Photo shoot for SLJ

Naturally, I was ecstatic when School Library Journal contacted me about being interviewed for their Under Cover column.

They wanted to do a photo shoot and, thankfully, due to my heavy school visit schedule, the photographer agreed to come to my house.

She suggested that perhaps my garage would be the best place to set up.

Here is the garage in my fantasy world:

This is the garage in my real world:

Luckily, because I am a princess and cannot go out into rain or snow to get into my car, I insist that I have half of the garage for MY car. (Can you see the steer skull on the wall by the door? Notice it is not hanging over my living room mantel. It is hanging in the garage. Good thing women are in control of the world.)

So I backed my car out and the fabulous photographer, Jodi Hilton, went to work setting up. What a good sport she was!

By the way, the photo shoot is what the 70 Yoohoo boats were for.

And here's the photo with the boats!

Now I can love you again. That garage makes me realize even you have limits to your inner Martha Stewartness.
