Kidlit Blog Hop #70 I took the PiBoidmo Challenge

Hello! Welcome to the December 2015 Kid Lit Blog Hop. This exciting, now monthly hop, is where we develop an engaged group of people who love everything that has to do with children’s literature. Everyone is welcome to join us: bloggers, authors, publicist, and publishers!

Simply make a post and add it to the linky. (Please make sure to add your direct post only) If you are an author, feel free just to link to your blog.
Once you are done, then hop around to visit others. Please follow the co-host and visit at least the two people above your link. Please leave a comment when you do visit, we all like those.
Also, it would be appreciated if you grab the Kid Lit Blog Hop Badge and display it on your blog and/or your post.

We want to welcome a new co-host to the blog hop, Ann from Hits and Misses. Welcome, Ann, it is great to have you on board!
Our next hop will be January, 20, 2016. The hostess will be around to see you. Happy Hopping!

Yep, I did it. I took the Piboidmo challenge again this year.
If you are wondering what it is, its the brain child of Tara Lazar.  We are a huge fan of her books. You can  Check them out here

Her idea was to help inspire people to come up with 30 ideas to then convert into picture books.  During the month of November, she collaborates with the best and most current in the picture book industry and gets them to impart their wisdom.
I managed to make 30 ideas for new picture books in the month of November.

About 28 of them stink, but that doesn't matter.

I committed to it.

And I did it with a newborn in tow!!!


Now to make something of them.... That is my next challenge.

Or simply use some of my current ideas and re-invent them.

That is the beauty of the challenge.  So much inspiration on a daily basis.

If you haven't hopped over to Tara Lazar's Blog
Do yourself a favor and hop on over.

We love her books and she has been an inspiration. 

Happy Hopping folks
