Looking Ahead to 2012

by Hannah Holt »


Every time I visit the grocery store, someone stops me to say, “I see you have your hands full.”

Well… yes.

I’ve learned many productive things this year (like the single-handed diaper-change), but most of my ongoing projects are simmering on the back-burner.

That’s why I’m excited to join my friend Julie’s writing challenge for 2012. The goal is to write 12 picture book manuscripts in the next year. This challenge is especially good for slackers like me because Julie says, “In the end, it doesn’t matter if you have 12, 4 or even 1 [picture book] drafted if you’ve gotten more accomplished by being in the group than by going it alone.”

I’m sold. Joining this group will give me a healthy kick in the pants while allowing me to maintaining sanity.

Because my top priorities are these guys:

But a little extra motivation in my writing wouldn’t hurt.

If you are a picture book writer or if it’s something you’ve always wanted to do, visit Julie’s site and join the fun.

PS- Creation Station will be back next week with a big, fat Christmas activity book!

My (somewhat silly) Thanksgiving tribute to two things I feel especially thankful for this year: music and babies.

Summer is flying by. The school year is just around the corner. And my babies are getting big:

Life with four young children is becoming more manageable. Soooo… I’m excited to announce a new series starting in September.

Every Tuesday, I’ll post a hands-on activity for children ages 2-6. Every other week will be an edible project, and the weeks in between we will explore the other senses. Should be a lot of fun.

In the mean time, have a great end of summer!
