To The Rescue!

Two small boxes arrived today via FedEx. Usually when the FedEx driver makes an appearance, it means a big box full of lovely products for me, then an empty big box awaiting my imaginative son to turn into an airplane, or a train, or a submarine.

Alas, that big box will arrive next week.

Today, my new fall catalogs arrived from Willow House. Grant studied the two little boxes and finally declared, "Mama, you need to make me a Buzz Lightyear costume!"

Immediately after dinner we set about cutting, taping, bending and drawing. He had a very elaborate plan and instructions that I interpreted as best as I could from an overly excited 5 year old. Insert Tab A into Tab B, whip out some twine, and......

A superhero, in the flesh, in my kitchen.

I think he's going to be an actor someday. I'm pretty sure he won't rest until he's battled Zurg.

A First

This is the first book written by my friend, David.

This is the first book cover I've ever designed. For real.

The book will be available in about a week but pre-orders can be placed by clicking here.

Some firsts are too terrific for words.
