fortune and glory?
a book deal?
via surprise winged delivery
from the talented Margaret Bloom,
creator of wish baby.
"Whee! Wee wishies!
Pink twins...a blue...a yellow -
that's four...one for each of us!"
They are SMITTEN!
The genie behind the wish baby magic is
Margaret Bloom - a mother, writer and artist.
Her blog, We Bloom Here is one of my creative haunts.
From picture book-inspired projects,
to lanterns, fairy gardens, kid play and poetry,
Margaret's original cleverness shines through every post.
M. Bloom is currently knee-deep in a blog-hosted puppet swap, where participants create and exchange sets of homemade puppets based on children's books.
She is a great candidate for such a swap, with 16 years of puppet building and performance experience under her belt. Wowzie! All that, and a Masters in Counseling Psychology, too!
Thank you, M. Bloom, for our wee wishies!
Sugar Snack keeps cracking up over them.
We have been tucking our new friends into life corners
to see where they feel at home...
... and Blue is snug amongst the books.
Houses of popsicle sticks and yarn are pretty cushy
four wee wishes,
and four kids summer-struck
making a wild rumpus...
I guess there's not much else to wish for.
