Gee Whiz--The G's Are Finally Ready to Go!

I couldn't sleep last night (or more correctly, in the wee hours this morning).  While that wasn't good for my physical and mental health and well-being, it was good for my ABC Book.  Because I found that working on the G pages was a genuinely calming activity.  Doing artwork--sketching and coloring my little pictures, and dreaming of the day when I'll finally have a finished book for my grandkids--was a bit of a Godsend, I'll tell you.  If I'm going to be up anyway, I'd just as soon feel like I'm being productive.

So here are the G's, gang.



My husband appreciated that I got all the G's involved: the hard G, the soft G, and even the silent G.  If my grandchildren don't notice how generous I was with this letter, that's okay; as long as they feel the love Grammy put into these illustrations.

    1. I actually worked on the dad's face today. It looked a little too ghost-like. I think it's better now.

    1. I do, too, Donna--because he's modeled after a gnome figurine that our oldest son's in-laws gave to them, and it's always been on a shelf in their home. Our granddaughters will recognize it here, I hope.

  4. When I have grandbabies I want a copy of this book for them. No pressure.....but I hope it's finished by then (a couple more years at least).

    1. I want to finish by Christmas...but I haven't met ANY of the deadlines I've given myself for the past few years. So I'm not sure that's going to happen. But I am determined to get it done ASAP.
