My First Website!!

And, no, it's not mine. As you all know, I've been doing work for the Pink Apostles... well, here is the basic website. I'll be doing more design work, so keep checking back from time to time to see what I've done!

Brody modeling the DOC band

Thanks again Erin, for letting me snag a few of your photos... Brody looks awesome!

Also very cool: received kudos from Karen, at the cranial clinic for my work on Brody's DOC band. We'll see if Jackjack will need one next week!

Camp Venture

I'm currently re-working some scenery that the nice gentlemen attempted to do for my friend Kim, before she called in an emergency to the professional [me]. Should be done by the end of the week. I'll post some pics!

I'll give you a teaser photo... what I've done so far, half-assed stitched together.

*Sidenote: This does actually have trees... and is quite large. I'll take photos all along the way.

New Supplies, New Ideas

My flying companion in my studio, whom I promptly squished. Looked like a small, translucent red ant with wings. Must say the wings were beautiful. Should have taken a shot of them before I squished him. Though most insect wings are beautiful, if you look close enough.

YES!!!!!! New stuff means new ideas. New ideas mean new stuff! I'm so excited!!! Made plans for the 10" x 10" canvases, and also laid out a couple of box arrangement ideas for the "Things I've Broken" series [coming soon!!]. Finished the concept for the East Troy Area Country Campers logo [super cool, coming soon!]

No immediate plans for the paper, though as I type this there are some things brewing!!

Brody's DOC Band

If you don't know what a DOC band is, check out this website. A friend of mine had to get one for her son, because his noggin was misshapen. Well, instead of leaving it white, and open to a lot of unwelcome questions [When did he have brain surgery? Will he be all right? Will his brain contents fall all over the floor if he's not wearing it? -okay, that last one was a little exaggerated, but you get the idea-] she asked if I'd help decorate it when they got it.

3 kids, 1 annoyed husband [due to the screaming of kid #3], 24 hours, and this is what you have.


Thank you to Paula Strawn for your advice and direction, to Fredward for your assistance and advice, and to the Rogosienski's for giving me the opportunity.
