Kind of a big deal

I'm not usually one to toot my own horn, but after my unfair rejection earlier this week, I figured why not? See I got this award from the North Carolina Press Association for an article I wrote. I finally got my hands on the article--I didn't have a copy and I wrote it before the newspaper had a website, which is really quite sad, but that's a whole other story. So if you'd like to read it, you can do so here. It's a nice story about Bookin' It Mobile Bookstore. If you're in the Charlotte area, I highly recommend checking them out.

The recognition doesn't stop there though. Another member of the Light family is blowing up right now too. I'd like to direct your attention to Light Whimsy,where you'll find the talented Penny Light (aka Mom) throwing down on some awesome card creations. First she won a contest and will be published in Circuit Chirp for this beautiful creation. Then she was contacted by a design team to design custom cards for all kinds of cool things. I'm not really hip to the whole card creation scene, but I do know my mom is pretty awesome at it.

I'm not sure how to say it, but, she's kind of a big deal.
