Handmade for Haiti

The books are finished and ready for print!  

I am so, so, so excited!  I'd like to give a BIG round of applause and thank you to Stephanie Victor from Abundant Ground for helping me to write the books, translate the books and make suggestions for each illustration!


Her knowledge and understanding of the Haitian culture, language and children has been invaluable throughout the course of designing these handmade books!


A group of us from church got together Thursday night and put some books together!


It is pretty easy to follow Katie's Toddler Memory Book tutorial on how to cut out the pages, put them in individual plastic covers and sew them together.


The books turned out great and I am so happy with the colors and pictures!


They are stiff, sturdy and easy to clean!


Thank you everyone who came to put them together!  I think the books turned out great!


We want to make and collect 50 books for the Croix des Bouquets orphanage in Haiti.  Please let me know if anyone out there is interested in printing and assembling a book!  They are super easy and cheap to make!  If you have already emailed me in regards to this project, I will contact you soon with the PDF of all the illustrations ;)

Thanks all!
