Christmas Wishes & Snow Bunny Kisses!

Jennie and I are very pleased to present the first Violet & Ted (short) story! We've been busy working on this little Christmas tale for a couple of months, and we've managed to come up with something we're both very proud of. Jennie has written the most adorable story which really shows off her excellent writing style and I'm sure you're all going to love it! Without further ado, here is...





I hope you enjoyed this story and I'd love to know your thoughts. If you have any feedback, please feel free to drop me a comment below!
Violet & Ted will be returning for a special story next Easter, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

I'd like to thank everyone that has supported my blog this year, it means an awful lot to me. All of your comments are really inspiring. Merry Christmas!

  15. Omgosh, woooow! I have a huge smile on my face because I honestly love it. The illustrations are beautiful - the last one is definitely my favourite. What a lovely little story, I really like the idea of the bunnies pulling the sleighs! I hope one day you publish a book, I would 100% buy it, I bet the kids would go wild for it! Jennie's story is adorable, I wish I had a mini person to read it to.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS favourite!
