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.

Have a Fairy Merry Christmas!


Lots of stuff to show you all today! This week I coloured up my fairy digital stamp and decided to make it into a Fairy Christmas greeting card! I absolutely loved colouring this image-especially her hair! I think she is my favorite digi so far! I love her soooo much, I have another design on the way - so stay tuned! By the time I'm done, we're all gonna be fairied out! HAH! I think I've got my Mum hooked too! She's coloured this image about 5 times in so many different colours!  Plus I can tell that she can't resist the need to use glitter and jewels - who can't right?!? I have to say, my mother is catching onto this colouring thing too!   I can't wait to go for a visit and see her creations in person! =) So my darlings - here is the perfect excuse to glitter the heck out of your next project and add plenty of bling! Eeehehehe! I'm a sucker for sparkly things, aren't you?



I used Promarkers of course.
Wings: Blue Pearl, Cool Aqua (these blend beautifully)
Dress: China Blue, Blue Bell, Blue Pearl, Cool Aqua (for petal skirt)
Hair: aubergine, slate, and lilac / petrol blue, marine, Turquoise, duck egg
Skin: coral, sunkissed pink, blush, baby pink (cheeks)/ antique pink, baby pink (lips)
Glitter: I used a Glitter Liner made by Viva #908 Holo Iridescent. This colour is beautiful on almost any colour! Total must have (in my opinion) and dries quick unlike glitter glue.
Purple and white cardstock given to me (thanks Aunt Kim!)
Blue "Magical Christmas" Digital Scrapbook Paper (made by me - not in the shop yet, sorry my dears)!
Swirls were cut and given to me from my Aunt Kim - they were perfect for this project ( I seriously need this Die cut for future -I love it so much)!!!
Snowflake embellishment - cut from my Martha Stewart Punch. Covered it with my Glitter Liner and added purple jewel.

So here is a sneak peek of What Kim did with my Fairy Digital Stamp. She's soooo cute, so please hop over to see what she has done! Justwordz.ca!


Sassy has also done a beautiful job colouring my fairy and I just love it to bits!  Check out her version here.  ...AND if you are lucky enough you might even get to see what Tracey from Candi Craft Cards, did with hers too later today!  I haven't seen it, but I know it will be beautiful as all of her cards are!  It truly is amazing how one image can look so different!  I can't say enough how much I love seeing my images come to life! So if you've got a Redonkulous Designs card or craft to share-please post on my Facebook Fan Page! 

Latest Digi to hit the shop very soon is my Christmas Teddy Bear!  He's super cute and will come with several sentiments, plus a blank one for you to fill in yourself.  :)  He will be ready to purchase tomorrow...only b/c my hands are tied with Christmas decorating & cleaning our storage closet (groan).  Now that's a nightmare before Christmas let me tell ya! Hope the rest of your week is a crafty one! =)

Fairy Digital Stamp

Late post this week as I have been visiting with family, and then family came to visit us!  I think it was worth the wait with this super cute new digital stamp called Shy Fairy.  I'm still a young girl at heart and I absolutely LOVE fairies!  Several weeks ago I turned my daughter's nursery into a fairies and butterfly theme - hey, I have to live my childhood through her somehow, heehehe!  Then when visiting with Kim from justwordz.ca  we chit chatted about fairies, which of course lit a fire of a stamp I've been meaning to do for a long time!  I like this fairy digi so much I may have to do another...and then another!  =)  This will not be the last fairy you see from me!  Don't forget to add lots of glittery fairy dust to your handmade cards!  I'm thinking about colouring this cutie up, scanning it in, and printing her onto a T-Shirt transfer for my little girl!  I wonder if I can find some fabric glitter somewhere...if they make such a thing?

This past weekend we went to visit Nana and Papa Brown, where they were so kind to host a fabulous baby shower for our little Miss Serina.  It was so nice to see everyone, indulge on so many goodies (especially the ones made by Tina and Jamie), and drink an ocean of Tim Horton's coffee (not exaggerating here. Papa accidentally purchased a party sized container of coffee - LOL!).  We are so grateful for the gifts Serina received and having such a thoughtful family.  If you are reading this NB family, thanking you again for thinking of us! ♥

Cute Christmas Digital Stamp - Elf in A Box

Here is this weeks Christmas Digi of an elf girl. Inspiration comes from my life this week as it is a very exciting time of year for me and my family. I'm sure many of you enjoy the holidays, spending time with family and friends. My excitement goes a little bit further this year, and my husband is forcing me to contain it! YIPPY! I'm not sure how much longer I can hold out, but I am trying... So, let me explain. 

