About Me

My photo
I'm a wife, a mother, and a full time illustrator. I have a son who is 4, and a new baby girl who was born August 2012! Drawing & Digital painting is my life, but wish drawing digis was my full time job b/c I get so much satisfaction from it! For now it is a hobby that is mainly for my babies, and my escape from the strict guideline of the lisenced properties I work on in everyday life! I LOVE my day job too. I create small MMO games for major featured films, anything ranging from Dreamworks Madagascar, Ice Age, Tin Tin, or Puss In Boots to projects as small as My Little Pony, Barbie, and Hello Kitty to name a small few. I enjoy painting traditionally and digitally, and there are days where I wish I had four arms so I can do everything! Family comes first for me - life is just too short, so I try to find a happy balance between crafts and my full time career.

I've got a few new releases to announce today Fitness Girl and Baptismal/Christening for a baby boy.  Last week was my fitness papers and this week is my super cute fitness digital stamp, perfect for creating workout journals or cards for your workout support buddies!  My Aunt Kim didn't have to twist my arm at all when she suggested it - I sooooo loved doing this one!  Currently only available at my RedonkulousDesigns.com site!  Below is a sneak peek to show you what Kim has done with my Fitness girl-love the sentiment! Go to Just Wordz to check her out! She looks fantastic with my fitness scrapbook papers! She also did an amaaaaaaazing job on my pumpkin head cutie!  So hop on over!


Also up this week is a long overdue request for my Baptismal Digital Stamp of a baby boy with his mother and father - really this can be used for any family celebration as I kept it simple.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!  For those of you who celebrate Halloween, please be safe and wear some glow sticks!  REMINDER - This is the last day for my Halloween freebie! =)

Fitness Digital Scrapbook Papers

What a horrible time to have my internet go down periodically all week! So frustrating!  We had Rogers (our crappy cable/internet provider) come in the other day to fix it, and as I expected, they were completely useless!   He spent a few minutes in our home and then a few hours tinkering in the cable box in the neighbour's yard.  He never came back to tell us if everything was fixed.  Well, I don't think he did a thing b/c it's still failing.  We have complained more times than I can count.  The next call will be to cancel our service.  I am praying to get through this post - HA! *how ironic, internet went down again right after I wrote that.*  Hehehe, bare with me folks!  <:0S

Anyway, I've been so super busy this week creating! Today I have digital scrapbook papers that are perfect for creating fitness journals.  The one you are seeing in this post is for a female, but there is a male version on the way, but I am not happy with it to post yet.  They are practically done though.  I also have several new digital stamps in production.  I have a female working out to go with my papers, it is in the sketch stage and I am so super excited to get her done because she is soooo cute!  I've got an an angel that is almost ready for release!  A baptismal for a boy, don't worry ladies it is almost done too - but I keep putting it off.  Shame on me for not doing this one sooner - sorry Kate.  Saw your message Hun, but hadn't the time to reply.  I should have her done this weekend.  If you need it before the weekend, let me know.  I almost have 2 completed sets of Christmas papers too, stay turned because these ones are beautiful!  My Mum had a sneak peak of these papers and she told me yesterday how beautiful they printed on Glossy Paper.  Have not tried that one yet - LOL!  Anyway, I better get these papers into the shop before my internet goes down again. *sigh*  Hope you all are having a better week than me!  Don't forget about my free digi stamp, you had better hurry b/c she is going up for regular price very soon.  :)

Handmade Gift - Christmas Candle

For the past 2 weeks I've stepped away from my computer to enjoy my family and of course some Thanksgiving festivities here in Canada.  My mum and I have been up to trouble this passed long weekend - crafting, and sharing our exciting new toys and crafty gadgets!  What fun!  Together we experimented with some candle making. We don't have one of those heat guns for crafting, so my Mum brought out her ancient old paint stripper - YIKES!  I guess you can say it is the Uzi of all heat guns - Ha! But ya Know what?  It actually worked...err..umm...well, after two candle casualties, but we finally mastered it!  Hehehe! 

First I coloured my Cuddly Christmas Penguin digital stamp with Promarkers.   You can buy him here.  Next, I scanned it into my computer at 300 dpi (I'll be making several of these for gifts and this will save a ton of time especially if I want to make a matching card).  If you want to skip this step, use the image you coloured on the desired paper.  Next I printed it on Canon Photo quality paper.  I cut out the image as tight as I could, leaving a little bit of white.  Next, I place the image on a pure white candle purchased from Walmart - $3.  The dollar store usually has these, but none were to be found as they still have their Halloween stuff out. I used waxed paper/grease proof paper to cover the image and pulled it tightly across the image.  Make sure your Waxed Paper doesn't have wrinkles or creases.  While holding it tight with an oven glove, I used the heat gun/paint stripper on HIGH with my other hand, moving it with a smooth even motion over the covered image.  Don't leave it in one spot for too long though b/c you don't want the candle to melt unevenly as it can be a real pain to re-shape it.  WARNING - CANDLE MAY DRIP.  I used a metal cookie sheet covered with tin foil to catch the wax drippings.  Once the image changes from a foggy look to a clear look, it is time to turn off your heat gun and slowly peel it off of your candle.  Tada!  A beautiful smooth candle, with a gorgeous image made by you!  YAY!  Now decorate your candle!  I used silver ribbon and red rope for the base (nice choice Mum), pearl stars for snowflakes, and glitter on his hat. This was a lot of fun, and I can't wait to make more!  Great idea huh? This would make the cutest gift for "Secret Santa" for a co-worker, or beautiful Christmas decorations for yourself or friend.  This candle is meant for decoration purposes and not meant to be lit for obvious reasons, so make sure you remind the person if you choose to give it away.  Have fun with this project - I promise, you will want to make more!  =)  Have a crafty Wednesday everyone!
