Easter Picture Book Signings for Pysanky Promise

Here is my book signing schedule. I'll be signing my children's picture book, Pysanky Promise,

 at The Printed Garden in Sandy, on Saturday, Apr. 13th at 1:00. 

The next week I'll be signing at The King's English on Thursday, Apr. 18th at 7:00.

 I made an Event on Facebook for the King's English signing because they asked me to have at least 10 people there, so I wanted to get an idea of who would be coming. No pressure, right. I would love to see any and all neighbors, friends and family at either event.

My book can be found online at this link: books2read.com/u/31Oll7

Free Quiet Book Doll Pattern





Recently I posted a photo of some quiet book figures I had designed on FaceBook. I'm putting them here for free download if you are so inclined to make a quiet book, or just use the images as paper dolls. Simply click on the page you'd like to download.





Here is a colored image. 


Instructions:

To make the doll, I placed the black and white line drawing under some lightweight pellon on a light box and traced it will a very thin permanent marker.
You don't have to have a lightbox, you can daylight coming through a window the same way. I painted the doll and her clothes with acrylic paint. You can use craft paint, but mix it with fabric medium. I glued the doll and her clothes onto heavier pellon with fabric fusion adhesive. I let it dry well before cutting the images out. 

Wishing you and your kidlets oodles of fun.
