Hi, Carrie! When I found your story and the illustrations with fabric through Blog Frog (MckMaMa Group), I was just blown away by such an adorable creation! The story is not just fun for toddlers and preschoolers, but it is educational too. I loved the way you used fabric, colors and the computer to illustrate the book so beautifully. People, when you're done reading the book she posted on her site here, if you don't want to just pick up monkey, seagull, and the little pink whale and smooch them...you must have your maternal instincts turned off! Seriously, it's a winning combination!
Thanks for stopping by my blog!I'm going to look into that book! We could ALWAYS use new books around our house!
CK . . . . I swear you amaze me. It started with that card, LOL. How you can turn a stuffed whale and some snapshots of fabric into a book cover is beyond me (no matter how clearly you described it, graphic design is not my calling, LOL). Where is your book for sale?
Hey Ms Understood! I have not published the whale story. I made it as a gift for my son. I ordered prints of each illustration and have plans to bind them. Hopefully they will arrive in the mail this week. Depending on how well it prints I may make more copies. I'll keep you posted on how it goes.
Okay . . .how about I didn't realize I couldn't email you back and I sent you one earlier today and only just now realized that beside your name the email address was noreply, LOL. From your earlier comment, both of the previous and current header pics were from pics taken the day after our wedding. Because we had both the ceremony and reception at the same location, we didn't want to leave and come back so our photographers came back and did a day after photoshoot with just us. Oh, and I mentioned since both of us fumbled through our first dates with our husbands, fumbling must be a sign of a keeper.Lastly (gosh this is a long comment), I hope that the book turns out the way you want it too. I'll be waiting to hear.
Crap, for got one last thing. That story is such an amazing way to teach your child about family. They can identify who the different people/whales are in their family and learn about how family takes care of each other. Love it. Okay. For real, I'm gone now and I'll stop hogging all your comment space, LOL.
