22 Illustrators


5 Things I love:

  1. Creating books
  2. Making things people love
  3. Giving thoughtful gifts that strengthen relationships
  4. Teaching kids how to have giving hearts
  5. And especially involving others in the joy of doing something creative (because I believe EVERY person is creative!)

These loves coalesced a month before Mother’s Day this year when I saw this book sitting tucked away in a little store. It was like fireworks went off!

In April of this year my mother had 22 (in June #23 arrived) grandchildren ranging in ages of 17 to a year. 14 of them are under the age of 12, so this was perfect. It even had 22 blank pages!

With a little logistics work, it happened and I got it back in time to present one of my favorite Mother’s Day gifts of all time — from all of them! (This, another book, is now my second favorite – I believe this one tops it.)

Here are some delightful excerpts:

Simeon gave grandma a colorful superhero cape – it was fun to see some of the kids use that same concept on their pages. Kids are so creative!

Lizzy knows Grandma loves her hummingbirds so she drew one and pasted it in. Several of the older kids wrote notes on their pages.

  1. Absolutely precious…your mom is blessed to have such loving and thoughtful children as well as so many grands to enjoy and bring such fun and loving memories from each day. God bless you and bless her! So glad I got this email! Thanks Sheri!

    • I am glad I started this blog back up! I have heard from you 2 times already and that makes it well worth it! Hope you are enjoying your grands too. Mom sees 8 of them all the time, but the other 15 live out of state. She really loved this gift!
