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 !

little projects

This was an impromptu project, Lucy's idea. She wanted to make ghosts for a little Halloween project. I was just thinking of using construction paper and glue, but she definitely wanted something white to drape over something else. So we came up with these little puppets. Ghost Puppets Materials needed: Kleenex wide popsicle sticks glue stick markers For some really fun toddler and kid projects and activities, you've got to check out my friend Janelle's blog, Where are my Mary Jane's? She updates frequently and has fantastic ideas. She'll also try other people's projects and let you know the reality of how it goes with the little ones. Cute stuff.

cute, a chinchilla!

The other day we drove by a kid in the neighborhood sitting on on his porch step with a sign that said "Silly Bandz for Sale." Always suckers for an enterprising kid trying to earn a buck, we stopped to get a handful of the popular bracelets for Lucy. She and I were sorting through trying to find which ones we wanted to get, and I kept getting them wrong. The 8 year old actually laughed out loud at me. Here is what I saw: Here is what they really are: Oops.
