Unfortunately I’ve been slacking on blogging! I got caught up in finals, but I’ve been off for weeks so no more excuses! So what have I been up to? Finishing up my junior year, which only took about six years to get to ;) I welcomed two new babies into the family, my brother and his wife had a boy, and my sister and her husband had a girl about a week apart <3 My family is ridiculously large, but I would not have it any other way.
I have also been working on some new art, as you can see in my portfolio. I added backgrounds to my mermaids, and added a new painting of girls building a treehouse. I also have a book dummy halfway completed, and the beginning of a troll story that I can’t wait to dig into. Tomorrow is already my next SCBWI meeting, and I hope I have enough done to feel accomplished. I think my goal was to have my book dummy completed-oops.
I also made a custom baby mobile for my Etsy shop inspired by The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe:
I might make a diy post for that, but I only took a few pictures of the process. I made the felt stuffs, and attached them to an up cycled mobile that I bought on Craigslist, so it really works and plays music :)
