In keeping with the apparent theme of 2020, “Well, that was unexpected!” I have been on a new adventure these last few months. But, unlike a pandemic or murder hornets, this seems to be a good thing!!
I’m making Children’s Activity Books!
Yes, the quarantine led many of us to try new things. My husband marinated and grilled chicken for tacos, my daughters redecorated their bedroom, my son has spent hours tweaking his golf swing, and I started an entire new line of books!
With the help of a nudge from a friend, I took the time I would have spent preparing for and working at speaking engagements (that were all canceled due to COVID) and I started to “dabble” in making children’s activity books. Then, the dabbling became an all-out obsession… and I’ve been having a BLAST!
My biggest line of children’s books are called Love Your Neighbor Company. They come in a variety of themes (I’ll be adding more!) and in ten different interior options. My hope is that the message of these books will encourage kindness, love, and friendship. They display a variety of skin tones, abilities, interests, etc. and carry the phrases, “Love Your Neighbor” and “Everyone Is My Neighbor” throughout! You can check them out here!!
I’ve also made golf coloring books,
Yes, I’ll still be writing and speaking in my “usual” way as well, but what a fun new adventure this has been!
What new thing did you try in 2020?
