Violet and Ted's Winter Adventure.

Carly and I have been emailing backwards and forwards almost constantly for a little while now with ideas for Violet & Ted. Until last week we were going to release a few Christmas illustrations along with a little poem, but we decided to try and push for our very first short story instead. Everything has come together surprisingly well in such a short space of time and for our first short, we're so pleased!

I'm so incredibly proud of Carly, she is such a talented illustrator who has the ability to put incredible images together in such a short amount of time - she whipped up the final illustration of this story (my favourite!) within a day!

Thank you for all the support and kind words so far, it means the world to us! Anyway, enough of my rambling, on to the story...

Thank you so much once again for all the wonderful support so far! You're the best! 
Violet & Teddy would love it if you would like to keep up with their adventures over on twitter - @violetandted

Love, 
Carly & Jennie
