I just received a lovely message from my Insta-friend @maggie.spratt ( a Beautiful artist and wonderful art teacher from England) for the copy of my children’s book I sent her. .
Here’s a bit of the backstory. On June 25th last year, I posted this collage for day 82 from the #100dayproject. I commented that I only just learned that a Cygnet is the name for a baby swan. Maggie was amused by this and we’ve since shared some laughs over it. She suggested on that day that I should self-publish a picture book using my collages. (@natty241 encouraged this as well and I received some wonderful words of support from many others along the way.)
So when I finally decided to write Somewhere Right Now, I knew I had to include a verse with my new found knowledge of cygnets as a little wink and nod to Maggie. 😉🙏💕
Instagram can be a wonderful way for creatives of all sorts (and from all corners of the globe) to exchange ideas, give suggestions and offer words of encouragement to each other. I am very grateful for those connections and exchanges.
Just a quick reminder that there are still copies of my book available on Etsy. Link is in my profile. I really appreciate the support!! ❤️😊
