Time to get back to writing

Inspiration for my latest picture book...
Very rough sketch of my characters. Meet Penzey & Poe!

The 2012 Washington State Book Awards have been announced, and the Scandiuzzi Children's Book Award went to "To Market, To Market" by Nikki McClure. McClure is an artist from Olympia who constructs stunning designs and images with colorful paper cuts. Her book highlights farmers markets, both the food and the people responsible for producing and selling it. So proud of our incredible local writing/art scene!
Here's Nellie's copy

First Day of Kindergarten!

Nellie's first day of school! Can't even believe how fast the time has gone by.  I have been caring for Miss Nellie "Bean" since she was 5 months old, and now she's 5 years old and off to school!

Happy Back to School!
