Chanukah is almost over. It has always been one of my most favorite holidays.
Each year, I create a Chanukah card to celebrate this special time with a spark.
I am proud to say that my card is featured on one of the best blogs for writers & illustrators .

Welcome to my blog where I write about my two true passions, children books and gardening.
I do feel that there is a strong connection between the two. Every time children picks up a book, fascinating ideas are seeded in their minds.
Talking about fascinating ideas, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to visit Grimes Elementary School in Mt. Vernon, NY.
I presented the third graders with abstract ink blots and asked them what they saw. Some saw crabs, some saw jack in the box and some imagined a princess, witch and other menagerie.
Then, we created amazing books with colorful covers.
The kids are super creative. Don’t you think?
