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.

Baptismal/Christening Digital Stamp

Before I show off my Baptismal Digital Stamp, I want to remind you all that it is Design Team day and you need to check out what my lovely Redonkulous Teamies have been up to this week.  Leave them some love!

In other fun news we are having a BLOG HOP this coming Friday!!!  YAY! We are going to have some blog candy to give away, as well as REDONKULOUS DESIGNS is having their first challenge EVER!!! Please visit Friday for all the details.

Before I had my baby girl, I started a new Christening digital stamp. and yesterday evening and early this morning I was finally able to complete it. I will post it in my store later today, but here is a sneak peak.

I'd like to thank everyone for their well wishes for the baby and me.  Your comments brought a smile to my face and I enjoyed reading each and every comment. We are finally just starting to get use to our new schedule with Serina. She is still melting our hearts every day.  Kolby is still quite oblivious to his new baby sister.  Once in a while he will acknowledge her, but for the most part his trucks, tractors, and cars are his world. The other day I got out for the first time in weeks.  We took Kolby to the splash pad near our house.  I enjoyed watching him play in the water sprinklers with the other children.  I was also able to enjoy Serina and Jim.  What a treat it is to be able to stay home with my family and not feel the exhaustion and stresses from work.  =)  This is what I think winning the lottery would be like (spending every day with family).  Every afternoon Kolby and I spend some time together playing "Just Dance" on the PS3.  We have a blast - mind you I can't dance while I recover, but I can do some arm movements which is better than nothing - LOL!  We have also been spending a lot of time outside playing!  Serina just loves the fresh air too!  Jim and I make a point to do fun things with Kolby every day so that he doesn't feel left out with all of the attention the baby gets.  So far everyone is happy!

Redonkulous Winners/Baby Announcement!!!

I am proud to announce the birth of our daughter Serina Emily Brown, born August 12, 2012 at 11:15 AM. Weighing 7lb 12oz and 20.5 inches long. It will be a very slow recovery for me after 4 days of labour which eventually resulted in an emergency c-section.=(  My baby girl is an absolute angel and perfect in every way!  So far she just eats and sleeps.  She is very quiet and cuddly - and let me tell ya, I could cuddle her all day long and just stare at her.   Being up every 2 to 3 hours for feeding is definitely taking its toll on Jim and I, but we are doing well - we are just tired, and have forgotten what a newborn was like - LOL!!!  Here are some pics of her in the hospital.
Let's also announce the winner of the 16000 Redonkulous Reward Points.  Sammi, congratulations!  You have guessed the correct birth date of my daughter.  Your guess was made while I was in labour and being admitted into the hospital at 3:30AM (EST) - LOL!   My doctor had a scheduled C-Section for me August 17th - but we didn't make it to that date.  I don't think I would have made it that long when my contractions started in the very early hours of August  9th.  Sammi, please register at my website  Once you do that, I can add your winning points to your account and you can shop away!  =)

Since this is such a wonderful chapter in my life, I have decided to do a random draw for those of you who participated in guessing, and most importantly for all of the well wishes I have received!  Each and every comment meant a lot to me and hearing your personal reasons why the date you guessed was so important in your life made me smile, and  I even read them out loud to my hubby.  We both enjoyed your comments.  So this is for 8000 Redonkulous Reward points.  I have assigned everyone  a number based on the order of your comments (my comments and double comments have been excluded).  So without further adieu...the winner is.......................................................

CONGRATULATIONS AUD!!!  You are the 12th member in the comments!  You have won 8000 Redonkulous Reward Points!  Please register on my website if you haven't already and I will happily add your points to your account!  =)
Today is also Redonkulous Designs' DT Day!  I am very very late posting today - but better late than never right?  Here are the links to my Redonkulous Team mates!  Leave them some love.  I just got a sneak peak at Kim's blog and I sure do like what I am seeing!  =)

Digital StampTutorial - Colouring with Promarkers!!!

Soooooo excited!!!  Kim did another tutorial using my digital stamp "Friends Forever"!!!  Thanks Kim - your the best! I can't tell you how excited I get when I watch my digital stamps get coloured up in real time!  Kim's tutorials are the best that I have seen, and are super for any nube starting out.  I always say this, but one of these days I will buy those markers and follow Kim's tutorials and test my hand at it too.  She makes it look so so easy.  Check it out!

Well, my due date to have my baby girl was yesterday....still waiting.  Thought for sure she would come early, but she decided that she was comfortable this week.  Figures!  I'm comforted by the fact that it will be sometime within the next 10 days.  =)

Don't forget, today is design team day and I am excited to be able to see what my teamies have done this week!  Kim, Stacey, Shell, and Debs.  I thought this would be one I'd miss, being so close to my due date.  Sadly, I did not get around to finishing my latest digi - I know, I am such a slacker these past 2 weeks and feel so guilty, but it is almost done.  I tried to finish it up yesterday, but got caught up in the silliest details that I am probably going to delete.  Today's agenda is to finish up my digi, and also catch up on laundry...errr um, no, how about I have that baby?  I like that idea.  Maybe I can get all 3 done!  Wouldn't that be a productive day?  =)

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!
