     January is all about being bundled!  Hope you are staying warm. 

                       It snowed here last night.  This is a view from my studio window.

There's something uniquely special about each of us!  I think as you get older this becomes easier to discover.  When I was younger I felt a lot of shame and embarrassment around being dyslexic.  As an adult I've discovered it is part of my magic.  Yes, it takes me longer to read and the process isn't relaxing or fluid but, it is also what helps me see things differently.  My brain processes things differently and that's okay– in fact I've realized this can work in my favor.  Another benefit... I'm used to working hard, because reading a large amount of text is difficult for me– I don't expect it to be easy & have learned to dig in & do it anyhow.  This skill has served me well in other areas of my life too!

Your super power might just surprise you.

HELLO, WORLD! Garden Time


My new HELLO, WORLD! board book Garden Time is now available.  This simple story walks young readers through the step by step process of growing a garden.  Helpful labels point out special parts to keep an eye out for if you decide to try out your green thumb!  I know I have spring fever & this book would be fun to read year round.
