Presents and My First Book

Friday was my sister-in-law’s Birthday and for her present we decided to take her out and go to a movie in IMAX the next day. But we didn’t want to go up to her party empty handed so over the week I designed a card and had my husband fold an envelope (because I can’t do origami) and then I made it pretty – she loved it!

In other exciting news, I heard back from my WoW friend today and I’ll be illustrating my first book! I’m psyched! She sent me the book with descriptions of the kind of pictures she would like to see, so I’ll be working on drafting those very soon. 😀

Sketched out one of my christmas-present-projects onto a canvass. I’m really excited about it. I drew it a few times on paper first and ended up making some changes, and it looks way better (I think). I also got toothpicks, which will be very helpful with this particular project…I hope.
I won’t actually paint anything till next week though, because my sister-in-law and my sister both have birthdays over the weekend 🙂
