I was in Barnes and Noble picking up a few books and I stumbled across the most wonderful new children’s book, Lost and Found. I’m always impressed at children’s books where the writer is also the illustrator, I truly believe any other way the writers vision gets lost. The illustration style is so pretty and modern, it reminds me of the books I loved as a Kid, and still hold dear to my heart. Let it be known that Oliver Jeffersis my new favorite illustrator. If you have some money to spend you can pick up a limited edition print fromhis shop, or you can always buy one of his books and read it over and over.
I’D BE GLAD to do that for you
I remember one year for mothers day we had to make “coupons” to take home to our moms as a gift. These coupons could be used for “one free hug”, “washing the dishes”, “walking the dog” and other easy chores. Last night I ran into these great chore cards from Heidi Burton. I absolutely love her humorous illustration style and think these guys would make great gifts all year long.
