When I am not Illustrating...

This is what I do when I am not illustrating.  It felt great to get my hands dirty with some good old paint, wood, and hot glue!  Can you tell that I am excited for the upcoming holidays?  Yeah, probably just a bit.  *wink-wink*

A Soft Feminine Summer Mantel

Summer has been crazy around here.  So much for those laid back lazy days of the wonder years!  The kids and I have been having a blast swimming, picnicking, vacationing, sewing, learning, and exploring.  But today, I had enough of our chaos and made some sense of it all.  Now that summer is almost over I have finally brightened up my mantel for the season.

Hand crafted and feminine, I am sure to hear a sigh or two from my hubby who will kiss me anyway and love me all the more.  I tell him I need our home to inspire my art.  I think it will work this time. Good thing the next season is Halloween/Fall.  That is for sure less girly!
