Better Late Than Never- Thank You!

A few weeks ago I received an email from a real estate manager from Las Vegas looking for me. Someone sent her a package intended for me from Highlights Magazine and she wanted to know my address so she could forward it my way. It turned out that this package was sent to me in 2008 and being in the military we were reassigned and I never received it.

I'm not sure what the backstory is. I'm guessing the new renters held on to it and never returned it to the post office for it to be forwarded on to me and when they left the new renters found it? Maybe?
Regardless, I am amazed and grateful to be receiving the "Visual Puzzle of the Year" for 2008.
Thank You, 3 years later, Highlights! I'm so honored.

Here is the illustration and a link to my blog post back then regarding the process of this challenging project.

Roz, Congratulations!!

What a crazy story! I'm sure the folks at Highlights got a big kick out of the story too! What a bummer you waited three years to get the pckage and the honor, but hey, you are so right-- better late than never!!
