If you are a lover of "all things children's books", then you probably know about this blog (and if you don't know you should so run right over and check it out). I am honored and delighted to be featured on it today.
I had a crazy day yesterday full of surprises! I went to my PO Box which is in a Hallmark gift shop and saw these adorable fabric animal purses and then noticed this horse was made out of On A Whim 2 flowers and stripes.
Then when I got home I found a surprise package from Highlights with this inside -
A platinum plate award for best illustration for a mini-book in 2010. Yay! I love surprises.
Designed and sewn by the very lovely and talented Mary Abreu, the author of this book and hopefully the author of more great books to follow. I am so glad she lives in the ATL and I hope we get to collaborate on some more projects! I just love how she used the fabrics from Animal Party Too (about to ship out any day). Click on photos to zoom in.
I just received a package with a couple of copies of "Splish Splash", my new board book with Little Simon.
This is the illustration I did for the back cover of the book. If you get the book and like it - please, please review the book here. I am waiting for my other copies so I can host a give away, so stay posted. If you do order the book I hope you enjoy it!!
