The Cat Is Out Of The Bag!

First of all, Christina Rodriguez is way too wonderful for words! I just read her blog and all the nice things she said....wow! It took me a while to clear off my desk, but I have officially begun working on my very first picture book! I can honestly say that I am winging it, but feel very lucky to have Christina and the rest of the Art Ninjas to lean on, along with all the super nice people at Alma Little (who have been supremely supportive and helpful already). And of course, my family and friends (am I having my Sally Field moment or what!?!). Stay tuned for more exciting updates from Nina's desk....
p.s. Alma Little is an imprint of Elva Resa Publishing, based in St. Paul, Minnesota!

CONGRATS CONGRATS CONGRATS! If I haven't mentioned it already congrats Nina. You really deserve this and am super excited to hear more about the project. You will do great and this is a great notion of the dedication you have had the last year. Way to go and will hopefully see you this weekend in Owatonna

Holy Cow, Shawn! That means a lot to me- thank you! See you next weekend in Owatonna (p.s. Saw your artwork for the show... Your paintings are amazing, as always!)

Congratulations Cousin! You have such a great talent...it was only a matter of time before it all fell into place for you in the art world.

Yea, Nina! Congratulations! I'm so glad all your hard work has paid off. Can't wait to see the final product.

Nina said...

Thanks, Cousin! I love you so much and your support means the world to me!

Many, many thanks, Christy! I will never forget how sweet you were when I was just starting out, and am so glad that we've kept in touch! You are wonderful and I hope to meet you someday- until then, have fun in KS with Amanda!
