I almost forgot about this post, you guys, since these holiday days are running together. But here I am. Notice the number up above. ONE HUNDRED AND NINETY-NINE. I am not even making that up. Next week, the first Sunday of 2011, we’ll all be kickin’ it 200-style. Two hundred weeks of taking some time here at 7-Imp to reflect on Seven(ish) Exceptionally Fabulous, Beautiful, Interesting, Hilarious, or Otherwise Positive Noteworthy Things, whether book-related or not, that happened to you. Whew. Pretty neat timing, huh?
I’m going to forego seven separate kicks this week (by all means, leave your seven kicks, though) and simply say hi and, once again, happy holidays. I’ve been short-and-sweet posting some holiday illustrations this week, one for each day, thanks to some nice illustrators, so if you missed ’em, go have a look. Today’s illustrations are from the one and only Julie Paschkis, who has graced this blog many a’times, seeing as how I’m a huge fan.
My one big kick right now is that I get to see some dear long-distance friends this week, and that includes Eisha, who’s in town. Yes, seven woots for a girls’ night out, as we plan to hit the town one night this week, have a generous amount of wine (that’s my intention anyway), and catch up.
How about you? Did you kickers have a wonderful holiday? I hope so. Here’s one more image from Julie, and I thank her for sharing her art this morning.
