Green Aussie Sheep


I am horrible at keeping track of things. I won this fabulous prize package destined for my nephew at Halloween and am just now getting the post done about it as I get ready to wrap his gifts. Please forgive me Sally. I was tickled pink to have been drawn for this little board book "Where is the Green Sheep" and coordinating book bag. My nephew and his father are very into sheep and the little dude is learning the love of books. Isn't it darling? Sally generously offered to embroider nephew's name on his bag for me. I think he'll love it for Christmas. Thank you so much Sally!

Since winning, I've also found nephew a little sheep ornament and a piggy bank that I am painting green to match the one in the book. I love finding presents for the loved ones in our lives, especially when I can keep it centered on a theme. Every year I get or make everyone an ornament of some kind that I put their names and the year on.

Be sure to check out Sally's blog, here. Lots of crafty Aussie goodness and a great sense of humor on the side.

  1. It's so cute what kids are drawn to! My little niece had a thing for crocodiles when she was just a babe. Perhaps she'd been a crocodile wrestler in a past life...

  2. You might like to check out some more of Mem Fox's books at Amazon or somewhere.
    She is a great Aussie childrens literature illustrator.
    I used to be a teacher librarian and loved to follow the authors and illustrators.
    One of her famous books is 'Possum Magic"
