Children's Book Inspiration: The Very Hungry Caterpillar

These days I am inspired by several children's books. These bright colors and the round wood balls remind me of a caterpillar, a very special caterpillar!

We love Eric Carle's classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Autumn Inspiration: Whispering Birch

I love autumn.
I love the warmth of a wood fire.
I love the tang of hot cider.
I love the crunchy pile of fallen leaves.
