It has been a busy week so far! My postcards arrived (and look nice) so the kids and I are running to the post office for stamps today. Our friends just had a new baby and I painted a frame for them. I think there is a future for this dragon in another project down the road.....

Something New

This is a tiny bit of something new that I am working on. I am waiting to hear if I have the go ahead to move forward on it.... the suspense is killing me! In other news, my postcards have shipped and are somewhere between CA and MN. Having such a nice time working with Christina, and feeling sad that the mentorship will be over in October. Oh, also getting some updates on my website soon, so that will be nice. Best wishes for a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend! I have some carrot bars, scotcheroos, snicker salad, and caramel puffcorn to make tomorrow. Hooray for potlucks and long weekends!!!

Thursday Morning Post

I feel a bit weird posting without any new art, but I only have ideas rattling around in my head right now, not quite on paper yet. I ordered the postcards for my very first mailing yesterday (many thanks to my husband for helping me, and to Christina for her great advice!). I went with my Cheese Cake illustration- here's hoping the cards turn out great! Found great rates with, so that was awesome! Also, I submitted some samples to a local card company and also to Hallmark cards (thanks to my friend Jen!) so we'll see what happens there. Looking forward to the CBIG meeting on Saturday, thanks for visiting the blog!

Cheese Cake

Here's a new one (little bits of it posted earlier) inspired by my friends, Phil and Amy, who are getting married this summer. I am considering using this for my first postcard mailer.... Hope that everyone is having a great Monday! Kudos to Rachel (the Vet) for starting up her own blog!

Frog Blog

I had a really nice surprise today- I attended a MNSCBWI volunteer meeting and was asked to do the artwork for our upcoming fall conference in October. I am still stunned. Here's hoping I can settle down enough to sleep tonight. Oh, let's all encourage my dear friend, Rachel, to start up her own blog! Looking forward to learning all about riboflavin in Finnish!
