The finished basket. Isn't it gorgeous? 

On Wednesday, Kim Law visited the Veranda and shared her amazing journey to publication. You can read about how she really feels about rejections here. One lucky commentator won an ARC of Kim's newest novel. I put all the names on pieces of paper and made tiny toys for Tonks. I chose the paper she pounced on first.

And the lucky winner is..... TAMMY BAUMAN!

Congratulations Tammy. I'll contact you to get your information and forward it to Kim Law.

Sorry you can't make it to the luncheon, Crystal. We'll miss you!! I hope you can come to the next one :-)

And thanks for the compliment. I had a lot of fun making the basket.

Thanks for popping in and saying hi!
