Hello Everyone,

I finally receive my boots. Yay!! I had given up on getting them and left for the afternoon. After being gone for a few hours I find that it had been raining, for quite sometime. I checked my tracking number to see where my shoes were and you guessed it, sitting on my front step. Suede shoes sitting in the rain, all I could do was laugh. When I got home I was thrilled to find that the delivery person had wrapped them and a plastic bag and they were completely dry.

(I did a little happy dance when no one was looking.)

Then over the weekend, the best event ever.
My little guy looked up at me

First time. I melted. It was so wonderful.

I started a new art journal and Nadia is the first cuddlebug in it. I'm still working on her set of pages but I'm enjoying a fresh start in a new book. I enjoy having dozens of blank pages and imaging what I will create on them. So much fun.

Hi everybody,
I've had the most unproductive day. I ordered a pair of shoes off of Zappos and they should be arriving today, so I've spent the whole day watching for the UPS guy to come down my street. I felt like such a little kid, checking every few minutes thinking is he here yet, lol. Even when I left the house I kept checking the tracking number on my phone. 

Now it's the afternoon and still no shoe package yet. It's funny, I'm so excited over a pair of winter boots that I can't even wear yet because it's to hot outside.

I did take a little break from looking out the window to work on a new illustration. 
This is Zoe.

I love it when I have a drawing that can sit on different elements of my projects. Versatility is good.
She could sit on a strand of ribbon with her legs swinging over or maybe on a framed box full of heartwarming text.

Or maybe sitting on another digi. This pumpkin would be great for Halloween or Autumn.

Good evening everyone,
It's been much to long since my last post. 
Everyone in my family got sick, but not all at the same time. We all took turns, so as soon as one of us started to feel better someone else got the sniffles. By the time we all felt better I was just exhausted. 

I wanted to sit down and draw but my creativity told me; nope, I'm tired and on vacation, lol. So, I decided maybe I needed to take a few days to rest and recuperate. But I don't really enjoy sitting for very long and I missed you guys.

So last night I popped out my sketch pad and got to work.
