Free Loot Give-away
June is my birthday month, so I'm giving a present to you!
That's right, one lucky respondent will receive all this cool stuff: a signed copy of Photo, Snap, Shot; two I (heart) Kiki buttons, bookmarks, and a small album kit.
Just email your name and postal address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org On June 27, I'll choose one lucky winner at random. Why not tell a friend?
By the way, I'm having some GORGEOUS tee-shirts made that say, "Kiki Lowenstein Fan Club," and I'll be giving one away really soon, so I urge you to become a follower of this blog.
Which leads me to an apology. I hoped to have more posts up. Have you missed me? I've missed you. I came home from my Kiki Lowenstein World Tour totally exhausted. Then I couldn't get my photos to upload. I kept trying and trying, before finally breaking down and begging my husband for help. He spent two nights working to get my computer to recognize the software to upload photos. Finally, he called his computer guru and took in my hard-drive.
Believe me, I HATE having my hard-drive out of my sight. Makes me physically ill. I mean, I have books, articles, beginnings of books, unpublished books, contracts...need I go on? You're getting the picture.
Turns out I wore out the USB port. Yep. Now we're accustomed to me wearing the letters off of keyboards, but this was a new low or high for me. So now we're back in business.

And here are some of the guest blog posts I did recently.
Are They Nuts? At the Femmes Fatales Blog, I discuss scrapbookers who got in trouble with the law.
Scrapping Her Way to a New Career At my good friend Emilie Richards' blog, we chatted about who gave me the idea to write about a scrapbooker. Hint: Her initials are E.R.
Why Every Protagonist Needs a Sidekick is the title of the post I wrote for The LadyKillers Blog.
At the Cozy Chicks Blog, I shared a photo of the chaos in my office after a scrapbooking project, plus some thoughts about the nature of creativity.
I wrote about my creative toolbox, the tools I use all the time as an author, for my friend Sheila Glazov's blog.
You can see photos of me and my dogs at Meanderings and Muses.
Okay, that should hold you for a while!
