Soon after I found Little Blue, my boys started making up stories about him, and in the spirit of “one up-manship” that you get with 3 boys telling stories, the tales got taller and taller! And, as usual, my boys have inspired me to create (well my options were create or go mad…I chose create…. this time….).
Therefore Little Blue has become the star of a book I have written for Riley for his 5th Birthday in September.
This is one of the images I have used to illustrate the book.

If you view the book HERE please keep in mind that I have never claimed to be a writer! Or a photographer for that matter!! LOL I am just a Mum :)

Just a mum of 3 gorgeous boys, often found armed and dangerous with my lovely weapon of choice (Canon 1000D) and its various attachments. Photography is the ultimate hobby for an accessories addict like myself. My camera is pimped out with a multitude of filters, lenses and the like… and then there is the programs and their plugins! HEAVEN!
OH… and I have a web site thingy… Check me out at

pretty please ;) xxx

    I just took a look at your book Tam. It’s absolutely precious!!! Brilliantly done!! Riley will love it, and when he grows up it will be a part of his childhood that he holds on to. You are a wonderful and creative mom. Your love for your boys shines bright and we here at RB are privileged to get a peek into it through your work.

  • Thanks Josie. I wasn’t 100% happy with the words but I have to order it this week so it will get here in time! lol Thank you very much for taking the time to look. :) xx Life is all about making memories :)

    I love your blue bear series…and am glad that Little Blue appears in my favorite underwater photo in the book. How many hours do you have in your day (must be way over 24) to able to do all your creative projects and the rest. :-) Keep up the creativity!

  • Thanks Miguel. My secret is that I rarely do housework… therefore I have time for all my fun and creative pursuits ;) lol Not really true, though I wish it was!. I have a terrible personality trait, that when I decide to do something, I just do it and bugger anything else that may need to be done! The time from initial idea to finished project is rarely longer than 24 hours! LOL It just has to get done! xx

    You’re so clever Tam! Your book is brilliant, I’m sure your son will treasure it. I love the colors that you’ve used throughout the book and I also like the hand written look.

    Now, I have to take you to task, what’s this “just a mum”? Being a mum is a very important job

  • Thanks Linda! My book was delivered by FedEx yesterday and I am a little pleased with it :) And as for “Just a Mum”…. It’s the best job I have ever had and certainly the most rewarding… but also the HARDEST! lol I guess that is just how I see myself these days… “Just a Mum” …. and I wouldn’t change it for the world!
    p.s. On all those form that you have to fill out where is says occupation , I always put Domestic Goddess! LOL
