Congrats Debbie Ohi!

Yesterday the MIGs and I got an exciting email from Debbie Ridpath Ohi (fellow critique partner in crime). She's over at the SCBWI LA conference (yeah, I'm sooooo jealous!) and sending us the latest gossip via her iPad.

But the big news is she won one of the two Runner Up / Honor Award winners for the SCBWI's Illustrator Showcase!!! And get this, she also won the Mentorship Award Program. To win two awards is rare she's been told.

Read more about it here.

I'm so proud of you Debbie! You totally deserve this!

That's so exciting!! And I'm jealous of everyone who went to SCBWI...even though I don't write childrens/YA/MG/yada yada. What a great experience it would be!

Hope all's well with you. Happy weekend!

I was there and got to see her stand up and wave! I had no idea she was connected to you! Double Yay!!!!

Her work is fabulous. Very well deserved!

P.S. I took Critter to LA. He was very well recieved. I had to keep him out of trouble. Not an easy task. :0)
