Humble Beginnings

While holding my breath and with trimbling hands I hit publish on my first blog post on July 6th 2012. Putting your work out there for the world to see can be a very intimidating experience.
I had been collecting illustrations in a tiny little drawing journal.
My first digital stamp, Hannah, was actually drawn to be a little under 3 inches.
I treasure this little book, as it has many great memories kept between it's pages.
 
The following digital stamps are a handful of my first. I truly hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
 
The last image, of a beautiful angel, is a brand new picture.  It was something that I was toying with then put away for later and was completely forgotten about. It resurfaced while I was searching through the pages of my book and I felt that now was a great time to share it.
 
These digital stamps will be avabile through Sunday the 24th, then they will go back into the vault until the holiday season. Then, I will reopen my Etsy store to collect donations for this years book drive.

  28. Holy Hanna banana! Talk about the Cuddlebug Cutie Jackpot!!! Isn't it fun going through your old drawings to see where you were at a different time in your life? Thank you so much for sharing all these beauties from your treasured book with us and of course for the brand new angel. We are so fortunate to benefit from your talent and generosity. I'm lucky that I'm not too far behind this week too. I got here just in time.
