Lily loves to draw. Loves it. I recognize in her the same passion I had when I was her age and it thrills me. Eager to help foster this love of the arts, I’ve had her drawings printed on t-shirts and plates and allow her to wallpaper her room with her creations, just as I did.
But, there aren’t many things that have excited me as much as our most recent project. I took some of my favorite pieces of Lily’s and scanned them in to the computer. I turned a few smiles upside down and arranged them to tell a (somewhat) cohesive story. (And a timely one as we hope to move in the coming months.) Here’s a peek…
I used Lulu.com to build, print and bind it and cannot wait for it to arrive. (You can print pretty much any book you can think up and, no, I wasn’t given anything to mention them. For larger books, I can speak to the quality of Blurb.com where I printed my blog-book)
The cost for Lily’s book? A mere seven bucks. But the fact that she can hold and read and share a book that she created? Pretty much priceless.
And definitely my favorite gift ever.
