I have this friend. She is my friend from forever, pretty much. We grew up a few blocks apart, went to the same elementary school and junior high, became friends with each other's friends in high school and college, and were roommates for a year after graduation. That kind of friend.
I've already blogged about my eraser-stamp bookplates -- I'm not tremendously artistic, so I get pretty excited when I'm able to make something I actually like. So after I made the bookplates for WHEN YOU REACH ME, my friend said she thought I should make some eraser stamps for FIRST LIGHT. "Yeah," I said, "I should." But I never did.
People, she made some for me (with help from her wonderful and talented daughter, S.)!
And they are so, so beautiful!!
