Let's peel back these layers!

juliannlaw Here is a closeup of the endpapers in my debut picture book, THE WORKD’S LONGEST SOCK. I work digitally in Adobe Photoshop but the program doesn’t do it all for me! I knit all the pixels by hand! Haha! I do have things I do to help me work quickly and efficiently, though, like using layers. Here you get to see me take off those layers one by one till we are back at nothing but a background. The World's Longest Sock is now available on  Amazon ,  Barnes and Noble ,  Target , or wherever you  buy books !

oh my stars!

Summer is full of family get-togethers and family reunions. At each one, Lucy gets excited about playing with cousins. And after each one, we spend a lot of time explaining how those cousins are related to us. I thought it would be fun to put it all together in a visual way, something to point at as we explain and talk about families.

It turned into this wonky, wacky family tree with hubby and I at the center and branching out from there. Then it turned into a solar system, it just happened. And THEN it turned into something that would look great hanging on a wall.

Shameless etsy plug, I've now made it available in my etsy shop! I will make a custom chart just for you and your fam. Check it out here.

Yes please!! What a fun family Christmas present... to us. And maybe if I'm nice, to others as well!

You're just amazing!

Jul--this is amazing! I love how your ideas grow into something totally their own. My sister-in-law is expecting a baby girl in November (finally a girl!!), and this would be such a fun way to welcome her to our world of boys.
