Where Have I Been!?

I must be honest, I have purposefully ignored my blog.
(current work in progress at end of post)

And because I'm a very upfront and honest person, with my heart on my sleeve, I'll tell you why.

I have been using it as a means for advertising, and find that...well...let's just say not satisfying. I want my blog to be personal, personable, and an insight to what I do.

It just hasn't been that.

There are "rules" to go by with how to lay out your wording, how to catch peoples' eye, and so forth. And going on tangents and adding a whole bunch of words not needed in a sentence to get a point across is not okay. Unfortunately, that's just not who I am.

I have the resources (my husband, Brian, is a web designer and knows these things) and I have tried. Feels like I'm going against my grain.

So where have I been? Working, producing new images, and trying to run my etsy shop efficiently.

Case in point, I always come back to what this blog should be, for me. And thankfully I'm coming back. If you want updates or see the new products on Etsy, then follow me on Facebook:

Or sign up to be on my mailing list (link in left column). That update happens once or twice a month...usually.

Current Work in Progress - 
I don't know about you, but I was, and still am, a HUGE fan of Disney princesses. Yes, it is true. I want to do a few of them in my style. This is how I began to draw...by trying to draw Ariel. So here she is.

"The Little Mermaid"
Wish I had one of my drawings from 3rd grade to compare her to. I'll try to find one. :)
