I co-authored this color activity work book for kids. I am so excited about the release of it.
My co-authors and I are having book release party to celebrate on Tues. June 3rd, 6:30 p.m. held at the Pleasant Hill Library. It's a great way for kids to kick off the summer with fun and education. There will be a lot of fun activities, take-aways and games.
Come and join the fun if you're local. If not, buy the book. It's graphic and colorful. Our book is more interactive than a traditional educational art book with activities, stickers, color certificate, quizzes, games, etc. It's a workbook so kids can work right in the book! The book explains color theory in a visual and straight-forward way that makes it easy for kids to understand and put to use.
To purchase the book go to ctpub.com
Become a color expert and have fun doing it.

My husband loves cornish game hens. As a child his grandmother would make him his own special hen for thanksgiving while the rest of the family ate turkey. I have to admit that I don't do this for my husband but I do try to make him a hen once in a while and this is my favorite recipe for the glaze.
- Roast Hens at 350 breast side up
- Brush with butter then salt pepper
- Bake uncovered, baste with glaze
- 8oz can crushed pineapple
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 3 tbls dijon mustard
- 1 tbls soy sauce
- fresh chopped parsley (optional to garnish hens)
- combine ingredients in medium sauce pan
- scrape hen drippings into sauce
- bring to boil
- reduce and simmer

We just got back from our annual family camping trip. It's always a good time playing at the river, hiking, roasting marshmallows story telling and crafting with the kids. This year Alivia taught a couple crafts: lanyards and God's Eyes. The God's Eye was a really fun camping craft because they got to search for sticks in the campground. Her little cousin Ella looks up to big cousin Alivia and they are so cute together.
