Well, I have been a delinquent when it comes to my blog pages- that is for sure! Luckily it’s due to less time in front of the computer and more time spent in the great outdoors. Summer has come and gone ridiculously quickly. With the beginning of September and the step kids all in full day school now, I finally have more hours free to myself to get back in to the Ark and the Art and flagrant self promotion as well as pushing my animal rights agenda and whatever else I care to blab on about.
I have managed to climb further up my alphabet ladder. I left off here with the letters E,F,G….well, now I’m at P! I’ll attach what I’ve done to this post just to keep you in the loop. When these letters are done I plan on getting them in kids rooms and classrooms and they will be available on a print per order basis rather than how I went about my puzzles and game…no more large print runs…better for the environment and my pocket book.
Here’s to a productive, inspiring and active fall season!
I went to the manufacturer who is making the game and puzzle pieces on friday afternoon. It was so exciting to see everything in production. I got samples to take home as well copies of the information booklet that’s going in the game. Very soon I will have my games and puzzles. Yippee!
Yep, I’m giddy with excitement. This 2nd version of my Endangered Species Memory Game is ‘greener’ and better made than the first one. Fourteen out of the 36 illustrations are brand new too.

I am getting excited! It’s been a long, interesting, educational journey to get my new products realized…but…they ARE getting realized! As I write this the images for the new Endangered Species Memory Game and the new Endangered Species 2 in 1 Puzzle Series are going to print. All made here in Toronto and greener than ever! Yahoo!
I’m in the middle of planning a big spring launch party/fundraiser too. The Jane Goodall Institute of Canada will receive a portion of all sales of the games and puzzles on the day of the launch. The hippest, most outrageously fun kid’s band EVER will be there too – Sho Mo and the Monkey Bunch !
I’ll keep you posted as to how things progress…
