I have to confess, I didn't start out to do a children's book. The pictures are made from my homemade paper. I was making Christmas gifts, dinosaurs for grandnephews - Nate and Ian, ballerinas for grandniece - Kennedy. The thank you cards were wonderful! Which inspired more pictures and the story poems. We now have a new granddaughter - Zena, so I'll be getting back to working on the Ballerina story.
