Merry Christmas

New Releases at Guardian Angel Publishing

I'm tickled to see First Spring appear on this page. Check out the new books - there's something for every child at Guardian Angels. We spent an hour autographing print copies last night. What fun. They'll make great Christmas gifts for children and keepsakes for friends and family.

Thanks for your support and Merry Christmas!

Until the next time.

First Spring Arrives!

Christmas came early when the print copies of First Spring showed up yesterday afternoon. We were both so excited to open the box and Dylan read the story to me. What a mom moment that was! Whew! I get teary-eyed just thinking about it. He can't wait to dive into the autographs. We autographed a book for each other as keepsakes. Anyway, sharing a few pictures of our big day and looking forward to the next one.

Until the next time.

Happy Holidays!

I'm so excited that First Spring is available to order! Click here to see the details at Guardian Angels Publishing. I've got print copies on order and Dylan can hardly wait to autograph them for friends and family. It's really fun watching his excitement grow.

Over Thanksgiving, we made our annual trek to the northern part of the state to make Christmas wreathes. A friend of ours at the local gun club lets Dylan drive his 4-wheeler around the property all year round to do various chores and help out. To thank Scott, Dylan made this wreath. Yes, those are real pheasant feathers - I plucked them myself. The wreath is made of princess pine. It has no scent and doesn't shed. Many people ask us to sell them but they are so labor intensive we couldn't possibly do it. So, 30 lucky friends and family get one each year. Here are a few other pictures to inspire your holiday! I'm decorating the tree (while I watch Tiger Woods play golf - always have to multi-task!). We received about 6" of powder snow last night and I hope to get out for a walk, too.

The wreath to the left is my favorite. Those are gum drop cones sprayed gold encircled by tufts of pheasant feathers. I gave that wreath to a friend who does my layouts and photography. The purple beaded wreath is on my door. Very un-traditional.

I hope you have a fantastic weekend. And thanks in advance for checking out First Spring. I hope you find it is a great gift for a special child in your life.

Until the next time,
Margaret Rose
