That Book For Feets

IMG_7490Quite some time ago I promised to share the rest of the book that we'd made for our daughter. And then I got stuck on trying to convert the bizarrely formatted PDFs that I'd scanned them with, and distracted by making a skirt and trying to catch up sleep. Etc. But here at last is the whole book, beginning to end. And she loves it! Phew.

Cover I wanted to free myself from my ambitious, perfectionist streak, so I got ALL the materials off the shelf and had a jolly good play! I really enjoyed myself. Less satisfied with my characters,which I think Liam has done beautifully. Perhaps next time, we'll combine in a different way and I'll do the background and Liam can do all the characters ... Intro Gran Gramps Terry and Jen Kath and Tarik Joey All together Me2
NB: This last page has a mirror. For a long time Feets would push past all the toher pages just to get to the mirror and admire herself. Don't know where she gets her vanity from!

A Few Little Doodles

Thanks Mum Since the days for using brain power seem to be few and far between at the moment, I've taken to doodling with the lovely set of felt pens Grandad gave me for my birthday. These a few of the greetings cards that have emerged. Hello Monkey Green
