I decided to do a landscape today – I usually make them on the back of place-mats in restaurants. I don’t know why I think that the back of place-mats are good places to draw a landscape, but I always seem to. Anyway, here’s my non-place-mat landscape with deer (instead of horses).
This is just a quick note to say that the team I belong to on Etsy just started a blog! I’m very excited about the new posts and featured shops coming up in the next few weeks and months. If you want to see what’s going on with the Christian artists on etsy, you’ll want
After a long snow day and a really great conference call with some friends, I felt like drawing a flower. 🙂
This was purely imaginative and just for fun – wanted to try to re-create a style I drew a while ago. Also, I called it “modern fairy” because of the pink highlights and blue jeans. O:)
Wow, 2009 has gone already. It’s been a big year for me – I’ve actually made more life-changes this year than I really ever have. I obtained my driver’s license, moved out of my parents house and to the great white north last February, got married in May and moved into my/our first apartment, worked

There are alot of different people and organizations who are nuts about boycotting business like Ford, Walmart, and recently Build-A-Bear. I know all the people who boycott are making personal decisions and feel very adamantly about them and that’s awesome. I however, just happen to be of the odd crop that while I may not
Avatar is a movie my husband and I have been waiting to see since the first trailer came our over the summer. We actually went down to the nearest IMAX to watch the 15 minute preview in July…which only made us more excited to see it opening night. We wanted to get the 6:30 show, but it was sold out (we’d gotten there an hour early) and the next IMAX showing was going fast so we got our tickets for the 9:40 showing (yes, a 4 hour wait) and as the time grew near we were just hoping it was going to be worth it.
