My name on this blog is Grandma Blue. I'm a book designer, living in the Northeast US. I have 3 wonderful children, who became mine in their teenage years when I married my dear husband, Papa Go Blue. The kids gave me the distinct privilege of becoming a mother-in-law to three more great kids (one of whom you probably know as Phantom Scribbler), and the overwhelming joy of becoming a grandmother to 6 great younger kids, ages 11 through 2.
I have three siblings, one of whom you probably know as well, who is Yankee, Transferred. She is my best friend. You can link to Phantom Scribbler's and Yankee, Transferred's blogs through here, and I strongly suggest you do! If you haven't been to Phantom's Wednesday Whining yet (it comes out every Wednesday-- duh!) you're really missing a treat.
My work is deeply satisfying. I work in my home office, designing books for various publishers, and I'm always excited when I have a new cover to work on. I'm not the designer I want to be yet, but I'm giving myself the rest of my life to get there. I have several good friends who are also book designers, and I draw a tremendous amount of inspiration from their work.
My family has been a great source of comfort, support and love over the years. My husband, and each one of my children, children-in-law, siblings, and grandchildren, have their spaces in my heart. All give me so much happiness.
So, that's me in a nutshell. I hope to post something interesting from time to time. Please stop by!
