I somehow found your blog when searching for snowflakes in art. Your post of snowflake auction of2007 came up. I began reading all of your other posts and was so hoping you still blog today. I was happy to see that your are still blogging. I have always loved children's literature, so this blog made my heart go pitter patter. I have three school aged sons and love buying them new books. What a gold mine I found here. I will be following for sure. Suddenly my grammer and spelling are making me feel insecure. So happy to find you.

Thanks, CareyAnn! It's always great to hear about parents who love buying their children books.

Amy, I need to spend more time working on my poetry than on blogging!
