What I Did on My Summer Vacation

8 Sep

School is back in session, and it’s that time again for everyone’s favorite fall report: What I Did on My Summer Vacation.

It’s been a wild summer for The Denim Jungle. We’ve traveled. We’ve partied. We’ve made friends. And, oh, how we’ve imagined—and crafted!

Here are a few highlights… with more in the works for the fall, including a crafty storytime at the free Imagine Children’s Museum book carnival on Friday, September 16, from 6-8pm and a fun little book event at Zoka in Seattle’s Tangletown the morning of Friday, October 14, 2016. (School’s out that day, so bring the kids on by and hang out with us.)

Interested in having me come to your library, school, or event? I’d love to know more! Email me at thedenimjungle @ gmail.com.

Publishing your own book? Hopefully this list will provide some ideas to help get your creation out there in the world for readers to enjoy.

Party This Saturday, 2/13

10 Feb

Hey, Seattle friends. Up for a little adventure?

Bring your imaginations this Saturday, 2/13, 12-2pm, to Ballard Homestead, 6541 Jones Ave NW, for a free community party to officially launch The Denim Jungle!

We’ll have lots of fun book-themed crafts, giveaways, and an author story time at 1pm, followed by a short talk about the making of the book. I’ll even let you in on a few secrets behind the hidden treasurers inside it…

This party (like the book) has been a labor of love, and I can’t wait to share it with you!

We solved this issue with our 3 year old by revisiting one of my favorite traditions growing up: Continue reading
