Something that I’ve forgotten to tell you about is MY BOOK, Christmas Decorations to Cut, Fold and Stick. I actually got to illustrate a book, all by myself. Well, not totally by myself, I worked very closely with the very wonderful Hanna Ahmed at Usborn Publishing, the designer of the book. Fiona Watt is the author of the book, she created all the wonderful constructions for the decorations.
The book is filled with christmas patterns in different color palettes, and there are a lot of christmas decorations to cut, fold and stick. There’s a total of 100 sheets in the book, 200 pages. You can create angels, stars, snowflakes…. It’s perfect for kids age 6-9, but absolutely suitable for younger and older too.
I can not tell you what an amazing feeling it is to get to hold my own book in my hands. Or to see it in a store. Or read reviews from complete strangers saying that they absolutely love the book and their kids had an amazing time creating the decorations (yes, it’s true, people really write these kinds of reviews). My eyes tear up every time (haha, yep…). If you’d like to get your hands on a copy I think you’ll need to google it, a lot of online stores says “out of stock” though.
