She was invited to attend the CWA event both for the award ceremony and for three days' worth of conference sessions on writing, photography tips and such.
Her roomie at the event was none other than Glogirly, the designer of the Association's new logo (cool, huh?).
She had a ton of fun hanging out with other celebs such as the author of the very entertaining Whiskerslist: The Kitty Classifieds and Sparkle's very talented human, who also is an author and publisher.

Glogirly presented a very informative session packed with practical photography tips for the newbie and the seasoned shutterbug. And Sparkle's human gave a great talk about how to monetize your blog. A fun time was had by all, except for us poor deprived latchkey kitties back home. But we digress.
Our mom did eventually remember she had three feline dependents, ended her wild gallavanting, and returned home. With swag in tow. Lots of swag.
So much swag, we all decided we needed to share the largesse. So without further ado, we present to you our
