The theme of my week seems to be about lightening my load. I’m all for that. The flu seems to be waning, though slowly, and my Easter projects are all done. I even met another deadline for a freelance client, and today we’re headed out of town to celebrate my husband’s birthday – even though […]

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 […]

By the time you’re reading this, I’m very very very hopeful that my hard work this past week has turned into several new Easter products over at Smallful. 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 […]

It turned into a very unusual week for me. Technically, my head thinks it’s Wednesday, not Friday. That’s because I lost two days this week to the dreaded scourge known as Pink Eye. Birdie had a terrible cold, and then Pink Eye came to play and we just had a lovely time. That’s sarcasm. Though […]

The same dang project I was hoping to finish on Monday is still unfinished as of this post. Several emails still await my reply. I’m really not sure […]
