Another Sample

Wow, another week has passed already! I just wanted to share another sneak peek at what I have been working on this week. This cottage porch scene sample is another image in a series of cottage-themed illustrations that I am creating for potential licensing. I will be taking it and many other new and recent images to the CHA Winter Conference in Anaheim in January. I am also in the process of re-designing my logo and planning my booth design. It's coming together pretty well, but it all seems too slow for comfort with the show just being 3 months away (yikes!). 

In other news, we had a blast at my Youth Group reunion last weekend! It was wonderful to reconnect with dear old friends. It was a special time that I will treasure forever! Oh, and I'd be hard pressed to forget the details because the photographers and videographer that were there captured every last detail of the humidity and then rain-soaked bad-hair affair. Oh yes, and there were skits too...and now they are videos... Good grief. Oh well, it was still a blast - I would highly recommend such a reunion if you were close to your youth group friends. It all came together through the magic of Facebook.

Well, back to the drawing board...the illustration I'm working on now is a still life within a cottage studio/craft room. It's sure to be super-cute, so stay tuned!

Have a great weekend friends!!

A Birthday and a Reunion!

Happy Birthday to my Sweetie!!!  
I love you so much - God blessed me more than I can express when He brought our hearts together!! I hope your day is wonderful, and that the next year is full of adventure and blessings!

We are headed to the south part of Houston for a very special reunion this evening - my youth group from church when I was in High School is having a reunion for all the kids who were part of the youth group from roughly 1975 - 1985! I spent a lot of quality time with these old friends and I am really looking forward to reconnecting!! Here's a photo of a small group of us from one of our youth trips to Tennessee in 1978 - that's me with the red and blue rugby shirt in the middle (mercy young)

Should be a lot of fun...

Hope you have a wonderful weekend with those you love!! Can't wait to show you more of the art I'm working on...coming up this week!  Hugs y'all - we'll chat again soon....
