We'll have lots more soon, but in the meantime... Happy New Year! from Judith & Robin
We're so please and proud to announce that Mild & Mellow's Holiday Light is in the AppStore!
We love the winter holidays and in this appisode we visit all Mild & Mellow's neighbours to see how they're celebrating the season. Mild & Mellow's Holiday Light also has great music, a gingerbread cookie you can "eat" with your finger and series creators Robin & Judith make a guest appearance ... there's also a bonus matching board and a Christmas music soundboard, where you can build your own song (and our sound designer is a dad, so he made it gentle enough for parents, too).
We are delighted to announce our official launch party! And we know it's going to be great because it is being hosted by the amazing collage collage. We have always been big fans of the projects, ideas and beautifully books and art supplies that come out of collage collage (and we have had great parties there before ...) so we know you'll be in for a treat.
We'll be doing a fun Halloween craft, having some homemade cookies and colouring, and we will even have an in-store giveaway (which will be funny, we're excited about it) . We will also have some great swag to hand out. It's quite early to make this prediction, but it might be the party of the century. Only time will tell.
When: Sunday October 19th from 12 – 2pm
Where: at collage collage, 621 Kingsway, Vancouver, British Columbia
How: boat, train, pogo stick or scooter, it's really up to you
Leave us an RSVP in the comments below (not by email, please) and we'll put aside some swag for you :)
Nature Maps are a free form craft activity for small groups of preschool or kindergarten-aged children.
Making a nature map encourages working together in a group, individual creativity, thinking about the physical world around us, engaging with nature, and playing outside.Read More
The last year has been an exciting whirlwind. We're growing and moving....
First things first: we have this beautiful new web site and blog! We're sad to say goodbye to our old blogger blog here, but we needed more room. Thank-you to everyone who visited, commented and wrote to us on our old blog — we hope you come hang out with us here, too
We started as a series of postcards in clothing stores:
became a popular book series ...
...and now we are jumping into stop-motion animation with our new interactive stories which we are developing with the award-winning team at Loud Crow — the team behind Peanuts' A Charlie Brown Christmas, Richard Scarry's Busytown and Beatrix Potter. We're so happy and excited to join their family, along with our production partners, TwoFold Films and Sheepnoir.
For us, this has meant an amazing learning curve, especially learning to work with a larger team when we're so used to just working together — as two friends. Also: learning how to make stop-motion-ready art; learning how to direct ; learning how interactive storybook apps work; learning how to balance our family life in whole new ways and, possibly most challenging, understanding twitter.
The results have been rewarding and amazing. Our first storybook will be available on iTunes this fall. It's better than we could have dreamed. You can see how proud we are, above. Those are dolls of us! We had a cameo in one of our new stories.
