Donna Watkins wrote the words to On The Wings of Dreams for her story The Duck Adventures of Cheese and Quackers
Rod Ragsdale composed the music and we recorded the music at Blue Chair Recording Studio.

Go to Amazon.com and look at Donna Watkins children’s books.

We have enjoyed entertaining reading stories and playing music with children this summer at many libraries around the Little Rock area. If you have a party or event for children and want us to sing, read a fun story, and want to encourage children to read more, we can bring and sign our books personally to your children and its a gift your can give to each child at the end of the party that they can have in their home library. connect by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have had quite a bit of fun painting animals this past year, many of which I use in my children’s books. I have even been asked to paint a certain animal now and again for folks who want a Dabney original and I’ve have sold several works of art by word of mouth. Thank you for liking my paintings. You can ask me about any paintings you see, if you would like to purchase or if you would like a custom painting email me at email@example.com. Let me color your world!!! Tell how big you want your painting, maybe you want a wall mural for your babies room? Just wantprints, they are available at my online shop at Carol Dabney Etsy.com

I enjoyed learning how to paint with oil a couple years ago watching Bob Ross and with the help of a wonderful woman, Elodie Bingham as my inspiration. She says to allow God to show us whatever it was we didn’t know or Bob couldn’t explain. I was the choir director at the time at the First United Methodist Church and she was a part of that as well. We are just a couple of creative people having fun in this world with music and paint brushes what can I say. I don’t think I have an inborn gift for it, but I find it so restful and therapeutic that I continue to draw, paint and even have started illustrating my own children’s books with watercolor. It fasinates me and its fun. Besides after finding out it would cost me upward of $4,000 a book to hire an illustrator, I thought I should give it a try. Well here are four of my very first oil paintings and a couple watercolor paintings done last year. Today I showed some children my new Christmas book ‘Twas The Mouse Before Christmas watercolor artwork and they said they really liked it. I read my story to them at Noah’s school and showed the kids my illustrations. I love reading at the schools, I love singing with the kids, doing some art together and I really love Christmas!!! So we had a great deal of fun and I’m off and running and feeling very blessed indeed. My Christmas book will be published this fall or pre-order it at my online shop Carol Dabney at Esty.com
