3 Facts About Writing Picture Books

Years ago, before I wrote my first picture book, I thought that picture books were really easy to write.  I figured, well, they are short and how hard can it be to write a short book?

How wrong I was.

Throughout college, I kept a secret. There was something that I liked to do to relieve stress, but only when my roommate wasn't around. (I didn't want her judging me.) But I often found myself around exams week taking a break from my studies and taking a few minutes out of my day to color.…

Color Me Anything I Want!!!

Ever wish you could change the color of your eyes to really make your peepers pop?? Oh wait…you can. Color contact lenses. Argh. No matter who the manufacturer is, the hues are still super-fake looking, even after so many years. Staring deep into someone’s really oddly opaque blue eyes is a slight bit disturbing. So I’ve heard. Or when they float around on your brown irises because let’s face it, it’s not a one size fits all product, and you look like an alien with one half-green eye and one…

Learn How to Keep Your Toddler’s Artwork off of the Walls and Furniture

A few weeks ago, my husband asked me if I needed anything from the store.  I asked him if he would pick up my youngest son a coloring book because he kept grabbing my pen from me when I wasn’t watching and kept telling me that he wanted to draw.  I took the pen away from him and he was devastated, even though…

Till Death Do Us Barf

Misadventures in Motherhood:  Till Death Do Us Barf

Weddings are wonderful, festive, life-changing, and occasionally disastrous events. I suppose Forrest Gump's famous line could apply to them, in that you never know what you're gonna get.

Creating New Colors - Pantone

 

Though I love color (and color on top of color), I had never given much thought to how colors are created. I guess it’s something that I always took for granted… That colors just… were.

Yellow makes me feel like a banana . . .

Does yellow make you feel like a banana? Is red just like lava? And does purple make you feel like an onion? If so, then you, too, will succeed as an Art Mom in my child's classroom.

Being an Art Mom is simple: You prepare a little program that teaches the kids about artists or color or a style of art, and then develop a little project to go with it. It's a lot of fun - second graders are a very appreciative audience.

I decided to talk about color and moods - you know, how does…

A task for the kid-less weekend…



Yep. What do I do when the girls are at their grandparents and my wonderful spouse is at work?Organize our book shelf by color! Yes, I’m weird. (And just in case you think I’m nuts too, I also took walks and had lots of time to write.)
