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.

Handmade Card for Men & Summer Time Fun!

I just enjoyed an amazing 2 weekends in a row with family at a cottage my brother rented.  Yes, I put the hobby and computer aside while I enjoyed some of the beautiful weather we are FINALLY getting!  What a weird summer we are having.  One minute it is cold (20°C) and then the next day it is 37 °C.  Anyway, our weekends were full of fishing, tubing, barbecuing ribs, and playing Scribblish (from the makers of Cranium) - what a hoot that game is!  My Nana from England came to visit us again this year to enjoy some of our Canada Day shenanigans which included fireworks off the dock and celebrating my father's 70th birthday.  If you don't follow me on our facebook fan page then you haven't seen the card I did for my Dad.  I digitally coloured it, thinking it would be faster - but it was not.  It actually took way too long, but it was a blessing in disguise that I did this one digitally. The stink'n numbers on the card fell off during travel and glued themselves to the image. Luckily I have my mother addicted to making cards too, so she had some of the necessary tools to reprint, dismantle and re glue the card - Phew!  Anyway, this digital stamp is a funny one called "Giddy Up Cowboy".  My Dad is a big fan of western movies and some country this manly handmade card is dedicated 100% to him and based on a sketch I did a few years ago! 

Some Cottage Fun!
Ghost Buster's car spotted at Tim Horton's while passing through a small town on the way home!  I added some final touches! LOL!
I have been sketching out a new digi stamp - yup another funny one...but it has 3 characters in it *sigh* - this one is already proving to be very time consuming as I try to get expressions and poses just right.  Almost done the sketch phase though - YAY!  Hope you all have a crafty week.  Get outside and enjoy some sun too! xoxo