As you all know we recently had our baby girl Serina, and she has been a joyful addition to our family. It will be interesting to see how the family dynamics will work in the coming month with our other new little friend.... Who is this little friend I speak of? No, not a puppy!!! Have you ever heard of an "Elf on the shelf"? That's right, I'm getting excited about a little elf! But it's not just any little elf! It is a cute little guy who visits after reading a story book. We have to name him when he arrives, but Kolby is not to touch him or he will lose his magic! He is only allowed to talk to him; this under strict orders from the Big Man himself (Santa), and the elf is only allowed to listen. Every day, our elf friend will visit our home, showing up in a random place, to make sure Kolby is being a good boy. Then he disappears to report to Santa! What a cute, fun, and clever idea huh? I'm soooo excited, I feel like a child myself! Christmas is super exciting again! My husband, wants us to wait until Dec 1st to bring out our elf friend and I am not sure I can wait! Not only that, if I know my son, he will take this very seriously and talk to the elf, and be on his best behaviour till the 25th of December! He usually is a very good boy anyway, but for those odd days, when he becomes Mr. Cranky Pants, I will now be able to point to my little elf buddy and have an even more peaceful December! Woohoo!

 Now the big question. Since this is going to be tradition, we want to influence Kolby to come up with a cute, elf-like name. He is only 3, so he will need help with this, otherwise we'll be calling him "Excavator Banana Face"...Yes, he has a big vocabulary when it comes to trucks etc., but lacks the creativity for naming things that make sense. HA HA!   Soooo....

Any ideas for an elf name for our Elf on The Shelf tradition?

A Father and Son - Digital Stamp & Dark Skin Tones using Promarkers

This super sweet digital stamp called "Daddy's Boy" is my newest addition to the shop.  The inspiration comes from my husband, and how awesome he is with my son. This is how I see the two of them, especially as of late when Daddy comes home from work.   YUP, that's right! I am now on my own taking care of the 2 rascals while Hubby is bringing home the bacon!  It's been wonderful though despite my extreme exhaustion.  Jim was, and still is, a big help during this very busy time with our newest addition.  I am sure I am not the only one who knows a really awesome Dad who deserves this digi stamp...and yes, I will do a "Daddy's Girl" version too in the future!!!  Thanks everyone for your sweet comments on my last post of our baby girl! It really warmed our hearts and enjoyed reading them all! :)

Check out my other newest digital stamp "Workout Girl".  For a long time now, I've been meaning to do a digi stamp of a girl for darker skin tones. So here she is and I just LOVE her!!!  I am really happy with how she turned out and how beautiful  I finally got her skin tone.   Now, I'm not an expert marker colourer or anything, as this is still very new to me.  I confess, it took me about 5 tries to get these warm brown colours to perfection - perhaps it is a lack of colours in my marker collection.  But, like a little scientist, I experimented and finally found the perfect colours I liked, and figured out a way to colour her without making it too blotchy looking.   Kim will be doing a version too, so I am curious to see how hers turned out, and what colours she used - if she posted it this week.  Pop on over and check out her blog!  The Promarker colours I used for her dark skin tone was Cocoa, Raw Sienna, Coral, Amethyst, and Antique Pink for her cheeks.  Sounds scary doesn't it?  I used Amethyst for the really dark areas under her chin, her back, inner ear etc.  I found all of these colours had to be applied a certain way and worked and then re-worked to get a nice even tone.  Oh yes, I also used Maroon for her eyeshadow.  This was such a fun challenge for me and I really want to do another.  The image is actually 2 different versions I coloured for practise (one cropped, and one full version).  I want to complete this cutie with my fitness papers using the black design patterns, that is my reason for her clothing colours.  Next time I'd really like to do a purple and green combo, which I think would look so pretty with her skin tone. 

Hope everyone has a great hump day! =)

My Baby Girl! 12 Weeks Old

Hi everyone. I just wanted to post an update of my beautiful baby girl. She is the happiest little girl in the world! Even when she is super hungry and crying, she always manages to squeeze in a smile!  About two weeks ago, Serina figured out she has hands and can control them! The look on her face was priceless! It's equivalent to Spiderman realising he has super powers!  She is now starting to sit up, which seems quite impressive for a 12 week old.  Yesterday she discovered her feet, and scared herself while twinkling her toes!  She was thinking, "Wow, what are those things and why are they moving?!?!"  It really is funny to see these precious little people evolve, while we take the simplest things for granted - like our limbs!  Haha!  Having a little baby certainly makes you think about the silly things we get upset about, while the most important stuff is sitting right in front of our noses!

Take time out of crafting today to give your kids more hugs than they are use to - no matter how big they are! xoxo

Daddy nicknamed her "Funny"
