A friend of mine had a tea party themed birthday. It was the cutest idea for a party. When we got there we made big frilly hats and decorated them. I was just impressed by the variety of things she had laying around the house to decorate the hat with. Then we had all kinds of tea, snacks, and yummies. It's always good to get a bunch of girls together and catch up and reminisce. For her present, I thought it was a good time to do a tea party illustration! As always, thanks for stopping by!

So I've finally gotten around to open an Etsy shop! It's called Tophat Society, if you're bored...check it out! Right now I've been playing around with sculpey doing magnets and such. Every once in a while it's nice to create something just for fun. I'm going to have characters on there from my sketchbook and soon I'll put up some prints. First I need a nice printer....or know someone that has a nice printer...and now some penguins!

It feels like it's been five years since I've posted! It's been a busy year. I got married and had a book deal with Tyndale House Publishers for 120 illustrations all around the same time.

The book is called "No Girls Allowed" and will be published this fall. The illustrations are going to be 3x3 and most if not all will be converted to grayscale. I've posted some below. I thought posting all 120 would be annoying and boring to you. Soon I'll be working on another children's book, but I can't give out any details yet! The other picture I posted is a box I painted for the wedding. If someone brought us envelopes to the wedding (probably full of money) they could slip it in here so it wouldn't get lost. Because seriously no one wants to loose money. As always thank you for visiting!

There are fishies and coral on the sides!
