NEW niece & nephew

February brought me a new niece & nephew!  My sister in law & brother both welcomed new members to the family.  Each live in different states so there's been no in person meeting but lots of pictures.  Today I'm showing the cards I've made for them.  I taped a large page of patterns & painted swatches together. Then cut out each family member. (thinking cut from the same cloth) Such fun to watch our family grow.  Welcome Esme & Parker!

Personalized Placemats

I See Me is a very cool publisher who makes personalize books for kids.  I've worked on two books with them & they are now making some other fun personalized items.  I'm posting 2 placemats they carry featuring my art.  I'll be sharing a couple more tomorrow.  If you're looking of a budget friendly personalized gift this will do the trick!  You can find them here.

Lucha libre

Luca recently saw a Mexican wrestler on tv.  This brief encounter blew his mind... the mask, the high flying maneuvers, the theatrics of it all.  I decided to paint him a picture of his new fascination. The world is a wonderful place filled with all sort of macho surprises.

Snow Day!

We are currently in the thick of a snowstorm!  It is not everyday around here that we get up to 15" of snow!  Personally, I'm not into snow at all... but, my boys are thrilled with this so it's doable.  I've been needing to start a new USA map project for a while now.  (always an ambitious endeavour) Today seems like the perfect day to dive in. I'll set myself up by the window, make a cup of tea & get going.

Homemade Valentines

Last night at our house it was all about homemade Valentines.  Nothing overly fancy or complicated just construction paper, crayons, a little glue & sequence. (my favorite!)  I have always loved celebrating each holiday.  It's even more fun now that I have a little one to share the experience with.

Say Yes to Fun!

I just added a NEW poster to my Etsy shop.
I've been all work & no play lately so Say Yes to Fun kept coming up in my mind.
Thought I could use a visual reminder.  This is a cut paper piece that was scanned.  Once printed I glued a few bits of metallic dots & confetti for a little sparkle.
My personal print is now front & center in my studio.

Slumber Party

I made a slumber party invite to send to a couple of my friends.  Remember how much sleep overs were!  I figure why not... You're never to old to be girly! (& I guess a little ridiculous)  Nonetheless, this will be fun!  Movies, popcorn, crafts, & cocktails.  Can't wait!
