Koi Flags!

These fish flags are so easy to make and fun to watch spin in the breeze.





Hello and hello!

It's been several months since my last newsletter. I've been illustrating lots of children's books and that has made me very happy. Making paper toys makes me happy too, so here and there, as time permitted, I''ve been doodling some toys for you to make. I hope that you like them!

Autumn is a time of change, back to school, leaves turning colors and hot tea instead of lemonade. I hope that this Fall that some creative activity stricks your fancy and that you find yourself making something just for you.

Best thoughts,
