You heard me correctly.
And yes, it's just a children's book.
But...it's something that I've been wanting to do for so long. Specifically write a book about the Christmas story. I thought it would be perfect to sell as well as my nativity sets. And I finally did it!
This is a real true children's book published by "yours truly".
Prior to actually doing this, the only thing stopping me was the illustrations. I wasn't sure what to do about it. I wanted it to go together with the rest of my products.
Enter my talented sister-in-law...I hired her to illustrate this book for me. She did a beautiful job of it. I coloured her illustrations to add an extra touch to the book.
This book tells the story of how baby Jesus was born in a manger. It's told in a very simple and easy to understand manner.
I love, love reading stories to my nieces and nephew. It's sort of one of our "things" when we're together. There's nothing more cozy then all crowding together to read some stories. I love buying books for them and also buying books to have on hand when they come over.
I wrote this book as if I'm actually telling them the story myself. It's actually how I wrote the book. I told the story to my Mom and wrote it down as I told it to her.
This gives you a glimpse of the cover. I think it turned out beautifully!
And here's a sneak peek of the inside of the book. I'm just amazed at my sister-in-law's talent!
I had my four oldest nieces and nephew help me out with this book. Their contribution to the book is at the back of the book...and I can tell you, it's really sweet. It's child-like, but so sweet.
These books are now available to purchase either in store or oline.
Today I'm going to share a very simple DIY project. You can copy this if you like or use this to get your own ideas going. It's always amazing to me what a little paint and some flowers can do.
