Peace on Earth - Mir na Zemlij


Many years ago, I made a series of cards to benefit international relief projects related to knitting and women: The Knitting Project, Rainbow Socks, and What Works for Women.

WHAT WORKS FOR WOMEN was the successor of THE KNITTING PROJECT, a lifeline of 32 tons of donated knitting yarn sent to refugee women in Bosnia, Croatia, and Serbia from 1994-1997. Proceeds from these cards directly supported women's projects which helped returning refugees rebuild their lives and their communities.

From inside of this card to you -- Peace on Earth, Mir na Zemlji!

A Cake for Mama

My newest book, MAX MAKES A CAKE (Random House 2014), went through many drafts and versions on its way to becoming a book. Along the road there, it was once A CAKE FOR MAMA -- here's a sketch from the dummy I did for that story.
