New Childrens Book Coming Soon!

Posted in Updates on September 28, 2009 by coleenmcintyre

After a long busy summer of drawing and painting I have finally completed all of the illustrations for my first¬† Children’s Book! It’s due to be back from the printer just before Christmas on December 14th and I will keep everyone posted. It’s titled, Baking With Friends, published by The Goops LLC.¬†

The owners Nick Beatty and Barbara Ross have been a treat to work with, and the process of creating this book was so fun and interesting. It’s a baking book for children (with the guidance of adults) – filled with good old fashioned baking recipes – and of course my own illustrations. The book is designed to engage families in activities that they can do together, such as baking of course. The book will also come with a CD in the back, filled with more family activities. I will keep you posted on how you can get your copy closer to the release date. We will also be having a launching party in late December as well. More details to come…

Live Music on Last Thursday

After overhearing Edriss Alexis (AKA Eddie) sing I decided to invite him to play at our co-op during Alberta Stretfair earlier this month. His soothing voice, guitar skills, and lovely song choices were a perfect fit for our art gallery, Six Days Art Co-op. Our customers and members enjoyed him thoroughly as they strolled through the store. His music was such a nice compliment to the artwork we decided to invite him back to play on Last Thursday. You can tell that Eddie really loves what he does, and we do hope he shows up every Last Thursday to make the atmosphere of the event even more special!
