Christmas Continues into the New Year

New Character for Christmas 2015 book 
Christmas continues for me, as I finish up the illustrations for a Christmas 2015 book I wrote called, A Homemade Together Christmas, which will be published by Albert Whitman & Co in the Fall of 2015.  It looks like it will be Christmas all year for me as I jump into a new Christmas book which I just sold for Christmas 2016. This one is a novelty Christmas book with flaps and pop-ups. Fun and challenging, and I love a challenge. (It's too soon to post the publisher and title on that one.)

The New Year will also bring the release of my new book,  JANINE. (March 1, 2015). My Spring is lined up with lots of school visits, presentations, book signings, travel and a Publishing Launch party. I'll be posting all of the details soon. In the meantime, I wish you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. 
Publishing March 1!!!

Greetings, earthling! Can't stay long, done gotta git, Paw ...yet, if I'm a sower, we plant the Seed; if I'm an artist, we write the Word:

I actually saw Seventh-Heaven when we died: you couldn't GET any moe curly, extravagantly-surplus-lush Upstairs when my beautifull, brilliant, bombastic, bawlsy girly passed-away at 17 (God calls U.S. home regardless).

"Those who are wise will shine as brightly as the expanse of the Heavens, and those who have instructed many in uprightousness, as bright as stars for all eternity"
-Daniel 12:3

Here's what the prolific, exquisite GODy sed: 'the more you shall honor Me, the more I shall bless you'
-the Infant Jesus of Prague.

Go git'm, girl. You're incredible.
See you Upstairs...
