Spent some time today making Valentines from tissue paper collage.
Something I haven’y done since elementary school.
Have fun with your favorite book- a good friend!
Today, Holocaust International Memorial Day, I light a candle for Amalia (Mantzi), my mother’s sister and Zonia, my father’s sister. Beautiful young women , murdered by the Nazis.
At the time of her death, Amalia was either at the last stage of pregnancy or just had her first baby. Zonia studied Hebrew and dreamed of going to Palestine.
I mourn the rest of my mother and father entire Friebrun and Einleger families- wiped out by hatred .
Here’s a full view of me with Pete the pea as I get ready to tell his imaginary cosmic tale, Astro Pea.
Coming out March Schiffer Publishing
Available on Amazon for pre order
I’m getting ready to present my board book, Astro Pea this spring. Pete the pea lives in a pea pod but with lots of imagination, a carrot nearby turns into a space ship. Pete blasts off on a cosmic adventure, encounters danger, is rescued by the Corn-Troll Shuttle and gets back to earth on a mushroom parachute . With our imagination , even ordinary veggies can take us all the way to space.
