make.......

Today's prompt from Kim Klassens 'Be Still 52' workshop is 'Make'

I've been making for a few weeks now......

I have a commission to illustrate a children's book about domestic violence called

'Little Mouse Finds A Safe Place'.

So here are the tools of my trade and........ Little Mouse!

  4. Thank you Beverly. The book is about Little Mouse and his Mama, who find them selves living with.......A Rat! It's a story for children who have been caught up in domestic violence, used in schools, therapy etc. I have tried to make the illustrations attractive to little eyes. Thank you for calling by :-). When the book is published I'll put more illustations and how to get hold of the book on the blog......

  8. Hi Kelly, thank you so much for calling by :-). I take my grand daughter Who is two, to the library & am inspired by the illustrators! She isn't that interested in stories yet.......shes usually a quiet little thing, but as soon as we hit the library, she likes to shout and jump on the library setees........I get dark looks! Bad Granny!
