Happy Thanksgiving!

I've posted a couple of new toys for Thanksgiving. There is card that you can either insert a photo in or draw your own design. There are also new place cards to print.


(Computer Tip – If the new toys are not showing up on your screen, try hitting the refresh button on the browser bar. If that doesn’t work try emptying your cache.)



"Appreciation is the highest form of prayer, for it acknowledges the
presence of good wherever you shine the light of your thankful thoughts."

Hello and Hello!

It's a whirlwind as usual here in the Toymaker's Workshop, lots of drawing, lots of paper toys... I need a snow blower for all the papers on my desk. I'm finishing up the last revisions for my Scholastic book this month and getting ready to start on the cover. It has been the coolest project that I've ever worked on and I can't wait to see it in print.

I'm sitting here trying to think of words good enough to say how thankful I am for all my friends and family. They are like a giant army of awesomeness and I want to kiss the world on the face for being so wonderfully kind to me.

Wishing you a relaxing Thanksgiving filled with all good things.

Best thoughts,


"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into
enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order,
confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a
home, a stranger into a friend."
~ Melody Beattie

""Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."

brings about a deep sense of peace."
