I can finally share with you the huge project that consumed all of November. I got an email asking me if I was available to create a Christmas gift for a certain granddaughter. Upon meeting this Grandfather, Ted, I knew I definitely had to say yes. Not only is he an established author (who has dined with Bob Hope, and golfed with Bing Crosby!) but his granddaughter, Josie, I found out, is a serious ball of talent at the age of 10!
The book is a collection of poems, short stories, songs, and thoughtful writings. I had the pleasure of creating the book from cover to cover. I whipped out my rusty InDesign Skills and put them to the test. The book was printed by Blurb, and I couldn't be happier with the result. Wrap around hard cover with premium matte pages...It feels incredibly cool to hold a real book that we all put so much work into. Not to mention, young Josie bawled when she opened her gift, which she told me, "...was the first time I ever cried because I was happy!"
Projects like this make me love my job. Even more than I already do. I met one of the coolest families that welcomed Matt and I into their home. And the best part - this is just the beginning!
To check out more of the book, visit the section on my site called, Writings of a Young Girl! I need to snag a picture of the author too, for you. She is the sweetest thing.
