I have long dreamed of illustrating children’s books. In my teens I would buy children’s books just so I could copy the illustrations and practice. Well… it took until I was almost 40 years old to make it happen but here I am and I am so very thankful!
I am grateful that I am living out one of my childhood dreams but MUCH greater than that I thankful for how this little publishing company fulfills another dream of mine; the opportunity to support, help and give to children. From the beginning of this company my partner, Trina Ayling, and I have written this “giving code” into the very fiber of our business. And although we are still only a baby company with limited resources we have tried hard to live by our “code”.
Quite honestly, I dream of having unlimited resources with which I could change the lives of children all over the world. In addition to that, I have a staggering number of other personal dreams as well! However, I think the immense needs of the world and the fear that comes in when pursuing dreams can sometimes steal the desire to do anything at all…
The other day I read this post >>> ‘Pencil in Hand’ on Talus Rock Retreat’s blog – this post and the quote included below totally spurred me on;

The images attached here are actually drawings that I did many years ago when I was a kid – kinda fun to look back!
Have an amazing Tuesday, Micheline
