Hi Everyone. Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving spent where you want to be with people  you like. Some of the things I'm greatful for today are my health, home, friends, family, cat, garden, talents, community, teachers and enough food to eat.

What are you greatful for?

My cup is full, he said to me, not speaking of his beverage.....

Christmas Cards

I've been designing holiday cards for a corporate client. Here's one if them...the Happy Snowman.
This has been a fun project, and makes me realize how much I love illustrating!

Copic Markers

I've been hearing a lot of buzz about Copic Markers lately...I can't wait to try them. Here is a link to their website. Both Teesha Moore and Mary Englebreit have recommended them on their blogs for use in journaling and art.

New pictures from old trips

I've been neglecting this blog. Sorry about that. I'm going to school three days a week (taking advanced web design classes), working part time (demonstrating espresso machines) and going to job search support groups. Enough of that! Here are some pictures from a trip I took to Buenos Aires a little over a year ago. I am ready to put on my traveling shoes again. The struggle to pay the mortgage and pay bills on my unemployment check every month is getting old. I'm ready to start a new chapter.
