APRIL 2016: Children’s Contest, Book Presentation, and Author Meet & Greet!

APRIL 26, 2016 – I received a delightful message from 8 year old Micah and how he gave a book report to his class at school yesterday on my very first children’s chapter book, SOOTYcinders…A Cinderella Tale! What a fun surprise for me! I had to thank Micah for making me famous among his classroom peers, even if it was but a small moment! His father even sent me a photo of his book report presentation poster! Check it out below:

Now back to the business of preparing for the release of TWIN TAILS Book 2 this fall, I have again pulled out my story illustrations to finish tweaking them…and now pondering the book cover illustration for my publisher.  Along with this, I’m toying with several other fun designs for zazzle.com and vida.com…so stay tuned for this.

In tiny bits of free time, I’m doing a beta-reading project for a new children’s book by author, Jessie L. Best… (read all of this blog Whazzup, CILLYart? blog post on:)

CILLYart4U’s APRIL 2016 Contest for Children!

APRIL 12, 2016 –  I’ve had a lot of fun spending time with Baby Penelope, our infant granddaughter that just got out of the hospital this past week after 3 months in the PICU! It is truly a joy to see her content and happy at home once again with her mommy & daddy…and to be able to hold her, hug and kiss her, sing to her and even tell her stories! I have not started drawing her pictures to color yet, but that time will come soon enough. After all, she is only 6 months old!
