Sunday Sketches: Peanut Butter & Pumpernickel Love...


This weekend has been such a huge blessing to me as it was my very first Barnes and Noble children's book event where I read to the children my first illustrated book, "Peanut Butter & Pumpernickel". Afterwards, I sketched Peanut Butter, joined the kids in coloring activity sheets and then signed their books with little special messages.  Thank you to the parents and grandparents who came out and gave their children this wonderful opportunity. I look forward to seeing some of the kids' colored in Peanut Butter posters that many of the children carried home.

I'm off to rest for the evening and look forward to catching up with everyone tomorrow. Happy SS!
