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 139: Swipe left for a sneak peek to the pages of my 2nd book #WeddingPlanningGalore! It's a story with rhymes and 30 full color illustrated spreads about the fascination with wedding planning. The bride-to-be paints an elaborate vision of what the wedding would look like, but the groom-to-be thinks otherwise. It's animated and relatable to any couple caught in the wedding planning daze. It also reminds us that weddings don't always have to be about overindulgence, and it’s the marriage that counts! (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 98: I credit JLo in "The Wedding Planner" for inspiring my once dream to become a wedding planner. Coming Summer 2017, "Wedding Planning Galore" is a story with rhymes and 30 full color illustrated spreads about the fascination with wedding planning. The bride-to-be paints an elaborate vision of what the wedding would look like, but the groom-to-be thinks otherwise. It's animated and relatable to any couple caught in the wedding planning daze. It also reminds us that weddings don't always have to be about overindulgence, and it’s the marriage that counts!
Day 78: Drafted cover for…”what if Dr. Seuss was a female and wanted to write a book about wedding planning?” (Children’s book “Wedding Planning Galore” coming Summer 2017.)⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #The100DayProject #Illustration #CartoonArt #IllustrationoftheDay #CartoonDrawing #ChildrensBooks #ChildrensBookAuthor #Kids #Parents #ChildrensBookIllustration #UpcomingBook #ShowYourWork #WorkinProgress #CoverArt #WeddingPlanningGalore #WeddingPlanning #WeddingPlanner #AngelHaloChang #AmIDrSeussYet
