About Me

My photo
I'm a wife, a mother, and a full time illustrator. I have a son who is 8, and a daughter 5. 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.

Wedding Anniversary - A Glimpse into my Life

Well, it's Wednesday today - YAY!  See what the girls were up to this week using my digital stamps!


I had a wonderful 4th Wedding Anniversary last Thursday. It seems so strange to say that I have been married for 4 years because my husband Jim and I have been together for 14 years...YES I KNOW - it only took him 10 years to finally commit! LOL..and I never let him forget it! But honestly, I think we did the right thing by purchasing our house first, pay off our student loans (only took about 15 years - YIKES!) and then finally got married and had a baby after our finances were in order. Now a little baby girl on the way in 4 weeks - we couldn't be happier!   14 years in the making - planning our life together. From major career changes to family tragedies - we've been through so much together and I am glad we had each other to share these moments, good or bad. For now, we finally get to sit back and see what else comes our way! When you have kids, it definitely feels like a new chapter! No more late nights at the bar, but instead late nights rocking babies to sleep - No more eating peanut butter and banana sandwiches when you are too tired to cook...eer, least not as much -LOL!  So, this little back story of a glimpse into our lives leads me to talk about the gift my husband and son picked out together.  Have you ever heard of a Pandora charm bracelet? I think l am probably the only girl on earth who hasn't! Haha! This is what my boys picked out for me.  There is only one charm on it so far, and my first charm represents my son Kolby.  Its the sweetest little thing.  I can't wait to get one to represent my little girl next!  What a great idea to have a bracelet that tells a story of your life.  I love it - but boy, are they ever pricey!  I guess this is what makes it a special treat! =)

Happy 4th of July to my neighbours in the USA!  We had a wonderful Canada Day weekend, and Kolby enjoyed watching the Fireworks.  Sadly, I was not very mobile this weekend b/c my hip is giving me a lot of pain from the baby (my Doctor says I shouldn't be walking - HA!).  So taking her advice, I decided to remain somewhat couch bound and design some digital scrapbook papers and another digital stamp.  I have a pile of unfinished sets of scrapbook papers and felt it was time to get at least another added to the new store.  Hard to find the time these days-but I do plan on adding another set soon!  I may take them right out of my Etsy shop b/c they are such a pain to email as the files are so big!  It is so handy that my new online store allows instant downloads rather than me having to send 4 separate emails for 1 Etsy order!  Y AY!  This depended on what was ordered of course - but man, what a pain! Alright, enough whining - here are my new digital images, which can be found in my online store:

Cute image and I love, love those papers :)
So sorry you have to be couch bound for your last bit of your pregnancy.
Funny that if someone said that 9 months ago it may have sounded a bit luxurious, lol.
Take care and Happy Anniversary
