Merry Everything! & 6 year blogoversary!


Christmas Eve will mark my 6 year blogoversary! Woohoo! (insert flaying Kermit arms) This year has been filled with so many wonderful supportive friends that I end 2011 feeling so overjoyed. I mean, really, who would have thought a little isolated artist posting a few sketches would find the key to a whole art community of like-minded, amazing, incredible people? Hanging out on Skype, G+, and in person at conferences has been the icing on the cake!  Oh, and the dancing! There was crazy fun dancing! The kidlit SCBWI crew definitely knows how to get down and jump around!

Before I forget, I want to mention I was interviewed by the wonderful, Kathy Temean.
See the post here.

To see my Scroogebunny for our Christmas Carol theme check out Between the End Pages.

A fallen maple branch which budded out of season became my christmas tree this year.

I even found an LED crystal garland light string for it.





Found this great comic on procrastination to get me in gear for the New Year.


All I'm asking Santa for this year are opportunities. I'll take care of the rest.

See you in 2012!
