My Milk Toof: Our First Year

It's hard to believe it's been a year since this blog began! Looking back, I can see how much the blog has evolved and become something I never could've imagined. Your comments and emails have been so inspiring, and I am extremely lucky to have such wonderful and dedicated readers!

My Milk Toof: Our First Year

And now for some news:

This could not have been timed better, but after exactly a year I am thrilled to announce I will be publishing a book with Chronicle Books to be released Spring 2011! They produce some of the best designed books out there, and I trust that the project is in great hands. The book will be a collection of everyone's favorite stories, along with some brand new adventures. As the book gets closer to release, I'll fill you in on more details. Lately I've been busy shooting the new book content, which explains why updates the past couple months have been lagging. But once the book is done, I promise I'll update more regularly.


So there it is. Thank you all for helping to make this such an amazing first year- hoping for many more to come!

Cheers,
Inhae

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MILK TOOFS

Congratulations. Your work is wonderful. I'm looking very much forward to actually acquiring one of your books. You're a great storyteller, and every time I see a new post, I smile - a new ickle and Lardie story always improves my day.

Thank you for the joy!

Molly said...

Inhae, in the past six months, my father was diagnosed with cancer, the person I'd hoped to spend the rest of my life with decided to go another direction in the girlfriend department, my best and only friend got engaged to someone who hates me, my father died, my best friend and I had a ton of fights until he stopped talking to me and has no interest in trying to make things better, and I found out my father left me seven figures in debt.

And with all of that? ickle and Lardee manage to make me smile and feel happy EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Seriously, I don't know how I can possibly thank you enough, but thank you.

Tiffany said...
