Whoa, fun weekend. The OVFF concom did an amazing job! Lots of great concerts and other programming, and the con suite was well-stocked and well-organized. A detailed con report coming soon. I've updated the OVFF website with Pegasus and songwriting contest results, as well as categories for next year.

I listened to my Puzzlebox CD last night and *loved* it. And I was blown away by how professional the cover looked. Beckett (the artist who did the cover) also designed the inside to have photos of everyone who participated on the album, including Urban Tapestry (*blush). I was also super-surprised to see the Fimo cat I made for Paul last year on the back of the CD...:D :D :D.

Thanks so much to Kaarel and Katy for sending mail to my new Inkspot address! Both send cool postcards...Kaarel's was a Rocky & Bullwinkle postcard, and Katy sent a happy face postcard whose picture changes when you tilt the card.

Sorry for the brief blather, but I'm still a bit zoned from the con (plus suffering massive post-con blues). Jeff, Doug, and Scott M. put together all our new office furniture over the weekend while I was gone, and I'm excited about seeing it tonight!!!
