It’s been an amazing week at Small for Big “headquarters”. We have a new fur baby, and getting to know her is taking all kinds of interesting turns. Meanwhile, Birdie has become so obsessed with earthworms that when I picked her up from school yesterday she was keeping two of them in her sweatshirt pocket as […]

It’s almost Mother’s Day and I’m not ready! I wanted the house cleaned up, my workload cleared out of the way, and some suggestions all lined up for my little family on how we might spend the day. Typical mom approach right? Take everything over and control it as best I can? So, since none […]

If I weren’t so busy with such great things, I would take a week off. It can be a bit of a blessing and a curse when the work you love takes over your schedule. It will even out in another week or two, but for the moment, my head/computer/hands/schedule/life are overflowing! I guess it’s just […]

I’m working my tush off on a new very exciting partnership that I can’t share quite yet, but wow the weeks are flying by while I try to get it all done! Of course, this week went by even faster because I lost a couple of days to a really horrible allergic reaction. Note to […]

I’ve been sketching, model-making, adjusting, illustrating, cutting, taping, gluing, redoing, rethinking, revising, and photoshooting all week. It’s been such a blast. But, I’ll admit, my eyes and […]
