icing on the cake

I think one of the best parts about making books is hearing how they inspire people in ways I could have never anticipated. Which in turn inspires me. Right back atcha. It's really so gratifying to be part of this cycle of creativity and see how much talent is out there in the world!

I got a lovely e-mail out of the blue a few weeks ago from Sarah and thought I'd share a few photos she sent along of the cake she made for her daughter Daphne's first birthday.

Isn't it AMAZING?!? I'm so flattered she used art from Haiku Baby in a whole new way, and I think she did such a fantastic job.  I love how each layer has its own scene. And it is not that easy to "paint" in icing—I'm impressed! Thanks for sharing your talents, Sarah!

on my doorstep...

Yay, my Tons of Trucks book samples are here! The rest of you will have to wait until July (sorry). It is so fun to get that box of books. I finished this book about a year and a half ago, so it's great to be so close to sharing it with all of you. Jeff and I are getting started on a fun trailer for this book, so stay tuned for that!
