishment to the power of the pyramids. Last night a friend who'd just returned from a trip to Egypt, brought us these cute little carvings and a little packet of sand from around the pyramids at Giza. [He didn't take the sand himself. Someone collected it for him.]

Today I bought the bottle and the placard charm at JoAnne's. I printed the little sign on my computer and made a little Egyptian display on my curio shelf. Maybe the power of the pyramids boosted my creativity so I could finally finished my draft! [And yes, that's one of my temari in the background.]

I have my new blog header and my new avatar! [I do miss the mushroom - because the mushroom is so me,] but I love my new blog header and my awesome cover artist, Niina Cord, who's responsible for ALL of the cover art for my series.
