Penny, Penny, Easter Bunny

One week to go until I leave for Salem (with Julia Rachel Barrett) for the 2012 NECRWA Spring Conference! Yippee!

In the meantime, I need to prepare my talk, aptly titled Penelope Channels Miss Manners: How To Promote Yourself Without Peeving Everyone Off. Unfortunately, my talk takes place during the cocktail hour, which means I'll be sipping my martini during the workshop. (I'm super good at multi-tasking). I am also busy polishing my tiara and putting together these table centerpieces for Friday night's dinner.

I'm like the freakin' Easter bunny assembling my goody baskets!

Here's a quick preview of some of the fun stuff I got at Etsy...

* Hand-wrapped pencils made with Japanese paper

* Tons of books, bookmarks and other promo items from fabulous romance writers

* Candy (if I can keep my daughter from eating it)

Yes, perhaps I went a bit overboard. And yes, perhaps this wasn't the best task to assign a person with an Etsy shopping problem (thanks a lot, Conference Committee!). But hell if I didn't enjoy being the Easter bunny this year. ;^)

Can't wait until next week.

Hop, hop, hoppity hop hop,
