Those plans involved getting out my watercolor pencils and fine-tipped sharpie pens and doing a little artwork. I spent a few hours at it this morning, and I tell you, I'd forgotten how happy I feel when the creative juices are flowing.
Today, I'm unveiling a new page for the ABC Book, which I haven't worked on in quite a LONG time (due to putting it aside for six months to write Erin's Ring; then playing nanny to my sweet little grandson, G-Man, for four months; then seeing my youngest son graduate from college and soon afterward leave the nest--excuses, I've got a million of them!).
This illustration is a belated birthday gift to my girlies, who were most definitely the inspiration for it.
The next page is going to say, "And it's for tall, tall trees, and tiny baby toes."
When I get to it, that is. Which may not be for a couple of weeks, since we're leaving tomorrow for South Bend to attend my husband's 35th college reunion, and right afterward, we're going to spend about a week visiting with the twins and their two little sisters out in the Midwest...
Such is the life of a jet-setter/world traveler/would-be homebody/besotted Grammy.
But stay tuned, because more installments of the ABC Book will be coming, sooner rather than later. I am determined to run off copies of this book for my grandchildren this Christmas!
