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 !


Sometimes when the sun is bright and the kids are on the move, I like to put my camera on the action or sports setting and just click away. I never know what I'm going to get till I review them later. . .

P.S. Anyone know how to get rid of a binkie? It's time.

Someone I know said they just "hid it" and told the kid they could have it when they found it but eventually they just gave up.

Tie it to a helium ballon and send it away to the faries.
Swap it at Christmas with a present from Santa - this works for birthdays too!
A friend of mine slowly started cutting away at the sucky bit until there was nothing left to suck on and her son would just laugh when it fell out of his mouth.
Hope these help!

With E and T we traded it for a red trike and princess scooter. Worked pretty well, although T sometimes said she wanted to trade the scooter back; shocking since she was quite in love with it. :)

I snipped off the top of Hazel's binky and told her it was broken. I cried (and cried and cried and sobbed) and my tears far outlasted hers... something about babies growing up just gets me! :)
I kid you not, but each time it was "time," whichever kid's it was had misplaced it. This made it easy to say "it's lost" because it was the truth. Of course I'd find it in a day or 2, but then I'd throw it out. When asked about it all I'd say was "remember that it got lost?" It only took 3-5 days for them to adjust to the new normal without it. GOOD LUCK!
