Hello, Gorgeous! It's a New (Creative) Year

It's been a wonderful start to the new year. Much more than anticipated and it feels good to the creative soul. Uh huh. For the first time since I've started illustrating and working from home, I'm in love with my studio. I mean, I'm truly in love with my work space which in return, creates the perfect atmosphere for designing new characters.

Above is a peek at one of the children's greeting cards I'm currently hand-painting and is part of a special birthday series to be released later this year. It's going to be an adorable set so am looking forward to sharing more with you in the coming months.

Besides painting the birthday cards, I'll be creating a children's book trailer for "Ladybug! Ladybug!", putting together my own children's coloring book and beginning the illustrations for the next book in the "Flitter Flutter Crawly" series, "Bluebird! Bluebird!". Exciting!

Here's to a lovely week to each of you! I'm off to catch up with everyone here in the bloggie world!
