Happy National Poetry Month!

Happy National Poetry Month! Shortly after I started writing haiku and well before I wrote The Adventures of Piratess Tilly, I jumped into writing one haiku a day for all of National Poetry Month in 2013. I feel like challenging myself again so here we go! This particular haiku was greatly inspired by my daughter and is a bit unorthodox as there is a quote and a comma. ;) Day 1 NPM16

Plushies Available Now!

Piratess Tilly and Yuki Plushie listing double pic BC I am so excited to announce that the locally handmade Piratess Tilly and Yuki plushies are now available for purchase! I am also looking forward to sharing the process of designing these dolls in a future post, as it was quite the undertaking for someone who doesn't sew. ;)  I am very proud of the dolls and love watching my daughter play with Piratess Tilly and Yuki. It really does take the story to a whole new level when a child can interact with dolls based on the characters.

From the shop:

These adorable variations of the characters, Piratess Tilly and Yuki, bring the story to life in an enchanting, cuddly, hands-on way. They help to encourage exploration and imagination. Whether everyone snuggles up to read a book, go on a family vacation or head out on a backyard expedition; these soft toys are bound to inspire story-telling and creative play. Where will Piratess Tilly, Yuki and your little one adventure to today?!

Check them out here. Thank you!
