As our most thankful month of the year comes to an end, my book characters and I want to give a great big THANK YOU for giving us life and joining us on my 1st book collection journey. After today, these books will not be available as I consider the opportunity to create new stories. . We also raised a total of $568 to support two amazing nonprofits. A donation of $318 from the Kickstarter fund went to support @donorschoose to help schools affected by Hurricane Harvey. A donation of $250 from post-Kickstarter sales went to support @sandyhookpromise to prevent gun-related violence in schools. . Thank you also to those friends who shared stories/photos of reading my book(s)! Makes my heart full. 😊 If you’re interested in a recap of my entire journey, check link in bio to learn more! . Cheers and thank you again for the support!
Day 137: Swipe left for a sneak peek to the pages of my 1st book #SiristheRhino! It’s about a green rhino who needs help seeing clearly. Siris (rhymes with “iris”) meets a friendly kiwi bird who gladly helps Siris and the rest of his family see better. (Fact: Rhinos and kiwi birds can’t see very well IRL.) It’s a delightful story that appreciates eye care professionals and befriends anyone who needs a glasses-wearing friend. Glasses pride for life! (Preorders coming this summer so stay tuned!)
Day 132: Born April 12th at 1:40 pm after 132 days of labor (lol) and weighing 1 lb each, my BookBabies (@bookbabyofficial) are born! But for real, I'm looking for support that would help me spread the word as I work to launch my Kickstarter campaign next month. Parent bloggers, children's book fans, glasses friends, moose enthusiasts, wedding planners, teachers, and anything in between, please PM me. (I wrote my own press release!) Much appreciated! 😂
Day 100: Today, I celebrate the 100th day of my 100 day project! Having created 2 children’s books in the past for my personal collection, I was committed to creating more children’s books in 100 days. While I still have a few weeks before I actually complete all my book projects, I’m taking this day to reflect on the journey and appreciate the importance of side projects. As Ralph Waldo Emerson famously said, “Life is a journey, not a destination.” This project started out awkward and vulnerable, but it became a huge source of self-development and confidence. Hope you can be inspired to start your own 100 day project too! (Check out #The100DayProject for creative inspiration as a new official season begins!) I’m going to take a break from posting now to finish up my books and plan a summer Kickstarter campaign for anyone interested in a copy! Thanks for the support and following! Which book are you most excited for? 😄
Day 99: And lastly, the book I started with on this journey. Coming Summer 2017, #SiristheRhino is a story with rhymes and redrawn with 30 full color illustrated spreads about a green rhino who needs help seeing clearly. Siris (rhymes with "iris") meets a friendly kiwi bird who gladly helps Siris and the rest of his family see better. (Fact: Rhinos and kiwi birds can't see very well IRL.) It's a delightful story that appreciates eye care professionals and befriends anyone who needs a glasses-wearing friend. Glasses pride for life!
Day 79: Drafted cover for…"I want to write a book about a green rhino who needs glasses."

Day 50: I first started drawing @SiristheRhino when I was coping with a serious eye condition. Today, it’s helping me cope with other news in the world. Showcasing 2nd book project tmrw.
