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 !

halloween pics

Lucy took this pic of me. . . I kind of like that it's fuzzy and out of focus. It adds to my witchiness.

This is Lucy's Halloween Costume #1, a Halloween Clown. . . worn to a church party where masks are not allowed.This is Halloween Costume #2, Violet from the Incredibles, complete with action pose. She wore this one to preschool wear she couldn't wear a mask either.

Can you spot Lucy in Halloween Costume #3? Yup, the ghost. This is all she really wanted to be but we had too many parties where she couldn't wear her costume! There was no talking her into any sort of a ghost costume that didn't go over her head and have eyes cut out so she could see. When people asked what she was going to be, she'd say, "A floating ghost!"
Her buddies are Josh and Jack and she is so glad they moved back from Wisconsin just in time to go Trick-or-Treating together. This is their third year in a row! A fun tradition we hope to keep. Emmie and Layla were just as excited, but there was no way we could get them all in line for a picture. . . this is the best I could get.Emmie was a darling little Bee. Does the costume look familiar? It's one I made several years ago when Lucy was this age. I love seeing them both in it -- same age, same gym floor, two very different little girls.
