Oh yes, I am a huge fan of Pinterest, no doubt. LOTs of great inspiration to be found. But when I find myself doing more pinning than creating, that's when I have to step back a bit. Somebody has to create that next awesome 5 ingredient casserole recipe, or try that fabulous art journaling technique, or crochet a granny square garland....and it should be, us! We were created by the Creator to be creative!!

So, what's on your creative plate today? I encourage you (and me) to step out and do it, try it, experiment with it, enjoy it! It's what you were made to do...

...and oh yeah, I'll be sure to pin it once you're done!

She's Always our Biggest Fan!

Well with school back in full swing and Friday night football starting again, I thought it would be a good time to debut a fresh new version of "Sports Mom" in my CafePress shop. I wanted to honor those Moms who tirelessly (and loudly) cheer their kids on at every game (in any weather), taxi the team to get ice cream, put up with muddy cleats and grass stains and finger sprains, all to support their kids. I thought she deserved a design that celebrated her dedication and enthusiasm!

I've added this design to a wide variety of Sports Mom gear in the shop - everything from baseball jerseys...
...and even laptop skins!

...and just about everything in between!

I hope you'll go check out the new gear - I had a lot of fun putting it all together! I think our Sports Moms deserve some fun gear to coordinate with their enthusiasm!

This is just the first of many, many new products and updates coming to my CafePress shop - stay tuned for more fun cute goodies to come...

Drawing to the Music

I often play music when I draw (or paint or write or do housework) - do you? Or do you do better with it quiet? Well today, I have Michael Buble on my player and I do believe I can draw better while he sings :o). Now if I could just stop getting up and dancing every other song, I might actually accomplish some things...

So here's a little serenade for whatever you are doing right now - I guarantee it'll make it go smoooother...

PS friends...I am still here, it is still oppressively hot in Houston, and I am still drawing and designing non-stop, trying to get a whole new set of products ready to debut for the Fall. I really appreciate you stopping by to see what I'm up to and check in on me! Hang on with me just a bit longer until I can debut some really fun stuff! It won't be long now...

You just have to laugh...

When it's 104 degrees outside, and you're a heatwave hostage, you just have to laugh...and color! Feel free to grab my little coloring page as my gift to you for your personal use - and get coloring before your crayons melt! 
(click the image, then right click and "Save As" - then just print and enjoy!)

I'm sorry I have been away from the blog for so long - I was out of town at a women's conference most of last week (connecting with old friends from Colorado) and I have been working on a licensing project and a blog design I have been working on a grown up girl coloring book idea (the coloring sheet is from that project). If you enjoy coloring, I'd love to hear from you. I find it very you? Anyway, look for more from me on the coloring book project soon!

Thanks for hanging in there with me...I just didn't want to let one more day without stopping to say hi! Stay cool friends - we'll chat again real soon!
