My new Photo Book plus Poems! (For Sale on

This is my new photo poem book that I created with Helen Priem's and my art. I will be posting new photos of this book soon as I needed to change the color of the book and template due to a printing error by the publisher. Helen was kind enough to let me add her name to this new book. Here is the new link to the blue photo book:

The photo book was published for my grandchildren and for Helen's family. Art by Barby Anderson and Helen Priem.

I am so excited about this photo book with rhymes. I always wanted a book for my grandchildren and now I created one. Helen Priem was so lovely to allow me to use her owls, Gnomes, Pixie doll, large squirrel and crow in this book. I hope my grandkids will enjoy reading this book and seeing the photos that Grammy and Helen created!

Thank you Liz Stevens for allowing me to use your dear cottages in my book!

Thank you so much Robin. I think it is important to leave a bit of yourself behind and no better way for me than in my wool critters. =)

The book is delightful. I'm also a big fan of Helen Priem. I've tried many times to purchase one of your lovely creations on ebay, but I work a lot hours and always seem to miss out at the end of the auction. I'll keep trying.

Congratulations on your book!

Oh thank you so much Susan. I hope you win a critter some day. eBay is a funny place and sometimes the bidding wars are fierce and other times I can send off a critter at the starting price.

I am a huge fan of Helen's art too! And of Helen, she is a lovely friend.
