It's been awhile....

There is nothing worse than making excuses, but I'll try.  It was a very busy summer for me.  My son got married and my daughter had a baby.  We had a bridal shower, baby shower, along with that.  I also painted a 4 foot by 4 foot fiberglass lion for Detroit Lion town.

I also went to Mackinaw City in June and August and might be going again in
October.  I love it so much up there, I would move there in a second, except I'm find of attached to my adult children who all live near me.  I sure wish we could all move together.   I guess it's ok to dream though, although I'm not going to give up on that idea.

Sunset and Silhouettes

I love seagulls

Can you hear the waves?

My favorite beach I've ever been to.

All the while though, I was busy making clay cake toppers and ornaments.  I also wrote and illustrated three children's books.  "What???" you might say.  Yes, I spent hours, days and weeks writing.  I illustrated the books in the style of Eric Carle with some slight changes.  I designed my own papers in photoshop, printed them, made collages, scanned them and then manipulated them back in photoshop.  It was so much work yet fun the whole time I was doing it.   I worked 12 hours a day producing these books and I'm happy with how they turned out.

The first book is called, "I Saw a Purple Monkey."  I then wrote, "The Shell Lady of Cecil Bay." and finally, "Scary ABCs of Halloween."   Please go over to my face book page for more information.  My face book page..please like!

In the next few days I'll be posting some of my current toppers and Halloween items.  Here's a sneak peak.
