About the Author

Lin Wellford, ('Mimi' to Cameron and Catelin), is well known in the crafting world for her popular books on the art of painting on rocks. Here she has teamed with her daughter, Skye Pifer, to create an imagintative and timely guide to picking that just-right grandparenting name. Skye Pifer brings her sophisticated design sense to bear in creating a book that is as lovely as it is useful.

More About the Author

A small river rock picked up while walking along a creek in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas was the start of a lifelong fascination for artist Lin Wellford. She took it home and painted on a few simple details. The transformation was immediate and amazing. Painting in three dimensions made her little rock rabbit seem to come to life.
After years of painting hundreds more creatures of all kinds, Lin responded to repeated requests for a book that would share her techniques for painting rocks, as well as pointers on how to choose rocks and how to match rock shapes to their perfect subject.
Her first book, The Art of Painting Animals on Rocks, came out in 1994 and immediately became a bestseller. It was followed by a yet more books, each taking on a different subject, including painting flowers and little cottages on rocks, painting rock pets, projects for kids to paint, easy projects for brand new painters, and most recently, a book devoted to painting manufactured stones and edging to turn any outdoor space into a garden gallery.
In addition to her books, Lin was a frequent guest on HGTV's The Carol Duvall Show, and has appeared on dozens of national, regional, and local television shows to spread the word about the accessibility and fun of rock painting. She is also the author of The New Grandparents Name Book.

This is a handy little book. The authors did extensive research to find out other names for grandparents, I would have liked some of the definitions to be a little more detailed, but all in all a great book--esp. for new grandparents to be. I don't have grandkids {yet}, but am seriously thinking about what I might want to be called...

I bought this book because I am going to be a first time grandmother. Book is small like a child's book - approx 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches and there are only 64 pages which includes 2 pages for personal notes. It takes less than 1/2 hour to read the whole book. I enjoyed reading it but it was over priced @ $8.48.

We bought this for my mother-in-law and father-in-law for Christmas. We are expecting our first child (the first grandchild) in April and thought that letting them pick their own grandparent names would help them feel more included as our family grows. We also included a framed sonogram picture for them as well. This book was a big hit.
