A Book and A Baker

There are lots of people I love. Heather Baird is one of those people. My sweet cousin.. painter, baker, photographer and pug lover is one of those people that lights up a room with happy giggly goodness. Heather has a fabulous new cookbook out called Sprinkle Bakes and an award winning blog.

And even though she is up to her arm pits in alligators, she still was sweet enough to come up with a Monsterous Cupcake recipe for our new Monster Reader Children's Book. So, what would Heather look like as a monster?

Well, here's a little lucky lou at my sweet cousin and Biscuit the wonder dog as their alter Monster Egos.  Be sure to grab Heather's book and drop by our Kickstarter Campaign to donate, or just to share it on Facebook. We can use all the support we can get!

Monster Reader

Hi Friends,
I've been working on a very special project since February. Monster Reader, the book I teamed up with Christina Cody to illustrate is a tale of Monsters, a library, family and all things Books! This wonderful journey is starting to wrap up and we are now excited to share the kickstarter campaign with all of you.


When you visit the project home you will find the book trailer, a project donation guide to explain what goodies you get at each donation level, and you can get to know the author, or as I know her.. my dear friend.

Custom Monster Portraits are an example of one of the treats you get by donating at the Legend Level. The donor would email a photo of the person they want "Monsterized". In time the donor will receive a custom watercolor creation of their subject's monster alter ego.
We of course could use all the support we can get, so please feel free to share some link love, donate if you can, and most of all enjoy the magic that is Monster Reader!
