Room to grow.

Thanks for all your comments on the up and coming book! It really is odd to be working on a project that I can't really talk about for a while....the process of creating a children's book is so collaborative and involves so many layers of production. It's a truly amazing industry! So as hard as I am working now, it won't even hit the stores for a year and a half. And I've actually been working on this for a year! I have a whole new level of appreciation when I browse the children's book section at the bookstore. Honestly....these people dedicate whole chunks of life to those pages! It's wonderful and amazing.

Really, though. Thanks for all your kinds words and support. It means so much to me. I'll share more as soon as I can!

In the mean time though, isn't this room darling? Amy sent it to me after she framed the SUMMER TEA PARTY print in her daughter's room. She is an amazing quilter too, and sells her quilting kits on ETSY. I have one of her quilt kits sitting in a bag. I bought it for Ella when I was pregnant (you know how you get so excited about projects when you are nesting and pregnant, and then you're too tired and fat to do them? And then when you have the baby you are too exhausted and deleriously sleep deprived to do them? Ya. That was me. Ella is 11 months, and her baby quilt is sitting in a bag.) Anyways....if you are unlike me, and actually finish the projects you intend to do, you'll be so happy with her kits. And if you are like me, and don't finish, thankfully she sells her quilts too. Don't you love her colors?

Hope your all having a great week! The snow here thankfully subsided and there might be hope of sunny weather soon. Might being the key word.
