Emily made this topper on a commission. It's not fondant but polymer clay. Yes, she's moved to a new medium. Anyone who's read the books should instantly recognize the characters.
We had the third and final session of our Art of Poetry meetup. We were on Google Hangout with other groups who also did the MOOC and with the man himself, Dr. Robert Pinsky. Over at the US Embassy, F. Sionil Jose was also on hand to take in some questions.
There were technical difficulties in getting the Hangouts to work, especially on Dr. Pinsky's side. Ultimately we had to drop the Hangout with him and switched to Skype. The session also lasted longer than I thought it would -- three whole hours -- I think it could have been managed better. Still, it was great to be able to interact with Dr. Pinsky live.
