Catching up with My Creative Sister

Yesterday I was so happy to see Magic Fish Dreaming illustrator, and creative sister Helene.

We have both been so busy.  I really miss her!

We are absolutely delighted to be collaborating to work on a  couple of special library workshops sharing the process of creating the Magic Fish Dreaming  book as well as encouraging children to imagine, create, draw and write.

It was so much fun planning the workshop!   What a great chat!

Time passed so quickly.

We now have a plan but will also respond to the wonderful input of the children and make sure they have lots of fun and opportunities to create.

The lovely Helene signed some more books for me, so on the 24th of June when I do my next book signing at Mary Ryans Milton, you can pick up a book signed by both of us!

Helene has a number of other workshops coming up, including one sharing with adults how to illustrate on the 17th of June.

Helene had a beautiful surprise for me.  She gave me a special print of ‘Beyond Caterpillar  Days.’  I have now framed it and am choosing a place in the house to hang it up.  What a great day.  I am still smiling!
