Sunday Sketches: Christmas in July...err, August?



(Click on the book cover above to see the entire MAGICAL illustration in detail)

Over the past few weeks, I've been mentioning the various children's book projects on my plate, including a super secret one. Well, I've been given the green light to start sharing about it and if you missed the initial announcement earlier this week, here it is again, along with some super cute sneak peeks of the process.

Introducing, "Mia's Magical Christmas Eve", which will be available in November. This is another fabulous collaboration with award-winning author, Karen J. Roberts. I'm looking forward to sharing more with you but until then, enjoy this tiny preview during this little....Christmas in July....err, August!

I'm off to see what everyone else has been up to. Happy Sunday Sketches, everyone!

    Have you mailed it? I linked a little late today. I've love to be the first to review the new book!
