my owl barn Valentine's Day card

I did this Valentine's Day card, exclusively for My Owl Barn. It's available as a FREE download and also comes with a matching envelope. Check it out right here. Can you believe I did a V-day card and didn't even use red?

Illustration Friday - chicken

I just had to do Illustration Friday this week, with the fun challenge of illustrating the word chicken. I haven't had the opportunity to do any patterns for awhile, so I combined the two. Don't you just love pink and red together! Maybe I just have pink and red on my brain, because I've been working on some things for Valentines Day. Can't wait to see all the chicken goodness over at IF!

hello there!

Hello out there to all my friends in blogland! I haven't been posting much lately, but I have 2 very good reasons.

1. I'm working a big, fun project, so I don't have much time for personal work, that I can share.

2. I'm reading The Hunger Games Trilogy on my new Kindle that I got for Christmas. Have you read it yet? I heard about it at a recent meeting of our local chapter of SCBWI. One of the co-chairs said, if you haven't read it yet, you should!

So, I downloaded the 1st book on Christmas Day and I've been a reading machine ever since. I'm on the 2nd one now. It's meant to be for the Young Adult reader, but it's got mass appeal, smililar to Harry Potter, in the fact that the main characters are teenagers, the story is set in a world unlike the one we live in, and you can't put the books down, once you start.

So, I'm checking in to say Hi and now I've got to get back to that book!
