Getting Ready...

Daniel and I are in the home stretch of getting ready to participate in the Savannah Children's Book Festival this Saturday! 
Mostly, we are concentrating on Daniel's books and illustrations, which means that I've been busy putting price stickers on books and printing and matting prints of his illustrations while Daniel is super busy teaching as his quarter is coming to a close next week.

Needless to say, we are both feeling a bit of pressure. However, Saturday should be fun with gorgeous weather for this outdoor book extravaganza.

We did decide that it would be nice for me to have some of my bookmarks there to sell, so I've been spending some time getting quite a few of those ready to go. As I play with them more, I like them better and better - I especially have fun creating a different back for each. I like that they are two-sided.
I have to update the photos in Etsy since they now look a little different, but they are still available for purchase in my shop. Click here to take a look!

When the book fair is behind us, I will update you on everything we had for sale there. You'll enjoy seeing some of Daniel's creations!

In the meantime, forgive me that I've been scarce in blogland and haven't visited all of your blogs as much as I like to!! I hope to make up for that soon...

  22. Viel Vergnügen liebe Silke und viel Erfolg dazu! Du hast übrigens Recht damit, dass der Ausdruck Martinsgans von dem Festtag kommt. Aber seit ich Gäns und Enten so intensiv beobachte und fotografiere, ist mir der Appetit auf sie vergangen - einfach zu schön, zum Essen! Eine schöne neue Woche wünscht Dir Luzia.

  23. I particularly love those first bookmarks!!!

  24. Silke - Your bookmarks are the perfect compliment to Daniels books! This book festival is the perfect place for you to sell these wonderful creations. They are absolutely beautiful - I so so treasure mine!
