Pheepie is the coolest ghost of my epic fantasy novel Beyond the Cliff and Courage. She's a darling. She hasn't noticed that she's a ghost yet... Sometimes it takes a ghost to save the day.⁠
She also makes the best ghost pies, unfortunately, no one can taste them.⁠
.⁠
📚You can find my novel in paperback or ebook format on every Amazon online store (worldwide) I can't wait to hear from you. You probably don't have time, but if you remember, a review can help an independent author so much. I thank you in advance.⁠
.⁠
.⁠
.⁠
🐌🐞If you miss my storytelling and artwork you can always grab one of my books on amazon. (paperback and kindle) I have 9 books available that will bring us closer together. ⁠ @vanessabettencourtart
.⁠
🍫Thanks for reading. If you like my art and want to support it, forward it to someone who’d like it or, even better buy them one of my books or a commission.⁠ ⁠

Shout out to my dad for rescuing me as I screamed my head off in the garage when a million creepy crawling bugs and spiders crawled around me while I folded these inflatables while I organized them back into boxes. All is good now (phew!) folded neatly, cataloged into family storage app and drop box inventory, and labeled. ALL YOU BUGS AND SPIDERS CAN GO TO HELL! #daddysgirl #bugsandspiders #homeorganization #ocd #tillnextyearHalloween #storage

... BUG RESCUE...
🕷 we picked up this beautiful book at a local store recently and it inspired me to create this simple fine motor activity
🕷I used curling ribbon and had to tape in onto the play tray to stop it slipping around. Then I added some plain white rice along with various bugs, spiders and some sticks and leaves
🕷 James found the roll of curling ribbon and had more fun unraveling it to make his own ‘webs’ around the house. Eloise enjoyed pulling the bugs out of the tray and bringing them to me
🕷have you added any new books to your collection lately?

What is your favorite insect?⠀
Ivanna Ladybug was kidnapped by spiders... it's up to Aion to bring her back, or...so he thought.⠀

Thank you so much to all who are now reading this book. It will mean the world to me as an independent author and illustrator if you could review it after on Amazon. ⠀
.⠀
Reviews are very important for independent authors and artists. It builds the credibility of the product and gives people the chance to see your opinion about it. ⁣⠀
They might find in your description of what they need to decide if this book is their next favorite one or not. It is also a great way to get feedback and help me keep up with stories and illustrations that you love.⁣⠀⠀

Their little cheeks are rosy because it is too warm in the butterfly biosphere for long sleeves! But the butterflies were beautiful and everywhere!

Have you been to the new butterfly experience at Thanksgiving Point? Another fun adventure followed by ice cream. 😜
