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.

To Much Work! DT DAY

What a week!  Yes, this blog post is a day late and I do apologize.  I have actually been doing some overtime for my work to get a project done before I leave for maternity.  I know, everyone always asks me why am I still working at 9 months pregnant and ready to deliver any day now???  Even my bus driver  I greet every morning can't believe I am still working!  She shakes her head at me - hehe!  But at least I get one perk - priority seating baby - woohoo!  Boy am I gonna miss that - actually no I won't, I will never miss the city bus - HA!  I'm not going to lie though, I am really starting to regret this decision to continue working until I pop, as I have had a persistent stomach ache for the past 2 days... but you have to do what is best for the family; plus the project I have been working on cannot easily be handed over to someone.  Thank goodness I now have it to a point where I can just hand it in without too many hiccups - YAY!  I am very happy with this accomplishment and so is my supervisor and project manager!  =0)

So yesterday was DT day!  Hop over to Kim's blog to check out some Redonkulous Designs' all coloured up!  I haven't had the chance to do that just yet - but I will make my rounds sometime today! :)  There is also still an opportunity to WIN FREE DIGITAL STAMPS, click the link for more details.  I can't believe no one has guessed past my due date!!!  Anything can happen folks!  :)

Saturday and Sunday were beautiful days. The weather was perfect and I was eager to spend some time outdoors. We purchased a new patio set so that Kolby, the new baby and l could spend some time outside.   It took Jim and I all day to put the set together, but it was a gorgeous day to do it at a nice slow pace, as I am not very mobile these days.  Jim set up some fun things for Kolby to do. His swimming pool, water sprinkler and sandbox were set up for him and he was all over it in seconds.   It wasn't long before I noticed Kolby drinking from the hose. I immediately warned him not to do that as he would get a sore tummy.   Of course I got the "oh yeah? what are you gonna do about it?"  smirk, and then a continuation of hose slurping.   I threatened to turn the hose off and empty his little pool and then he finally stopped.  If you read my Facebook fan page you will know that Kolby was very sick early Sunday morning and poor Dad got it good, and was caught in the line of fire.  Two showers, and major cleanup at 2:30 AM was not a good way to start the day, and of course I still had  to go to work in the morning.  I didn't really fall back to sleep after everything, and once again I went to work in zombie mode.  Throughout the day, I would check in on Kolby to see how he was doing.  Jim said he was perfect - as if nothing happened, and he is bouncing off of the walls as usual, no fever, nothing.  This was great news!!!  Once my work day was done, I had to back up all of my files in the event I couldn't come in the next day.  I suddenly got a phone call to hurry up and finish what I was doing quickly.  It was Jim in panic mode!  He and Kolby had been playing at the park located next to my work...

Here's are a couple of pictures I call "The calm before the storm".  He looks happy doesn't he?

Unfortunately this is the last picture of fun at the park. The poor little Monkey caught his finger in the swing quite badly.  His finger nail was red and bleeding underneath the nail. Jim spent a while calming Kolby down with onlookers nearby.... Then it happened again... Kolby got sick all over himself and Daddy!  Ugh!  So the panicked phone call I received from Jim - Let's just say when Jim and Kolby picked me up from work, they were both "shirtless" and stinky!  I'm glad we can all laugh about it so soon!
I was going to post a sneak peek of-my latest digital stamp, but I am not happy with it just yet.   It is of a mother and father holding their baby girl for a baptismal/christening card.  A wonderful  customer suggested the idea and I thought it was fantastic!   Thanks Carrie!   The rough stage of the card is almost complete and eventually I hope to get a few spare hours to clean it up.   I would much rather push out more digital stamps than a baby - LOL!

Oh my I cannot imagine going to work at 9 months pregnant you are one amazing lady. But then you come home to a toddler and husband and start all over.
I sure hope Kolby's finger is feeling better and that the sickness has gone.
Take care and don't forget to rest.
Kim xXx
