Once upon a time . . .

Once upon a time . . .
there lived a mother who really wanted to write a story.   She wrote and wrote and wrote - ideas, inspirations, and snippets of conversations, in a notebook.   She wasn't much of a painter so she used her daughter as a model for the illustrations.  


She sketched . . . 



and sketched some more . . .


doodling and erasing a lot of the time.



She used watercolors to add color to the sketches she liked,


and then started typing and typing and typing.  

Wish me luck!
