Brock the Crock and I had the opportunity to visit with the primary students at Springdale Public School (@Peel District School Board). Looking forward to visiting again later this week with Gigi the Giraffe.
I will be participating in my first Canadian Society of Children’s Authors Illustrators & Performers Conference on Sat., Nov. 19th, 2016 at the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute in Toronto. If you are planning on attending please ASK ME ABOUT Ruby.
Thank you to the students and staff of Rogers P.S. (@YRDSB) that welcomed Ruby & I to your school today.
Here’s a picture of my new sculpture. Her name is Gigi and she is based on the image of the giraffe from my book titled, “We Are Colourful Friends”.
THANK YOU to all my colourful friends at the Richmond Hill’s Community & Cultural department for your generous grant. Your support made it possible to bring Gigi to life.
There are 11 characters in my book and I have completed 7 sculptures. Once I complete the other 4 sculptures my goal is to have an exhibition at The Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts.
If booking a JK/SK interactive workshop at your school or library you can now choose to have Gigi the pink giraffe visit your class instead of Ruby the red flamingo.
Finally, thank you to everyone that helped me pick Gigi’s name. I think it really suits her.
Thank you to everyone that participated in our draw at The Feast of Ages on July 31st, 2016 in Uxbridge. Congratulations to Elayne Bassett, Elisabeth Chomko & Lindsay Fung! You won an interactive workshop for a JK/SK class or grade 1 class. The workshop includes reading the book titled, “We Are Colourful Friends” using hand-held puppets, acting out the pages of the book and creating a collage. As a follow-up activity, children will receive colouring sheets.
The class will be visited by Ruby. A six foot tall red flamingo. She has a tiara, necklace and fancy high heels just like the character in the book.
Hi! As many of you know I have challenged myself this year to make sculptures of the 11 animals in my book. My goal is to make one sculpture a month. This month I am working on the fish and need about 200 more water bottle caps to finish the scales. If you have any extra water bottle caps please bring them to the Connecting the Community meeting on Tues., June 7th. Thanks!
Today’s national chocolate chip cookie day & my older daughter, Amanda & I co-authored our first e-book. It’s called–Our Colourful Cookies and is available at: http://www.smashwords.com. Suitable for children 6 years and up.
Thank you to the members of the Oak Ridges Lion’s Club for welcoming Ruby & I to your meeting.
