Fall Vignette

I like to mix up seasonal art & inspiration on my walls.
This is a medley of painted florals & some embroidery work from my friend Gina.

Headed to the orchard?

If you're headed to the orchard soon check out How Do Apples Grow?
This board book part of my Hello, World! series covers the growth cycle of apples.
From seed, sapling, bloom, to fruit!
It's a fascinating process that is explained in a simple, concise way.
I know it made me look at the apple laden trees differently during my last
trip to the orchard.

Hello, World! mini books

Here's some exciting news.  The licensing director at Random House Children's Books set up a deal with Chick-fil-A to have some of my books offered with their kids meals starting August 1st.
It went so well that they'll be doing it again next August!  I've heard from friends & family that they're already gone in lots of locations.  I'm grateful for the response & hope that if you didn't get one this round you'll check back next August through late September when there will be more.

I love writing, illustrating, and learning with this series.
 I'm pinching myself over how many
kids will discover Hello, World! with this opportunity.

DREAM fabric collection

I'm excited to give you a peek of my latest collection with Windham Fabrics.
Met DREAM a gender neutral baby collection filled with fresh faces & lots of fun!
This is the first time I've made a baby milestone mat.  I was thrilled to have this be
part of the collection.  Seems like babies turn into toddlers before you know it.
This is a nice way to remember each precious month.
(which I know doesn't always feel so precious but, looking back just might)

Golden Light

I woke up this morning,
smiled at the rising sun.

Nothing is lost...

The secret ingredient is time.
I have always been a prepared person but, I struggle with the patience part.

The late summer sounds of a symphony of cicadas.
They're not subtle which over time has grown on me.
