Today’s Big Surprise – Love My Shoes & Logo Winners

A few days ago Eileen sent me one of her new books, LOVE MY SHOES.  This is not unusal, because as most of you know I do Eileen and Jerry Spinelli’s Websites.  I’ve been so busy with the conference that I hadn’t had a minute to open it up.  Well, I opened it up tonight and Eileen dedicated the book to me.  I am so honored that I had to share the news with all of you.  It is a really cute board book – perfect for the little girl in your life.  It even has laces running down the spine of the book.

For those of you who don’t know Eileen Spinelli, she is one of the sweetest people you would ever want to meet.  I strive to me like Eileen.

This year we have three winners of the New Jersey SCBWI Logo Contest.  Karen Romango came in first palce and in second place, Olga Levitskiy, and Beth Bogart came in Third.  As winners they get an invitation to the Saturday night Faculty Dinner at the conference.  Again lots of good artwork, but I don’t think anyone sent in their artwork using the specs listed.  Like last year, I will share everyones submission and give you my thoughts in another blog. 

Congratulations! Karen, Olga and Beth!
