New items in the works. Yipee!

by Catherine Jacobs on 11/06/21


Good news is I am healing. Every day my hand gets a little stronger. 

I have been drawing a little; I am still not using my thumb. Hope to start therapy this week.

I will be post my progress on Instagram at CatherineJacobs7999

In the meantime, while I wait for the healing, I have been studying 3-D printing and hope to be making these models once again.

I have really missed being able to use my hands to create models to help people.

This summer I attend three writers' conferences and hope to submit my manuscript and illustrations for my children's picture book I wrote. I have been working on illustrating it as well. The thirty- two- page show and tell how a baby grows inside the mom, written for ages 4 -8. Working title is You Grew.  Actually have a series planned too. More on that later.

If you are interested in learning when the 3-d printed models will be available, or the picture book please sign up for the mailing list that will go out once a month.

If you desire more information or want to see my progress as I go through therapy and work my way through various therapy putties, creating beautiful things, please visit my Instagram page. You can learn more about me personally and be the first to see what new pieces I will be creating.

If you have any ideas of things you want to see me draw or sculpt, please email me. My contact info is on the site. I hope to get back to portrait sculpting of real babies in the late spring. 

If you have a baby born at 37, 38 or 39 weeks pregnancy and have lots of photos and are interested in a portrait of your baby and will give me permission to sculpt your little one and use the likeness like the other models on this site, contact me through my email. [email protected]
You can see some of my illustration on my site www.catherine-jacobs.com.

Thanks for stopping by,
God Bless you and your family,

Second Surgery Success so far!

by Catherine Jacobs on 10/29/21

Dear readers: 


I pray you are well.
I retired from teaching elementary art, after 34 years, two years ago, just before covid hit.

Unfortunately I have not been able to sculpt and cast the resin dolls of www.godslittleones.com for several years. I had my first surgery on my left hand September 21, of last year.

This year on October 7, 2021, I had my second osteoarthritis surgery.  This time on my right hand. My surgeon removed a bone full of spurs in my thumb, and replaced it with tendons from my hand. It's a long, painful recovery. So far it has been successful. Praise the Lord.

 Lord willing, I look forward to eventually returning to sculpting. My therapy will start in about a month. I will be using sequentially soft to hard therapy putty to gain strength to be able to sculpt again. It takes many months.

While healing from surgery, I have not been still. 

I am learning all I can about drawing digitally, using single letter shortcuts, and 3-d printing. I hope to learn to 3-d print my www.godslittleones.com sculpts. I am learning at our local maker space at our library, as I do not have a 3d printer.

I am posting my progress on my Instagram page catherinejacobs7999.

Last year I created a channel on Youtube.  Catherinejacobsart. I have videos on me painting and creating art activities for adults and children. Watch for new time lapse demos coming soon.
 
This past summer I have written and am working on a series of illustrated children's books. My critique group and mentors from several Christin writers conferences have help me hone my skills. 
 
The first book is currently called Baby You Grew. I will be posting progress on my facebook godslittleones page  and  my catherinejacobs7999 instagram page.  
I am completing the proposal to send to an agent. 

Praise the Lord, I am a published author and illustrator www.catherine-jacobs.com. Two magazines have published my work so far.  Focus on the Family Clubhouse Magazine and Time of Singing poetry magazine. More info on my www.catherine-jacobs.com site.

I am starting a Glory Forms Newsletter to help keep track of all the progress in one easy place.

If you are interested in signing up for the newsletter please email me with News Letter Please in the subject line and tell me you give me permission to send it to you. It will come to your inbox once a month. I plan on having some digital downloads to help you. Please email me and let me know what you would like or need. [email protected]

 I can still paint and draw for short times. My hand is healing and  I will be able to get back to illustrating soon.

You can send me your email at the address above on the contact page of this site, or my www.catherine-jacobs.com site to be the first to learn the progress on my creations and know when they are ready for you enjoyment.

You can look for me on face book as well,  but I am not as active there, yet. 
Trying to figure out how to coordinate all the social media. 

I am praying for you. Please pray for me. Love to hear from you,

God Bless you!

Three Christian Writers Conferences!

by Catherine Jacobs on 06/19/21

If you are interested in receiving news about the upcoming books or model progress, please add your name to my email or newsletter. 

 

September 2020. I had a bone in my left wrist removed. After many months of painful therapy documented on my catheriejacobs6999 Instagram account, I am now able to draw again. I am still working to be able to sculpt models again soon as well. 

 

In the mean time, 

Lord willing, I am planning on attending three different Christian Writers conferences this summer.

 

Why am I going? I am seeking representation by an agent for publishing a 32 page children’s picture book titled “I Grew”. I have written it at a second-grade reading level. 

“I Grew!”

500-word picture book for ages 5 and up. 

Answers how babies grow in their mother’s womb. 

Shows the cute, cuddly, bopping, kicking and slurping process. 

Written for families with a baby on the way and curious siblings.

Connects this process to Jesus’ birth to inspire all ages.

Soft pastels radiate the warmth of the womb, wrapping 

readers with the wonder of God’s plan for each precious pre-born.

 

It’s a pre-nativity story telling how the creator of the universe put on flesh cell by cell to dwell among us. You grew in a similar way. You too were divinely designed, and fearfully and wonderfully made. You are made in God’s sacred image. Curious children can learn; when life begins, when the heart first beats, when they could suck their thumb and roll over and even when they could eat, drink, pee, and poo.

 

 

June 24-26, 2021 https://philadelphia.writehisanswer.com

Lord willing I am taking a work in progress workshop with Author Pam Halter and Illustrator Kim Sponaugle.

Please pray for me as I will also be pitching to agents and editors. 

 

July 18-23, 2021 https://www.montrosebible.org/OurEvents/tabid/113/page_550/1/eventid_550/1390/Default.aspx

Lord willing I am signed up to take a children’s non-fiction work in progress  with author  Annette Whipple.

And a critique with Literary agent  

 

August 26-28, 2021

https://colorado.writehisanswer.com

https://colorado.writehisanswer.com/spreadtheword

 

 As of today, I have plans to meet take continuing sessions on self-publishing and marketing. 

 

Hopefully by the end of the summer I will have either agent representation, a publisher or the knowledge to write/illustrate and publish my own children’s books.
