Well almost!  The thing that gets me through this month (cold, dreary & the tail end of winter) is Valentines Day.  I like to make cards, plan a special dinner, select flowers to make bouquets.  All to  tell the people in my life that I love them.

Jill McDonald Baby & Kids

Two weeks ago Antonio & I were at the Atlanta Gift Show.  For the last couple years I've been hard at work with C.R. Gibson building my Jill McDonald baby & kids brand.  My goal has always been to make beautiful, fun, colorful art with a touch of education.  The ultimate goal for me is to make art that kids & their family remember!  My product assortment continues to grow which is thrilling.  From puzzles, stacking towers, finger puppets, lacing cards & so much more. I will post where you can find the new products soon.  We are currently working on adding the JM products to our website.  So stay tuned!

So today is Martin Luther King Day & the Presidential Inauguration.  I've made a presidents poster for Oopsy Daisy you can find it here  Each president in numerical order is painted along side years in office & a fun fact.  Perfect for any budding historian.

I Think I Can

The little engine that could.  Such a lovely story & a new wall art piece I made for Oopsy Daisy.
You can find it here
What a great inspiration to just keep chugging along!  Big or small I think it's kind of the key to life.
