I have a special guest I’d like to introduce you to today- a very lovely children’s author Stacy McAnulty, and her adorable Christmas book DEAR SANTASAURUS. Stacy is sharing a fun kids craft and, as part of a book blog tour, a special cookie recipe for you!
As an author, I get to be creative every day. I create characters and plots and new worlds. Like in my new book, DEAR SANTASAURUS (Boyds Mills Press, 2013) I created a mischievous dinosaur named Ernest. I love my job! Being creative also influences my other (and more important job)—being a mom of three.
I always encourage my kids to create Christmas gifts for our family. This year we are making paper bag books. It’s simple and fun. And it can take minutes or hours. (The best part is you probably don’t need to buy anything.)
I hope you have all enjoyed hearing from Stacy! I know I’ll be giving her cookie recipe a try, and stopping by the other blogs on the DEAR SANTASAURUS book tour to see what other yummy recipes she’s sharing!
In the meantime, a huge thank you to Stacy because she has offered one of my Just a Little Creativity readers an autographed copy of DEAR SANTASAURUS!
