I love the fall! The colors, the festivities, the perfect jacket and jean weather. Halloween and Christmas on the horizon, what's not to love? I always try to create a Halloween image and this year, it's these two lovely ladies who will usher in the season.
I have always considered fall the season to start anew. I guess it's because the school year always represented a fresh start. Lovely new school supplies, new things to learn and new friends to make. School never quite worked out the way I had hoped as far as redeeming my (somewhat lacking) social skills but I always learned something new and was excited by an interesting subject or an enthusiastic teacher. And, so many books to read! Library and Art were my favorite subjects, times where I could get lost and dream.
I also loved getting the Scholastic flyers. It was just my mom, sister and myself and budgets were tight but we could usually swing $5 for a book or two. Oh, how I loved book delivery day! So, it was a dream come true when "Maya was Grumpy" was picked up by Scholastic. My head might have exploded with happiness when I saw Maya in this flyer. I hope that it will be an exciting moment for a little dreamer out there when they get their Scholastic order.
Keep dreaming, drawing and reading kiddos. It all works out wonderfully.
