So a few weeks ago we had a day long photoshoot for our upcoming book, The Space Craft Book. We’ve done six of these all days shoots so the kids are seasoned professionals now. Well, that is everyone but Grayson who was on a one-man mission to destroy everything in his path. No craft project was safe!
Our book launch at Hobbycraft on Saturday was THE most fun. We were really excited about it (and also a bit nervous that it would just be the two of us, some balloons and 1oo paper plates to play with). It was so lovely seeing our books on display and for sale, we haven’t seen them in a store before, so we were definitely a bit giddy (and probably uncool) about it.
We had an exciting Bank Holiday Monday promoting our craft books with a lovely bunch of local authors at Yellowave in Brighton. Authors Mel and Madeleine read their books, A Cat Called Panda and The Sky Guys.
The lovely Lorna from our local art class, Story Carousel, made panda and owl masks with the kids. If you’re in the Brighton area you should go along to one of her classes. She is so creative and comes up with lovely kids makes.
Sorry in advance for our inability to remain cool throughout this post. BUT we are just too excited…we can’t contain it. We spent all of last year working on some really big projects behind the scenes of the blog and we’re finally able to tell you about them. We’ve been writing three kids crafts books. Our first two books (our books! Squeeal!) are officially published and available now to pre-order (available to buy from March). Our third one is out later in the year.
Reading is one of our favourite pastimes in our house. It’s so nice to be able to take five minutes out of the day, sit down and enjoy a little time together, delving into a world of imagination. My Little Button has even learned that reading another story is a great delaying tactic at bedtimes! We always enjoy hearing what others currently love reading, so wanted to share our latest favourite: a lovely book entitled ‘A Cat Called Panda’.
